Whether the decisions that you make is the right or the wrong one. It’s never easy to be honest but sometimes we just need to you just to take a leap of faith.
I usually leap first before thorough thinking. Not the best thing to do but at least I am decisive. Being decisive to me is very important. Quick thinking is good. But I guess it does apply to a lot of things. It has created quite a bit of problem to me in the past but I learn to live with it because it is important for me to take ownership of my decisions.
There are several things that I practice though:
We do what we need to do to make it happen
No harm trying. What worst can happen.
In fact for the second principle – a wise business guru told me before in a short coffee session… in Malay
Mencuba Itu Hak … Mendapat Itu Rezeki
Which means in English – to try is your right, and to get it is your profit. Which is true. Especially when I was doing sales. We should just try. Worst comes to worst – you won’t get the deal. But of course we need to consider the fact that doing it may incur irrecoverable cost. Writing proposals are not cheap.
So anyway – in the past couple of years – I have not been very discipline. Seriously – been doing things without thinking of the implications. And these are not matters surrounding my job but mostly personal decisions. Example – deciding what to eat. Haha.
So I guess – I need to start a program. Earlier last year I embarked on a 365 days project, which was going very well until I fell off the bandwagon. Perhaps it’s good time to start again. Now that I have more control of my time; it’s only wise to do start this again.
It’s not going to be easy but I must do it. The question remains whether I want am o be public about it. Haha. I remember posting the day summary. Everyday. Perhaps time to restart again. It was very effective I must say. So I guess – today is day zero. Tomorrow is day 1!
I was in a rush just now and was buying a new iPad. I should have looked properly. I do remember that I asked for a cellular model, but ended up getting the WiFi model. Sigh. This is super annoying, but its ok la. Using a 4G model is good, but when I roam its not that I can use it and I need to tether from my phone anyway!
I am trying to make myself comfortable with this, which I am sure I can. Tethering is easy. In fact – a lot of my friends are using tethering now instead of using 4G. It’s convenient but its not the best option. Battery could be an issue ? No? Ha ha. It’s ok.
So now – rather than going back to change, its totally my fault for not checking the stock. Really – my fault. Was rushing. Should have looked properly. I guess I just need to get use to it. At least for the next couple of years…. 🙂
I know what I want to do with the iPad – so lets just use for what I want to use it for. He he. Which is reading…. and more reading. And more blogging perhaps.
There are few scenarios that can be interpret here:
Ex Prime Minister has found a much stronger legal team to defend the alleged incoming charges against him.
The legal team from the US (allegedly he hired some strong team) cannot work with the current legal team, and hence they are changing that.
The legal team thinks that its going to be a losing case hence they abandon ship.
The legal team subjected to intimidation from hidden hand causing them to abandon ship.
Well to be honest, there is no case now to start with. There have been so much rumor and media article portraying the ex-PM as a criminal. We need to go by the principle that people are innocent until proven guilty. In fact, he had only been called for questioning and no charges have been made against him. Until that happen let’s see. Media is doing trial without a jury now!
I am apolitical – as such I hope the people who are guilty are brought to justice. The alleged corruption that is put against the ex-PM is worst than what people thought. It is not just about 1MDB but about a lot more. If that’s all true – it is a blatant use of power for own personal gain. And again – truth is a perception of what the lawyers made to the court. Perception can be deceived thru smart use of words and evidence. In fact – technicality can also be employed that is the worst. Well – I am not a law expert, such is by watching too much of television.
This week we also finally get the new Attorney General(AG). Apparently he is one of the best lawyers out there. I am keen to see how that will change the landscape. In fact – having a strong AG is important. I remember watching some stupid videos in which our AG team can’t even speak decent English.
Just watch the video above. It so hideous. I think me as a lawyer can probably defend or question in a much better way. But anyway – it does not matter anymore. No point looking at the past and pointing fingers, the most important for us is to look forward and hope the best for Malaysia. There are so many new things coming, and with a culmination of all the good things, hopefully the perception of Malaysia will change and our growth will be turbocharged! Foreign investors look at the stability of a country. And it is important for us to create fundamental framework based on the rule of law that will enable business to flourish.
Anyway – the development is still coming. We know what we know.
