Public Speaking Is The Most Important Skill – ShianG KeR

Rumor Research says that many people fear public speaking more than death. To me it’s a rumor, why? Dead people can’t tell us which one is scarier right? Okay I notice this line is a little offensive. Take it as a joke please. Warren Buffett mentioned before this is the most important skill, I agree in many ways. If we master public speaking: we can communicate our message better we are perceived as a stronger leader we can…

If We Know How To Face Death, We Know How To Live – ShianG KeR

Why A Sabbatical Is Good For Growth

In 1881, a German guy named Otto, he came out with a radical idea during that era – why don’t we all stop working at some point, and just enjoy life (plus government funded pension)? The idea was crazy because back then people simply did not retire, they worked till they died. Hence in modern history, German government is the first to create retirement system. I’m not a crazy German and I don’t have the shocked-by-electricity hairstyle, but I do have…
