Earthquake Day

I felt bemused experiencing that "earthquake" or rather tremors in the office today.

I thought that someone was pushing the cubicle partitions until I realized that everyone else experienced the same thing.

No big deal for me. Just lasted like 3-5 seconds for me.

All the way from Sumatra, a 6.3 earthquake in Padang affected us.

Things to Learn

I think one of the things I and everyone should keep on learn is decision making.

Decision making is one of the most important things that affect our lives, yet we aren't taught this vital subject in school.

It's quite a fascinating subject, really. A quick search on google websites describes the biases that people are prone to, the psychology of the decision making process, etc.

Our decisions affect our lives and shape our future. Shouldn't we therefore take the the effort to make better decisions?

Form versus Function

You can buy a gym membership but you can't buy fitness.

You can buy slimming tea and drinks, but you can't buy discipline.

You can buy gifts but you can't buy love.

You can hire consultants but you can't buy a decision.

You can buy clothes but you can't buy poise and confidence.

You can buy books but you can't buy wisdom.
