Pray for his soul



Earlier, I met up with Karlo for a business meeting in Bonifacio High Street. I wasn’t there when the explosion echoed, but from what my cousin tells me, it was blaring. They saw the body of the poor soul being moved out of the car. I had my camera yet I thought twice if I should take the shot. I took it.

Very sad. Very unfortunate and so close to Christmas. Let’s pray for his soul and for his family.

The Envii

Hey folks, I’m back and posting between the sniffles. My seasonal flu is spot on with the weather change. Because of this I haven’t really had the time to fiddle with something that came through the mail – the Verzio Envii, which is Verzio’s first Windows Mobile 6 handheld. First saw this little thing at the Verzio store in Bonifacio High Street and lookie here – there’s finally one in the mail.

So I finished a book while waiting in the book store …

Alright i’m such a geek. While waiting for a friend at Fully Booked at the Bonifacio High Street, I was actually able to finish Seth Godin’s The Dip lying around the third floor business section.


The Dip, a book I fondly call “the little book that quit” is a short (80 pages!) and tiny little number that talks about knowing when to quit. The Dip also comes with some famous doodles from Hugh McLeod.

The old saying is wrong-winners do quit, and quitters do win. [PS The Dip just hit #5 on the New York Times bestseller list.]

Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point-really hard, and not much fun at all.

And then you find yourself asking if the goal is even worth the hassle. Maybe you’re in a Dip-a temporary setback that will get better if you keep pushing. But maybe it’s really a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better, no matter how hard you try.

What really sets superstars apart from everyone else is the ability to escape dead ends quickly, while staying focused and motivated when it really counts.

This is my new book recommendation for the month as it talks about the art of quitting. It also pays close attention to quitting jobs and moving to something more productive to help you become more remarkable as a human being. Short story is, if you don’t feel remarkable with your current job, then quit.

I recommend The Dip because not only is it informative, it is also affordable and easy to read. You can finish the book in an hour or less.
