My Paradigm Shift

Below is the very first blog post I had ever written which was featured on my old blog Engineered Altitude in Nov 2015. It’s funny to read posts from the past. It gives you a glimpse of your thoughts and feelings that you may have forgotten and shows you how much have grown as a person.


Hello world

Welcome to my blog.

This blog is a reflection of my paradigm shift. A documentation and journal of my existence.

After my trip to America, I came back to New Zealand to finish my Civil Engineering degree. My body went from a constant high of feels to ground zero. The 9-5 deferred life plan left me thinking, is this right for me? Lost on what direction to head, you could say this page also reflects my search for fulfillment and identity.

Where do you turn to when you’re lost? World-class achievers. They are the ones that challenge the status quo. The people who push the human race forward. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers.

The one thing they all have in common is that they constantly improve themselves every day. Foolishly trying to imitate these world-class achievers left me picking up a book and I have not looked back since. With each book I finish, I feel I see the world from a different perspective.

I will share with you the books that I believe will bring the ordinary somewhat closer to the extraordinary. I will deconstruct their methods, strip away trivial and mundane junk, find techniques, tips, patterns, and leave you with the key golden nuggets (because who doesn’t like nuggets).

Your attitude determines your altitude”
