a year has passed..

Posted on the March 12th, 2013 under personal by

as the post title says, it’s been a year since i’ve laid eyes on my blog and updated any posts into it.. there wasn’t any specific reason(s) as to why i didn’t update the blog.. it was just because, i got tired.. and being tied up with so many things that i needed to work on, didn’t actually give me time to update it **so much for giving an excuse to myself not to update the blog 😛 ** perhaps boredom struck and took me along the way..

here i am, back in “action”, writing a blog post after a year has passed.. for most people, a lot of incidents and events would happen within a year – and i couldn’t agree more. lots has happened – good, bad, worse – but it’s all parts and parcel of our lives living in this world.. in summary, i would say the year was all that bad. on the other hand, i can’t say that it was all that good either. i suppose everything happened for a reason and it turned out to be balanced at the end of the day :-)

so, what’s happened to my blog? i really had no idea how “well” it became.. i decided to log into my cpanel and checked out the traffic stats, and to my surprise, it was interesting and surprising. i remember starting this blog some time in Sept 2011, and it didn’t have much traffic on a monthly basis.

in the first 2 months starting the blog, i’d say it wasn’t that bad for a newbie.. the hits were quite high **well, at least for me it was**.. entering Nov 2011 onwards, it began to decline.. i simply couldn’t figure it out why this happened.. i didn’t give up so i continued posting blogs as usual, until mid Mar 2012 .. this was when i began to get tired and was overworked and couldn’t continue to .. well .. update my blog :-) (you can check out the date for my last post below).. i stopped blogging but left it to run on its own without any updates whatsoever..

surprisingly, the traffic was.. err.. consistent? for me, it is! i never thought leaving a website to run for a full year untouched could actually generate such traffic!! no wonder all those “blogging gurus” out there said, no matter how wild or crazy or simple or dead blog you have, CONTENT is very important when you blog.. well, you might say my website is just not worthwhile to be looked at and may just seem like any other ordinary blog.. but to me, this website means something to me.. something precious.. it’s the same feeling you have towards something (or someone) that you dearly have feelings for and find it precious.. **noooo, it’s not “My Precioussssss…” like the LOTR movies.. but you know what i mean**

Again, based from the chart, the year 2013 started off pretty slow.. however, the number of unique visitors went up and number of visits/pages/hits were low.. and from my understanding, this is actually good because the blog is able to target readers or a certain niche.. it’s only mid March now and the stats looks pretty good in comparison to a full month of March 2012. i’m not that good in analyzing these stats but with more unique visitors with less hits/pages, means that there is some worth in this blog. but, i may be wrong :-) i’m always free to hear any comments from any of you out there.. i still feel somewhat or something is missing with the blog..

alrighty then.. looks like it’s going to be an adventurous and exhilarating 2013 ride for me 😀 i have lots to do now.. lots of ideas, planning, deployments, initiation, implementation.. well, u know the drill. i have to admit, it does feel good to know that the blog is making its way up. to my fellow blogger friends and readers out there, wait up for me ok? i know it’s not a rat race out there but it’s nice to have someone around to keep you motivated and driving you towards success.. till my next post!!

life mapping: a vision of SUCCESS

Posted on the February 7th, 2012 under personal,self improvement by

success is more than just economic gains, titles, and degrees.. having a vision of success means for you to have some sort of planning for success @ life mapping all the aspects that matters in your life. what i call it is self-evaluation.. similar to a map, you need to define the following details of your life – origin, destination, vehicle, backpack, landmarks, and route..

origin – who you are..

let's start somewhere..

a map has a starting point. your origin is who and where you are right now.. **hmm.. right now i’m in front of the computer writing this post.. hmm.. let’s see now.. hmm.. hehe, just kidding ^_^ ..** anyways, jokes aside.. most people when asked to introduce myself, i would say, “hi, i’m Shaz and i’m a root cause analyst..” simple, right? however, it does not tell you about who i am; it only tells you my present.. err.. well, it just tells you who i am and what i do for a living.. now, to gain insights about yourself, you need to look closely at your beliefs, values, and principles aside from your economic, professional, cultural, and civil status.. moreover, you can also reflect on your experiences to give you insights on your good and.. well.. not-so-good traits – skills, knowledge, strengths, and weaknesses. upon “further investigation“, i realized that i am highly passionate, generous, service-oriented, but i do get bullied or be stepped-on.. some say i am being “too diplomatic“.. oh yea, another thing.. i also have this thing called procrastination.. hehe.. i have an inclination towards the technical field and area of expertise.. i also like to analyse stuffs and think a lot, in which does take a lot of my time.. doing just that – thinking!! furthermore, i believe that life must serve a purpose, and that wars were destructive to everyone..

destination – a vision of who you want to be..

where do i go from here?

