Fowarded Email: Five corporate lessons


Corporate Lesson 1
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings.?The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.?When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbor.?Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 to drop that towel."?After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob.?After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 dollars and leaves.?The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.?When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, "Who was that?"?"It was Bob the next door neighbor," she replies.?"Great!" the husband says, "Did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?"

Moral of the story: - If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

Corporate Lesson 2
A priest offered a lift to a Nun.?She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg.?The priest nearly had an accident.?After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.?The nun said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?"?The priest removed his hand.?But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.?The nun once again said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?"?The priest apologized "Sorry sister but the flesh is weak."?Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way.?On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129.?It said, "Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory."

Moral of the story: - If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

Corporate Lesson 3
A sales rep and a administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.?They rub it and a Genie comes out.?The Genie says, "I'll give each of you just one wish."?"Me first!?Me first!" says the admin. clerk.?"I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world."?Poof!?She's gone.?"Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep.?"I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life."?Poof!?He's gone.?"OK, you're up," the Genie says to the manager.?The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."

Moral of the story: - Always let your boss have the first say.

Corporate Lesson 4
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day.?A rabbit asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?"?The crow answered: - "Sure, why not."?So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.?A fox jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story: - To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up.

Corporate Lesson 5
A turkey was chatting with a bull.?"I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, but I haven't got the energy."?"Well, why don't you nibble on my droppings?" replied the bull.?"They're packed with nutrients."?The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.?The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.?Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree.?Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Moral of the story: - Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

Revamp of Hati Web Site

CHARITY portal (Hati) is aiming to increase its number of volunteers through its revamped website, scheduled for a relaunch at a charity fair tomorrow at Plaza Mont Kiara.

To date, this website or information exchange portal has registered more than 230 volunteers to assist in the various projects run by the charities listed on the website.

According to a Hati spokesman, the charity portal hopes to capitalise on this network by incorporating an automated volunteer management system in this new website soon.

The website, first launched in 2002, was revamped to allow it to be a more effective platform for non-profit organisations and underprivileged communities to create awareness of their respective causes.

The website also acts as platform for charities and NGOs to exchange information, ideas and experiences.

The spokesman said the website began with the intention of closing a �gap.�

�This gap refers to the fact that there are countless charities in Malaysia on one end of the scale and many Malaysians keen to help on the other end but they do not know where to go or whom to contact,� he said in a recent interview.

Since 2002, the website has recorded a monthly visitor count of more than 2,000, he said.

To date, it has more than 150 charity listings on the website, but Hati does not collect donations on behalf of the charities listed.

�We encourage donors and volunteers to establish direct contact with the homes listed to contribute donations in cash or kind,� he said.

On the charity fair, he said over 10 stalls from different charities would be set up to raise funds for the respective organisations through sale of handicraft, array of food and books.

Hati will also have its own stall to showcase its new web portal.

The event will also see performances from the various charities such as the Yellow House Society of Kuala Lumpur, disabled friends from PJ Caring Home and Pusat Jagaan Kanak-kanak Kurang Upaya Kirtash.

Other performances included in the day-long affair are from Francesca Peters, Troubadours, Kenny Tay, Jason Lee from Astro talent quest, Soul Sisterz and the Bantus Capoiera Group, who will showcase the Brazilian martial arts skills.

The fair is sponsored by, among others, Sunrise Berhad, Kamdar Group Berhad, UiTM, Nestle, Dumex and Khaana Peena Restaurant Mont Kiara and De Cruz Entertainment.

Family means..

This came from a friend... very meaningful.

It is dedicated to those who have to work on Saturday and Sunday.


I ran into a stranger as he passed by,

"Oh excuse me please" was my reply.

He said, "Please excuse me too;

I wasn't watching for you."

We were very polite, this stranger and I.

We went on our way and we said goodbye.

But at home a different story is told,

How we treat our loved ones, young and old.

Later that day, cooking the evening meal,

My son stood beside me very still.

When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.

"Move out of the way," I said with a frown.

He walked away, his little heart broken.

I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.

While I lay awake in bed,

God's still small voice came to me and said,

"While dealing with a stranger,
common courtesy you use,
but the family you love, you seem to abuse.

Go and look on the kitchen floor,

You'll find some flowers there by the door.

