Recently, I was considering a career move. Due to a recommendation by a friend, I explored a partnership in a potential venture.
The discussion didn't end well. I gave the matter some.thoughts and decided to talk to more people.
After that, I realised I might be jumping from one hot pan to another.
Made me feel better although nothing much has changed. I do not think I will continue that venture.
Another blogger made me realise there is a big difference being wanting to start your own business and wanting to be self-employed.
So... I decided to be manwhore one more time. Since now I have a different boss and going to have a different job scope next year.
I given up my chance for any future promotion or pay increment with this lateral movement to another job scope. But I am very happy.
Today, I finished my last appraisal work. No more. While I know there will be plenty of challenges in the future, I know I will be more at peace. Better to do what I am good at then trying to convince myself that I can do something I no longer believed in well
I really like the 3 questions Jack Ma asked himself. What do I have? What can I do to what I have? What I am willing to give up for what I have.
I know what I am not willing to give up just yet. So is time to shut down and be at peace.
I might still keep that option open and look it for various angles.
Here is a picture I find really interesting.
The grass is always greener at the other side; there is always a more shitty job.
It's been 3 years since I start asking my P6 pupils to make name cards for themselves. I told them to think of what they like, and that the job they want need not exists in reality. I quoted past years examples like Pokémon Trainer and Hacker.
This year is really fun. The session is a good opportunity for me to talk to them about their interests.
This year, the choices are more varied and interesting. I have
1) Kept Man
2) Housewife ( Although I think they are referring to Tai Tai)
3) Gym manager
5) Female pilot
7) Game Streamer ( Something I learned)
9) Ah long (She keep saying "legit one, legit one")
It is really fun talking to them. One very guiet girl designed a name card of a singer with a studio company. She looked up at me and suddenly start rapping, saying she wanted to be a star and that she think she can do it. I replied with a rap (cannot shu Sia)
The assassin wannebe name card is the design of death note.
I tease many of the pupils as they talk about their "dream"
Hope they remind innocent and dreamy. Is a hallmark of youth.
I have always had that elusive 2 baggers. It's like a badge of shame. Never holding something long enough due to lack of conviction or greed for a quick profits.
I am always jealous of CW 10 baggers hahahha, although not in a malicious way.
Finally, I got 1 2-baggers.
MIT!!! Yeah! I brought it in 2014 Dec at 1.45, including dividends receive over the last 4 years, and capital gains, I would make over 100% if I sold it now.
If u looking for reasons for this wonderful win, I will say luck.
Hahahah. Finally got lucky.
I already said this is a irritation post. Size too. It's not a big amount of my portfolio, so I just let it be and didn't have the intention to sell. Of course, my original thesis did not change and I did not really have to do hard review. I did want to add at 1.7 but it didn't reach the price after I did a review 2 years ago.
