Thought on thinking...

Finally, the final exam is almost end. This indicates the end of year 2004 studies. Now is the time to focus on self improvement. What is our target?
November to December is always the time to review our whole year progress, what have you achieved until now? Do you satisfied with your achievement?
I had achieved my partial goal, with the help of many people. What i want to say here is remember to set your general goal. However, you must set secondary goal to support your general goal. Without secondary goal (or we normally refer it as small goal), the dream is just a dream.
My friend quoted, "Thinking drains energy." Yes, dreaming and thinking only drains your energy away. It does not produce output. Remember, dream and action always comes side by side. Thinking is good but without action, it is merely drain your energy.
How many year do you have? You never know right? Remember, waste no time, go for it, do it now!~ Tomorrow is another new day for challenge.

All the best!
Woei Hau

If we just had faith and practice and no study, we could easily follow a blind faith, which is not grounded in real understanding.... If we just studied, without practice or faith, we would be following a theoretical and intellectual teaching (Flow 343, pp.19). We shall study while practice to have in depth understanding of the philosophy of life. I cannot answer other combination, but everything is lies within us. Think about the previous example about turn on/off the light. Have fun.

An real life example in discussion is to switch on the light. Do you need to study all electrical knowledge behind the switch in order to turn on the light? No, you just need to know the procedure (faith) and trust that it will works. Then, if you interested, you will look into it in how to change the bulb, configure plug and get more knowledge
about wire etc. This will build your knowledge on what you belief (turn on the light). If you prefer to study everything before practice, you might be in darkness until the time you take into action.

life is a repeated cycle of trial and error: of believing, acting, observing the results of our actions, and thus either affirming or calling into question our original belief. This is exactly the way of thinking for most people. Imagine when we face any difficulties, we act on something we believe in. From the results, we double check the correctness of our action.

Take this piece of writing from internet. Different point of view will results in different kind of actions. Remember, do not expect others think exactly same as you especially those in relationship or at work. From the passage, the perspective of a worker is their job, not the company mission. If you're the boss, try to understand from workers' perspective and help them to visualize what you imagine. This will bring you good benefits.

Theory and Practice

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.
--Various attributions, mainly to baseball coach Yogi Berra

Theory and practice sometimes confuse us. For some reason, practice always leads to the success of a task. Theory builts the foundation of the task. In my opinion, both are equally important. They depends on each other to built a nearly bullet proof (well, nothing is perfect) task.

Researcher explores new technologies. Practitioner refines the technologies. Good luck!
