New, new, new... (n=18) year

It's not always hazy in my mind this time of the year - but that is only because we have always been served with the conditions that allowed for three- to five-year plans (secondary, college, university, anybody?)

I've finished my first year as a business journalist.

"Hey, it feels like graduation again!"

I wonder how many years Neil Gaiman stayed in the field. Based on his not-too-recent writing, it is no longer a career he's impressed with, and good reasons.

Robert Kiyosaki took 14 years (or less) before he published his first book.

I wonder what knowledge, information, or message I have to offer with my selection of words.

It's hazy now -- I am trying to plan my three- to five-year plan without the usual serving of conditions that allowed -- forced -- it to happen.

God. Blood. Music. Skate. and Writing.

Religion. Family. Media. Fitness. and Stories.

At least those have not changed.

Wait. They did. But at least I still recognise them.

My last message (it's all about perspective) - Koon Yiew Yin

Koon Yew Yin, born January 1933.

His last gift via i3investor upon reaching 84 years of age:

What is poison ??? Anything is more than our necessity is poison such as food, ego, greed etc.

What is fear??? It is non acceptance of uncertainty. If we accept that uncertainty, it becomes adventure.

What is envy??? It is non acceptance of good in others. If we accept that good, it becomes inspiration.

What is anger??? It is non acceptance of things which are beyond our control. If we accept, it becomes tolerance.

What is hatred??? It is non acceptance of a person as he or she is. If we accept him or her unconditionally, it becomes LOVE.
