Thought of the Day: Decision Making

Thought of the Day: Decision Making

"In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing."
- Theodore Roosevelt

There are times in our life that we have to make a decision. Here are some steps I hope that would help you in Decision Making process:

Step 1: Know you’re Choices – It is important to know the available choices for you to make a clear decision. This will help you recognize each choice and narrow down the problem.

Step 2: Study each Choice – It is important to gather information on each choice. Try to research on the internet, read some books, and ask some people that you think will give you some information.

Step 3: Who Benefits? – It is important to know if this choice benefits you or not. Who are the concerned? Is this a family decision or a company decision? Try to consult the concerns. This will allow the concerned party to give there insights that will help you in making the decision. But take note, don’t be influenced. You should be the one making decisions not them. Just take into consideration about there insights.

Step 5: Anticipate – Think about your next move. Like the game of chess you have to know what your next move is. What are the complications if you go for each choice?

Step 6: Analyze the complication – This will help you decide which alternative is better. Will it create more problems?

Step 7: Finalize your Decision – If you think you are ready to make a decision then go for it. If not, then go back to step 1.

There are so many decisions we have to make in this life. Decisions are the choices we have to made and the risks we take in our life. There is no perfect decision. Whether we make a right or wrong decision, what's important is that we learn from it and try correct them. After all we are the only one who can decide for ourselves, right?

I hope this Decision making steps help you in making one. Please feel free share your comments and suggestion.

Thought of the Day: Faith

Thought of the Day: Faith


Faith is defined by Wikipedia as the trust, hope and belief in the goodness, trustworthiness or reliability of a person, concept or entity. It can also refer to beliefs that are not based on proof (e.g. faith that a child will grow up to be a good person).

Well, just received and email from one of my office mates about this well I just feel like sharing it with you guys... Maybe you have read this one but you can still check it out.


An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to... his Class on the Problem Science has with GOD, the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New Christian Students to stand and here is the conversation goes...

Professor: You are a Christian, aren't you, son ?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you Believe in GOD ?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Professor: Is GOD Good ?
Student: Sure.
Professor: Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL ?
Student: Yes.
Professor: My Brother died of Cancer even though he Prayed to GOD to Heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
(Student was silent )
Professor: You can't answer, can you ? Let's start again, Young Fella.Is GOD Good?
Student: Yes.
Professor: Is Satan good ?
Student: No.
Professor: Where does Satan come from ?
Student: From . . . GOD . . .
Professor: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?
Student: Yes.
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn't it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
Student: Yes.
Professor: So who created evil ?
(Student did not answer)
Professor: Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who Created them ?
(Student had no answer)
Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe the World around you. Tell me, son . . . Have you ever Seen GOD?
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD?
Student: No , sir.
Professor: Have you ever Felt your GOD, Tasted your GOD, Smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor: Yet you still Believe in HIM?
Student: Yes.
Professor: According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor: Yes,Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Professor: Yes.
Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?
Professor: Yes.
Student: No, sir. There isn't.
(The Lecture Theater became very quiet with this turn of events )
Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat, Mega Heat, White Heat, a Little Heat or No Heat. But we don't have anything called Cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is No Heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as Cold.Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat. We cannot Measure Cold. Heat is Energy. Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.
(There was Pin-Drop Silence in the Lecture Theater )
Student: What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as Darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is Night if there isn't Darkness?
Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the Absence of Something, You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light . . . But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and its called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, Darkness isn't. If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn't you?
Professor: So what is the point you are making, Young Man ?
Student: Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD. You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can't even explain a Thought. It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing. Death is Not the Opposite of Life, it is just the Absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that they evolved from a Monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes, of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shook his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument was going )
Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and Cannot even prove that this Process is an On-Going Endeavor, Are you not teaching your Opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?
(The Class was in Uproar )
Student: Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the Professor's Brain?
(The Class broke out into Laughter )
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's Brain, Felt it, touched or Smelt it? . . . No one appears to have done so. So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that You have No Brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then Trust your Lectures, sir?
(The Room was Silent. The Professor stared at the Student, his face unfathomable)
Professor: I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student: That is it sir . . . Exactly !

The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH.
That is all that Keeps Things Alive and Moving. What can you say about this? What about your faith? Thank you for your time.

Thought of the day: Living Life to the Fullest

Thought of the day: Living Life to the Fullest

" Follow your heart Go with your dreams and go with your instincts, you have one life to live Live it :) that's my advice to give to you all today "

By: Anonymous

We are often bound by our fear to commit mistakes, that we have acquired during those difficult times so to cover that fear with carefully planning our moves, that sometimes we forget to follow our dreams. We often think first before doing something, well if you ask me that is the right thing to do.

Sometimes I wish I was a child again, a child that is curious and wants to explore things out. That is what our thought of the day wants to say... Follow your heart and go with your instincts... this way we will be able to live our life to the fullest. With no regrets. As the saying goes..."Yesterday is past, Tomorrow is the future and Today is a gift that is why it is called the PRESENT" ... Have a great day... keep on smiling... :D

Thought of the day: Everything has a Reason...

Thought of the day: Everything has a Reason...

"Everything happens for a reason! Remember that! God has a plan for you and me =) "

Yes... as what I always say "Shit happens, and it happens to all best of us... and it happens for a reason".

I did recall a story from one of our recollection way back in high school. It was a story about a young man traveling in the desert when he reach a town at sunset and no one would let him come in and he was forced to stay outside the town under the tree. And when he was on the tree trying to make fire since it is a cold night a lion came so he was forced to climb up the tree with just a lamp in his hand and since his way up there a wind blown up and killed the fire in his lamp so he have no choice but to sleep up on the tree with no light at all. Before he fall as sleep he was asking why is this shit happening to him? The next day he woke up and found out that a group of bandits came into town and took all the precious belongings of the people in the town. Imagine if someone let him come in he will also be one of the person rubbed by the bandits, and if he has not gone up to the tree and the wind did not kill the fire on his lamp then he will also be spotted by the bandits and lost anything he has.

This is where the thought of the day comes in... Well as for me... I am not thankful that sometimes something is not happening as we plan it be and no matter how good is the plan, along the way bad things happen or doesn't go our way, however I still keep my faith in Him that this things happens for a reason and he has a better plan for us. It is like a blessing in disguise...

So what is the point in planning if it will not happen anyway? Well, that question is for you to answer. It is alright to sometimes let fate control our path but God give us freewill so we can make choices and decision.

So use your freewill wisely and God will do the rest, just keep the faith... Have a great day...

Thought of the day: Happiness

Thought of the day: Happiness

How to Find Happiness?
We often ask our self about it. what really makes you happy? Is it hitting the bulls eye make you happy?

Happiness it is defined by Merriam - Webster Dictionary as a state of well-being and contentment. We usually laugh and cry sometimes when we are happy. We do all sorts of things just to be happy.

I remember a story I read in a newspaper clippings way back my elementary days. It is a story about a person that has a different way of seeing things. He is happy when he is hungry and he is sad when he is full. The article explained his different behavior. The reason why he is happy when he is hungry is because the next thing to that is he will be full and the reason why he is sad when he is full is because the next thing to that is he will be hungry. That made me think for a while and see the bottom line of it. Some people aim for something and thinks that it will make them happy. One example of this is when we set a goal for ourself, we often hit the goal and after that ask our self whats next?

As the years go by, we are we constantly hitting our goals. Then the question still pops up. "How to Find Happiness?". Let us go back to the definition of the word "Happiness" and I guess we can find the answer.

Yes! It is being contented on what we have now. Not looking at the past and worrying about the future. After all the best things in life are Free, right?
