Find a cause that you are willing to die for!

As we search for deeper meaning of life, we come to a time when we ask ourselves “what is our purpose here on earth?”.

Did you find your purpose already? Are you willing to die for that cause?

If so, please share. 🙂

Usap tayo. 🙂

Be grateful!

You never know how far it will take you by simply being grateful. There is always a lot of opportunities around us to be grateful for.

Thank the person who let you sit on the bus.

Thank the person who held the elevator button in order to let you enter.

Thank the person who assisted you in the cashier area.

Thank the guard who helped you arranged your goodies at the store.

Be blessed everyone!

Business 101: A reading list for lifelong learners

Ready to level up your working knowledge of business? Here’s what to read now — and next. 

Business 101, with Nilofer Merchant

First, read these 2 foundational books…
1. The Change Masters
Rosabeth Moss Kanter
Free Press, 1985

“A foundational book for your collection. When a colleague recently switched careers, I lent her this incredibly dog-eared book from college days. Rosabeth Moss Kanter helped coined the idea and term ’empowerment’ in the 1970s, a sure sign she was ahead of her time. Even though The Change Masters was published forty years ago, it’s relevant. Why? Because all progress is made by those that are change masters. Become one.”

2. Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing without Organizations
Clay Shirky
Penguin, 2008

“A few years back, I took out Clay Shirky’s book and found it filled with scribbles. While it’s almost passé now to talk of how Obama organized a…

5 facts you should know about women who shaped modern physics

ideas.ted.com

Featured image: Austrian physicist Lise Meitner, who first developed the theory explaining the process of nuclear fission.

Theoretical physicist (and TED Fellow) Shohini Ghose has two great passions: physics, and advocating for gender equity in the sciences. “There are still relatively few women in physics – and the higher up the ladder in academia or industry you go, the fewer women you find,” says Ghose. “Yet the laws of physics themselves are gender neutral, and the beauty of the universe is equally accessible to everyone. So why so few women, and how can we change that?”

Recently, we asked Ghose to share five of her favorite facts about women and their contribution to physics. Here they are:

1. Marie Curie is the only person to have won Nobel Prizes in two different scientific disciplines.
First, Marie Curie won in 1903 for her studies of radioactivity. She shared the prize with her husband Pierre…

How to Be a Better Writer: 6 Tips From Harvard’s Steven Pinker

TIME

U want 2B a better writer?

Good writing is often looked at as an art and, frankly, that can be intimidating. No need to worry. There are rules — even science — behind writing well.

Our brain works a particular way; so what rules do we need to know to write the way the brain best understands?

To find out the answer I gave Steven Pinker a call.

Steven is a cognitive scientist and linguist at Harvard. He’s also on the Usage Panel of the American Heritage Dictionary.

Steven was recently ranked as one of the top 100 most eminent psychologists of the modern era.

His latest book is The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Writing in the 21st Century. And it’s great.

Below you’ll learn:

  1. The two key elements that will improve your writing.
  2. The biggest mistake we all make — and…

Hellokeit Yee!!! #friends !

Trusting His Blueprint

With a cup of tea beside me, I try to reflect on how the series of events in my life are interconnected. There seems to have some unnecessary circumstances in what I wanted to be. Shall I consider them as parts of the process?

Yes, I received a comforting meal from a friend when I wasn’t able to withdraw money from the bank because the ATM didn’t dispense anything the other day. Yes, I received a hug, word of encouragement and insights that day, too. Yes, I had a heated argument with my siblings, delayed projects, misunderstanding with co-employees, unappreciative friends and all that. But what?

I believe these are no chance encounters—only God’s arranged master plan for me. Will I consider ordinary encounters that appear as coincidences as God’s loving hands?

Surely yes. I may not be able to see what’s God overall plan for my life but I believe that each specific directive and series of vignettes which purposes may be hidden for the moment are all parts of the mystery.

In time, my life will be revealed and understood. I hope.

That one day, I will be able to look back and see how my experiences fit together like a perfectly crafted puzzle. I have yet to learn obedience and willingness to agree to His master plan in a mysterious ways He sets it in motion. I have yet to learn to trust completely and not to feel anxious and believe God’s promises and tuck them in my heart. Yes, I believe God’s plan for me are great.

Yes, there are times that I’ve been pondering about my future plans and feel perplexed. This lead me think about Moses, who went from the pond, to the palace, to the pasture, to the pinnacle, to the view of promised land before entering the Promised Land.

Yes, there is a time for everything and a season for every activity in heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

And God who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6)

Lastly, I believe that in all things, God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28).
