Singapore 2010

Time always passes very quickly, now we are on the 2nd day of the last month of 2009. In just over 20 days, we will be ushering in a brand new year, year 2010.

I do not know whether you are like me, every time when it comes to this time of the year, I will become sad at the passage of time. I will contemplate at the past events of the year, what have happended and it will always jolt me into reality how indeed very quickly time has passed. What seemed to be events that took place yesterday had already passed months ago and it seemed that amidst all the grandiose visions and missions we had chalked up for year 2009, some targets have to be shelved to achieve in yet another year either as a result of NATO (no, I am not talking about the world organization, I am talking about the acronym: No Action Talk Only) or due to circumstances.

At this time of the year, one would ask ourselves “What have I achieved over the past one year” and the result to many would be that some goals are not yet achieved or missed.

I have kept calendars and organizers after I started work to keep track of my professional career and personal life events. At times when I am free, I would always turn back the pages and looked back at the events which had taken place in my life.

As I looked back and retraced some of the moments in my life, I realized for sure that there were certain things in life that I should never do, certain things in life that I should do less and certain things in life that I should do more.

I can be said to be a man of contemplation. Contemplating on past incidents and events of my life as an average Singaporean living on this tiny little red dot. Contemplation does let the past hold hostage of man and act as a straitjacket for progress if one is to be overly contemplating, however some contemplation does benefits to one as one learns from the past mistakes one have made and move on.

It is now just 29 days to yet another new year. I am trying to achieve some more goals within my means before the year comes to a close so that I would have achieved a bit more in year 2009.
