Desire less and Do more!

@ VOL 13 ON NOV 26, 2017

Thu Nguyen kind of person that have lots of desires in her past 24 years. However, until now she recognizes that she only had two hands and can't hold everything she had. Therefore, she choose to focus only on the most important thing - becoming better version of herself. When we desire less, we will have more time to focus on something more valueable, In the end, we believe that all things we did are worthy!

Forget about your dream job

@ VOL 13 ON NOV 26, 2017

It took Hong-Duong "KOYO" Do a long time to realize that a perfect job does not exist. Maybe we should shift our focus. We all have this wish of doing what we love for a living, but dream jobs should be about why we are doing the job we do.

@ VOL 13 ON NOV 26, 2017

Right when I read about the “What if” topic, I found out a note that my grandmother - who has passed away recently - sent me 15 years ago. I was crying as a child. It felt like that was the note from heaven. She told me "don't be regret, each time fail off you will be less silly a little bit. keep moving forward then you will have success". So instead of wasting time thing about "what if" for what we have done in the past, we should learn from that, less silly and focus on "what if" for the future....
