Nowadays, I noticed some public toilet are charging 30c each transaction to the world most important bank. It was 20c a few years before. Maybe some might said, "ala... 10c jek pun..". But, mathematically speaking, it was 50% increase in price. And worst if you have to pay the 30c and they have never maintain the cleanliness level (take Ampang Superbowl at Mahkota Parade for example). It's a shame of them.
But one thing for sure never raise up is the one and only - my salary. I swear to god, ever since the price went up, I am facing difficulties in managing my income. My salary is just enough for me to survive from paycheck to paycheck. Nothing more for me to keep aside.
In this case, I need to make a move in order for me to survive. As I Jack Canfield mentioned in on of his book :
(E + R = O)
Event + response = Outcome
I definitely cannot change the event (which in this case is the inflation rate and hike in prices) but I definitely can change my response to it. So, if I decided for a desirable 'outcome', using simple math equation, I just need to define my response to it. It sound simple, isn't it? So let us give it a try.
