Focusing on Problems & Focusing on Solutions

Case 1:
When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that the pens wouldn't work at zero gravity (ink won't flow down to the writing surface). To solve this problem, it took them one decade and $12 million.

They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down, underwater, in practically any surface including crystal and in a temperature range from below freezing to over 300 degrees C.

And what did the Russians do...?? They used a pencil.

++++++++++++++++++++++++==============++++++++++++++++++++++

Case 2:

One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was the case of the empty soapbox, which happened in one of Japan 's biggest cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soapbox that was empty. Immediately the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department. For some reason, one soapbox went through the assembly
line empty. Management asked its engineers to solve the problem.

The engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soapboxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty. No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they spent a huge amount to do so.

But when a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed with the same problem, he did not get into complications of X-rays, etc., but instead came out with another solution. He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on,
and as each soapbox passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.

Moral Of The Story: Always look for simple solutions. Focus on solutions not on problems.

The Secret of Banana

But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

Anemia: High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure: This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

Hangovers: One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Mosquito bites: Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at wor k leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and crisps. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

Ulcers: The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature control: Many other cultures see bananas as a "cooling" fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.

Smoking &Tobacco Use: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

Strokes: According to research in The New England Journal of Medicine, eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

Warts: Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, "A banana a day keeps the doctor away!

Want a quick shine on our shoes?? Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly on the shoe...polish with dry cloth

PS: Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time!

Never too late

今天发现Never too late, 似乎当中告诉了我什么... Never too late... 不要嫌太迟...

生活中,我似乎错过很多东西,直到失去了,好像觉得不能再回头了...

Never too late... 只要还有生命气息,还有机会,尽管结果不一样,仍然面对它...

Never too late... 生活的表态,积极的表现,努力向前。

嗯,就是never too late!

I do it anyway.

Lost in dream...

昨晚太累了,前晚没睡好的关系... 接着就去躺躺... 一躺下去... 不得了,就是进入梦乡了。。

在梦里,我无法想起自己梦到什么。。场景换来换去。。。“迷失”在梦里,但我记得其中一幕。。。

也是最后一幕。。。我从一间房子出来要乘搭巴士回去,所有人上去了,我想起有样东西还没拿,翻查了书包,果然没有了。。。于是争取时间,巴士还没开动,我就跑回房子里去找。。。在紧张之余,那样东西出现了。。我找到了。。。。我找到我要找回的东西。。。

那就是圣经!


于是,我的意识回来了... 继续睡,到天亮。

上班之前,拿起圣经,背起了一段的经文...

哥林多后书四章17~18节。
我们这至暂至轻的苦楚,要为我们成就极重无比、永远的荣耀。原来我们不是顾念所见的,乃是顾念所不见的;因为所见的是暂时的,所不见的是永远的。


之后就上班去了... 荣耀归于上帝。

万年烟宣教-心情随笔

手机随拍+心情记录

2008-09-25


出发... 老实说,最希望就是同事不要打电话来,但反正上机都是关机的,就安心的出发吧...




3.47PM - 经过两个小时多的行程到达美里机场,望出去,一片辽阔的风景。



5.49pm - 登上美里加拿大山... 参观以前留下的油井,有种历史再现的感觉...


7.33PM - 晚餐... 我们喝... Carlsberg啤酒...!? 其实里面是凉水,很特别的包装吧。



11.06PM - 独自在布告板上看教会家庭成员的相片,唯一一张具有感触的是,钦福长老全家福的相片,如今他已经安息主怀。.... 我心想.....

第一天其实蛮累的,因着前一晚开会,加上休息不足,起身又早,精神上显得疲惫。第一晚就在美里福音堂睡,补足精神。

Thursday, September 25, 2008

出发!

终于等到今天了,万年烟宣教队,预备出发!

一切都交托给上帝了!

哈利路亚!

Top secret

“それは、内緒よ。”
[“那个是,秘密哟。”]

どこにも、こころはあのひとを考慮します。答えは、なんだ?俺にもわからない。

心配のことがいっぱい。どうしてかな?

Top Secretはいったいなに?それは、内緒だよね。

“絶対可憐、だから負けない、あしたへ、さあ、行こう”

こころのリミッター 解き放たれたら、ホラ!Change the World!

イエス様は俺の力だ。

イエスクリストは昨日も、今日も、いつまでも、おなじだ。

それは、内緒かな?いいえ、内緒じゃないよ、だからイエスは世界のひかりだ。

砂拉越万年烟宣教...

