Aim Beyond*

It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be
By Paul Arden

This is a book that is one of the best sellers by Phaidon Press at this time.

I bought it yesterday at 350 Baht at Kinokuniya, Isetan. The book is very easy to read with pictures and bigger font size. I could finish it last night (FYI, I am not a book lover and rarely finish a book completely).

Some messages are known facts, but we (I) sometimes ignore and forget to think about them. Reading this is encouraging and it tells me to aim high, so that I always try to be BETTER (not just GOOD ENOUGH).

And now I at least found out that I like reading this type of books. I also noticed that there were 2 more books by this writer. I might consider buying them later.

Eat One a Week*

Wednesday, 25 June 2008 § 2 Comments

Reading this, I am urged to start my reading again. I have more than 5 books unfinished. I started a few and have not completed one of them. I bought some as a collection, e.g. The Chronicles of Narnia, and I have just finished one of the 7 books.. (Oh, so now I have more than 10 books unread, I think).

To my feeling, I may like reading a non-fiction one more than a fiction, but The Chronicles of Narnia and Pricess Diary are exceptions. How many exceptions will I have!?!?

OK.. Got urged.. and now I will just have to TRY HARDER to learn how to EAT books.

:p

He turns to be an employee of the parent company and that makes me feel like we are not colleagues, although, actually, we are.

The major change is that he would not fully and be involved in any correspondence with my company’s customer. Saw his e-mail address domain has change today. Kinda weird, but probably it is just the time to move on.

He is still there to support when I need help or suggestion.

However, I’ve gotta wait until he is accustomed to his new life in Dubai first; while, I will do my best from here and also try to work in the Japan office as usual (just not feel familiar with the new salesrep as yet).

Well.. yea..

Sales & Marketing*

Friday, 29 February 2008 § Leave a comment

Just being asked by my boss whether I had thought of the offer to have a training in UK, I said I was considering that.

My boss added that since Shoji (Japanese salesrep) saw a potential in Thailand, he recommended we had a sales. Sandy (bigger boss) said that I might be able to handle both Sales & Marketing, and I go to UK for a product training.

That is very interesting. I have more idea what I am expected to do there. This is more than just web developing, but also product training.

Interesting, innit? :)

Candle*

Currently, I have my candle (got from a senior colleauge) lit and shining in front of me.

Although the candle is not a large one, I can feel the warmth and see the bright moon-like light.

Although the candle is small, I am touched with a hug of warmth.

Although the candle cannot do anything else, apart from being lit and shining, I thank it for the lightness, the brightness, and the warmth.

Those are being delivered into my heart.

WHALES
2 November 2007

Dear Greenpeace’s Supporters,

One click signup for mail whale

arrowName the whale – a lifetime chance to name a humpback whale.

A once in a lifetime experience – your chance to name a humpback whale.

As part of the Great Whale Trail project, which is tracking whales via satellite, we have some humpback whales that need names. Not just any names, but some great names for some great whales.

We haven’t yet cracked the code of whale language so we don’t know what the whales call themselves but we are pretty confident they don’t call themselves, ‘33001, or 37232’, which are some of the names they have now.

Click here to go to The Great Whale Trail project

Click here to see the Whale Profiles

Click here to name the whale

Thanks,
The Whale ‘Tag Team’.

Where Am I?
