I finally got to force myself to do something about this domain name which I purchased sometime ago. Well, setting up a Linux server and spending some time configuring Apache is a breeze especially with most of the new Linux distributions now coming with a bunch of applications usually pre-configured. With the help of "linuxconf", on the latest Mandrake Linux 7.2, it's neat, tidy, simple, fast and easy! Soon, gone will be the days of command-line editing on term-consoles. Those poor geeks will start hating the GUIs users!

So now that this site is up, I hope to achieve more than just this simple dead site by Q1 next year as I will be on vacation soon to rest my mind and refocus my mind on myself, my surroundings, my family, relatives and all my friends whom I have lost contact with for the past 14 months that I have been working for my current employer,

Many people asked me, "Why have you been so busy at work?" and my only answer is, this company which I joined is young and it is like a newborn baby that needs feeding, grooming and a lot of nurturing and I am proud to admit that I was head-hunted for this position to head the Information Systems Dept.

While I am saying all this, my bosses are already working on with their new ideas, penetrating new markets and growing the company in Asia to new heights. Now that we have operations in 5 countries in Asia-Pacific and listed on the mainboard of Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX), we have to work even harder to prove to the weak market sentiments and prognosis of the analysts which is going against dotcoms and technology companies.

Well, that's the pace when you work in a You need to capitalize what you have now while you are hot and capture the market while you are still sizzling because that is the only way to stay on-top of what you have built.

That's all for now and I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and a Happy New Year. Let's all hope year 2001 will be a better year for dot.coms before it turns out to be the dot.bombs for technology companies.

Making Optimum Choices in Life

I was asked by one of my business mentees I am currently mentoring, "How do I make the most optimum choice in life when I am bombarded with possibilities all the time?"Life is full of choices. This choice, that choice, both choice or none of the above. THAT's a whopping 4 choice!  Choice can open the door to a whole new possibilities, not only at cross-roads on our path in life, but in each moment, giving us access to the bountiful of possibilities with which we can paint our world any way we want it to be.  We can choose a new action, thought or feeling at any time, and create an entirely new reality as a result.  Every choice has an impact or consequence, to a greater or lesser extent, each one like a pebble dropped in a pond; the ripples, the ramifications, spreading out into your future and other areas of your life. Even one small choice made today that shifts your life by a minor degree can take you to an entirely different future than the one you are heading, opening …

The 4 Essentials of Effective Leadership

I read this article written Mark Raciappa, ActionCOACH and I totally agree. His communication is clear, concise and it resonated with me. Mark says;
I remember a bumper sticker: “Either Lead or Follow—But Get Out of the Way!”
Interestingly, in my company, I say something similar and it goes like this "If you can lead, lead. If you can't lead, follow. If you cannot lead or follow, get out of my way!
Mark continued to write that, when our role calls for the former, here are 4 important things to keep in mind:1. Great leaders communicate. Realizing that good communication is a 2-way street, we must be responsible for our part. That being said, true communication is the response that you get. Whatever form you choose (verbal, mail, e-mail, etc), if you don’t get the outcome you seek (from a “willing” recipient), the responsibility lies with the sender. Great leaders confirm, gain commitment, and solicit feedback to improve the process.2. Great leaders make decisions. Far too ofte…
