Adam Khoo

  • Dare to dream and find out how to get there
  • For goal setting, focus not on the amount of money you wish to have, but on creating value in doing what you love to do
  • No idea is original. Everything is just an add-on to something else
  • Knowing how to sell oneself is important
  • Good marketing makes bad products die faster
  • Making money is just one of many measures of success

Ivan Lee

  • Never cast any philosophy in stone
  • Ego and contentment will destroy you
  • Business is all about being a leader and it is not a democracy
  • Be pragmatic to the core
  • Pay well, and give job satisfaction (Respect, Empowerment)
  • Marketing research and R&D are important. Note: R&D = Rob & Duplicate
  • Get people to like you and feel comfortable with you
  • Fail in order to succeed, to gain more confidence

Angel and Mortal Encounter

Today is a great day.

After SSA2214 lecture, I bumped onto my Angel! Well, it was her who saw me first though. We played the Angel-and-Mortal game when we were in TJC. It had since been 4 years since my last encounter with her.

We went for a drink at the Arts Canteen. Seems like there is a lot to catch up...

The Angel-and-Mortal Game:
One group of angels would write letters to their mortals, so only the angels would know the the identity of the mortals.
