So, I was reading through the slides for one of my new modules.
And yes, I actually study most of the slides before the classes begins.
Always be prepared, you never know what might happen.

I stumbled upon the word opportunity in one of the slide.
The way the slide portray about 'opportunity' is that
it is something favorable, like an easy way of making money or success.

But as a chess player and a bookworm who had read a lot of books on business,
I think most opportunity in the real world are not as apparent as they may seem.

And the slides also gave some sort of illusion
that the presence of opportunity means less effort will be needed.

I am totally against this.
From my past experience struggling with my 5 assignments which I had to complete all of them within
4 days because my computer had corrupted all of my assignments.
That was a painful lesson but gave me an opportunity to improve myself.
Do note that I was working as a freelance web designer back then.
Was really stressful.

Because of that, I am now able to program software and websites fast.
I can also learn things faster than I used to.

I think hardship is important.
It goes along with opportunity.

All in all, I think opportunity requires efforts and it may not be apparent most of the time.

Is it significant enough?

As humans, we will always have our needs and wants.
Will it reach to a point that all those are enough?
I wonder...

Or is it because we are humans, so it will never be enough for us
as long as we continue living in this world.
I guess that is why death is inevitable.
Without death, our never ending needs and wants will never stop.

Based on Maslow hierarchy of needs
as can be refer from here,
the ultimate goal is to attain self-actualization.

How many of us were able to reach that level
before time catches up?

From the current trend where kids want cool devices such as smartphones,
tablets and maybe a nice car.
I think that people from my generation is sort of screw up in a way.
No offense but I'd seen a lot of their behaviors especially in college.

Not that I have anything against them.
It is just that they can be too demanding at times.

I dunno what I will have to look forward to seeing them at work.
People dun change over night.

just like a math equation where the value on both sides are the same.

Sadly, we humans are not equations.
Therefore we can be unpredictable sometimes.
And not one person in this world is the exactly the same as another.

That is why sometimes people tend to have conflicting
ideas and opinions.
In a way, we are all an unique individual by ourselves.

And by being unique, we were sometimes treated differently
since each of us may have different way of perceiving certain matters or events.
Thus, it is perfectly normal for an argument to spark between two individuals.
Even for a new couple or a long time married couple.

Another example would be how a boss or manager
may reward some of his or her employees differently because
some of them may have different preferences in terms of reward.
Some may see wealth as a primary source of motivation.
Others may feel that by getting more power in decision making,
they will feel more comfortable working.

Having to fight or strive for equality is a good thing.
But it can also be a bad thing if its intention is no good.
Example, an employee found out that one of his or her colleague's
pay is higher than his or hers.
Obviously this will make him or her unhappy.

You see, sometimes we humans despite knowing that each of us are different,
we still want to compare with one another to feel more superior.
That is not what I called equality.

As a conclusion,
it is difficult to apply equality on us humans,
for we are the x-factor for most events.
By x-factor, I mean being unpredictable at times.

Yes, I am a skeptic as well.
I like to question things.
At times, I even doubt the knowledge I have on certain niche.

Without doubt,
it will limit our ability to learn.
Because of having doubts, we can explore.

If without having to doubt,
we will close many doors of opportunities.
We will narrow down our perception on certain things.
This will tend to lead some of us into being close-minded at times.

The likelihood of being able to make a better decision is by
having to open up our minds to a bigger world of possibilities and ideas.
By seeing the bigger picture,
we will be able to see the "flow" and "pattern" of certain things.

And I think because of this mentality of mine,
I sometimes end up clashing a lot with other people.
But the good thing is that I will be able to learn a lot.
That is if I am able to keep cool and listen.hahax..

I am a human too ya know.
Have feelings, stress and all,
so at times I will become unstable as well.
Just like the rest of the human population.

And yup,
being a skeptic means that I tend to be neutral at times.
Trying not to take sides if possible.

I brought this topic up because of the recent general election
that was held in my country.
Sometimes, people who took sides end up being
blinded from certain perspectives.
It helps being open minded
as it keeps us being rational.
