Just realised that my past two posts are bitching and whining. hope I turn become some whiney person that I would hate myself for.

God, please help me be a stronger person.

Someone who have the courage to change things (if i could)

serenity to accept the things that I can’t

and strength and wisdom to know the difference!

Lessons LEarnt from the Life of Caleb June 1, 2010

Filed under: Christianity,help,lessons — eujzin @ 11:54 pm

I recently concluded a bible study on the life of Caleb.

Not much is known of him, he’s certainly not as frequently mention unlike the likes of Moses or even Joshua.

He was a peer of Joshua’s, a minor character amongst men but definitely big with God.

Let me give a summary on our bible study on Caleb…

  • He had a godly perspective
  • He was unpopular with man
  • But he looked beyond the bad things to see the good things
  • Caleb had ‘God-view’ (faith) not ‘man-view’ (fear)
  • Caleb looked with eyes of faith (“God CAN…”)  not with eyes of fear (“I cannot, we cannot…”)
  • Fear looks at ourselves (we get overwhelmed)
  • Faith looks at God (we overcome fear instead)

The question is, are we victims or victors of our circumstances? Do we trust God more or ourselves? Let us be a Caleb and put all our trust on the almighty God!

 

iLuv Quotes January 7, 2010

 And these are my fave atm:

  • Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
  • If you think things can’t get worse it’s probably only because you lack sufficient imagination.
  • A train station is where the train stops. A bus station is where the bus stops. On my desk, I have a work station…
  • When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep — not screaming, like the passengers in his car.
  • You can’t be late until you show up.
  • Knowledge is realizing that the street is one-way, wisdom is looking both directions anyway
  • Parents spend the first part of our lives teaching us to walk and talk, and the rest of it telling us to sit down and shut up.
 

My End-in-Mind for this new year January 3, 2010

Filed under: help,lessons,life,Personal — eujzin @ 2:22 am

They (actually it means that i dun have a credible source) say that most successful people have goals.

And writing it down makes it clearer.

I DO want to be successful and I do have a poor memory so I am gonna use my long-neglected blog to spell it out as a reminder to self and for my friends to see (so that they too can remind me!)

Before I do that, let’s see how well I did for 2009…

I told myself that I would…

  • Exercise more <-DONE!
  • Climb stairs <-DONE! (I even did the vertical marathon!)
  • Eat healthy<-ERM…debatable
  • Two fruits a day<-started well and then FAILED miserably!
  • Save coins <-DONE!
  • Check bill before paying <-ok lah…can be better!
  • Walk 10,000 steps <-can be better!
  • Learn how to dance <-DONE!(once again thanks to Yvonne and WinNie! and also my dance partners miss green and celeste)
  • Learn diving <-Thanks to my besties Liyan and Charlotte, and also to Red Scuba)
  • Make more friends <-hmm…not sure…
  • Play tennis at least once a month <-FAILED!
  • Sleep earlier <-FAILED!
  • No alcohol on work nights! <-Thanks to Cheryl dear
  • Sing more<-hmmm…
  • Read more <-can be much much better!

SO…looks like i did better than expected (bear in mind I only refer to this list maybe once or twice, the most THRICE)

So this year, I shall… (more…)

Lessons from Worship Svc…Count it ALL Joy… (Philippians 1) July 13, 2009

Filed under: Christianity,lessons — eujzin @ 12:15 am

Today’s msg was esp inspiring

The speaker, Dr Jason, reminded us of the life of apostle Paul. A man who suffered much yet remained joyful and made the best of what many of us would consider a really bad and despairing situation.

Instead of lamenting and stayed that way, Paul had the right perspective and would take advantage of the situation despite seemingly bad circumstances. Below are short notes I took during this morning’s service…

Lessons from Work June 26, 2009

Filed under: lessons,Work — eujzin @ 9:33 am

I really enjoy the culture here in my workplace.

I get inspired and truly believe that the philosophy is good for me as a person for character development and my work here in the hospital.

One BIG philosophy is the Toyota Way.

Give you some examples…

The right process will produce the right results

  1. Build a culture of stopping to fix problems, to get quality right from the first
  2. Standardized tasks are the foundation for continuous improvement and employee empowerment
  3. Use visual control so no problems are hidden

Continuously solving root problems drives organizational learning

  1. Go and see for yourself to thoroughly understand the situation (Genchi Genbutsu, 現地現物);
  2. Make decisions slowly by consensus, thoroughly considering all options (Nemawashi, 根回し); implement decisions rapidly;
  3. Become a learning organization through relentless reflection (Hansei, 反省) and continuous improvement (Kaizen, 改善).
