朋友

没那麼简单 就能找到 聊得来的伴

简单又写实的歌词,听到感慨不已。。。

 

MSN和Facebook里的朋友不少过千人,同时在线的少说也有百人。

可是又有几个会主动地跟你聊天?

朋友多的是, 可以交心的没几个。。。

 

是否有过无所不谈,兴趣相同的朋友?

有几个一直都保持联络? 还是已经不再联络?

因为工作,时间少了。

年级大了,话题少了。

各自也有了家庭和生活。

就这样,彼此就慢慢的疏远了。

 

虽然我们已经很少聊天,可是我还是会关心你的近况。

可能不会时常的想起你,还是会偶尔发短讯给你,也会怀念大家在一起的欢笑。

 

也许是人老了,朋友就少了。

有空就多点和朋友联络吧!

 

Timing and decision

On March 13, 2010, in English, General, My work, by Kok mING

Timing is the top most critical factor for success. In Chinese, we have a phrase “天时,地利,人和” which can be translated to perfect timing, strategic location, established human relationship.

At times, we have to make difficult decision along the journey of life. You could have the best decision making skill but still fail.

The chances of making decision will grow as you gain age. Decision can be tough when there are too much to consider.

No one can tell the perfect timing to make and implement important decision. Simply because, you would not know what happen after your decision. If it turns out good, then you are in good timing or vice versa…

3 months ago, I decided resign and change my career back to a software developer. Yes, from a Professional Services manager to software developer in a newly start up offshore development centre.

A lot was yelling I am crazy or some even say this is a very bad move. That is a big NO NO to trade off your talent / capability for the sake of money (higher pay). Yes, I know it is very risky backward move… but this doesn’t mean I will lost all knowledge and experiences. I am taking a step back to regain my direction and forward planning.

Now, people start praising me… and say that the timing for me to leave is just perfect.

You know why? It is because the company had shut down and some got retrenched too. So, this incident had changed people’s view on my decision.

I am not the oracle, I don’t know what will happen. During that time, my decision is driven by my financial needs and I trade off my career. Anyway, I don’t feel lucky or happy because I am escaped. I feel sad since the shut down had caused some people lost their job.

I want to share with you, no one can tell you the perfect timing for everything. If you believe it is right time to do it, then just do it without regret. Simple as that!

Do the right thing, as long as you are happy then you’ll be alright. Good luck!
