Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem

While it’s important to prepare for dark clouds looming ahead, we should also remember that unpredictability is not an enemy and uncertainty is not a foe.

Challenges should never hold us back from developing a growth-oriented mindset and pursuing the next level of achievements.

At a time, when many countries are tightening their belts, it’s an opportune time for Singapore to develop our human capital, improve our infrastructure, and strengthen our competitive edge to leapfrog over other developed economies.

We should proactively identity markets which are unserved and under-served, or which can be better served by new and better offerings.

Exploit the silver lining in every dark cloud and capitalize on new needs, gaps, markets, businesses and opportunities that will rise with every change of the economic cycle.

In the process of using a potential downturn to prepare for an upturn, we should ask ourselves; “What are tomorrow’s problems we should start resolving from today?

“What are tomorrow’s opportunities they should start capitalizing upon from today?”

The world is at an inflection point to herald the advent of a new age, supported by accelerated growth of advanced technology.

If Singapore plays our game well, we can be one of the fulcrums of a neo-Renaissance Age.
