A refresher....a reminder.

Went blog surfing and read some of the older post posted at other places.

...when you can't wait for the end of the day. I just wanna pack up and go. Call it a day. But alas, meetings are holding me back. Not to say the least, I have tons of items to follow-up in my 'To-Do' list.Wince.

I kinda remembered an article (actually taken from The Straits Times but I can't find it anymore) I've read quite sometime ago. Made me re-think about what/who really matters.I'm sure the world still remembers Eugene O'Kelly. He passed away on Sept 10, 2005, and that's just ~1 year ago from my blog entry. He was the CEO of KPMG at 53, one of the largest US accounting firms. Only had lunch twice with his wife in his 12 years there.He died.

Ka-put.And the world moved on.

Give it another 5 years and I doubt people even bothered if a CEO named Eugene O'Kelly ever existed. That's the sad side of life - each passing day is a fleeting moment.

We are bustling ourselves with things that don't really matter, and spending most of our time with people who don't really care.Sad. Very sad.His memories will be treasured by his loved ones. People who really matter to him.

He became wise towards his final moments. Can I?Life. Memories. Loved ones. Treasures

This is a good post. Good reminder to me.
