Focus on Revival

Unlike others who make resolutions, I usually set a theme or focus for the year and plan the year ahead. As the year passes, I set goals around this focus.

In the past 2 years, I have focused on development. As part of that process, I left my job of 5 years as a corporate counsel.

I went back to law school to do a law conversion programme and I got my licence to practise law in Singapore. I now work as an advocate and solicitor in Global Law Alliance LLC.

The change has been refreshing.

I no longer advise just one company but a whole array of individuals and entities. I have been introduced to areas of law that I was never exposed to in my in-house stint. I have made many new friends, some of whom are very close now.

It is not easy to put your life on hold.

A lot of sacrifices have to be made and you tend to deprioritise things you once considered important (for example, updating this blog).

You also come back to a lot of debt!

The next 2 years are going to be about revival. I wish to revive the things that I once wanted to do, to have and to pursue.

I hope you will take some time to think about your year ahead.

Happy New Year.
