May be not....

May be Not….

Do you ever consider that you might be wrong? Do you ever question your assumptions?

What’s so great about being right, anyway?
And what’s so terrible about being wrong?

There are many valuable ideas and approaches that are not yours.
Unfortunately, to perpetuate your own sense of “being right", you sometimes ignore the perfectly useful perspectives of others.
Always “being right” will earn you little more than resentment.
It creates barriers and inhibits communication.

Discard the attachment to being right and you’ll open up enormous new vistas in your thinking and perception.

What if you actually listened to people without trying to figure out how to prove them wrong?
Think of what you could learn, of how you could benefit from the experience and perspective of others.

Paradoxically, you’ll come closer to the truth when you let go of the need to be right.

Faced with the choice between
changing one’s mind and proving
there is no need to do so, almost
everyone gets busy on the proof."
-- John Kenneth Galbraith

Breast Self-Examination

Semalam beberapa orang student dari universiti kat Kota Samarahan menjemput saya utk buat demonstrasi "self examination of the Breast" dalam kempen awareness of Breast Cancer.
Malang nya tak dpt memenuhi hajat mereka kerana ada program pada hari yg ditetapkan.
Anyway..saya buat sedikit tulisan mengenai nya di sini...

Breast Self Exam Tool
Monthly breast self-exams are an option for all women beginning by age 20.

Women who regularly examine their breasts become more aware of how their breasts normally feel.

They are more likely to notice changes -- including masses or lumps -- that could be early signs of cancer.

It's best to check about a week after your period, when breasts are not swollen or tender.

If you no longer have a period, examine yourself on the same day every month.

If you see or feel a change in your breasts, see your doctor immediately. But remember, most of the time breast changes are not cancer.

Test 1
Using a mirror, inspect your breasts with your arms at your sides, with your hands on your hips, and with your arms raised while flexing your chest muscles.

Test 2
Look for any changes in contour, swelling, dimpling of skin, or appearance of the nipple. It is normal if your right and left breasts do not match exactly.

Test 3
Using the pads of your fingers, press firmly on your breast, checking the entire breast and armpit area. Move around your breast in a circular, up-and-down, or wedge pattern. Remember to use the same method every month. Check both breasts.

Test 4
There are three patterns you can use to examine your breast: the circular, the up-and-down, and the wedge patterns. Use the pattern that is easiest for you, and use the same pattern every month.

Test 5
Gently squeeze the nipple of each breast and report any discharge to your doctor immediately.

Test 6
Examine both breasts lying down. To examine the right breast, place a pillow under your right shoulder and place your right hand behind your head. Using the pads of your fingers, press firmly, checking the entire breast and armpit area. Use the same pattern you used while standing. Repeat for your left breast.
