I was reading an article on CNN that we need to limit the human population for us to survive. Link here.
I feel that we need to look closely at our lives and see whether they are going to last for the next 100,200 years or more. I have even thought of a few possibilities in terms of transport, business and food
Just have a read and give a thought to it. Where will we be if we do not make a change?
How many would invite you?
Next month, I have 2 invitations to my ex-staff's weddings. Congratulations guys and see you there! Anyway, it got me thinking and I tested this on a few people I know. How many of you would invite your ex-manager or ex-colleagues to your wedding/birthday/celebration?
It makes a good point to think of how you interact and treat people you know, whether they are your direct reports, peers, superiors or other colleagues. How will you be remembered? How will you be treated? If you feel that you aren't being included, you have to think to yourself why are you being excluded and how can you change (if you want to).

Don't work on your birthday
Sorry for the short hiatus, been down with a bad flu and had lots on my mind the last few weeks....
How many times have you celebrated your birthday at work? Doing your job, getting stressed, sometimes getting acknowledged it is your birthday, and sometimes not?
I learnt many years ago that it is better not to work on your birthday as it is a day for you to celebrate how you want, with who you want. A day for yourself to relax and ponder of the past year and what you have done.
So, just take a day off when it is your birthday. Relax and enjoy yourself instead of stressing on work.
Techie tuned entrepreneur... wonder how the journey will be like and will I be able to succeed?
