the year is coming to an end. in less than a month's time, we are going to say bye-bye to 2011. and hello to 2012. about this time, if not earlier last year, i made a wishlist, on what i want. click here.
happy to say, ive achieved 3 out of 4 items on my wish list! yeayy!!
1, i havent got my iMac yet. geographically inconvenient for me to own one of such yet. perhaps postpone it to 2012? we'll see.. :D
2, for blackberry, refer to the post after that. i switched torchy to curve. just that i didnt get the red one. hehs.
well, i also said that i want to be a billionaire.. but no. thats not happening yet. or anytime soon, i think.
so, note to all: set a wishlist that is actually do-able. dont go on and set a target that's waaaaay out of ur capacity. well, people say, thats the whole point of dreaming and wishing. fair enuff if you ARE putting an effort into it. my advice, make a certain timeline for u achieve the major ones, cause that will inspire u more. but, simply by dreaming and wishing? it'll definitely lead you nowhere near WANTING TO ACCOMPLISH IT, cause you know you already have this mindset that its impossible. so end up, you didnt achieve anything. then u get frustrated. and u gave up. and made another impossible dream... and the cycle continues.
now, wont that just be silly? and a waste of time?
nigel green of Radio 4 (now known as Traxx FM) used to say,
"Shoot for the moon. Even if you missed, you'll land among the stars.."
you know what i say? i say, calculate then shoot. if you missed, calculate again. but if u did ur calculation correctly the first time, you'll get it straight and u won't miss it. wont that be nicer, confidence booster, and provides u more momentum to keep on dreaming and pursuing.. and actually ACHIEVE?
a malay saying goes: Ukur Baju di Badan Sendiri. so do that. im not asking u not to dream. but the joy of accomplishing something is way better than dreaming something that u are sure u wont be getting. worse, if ure not even going to work for it.
so 2012 is coming. make the list of things that you want to achieve/own/disown/remove/change. and by end of year, evaluate yourself. lets see if you did better than this year.
as for me, alhamdulillah. ive achieved almost all that ive targeted. now is time to set for new ones.
im a cynic. i know. but all im trying to say is, keep dreaming - pursue - and achieve!