Those are the flowers he brought for you.

He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.

He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,

you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes."

By this time, I felt very small,

And now my tears began to fall.

I quietly went and knelt by his bed;

"Wake up, little one, wake up," I said.

"Are these the flowers you picked for me?"

He smiled, "I found 'em, out by the tree.

I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.

I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue."

I said, "Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today;

I shouldn't have yelled at you that way."

He said, "Oh, Mom, that's okay.

I love you anyway."

I said, "Son, I love you too,

and I do like the flowers, especially the blue."


Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company

that we are working for could easily replace us in

a matter of days.

But the family we left behind will feel the loss
for the rest of their lives.

And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more

into work than into our own family,
an unwise investment indeed,

don't you think?

So what is behind the story?

Do you know what the word FAMILY means?


Pass this message to 7 people except you and me.

You will receive a miracle tomorrow.
Don't ignore and God will bless you

Talk and listen to your employees

Effective internal communication in a organisation lead to increased profits and a satisfied workforce.

Employees are the lifeline of an organisation. Business leaders must realise that employees today are not merely the arms and legs that run the company. They are also its eyes and ears, and their opinions and feedback play a vital role to the growthn of an organisation.

Internal communication between employees and management that is effective, open and clear will lead to better performance, customer loyalty, increase in profits, better employee satisfaction ratios and staff retention. Whether big or small, an organisation's ability to reach its business goals depends on how well it engages, aligns and motivates its staff.

Effective internal communication involves engaging your employees at all levels. By communication the organisation's goals and including employees in overall business planning, organisations can harness a greter resource of knowledge towards effectively driving the day-to-day business operations.

All employees need to understand their role within the company, not just in terms of what the job they do, or how to do it, but the part they play in the big picture. They will then align themselves with the company's vision and direction.

Effective internal communication helps you get the message across to the right audience in an open and receptive environment so that it can be understood clearly. Approaching people when they are receptive or willing to talk can make your communication efforts easier and more successful.

Communication with employees can take many forms, such as meetings, personal phone calls, memos, group meetings, telephone conferences or video calls and personal letters.

Keeping your employees informed is a critical part of helping them find satisfaction in their jobs. At Fedex, for instance, regular video-conference calls and a dynamic intranet site that changes constantly, help keep employees informed. In addition, an open-door policy allows employees to reach any member of management and share their ideas.

Manages also place much emphasis on equipping Fedex employees with the most updated informationn and tools so that they can be empowered to make the right decisions and provide execellent service to customers.

Of course, communication is never one way. It is imperative for managers to listn to their employees and gain feedback from them.

Feedback is essential, as it helps organisatios undertand the issue from a different perspective. For example, feedback from employees who have constant exposure to customers is essential in identifying the needs or requirements for future service improvements.

Listening to your employees is an essential part of communication effectively with them. This helps employees feel like an essential part of the business, and responsible for its success.

By focusing on internal communications, business leaders can make a real difference to the success of their business, and have a positive effect on its results and perfomance. Working closely with employees, sharing information about the compa's goals and listening to their feedback or suggestions, will help you to develop a cohesive team that is as commited to achieving these goals as you are.

Improveing communications in your work place whether they are a team member, a team leader, a manager, or a remote worker is a collective task. Listening and sharing goes a very long way in ensuring the sucess of an organisation.

Make your writing flow

Are you like everyone else in the corporate world who thinks writing is difficult? Think again. Writing is the easy part if you have the right structure.

Ask any corporate employee what they hate most about their job, and they universal answer will be writing. This is a sad situation because writing is not difficult. It is a process of putting together ideas using subjects and verbs, and adding adjectives, adverbs and articles.

The difficulty in writing is often caused by a lack of structure. Picture this typical scene: A busy employee sits in front of his computer with a head full of jumbled ideas and starts pounding out words on the keyboard thinking that it will all make sense in the end.

Not surprisingly, the end result is a mess, and the writer swears that writing is difficult as he tears out his hair trying to untangle the jumble that he just created.

To make writing easy, start with a structure. Before writing a report, e-mail, speech and presentation, take the time to organise your thoughts. Once an outline is established mentally, clear and effective writing will naturally fall into place.

