It’s been about 4 months since my last posting. Looking back, what have i done in the 4 months?
1. Took my final exams and graduated from the MSc Industrial and Systems Engineering program from NUS
2. Planned and married the love of my life.
3. Had a wonderful honeymoon on the island of Hawaii
4. Found a new career and that is to teach and educate the young
What more could i ask for? Yes…much more…if you set your mind to achieve them.
Had a great lunch with an old friend yesterday and we came to the discussion about whether my Masters of Science had value in my job hunt. My immediate response to him was that taking the course on a part time basis fundamentally changed the way i viewed myself. The Masters still helped in the job search but nothing as big as the way the course opened my mind to the bigger world out there and also understanding my personal limits (while i continue to break through them). It was very much a “A-Ha!” moment when i realised that i could juggle work, family, friends and studies all in one if i wanted to. If you know what you want to accomplish, you would automatically optimise your time, passion an skills to achieve the goals you set for yourself.
Nothing is impossible. “You can achieve anything you set your mind to”. It may be an over simplification but it’s a start. If you decide to use the sentence as your guiding principle, i am sure you will also come to find your own balance towards achieving the meaning of the sentence.
