Done with the book Becoming A Person Of Influence, I loaned another 2 books from the library; Positive Action Plan by Napoleon Hill and Winning With People by John Maxwell.

Just got home a couple of minutes earlier, had a bowl of soup and bathed.

Momo was sleeping on the floor outside when I came out of the bathroom. I got a shock, how come she can end up lying on the floor hugging her pillow. Now momo is very much grown up. She is not that simple minded lass as she used to be one year ago. Now you want to trick her, not so easy. Talking about momo, I haven't been taking pics for her quite some time already. Also no video clips of her too.

Am I a bad daddy?

Just some sharing from the book Becoming A Person of Influence,

The least important word: I.
The most important word: We.
The two most important words: Thank you.
The three most important words: All is forgiven.
The four most important words: What is your opinion?
The five most important words: You did a good job.
The six most important words: I want to understand you better.

Paradoxical Commandments of Leadership
People are illogical, unreasonable and self-centered - love then anyway
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives - do good anyway
If you're successful, you'll win false friends and true enemies - succeed anyway
The good you do today will perhaps be forgotten tomorrow - do good anyway
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable - be honest and frank anyway
The biggest man with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest man with the smallest idea - think big anyway
People favour underdogs but follow only hot dogs - fight for the few underdogs anyway
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight - build anyway
People really need help but may attack you if you help them - help them anyway
Give the world the best that you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth - give the world the best you have anyway.
