How time flies and it is my 2nd Anniversary since I had my heart by pass. Just thought of writing a few words in my blog as I know there are some of you who read my blog and recently I got a query from someone with regards to the by pass surgery. I said don't worry as everything will be fine. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Good Lord for his blessings and in giving me a second chance in life....THANK YOU

This morning I did my walk at a new surrounding i.e. about 350 km from Kuala Lumpur (I just love the sight and smell of the sea). I was in Danga Bay , Johor Bahru at my job site since Sunday night and back to KL this evening (Wednesday). The place is at the Southern tip of Malaysia, facing Singapore. I enjoyed my morning walk there and since I had my phone (HTC Desire) with me while walking, I took some pictures to share with you. I love the boats or yacht parked at Danga Bay. I bet it is a nice place to chill out in the evening overlooking the Bay with a nice drink and they have a seafood restaurant too, maybe I should check it out....

I know I'm unpopular on this point. But I owe you my truth: most people sleep more than they need to. They fall into the trap of spending some of the best hours of their lives on a mattress. They squander their potentially breathtaking gifts under the covers. They lose The Battle of The Bed. They trade their greatness for a snooze button.
Here's an insight I invite you to consider: sleep begets sleep. The more sleep you take, the more you need. Ever noticed that as you sleep more, you feel sleepier? Strange isn't it.
But it's true.
Yes, I get that sleep is essential to keep us bright and renewed and healthy. My fear is too much sleep. The kind that keeps great people small. The kind that minimizes high-potential lives. The kind that sucks the living out of human beings destined to shine (and you know who you are). Happens to a lot of us. Because we fall in love with a pillow.
Too much to do and too many great places to explore and too many Big Hairy Audacious Goals (thanks Jim Collins) to get to sleep too much. Life is for the living. I need to repeat that again: “life is for the living.” You and I have been given a gift today: to have the opportunity to make a difference and exercise our talents and have a brilliantly fun time doing it. And we need to seize (and respect) that gift.
So sleep less. Live more. And as Benjamin Franklin observed: “there will be plenty of time to sleep when you're dead.” (I've always liked that guy)