“Who do you want to be?” – now THIS is your visionnnn.. it is important that you know yourself so that you would have a clearer picture of who you want to be; and the things you want to change – whether they are attitudes, habits, or points of view. if you hardly know yourself, then your vision and targets for the future would also be unclear. there’s no harm for you to seek advise and ask around those closest to you – be it your best buddy or family or relatives or your co-workers.. maybe they see certain potential in you in becoming someone you would have never thought of :-) your destination should cover all the aspects of your being – physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.. continuing with my story, after i have defined @ re-evaluated my beliefs, values, and principles in life, i decided that i wanted to have a balanced lifestyle and a certain extend of freedommmmmm..**wait a minute, does this means i’m still not that clear of who do i want to be?! daymn!! well, nevermind that.. i can always do this after i finish writing this post**.. moving on..

vehicle – your mission..

nice ride eh?

a vehicle is the means by which you can reach your destination. simply said, what it takes for you to get from point A to point B :-) it can correspond to your mission or career in life.. to a great extent, your MISSION.. **suddenly the script from Mission Impossible is running thru my head, dunno why – your mission agent Shaz, is to retrive bla bla bla yap yap yap yada yada yada.. ok.. enough of that.. for now** yes, your MISSION would depend on what you know about yourself. based on my simple self-assessment done above, i decided that i would most suited to become .. err.. an internet billionaire entrepreneur @ motivator @ trainer, and that i wanted to become one!! honestly, i never have thought of what i wanted to become, career wise.. until quite recently… describing my vision-mission fully, it was to live a life dedicated to serving the internet world in conflict-areas.. yes! i want to help others solve their problems and achieve what they want in life!

travel bag – knowledge, skills, and attitude..

where do u think u're going?

food, drinks, medicines, and other traveling necessities are contained in a bag. applying this concept to your life map, you also bring with you certain knowledge, skills, and attitudes.. these determine your competence and help you in attaining your vision. given such, there is a need for you to assess what knowledge, skills, and attitudes you have at present and what you need to gain along the way. this two-fold assessment will give you insights on your landmarks or measures of success. i realized that she needed to gain professional knowledge and skills on what works on the internet so that i could help others and at the same time be financially free @ internet entrepreneur.. i know that i procrastinate, so, i realized that this was something i REALLY want to change.. **boo hoo sob sob.. please bare with me on this, pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…**

landmarks and route – S.M.A.R.T. objectives..

i gotta be .S.M.A.R.T.

landmarks confirm if you are on the right track while the route determines the travel time. thus, in planning out your life, you also need to have landmarks and a route. these landmarks are your measures of success @ targets. these measures must be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time bound a.k.a SMART! you cannot set two major landmarks such as earning a master’s degree and a doctorate’s degree within a period of three years, since the minimum number of years to complete a master’s degree is two years.. and i have no idea how long it would take to complete a doctorate’s degree.. as an example, i have identified the following landmarks in my life map – completing my bachelor’s degree by the age of 25 (i did it when i was 24); earning a certain amount of salary by the age of 27 (sorry but i’d prefer not to disclose this.. i feel that there are people out there who does the same job AND earns more than i do – in which i achieved by the age of 28.. yup, i was a year off but at least i got it!!); cutting down my debts by 50% by the age of 30 (again, i was a year off for this one (i was 31) but to tell you the truth, i achieved a drop of about 75% in my debts.. if you’d like to know how, i can teach you.. it’s tough and time consuming but it is REALLY worth the effort and patience :-) ); zero debts by the age of 33; owning a property by the age of 34; marriage by the age of 35..??;.. and the list goes on.. i’ve yet to set my landmarks and route past age of 50..

anticipate turns, detours, and potholes..

the purpose of your life map is to minimize hasty and spur-of-the-moment decisions that can make you lose your way.. but often, there are times our plans are modified along the way due to some inconveniences, delays, and other situations that is wayyy beyond our control.. like in any path, there are turns, detours, and potholes therefore; we must anticipate them and adjust accordingly.. but most importantly, always do what matters most to you :-)

scam ke?

