How To Weather The Storm?

Everywhere i go and everybody i meet, the only topic occupying everyone's mind is about the economic uncertainty...and to be honest i'm not excluded...i just wish i could bump into someone who's talking about something more encouraging, something more refreshing, something more productive, something more something else u know what i mean?...

Anyway today i was fortunate enough to have a chat with someone that spoke about that something else...you see i often exchange knowledge, views, opinion and everything else under the sun with this person...hes considered as someone that i admire very much for the way he looks at things, for the way he value things and for the way he thinks about things....

So he suggested that i should get this book that he just read "A New Earth"...i cant remember who the author is but after listening to the way he expressed himself of how the book have changed the way he look at things (yet again)...i'm hitting the book store after work tmrw to get my hands on it...

I always believe all of us need some new dosage of knowledge in our lives from time to time and mine is due i think...

bro,

sometimes am too lazy to read books OR even newspaper, but lucky nowadays we are all connected with internet, thus i still force myself to google all current news..atleast!!

not to forget, the BML that inspired and gave me knowledge from someone like you..bravo!!

ketam said...

To weather the storm just pray to ALLAH and be like US joining the THESUN MOTOR HUNT this SUNDAY.. yeeeehaaaaaaaaa

The author is Eckhart Tolle. It is a heavy read but worth the read. all the best.

Anonymous said...

Yup .. the book was supposed to be life changing .. just like Eat Pray Love etc etc

Saw the reviews and comments on the Oprah last nite .. I was just thinking of getting the book myself .. who knows, it might change moi :D

akumangkok said...

Wooiitt
That book was recommended by Oprah is last night's show (repeat kot tak tau le)
Am planning to get a read too.

jadz said...

take care

ermm.. true.. recession is coming... but we don't have to panic.. Do what is wise. It is really time to take pro active steps to avoid a painful time in the next two years which is how long the recession is expected to last.

Suggestions:
1. Don't take any loans
2. Don't buy houses or properties with loans, or even cash.
3. Keep as much cash as possible.
4. Pay off as much of personal loans, private loans, as debt collection will be hastened.
5. Sell any stocks you can even at lower prices.
6. Take money off from Trust Funds.
7. Don't believe in huge sales forecast from customers, be extremely prudent, lowest inventories, reduce liabilities.
8. Don't invest in new capital.
9. If you are selling homes/ properties/ cars , do it now, when you can get good prices, they are going to fall.
10. Don't invest in new business proposals.
11. Cancel holiday plans using credit cards.
12. Don't change jobs, as companies will retrench based on 'last in first out'.
And last but not least, stay cool, wait, and if you took all of the above actions and more, you probably will be better off then many.

above tips I get verbally from my fren kat bank and tak lama, emails starts spreading the same content.. x salah kan kalau ikut.. lgpun, prevention is better than cure..

Dania805 said...

The book was highly recommended by Oprah since last season... Yes, a very complicated book bt life-changing. A must read to all. Literature je kena pkir betul2. Tips: sediakan highlighter/petanda pages...cos sm sentences are so powerful to think upon..njoy reading! Salam.

hye! what's up? long time didnt update ur blog.

Barackah said...

It's a refreshing change to see you writing about books. For once. You know it's tiring to read about you gushing about your wife.
I thought you promised your readers no talking about your missus.
I know you are brilliant But your wide reading Eckhart Tolle. Just can't believe it. Was she just posing for RTM? For her fans?

les.princesse said...

hey EE just stumbled upon ur blog today and I must say that I found your blog truly interesting, you have a knack in telling stories - making it sound so funny and all so true at the same time!

Dear Mr. Emran,

Mine is mxm659@yahoo.com. Please do email me for I have some questions to ask. Thank you Mr. Emran.

Ms Ulat Buku said...

It's by Eckhart Tolle, I think that's how you spell it nways. Apparently a really good book, had great reviews on Oprah as well. Its been on my bookshelf for ages, I need to start reading it too.

Dora said...

Eckhart Tolle.. bought and have never looked back since.

Oprah rocks big time i must say for her constant raves and the biggest online classroom held last year for her book club.

plus Jim Carrey read it too.. i was sold then. hah.

summer said...

Have read the book, it's by Eckhard Tolle. A bit heavy going but well worth reading. It offered new perspective for me rather than relying on status quo. Happy reading.

Intan said...

EE,we (yr BYL fans),really really missed u.Dont know whats wrong,but,we all hope that u can come back for the sake of real true blogging.I for one,had been enjoying yr intelligent, witty and sometimes angry writing.And we get an extra bonus in the forms of Erra and Junior as well.Do blog on real daily events that surrounds our beloved country like that of Rocky's Bru.Anything bro,cuz,we all missed u.U're one guy with lots of positive attitude.With our present political temperament now,we sure need more guys like u.

just wanna to remind u bro, don't make salty food a must in your diet kay! banyak dah dilihat, dengar dan dirasai, 'silent killer' in the making has something to do with hypertension. So watch your diets and your dear ones. start now before you reach the age 40. serious, nowadays heartattacks and diabetes are common!!! BTW belated birthdays to you and princess. Smooth delivery for my girl, GOD BLESS
