Have A Meaningful Christmas - Thursday in The STAR

Make Malaysia GREAT:
Think Big but Act Small.

Let us continue to discuss ways to Make Malaysia Great. During Deepavali, we deliberated on taking personal ownership. This Christmas, let us talk about why we need to think big but take small actions.

1.    Why think big?
It is important that we THINK BIG - to have a VISION. Envisioning creates new positive energy from however small a strength that we may have - our niche. It gives and renews hope. We can see a better future. Thinking Big inspires us to move forward. We aspire to be the best, the most and the greatest. It is a compass to work towards our utmost potentials.
2.    Why take small actions?
Without action Vision is a fantasy. Envisioning is not just about documentation but it needs serious persistent human executions. It is the small acts done consistently, effectively and efficiently over a period of time that translates vision into reality. At the organisational level, it is not enough to proudly parade lofty goals at lobbies and walkways but fall short to deliver the basics like good service with speed and accuracy, daily. At the personal level, big dreams without daily actions will make us a Mat Jenin.

3.    How to take small actions?
Ask what we can do TODAY! What small actions can we do NOW that will help us move towards the vision? Linking what we want to have in the future with what we need to do today is crucial. One cannot dream of success but be lazy and always wake up late for work. Organisations cannot launch Visions and Missions without being serious about daily performance and executions. But to execute today we must work within our capabilities and capacity. We must work with what we have, not what we dream of having.

At Zubedy, our programs and activities draw strength from our shared values and traditions. We believe that at heart, all Malaysians want good things for themselves and for their brother and sister Malaysians, simply because our nation cannot prosper as a whole if some of us are left behind.

You and I, we must think big, but act small to Make Malaysia GREAT.

Let us add value,
Have a meaningful Christmas.
