Looking around me over the past year, there is tons to be grateful for:
– A beautiful, supportive, caring and loving wife who is always standing by me, despite my numerous flaws
– A wonderful, blessed baby girl whose arrival has totally expanded my perspective on life. I now fully understand how much parents have sacrificed for us….very humbling
– Working together with so many passionate people; it is such a joy to work when the company around you is inspiring
– Travelling around the world and broadening my horizons; there is tons to learn in the days ahead
A poignant reminder of how much more remains to be done in my beloved Singapore (and everywhere else in the world) struck home again when I saw a limping old man (at least 70) yesterday pushing a huge cart full of cardboard boxes neatly flattened and stacked up on this cart, walking along the main road.
As an individual with only 24 hours a day already spread out thinly multi-tasking on both personal and company responsibilities, I am completely helpless. But as part of a collective/community, the sum total is surely greater than the parts. If done appropriately, many lives could be changed positively for the better
Give me time to chew on this
