Everybody has plans. Either its a next day, next week, next year plans; or maybe after reading this, you’ll already know what to do. The problem with planning is; fundamentally as it is, it is based on what you want to do. We don’t plan what we don’t what to do.
Organisations has these things called SOP. Standard operating procedures. It’s a nifty little concept. The management or a dedicated unit identifies what the organization want and plans to do. And documents it. But the best part is, they also plan what if the things they don’t want to do, happens. If a machine broke down, who to call. If it came out red instead of blue, whats the rectification process. If plan A fails, fallback to plan B.
And it hit me last month. I don’t have my personal SOP. Well I planned my life, and i believe it is going very well. Until i went to a doctor for a coughing sickness that bugged me for 3 weeks and presented with a prognosis of cancer.
You see, I’m a happy going man. Finished my SPM at a full boarding school in the top quarter, over stayed my university terms but completed my pure physics degree and got my dream job as a salesman at a top local IT company. 6 years later, im a 30-year-old man with a better job, a house overlooking a lake, a 100k car, a wife with 2 beautiful daughters, a bibik and lots of debt. And i am content and happy.
This blog shall be like a journal to store my ideas, ramblings, thoughts, and my experience during fighting cancer. It may sound very relaxing at first, but let us see how my mode of writing goes as my treatment undergoes. I plan to make an ebook out of my notes here, and if I would put it as a blog, it would be a work in progress, until I believe I’m cured. And if I dont, you still get to see whats up to it, like the MJ This IS IT video then. 🙂