今夜继续翻开马来文的圣经... 不断做短宣前的预备。

说真的,和去年一样,心情还是很紧张... 真怕自己预备不足。

这次要预备一个默剧,不断的重复复习

Lifehouse Everything Skit




还有其他的... 这次去,唯一只有Ps Yusuf以外,其他人我都不太熟悉... 加上这次钦福长老已经过世,去到跟他们配搭,难免会有伤感,但大使命始终是需要去完成的,继续跟新的一班人配搭。

继续努力,和工作一起加油,把琐碎的东西都搞好... 这次去到万年烟,也是我不熟悉的地方...毕竟砂拉越很大,不太可能全部都懂。万年烟(Balingian)是沐胶省省一个县会。位於木胶和达斗之间。

继续的预备... 不知道会发生什么事,但我知道祂掌管一切...

Ku datai, ku nyerah samoa iya
O Tuhan ku, sambut tuboh
Semangat nggau pengidup!
(i come,i give my all,oh God,
received my body, spirit and my life...)

Tuchi ku, iri ku enggau Roh Nuan
Terima ku nyadi anak Nuan
Ku nesal ari dosa, pengingin ba dunya tu
Tegal rindu, amat rindu ka Yesus
(wash me,flow me with your spirit.
accept me to be Your child.
im regret from the sins,desire of the world
with love,very much love to Jesus...)


Diatu meh maya iya
Tuhan ngelawa bansa ku
Ayan ka meh pengasih,Nuan Tuhan
Ngidup ka bansa ku
(this is the time
God invite my race
show your love,god,
to risen my race...)

Turun ka meh ujan nasal ati
Turun ka meh ujan slamat Nuan
Turun ka meh ujan kuasa Nuan, Tuhan
Ngidup ka bansa ku.
(Fall the rain to regret
Fall the rain your saviour
Fall the rain your power God
Rise up my race)


Puji Meh Tuhan Enggau Pengabis Ati

她Part II

想想,这次是第几次打电话过去了...

真怕自己没有话题,实际上,每次都有很多话题说...

有时问自己,是不是自己错过了?错过了什么?

是她吗?真的是她吗?

我是认真的吗?我真的明白吗?

还有很多问题问自己...

也许想太多这些问题让只会自己钻牛角尖,不敢跨出去...

尽管如此,我知道一件事,就是... 我在想她。


或者自己后知后觉吧,兜了这么多圈才发觉,

寻觅过去几年的照片,

发觉真的不一样了,她成长了,

而我不知不觉在意她...


或者是自己不善于表达,

或者自己封锁自己的心,

或者... 或者... 或者什么了?


希望神能给我机会,

赐我有勇气、智慧,

让我晓得如何面对,

珍惜现在所拥有的。

哀悼钦福长老...

昨天下午1点40分,钦福长老安息主怀。

此消息对我而言,不是惊讶的消息,之前已经做了心理准备接受这个事实。

他的离开也许是教会的损失,但,我深信他离开过后,会有很多人站起来,服事主。

我也不例外,我只有在主里面坚强壮胆,继续成长。

如同钦福长老一般,竭诚为主!

明白一件事情

今天明白了一件事情,
看回过去,好像一切是过去了,
但其实是永恒的,
常常为着分离,感到无奈,
无论亲人,无论朋友,
好像觉得过去的时光不再,
但今天总算明白,过去的时光,没有过去,
至少在心里面知道,那段回忆是无法忘记的,
过去,也许时间上无法回头,但价值却是永恒的,
更要向着未来,向着标杆直跑!

Tuesday, August 05, 2008

她,离开这里有一段时间,
虽然从一开始我就知道结果会是这样,
但心中始终有些舍不得。

今晚,打了一通电话给她,
接通后,我差点惊慌失措,
发觉她虽然是在遥远的地方,但声音却是近在耳边,
很多话想说,想问候她的近况,好像一说就不可收拾的感觉...

经过这么多年,发现她成长了,
许多事对她来说,都是不容易的,
但都一一的经过了,
未来对她来说是个未知数...

一段时间的分享,发觉今年有很多变化,
就她自己也无法预料,
但,她知道,谁掌管着明天...

聊久了,谁也不想就这样挂上电话,
分离,虽把空间拉远了,
但,却无法疏远心与心之间距离。
最后挂上了电话,留下的,都是心里的祝福...

祝福她,未来的日子过得有意义,
祝福她,生命影响生命,造就更多的人,
祝福她,永远跟随耶稣的脚踪...

天下无不散的宴席,以后有机会再见吧。

sound of my heart



ねえ、聞こえる?わたしの心の声
美しい音は、私を囲む
神は、私の人生を素晴らしくする

Hey, do you hear? Sound of my heart
A beautiful sound surround me
God make my life wonderful

嘿,听到吗?我内心的声音
优美的旋律,将我围绕
上帝,使我人生极美好

Heh, dengar tak? Suara hatiku
Bunyi yang nyaman mengeringiku
Tuhan jadikan hidupku sejati

저기, 들려?나의 마음의 소리
아름다운 소리는, 나를 둘러싼다
신은, 나의 인생을 훌륭하게 한다

We are the reason...



