我那天去一個event 就是大家都不認識大家很多人不喜歡去的那種social 東西
我旁邊那個亞洲人第一句話問另一人就說”so ，what do you do”
這種大家都不認識的場合如果工作很了不起的人馬上就會很高談闊論基本上his inner status is set higher than you on the spot.
自己覺得自己生意還沒有很起來的人要嘛就是隨便屁但是覺得很心虛。要馬就是馬上feel inferior and try to make themselves look good 。所有的人都會有一點防衛心
我覺得你可以問”so, what have been busy about lately?” “What are you on about these days” ？
這個問題其實是一模一樣的但是另外一個被問的人就會把答案遷到他想要回答的地方有可能是工作有可能是興趣有可能是家庭什麼都好。但是你一開始的social level is set at the same 水平 and everyone loves to talk about the things they are passionate about.
昨天Willoughby girls high 前面那個penhurst road 交叉口在修路弄得亂七八糟我車子轉過去居然轉錯地方跟人家逆向向。那裡兩個工作人員嚇死我也嚇死。然後他們引導我轉出來的時候我根本沒看見一個大公車整個撞過來最後1秒緊急剎車（工作人員大叫）。我長這麼大第一次覺得冥冥之中有在保庇。
我對這個一點問題都沒有.因為對我而言他也是一種交易。小孩子厲害對我的business 名聲有好處所以不管家長怎麼鳥我不會不教你。I need you to make my business look good. 你怎麼樣對待我我就怎麼對待你for me 這就是一個business relationship.
有另外一種家長不管小孩子做的好不好尤其是得奬的時候第一件事情就會非常感謝老師.不管是字面上口頭上或是送禮物都沒關係。我們當老師就會覺得很受尊重。我跟學生家長在教學的期間保持友好但絕對都不是朋友。I do keep a good distance. All my past parents can tell you that. Good solid distance.
You will be very surprised what we can get and give if we choose to .
學生就算長大畢業以後還是不停的會回來找我。老師年紀越來越大人脈越來越廣給你的機會和suggestions are boundless.
It makes huge difference to your kid. Much more than the money you have paid. Trust me. We choose to be teachers because we love what we do and are good at what we do. We will be good mentor for your kids for life if you set it up right.
Respect and appreciated . You shall be returned in abundance.
Have you ever wonder what is your purpose in this world? I used to wonder about that all the time and feel anxious constantly .
因為那個時候I haven’t found a clear mission in life and not sure why I am here . Therefore I told myself to relax but still can never get rid of this anxiety and uncertainty .
就是覺得無聊還有覺得一年一年過很可怕。After coming back from Dubai I have totally shifted my mindset and found my purpose.
常常聽到人家說如果你想要做的事情是心流的時候你就會做得非常好完全也不管時間也不管賺多少錢。但是有趣的是reward will come following when that’s the last thing you care . And you feel very satisfied .
還是一樣教學生但是整個感覺不一樣成果也不一樣完全不找別人出去吃飯也沒關係because design the course for them as well as doing this podcast can make me even giving up sleeping . I can just do the work continuously without wanting to rest or going out.
所有的學生向心力更強了現在waiting list 更長也更是原本就是出類拔萃的小孩。Doing the teens podcast brings me the feel of making a difference . 人家常常說當你想要回饋社會的時候就是一切都很順利想要走下一步的時候。
別人笑說這是老人的症頭or you have too much time 我也不會有任何感覺 because judgement and criticism will longer effect me . It’s a real sense of purposeful life and fulfillment.
I am not a lifestyle guru I can’t tell you what to do . But I love to share how this works.
If not, it’s part of the process. You are one step closer to your purpose.
Everything you work hard to do will never be a waste .
I seriously think I have way too much energy. Some people are on the high because of drug or alcohol or sugar. My drug is competition.
Just love competitions and performances. Or just anything that is related to stage . Maybe being the real extrovert i just need to move and take on new challenges. Went to the area 6 competition tonight. Our club won the table topic I thought our president Chris was sensational.
Haven’t been writing for blog entries for a while cause life has been so hectic. I saw there are still many people checking on my blog daily and felt so guilty that I must come and say something.
Let’s record a podcast tomorrow then!
i must say it really takes some adjustment to come back to reality in Sydney.
Firstly it’s freezing cold and wet here. Huge difference .
Secondly we have a concert coming in 7 days plus exams in a month so there is no stop at all. I have such trouble finding accompanist for my singers that I called so many of them. There are some private matters that are stressful too .
At one stage I think my stress is overwhelming.
I learn to deal with it by writing down each issues. The problems, the worst thing that could happen , how can I make the worst scenario to be a little better, and what to do next. Then I just pray.
Strangely one of the worst issue that actually solves by doing this. The second day I suddenly had this A ha moment .
Write it down. Write down the worst it can happen. What can you do to make minimum damage. Pray. And aee what happened .
Then you might find a way to make it a little better.
I talked to quite a lot of different people since arriving in Dubai. I just have this great interest towards people. How people live. What are the hopes and dreams and what are their worries and concerns.
Of course I have mine too. No matter how paradise Australia might be or how fortunate my work and life might be we are always bombarded with different worries and anxieties and our mind is constantly learning to work towards it.
One thing I learn from people is that no matter how good a person's profession looks to you, regardless the huge salary package or life style they live in Dubai, deep down everyone is insecure about the future and everyone is looking for a better way .
I love talking to people. You learn from them in lots of different ways.
老師並不是需要貴重的禮物，雖然這個給我二百塊餐廳voucher 很令人高興，但是最高興的是他寫的令人感動的卡片。The messages she wrote made you feel that all my efforts over the years is worth it .
這種尊重老師的學生還有家長will go far in life cause relationship in life always go both ways. However you respect and treat others will come back to you in abundance 。
Havent been doing blog entries for a few days.
Firstly I got this eye infections due to contact lenses and was on my glasses all week which made me very dizzy.
Then caught the cold from a student . Lucky propolis is an amazing thing. A few drops with water has solved problem after 3 Days.
Now I am back. Not fun to be sick. This is actually my first unwell state for the whole year.
Money should be used in fun things not medicine.
So take care guys!
