Recently, I decided I want to make more money even though I’m earning a rather decent salary in Japan, so I did a google search on doing investment.
I’m not a high risk-taker, and my mind tends to switch off when it comes to investment. But I guess now, it is finally the time for me to learn how to invest.
So while googling search on making investments in Singapore, I came across a website, The Fifth Person. I read through the articles, and found out that one of the co-founders happened to be my secondary school acquaintance.
Speaking of which, I remember I used to do quite well back in secondary school, scoring As despite being in the NA (Normal Academic stream), while this acquaintance of mine was an average scorer.
So before I moved to Japan, I saw this acquaintance of mine while I was with my grandmother, shopping for the necessities that I can use in Japan. I didn’t know what this acquaintance of mine works as, and I assumed that he is just a normal salary worker from his fashion.
But after reading The Fifth Person site, I was totally wrong. He’s like even more successful than me while I’m still a salaried worker.
What I’m trying to say here that no doubt education is important, and you should study, but then study smart. I wasn’t studying smart, and I do regret some of my actions (e.g., listening to my brother’s advice and then jump straight into a course without checking). And maybe start some things earlier so I won’t regret in life. And do remember that certifications does not equate to what you will do in life!
Well, that’s about it! Just a 0.001 cents of my random musings.
