Of Finger Pointing and Witch Hunting

You know who is the best person to catch a thief? The policeman? Maybe.... The Detective? Maybe too..... But the best person to catch a thief, is another thief because only a thief knows how another thief works.

So for someone who can come up with stories of how bribery, accounts manipulation, and all that stuff can happen in an association, that someone must have had the experience of doing so during his/her time in the association. Otherwise, how does he/she knows what is going on?

Another former boss of mine - I have many good bosses who has part to me many wise words, trust me on this - one of his wise words is, when you point a finger at someone for his wrong doing, take note that there are 3 fingers pointing back at you. Sometimes, the biggest culprit are those who yell thief!

When I was young (not that I am very old. FYI, I am still 24.....!), the advice that I have from my teacher (can consider as my boss too lah - albeit in a smaller scale), "Berani kerana benar, takut kerana salah" - Be strong when you are right, and scared if you are wrong - (Betul ker translation nie - sounds corny but, I know you know what I mean) but in the current world, it has turned upside down - "Berani kerana salah, takut kerana benar". So, when someone is loud, maybe it is not because he/she is right, but maybe because he/she wants to hide his wrongdoing so that others can focus on other people mistake than his/her own.

All this hype are clear intention to steer the issues away but of course, the words of the wise (yet again - but this time not from my boss) - "sepandai-pandai a squirrel hops, one day it will tergolek also"

Anyway, I found one saying in the internet which says "No matter how nasty people are to you, be nice anyway because there is nothing wrong about being nice". And another one which says "Some people are born a@%$&*# and no matter how nice you are to them, they will remain as such"

And with that, I end my article for the day....
Psst... all this time that I have been in hibernation, suddenly the urge to write increases......

Of People Who Thinks They Know Everything...

My former boss once gave me a very good advice - "little knowledge is very dangerous!" so, when one has very little knowledge about something, be very careful when getting information from that person, regardless whether the information was requested or otherwise.

Another former boss of mine gave me another good advice - "just because he is loud, does not mean that he is correct" so, when one person become so loud and so proud of what he or she knows (and blabber endlessly), does not mean that person is correct. Sometimes they are more wrong than right...

Do you know why American Idol has Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steve Tyler as judges? Because they are musicians who knows a lot about music - I mean A LOT! I think they did ask Ellen Degeneres to be a judge in one of the season but as we all know it, she did not last very long. So, just imagine if they put ermmmm .... David Beckham as a judge? Do you think that is acceptable? Maybe for hype purposes it is OK but reality wise.... So what is the lesson here?

The problem about people who think they know everything is... they do not want to listen to other people. They think they are the best.... in their own selfish world. They lack respect of other people's believe and idea, and they ridicule and discredit other people's effort and hard work.

OK... so much for those "word of the wise for the day...."

I met another blogger the other day who asked me why I shut down my blog? I smiled and said, "Its hopeless...." was my short answer. "You tak contribute, people say you are not supportive. But when you contribute, people start looking for your fault - witch hunting. You make money pun, people marah. You tak make money, you susah... How la?"

"Don't la give up. You are sharing with people your experience. Don't give a &#%$ of what other people say. Keep on writing...." And with that, I officially reopen my blog.....

So, how shall I open my new blog?

Another wise words perhaps?
Nah... I am just happy to write again....