Here are five structures to make writing simple:

1. Inverted pyramid
Trained journalists use this method to write newspaper articles, and it works well with any piece of written communication.

Typical of a newspaper article, the most important information appears at the top of an inverted pyramid in the first paragraph, and it answers the who, what, when where, why and how questions. The rest of the information is then presented in order of importance, with the least important informaiton at the inverted tip.

For example, if you are writing a press release announcing your company's quarterly earnings, then you would put the earnings result in the first paragraph because htat is the most important information that shareholders need.

To beging writing, answer these questions: Who? Company ABC. What ? Reported earnings rose 65 per cent to $100 million. Put all this together and you get: "The reported earnings of Company ABC rose 65 per cent to $100 million, or $10 per share, in the third quarter."

In the next paragraph, you answer the why question - why did profit rise 65 per cent? For example, "Revenue was driven by a 90 per cent surge in sales to the Middle East during the quarter."

In the third paragraph, provide a quote from the chairman beause shareholders like to hear from the person who is responsible for the result. The rest of the paragraphs in the press release should provide all of the financial details and back-ground information.

2. Egyptian pyramid
Management consutants use this method. It is actually the same as inverted pyramid style; it is just a mentally different concept of putting the most important information at the tip of the pyramid, and then adding information to build the rest of the pyramid down to the base.

For instance, a chairman who hires consultants to fin dout why his company is not profitable whoudl first want to know the problem. Thus, this information should be at the tip of pyramid.

The solutions to the problem then go into the middle of the pyramid, and the reason for the problem should form the based of the pyramid structure.

3 Number Priority
If pyramids are too difficult to conceptualise, then simply use numbers to organise information in written communication. This is a simple method of deciding in numerical order what the most important fact to be communicated is, followed by the next most important fact, and so on.

For example, if you are writing a memo in inform colleagues about a meeting, then the first paragraph should announce that a meeting is going to be held, and then provide the date, time and place. This is the most important information that the reader wants to know.

The next paragraph should state the purpose of the meeting, the third should describe the importance of the meeting, the fourth should provide any additional details and background, and you could sign off the last paragraph with a motivating mesage to encourage members to attend the meeting.

4. Beginning, middle and end
This method relies on skills learned in sschool on how to write essays. Start with a beginning, support the beginning with a middle, aand then end with a conclusion.

For example, if a report is being prepared for the board of directors to request funds for a $1billion plant expansion, start with the request at the beginning so that the reader does not have to wait until the end to find out the requested amount.

The middle section could focus on explaining the need for the requested funds, while the ending could carry a summary of the expected benefits from the capital expenditure.

5. Most important to least important
This structures simply groups the most important information and the least important information.

For example, an internal memo to employees telling them that salaries will be cut 20 per cent across the board is important information that needs to be stated right away at the beginning, and the benefits to the company from the salary cuts should be left to the end as this is the least vital information for employees.

In my opinion, blogging can improve your writings tremendously, over time.

well planned marketing

Even though I enjoy doing marketing and working as marketing consultant.. but I am still lacking skills.

When I first saw the advertisement for Lionel Richie concert to be held in Malaysia on March 2006, I thought maybe I should go and check it out. However, the ticket prices turned me away. They were selling at RM 900, RM 1300, RM 1550. Even my boss, who is his fan, said "we are poorer now.. with the increase of petrol prices and BLR.."

I agreed that we are definitely much poorer now, and we get even so when more reality bites factor in.

Then suddenly I thought that perhaps the concert might not be selling good enough, Lionel Richie might be dissappointed then.

However, little did I know that the event was really well planned.

It was held in conjunction with F1 event to be held soon and this set the mood for celebrations. The targeted customers are celebrities, dignities, orang-besar, socialites (like who?) and rich people. Of course, the organizer never expects people like me to attend the concert anyway.

Thus, of course, selling the tickets to these people are easy... and sometimes they are obligated to do so just to keep their profiles rolling. I was at the concert but I know that these people don't belong to the category of "gung-ho" die-hard fans of Lionel Richie. They will not stop at nothing to attend the concert but yet they will not stop to attend it too. To them, it is just part of life; being glamour.

Therefore, I have reasons to believe that these people already booked the ticket since months ago... the advertisement appeared only when more seats were available to be filled up.

