Thinking…

Thinking is good.

It demonstrates that your mind is still working.

It allows you to be creative and come up with solutions to problems that you face or potentially will face.

It shows that you are a human, smarter than the animals living on this planet.

But what if the process of thinking is broken?

What if it runs on a loop, displaying images or bringing forth feelings or experiences that you hate? Your days ruined. Your relationships destroyed.

Then you start thinking…Maybe your mind is broken?

Or not?

It goes on and on.

What if you done that?

Or what if you said that?

Maybe…just maybe…

Stop!

What are you doing? Why are you wasting time and energy on that?

It’s time to ask yourself…

Can you channel that energy you spend thinking in a loop into solve the world’s problems instead?

How much more productive can you be? How much more effective you will be?

Random Thoughts Collection #1

  1. A nation’s infrastructure is a representation of its wealth and management. Singapore government constantly repairs or repave our roads because it is necessary. A failing infrastructure will cost the nation millions if not billions of dollars. Try imagining poorly maintained roads resulting in traffic accidents or goods tumbling off transport vehicle
  2. I never liked working on legacy systems with limited budget. It feels restrictive… Stifling…maybe part of it is because I wasnt there to build it… Thus never get to see it grow up… So yeah….hate to work on somebody’s stuff
  3. You pay money to subscribe to a service. And then you come with an expectation of how the service should be. So if there’s something wrong you’ll get upset and wonder why you even pay for that service. And if the customer support goes the extra mile, you are happy. It’s the same thing as being an employee. The concept is exactly the same. The company pay you for a service and therefore they expect to get their money worth. So does it make sense for company to continue to pay you for poor service? Are you as the service provider even worth the kind of money?
  4. Glass half full or half empty. Neither. It is simultaneously full and empty.
  5. In your writing, it is necessary to achieve a balance between your privacy, authenticity and vulnerability. You don’t want to be revealing too much details about your life but reveal enough to show that it’s real.

The many form of writings

Poetry is a form of writing.

Copy is a form of writing.

Journalism is a form of writing.

Books, be it fiction or non-fiction requires writing.

Television and movie scripts requires writing.

Programming is a form of writing.

Posting on social media requires writing.

There is writing involved almost everywhere and the question is do you simply enjoy the process of writing, creating content or when do enjoy something else that you have yet identified while working on any of the above?

I for one enjoy the process of writing for the sole purpose of sharing my ideas and/or solutions.

Thought Snapshot #3

Snippet #1

It’s very simple really. If you need to buy something with your credit card or on installment plan, then you are too poor to buy it. You can’t afford it. So don’t buy it. The only time you can afford it is when you can pay the full amount upfront.

Snippet #2

You work so hard to earn the money just so that you can compare with people around you by filling your life with things. When your health start failing you, you start spending the money you have earned for the purpose of comparison. At the end of it, you have no things to speak of, no health to speak of, and no wealth to speak of. You are better off dead.

Snippet #3

What’s the worse thing that could happen to a writer? A writer’s block brought on by his own incompetence and lack of exposure.
