Of drivers and motivation.

You often wonder why folks behave the way they do. What drives them and why they behave inexplicably different from what you expect it them. You like to think that there is an element of commonality in human behaviour when it comes to certain things. Things like common sense and decency. Things involving ethics and moral behaviour. 


You would like to think that there is a baseline that people thread on and you can count on them to toe the line. 


You would like that very much. 


But the reality of it all is much different. We are all driven by different things. There's that element of unpredictability in each one of us that allows us to surprise people every now and then. The more we expect people to behave a certain way, the more likely it is for us to be surprised when they actually do the opposite. 


Maybe we shouldn't even bother. Let's just factor in all the uncertainties in life and just focus on what we can control. Yep. Let's just concentrate on our own action and behaviours and hope that by doing what we do we can start to influence those around us.

Saturdays are made for this.

My saturdays are all pre planned. and its packed. mostly its time spent with the kids. yeah it is pretty much dedicated for family. after spending the week slaving at the office, weekends should be all about spending quality time with the family. it doesn't mean that you have to make a big deal out of it nope. sometimes even the simplest of activities can mean a whole lot.

so here's to spending more time with our families eh.
