One Hundred Seventy Nine

Leadership and entrepreneurship co-exist together. You can't be a great entrepreneur without being a good leader first and foremost.

How does a leader lead?

You inspire. How? You set an example, or a template. You work ethics will become a benchmark to your followers.

You set the pace. You navigate. You follow up every instruction. You care for those working with you. You get involved. You take charge. You listen.

You set the course. You become the captain, not the life boat.

One Hundred Seventy Eight

My bestfriend and I were deciding on a pengapit for her wedding which is around the corner.

Moi: Hmm, kenapa tak pilih kita jadi pengapit je?

Her: Tak boleh, nanti awak outshine kita.

Moi: 🙄

Moi: Okay what about An?

Her: Too small.

Moi: Syah?

Her: Too young.

Moi: Mims?

Her: Yes! Her!

Moi: Tapi, nak ke dia?

One Hundred Seventy Seven

Writing is best when emotional.

Especially in rage or in sadness.

Probably it's just me, and how I channel such feelings.

Probably sharing isn't as exciting now. The tendency to keeping things to oneself is high now.

One Hundred Seventy Six

I am not feeling very well. My body’s aching, my throat is sore.

And I cried.

“Makin kita besar, makin kurang tempat bergantung kan?” I asked, sobbing.

“Tak lah, cuma tukar tempat bergantung aje.”

One Hundred Seventy Five

I've been suffering from this writer's block since yesterday.

I had to write four 500-word essays yesterday and I managed to write 3 in less than 2 hours, hands down, pats on my back. All three received commendable comments from those who checked, and I was happy with their outcome.

When it comes to the forth one, I was suddenly stuck. I had no idea what to write about... and deadline is almost knocking on my door. I was so upset and discouraged that I probably portrayed a different kind of self to my husband.

He was so worried he immediately asked me out (LOL) for a drink and listened to what bothered me. And now, right at the moment I am writing this, he's sharing a number of articles to help me with my writing.

I'm all smiley now. Thank you sayang. Those articles really come in handy. They are very very helpful!

One Hundred Seventy Four

I still think Blogger needs an app (a working one) where I can easily access and pen down my thoughts anywhere I like. I am not with my laptop all the time. Jadi when I feel like all writing, I couldn't do it because of you Blogger! Grrr.

It's November. I'm scared, to be honest. Many deadlines are around the corner, my best friend's giving birth today, I have a life-changing decision to make (well it's already made, the processes that come with it takes time), payments due etc. Patutlah ramai orang rindu nak jadi kanak-kanak balik. Sigh.

One Hundred Seventy Three

Hayl asks challenging questions which usually starts with "Why" or "How".

Like, how does a dragon drink (does it even exist)? Or how long have Youtube been there (I asked him to google the history of Youtube)... why did kak Rose say this and that in Upin Ipin?

Most of the times, truthfully, we don't even have answers for these. As a matter of fact, these questions never really cross our mind!

Growing children are curious. They are absorbing fast through their observations and experience.

Stimulate their thoughts. Don't discourage them from thinking and asking even if it tires or annoys you. Don't shut them from being curious.

So yesterday he asked another difficult one, "Do USA want to (wage) war with North Korea? Why?" I asked him to google instead 😝 "Asyik gooogle je!" he replied.

Frankly honey, I would need to google myself to give you the answer. You might as well do the googling yourself.
