The Sabo of Me

I read this article yesterday and it got me thinking. A lot of my missed opportunities in the past were due to this line of thinking.

In the guise of thinking things over from all angles, pretty soon you would arrive at a conclusion of not pursuing / doing anything. And then, lo and behold, somebody does it, you berate yourself for not doing it, feeling down, letting the event affect your psyche.

In the end, you are scared of trying / doing anything new and challenging as you prefer to be on the safe side.

I am currently reading the book on the founder of Genting, Lim Goh Tong. Quite a good read as he tells his life story. Actually, I have noticed this book eons ago, but since his death, I told myself to get his book and read it. It is a good book and it is full of honest to goodness stuff of inspiration. Wonder if other Malaysian tycoons would come out with something similar ? I would love to read about Ananda Krishnan and Mokhtar AlBukhary.
