USD 27

leave a comment »

Adam likes reading. He likes business books and others that are related to business, such as marketing, finance, entrepreneurship and so on. He also likes books that are discussing about making money by internet.

Every month, he will save 10% from his pocket-money. He will put this 10% in his savings. After several months, he will take some money to buy books.

One day, he took RM100 (Ringgit Malaysia Hundred) and went to a book store. He wanted to buy the books he liked most.  After a while, he found 4 books and bought all. The cost of all these 4 books is RM 95. RM 95 is similar to about USD 27. Sound like not too much. But in Malaysia, with RM 95 you can eat for 3 days and in a day you can eat 5 times satisfactorily. So, this amount is quite much.

Adam sacrificed his money and bought the books. He did not feel sad about losing his money but he felt happy. He paid the money to the cashier, got the books, smiled and went back home.

Was Adam crazy? No. He was not a crazy man. He was a look ahead man. This was because books are like an asset. So if he bought a book that was like he bought an asset. After several years, he could sell the asset and make a profit. Like in reading books, after several years he could had more knowledge because of reading.

Lastly, do not fear to spend your money to buy books. Make sure the books are very good type and make sure you read it after buying. Buying books without reading is like buying the asset and let it down.

T before D

leave a comment »

Is it correct if I say T before D? Exactly the answer is no. But if I say: Think before Do, it can be a correct sentence, isn’t it?

Adam is a student in a small college near his hometown. He will complete his study for a Degree. He wants to continue his study for a Master. He wants to go to the famous university in his country.

Without planning and reading the information in the university’s website, he logged on to the website to apply for a Master study by following what his friend told him to do. Suddenly he realized his action was wrong as he did not completed his Degree yet. Without any reasons, he blamed himself.

Why Adam’s action was wrong?

  • Adam does not complete his study for a Degree yet.
  • Adam must complete his study for a Degree first. This is because a Degree qualification is needed to continue for a Master.
  • Adam must think first before doing something.
  • Adam must relax in doing something. This is because to avoid him from any problems.

Lastly, think first before doing something and you will feel relax and happy. Furthermore, you can also avoid yourself from any problems. So, Think before Do.

Thank you for your visit. 🙂

Please come again. See you next time.
