About Being the Best of Ones potential

A Slow Monday for catch-up

Japan Lavender Furano

Feeling Blue or Purple? Fields of Lavender in Furano, Hokkaido

Today is rather slow. Recovering from my travel the day before. Work today revolves around  planning for the week deliverables and also activities for the week.  My company Quarter 1 begins in July 1st, so going thru the commit and also trying to work on the Lead indicators to my projects my team is undertaking. I usually chunk them out to weekly task and achievement whcih acts as a lead indicator when we measure them weekly on the completion to surface out project bottleneck or constraints. Focus on the weekly deliverables,  the end date will take care of itself. This, from experience gives a 80% chance of project meeting the first committed schedules.The other 20% will be contributed by areas that is not within your circle of influence.

Spend the rest of the day looking at the market and learning more about the Trading.  USD/GBP pair is the focus for me today. Looks like at the time of my blogging is going up more than 20 pips already. I set my limit at 30 pips, so keeping fingers crossed. Good chance with Stochastic going up and ADX looks strong.

Project Management is all about

  1. managing your stake holders, updating your sponsors and core team on the progress of the program.
  2. marketing the project in order to create the hunger for your audience to want it , which will help the ease of deployment which  the push  and with the right marketing , the end user will pull ( higher acceptance rate).
  3. meet you commitment on the delivery per the scope and function committed.
  4. Influencing others skill set  and leading cross functional tohave common goal and get core team accountable.
  5. Ensure there is KPI ( Key Performance Index) or Success indicator reflecting the program health at weekly level.
  6. And most of Have fun along the way.

Tech Glitch and Fix of the day: My iPhone acting up again, everytime it complete one song in the play list it exits. Not able to play 2 songs consecutively. The only way I could fix it is to restore the defaulted  setting which took almost 45 minutes and all to restore the original behavior.

On weekend that I go back to my hometown which is like at least 3 times a month depending if I have to travel for my work else will be every week. Firefly ( Malaysia Budget Airlines – subsidiary of Malaysian Airlines – MAS) is my choice of transport mode. For budget travelers book ahead of time like 8-9 months ahead of time, much cheaper than driving ( KL-PG). I have my booking till end of the year. But of course I am prepared to burn some flights due to last minute Work travel changes or emergency that need me to be here in KL or oversea.

Had breakfast with Family and Dad , having “Roti Canai” and “Nasi Lemak” for breakfast before sending the children to the Academy Of Squash for their weekly training. They called it grass root training, in the hope that another Nicole or Ong Beng Hee emerges. The Academy is supported by Head  , manufacturer of squash and tennis rackets  and the academy is also the home ground of Nicole David where she started. Used to be called Pepsi Squash Center till the sponsorship expired. The Penang State team was training there and notice a lot of secondary school have taken interest and a lot of schools book the courts and have some level of coaching sessions. Good to see the Sport squash is growing interest and mushrooming.

Took the family and Dad to watch Harry Porter and the Half Blood Prince. Children was anticipating more action , I presume the show is heightening up the storyline to prepare for a bang in the next movie since Professor life ended. Opps forget what I say for those who have not watch the movie but then again a lot of folks have already read the book. Overall good movie. So go watch it.

Immediately after the movie, had to rush for dinner as taking a flight back to KL and back to work tomorrow.

Tech Glitch of the Day: iphone somehow stop after each song even after reboot, so did put a second thought , but when I sync up, computer request for restore backup. So in the process lost some photos that I wanted to share with you all. Currently worked fine. So not sure what is the issue nor the root cause.
