Reflections About Learn-A-Thon 2011 (Part 7)

by Patrick Liew on December 12, 2011

On November 28, 2011, we set a National Record.

We created the largest montage of currency notes. This is the first attempt of its kind, and the feat was entered into the Singapore Book of Records.

Why set a record?

I told some of the volunteers, “We should not set a record for record sake.

“It is an experience to remind ourselves that we have one life to live.

“Life is short and there is no dress rehearsal or any way to repeat it.

“Therefore, we should bring out the best from ourselves and put on our best selves at all times. We should also aim for the best.

“Achieving a national record will hopefully help us develop a champion mindset, behavior and vision.

“It’s a basis for a meaningful and dynamic living.”

Like any other success, we could only achieve the record because we worked as a team. Without effective teamwork, there will always be a limit to what we can achieve in life.

In the process of setting a record, it was also my wish that it was done for a higher purpose. I like to convey a message to our brothers and sisters suffering in the floods that we care for them. We are putting in our best effort to support relief efforts for them.

When I reflect on the experience, I realized that I could have done better. However, I am happy that I have put in my full commitment, passion and effort. It has become a memorable experience in my life.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
