If I Could Tell You Just One Thing (Book)

It has been a while since my last post (almost a month, to be exact). As we are drawing closer to the end of 2018 and saying HELLO to 2019, thought it would be apt for me to write something as a closure for 2018. 

December is a festive season and lull period (read holiday season) for most employees (unless you are in sales with year end target to meet), I've taken a short break to Melaka, Malaysia to meet some friends, enjoy the local food as well as catching a performance called "Encore Melaka" (visually stunning with marvellous stage performances, worth the ticket)

Also, recently I've been reading a number of ebooks, there is one book in particular, If I Could Tell You Just On Thing (by Richard Reed) which I would like to share more about here. Basically, it's a collection of interviews with famous and heavy weights personnel/celebrities like Tony Blair, Simon Cowell, Dame Judi Dench, Sir Richard Branson etc... (you got the point). The objective is for them to share one and only one quote/motto/principle that they think might improve/change the life of the readers for the better. 

Some of my personal favourites are :

"Look for the pluses in life. Being negative completely erodes everything. If something bad happens, I always say cancel and continue and get back on track" ~ Dame Judi Dench 
“Make always the best from what you have, no matter how little it is.” ~ Lily Ebert, Auschwitz survivor
"Just do one thing. And aim to become best in the world at it" ~ Jony Ive 
On the same note, if I were to be asked to give a response to "If I Could Tell You Just One Thing", my response will be:

"Always keep going and keep smiling!"

What's yours? 

As regards to my investment portfolio, I didn't have much action recently and probably I will write another post on this. On high level, it (2018) should be at a double-digit loss year for me. 

Other than the performance of my investment portfolio, I think my 2018 is doing pretty well and looking forward to 2019 for new challenges and experiences.