As little children 孩提時候
We would dream of Christmas morn 我們夢想在聖誕節早晨
Of all the gifts and toys 找到我們的禮物與玩具
We knew we'd find 我們知道我們會找到它們
But we never realized 但是 我們未曾明白
A baby born one blessed night 曾有一個被祝福的夜晚 一個嬰孩出生
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives 給我們生命中最珍貴的禮物

We were (are) the reason 我們就是祂捨命的理由
That He gave His life
We were (are) the reason 我們就是祂受苦與犧牲的理由
That He suffered and died
To a world that was lost 在這個迷失的時代
He gave all He could give 祂給了祂的所有
To show us the reason to live 告訴我們活著的理由

As the years went by 當歲月流逝
We learned more about gifts 我們學會更多關於禮物的意義
The giving of ourselves 當我們學習付出時
And what that means 我們才明瞭
On a dark and cloudy day 在一個黑暗 烏雲密佈的日子
A man hung crying in the rain 有一個人在雨中 被掛起來 哭泣著
All because of love, all because of love 全是為了愛 都是為了愛

We were (are) the reason 我們就是祂捨命的理由
That He gave His life
We were (are) the reason 我們就是祂受苦與犧牲的理由
That He suffered and died
To a world that was lost 在這個迷失的時代
He gave all He could give 祂給了祂的所有
To show us the reason to live 告訴我們活著的理由

I've finally found the reason for living 我終於發現活著的理由
It's in giving every part of my heart to Him 是將我心的每一部分獻給祂
In all that I do, every word that I say 我所做的每件事 我所說的每句話
I'll be giving my all just for Him, for Him 我將我所有的獻給祂

He is my reason to live 祂就是我活著的理由

我背后的翅膀...

...曾经拥有一双翅膀,远走高飞
...曾经飞翔在高空中,眺望大地
...曾经眼神交错瞬间,误闯禁区
...曾经就这么遭袭击,受伤坠落

受伤的翅膀,无法再度飞翔
黑暗的来临,无法确定方向
体力的消耗,无法摆动身体
心灵的疲惫,无法继续思考

还能想什么?还能做什么?
还剩下什么?还留下什么?

背后的翅膀

手机随拍*回顾2007(一)

最近翻一翻自己的手机,发现自己随手拍下的相片,发一些上来回顾一下。。。。讲述图片的故事...



9 Jul 2007 - 新生工作期间,在校园内宣传活动,其中一个就是《人民的宪法权利》。我们请到一名律师来亲自讲解这个课题,他就是《我在黑帮里的日子》的作者,猜猜他是谁?



13 Jul 2007 - 迎新晚会,当天有“垮栏杆”,呵呵... 我腰力不行...

19 Aug 2007 - 在公干期间,带领学员们建立一个纸塔,这是三组里面最稳固也是最高的塔。其秘诀就是,稳固的根基。


好了,暂时今天发这么多,接下来还有一些,留给下次再发出来分享给大家看。

整理我自己

进过几个星期的“恶斗”,某网页的程序也告一段落了,一时无法回过神来,发觉今天又是Saturday了...日子一去不复返,过了今天,还有明天,日子是否过得有意义,哇,我是不是想太多了?

いつまでも、我还是我自己,今天日子如何,明天日子如何,我还是我自己。Sampai bilakah,我能结束旅程呢?Well,不是我现在能预测的。えっと、奇怪了,なんで?我似乎乱了阵脚,生活节奏改变了,思想貌似也在改变中,于是收拾房间来,以便能转变心情一下... 时间就这么过了,收拾还真不简单,马上就觉得累了,= =||| 无语...

まあ~习惯就好,今天即使觉得不够用还有明天,无论何时,尽力而为就是了,做不成的,还有明天能继续,珍惜今天,活在“现在”。话说我好像要“整理”自己一下,今天又是下雨天,接下来的一步是怎么走的...?洗个澡,慢慢想,洗个衣服,再慢慢想,出去完成,继续想想,答案,真的有吗?也许一时间找不到,但,总会有出路的...

房间收拾完毕... 也该收拾心情了,为了明天,还是得休息,有空,更要整理自己一下 ^_^

工作好累,用尽脑筋,把程序写完... 累,除了累,还是累... (别被我影响哦。。呵呵。)

我到处都开了部落格,到处流窜,到处穿梭,貌似要在部落格找到我的行踪还真不易呢...

最近一个新的部落格是在中国开的,地址是....

http://earnlife.ycool.com

(我是不是很无聊?开了一大堆部落格,不管怎样,开了就开了,继续努力吧~hoho~)

现在每天都在“暴走”,加上马来西亚的天气又恢复炎热,外头酷热的天气,实在受不了... 程序该怎么写,头脑迟钝,只好出去走走,回来网络到处穿梭一番,再次回到工作“暴走”~!

写完这篇之后我也要继续暴走,向前冲了。。。(很赶,真的很赶时间。。。)