Posted on the January 30th, 2012 under personal by

hari ni, posting shaz dalam bahasa melayu.. agaknye sbb rasa bengang sgt dgn karenah manusia yg masih tak faham bahasa gak, so shaz rasa nak luahkan je kat sini.. bkn nak merendahkan org2 yg tgh cari rezeki halal, tapi nak cari makan tu biarlah dgn cara yg elok dan juga memahami perasaan org lain.. nak kata scam ke apa, shaz xde hak nak berkata sedemikian.. tapi semua mempunyai hak masing2 utk beri komen dan pendapat sendiri..

kisahnye macam ni.. i’m sure korg pun ada dpt call dr ntah nombor ape ntah, nak jual insuran ke pakej jalan2 cuti2 mesia ke semua benda tu, ye tak? kisah shaz pasal yg dok jual insuran ni.. jom kita mulakan citenye ye? mula2 dpt call — ckp dr cimb aviva.. ok, fine.. kebetulan masa tu mmg nak kena attend meeting, so dia pun ckp dia akan call lps meeting tu.. tapi takde pulak.. so biar la.. abaikan je.. benda tak penting pun sbb shaz dah ada insuran sendiri..

2-3 hari lps tu, shaz dpt call dr nombor yg lebih kurang sama.. kali ni ckp lain pulak.. ckp dari Air Asia, nak jual insuran AIA.. pelik.. betul ke? so mula2 dgr je la tp lagi sekali, kebetulan pulak nak kuar lunch.. gtau kat mamat tu yg shaz nak kuar makan, so dia yg ckp dia akan call balik ptg kang.. dipendekkan cite.. sama gak, no calls later in the afternoon..

tiba2 shaz tergerak hati.. dpt call dr nombor yg lebih kurang sama, tapi nak jual insuran dari pihak yg berbeza.. betul ke? benar ke? sungguh ke? shaz pun cite la kat kawan2.. dorg ckp mmg betul ada benda macam ni tapi dorg takleh nak ckp samada benda ni scam ke betul ke .. so they advised me to do more research on this..

shaz pun apa lagi, shaz contact best fren online @ google.. mula2 taip satu nombor tepon.. search..

*

*

*

rupanya ada forum pasal nombor tepon berkenaan.. ada la kot dkt 10 page org ngomel pasal telemarketer yg dok juai insuran ni.. shaz pun mcm “xpe la, dah penah dpt call ni, so pandai2 la jaga diri n nak bg details apa2 pun”.. at the same time, dpt call dr nombor yg lain pulak.. shaz pun jawab la.. dan seperti yg dijangkakan, telemarketer tepon.. nak juai insuran AIA dari AA.. time ni lagi la tak caya, dah makin keras hati.. takkan mula2 nombor lain, kali ni nombor lain.. macam dari 2 daerah/kawasan yang berlainan tapi juai benda sama.. depa ni buat francais ka apa juai insuran ni? shaz ckp “sorry, saya tak berminat, dah ada insuran sendiri..” and terus letak tepon..

*

*

*

sambung balik search dgn nombor2 yang shaz dpt.. 3 nombor yang berbeza.. and yes, betul.. mmg ada some sort of pattern.. ramai dah komplen, tak puas hati.. ada juga yg telah beri bank and personal details .. ada yg dah duit kena tolak dr bank account.. gara2 beli insuran melalui telefon tanpa meletakkan tandatangan.. is this a scam? can someone actually deduct money from your bank account without any written consent? kalau pakai credit card tu, maybe bole la kot tapi ni savings account?! shaz dah cuak.. teruih check semua banking account shaz (walaupun tak byk duit kat dalam akaun tapi duit jugak kan..).. seb baik takdak apa2 kena tolak..

utk sesape yg penah dpt call mcm ni, diminta berjaga-jaga dan tanyalah segala soalan yg anda rasa patut.. kalau tanak, ckp je tanak.. kalau yg telemarketer ni masih tak faham bahasa gak dan masih dok call tu, layan la org tu cara elok — dorg pun ada perasaan gak n dok cuba cari rezeki yg halal, ye tak? tapi kalau korg tu dah menyirap gak n tak tahan marah, terpulang pada u olz la nak handle macam mana.. nak repot polis ke, nak maki dorg ke, nak buat apa pun, tu korg punya pasal.. mcm shaz ckp awai2 tadi, semua ada hak masing2 utk buat apa2 pun :-)

oh ye, sebelum shaz stop tulis post utk hari ni, meh shaz share semua nombor tepon yg shaz dpt dari search yg shaz buat utk yg dok juai insuran ni.. shaz buat macam ni bukan nak halang rezeki org cari makan, tapi sekadar utk korg semua berwaspada dan berjaga-jaga.. tu je.. apa2 keputusan yg korg buat, itu semua dalam tangan anda sendiri :-) harap2 info ni dpt membantu korg semua n buat keputusan yang munasabah sebelum kena tipu ke duit hilang ke etc, ok? .. ni list nombor nye:
