90/10 principle.. This is incredible

The 90/10 Principle by Steven covey. Have you read this before? I had taken this from a email that one of my friend send to me... If you haven't read about it yet, I hope you like it and also share with ur other friends.. This is a great article and I would like to share it with you guys...

Discover the 90/10 Principle. It will change your life (at least the way you react to situations). What is this principle?

10% of life is made up of what happens to you. 90% of life is decided by how you react. What does this mean?

We really have no control over 10% of what happens to us. We cannot stop the car from breaking down. The plane will be late arriving, which throws our whole schedule off. A driver may cut us off in traffic. We have no control over this 10%. The other 90% is different. You determine the other 90%.

How? By your reaction. You cannot control a red light. However, you can control your reaction. Do not let people fool you; YOU can control how you react.

Let us use an example: You are eating breakfast with your family. Your daughter knocks over a cup of coffee onto your business shirt. You have no control over what just happened. What happens next will be determined by how you react. You curse. You harshly scold your daughter for knocking the cup over.

She breaks down in tears. After scolding her, you turn to your spouse and criticize her for placing the cup too close to the edge of the table. A short verbal battle follows. You storm upstairs and change your shirt. Back downstairs, you find your daughter has been too busy crying to finish breakfast and get ready for school. She misses the bus. Your spouse must leave immediately for work.

You rush to the car and drive your daughter to school. Because you are late, you drive 40 miles an hour in a 30 mph speed limit zone. After a 15-minute delay and throwing $60 traffic fine away, you arrive at school. Your daughter runs into the building without saying goodbye. After arriving at the office 20 minutes late, you find you forgot your briefcase. Your day has started terrible. As it continues, it seems to get worse and worse. You look forward to coming home, When you arrive home, you find small wedge in your relationship with your spouse and daughter.

Why? Because of how you reacted in the morning. Why did you have a bad day?
A. Did the coffee cause it?
B. Did your daughter cause it?
C. Did the policeman cause it?
D. Did you cause it?

The answer is “D”.

You had no control over what happened with the coffee. How you reacted in those 5 seconds is what caused your bad day. Here is what could have and should have happened.

Coffee splashes over you. Your daughter is about to cry. You gently say, “Its ok honey, you just need to be more careful next time”. Grabbing a towel, you rush upstairs. After grabbing a new shirt and your briefcase, you come back down in time to look through the window and see your child getting on the bus. She turns and waves. You arrive 5 minutes early and cheerfully greet the staff. Your boss comments on how good the day you are having.

Notice the difference?

Two different scenarios. Both started the same. Both ended different.

Why? Because of how you REACTED.

You really do not have any control over 10% of what happens. The other 90% was determined by your reaction.

Here are some ways to apply the 90/10 principle.

If someone says something negative about you, do not be a sponge. Let the attack roll off like water on glass. You do not have to let the negative comment affect you! React properly and it will not ruin your day. A wrong reaction could result in losing a friend, being fired, getting stressed out etc.

How do you react if someone cuts you off in traffic?

* Do you lose your temper?
* Pound on the steering wheel? A friend of mine had the steering wheel fall Off
* Do you curse?
* Does your blood pressure skyrocket?
* Do you try to bump them?

WHO CARES if you arrive ten seconds later at work? Why let the cars ruin your drive. Remember the 90/10 principle, and do not worry about it.

You are told you lost your job. Why lose sleep and get irritated? It will work out. Use your worrying energy and time into finding another job.

The plane is late; it is going to mangle your schedule for the day. Why take out your frustration on the flight attendant? She has no control over what is going on. Use your time to study, get to know the other passenger.

Why stressed out? It will just make things worse. Now you know the 90-10 principle. Apply it and you will be amazed at the results. You will lose nothing if you try it.

The 90-10 principle is incredible. Very few know and apply this principle.

The result? Millions of people are suffering from undeserved stress, trials, problems and heartache.

We all must understand and apply the 90/10 principle.

It CAN change your life!

Thomas Cup

So the journey of our malaysian badminton team in the Thomas cup had ended. The semi- finals against China was today and the team lost to China 3-0. Chong Wei lost to Lin Dan 17-21,8-21. Koo Kean Keat/Tan Boon Heong lost to Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng 15-21, 10-21 and Wong Choong Han lost to Chen Jin 21-16, 21-7. So the Thomas Cup Finals this Sunday will be China and Indonesia.. OH WELL... Malaysia lost. We have to accept the fact that China is still way too strong... I guess the turning point was the Japan game.. If they have won, they might not meet China till the finals.. =) anyways, congrats for trying their best even they have lost... =) Hopefully in 2 years time, we are able to give a better fight and win the cup.. hehehe

Didn't really get to watch the full matches especially the first singles and doubles. this time around, coz I finished work late.. However, i did watch the other matches.. But is annoying as even though TV1 show live for the Thomas Cup but they stop for 40 mins for the news even when Malaysia team is playing.. Even during the quarter final against Denmark. Today the Semi-Finals against China, they stop again for 40 mins.. Can't they just continue to show live especially when is a big match that many wants to watch but do not have astro at home.. Issshh.. That is something that make me angry.. Hahaha.. Oh well... At least they still show the match for us to watch lah.. Still better not nothing..

That's it for now.. Will be watching the Finals this Sunday.. Who do you guys think will win.. I bet most will say is China.. Hahahaha
