It was my iphone-me-time when I encountered masterclass commercial on youtube. This time, it was not Gordon Ramsay. She was actually a rather old and peculiar woman, offering online class on being a writer. And she took my attention greatly. She said, if I thought I was a writer, maybe I am. Interesting.

One video leads to another, I ended up listening to Malcolm Gladwell’s top ten rules for success. He is, of course, my favourite writer, need to be noted. While, I ended up on number 4, I managed to turn on my laptop and start writing this blogpost.

Malcolm Gladwell’s top ten rules for success. They include:

  1. Have the courage to pursue your idea.
  2. Try a new approach.
  3. Believe in meaningful work.
  4. Constantly revise your conclusions.
  5. Distinguish yourself from others.
  6. Practice.
  7. Explore.
  8. Be patient.
  9. Understand the rules of business.
  10. Outwork others.

  3. My BEHAVIOUR, I can be cool and collected even when I am about to explode. I use kind gestures, encouraging expressions, and positive words to most people around me. I know my way around people. I read Malcolm Gladwell’s books.

But right now, I tell you, I treasure something rather different. And it’s totally true what they said, where your treasure is, your heart is.
