"Teacher is our candle, shows us our road, leads us in the direction, and lights up our future. Before this, we must have 'matches' which light up those 'candles'."
Written in 2009 by Sim Kai Loon --- Malaysia
Anyone could be a candle but few only can be the match. I hope everyone can appreciate and explore more on the work of recruiting the best teachers as they are the key on how successful the future generation will be.

"Don't equate activity with efficiency. You are paying your key people to see the big picture. Don't let them get bogged down in a lot of meaningless meetings and paper shuffling. Announce a Friday afternoon off once in a while. Cancel a Monday morning meeting or two. Tell the cast of characters you'd like them to spend the amount of time normally spent preparing for attending the meeting at their desks, simply thinking about an original idea."
Harvey Mackay

"Teamwork is neither 'good" nor "desirable.' It is a fact. Wherever people work together or play together they do so as a team. Which team to use for what purpose is a crucial, difficult and risky decision that is even harder to unmake. Managements have yet to learn how to make it."
Peter Drucker
