A New Plan

I am now in my second week of my so called retirement. Aku gelak sakan minggu lepas kat orang yang kena pergi kerja. But actually the laugh is really on me. At the end of the day, those who are working will have a pay check at the end of the month. Me? Who is going to give me the paycheck? Nobody. No more employer to credit my monthly pay into the bank anymore. Scary right.
But then, kerja rumah tak pernah habis. Nak buka blog baca komen, or tulis entry baru pun tak sempat. Mana lah pulak nak baca blog orang atau nak berchatting. Sorry lah kalau ada orang yang dok tanya khabar aku kat YM. Dah dua minggu dah aku tak buka YM pun.
Why am I so busy? Well, besides the house work which never seems to finish, my weekends now are filled with a new project. I have taken an entrepreneural course for the 8 weeks. Konon-konon nak jadi usahawan lah ni. So every Friday I have to start my journey, over the weekend I attend the classes and I will be boarding the bus home on Sunday evening. Will reach home early Monday morning and will be dead tired by then. I have not boarded a bus for a long long time and I had mix feeling on my first journey.
What class and where? I will reserve the detail in the future entries. I still have a long way to go. Will not "graduate" until end May. It is an options that we are trying to see if it can be done to supplement our income. It will be hard work and it is not a short term plan in this case. InsyaAllah, with hidayah and berkah from the Almighty we may be starting something new. Nothing big but something which may be suitable for me and the lifestyle I have in mind, which is working from home.
I am taking this course is totally because I am such a newby in this field. I know nothing on how to become a businessperson. The networking amongst the participants is great and very inspiring since many of them have already started their business and yet they are there to find new opportunities.
Actually, I don't really want to post this yet because it is still too new and I was scared that some people would say that " eleh AN tu belum apa-apa dah tulis kat blog. Entah jadi entah tidak tu, hangat-hangat tahi ayam je tu" I hope that negative thoughts are not amongst those who are coming here. What we all need is, the encouragement and motivation to spur us to greater heights. Knowledge is never wasted, you don't have to be too old to change and start something new in your lives. Everything else can be taken away from you, your wealth, youth, but not the knowlwedge that you have.
Wish me luck OK?

Hello AN,
I thought you can outlast me on the ASTROlogy and lepak, O.K 2 weeks.. you still beat me!

So learning some old tricks with the buses huh..I do understand that..spend 3 months in Singapore in 97..to commute by bus in Penang..tough life!

Start something simple..let it grow..you will enjoy it!

Have faith in what you do..insyallah it will come out fine.

AuntyN, kalau cerita kat blog pun apa salahnya sebab may be ada yang dah jadi usahawan dan boleh share pengalaman etc

ety said...

Salam N,
Insyallah!...ME do'akan semoga berjaya.

AuntyN, semoga successful in the new venture... kadang2 tu bila dah bebas dari ikatan makan gaji, baru terbuka mata nampak peluang2 yang lebih besar...tapi perlu banyak sabau & usaha....

AuntyN said...

En Ari : I am not much of a fan of ASTROlogy actually. With so much work, no time to watch TV.
Yes, now re-learning to take the bus hehehe. Nasib dah tua tak ada dah yang nak tackle... :-).
Thanks for the good words.

ahni : That's what I have in mind to share, tapi kadang2 tu malu jugak sebab takut orang cakap kita ni asyik nak menunjuk2. Tapi kalau dah start mula nampak ada hasil tu AN akan try bagi pandangan sikit2 supaya kalau ada sapa2 yang nak mencorak langkah ke arah itu boleh ambik panduan.

ety : Thanks so much!!! Aminnn harap makbul doa tu. :-)

uncle : Mana lama tak nampak? Betul tu, la ni baru dok nampak dunia yang lebih luas tu hehe

Perhaps the tender, maternal phentermine fingers of my wife soothed his weary head with the conviction that he felt the hand of his mother playing with the long hair of her boy in the soft West Indian morning.. Buller; I want no more sailing after a horse, and, besides, we can't go on the lake with that boat; she has been battered about so much that she must have opened a acyclovir dozen seams.. Indeed, the fading of memories and the klonopin flagging of affects, which we are apt to take as self-evident and to explain as a primary influence of time on the psychic memories, are in reality secondary changes brought about by painstaking work..
