Thought for the day     TM Tamura


December is the month people look back the year.

 At the corporate level, managers are busy to review the performance of
their group and individual performance of their employees.

 At the personal level, you might ask to yourself with various questions.

 Did I study hard this year to learn new things in the school?  Did I work
hard to obtain satisfactory results at work place?  Did I challenge enough
in making as many as speeches in the Toastmasters club this year?


Your questions may continue.  Could I spend enough time with my children?
Was I good and kind to my partner?  Andc.., was I happy this year?


My answers?  Let me think of them.  Itfs still the beginning of December,
so I have one month to think of my answers.
