Going Down South Tomorrow

Tomorrow, I shall be going down south to KL with my colleague early in the morning. We will return by Wednesday. I have already been booked for an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) on Thursday at 9:30am at a local hospital for tendonitis and frozen shoulder. The medication and doctor’s consultation of $50 cost a total of $98.05. This is just the beginning and many more visits and thank goodness, I am covered by Prudential insurance and SOCCO. The maximum one can claim from Prudential is $3,000. MRI is about $800 in another hospital that I had gone for the same condition 3 years ago. My colleague will also visit his varsity mates who will gather there for a reunion at a local club in KL.

Meanwhile, Leia, my Pomeranian puppy was sent to pet boarding yesterday while the 4 Holland Lop rabbits were sent to pet boarding during dinner time. This frees us of our time taking care of furry kids!

So Busy Hustling

I flew back by Firefly yesterday afternoon having gone to KL early in the morning and waking up at 5:00am to catch the 6:50am flight with boarding time at 6:20am. When we came back, went to collect company’s t-shirts that are ready for payment to pass over 10 pieces to our workers in KL. Since they work in a factory, they have to wear uniforms to work and get permission to enter the premise to work. I also have to revise some of Trip101 articles which are thankfully, not many for this month.

Later tonight, have to print out old quotations for amendments to existing client and then revised the BQ for submission of tender by 12:00noon on Monday. On Tuesday, it was scheduled to settle the GST payment for the months of July to September. This morning, also went for physiotherapy for about 1 hours on my right arm, costing me $75.

Later on after dinner, have to buy a set of ink cartridges and paper that is running out, due to daily printing of enquiries, quotations, etc. Hence, this blog was unattended for the past few days due to work commitment. I also have dozens of trip101 articles to write and complete.

31 Days of Productivity

31 Days of Productivity

The above infographic showcases 31 days of productivity. Here are some of them that I shall pick up at random. Drink water as soon as you wake up. It is recommended to drink 2 glasses each morning before breakfast due to the 8 hours of fast or sleep. Organise your workspace and declutter unnecessary stuffs. Meditate for 10 minutes to recharge your inner being and rejuvenate your soul from the hustle and bustle of working life. Choose one task and automate it or delegate it. Let someone better do the troubleshooting if that is your weakness and spend productive time doing something else that you are good at and earns you more money.

Don’t spend too much time doing mundane things that appear to be your weakness and instead, concentrate on doing something which is your strong point. Eat a healthy meal such as fruits and vegetables, minus the carbohydrates if possible. And don’t forget to hug someone who loves you; could be your pet! 🙂

Reward yourself for your biggest accomplishment of the month. And whatever money you made, try to spend less than you earn for a golden retirement in years to come. Hopefully it is not woeful one like a real case in point: an accountant was afflicted with diabetes and could no longer work; finally without constant income, he had to sell off his house and live in the streets, becoming homeless with no family or friends to visit him. Such is a destitute case despite being a professional in his younger years! This is one extreme case, but we always hope and pray for the best and be generous to others so that wealth will come to you. What you fear in your heart may become a reality. So always focus on positive thoughts despite all the negative news and events happening worldwide.

10 Habits of Self-Made Millionaires

10 Habits of Self-Made Millionaires

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.

So, there they are. The 10 Habits of Self-Made Millionaires. Read the infographic for more details by double clicking on it. Hope you enjoy reading this as much as I do.

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.

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.

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.
