What a lovely Sunday! Blue sky, sunshine, wind breeze – I could only enjoy at the balcony of my home, without wearing a mask.
Having been working from home for almost 2 months, the plan for Q1 was not executed in full as scheduled. It is high time to come up with a revised, realistic plan, if we are still keen to meet the annual targets. The challenges remain though with the uncertainly of how long the impacts of the virus outbreak is going to last. Who knows, anyway!?
Of course, I don’t have a crystal ball. But I do have a compass of Chinese astrology, though. Surprise? Staring at the luopan left on my desktop, I went into a deep thinking, recalling a conversation with a Feng Shui master not too long ago. He mentioned about our entering into the so-called “9th Era” (Year 2024-2043) in the 180-year cycle. “What is the next big thing for the next 20 years, I asked. The Feng Shui master replied, “Our time will be migrating from the “Era of Land” to the “Era of Fire”. According to the five-element philosophy, we shall keep an eye on the sectors that can potentially be benefited from fire.” Below are sectors he mentioned:
- high-tech, networks, information and communication,
- oil extraction,
- electricity, natural gas,
- solar energy,
- heart and eye technology
Are you involved in any of these industries? I think it may be time for me to downsize some of the businesses that are not on the list, and, develop those which are?
