Winning sure feels good. Whatever the wins. The 'good' encapsulates a myriad of positive emotions. They boost your feeling of well-being and raise your sense of self worth. Winning can be easy and hard. Winning can be a sure thing or be fraught with uncertainties. It depends on what you want to win and how frequent you want to win. And, worse of all going for the win can also make you a loser; like playing the lotteries and robbing.

There are fast wins and there are wins that will take a long time. And, the slow wins can be turned into fast wins. Simply, by breaking down the big win that takes time into small chunks that you can do at certain frequency. And, like happiness, winning cannot be achieved without the doing. Even if you believe that you can wish for a win, it will not happen unless you take actions that are required to achieve your goal in mind.The wish is to generate the positive emotions for you to take action.

Money, respect, position, likes, love and everything else you think you want, to win, are mirages. What you are craving for, in its pure form, is the confirmation that you are worthy to be a human. That you have a place among the fellow beings. That you are human. Many have described that as the craving for self -worth, meaning and purpose as the ultimate desire. I want to emphasize our altruistic nature. And, it's not just about giving money away. It's also about helping family, friends and strangers in the simplest of things such as a praise to generate a good feeling.

So, ultimately, we are chasing for a good feeling, a positive emotion, a sense of belonging. And you can get that right now. At this moment. And at any moment you want. I have a few suggestions in the graphic attached. I am feeling like a winner right now.You know what I just did.

In the clasp of the novel pandemic, it feels being engulfed in a mesh of sly and ruthlessness. Every day, real and fake news of the virus’ conquests toughen the strands of the mesh, making it less porous. Harder to breathe. Massive millions are literally struggling to get their lungs working. Nearly three hundred thousand have ceased to need lungs. Heartbreaking. Scary. Humbling. The challenge for the living are manifold. Health and wealth is now the correct order of concern. People used to put the ‘W’ before the ‘H’. That is, whatever left, that were not drained by this ‘evil disease,’ as China’s numero uno, Xi Jinping calls it. But it’s like a rolling deficit. The trail of destruction is still fluid. Depending on which of the two directions you are looking, the scenario is similar, although not equal. If you look East it is gloom. If you look West, it feels like doom. And no one seems to have the answer to the question, “When can we eliminate this unseen evil that is elim

Painting the Mona Lisa and Chomping the Big Mac; What's the Similarity?

  My take-away from “How to Get from Where You are to Where You Want to Be” by Jack Canfield.   Principle 8: Chunk It Down Zach Dyson on Unsplash The Mona Lisa. It’s a masterpiece. It is also the sum of strokes. From the master’s brush. It took persistent and passionate effort for Leonardo da Vinci to capture the goal he had in mind onto the  board the masterpiece was painted. Some say it took hundreds of sessions. Through scientific assessment, it was determined that 30 coats of paint, layered in a unique style was needed for the maestro to achieve that “feel and look.” Zooming in with state-of-the-art magnification tools, art researchers claim that da Vinci used hatching and cross hatching method. Drilling down to the finest details, it is said that the “smile of the ages” was constructed by the artist with 30-40 brush strokes of translucent paint per millimetre. Fine art. Whether you are painting the Mona Lisa or chomping the Big Mac, you are working towards a goal


"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. " -Confucius It's of little comfort thinking about the industrial quality sanitizer dispensers we installed at staircase landings and common areas, the SARs response plan and the wipe-down protocol I have left with the company I worked for (nuts!) 35 years. Back then, in 2003,we were already big on testing, screening, quarantine and contact tracing. And, we did a good job, keeping our factories open. "And, we did a good job, keeping our factories open." It's not so good out there now. We are all in this grim mush. The scarier prospect is that no one knows when it will all end. It's been a yo yo. We thought Singapore had it in their pockets. Then, their infections skyrocketed. From a model, it is now the worst in the region. South Korea had their highest daily spike and China just reported their first double figure in
