Decision making, should we follow?

Who should we blame?

We believe that we want someone to guide us when we are facing some difficulties in a decision.

When the guidance is wrong, we blame on the person who gave the suggestion, not ourselves who chose on our own.


It can be as simple as what should we eat later on to the most sensitive area – investing.

Who do not love suggestion?

Ultimately, we all love people who give a suggestion because sometimes we are just being lazy to think hard. And it is also easy to point a finger at someone else if anything goes south.

Easy does that, huh?


What happened if it involves with money?

If you have no idea which stock or forex pairs to buy, just shun away. Do not learn to take other people suggestions and follow suit. Because everyone have their own method, and it may not cater to everyone hunger.

Instead of seeing profits, you are losing money because you chose to follow instead of doing your own analysis. But you blame yourself for following when you know you are on the right track!

That means you are lacking confident.


Decision making is important

Do not let other people distract you unless you want to follow it.

If you want to succeed in life and your business, learn to take decision instead of taking other people advises and follow blindly.

The keyword is followed blindly because there are always good advises you can listen. But make sure you do your homework before deciding.


When we take the suggestion and decided to proceed with it, we must learn to accept the wrong decision even though you analysed correctly. There is no perfect in this world, so we must learn to accept some pain in life.

Life is a piece of chocolate, as the famous quote had said.

But there are always sweet and the bitter type, if you can start to love the latter, it means you had surpassed that level of pain. “I will make back later.”

One must not learn to dwell over the past. We should look forward to the greater good in future.


Faith lies on our hand, choose to listen and analyse or choose to follow blindly which is the easier way out.

We all have a choice to make but with a wise decision.


Failure is a lesson to learn

All of us want to be successful and love the easy way out. The simpler, the better.

If you are a boss of your own, take as many pointers as possible. Because there are some pointers that may not suit you well.

But no one can guarantee that it will be successful, it is the risk you have to take.

Sometimes, you just have to fail to understand structure because experience counts,


If anyone can survive without a failure, it means that the person is either being spoon fed or just blindly follow orders. He or she will never understand the meaning of failure to gain experience.

Failure can be big or small, now or later.

Even Warren Buffet have his failure when acquiring companies that he is eyeing on. All of us are not the god or fortune teller.

Whether you are self-employed, a blogger, a DJ, musician, trader, designer, singer etc, do not cry over spilt milk when you are having crossroad in life.

Rather than self pity yourselves, failure will make you even stronger.



The hunger that may kills

Hungry over food

Who can resist the feast of food on the table?

Ever wonder that when you are extremely hungry and hoping that you can finish all the items as soon as possible?

But there is something that we have forgotten always – limitation.


While we are very hungry and wanted to finish up the food, we must know that our stomach has a limitation of how much it can contain. It may lead to overeating if we keep on eating non-stop.

What will be the aftermath for that cause?

Indigestion, vomiting, headache and giddy etc… Especially for those who are under medication, you have an answer that to yourself. It is not going to be nice.


Apart from consuming of food, there are so many examples about (over) hunger may kill without limitation.



Hungry over design

Most of the things had gone simple and easy to understand. Clean and slick is something everyone is looking for, especially on designing of the poster, interior house, photography etc.

In the past, everyone falls in love with Adobe so much that they put in a lot of effort putting in so many elements that create the extreme design concept.

After a period of times, designer and creative director intend to make it simple as much as possible.  It is let people focus on what they want to tell, share and show.

It is better to be straight to the point than making guesses.

So, what does greed get into it?

For example, a poster that a designer is designing. The output looks terrific because it is so clean and everyone can understand very well. But he felt hungry and wanted to add on more so that he feel that the emptiness will not be there.

In the end, face palmed himself when the colleague started making so many negative comments that he was so surprised of.

Did he do a bad job or did he put in too many elements that ‘destroyed’ the initial look?



Hungry over investing

Design can revert to the original creation, but there is some stuff that it cannot.

That will be investing.

Anyone can invest, but which one are you comfortable with? Business or stock/ forex market?

You get excited because of your first investment and it is making good money.

You started to branch out as many investments as possible because you never thought that it is so easy to make money this way and you decided to put in a lot of money.

Without prior knowledge of any product, you bang for luck to come.


Your hunger has no limitation. It is telling that you are always hungry and wanted it more. Of course, the more the merrier, the higher the risk it will be.

Not every day is Sunday, there will be a thunderstorm and it will happen.

When you look at the business account or portfolio, you started to worry. Why am I not earning profits and instead getting so much loss and it is not very healthy at all!

We must understand one thing – learn when to stop and withdraw necessary. Or rather, take your losses to prevent it from falling it down further. It is very unhealthy for your account. No one like losing, but sometimes, we just have to accept it.


Move up again another time. Don’t brood over the losses.


Better to feel the pain now than getting your wound deeper.



While we feel hungry, we must know our own limitation as not to go overboard. We will be greedy instead of being hungry.

Late founder Steve Job once said, stay hungry stay foolish.

He wanted to make his foolish thought to make it happen by staying hungry. He once turned greed and revert again. This is how he is so successful.
