From Visually.

The above infographic is certainly pertinent to our current society, regardless of where you stay or which country you are from. Here, I shall summarise the 10 Habits of Self-Made Millionaires below:

1) Thinking in Abundance – 2.3 trillion dollars are circulating around the globe everyday; are you one of the number of active participation?

2) Surround Yourself with Like Minded Individuals – you are the sum of 5 people you spend the most time with.

3) Shift Focus from Spending Money to Making Money – instead of becoming a consumer, become a producer.

4) No TV!

5) Have Multiple Streams of Income – eg. rental income, fixed deposits, dividends, shares, online income, etc

6) Be Generous – Blessed are the generous for they will obtain wealth.

7) Have an Exit Strategy – Ultimately all multimillionaires and even billionaires get their biggest breaks when they sell their business.

8) Get into Properties – Properties will hedge against inflation and earn you rental income like Airbnb, HomeAway, VRBO, etc

9) Leaders are Readers – read widely and be voracious readers to gain insights into the minds of successful people.

10) Always be Hustling – no point dreaming without taking action.

I just had dinner at New Dragon Gate Seafood Restaurant with my business partner and spouse, inside Red Rock Hotel, formerly known as Mandarin Hotel along Macalister Road. It is located conveniently near our condo and we were out for dinner at around 9:00pm where most of the eateries are closing.

Hence, this blog may or may not be updated for another week as I shall be on the go all the time traveling for work.

How to Stay Productive when you are Tired

How to stay productive when you are tired

The above infographic is long, well developed and took much time preparing. It is self-explantory and this gives me some tips as well on how to stay productive even when I am tired.

1) Do the most important task first;
2) Take a 5-minute break every one hour;
3) Deactivate emails and phone notifications; (This is a no go for me as they have to be on while I am working)
4) Stretch your legs regularly;
5) Drink a cuppa of coffee;
6) Work from a coffee shop for 1 hour; (Well, I work from home)
7) Drink water from a bottle with hydration tracker;
8) Work while standing up; (I will walk around and read newspapers)
9) Listen to soothing music; (by this I only listen to sentimentals)
10) Work by a Window to get fresh air;
11) Keep a bottle of peppermint oil on your desk;

Well, the above summarises the infographic created by a talented designer with artistic tendency. I hope you find it informative, just as I have and it helps me to continue pushing to my limits and work hard for my retirement savings. Not forgeting I now have a 5 month old Pomeranian puppy and 2 white Holland Lop rabbits and 2 brown Holland lop mixed with long haired Angora rabbits. It is a full time job taking care of them.

16 Simple Motivation Tips to Get More Done

16 Simple Motivation Tips to Get More Done

The above is a detailed and long infographic specially designed to show case the 16 Simple Motivation Tips to Get More Done. As it is self-explanatory, I shall not go into detail other than the summary. It is pertinent to me too and teaches one not to be a perfectionist but to be excellent in whatever endeavour your pursue. Also plan for tomorrow by tonight or jot down roughly what you want to do and spend the time productively; you can also plan it in your head, instead of jotting down if you can remember.

As for me, I am too lazy to jot down, so I always plan ahead and try to maximise the time that I have NOW. It is also good to give back to society to invest in life after death. Do some charitable work or pray and spend some quiet time alone with God to recharge and let the Holy Spirit be your beacon of light to guide you through this treacherous path called ‘life’

Get the right tools and use technology to help you out. The internet is your world of oyster where all informationn can be found. Just know how to separate the wheat from the chaff. Also, enjoy the moment and don’t sleep too much; otherwise you will come to poverty. Anyone who loves to eat, enjoy life and sleep without working or lifting a finger will surely come to poverty and become hungry.

While working, enjoy your life and sometimes pamper yourself now and then like eating delicacies or going for spas and massages to help rejuvenate and destress to chase the blues away. Live life to the fullest and work hard and smart. Whether you are in business or working for others as an employee, remember to save more than you spend to save up for your retirement so that it is golden and not woeful.

50 Productivity Tips

50 Productivity Tips

The inforgraphic above shows 50 Productivity Tips for your perusal. Take you time to digest them and apply in your life. Then your boss will notice that whatever you do prospers and bring in great results. You will be favoured over other colleagues. With God’s help, you should be able to be productive and be excellent at whatever endeavour you pursue. Here, I shall not summarise whatever what written in the infographic, but give my point of view.

Read up productivity books and finance books to get the seed ideas which become habits and then actions which produces great results. The news is bombarded with too many negative news which happen to sell; hence we need to feed our minds with positive news and counter the negative ones. Even poisonous people that come into our lives, we need to avoid them like the plaque and enjoy our own solitude to create business ideas and take massive action. We need to have quiet time with God also and with ourselves to ponder and reflect daily on rejuvenate and charge up our ‘batteries’.

With all the above said, good luck to your work, business venture, frienships, family relationships, etc.

Searching for That JOB

After graduating in 1994, I remember looking fervently for a job and I applied to dozens of companies, where a few called me up for an interview, before finally landing myself a job in a computer school. I became an IT trainer, teaching Microsoft Office applications like Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Access. I also taught BASIC programming at a junior level. I recalled working 9 hours in a row, with each lesson lasting 3 hours. If we have 3 lessons in a day, we called it ‘caterpillar’ and if there is a break of 3 hours in between, we called it ‘butterfly’. I don’t know why it was named as such, but those where the days we colleagues destress by cracking jokes, usually related to the private parts. 🙂 And we laughed over it during recess time.

I have had my share of filling up to 4 -6 forms of details on the spot and wait for the interview afterwards. In Singapore, there will always be x-rays done and medical checkups before you are cleared for employment. I recalled going for at least 5 x-rays for every new job that intended to hire me. Some lasted long while others were short stints. After 12 long years of ‘hardship’ of studying and working, I finally called it quits and returned to Penang, Malaysia for a slower pace of life.

For most people a JOB is ‘Just Over Broke’, which I fully agree. You are paid just enough so that you won’t leave and Not more! I was living from paycheque to paycheque and was always broke at the end of the month, leaving my bank account to 2 digits and even 1 digit one time! There was no savings in any form and it was all into expenditure to pay for bills, shopping, etc.

Well, now I am happy to say, I landed myself a Dream job to work in a home office doing administrative work and also maintaing the company website that I designed. By God’s grace and some luck, I got myself a moderately understanding boss who was initially my website client and now we work together on many projects. He helms the company while I do all the computer work or any work related to computers. And the workstation is just a walk to the next room, working in my pajamas.

Condo in Damansara

Nice condo in Damansara

I was at a client’s place in Damansara where we have a current project. For the sake of the business, I shall not reveal which Condo it was, but suffice to say it was one of the oldest and most well-kept condos in Damansara. Here, you can see the beautiful blue-tiled pool surrounded by greenery with red blooms or chili fruits which adds to the attraction of the place.
