Comfort ZONE = Sucide ZONE

I feel that many one of us are afraid of changing.

What I meant here is actually we deny the fact that everything is changing and they are changing at a very fast pace.

There is nothing permanent except change.
The only constant is change.
Change is the only constant.
Change alone is unchanging.
Yet the fact is there but we still denying it. Time to wake up everyone!

First thing since the first day you were born, you are living in a comfort zone. Thing remain not much changes until you don’t want to get out of it.

Why did I say so?
Do you dare to go for a backpack trip alone in Cambodia?
Do you want to go for work at some foreign country for >6months?
Do you dare go study oversea while you are financial inapplicable?

I am sure most of you will answer no because you will give yourself whole lot of reason. Or let say you are trying to be rational?

Some people are afraid of commitment because they feel that it stop them from doing their thing, feeling burden or being tie to something.
But they are just scare to craw out from their comfort zone because people always have this mind set “if can avoid, AVOID. If can hide, HIDE”

This kind of mind set will stop us from getting “far” in our life.

One of my lecture keep on emphasizing this word “Comfort zone” in the class.
He told us one of his theories.

“When you go to work, make sure you change your job every 3 years.”

This phrase shock most of the students and doesn’t sound convincing at all. But he further explains. He said if you would ever work in a same company for >10 years, your skill will be only in use with that company. If one day you were fired then you will have no place to go.

When you are 20+ 30+ you are afford to lose, to fail. But when you are 40+ you can’t really affort to lose a job. In order to be well prepared, we must always on a look out and stay away from our own comfort zone.

Remember when you are 30s you can’t get back to do thing that you can afford to do during your 20s. And don’t try to stay in your own comfort zone too long. Else you will be doomed.

Is just my oppinion

ABC

First time really do some cooking at Singapore! Thanks to my 2 new house mate.

Yesterday afternoon Shin Hun, Wan Ching and I went to courts to get a rice cooker... it cost us $50 but tell you all... it really worth the price!

Since we all just reach here, not yet train up our cooking skill so we decide to just prepare a ABC Soup... woo... is really fun!

Early in the morning we all get up early... First time in my SG life, that I wake up on my will at 6.30a.m. because I sleep really early the day before.

So... is still early, so I watched Sweeney Todd early in the morning...
That movie was great! I like the Music and the Killing too!! Haha... Evil Grin!

Around 9, everyone is ready for a trip to the market, we all walk there. As you know, the best transportation in SG is our both legs!

Fair Price here we come! We went there to get rice, salt, pepper, tomato, potato, onion, disc wash detergent, and a few things more, it all cost only $13. And is enough for us to eat 2 meal!

Follow on... is Market time... went there to get fish ball, bean curd, and koayteow! Then we head home....

Very tired, keep on walk and walk... next time should get a bicycle... (in dream)

Then... of course back home start cooking already!

Tok* tok* tok* cut vegetable is not done by me... I just have to boil the water... Haha...
ok skip the cooking part... because I am not really in it...

Finally the soup is ready to serve... Wow.. taste like my mom's soup...


and We 3 finish it... *huuuu... so damn full!
