Happy New Year! 2012 has finally arrived.

“Forgive” what you have not done and what didn’t take place or even what could have been done better. Never ever feel sorry and move on…

Beating yourself up only made you weaker bur never made life any easier (or any harder).

You can always start again or continue from where you have left behind and committed to COMPLETE what you so desired.

Here’s a thought, your new year resolution could be a list of things that you wish to stop doing; that will immediately allows you to allocate better resources to fulfil the real commitments that you heart wanted.

There could be thousands of reasons to explain the way things are at the moment but the truth is that the world does not need another one and; more importantly YOU don’t need another reason. It’s strange to think that you will be better off just because you can explain. The fact remains that you have not change anything no matter how well you can explain why not.

For that, I choose not to apologise for not writing of any ‘DO’ for the entire Q4 of 2011. I am committed to resume this journey of sharing in the wake of 2012 and moving forward. That’s RIGHT!

Enter the Dragon!


Gong Xi Fa CA’i to all that celebrate the Lunar New Year of the Water Dragon (Green of CA!).

May you be as “KICKASS” as the Legendary Bruce Lee in taking on any challenges before you!

Chur Associates® will be closed from 23 January 2012 as will be returning as lively as the Dragons to serve you with our signature services on 30 January 2012.

CAtizens work HARD and play HARD! That’s RIGHT!
