Life in Russia...

I don't know what to write here...
I feel that i am not a lucky guy...
Every times, i will be handle the project which nobody dare to go.
e.g. Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Ukraine and Russia.

I can said normally the customer is not really take care of me.
Except Ivory Coast.
This trip is the worst for me.
I am alone and ...

I still remember that when my junior stay at offshore with me.
We are tired after 2 weeks.
I used to motivate him - Calculate 1 day more than you can get 1 more day allowance.
I try to motivate myself using this method at here.

It doesn't work to me anymore.
How to prolong my time i spend here.
1 day just like 1 year for me.
Look i am very "Cham" here right?
From the work, i am NOT tension at all.
I'm more suffering from the customer side.
As you know, they not really take care of me.
They not like Asian people.

Why i say "Bruce Lee"?
1 Asian Vs with 100+ people here.
Don't think i am easy to be bully!
Now, the GM know about the news!!!

Actually, the main objective of the post is ...
I found a motivation method!
How to motivate yourself and pass the time for whole day?

Very Simple!

I use it more around 6  days!
I am getting better now.

Write some encourage message in your "To-do-list".
So, every 2 hours i will get the message... and Motivate me to keep on.

Hope i can go further more :P

Don't think too much. Relax yourself. Don't let your own thoughts ruin your day. Good or bad, you're strong and healthy, you should be happy and enjoy every moments. Ganbate!

That's your blog name "LIFE 2009" and in LIFE sure to have ups and downs and like it or not we have to accept and be strong over it.

You've got a brilliant way to self-motivate yourself and that's a great sharing and also the money which you shared with your colleague of one more day one more extra allowance to keep. Can understand how you feel but to reverse the thinking if the job is so easy to handle Ah Tu, Ah Kau or Ah Meow would have done it and you have nothing left to do but to only check the water pipe pressure in your office then lagi cham. Think of the bright side bro.

Lastly that's what I heard about this and google it just specially for you..人無千日好,花無百日紅 rén wú qiān rì hǎo, huā wú bǎi rì hóng..~;).

Like Ah Niu always sing that song about happy will pass one day, not happy also past one day. End of the day happy or unhappy is all in your hands. Know its easier said than done but you never know until you try. Right? Cheers bro..

Gratitude said...

At the end of the day, it's all about earning a living right? have you considered changing jobs, or the money is too good to refuse?
