I love my age


  1. What has changed at your loving age now?

    Long sighted. No?

    1. CW,

      I've become more perspicacious.

      Before someone hit me for using "big" words, its simply means I can see when the Emperor is not wearing any clothes ;)

    1. Penguin,

      I'll be 48 years young end of this year.

      Child of 67.

      Can say I grew up together with Singapore and seen first hand the changes!

      I'm not sheep OK? I'm a goat.

      Same same but different!


  3. As long as you are healthy, 80 years old is still young :)

    1. Frugal Daddy,

      I guess that's why the Chinese characters for above 60 is 乐龄 ;)

      Happy age!

    2. Got enough money is 乐龄


    3. 哈哈 CW。乐零. Happy zeros

  4. Hi Jared,

    So what kind of experience you have that can do it right? =P

  5. temperament,

    Thanks for your cheerleading!

    What Confucius said is quite true and applicable.

    孔子: “吾,十有五,而志于学, 三十而立, 四十而不惑, 五十而知天命, 六十而耳顺, 七十而从心所欲。”

    I no longer have illusions as to what I can or cannot do, and what's my strengths and weaknesses.

    Knows who I am and my what's my ikigai.

    Instead of setting goals to "accumulate" more, I am letting go of things and relationships that don't matter.

    Last night, mom and I had the heartiest of laughs while talking about me and my siblings when we were young.

    Totally unplanned and out of the blue.

    I am happy :)

  6. Hi SMOL,

    Option A: I love my age
    Option B: I love my life experiences

    I choose option B.

    I did come across and has work with many people at all levels of ages in different parts of the world. I realize it is never the age that matters. It is always the experiences! And te attitude to continue learning and continuing experiencing more of life.

    Frankly I did have experiences of supervising both old and young people before from 20s to even late 50s. I never look at their age, but their experiences, mindset and attitude matters more. Maybe also not so difficult to find out which "mindset substance" people belong to after talking to them a few times! :-)

    1. Rolf,

      You are more precise ;)

      Age and life experiences normally go together, but what you say is true.

      After spending time with people (verifying), we can spot "seniors" with 1 year work experience x 20, and those "high potentials" - even though they may have less working experience - that are leagues above everyone else... Even me!

      When I spot these "high" potential" juniors, I tell myself to be nice to them. They would be my future bosses ;)
