A Tree with Clocks on it

Time goes by so fast!

This amazing tree should be a symbol of everything warm and cheerful. Like hot coco, ham and keso de bola.

It's easier for kids to realize that but when you get older, it gets a lot harder.

It becomes an entirely different thing - a reminder of some sort. A refuge to some and to others a pain.

So the old clocks on this tree (however unintentional) is a perfect symbolism of a grown-up Christmas.

The magic is still there - but you just have to see beyond all the clocks to find it.

I Am a Shikamaru

I wish that I could be more like NARUTO but deep inside I am a SHIKAMARU.

Regarded as the laziest Shinobi of the batch - Shikamaru Nara whose main Jutsu is shadow manipulation, is also one of the most intelligent. His rare insight will always land him to leadership positions though he couldn't care less about ranks or positions.

When situation gets a little too confusing and "troublesome" he retreats. Like he said in one of the episodes - "It's not that I am Lazy, it's just that I don't care."

However, when genuinely needed - Shikamaru is always the most reliable person to get any job done.  

Here are some more quotes from this shinobi that I can very much relate to:
"Sometimes I wish I was a cloud... Just floating along, going wherever the breeze takes me."

"I could say I'm not sad, but I'd be lying. The problem is the world won't let me stay a kid forever, so I can't lie around crying about it either."

"Regardless of our limitations, we can always be of some use. Our power may seem insignificant... but it may just prove to be useful in the grand scheme of things."

"It's stupid to talk about things you're not. Be yourself and you'll be fine."

“Laziness is the mother of all bad habits, but ultimately she is a mother and we should respect her.” 🤣

Ano Gagawin N'yo Pag Nanalo Kayo Ng 700M sa 6/58 Lotto?


Simple lang ang isasagot ko - I AM GOING TO BUY SOME TIME!


And it is also the BEST investment that you can ever have! Better than Gold, Oil or a piece of land. You can have all the money in the world but when you fail to invest on TIME - all that money will be worth NOTHING.

Let's look at it this way:

When a company hires someone they usually look for people with a certain set of skills and qualities that they need in their organization. But whether the candidate are for top management position or rank & File, what they'll pay you for is YOUR TIME. In that aspect EMPLOYEES ARE ALL EQUAL the only difference is the value of your TIME.

You wanna know the real key to the success of people who have gotten rich in their chosen industries? It's TIME! They have lots of it. They are able to multiply themselves to people and things. More TIME means more opportunities to do whatever they need to earn more.  

On the employees end, if you apply for a job, more than your skills and charming personality, what you are actually offering employers are of course YOUR TIME. By investing TIME to learn more and be more, you increase the value of your TIME and as a natural consequence you earn more money or admiration - whichever is more important to you. 

Every single day, we trade or barter TIME. The crazy thing about this commodity is that its VALUE is dependent on whoever has it. You're the one who adds VALUE onto it. 

The sad part is that it's limited and once TIME is gone - it's gone forever. That's why wise people focuses more on the quality of time that they have rather than how much TIME they have.

However, more TIME will not guarantee you a happy life. You'll need to find out for yourself what matters most and invest more time on that. Sometimes we use time unwisely and that could be even worst than having no time at all. 

Now when I said buying some time - I am actually saying that I am literally going to use money to buy more TIME. How?

I am going to use the money that I won in the lotto (which is by the way less than 700M because of the tax) and invest it on businesses - I am going to buy people's time to help me make my investments grow.  

First task is to multiply myself in competent people - grow more hands and feet.

Currently, I am only using 2 hands, 2 feet and most of my TIME working just to earn a living instead of spending it with my wife and two kids. With the businesses in place, I am confident that i'll be able to have more of my own TIME.

Because I believe that more than money and all the material things this world can offer, TIME is the best thing that we can give to all the people that we love.
