OHHHH I am so sorry but…
So I am queuing for the bus and this guy came over acting all suave and shiiit. But while he is leaning on the fence and doing all those like he is in a music video, he totally smeared his hand into some chili sauce lookalike paste on the parapet wall.
All these while I stared at his mistake and he just grinned wider.
Finally now he noticed the chili sauce and he hung his head low.
Since we took pretty long to go through the test, Sensei was going faster during the last part.
During my turn to read some lines (we are already running a late), Sensei stopped me and said, “Yushin san, did you notice that your pronounce is always off? AND!!! Have you been putting in EFFORT in correcting yourself?”
They say if others stop caring about you, it means they probably gave up on you.
Focus on the solution to a problem and not the problem itself. :D
Over the weekends, I learned an interesting principle called the “P/PC Balance.” P stands for what is Produced (I like to call it Product) and PC stands for Capacity to Produce (your assets/machines/human resource).
Using the Goose and Golden Egg analogy, the Golden Egg is the P and the Goose is the PC. Initially the farmer was very happy to find that his goose lays one golden egg daily. But soon the farmer got too anxious and killed the goose thinking that he can harvest more golden eggs at once.
He ended up with no eggs and a dead goose.
Stephen R. Covey wrote that to be effective, we need to find the P/PC balance.
In the above story, the over emphasise on P got the farmer to destroy his asset. To better increase his yield he could have fed this goose better or mate the bird hoping to producing other golded eggs laying ones. (—-> last line by me ^^;;; wait did I hear some of you guys eww at me??!)
Covey equally emphasised on the danger of putting too much concern on one’s PC; stating that that (yup, two “thats,” not a typo) results in lost of opportunities and etc.
Applying this to my life, I think I focus *a lot* on the P in human relationships (dinners, karaoke session, long heart-to-heart talk, and etc) and neglected my PC (people as they are). Often I don’t get to the root of what lay the foundation of good relationships, the common goals, common interesting and a bunch of tricky things.
Alas~! Even Covey said that finding the balance is the utmost difficult thing among all.
Just over the weekends a friend (jokingly) commented that “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” gave him a lot of stress. And the above summary of what the P/PC Balance is actually a “homework” from the book!!! D: I can’t believe that I willingly did a homework on my own accord!!!
And in case you are very, very curious of why I mosaic-ed a few lines, that was a short write up on Toyota and Honda cars because they say if I can’t get a Suzuki, there are still other cars. This ain’t an analogy about… you know, guys, but really, really about cars.
3rd (incomplete) sketch. Gonna use an ink pad as a medium. xD But first gonna keep my paws clean for nuggets.
Really excited about this piece coz it will feature the superheros of my life. Regrettable that I can’t put everyone in but I love all of you. ♥
And I need more art materials!!! D:
