When Philip Yancey, one of my favorite layman theologians and writers, was confronted with the same question, he wrote:
"I became a writer, I believe, because of my own experience of the power of words. I saw that spoiled words, their original meaning wrung out, could be reclaimed. I saw that writing could penetrate into the crevices, bringing spiritual oxygen to people trapped in airtight boxes."It was a very noble purpose. How I wish I could have the same purpose (writing skills or gifts as well) like Yancey. But I don’t.
However, here, I will try my best to write and blog to live, to enliven, and give a sense and meaning to what is happening around me. Sometimes, (maybe more often) I will falter along the way and lose sight of this purpose. And I may get sidetracked with monetary rewards in exchange. Who is not?
I want to inspire, to motivate, to instruct, and share worthwhile information or thoughts. Air my opinion, failures, successes, and confessions. Occasionally, I will throw in some rants. Sometimes I will sound witty, sometimes dumb –I don’t care. This is my expression.
Welcome to 'my sense and sensibility, including my non-senses' . I am NOR, and I am just trying my best to make sense here -please forgive my 'non-senses' should you encounter them here more often. By the way, did I tell you that this is my "about page"? Yeah, it is. :P
Other than blogging (I used to be a professional blogger between 2006 and 2009 and sold one of my blogs a good sum-enough to buy a new car), I am a Management Consultant and run my own virtual company -nextManager.net. I am always online (20 hours a day he he he), although stay hidden most of the time to keep both my staff and clients at bay.
