When I fly in my dreams I am the absolute WORST. I hit walls. I skid off buildings. On a bad night, I overshoot entire planets. But still I go to sleep hoping to soar.


Totally unrelated to this photo, but today I spent a long and wonderful time with my boss, Sir PK, who’ve just arrived from the U.S., but didn’t bother his jet lag, and chose to spend a fine afternoon over an extra hot cup of coffee with me.

We’ve spent five long hours discussing corporate, while teaching me strategies on how to handle my business dealings in their absence (Sir Rajeev and him), while managing our operations here in the Philippines.  It takes a lot of courage and a deep sense of pride to see myself sitting next to the owner of the company that I work for, who has proven so much during his entire career through his achievements, and I am humbled.  We’ve met couple of clients in the afternoon and taught me business relations on a different level.  It was awesome!

Well, I am not here to basically share corporate discipline and strategies.  (I bet you know them better than me.)  But among all the good things that he have taught me today, one thing stroke me the most.  He said, “You see in our business dealings, many times we were cheated and fooled by other businessmen, but we did not stop trusting blindly.  You should not stop trusting people AJ, and see the good in them.  You gain the business or not, you work on gaining friendship.  That’s how you grow your network.  You should never stop trusting blindly, same goes with your personal life, if at some point, during your close encounters with other people, and they hurt you, it should not teach you to close your heart.”
