Though I'm an avid promoter of academia and higher education, I would have to admit that the best lessons in life are not learned in school.
A few things that I picked up today:
– Being a family is more than sharing the same DNA with each other. It’s about working in a team.
– Friendships and relationships aren’t necessarily very different. Both require the same amount of effort to keep maintained… and both ought to be equally treated in terms of importance.
– It just takes one special someone to make you laugh and it’ll do a whole world of difference to your day.
– Saying “thank you” can sometimes go a long way without realizing it.
– Even though the breakthrough of mobile phones and the Internet has got to be the best thing since the invention of Tim Tams, I’ve got to admit that it has ruined quite a few things for us… like uninterrupted conversations, luxurious lounging times, etc. Instead of making our lives easier and things more convenient, it just gives us more excuse to work a little bit more because technology would deliver us more vacancies in our time.
– Organic and non-organic lettuce actually taste the same.
– You never know when you’ll get your second wind so hold that coffee.
– Courage and confidence are always good to possess but too much of those would just lead you to trouble. Moderation is always key. Never swallow more than what you can chew (regardless of precedent).
– It’s best to usually work in worst case scenarios. Although hoping for the best doesn't hurt.
– Always under-promise and over-deliver.
It was indeed a long Sunday today…
