We Live in Different Timezone

November 29, 2017

Time Zone Map
Today, I'm very delighted to share something with you guys.

Now in Melaka, when I'm writing this post, it is 1:49 PM. Maybe my friends in UK, they just wake up from their sleep because it's still early, 5:50AM. But it doesn't mean that they are slow and I'm faster. This is because we are living in our own ‘Time Zone’.

Recently, there was an aunty condemned by the netizens because of her swanky claims that with her current salary (RM2XXX+), she can have more than 5 houses, many cars and can still save some of them.

She said the youngsters nowadays are too much pampered compare to her time, nagged about the fresh grad that fails to secure a job quickly after graduation date, and continuously told the public about her glorious teenage era where people at that time were really easy to get a job, the youngsters are all working since very young age etc.

Honestly, I totally couldn't agree with her statement. You can't compare today with the past 10 20 years. That time has already gone.

I'm 19. They say, to be a successful person, people should do multiple jobs, so I do multiple jobs even though I know it might affect my study. 

I study every day, I blog, I do freelance designing that consumes my study time, I do freelance writing that needs me to put my assignment aside because the dateline is very near, I even do selling cloth at the "Pasar Malam" in every sem break where I need to deal with different kind of customers that sometimes I can't tolerate with their behavior.

I am trying to do my best for my life and I believe that others are doing the same things too. Everyone wants the best for their life but unfortunately, they have not yet reached their ‘Time Zone’. Their time is not coming yet.

So, you can't compare the times. Today, life is super hard, worse, the petrol price increases every few months.

If you are really wanted to compare the time, let me tell you something. Someone graduated at the age of 21, yet waited 5 years before securing a job, and there is another who graduated at the age of 27 and secured employment just after national service.

Someone became CEO at the age of 25 and died at the age of 45 while another became a CEO at the age of 40 and lived to 80 years. 

Someone is still single. Someone got married and ‘waited’ ten years before having a child, there is another who had had a baby within one year after marriage. 

... and I started blogging last year and was approved by Adsense after only a few months and was disabled just yesterday because of invalid traffic while some bloggers that have been blogging for more than 5 or 10 years yet still don't get any approval from Adsense and stay active.

All of these have really happened.

Everyone worked based on their ‘Time Zone’. Some people have everything that works fast for them. Colleagues, friends, associates, the youngster might “seem” to go ahead of you. Don’t envy them and please don't underestimate them, it’s their ‘Time Zone.’

You’re not late… you are not early... 

Yours is coming soon. Hold on.
