Reflections

This is something I’ve felt strongly about since my first pregnancy and taking public transport in Singapore.
 
The idea is that we have better chance motivating a few “connectors” than motivating the general public to be more observant and give up their seats or do the right thing - which varies from moving in to make more boarding space, placing your bags on the floor to prevent “hitting” others, being more considerate by using headphones etc.

In the pursuit of happiness and fulfilment, we increasingly come across mentions of:
 
  • Mindfulness
  • Awareness
  • Being conscious
  • Living in the moment
  • Present experience

I’ve heard, read, discussed, tried, misunderstood and relearned much on this ongoing journey of mindfulness and to just be. From my experience, I can recommend adopting a plant.

This post pays tribute to my client who believed in himself and took up the challenge to master “Pine Apple Rag” on the piano before this Chinese New Year (31 Jan 2014). He made it, sent me this video recording and allowed me to share.

Once again reminded of Flobot's "Handlebars" song together with quote "With Great Powers Comes Great Responsibility" from Uncle Ben in Spiderman today. Basically, how we have in us the potential for much creation and destruction, hand in hand, side by side.
 
The important question is "Who's keeping tabs?"
I suggest you keep you own.

Many want to write a bestseller, I just want to have an app to call my own. It happened this very day with "xpressFIVE Chai Coaching edition" (intro video below).

A wise old owl sat in an oak,
The more he heard, the less he spoke;
The less he spoke, the more he heard;
Why aren't we all like that wise old bird?

We came across this classic nursery rhyme recently and I found it very apt. The rhyme teaches children the virtues of being quiet - i.e. to be seen and not heard. Just like an owl's behaviour of watching and patiently waiting when hunting its prey in the darkness of the night.
