Failure to plan is to plan to fail. The Singapore’s Workers Party plan their strategy meticulously and executed their election campaigns well and they reap the tremendous rewards for their hard work. Likewise, in all things in life, if you do not plan for yourself, do not expect others to do so for you!
A lot of Singaporeans stay put till the early morning hours to catch the latest breaking news of the Singapore GE 2011 results via the Internet at the comfort of home. It’s a real contrast compare to the good old days where people gathered at the vote counting centers to wait for the announcement of the election results.
Well as usual the People’s Action Party retains the majority seats in the parliament. Thanks to the revolution in social media communication the main opposition party namely the Workers Party abbreviated WP was able to reach out to voters and in one way another turn the tide to contest and win a PAP stronghold constituency.
WP has made Singapore political history by winning the group representative constituency aka GRC seats of Aljunied. The rest of the opposition parties have also made considerable political inroad and progress in this contest even though they did not win any seats.
It would be another five years before the next GE and well in the mean time life move on as usual. Both the main ruling party and the opposition parties has a lot of soul searching to do with regards to how to win the hearts and minds of the voters for the next upcoming general election.
One of the biggest topics hotly debated during this election campaign was with regards to jobs and live hood of the citizens. Job competitions involving foreigners is a key emotional topic. Manufacturing industries are relocating elsewhere and will continue to do so. In fact I foresee company downsizing and relocation activities to accelerate.
Besides competition with foreign talents, age is another major factor. Most companies prefer to hire younger instead of older aging workers. We wouldn’t want to end up competing with younger less experience candidates but what choice do the older generations such as me have?
The start reality though is that unless we start to plan about our future, we are in for trouble. No government in the world is able to assists each and every one of its citizens. There are bound for some less fortunate and less prepared people to fall through the cracks unless we plan we may become on those hapless statistics.
Failure to plan is to plan to fail so to speak. Instead of waiting for the inevitable to happen, I guess I am better of exploring other opportunities, in particular Internet Marketing and online business.
There are plenty of opportunities to make money online. It makes me wonder why there are many well educated people who struggle for months and even years to feed their loved ones when they got retrench simply because they could not find another job that pays them like past jobs they had.
This is employer’s world. There are more supplies than demand so to speak. You don’t need to continue to live the rat race life. When you discover and master the blue print of online business success you wouldn’t give a second though of going back to work for other.
After all, why get a JOB (just over broke) and end up being too busy to make a living instead of building a financial retirement nest? Unless you belong to the top earners holding very high positions in organizations you work for, chances are that you are too busy working like a slave to make these bosses rich!
Home based business involving Internet marketing or any online business for that matter is very achievable and can reap much benefits and rewards. The start up capital requirement to do so is extremely affordable.
You can surely succeed in online business world if you have the right mindset, the tenacity and the will to succeed. Last but not least, you have to take actions and responsibilities to realize your dreams.
