RIP Senator Juan Flavier and Thank You

Rappler reported that the good Senator Juan Flavier had passed away yesterday.



Screengrab from the Rappler report.


I believe the he was among the few who gave his best while serving in the government. He was effective as a Secretary of Health. I would say that Filipinos would remember him more than the other who served as secretaries.

As a senator, he gained a reputation for being competent and more importantly with no taint of corruption.

I came to know of his column in Manila Bulletin during my job hunting days after graduation.

Thank you for your service, good Senator.

DECLUTTERING

DECLUTTERING...

So much going on... I must DO THIS.

As I was going home last night, I felt so exhausted. Not just physically but I felt so heavy in my mind.

That's why I vowed to lessen the clutter, lesson the chaos and prioritize those that matter.

One of the first things that I did today is to unsubscribe to different sites and marketing gurus. Are you in the same boat? Is your first act in the office is to check your e-mail and get consumed checking a lot of e-mail subscriptions? Perhaps you ought to declutter your online habits, too?

Then I remembered Leo Babauta's name who became known for blogging about simple living. I must read more about him and less of the numerous subscriptions I made.

Just that, I felt I have cleared space for breathing, literally.

Insurance & Investment To Consider

As planned, I met my friend who is a licensed financial adviser as my first step to financial literacy.

Here's what transpired and my corresponding thoughts...

Prior to our meeting, I shared to him that I may be able to save 3000 per month based on my current salary and expenditures. So, he discussed with me an insurance & investment plan based on the amount I said I was capable of.

The benefits of the insurance policy he offered included if I die by accident or if I get permanent disability and hospitalization.

But what I was really interested to was when he explained that if I will be able to save and invest Php 3000 per month from 37 until I was 60 years old (totalling to Php 828,000), I will be able to receive a little more than 1.5 million in return. This was only a projection, considering 10% interest per annum and compounded continuously of the money I've invested.

Wow! To me that would be a lot. The most cash I have seen in my entire life is Php 350,000. What a nice retirement bonus! If I'll have my way, when I reach 60, I would just be blogging and if physically possible play badminton. My mind was in overdrive on how I can come up with the money to invest consistently.

Of course, the bubble burst immediately. In life, nothing is certain but taxes and death. So, inquired if I miss to pay for the monthly investment. He said that I will be given 30 days to pay up which means I have to pay double in the next month. And when worse comes to worst, I will be able to withdraw the money I invested with some deductions.

There's a good chance that I will sign up for this insurance and investment policy.
