Looking For A Frontier ?


Laos Map       
In the 1990's South East Asia was a backpackers paradise. But, Laos, a nation in the heart of South East Asia was fast asleep while it's neighbours , Malaysia, Thailand , Singapore and since Vietnam,Indonesia and the Phillipines moved away from colonial economies and romped on to become tiger economies . This resulted in the region undergoing tremendous transformation in becoming an investor's dream - growth rich economies , booming retail spending in tow and with companies and governments loading up on debt , much in US dollars. That invited investment bankers in.

But today Laos is astir. It is expected to grow 7% annually. This boom that has taken off is fuelled by mining and hydropower . The country is aflow with rivers and waterways cutting through its mountains and jungles stocked with minerals.Laos's export revenue from copper and gold is projected to reach billions.Laos has launched a modest stock market, intending to attract capital to its growing enterprises and pour funds into its economy.Large energy-related deals , special economic zones and broader fiscal incentives being primed for its future , the sort of launchpads that provided the springboards for industrialization in the tiger economies , are huge engines for growth.Shopping malls , cars and motorcycles clog the streets of this once sleepy hollow.Laos is finally landlinked from being landlocked. This is a new frontier

A Rotting Economy Can Spoil Your Goals

One of the worst kept secret is that employees make less on average every year. There are scores of reasons for this.Staying employed at the same company over a period of  years on average is going to make you earn less over your lifetime. Very substantially less - perhaps by as much as 60%. Think average pay rise spans , inflation rates and what has come to be talked about as 'market trends'.What are these 'market trends' ? These are the various ways economies can go - up , down , recessions and bumps and firms seize on these sentiments to cry alarm , declare pay freezes , cancelling bonuses , imposing pay cuts and even worse write out pink slips.Office politics pitch in too on the robbery.

The message here is it doesn't pay to be a sitting duck to sudden scenarios, to be an ostrich or even ascribe divine powers to your employer that they will somehow keep you on the job  or that they'll keep you swinging happily in the firm's hammock garden.

Is There An Option ?

Why Dream ?

Dreams move us forward. They populate us with energy. They make us unstoppable , fill us with gas.Dreams lift you out of the swamps pointing you towards the oceans.

Many have shelved their dreams or thrown them out the window or lost hope on being what they'd rather be.We must remember that we are where we are, and what we are because of ourselves. You are in your present situation because you have decided to be there and taken nest in the comforts you are getting . YOU made all the decisions and picked the choices you did , to nestle in your present peggings.  
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

 Take Mark Twains advice - it could light up or 'save' the rest of your days from humdrum.

Don't Get Stuck ....

Poverty is going to spread because governments are not grappling with issues that are capsizing the boats of families . In most countries the  political class , is so far distanced from the hardships of a normal life that they can't even connect with the poor.

Despite having resources aplenty political leaders in country after country have come under no pressure to be truly driven to substantially reduce poverty . In several cases families  whose lives have gone under water , who can't even pay for their daily provisions just give up on seeking help and wait for an end to their days.They are just a health bill, a payday , a loaf of bread away from slipping under drowning their families along.As voices decry this apathy the toll on families continues to spread .

Ultimately whose baby is it ? Is it the government's? Or helping hands from kith and kin ? Or yours ?

The first instance of stewardship is always the individual's.

Doing something about what is coming or preparing against doomsday is still the individual's.


Don't fail yourself.

Be A Sheep

Sheep have traits, characteristics, mannerisms and feelings that make them an excellent illustration of being bold in life.


Sheep are not always the passive creatures that one imagines in green pastures. Everyone who raises sheep will tell you, “Never turn your back on a ram.” Many have been seriously injured when they ignored this advice. The butting of rams seems almost ceremonial among them. They do it apparently to establish social rank, to get food, to get out of a gate, or to settle their differences. Sometimes they do it to gain attention.

Sheep have excellent peripheral vision. Their large, rectangular pupils allow them to see almost 360 degrees. In fact, they can see behind themselves without turning their heads!

By nature, they will always seek light and higher ground in the pasture

They have an exceptional capacity to sense danger

A Bridge You'll Come To ...

There are bridges to cross in life

And forever and forever,
   As long as the river flows,
As long as the heart has passions,
   As long as life has woes;

There is a bridge, I’ve been told,
Legend declares it is very old,
Far away, it is not easy to find,
Some say it takes a whole lifetime.

We begin to groan with middle age years,
Time passing too fast has become our fear.
Regrets for things for which we never had time,
Alone now, we are left with memories sublime.

Tottering, doddering, now I am frail,
Nodding, I fall asleep and dream of a trail,
It leads to that bridge, of which I was told
Long, long ago, before I grew old .
