My New Year Resolution for 2018

It is the time of the year again for us to review our year-long achievements, make our life plans and also financial goals in 2018. There are a lot of achievements for me to be proud of in 2017, however I can’t manage to tell every individual success in this post – will do only if I have time. Before we bid adieu to year 2017, let me share with you my own plan for 2018.

My Plan for 2018

1. Make a Career Change

If you no longer can find the passion to make a positive difference, even after doing your best, perhaps you are in the wrong field. It’s fine to start over or start again as long as you have thought through it thoroughly. Some of us who are lucky, find ourselves very early in life. You know exactly what you want in life and you know how to go get it. Those who are said to be unlucky are the ones who are always searching.

There’s no guarantee that it won’t fail. All I need is work hard, keep trying and tweaking over time. Get a resume makeover. Think of best answers to give for though interview questions. Employers are often very specific about the skills and experience they are seeking. They prefer to recruit someone who has a proven track record in their sector, which can make it tough to make changes in career path. To improve the chances of job success, it’s important to identify strengths and match them where possible to the needs of potential employers.

It’s rare to find a job immediately. We need to be financially and psychologically important to prepare for a job search that could take a few months longer. However, I will set myself a realistic time frame and do everything I can to stay positive. A career is like a marathon. You have to set realistic goals to know “what” you need to do to get to “where” you want to be.

My New Year’s Resolutions for 2017 (Part 2)

My New Year’s Resolutions are yearly goals that I set for myself at the beginning of a new year. They usually have to do with fitness, investment, skills upgrading, and so forth.

My Plan for 2017

 travel-overseas
Travel Abroad: Traveling is refreshing and rejuvenating. Spending holiday on your local trip might achieve the same result. However, traveling overseas helps you to escape the routine of your life, which leaves you with no other choice than to forget the stresses of home.

I noticed that traveling is something that I’m passionate about and I wanted more of it in my life. I made goals for 2017 to travel more, to gain new experiences and seek out any opportunity I could possibly find.

I love seeing the world to experience different cultures. The places that I will travel next year are.
1. Siem Reap, Cambodia (that one I’ll be ticking off in January),
2. Hangzhou, China
3. Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

My New Year’s Resolution for 2016 (Part 2)

What are my plans for 2016?

1. Keep Career Goals On Track

career-goals

My career resolution is to work smarter, not harder.  Moving to the next level of my career within the next 3 years will be my ultimate goal. My current strategy is to break larger goals into manageable tasks. A large goal can seem quite difficult and impossible to achieve, but if you break it into smaller tasks that will eventually add up to achieving your career goal. Also, I need to be different from others and provide something different.

It is not a sprint but a marathon, which requires commitment and perseverance to make our life better.

I Am Officially an MBA Graduate!

Finally! It is official… I am an MBA graduate. My 3-year adventure has come to an end.

Throughout the course of my MBA at WOU, I met a lot of amazing people, and learnt both business and life experiences. All of this has led me to achieve my ultimate goal: to plan for a great future.

When I was in the middle of the MBA process, I already had a firm post-MBA plan in mind. During that time, I have worked very hard and spent a lot of time in achieving this milestone.

Why get an MBA?

A common question that people ask is, “why do you want to get an MBA?

Will GST Exemption Lower the Property Prices?

The expectation is quite high that an increase in the Real Property Gains Tax (RPGT) and an abolition of the developer interest bearing scheme (DIBS) will dampen the property market. But, there has been little attention on our government’s move to exempt residential properties from the Goods and Services Tax (GST), which is going to replace the current Sales and Service Tax (SST) effective from April 2015.

Do you think the prices will drop or remain unchanged? To me, it is very unlikely. Why? First, there is a need to understand GST and the supplies that come under it. As for exempt supplies, the category in which the residential properties have been placed are not subject to GST. So, businesses providing exempt supplies cannot charge GST on the final product to their consumers. However, those developers who are not eligible to claim input tax from the government on GST paid will then be saddled with additional costs due to the 6% of GST which is payable on almost all its inputs such as construction cost, services, building materials, etc cannot be claimed from the government. Being business entities, they will most probably pass on the non-claimable tax to the consumer end.
