Jack of All Trade

Sometimes, we have to take a pause , and ask ourselves whether to be a Jack of all trade or to be a specialist in our studies, career or our outlook of life . Indeed, most of us have an objective in what we want in life. But as we advance in age, we drift with the motion of reality, the way of Tao and our objectives seem to disappear with advancing age.

Remember, when we were toddlers, our parents would proudly say, " Surelah, we want our kids to be doctors.."
Then after the primary school, after our "best efforts", parents felt a bit disappointed, then say, " aiyoooh cannot be doctor, nevermind, can still be engineer.."
Then after the secondary school, parents are faced with reality, " aiyoooh,...cannot be engineer , never mind... be a teacher also can..."
But with more disappoinments, the parents say, ".. aiyoooh.. cannot be teacher, go and be mechanic...but don't be a drug addict, robber or snatch-thief ( it seems this is the highest risk but best paid job)...."

Disappointments after disappointments are faced by parents, yet they still support and offer encouragements to their kids, who have to face so many obstacles in life. So many dreams and hopes of the children are shattered. Some become a social menance, some end behind bars. The stronger ones rehabilitate and return to society with sucess..... as the saying sound, "Life must go on..."

Yet, we are sad to see that many parents are "kiasu", pushing very hard to see that their kids must be "specialists" not a Jack of all trade. Must be a medical specialist, must be a specialist engineer, must be a specialist lawyer, specialist manager, specialist accountant. "Kid you are nothing being a GP, a lawyer, an engineer... see right neighbour ...specialist in ABC Medical Centre, one time operation done 30K, that left neighbour only a GP taking 3-4K a month....or opposite right neighbour "dadah criminal" specialist lawver...one case can be up to 50K ( and free dadah pusher back to the street).. and that left opposite lawyer...only buruk himself through the way ... a couple of hundred ringgit case also want to sapu..." See, why now everyone wants to specialize?

Jack may be able handle any possible obstacles. That's why the company likes Jack or " one-leg-kick" ' ..anything also can do and just reward them with peanut pay. Ask a Jack, he will run errands well, whether he likes or not; he will stay back for overtime and just phone back "darling spouse , got to do overtime.... you take the kids for dinner...."; he will backstab his collegues, saying so and so damn lazy , bitchy, never do work ....and many more.." That's why boss likes Jack. Jack will also be the first to be kicked out if the company wants to restructure to reduce cost..

Specialists are in for a better life. They are better paid. They can afford what many can't. Just see..how can a company sack a very creative accountant...How can a company not required a tax-specialist who can result a company paying less tax...how can a company sack a brand-specialist..? So that's why it still pays to be a specialist now.

But, kids nowadays sense the wish of the parents early. That's why they begin to specializel early...in the latest high tech gadgets where parents even don't know the names. The kids play up-to-date computer games so that parents cannnot beat them. They wear specialists' designed clothings after all paid by parents. They carry the latest fashioned bags, wear the "Jimmy Choo" specialized shoes and thongs in hope that the parents are seen to be modern. The kids believe in , " if you can't beat them, join the crowd."

So now ..what say you. " Still want to be a JACK??"
I better go off and listen to this song now, " Que sera sera..whatever will be , will be....."

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
