Qin ming observation
A whole table of expensive offerings
Two packets of vegetarian noodles with coffee and incense some fruits, placed on the floor
To me, both are essentially the same - visiting their ancestors or long lost friend.

Above are most of the things that are in my mind nowadays.
Sounds crazy. but
I feel blessed that although there are so many things going on at the same time. I have a really strong base of people that i can count on to make things happen - Staff and owners at Protect-SG and Combat-REV and marketing team. Steve, GL, Alvin, Niap. My family. My undestanding and supportive friends. My wonderful girlfriend.
I feel contented.
I will never stop striving to get better in all the above.

I have started to sent out resume once again and that is simply because i really need to top up my savings once again. Starting a business and doing full time ain't that easy afterall, especially when it is at an industry where folks do not see a genuine long term future in. BUT, determine i am to make this venture something different from others that have strided out. We are going to be the best out there.
There are fears in me, definitely.
How am i going to keep near to zero income when i have a girlfriend - marraige needs money, dating needs money etc.
What am i going to do when the current tide of students inflow die down?
What am i going to do with my instructors if they do not listen to my instructions? - as they just like smrt bus drivers, or sia pilots; the business moves because of their services.
My parents ain't getting younger and my bother and i will need to make this successfull in a certain period if not we will need to step out of it because we will need to support our parents; this is also true for our instructors - can't be paying them peanuts all the way, resulting problem will suffice.
Understand each problem really needs a plan and a thought process to solve it. And that is how i am going to approach it. Not waiting for things to happen, because i just simply cannot do that.

Start from the last present that past.
I just had a really good day with jiafang at chomp chomp - the Orh Zian, Satay, Cha kwa tiao, Sugarcane drink, Smoked Chicken Wings. It was so much nice food it feels so good spending time with my gf. We both had a fruitful day, she did two races in two days and i had tkd in the morning and working in the gym in the noon.
Life's been revolving around the gym and the development of the gym. It's been a challenging and yet relaxed in a freedom sense. I get to do what i want because i am my own boss. I get to do things the way i want to do things; i control when, how, why, what, whom of the whole business. Its amazing. Going into end 2012 and planning for a HUGE 2013. That is my focus + my girlfriend and my family :)
I am going to take a quan jia fu (family picture) tomorrow. and it will be a really good break for everyone, doing one thing together. Though for a brief moment of the day. What nostalgic reminder, its been 1 year since graduation. I have done much.
Much more to go! HUAT AH!

I had a really good day actually. haha. I did a to do list, replied emails, did at least 10 pages of chapter one (its hardcore alot of details), completed wingkiong's volunteer project accounts, bought juices for students, had a good 8 rounds of boxing with the kids. It was fun!
I think it worked! The chat with niap, the goal setting everyday via to do list.
The hardwork that has been missing in me. Actually, to be frank, the drive that i always had.
So excited for tomorrow to come! got to try to finsih chapter one and two tonight. can't sleep anyways.

I am jobless, and frankly speaking, it feels quite empty. UNTIL, reality check sets in when i wake up everyday - my bank account is pretty much stuck at 2k, i still have 7 chapters for my cpa exams, i still need to do wing kiong's volunteer project accounts and let hui poh sign it, got to reply emails from customers for protect-sg, got to think of how protect-sg's next phase of growth will be, got to think of the salary structure; the plans that i have chatted with niap, got to skype itay, got to buy new stocks as beverages are going low in the gym, got to think of how to let terrence rent the gym and what he will ask for, protect-sg's marketing plan and development, thinking of how to improve my management skills;time management skills; planning and proposal writing skills.
Its sooo much work and i get derailed all the time. That is my number one weakenss and it stings me all the time. I tend to procrastinate nowadays too, giving excuses that i am tired and there are just too much work.
But when i listened to niap's comments today, about the hardworking nature of zhen liang and zhen jiang. It inspired me somehow to BE THE SAME, if not, at least.
I think it is time i come out with a detailed to do list. And make sure i get it done. Small things adds up.
start using my notebook that i have dearly carried in my bag and ignored its presence somehow.
tomorrow will be so much more productive. Hardwork!
