How to Enjoy the Second Half of Your Life Game- Sunset is the beginning of sunrise

The most common myth I've come across in life coaching is that: "it's too late to change my life". Well, this is almost always not true! I have seen some clients and surely, potential clients who 'devote' their lives to someone else. It's often their children, their husband/wife, caring their parents, or simply their jobs [...]

Leadership, Part III- You are born to be a leader

I used to believe that some people are born to be leaders and most people are meant to be followers. At least, that's what I have seen around me and perhaps, in the society as a whole. However, there are two issues with this view. First, it's true that most people are 'followers'. Humans are [...]

To Walk A Path That Cannot Be Tread Easily: Part 2

The past two months have flown by so quickly that it’s hard to make any sense of it. It never used to be like this. Time would always come to a standstill as a child, playing with the neighbour’s children or waiting for the school bell to ring. Cherished memories captured in brief moments of [...]

Many things will get done when you feel a strong sense of urgency. Have you ever done your homework the night before its due date? (I have!)

Personal Finance and Be Money smart! – Part VII: Enjoy spending money, but mindfully

The way you spend money is a habit that you've cultivated for years. This is best seen from teaching your own children how and why to spend money.

If I ask you: "what business is McDonald's in?" Then, I guess most people will say that McDonald's is in the fast food business; they sell burgers. Well, this is not entirely true.
