Year End – Rest or Pick up the Pace?

In general everyone looks forward to year end as it’s a time of celebration and for most people its the holiday season to go on holidays. I beg to differ. 

Everyday is a time for celebration if we achieve the desired results that we have set from the beginning. Everyday can be a holiday if we have achieved our set targets. 

The problem is that most people live to celebrate and go for holidays without realizing that most do not deserve it just yet. In life we do not work for work life balance. If you are always looking for work life balance, then you are really never going to be truly successful. In life we must just look forward to having an awesome life. I like to call it work life integration. If you are able to live life with meaning to deliver results, than you will not be looking for year end holidays and celebrations as everyday can be celebrated and can be a holiday.  

I strongly advice you to go all out and pick up the pace as we close of the year. You will realize that those that put in the extra effort when others are slowing down will gain and benefit for the beginning of the year. 

This is not the time to slow down. This is the time to step it up and close off with a big bang. Finish strong and an awesome year awaits us in 2017.

We all have dreams but in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort. If we have a positive attitude and constantly strive to give our best effort, eventually we will overcome our immediate problems and we will find that we are ready for greater challenges.
Thank you.

The ancient Roman dedicated the New Year's Day to Janus, the god of beginnings and endings. Interestingly, Janus is being described as having two faces, as he could look to the future and to the past. Let's be like Janus: learn from the past, prepare for the future.

"Everyday is a time for celebration if we achieve the desired results".

"Work Life Integration" I will always bear in mind of these words. I am grateful that I learned this at my age. If not I will be work for rest of my life and looking for the "balance" between work and life.

Work what you love in, Work what you good in, Work what you enjoy in.

Correct. In the year end, I should check in myself about all the results and failures that I encountered this year.Learn from all them. Then start planning ahead year 2017.

Everyday can be a holiday if we have achieved our set targets.
I will not slow down and put in the extra efforts to achieve the target.

Kelvin Thong Jian Hao said...

Yes Mr Ernie, agree with your work life balance!
Merge our "work" and "lifestyle" together! If you really love your job, there are no such
thing is called holidays, everyday is holiday πŸ˜‰

We are not working, we are ENJOYING!

Thank you Mr Ernie. Learn a new lesson today. Everyday can be celebrate if we desired result.


The best blue ocean strategy is when people are holiday but you are working. holiday is always the opportunity.

If you think you work hard you must work harder, however the meaning of work harder is not about how many sweat and tear you had put in , is about using the effective ways, do it and make things happen. result is what we gonna work for it. In stead of holiday with everyone, choose the day when people are in rest but you are working .

We can only "Do to create opportunity, Grab to create result , Result make life" but the most important must always start with integrity. It can make a difference and change everyone life.

You get what you give , you give what you get. Strong agree those who put extra effort will gain the most benefit compare to those who slowing down. As if we work at the right timing ,it will get the ultimate result.

I believe people are born to do something in life duration. That is why we need work on something to get the fundamental human needs like food, water, shelters and more.
Make your work and life integration, so you are keeping the functionally of being a human.

When you young, you LEARN; When you grow, you EARN!

This quote always remind me to work harder & do not let go any opportunities.
At my age, do not deserve any holidays! As what Mr. Ernie said, everyday is a time for celebration if achieved desired results.

I am glad to live & work in such AWESOME environment.
Remind yourself every time when you take leave for holiday or receive monthly rewards from the company, Ask yourself: Am I deserve this for this month? What I have done to help the organization?

Always ask yourself these questions and you will realized, are you really deserve it or not.
If you cannot even convince yourself to say YES, please buck up & work harder!

This apply to every individual and myself included.

Do not live for work & work for survive.
Do not put work as a need; Work is part of your life to make your life meaningful.

Understand the "Work Life Integration" and make your life wonderful.

Thanks for the sharing Mr. Ernie and I will buck up myself to achieve desired results!
