What are we doing tomorrow night?
Saturday, October 07, 2006
"Passion makes the world go round. Love just makes it a safer place."

I've always been a little bit of an extremist. When I love something, I put every ounce of my being into it. I really can't recall when I became this way, but it's given me a genuine sense of contentment. I have countless passions, and only one life in which to fulfil them with. Those who know me, will no doubt have heard at one point of time or another my incessant ramblings about great people I want to emulate. Lee Kuan Yew (Statesman), IM Pei (Japanese Architect), Henri Cartier Bresson (Legendary Photographer), Peter Nicol (World's former No1 Squash Player), Bill Gates (He can buy your mama), I think you get the picture.









These people all had one thing in common I believe. And that is they were passionate about what they did. They reveled in every moment, soaked in every challenge, and had a "Bring it on!!!" attitude to life. They were good at what they did, not only because god had endowed them with innate and sublime talent, but also because they truly loved doing it. Is it about the money for Bill Gates? To extend his empire and his seemingly endless fortune? I seriously doubt it. Sure, the perks are great, but if money is the end game for you, you might be able to do well, but I doubt you'll ever be GREAT. You'll never be extraordinary.

Don't get me wrong though. You could be passionate in something, and still not achieve greatness in ANY measure. However, like our dear brain below, hey at least you had a damn good ride while you were at it. And how many people can actually claim to have had that?


Stay tuned to this blog. Cause ming is going to be doing the same thing he does every night. Try to take over the world!
