Have you ever asked yourself if you really wanted to move up the career ladder? I had always thought I certainly did; that is, until I chanced upon some interesting commentary on moving up the corporate ladder in the book Everyone's Business on Getting Ahead by Gorden Wells You work will have become your Life....

This is a limited-time offer for the Borders book store, Singapore (until 30 July 2009). Buy two books for 20% off, or buy three for 25% off. Just thought I'd share. Get the coupons on here.

Bing Donn Lee’s Star
You ask yourself if having a domain name, specifically edonn.com, actually creates more stress than necessary. Didn’t you just go to bing.com to do a search on "donn lee" realise that it didn’t contain any results linking to your webpage? And didn't this little thing cause you to start feeling a little flustered, a little... Continue Reading →
320 Books at Age 9
I was sent an e-mail today promoting Adam Khoo's I Am Gifted program. In it contained a testimonial from a girl who, at age 9 had read 320 books, apparently something made possible only after she participated in this program. Imagine sending your children through this program and having them do this sort of thing. Yup,... Continue Reading →
Knowing the Full Story

The calculation used in the calculation of how much to give as "Ang Pow" is pretty standard fare. You generally will... Continue Reading →
Clutter: The Beauty of Less
Stuff I didn't need nor use lay strewn across my room, on my table, floor, and shelves: books I hadn't read in ages and some I hadn't read at all; souvenirs from a trip that wasn't particularly interesting, and that I didn't even go; exercise equipment I didn't use; keys to unknown locks; and other...

My Work Life
I suppose it hasn't really been kosher for me to have avoided talk about my work life thus far. Most of you probably don't even know what I'm working as or where I'm working at. Well, I'm currently working as a business analyst for an electronic components distributor. The job largely entails the generation of... Continue Reading →
A Lack of Creativity
I've been reading too much lately. It's making my brain lazy, I think. Every time I think that I'd finally write something here, I'd retreat back to the comfort of my books -- it's so much easier that way.
Where did edonn.com go?
In case you're wondering where http://edonn.com has gone, well, it has now moved to https://donn.wordpress.com! The move is permanent, so you might want to update your links. All the previous permalinks to my writings will still work, however. Why the move? Well, let's just say I have other plans for edonn.com.
