Putting the Cart before the Horse

Many projects failed,
Because there is no understanding,
Of a science of human behavior,
And by putting the Cart before the Horse,
They have no control,
Leaving things to uncharted waters,
Market forces that destroy,
Let me set the direction,
By putting the Horse back before the Cart,
By gather information before embaking on a project,
Lifestyle, spending habits, census, everything,
Even gathering info on your competition,
So when I am ready,
I already know all the paths,
The pitfalls not to take,
To avoid direct and confrontation competition,
That will lead me to success. 

How to get out of Debt

If today you are in debt,
You can borrow from future earnings,
To repay the present,
But you must do the extraordinary,
By putting extra effort,
To tremendously increase your income,
Or by having multiple income,
That is more than your debt.
Therefore it is posssible,
To generate a financial plan,
To renegiotiate with your creditors,
Reorganise your financials,
In order to solve your problem.

Creating the Perfect Economy

In the present economy,
People create supply,
Then look for demand,
But in the new economy,
People will determine demand first,
Then create supply,
In this manner,
We have created,
The Perfect Economy,
Where Demand equals Supply.
Not all sectors,
Can use this model,
But it is now possible,
To iron out the imperfects,
By collecting information first before supply,
And getting demand as close to supply. 
No use implimenting minimum wages, it is better to solve the problem

If you r trying to raise the standard of living
Do not put the cart before the horse
First by solving the problems of the poor
By solving unemployment for Singaporeans
Everything is under the control of the government
And it has the resources to overcome
By allocating jobs for the poor
By setting aside premises for hawkers and food centres/markets
And shops in new towns at subsidised rates for Singaporeans
Setup a centre to co-ordinate such activities like the CDC
Give them a fish and it will feed them for a meal
Teach them to fish and they will have meals to last a lifetime
No point increasing the cost of living when they can’t swim
Only seek to increase one’s coffers when there is money in everyone’s pockets

“I am confident that we have the knowledge and the means to make the 21st century the most peaceful, prosperous, interesting time in all human history. The question is whether we have the wisdom and the will.”
–President Bill Clinton, from the Dimbleby Memorial Lecture given by the former U.S. President at the Institute of Education in London, December 18, 2001

“In this new world, economic strength will be more important than military strength.”

“In the application of Satyagraha, I discovered, in the earliest stages, that pursuit of Truth did not admit of violence being inflicted on one’s opponent, but that he must be weaned from error by patience and sympathy. For what appears to be truth to one may appear to be error to the other. And patience means self-suffering. So the doctrine came to mean vindication of Truth, not by infliction of suffering on the opponent but one’s own self.”
– Gandhi

“Money is an important resource but in God’s Kingdom, the least important.” – Oogle

Our poverty, God's dwelling place

Our poverty, God’s dwelling place

How can we embrace poverty as a way to God when everyone around us wants to become rich? Poverty has many forms. We have to ask ourselves; “What is my poverty?”
Is it a lack of money, lack of emotional stability, lack of loving partner, lack of security, lack of safety, lack of self confidence….?Each human being has a place in poverty. That’s the place where God wants to dwell! “How blessed are the poor,” Jesus says (Mathew 5:3). This means taht our blessings is hidden in our poverty.
We are so inclined to cover up our poverty and ignore it that we often miss the opportunity to discover God, who dwells in it. Let’s dare to see our poverty as the land in which our treasure is hidden – Henri JM Nouwen.

Choosing Love

Choosing Love

How can someone ever trust in the existence of an unconditional divine love when most, if not all, of what he or she has experienced is the opposite of love – fear, hatred, violence, and abuse?
They are not condemned to be victims! There remains within them hidden as it may seem, the possibility to chose love. Many people who have suffered the most horrendous rejections and been subject to the most cruel torture have been able to chose love. By chosing love they become witnesses not only to human resiliency but also to the divine love that transcend all human loves. Those who choose, even on a small scale, to love in the midst of hatred and fear are the people who offer true hope to our world.

Small Steps of Love

How can we choose love when we have experienced so little of it? We chose love by taking small steps of love every time there is an opportunity. A smile, a handshake, a word of encouragement, a phone call, a card, an embrace, a kind greeting, a gesture of support, a moment of attention, a helping hand, a present, a financial contribution, a visit – all these are little steps towards love.
Each step is like a candle burning in the night. It does not take the darkness away, but it guides us through the darkness. When we look back after many small steps of love, we will discover that we have made a long and beautiful journey.

The Greatest Love

“Faith, Hope, Love, these three; but the greatest of these is Love.” I Corinthians 13:13

“Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gifts he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”
I Peter 4 :9-10

“Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.” John 6 :27

The Source of all Love

“In order not to be destroyed by the wounds inflicted by that imperfect human love, we must trust that the source of all love is God’s unlimited, unconditional, perfect love, and that this love is not far away from us but is the gift of God’s Spirit dwelling within us.”

Henri J M Nouwen was a Dutch Catholic priest who shared his life with people with mental disabilities as pastor of the I’ Arche Daybreak Community, Toronto, Canada. He was the author of more than thirty books on spiritual life, including The Return of the Prodigal Son, The Wounded Healer and The Genesee Diary (all DLT). He died in September 1996.

There is no shortcut to Success

There is no shortcut to Success

Thruout my lifetime,
I have searching for that shortcut,
You name it, I have tried it but without success,
Even with the most powerful software to visualise,
There isn’t a shortcut to success.
Unless you are born with a silver spoon,
But even you have money today doesn’t mean you have it tomorrow,
Unless you are prudent and know how to manage it,
For the rest of us, it’s carrying our cross,
And make our living as anyone else.
The secret to success is hard work,
Day by day you build your wealth,
Solving problems by problems,
Remember you need to cross that bridge,
Before you reach the next stage,
And if you fail it will set you back,
If you are not able to climb back up,
You are already a failure,
Cause Life is a series of bridges you must cross,
And never look back,
That is the challenge of success,
With logical planning and hard work,
And a little bit of luck,
The next bridge you cross may bring you great tidings,
Or your next windfall.

No man is an island

No man is an island

Mankind has always been social creatures,
And the need to interact and love exists since time,
Friends, relations and aquantances,
Form an intergrated circle we can do without,
We depend on their influence and support,
To solve problems in life,
But the sad fact is they have become self centred,
Only concerned about themselves,
To be better than their neighbours,
In this silly rat race,
What is really enough?
The sacrifices for your morals,
Compromised and defeated,
Mankind will always struggle,
With issues of the world,
They seek enlightenment in all the wrong places,
And put up a false front,
Take the log out from your eye,
Before you complain about your brother’s,
Cause what you do will come round,
Back to haunt you,
Nothing hidden under your bed,
Will one day be revealed,
So why don’t you do good,
And purge your conscience,
So that your night’s sleep,
Will be so very sweet,
And if we do not do what others may follow,
The world will be definitely a better place to live in.
