New Year Message 2010

1 Jan 2010 - Happy New Year! Wishing you and yours a safe, pleasant, healthy and prosperous 2010.2009 is gone. What you make of 2010 is entirely up to you. Our talk now is about the new. New year, new songs, new resolutions. But new for what? New for the sake of new? Don't think so.

2009 is gone. How're we looking forward? Confused? Confident? Where are we strong? Where is growth needed? Self denial won't help. Neither will simply going with whatever comes around.


* It's uncharted territory but 2010 is entirely up to us. Is our focus to create our future in information technology? The 900 pound gorilla that scares all is the unknown. What will tomorrow bring? Continually invest in knowledge with the traditional or the uncommon.

Employ whatever works for you. Use your working combination of knowledge, skills and experience to clear the fog of ignorance. Lifelong learning is the fuel for career and business growth. But don't trust the noise and window dressing.  Your learning decisions should be based on substance . What you make of 2010 is entirely up to you.


* And never forget desire. When roads get rough is complaining the way to go? Self pity is never what the doctor ordered. Desire must be your co-traveller. You intend to break barriers through Network technologies, but pray what is foresight without resilience? Java is your future, but is insight meaningful without a driving force? Can information security be your specialty without backbone?


* Information technology is the infrastructure of the knowledge economy. However should our approach be solely on money and jobs? Where do people and purpose come in? It's more about how you to differentiate and discover yourself in information security, programming, networking, engineering, web development or research.


You don't have to be just another IT professional or just another IT provider. Otherwise what is the point? Making a difference through IT may take you out of your places of comfort. But always see balance in the big picture. Keep perspective - think about now and also your long term. IT is both an opportunity to own your future and make an impact. What you make of 2010 is entirely up to you.


GO into 2010 with Enthusiasm. Otherwise what is the point?
Hook up with your passion and renew your strengths. Let's guide and inspire each other to THINK and ACT. Ideas without action are empty. Let's argue, learn, laugh and share together through the network as we contribute with IT.


I thank you and other members of the Jidaw community for all your best wishes for year as well as for the kind and thoughtful congratulatory messages on the NCS Fellow Award and our recent achievements


Thank you most importantly for your partnership. We are determined to drive change through IT and we're counting on partners with similar interests such as you, who share our values.

May Your 2010 be positively UNFORGETTABLE!!

Happy New Year Jidaw

Your new year message is quite interesting and serves as an additional stimulant to my already being pursued resolve to get the PMP certification (among others) this year 2010.

DISRUPT THE STATUS QUO!

     
1.

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.

 

 
2.

Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.

 

 
3.

You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.

 

 
4.

But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.

 

 
5.

"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.

 

 
6.

Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.

 

 
7.

GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.

 

 
8.

What is the use of ideas without action?

 

 
9.

Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.

 

 
10.

MAKE SURE THERE IS NO STANDING ROOM FOR EXCUSES.
