“I will never stop learning. I won’t just work on things that are assigned to me. I know there’s no such thing as a status quo.

I will build our business sustainably through passionate and loyal customers.

I will never pass up an opportunity to help out a colleague, and I’ll remember the days before I knew everything.

I am more motivated by impact than money, and I know that Open Source is one of the most powerful ideas of our generation.

I will communicate as much as possible, because it’s the oxygen of a distributed company.

I am in a marathon, not a sprint, and no matter how far away the goal is, the only way to get there is by putting one foot in front of another every day. Given time, there is no problem that’s insurmountable.”

heart tugger… made my eyes sweat, really.  Reminds me so much of my dad. Sigh. 96 years old. There’s just something right about the good old days. Wish I could head on out and check the king instruments at Guitar Center and grab a new set of strings for the guitar my kids got for me during redemption Sunday. Relive the good times all over again.

Let’s see what you’ve got 🙂


IG mode… Success! Not exactly my first IG post but my first IG to WP migration. Cool beans, yeah! Thanks to my niece-y for this. #gwayzie love 🙂

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. Actually, it’s been a long, long, while. Life’s been a bit busy and time a luxury. The flurry of activities can somehow rob you of the preciousness of silence. You can never put a price tag on a minute of quietness – not even for a gold coin even if someone offered you one. I’m thankful I have more than a few minutes right now. Truly, not all that glitters is gold.
