Lessons from the (Canyon) Woods

You may be physically present but your mind, heart and spirit could be elsewhere.

The difference between a friend and a fiend is the letter “r” which stands for respect.

Don’t be afraid to ask.

If you are unhappy, quit.

Don’t work for an organization you don’t believe in.

The most difficult teachers are the best teachers because they try to take you out of your comfort zone.

Don’t offer unsolicited advice. Just listen.

Embrace change.

Have a reason to wake up every morning.

You can choose your friends but you can’t choose your colleagues. Learn to co-exist.

Learn to empathize.

Don’t backbite the hands that feed you.

It’s not the differences that divide a group but their judgment about each other.

Lack of effective communication is often the root cause of misunderstanding.

Don’t let the past hostage the future.

There’s a big difference between “loving a person” and “loving your idea of that person”.

Every experience, every heartbreak as long as processed will not come into waste.

Remember Newton’s third law of motion: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Kaya don’t rush at baka mabangga sa glass window. Nakakahiyang tumilapon.

Follow your dreams.

But for now, my dream of owning a home (which costs more than P12 million) at Canyon Woods seems a wishful thinking hehe.
