Please READ

When I was growing up my mother had her way of making me do or look for things. When I ask here where something is, she would tell me to look for it. After looking for 1 minute, I'd go back to her and ask her where it is, she would say, "Use your eyes, not your mouth for look." She did it a few times with me and I learned my lesson.

This has been my belief. I would try to figure out things first before asking for help. If I feel I have been given the tools and the skills and the resources, why not look for the solution to the problem, right?

Of course, it it's something I really don't know, I ask for help.

I noticed a lot of people who don't seem to know how to follow instructions or don't know how to read. I've posted a few want ads online and there's always someone who will ask me what to do when the instructions are shown clearly in my ads.


We are looking for workers, blah, blah, blah.
Requirements are la d ida...
If interested, send me a message through my Skype ID [[ my ID]] or send me an e-mail [[ my email address]].

I would get a comment like this:

Hi I'm interested. I have worked as blah blah and I have la di da. My Skype ID is [[something]]. 

Come on! Didn't I give my contact info? Do you expect me to contact you when there are others who have already submitted their requirements?

And there are those who, for some reason, need to be told what to do. I posted the link to my blog where the ad was posted. This is on Facebook. The content of the post didn't show on Facebook, just the link to the blog plus the heading Someone is looking for workers...

Someone posted a comment, "How do I apply?" I think it's pretty obvious that the natural thing to do is to follow the link.


Reminds me of this cartoon from Johnny Wander:

All Good Things Come To Those Who Hustle!

When I was young, I was petiks (slacker) and I procrastinated a lot. I could afford to slack off then since I was young.

Now that I'm old-er, I don't slack off as much anymore. I take advantage of opportunities that come my way, at least those that I think that are worth taking advantage (of). I always think that if I let an opportunity pass, it may never come my way again. The only time I let things pass is when I am sick or not feeling well or if I think it won't be good for me. Sometimes, even when I'm sick, I drag myself out of bed to go to work. Sayang eh. If I miss 1 day of work, I would lose at least a thousand bucks.

I can't wait for people to make things happen for me. If they don't want to make money from my plans, I'll make my plans happen, with or without them.

I can't wait for people to take advantage of the help I offer them. Some people are just too slooooww ww ww to take action even if the assistance being offered to them is free. Some people are just to slow to take action, even if it means their business would prosper with the free help.

Why do I act like I'm in a hurry? I'm 44, I'm not getting any younger. I need to make dreams come true. I have goals I want to achieve and waiting for nothing will not help me at all.

I found this online which I find interesting. These are a part of 7 laws but I'm picking the best:

  • Good things are waiting for you to come to them.
  • Good things come to those who hustle while they wait.
  • Good things come to those who go get them.
  • Good things come to those who expect good things.

Those are the 4 items that I strongly believe in.

Time waits for no-one...

Time is gold...

Opportunity is perishable...

Good things come to those who hustle. Never stop the hustle. Success comes to those who seize it.
