Dear Taichung Happiers,

If you could do everything, what would you like to do?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXzVTy_ojek

“Life doesn’t give us purpose. We give life purpose.” Purpose. Bill Gates can give us an encouraging nod; nevertheless, he reminds us that finding the right goal and the right metric for tracking one's progress is surprisingly difficult. That’s why this topic will definitely make us hear our heartbeat fill our eardrums. Happiness is the invisible yet invaluable key to success; happiness is closing the gap between what we want to be and how we are behaving. What drives the Slash Sea wild? Dr. Stewart D. Friedman, a professor at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania argues that “Accomplishment in one’s career or public life comes not so much at the expense of the other parts, but rather be because of the commitments that you have to the different parts of your life.” What is pulling you miles miles away from your dream lives? What do you want to achieve next? What is the unstoppable force in your heart? Those who having a clear vision, challenging themselves to change, and finding the voice to elevate others always stand out in our minds with cheerful calm and consequential contribution. In this way, before diving into the Slash Sea, re-think about what we really desire/expect, and what kind of energy we really need. Let’s inspire and support each other. Welcome to join us in defining and redefining our uniqueness, re-setting the GPS: where we are now and where we’re going.

“Sometimes you got to run before you can walk.” Because of technology development and the multi-dimensions of business ecosystems, the world has become more and more disruptive. “The key to job searching is looking inside yourself. It's all about the inner view.” We have no options but disturbing the silence of the status quo. Classical Greek philosopher Socrates (c. 470 – 399 BC) correctly clarified, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” Learning is the river carrying the waves of enhancement and innovation--days and days stream by, drawing us along in the current--every wave glitters remarkably and radiantly. Researchers suggest us to swim against the currents of competition with the learning maps of challenging long-held assumptions, remaining present and engaged, developing strong self-awareness, taking “progressive risk”, and being open to experience.
https://hbr.org/2015/06/improve-your-ability-to-learn No matter how advanced we’ve become, there’s still tremendous pressure for us to compete and succeed. What propels us with the motivation to continue learning is the curiosity, which increases the space between what we currently know and what we want to know. Therefore, deliberately make opportunities to discover more streams flowing beneath every forest to learn more. Who is the best motivation speaker? Look into the mirror. https://www.inc.com/julian-hayes-ii/5-ways-to-stay-motivated-when-you-feel-like-giving-up.html Create a learning culture wherever you stay to be more critical, flexible, and adaptable. Have you ever imagined working for a learning organization like Pixar? How will you disrupt yourself if you work for Pixar? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOjJLj1m1u0

“When you decide not to be afraid, you can find friends in super unexpected places.” Yes. Be a "super connector". A super connector creates a system, where we feel more comfortable and confident. “The pilot was a loner but even for him flying a drone was just too remote.” Connecting is not only for receiving any resources in return—it’s to influence more people, to inspire more people to feel good, and to impact further on positive culture—the network of supporters built in our place can create ripples elsewhere. No worries. The ripples will command attention of a bigger world. Seize every opportunity to extend ourselves in a new way. Join a powerful organization to hang out with right people we need. https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/247896 Before seeking for the network to open our hearts and change our perspective, make sure that our relationship with ourselves has entered a new and better stage. Enforce acceptance, instead of control—notice and experience your ideas and emotions with open-mindedness. Boost emotional intelligence to be a super connector for a fulfilled life, personally and professionally. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDQ1Mi5I4rg If you lack a support group, create it. Surround yourself with more people who will push you to dream bigger and share more. Recognize and respect the power of sharing; the power of sharing is the power of creating; quality connections can dramatically deepen our influence and integrity! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qaSUeVFpzI

“Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words: ‘With great power comes great responsibility.’ This is my gift.” What makes us succeed doesn’t guarantee our fulfillment; our fulfillment stems from our gifts. “I love being a maze designer. I get completely lost in my work.” To feel more alive and meaningful, nothing can be more intriguing and inspiring than figuring out our life passion/purpose and where we are going next. Never compromise the unwillingness to waste time on fighting for what is not ours, nor to lose ourselves in others’ dreams. Are you investing time and skills in the right career? https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2014/nov/11/-sp-questionnaire-what-job-would-make-you-happiest To unleash possibilities, to prevent the dark side from clouding everything, we need to find meaning and value at every life stage. Meaning and value. Having a clear vision is like planting a garden. It must be tended and nurtured and fed, the color will soon drain from our faces otherwise. Love and respect teach us to design the multi-dimensional graphic of this vision garden. Patience and care string the branches up against the sky. We have an eye. We see things. The confusion of a clear picture for future possibilities is like everyone’s aesthetic sensibilities lost and found. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVx6ntr5OqI Einstein once suggested “Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.” So, how to make meanings and prove the work you do matters, to you, and, to others? What difference it makes? When you don’t know how to make decisions, think about what you want to be. Most importantly, please bear in mind that intangible vision can wink broadly at us. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2M733Yp934&app=desktop

From “Before you knew you owned it” (by Alice Walker)

Wish for nothing larger
Than your own small heart
Or greater than a star;
Tame wild disappointment
With caress unmoved and cold
Make of it a parka
For your soul.

Discover the reason why
So tiny human midget
Exists at all
So scared unwise
But expect nothing.
Live frugally
On surprise.


“Listen, smile, agree, and then do whatever you were gonna do anyway.” Are you ready? Are you ready to see the flowers in our vision garden choreographing their blooms to the ripple sound of connection? Are you ready to see the light of our fulfillment sway like the stars floating above our learning rivers? We can’t really give people anything until we improve ourselves. Dreams should be felt in the gut. Dreams should be big enough to scare us. Dreams should be wild enough to take our breath away. However, what we passionately pursue is not a picture-perfect career. Focus on the present, and the next door will open. Dream big. Leave a legacy. Give your gift to the world. Again, let us dance on our heartbeats together, shall we? Your passion will spark our passion. Your strength our strength. Join us. Thanks!!!
