Reflections

A deceptively simple rating “1-10” with 10 being the ultimate ideal state. This rating is what I sometimes ask my clients to give me a quick score of how they are doing. We first detail what “10” means to them and discover what the gaps are, if any. 
 
I say “if any” but always get “so many” (gaps).

Motivation comes up often in my discussions with clients when they talk about themselves and their team members. I am careful not to let the discussion get into the "either s/he is self-motivated or not". Having these 2 camps doesn’t serve much purpose beyond hinting at one camp being easier to deal with and somewhat superior to the other. Also, this seems to imply that a person in either camp reacts similarly in all aspects of life.

During Chinese New Year, it’s customary for mandarin oranges to be exchanged when visiting homes. The gifting of oranges to and fro signifies prosperity and other well wishes being shared to all and is a wonderful tradition I remember beyond the red packets, multitude of cookies and goodies during my favourite festive season. When growing up, I often recall my parents buying boxes of big luscious mandarin oranges, so much larger than the size of my palms and often shiny-looking while ever so fragrant.

I see will.i.am more as an innovator and disruptor beyond the music performer he is most known as. William Adams (born March 15, 1975), known by his stage name will.i.am (pronounced Will I Am) is the founding member of the hip-hop/pop band The Black Eyed Peas, famous for songs like “Where is the Love?”, “Let’s Get it Started”, “I Gotta Feeling” and more. He’s also released four solo albums and produced with an A-list of music artists.

Today I had the privilege to be interviewed by Eugene Loh in his motivational programme A Slice of Life on 938LIVE radio station. I say privilege because Eugene himself has a high level of awareness and passionate about knowing his values and living by them.
 
My topic "The choices we make" centres around how our core values reflect what is important to us. We are motivated by our personal values and together with our beliefs, they are the causal factors that drive our decision-making.

Khalil Gibran (sometimes spelled Kahlil) was a Lebanese artist, poet, and writer and the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Laozi. He is undoubtedly my favourite poet and philosopher on life, love, lost and more. In his most famous book, The Prophet, Khalil Gibran offers the following prose poetry on children.
 
    On Children by Khalil Gibran
 
    Your children are not your children.
