Lim Goh Tong's Story

After few days, Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong passed away, a friend of mine was having a book title "My Story, Lim Goh Ting" that certainly caught attention. Lim Goh Tong was an immigrant who came to Malaya with less than 150 US dollar (RM525) and eventually became one of the richest men in the country.

         What i want share with you all guys is 14 things that Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong teaches us in his book.

1) Never make language barrier a limitation to succeed.

2) Be polite, humble and respectful to others.

3) When it comes to appointment and meeting, have a habit to be punctual.

4) Live a disciplined, simple life.

5) Make effort to carry something that you can write or jot down when you have anything coming to mind.

6) . Be bold yet cautious.

7 ) Believe the power of conviction.

8) Don’t make enemies.

9) . If you build a successful business and organization, always believe that the most valuable asset of a company is its people.

10 ) . If you don’t have benefit and exposure to modern management, never doubt you can run a company as big as Microsoft.

11) Employ a person or make business with a person when you trust him or her.

12) Do good to others; you will be rewarded somehow.

13) Prepare for personality makeover.
And finally,

14 ) Be grateful for what you have.

There are many things that we can learn from someone like Tan Sri Lim Gog Tong. Hopefully, we all can learn these 14 things from him, so that we can improved our lives and life a better live eventually.

It’s quite impossible to see someone who does not know anything about laptop nowadays. Could you imagine the first kind of laptop (notebook) in the world? Let’s compare among the first laptop introduced, that is Compaq LTE 286 (1989) and the latest model of Compaq, Compaq Presario V6735B.

Compaq LTE 286 was introduced in 1989. The processor is LTE 9.55 MHz Intel 8086. The memory is 640 KiB base RAM while it’s hard disk is just 20 MB (roughly just memory of 4 mp3s). It using 1.44 MB floppy drive (floppy disk generally not in use nowadays). LTE 286 is using Backlit grayscale CGA 640 x 200 display (80/40 x 25 lines, 4 shades of gray) with separate CGA video output. For available ports, this Compaq edition does not has USB ports. It has internal modem of 2400 bit/s Hayes and doesn’t have wireless feature . The screen is relatively smaller than the latest compaq edition. For other hardware, this laptop ( or rather called note book ) does not have webcam and much advance features like finger print reader and sound system.

Compaq Presario V6735B just introduced in 2008. While Compaq Presario V6735B has processor of AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core Mobile Processor RM-70 (2.0 GHz, 1 MB L2 cache). Mean while, the standard memory is 2 GB and is upgradeable up to 4GB RAM. It has very huge space of hard disk of 120 GB. This laptop come with DVD-ROM but without floppy disk as floppy disk no longer in usage. For the audio and video, this Compaq using ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics, 512MB. It also has USB ports and Express Card Slot. It has built in modem of Broadcom 802.11a/b/g/draft-n and Broadcom 802.11b/g which is can use wireless. This Compaq has bigger screen compared to his godfather and has higher screen resolution. For other hardware, this laptop does have webcam, card reader, and finger print reader.

The technology is improved rapidly since the the among the first edition of note book introduced into the market. Obviously, the new edition of Compaq is much more better than the first one with it’s specification. But, the technolgy will rapidly expand and more new models will introduced into market.

I recently read a story titled : ONE THOUSAND DOORS

The lesson of the of the story is very much related to my life and i guess others' as well.

The lesson is "Don't let people treat you like a door, they'll walk right through you."

Because that's how I feel when I've been used. It's like my friendship was nothing but a door. A door in my soul that somebody just walked right through to get to a better place in their life. But once they were through, so was our friendship. And i just realised this when i read this story. And hopefully, the friends that i having now will be true friendship and it will unpratical to say hopefully this friendship will be ever lasting one. But for sure, i am glad and happy with my friends that i ama having one. And, they are one of best that i ever had. Thanks my friends.
