What are you thankful for at work?

In summer 2017, I felt restless and a sense of learning and trying to do other things as my work. This is not to say that my current work has not been fulfilling, in fact it has allowed me to achieved some of my dreams since years and decades ago. In ubiquitous up-or-go systems, including […]

How to nurture grit?

Albeit having relatively less experience than us, the young can always inspire us. Before Little Princess turned 9 months old, she could already cruised (walking while holding on to the edge of her play pen) – a milestone expected only from those age 9-10 months old.

Why must we imagine?

Little children love to imagine. As grown-ups, we must not forget this natural talent, instead we must nurture our ability to imagine and support it with everything that we have experienced and learned, so that our pro-life, pro-advancement imaginations will be realizations. “Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real.” ~ Jules Verne, […]

How to focus?

On 20160715, I am aware that HappyGreenPanda loves to do easy tasks that can be completed quickly and small projects [5], instead of big projects. However, big projects can often have tremendous effects on one’s success. Think of the analogy of the big rocks, gravel, and sand. On 20160806, after a night of fever and […]
