The longest distance between knowing it and doing it.

We never lack knowledge and information because there are 800 million videos and 37 million channels on YouTube. I am very sure you can find any answer on YouTube except those illegal topics. Therefore, what is the distance between knowing something and doing it? The length of the distance is measured by the amount of willingness. In short, how badly you want it. The distance does not change according to the amount of desire, but in perspective, it does feel shorter. We might be knowing too much and that knowledge might stop us from doing it. Knowledge becomes a burden in this context. But without knowledge, we are flying blindly into the unknown. The solution is to learn from others' experiences. That is a much smarter way to learn and remember to do it.

Rich people act in spite of fear. Poor people let fear stop them

When I am travelling, I do carry a book with me all the time. I was flipping through some pages of Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker and I saw this statement. Action is a bridge between the inner world and the outer world. It is important to think, but, it is equally important to act. Be it right or not so the right move. Without action, there is no improvement. Do you agree with me?

Learning does not need to be in the classroom

Sometimes, it is not about the song, it is about the singer. Sometimes, it is not about the movie, it is about the actor. Most of the time, it is about ourselves. I hope life does not throw me too many lemons, although I can make lemon juice. But when it does happen, I can only make more lemon juice.  

I bought a car from MyTukar

It has been almost 10 years since I didn't own a car and recently due to work requirements, I need to get a car. It was supposed to be an easy task but due to last month's buying rush for cars before government impose SST again, all the new orders will have a waiting period of a minimum of 3 months to 6 months.  Therefore, I decided to buy a used car. Finally, I got the chance to experience it as a consumer of the latest so-called using technology to enhance buying used car experiences from start-up companies such as Carsome or MyTukar.   Both platforms have their own pros and cons. However, I am going to jump straight to the end result and share with you my last moment with MyTukar in Puchong Headquarters to collect my car. I believe all these companies did a great job providing fresh new experiences to consumers buying a used car just like buying a new car. At least, the place where you "shop" for a car is a really nice and bright environment. If you compare it to a