In other words, the keyword to it is called "Glamour marketing"

Something for me to learn indeed.

修行有三種力量,我告訴大家,那是我自己本身的體驗,是我修行那麼多年的體驗。一個是「定力」,就是禪定的力量。一個是「慧力」,就是「般若」的力量, 「般若」就是「佛慧」。要「定力」,也要「慧力」,另外第三個力量就是「功德力」。「功德力」就是眾生守五戒十善,就是有善根。這三種力量合一,就是修 行,因為修行,可以把在「眼」、「耳」、「鼻」、「舌」、「身」、「意」、「意根」這些長久以來所有累世的習性消除,你需要這三種力,聚在一起,才能夠清 淨。(眾鼓掌)從此以後,因為你有這三種力量,你這「佛性」進入「阿羅漢」的身,就叫「阿羅漢」;進入「菩薩」身,就叫「菩薩」;進入「佛」本身,就稱為 「清淨真如的佛」。

Water consumption calculator

Download this Excel file to calculate your water consumption required daily tailored to your body weights.

The theory is ...

Water is an important structural component of skin cartilage, tissues and organs. For human beings, every part of the body is dependent on water. Our body comprises about 75% water: the brain has 85%, blood is 90%, muscles are 75%, kidney is 82% and bones are 22% water. The functions of our glands and organs will eventually deteriorate if they are not nourished with good, clean water.

The average adult loses about 2.5 litres water daily through perspiration, breathing and elimination. Symptoms of the body's deterioration begins to appear when the body loses 5% of its total water volume. In a healthy adult, this is seen as fatigue and general discomfort, whereas for an infant, it can be dehydrating. In an elderly person, a 5% water loss causes the body chemistry to become abnormal, especially if the percentage of electrolytes is overbalanced with sodium.One can usually see symptoms of aging, such as wrinkles, lethargy and even disorientation. Continuous water loss over time will speed up aging as well as increase risks of diseases.

If your body is not sufficiently hydrated, the cells will draw water from your bloodstream, which will make your heart work harder. At the same time, the kidneys cannot purify blood effectively. When this happens, some of the kidney's workload is passed on to the liver and other organs, which may cause them to be severely stressed. Additionally, you may develop a number of minor health conditions such as constipation, dry and itchy skin, acne, nosebleeds, urinary tract infection, coughs, sneezing, sinus pressure, and headaches.

So, how much water is enough for you? The minimum amount of water you need depends on your body weight. A more accurate calculation, is to drink an ounce of water for every two pounds of body weight.

The formula is..

( Weight-in-KG x 2.2 )/2/15) x 450

Anyone can explain this ?

Fwd Email: Info: John Hopkins; regarding Cancer

Since you are so important to my life, I am sending out this article from
John Hopkins for you to read and circulate. Please forward it to your family members,
your friends and anyone who is important to your life.

From John Hopkins, regarding cancer:

1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at
Walter Reed Army?Medical Center.

Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer.
Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this
Releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.

He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.

Instead, he recommends using glass or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the
dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass,
Corning Ware, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that Saran wrap is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.
As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

This is an article I believe you should forward to your family and friends -- anyone who is important in your life!

Fwd Email: Obstacles Present Opportunities

In ancient times, a king had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king's wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the big stone out of the way.

Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. On approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. As the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many others never understand. Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve one's condition.

Fwd Email: Pantun Harga Minyak Naik

Fowarded email about a Poem highlighting the social-political pains with regards to rising petrol prices in Malaysia. It is in Malay language.

Hari nie tah Hari berapa Pak Lah jadi PM kami
Memang dari dulu kami sokong sampai lani
Tapi Hari nie, buka Mata, senak perut anak bini

Memang kami tak tau pasai ekonomi
Yang tau semua Pak Lah ngan kroni
Tapi sampai bila nak jadi lagu nie
Dapat gaji habis tak berbaki

Pak Lah habag tak boleh buat apa
Nie semua ekonomi dunia
Kalau tak naik nanti dunia kata apa
Habis TU yang rakyat dok menderita, tak pa ka

Dulu Pak Lah kata nak jaga rakyat
Kunun Pak lah nak kerja sama sama dengan rakyat
Nie dok nampak macam nak telan kederat
Dok nampak kami yang nak melarat

Pak Lah kata masalah rakyat nak ambik berat
Kunun tak mau tengok rakyat hidup melarat
Tapi kalau macam nie punya sarat
Darah rakyat pun boleh sejat

Kerajaan Ada kata rakyat manja subsidi
Kunun asyik kerajaan saja dok bagi
Sapa kata kami rakyat tak pernah bagi
Tu...yang lima tahun sekali TU....sapa bagi??

