Little Words To Live By

Try to please everyone, you will find yourself going crazy – M. L. Lai

Few days back, I prepared an email to my subscribers and I received a response for it, highlighting that the content was copied from another source. Indeed, I did use the content from another source and I graciously acknowledge it. So, what’s the purpose of me blogging about this specific incident. There is no justification for plagiarism. It’s an act of virtual crime if you plagiarize content online. You will get slapped by Google for content duplication and its a big NO NO for SEO. Have I ever plagiarize content online on any websites ? What do you think ?

The content of the email was plagiarize. Did I get a big slap from Google ? No. Did I break trust and lose integrity of my self worth as a person? Perhaps. Should I feel shame and awfully lousy that I re-use good content email from another source and share it with my followers ? No.

One day, you will realize the meaning of “work smart” than “work hard”. One day, you will realize all ideas are spawn from plagiarism. One day, you will realize that all millionaires uses the same method. The rich are the minority and the average are the majority in the society.

I am human. If you want to judge me for copying content for an email and classify me as an unworthy person. So be it.

There is no victims, only volunteers to misery – M. L. Lai

This would be an interesting post. I’m on auction for 3 hours. Check it out on Facebook. Whoever wants to bid for me, please know that I’m not offering my time to “make money online” for you. =)

A ‘No’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble – Ghandi

I have not been blogging of late. I have been terribly busy co-ordinating community service project. Due to BERSIH activity last weekend, the “Pick Up Rubbish” Campaign was changed to another campaign – MAD FUN DAY With Kids.