Tiap kali naik harga, dok banding sini sana
Hampa tengok, kat Thailand lagi mahai dari Kita
Apa jenis depa punya kira
Awat tak ikut pulak Brunai punya harga

Brunai tak leh kira
Depa punya minyak berlambak tak terkira
Awat, minyak Malaysia tak dak harga ka?
Kalau tidak, tak kan jual minyak Kita beli minyak depa

Ada Petronas pun tak leh buat apa
Ada duit sikit, dah nak mengada
Pi buat segala menara pagoda kembaq dua
Nak tunjuk, kami la kaya

Petronas kata kami tak tau apa
Kerajaan yang buat kira bicara
Kami ikut apa depa kata
Royalti jadi ehsan pun kami tak leh kata apa

Kunun dok habag petronas hak rakyat semua
Pakailah minyak petronas, nanti untung dapat kat Kita
Nie, nak tanya la....tiap tahun untung beribu juta
Rakyat dapat apa ????? Kudis buta....

Hari nie petrol naik, tahan la lagi
Tengok pulak apa cerita esok pagi
Habis ikan, ayam, cabai sampai ke cili
Depa pun sama tumbas naik sekali

Nanti Ada la menteri tolong bercakap
Sapa naik harga dia nak pi tangkap
Sampai bila la dia nie nak ubah sikap
Ingat yang dok meniaga kat market TU heran kot dia punya cakap

Pak Lah mau renung nasib kami
Kais Hari nie makan untuk kemarin pagi
Anak kecik pun dok Ada lagi
Boleh hidup ka kami lagu nie

Dah tak larat nak tanggung cukai
Sini cukai, sana cukai
Dari tanah sampai ke pintu punya Ada cukai
Dah sampai masa kot Pak Lah kena guna akai

Jangan dok ingat rakyat macam Pak Lah
Gaji berpuluh ribu hidup tak susah
Ada anak pulak bisnes sebelah sebelah
Dapat tender pun tak payah susah susah

Kami rakyat bukan macam TU
Malah la nie pun dah Ada rebus siput babi dgan batu
Sedih sungguh ohhhh negara Ku
Biar tak merdeka terus pun tak la kalau lagu TU

Dah sampai masa Pak Lah ingat
Selesai masalah rakyat cepat cepat
Nanti kot rakyat naik meluat
Satu undi pun Pak Lah tak dapat

Cukup la sampai di sini
Tobat dah...aku tak mengundi BN kali nie
Parti Barang Naik pulak kot jadi depa lani
Kot Ada sapa nak Barang Naik lagi undi la depa lagi...

P/S: Don't take this the wrong way.
Poems are art.

At the same, another development about chronicle events of petrol rise for Malaysia. Also in Malay language..

28/02/2006 - RM 1.92 (kenaikan RM 0.30)

Nota : (ayat2 standard sebab2 kenaikan)

1. Kenaikan minyak masih rendah berbanding mana2 pun negara ASEAN.
2. Kerajaan akan pastikan kenaikan tidak membebankan
3. Kerajaan tidak mampu lagi menampung subsidi.
4. Pejabat Perdana Menteri juga berkata penjimatan kewangan yang dibuat
melalui kenaikan harga barangan petroleum kali ini akan digunakan
untuk membiayai projek-projek pembangunan dan mempertingkatkan sistem
pengangkutan awam demi kepentingan rakyat keseluruhannya. (Kenyataan
ini dipetik dari website BERNAMA mengenai kenaikan minyak berkuatkuasa
hari ini)

Tak guna berdebat2 dan komplen sebab inilah suratan yang terpaksa kita
telan. Apa lagi....amalkan perbelanjaan berhemah...itulah pesanan

P/S: Facts are fact.
