Posted by Azim Azman on April 11, 2017 at 11:20 AM Comments comments (0)



Hi, today I would like to write about tips and tricks that I use to focus on my study and finish more in a period. In today's world, people are busy with so many distractions. It is very important that you know what the most important for you to do. What skills you need to develop that will give you the most advantages and make you so good that people cannot ignore you!


Read: How to be so good in your industry!


This idea is base on the new book " Deep Work" by Cal Newport. It suggests that you do an intense focus work in a period of 1 hour to 3 hours to get the best result of your work. The more you focus the faster you can learn and master the skills. It also one of the ways to pass your next ACCA exam!

Alright, without wasting more time here we go!


1) Get into the environment.

You need to work in a good environment. An environment that has the least distraction for you to give an intense focus. My best place to do my intense focus of study is at the library and study room. The environment is so good, with good lighthing, aircondition and quiet distraction free environment.


2) Stop doing anything else.

Turn off your internet connection, put your phone in silent. Stop doing anthing else and clear your mind. Focus on the work that you will do.


3) Set the beginning and end time.

You need to set usual and consistent period of time you do your work so that it easily become your habit! For example 1 hour per session. Then took a quick break of 15 minutes and repeat the process.






4) Set what you want to achieve in that time block.

During the session, it's very important for you to plan your objectives. It will make you feel more motivated to finish the job planned. Plus you will finish more if you set a goal!


5) Have a simple motivational word to repeat. For example " Push x3" 

During the session, you could probably feel demotivated, repeat a good affirmation to keep the motivation high!


6) Give yourself simple reward after finish it.

Study shows that it will easier for you to form a habit if you give yourself a small reward after you form the action. A simple reward like a drink, a pat in the back or even a small pack of chocolate can give you motivation to do it again and again!

How to Pass ACCA Paper

Posted by Azim Azman on February 6, 2017 at 10:45 AM Comments comments (2)





Hi everyone, in this post will tell you guys what I know and use to pass my ACCA paper. I have been taking ACCA for years now, and I realise it not as easy as it looks. It is different from other course, it's very challenging. And to pass the paper, you need to have plan and strategy on how you will tackle the subject or paper. Without wasting more time, here we go...


How to pass ACCA:


1) You need to self study for 3 to 6 hours a day. If you have classes on that day, it might be enough for you to study 3 hours on that day. However, if you do not have class, you should spend more time to self study.

2) You need to concentrate or give focus during the study time. Study in time block of 1 hour, turn off all distraction during that time, then take rest for few minutes before do it again for another hour.


3) Always keep yourself motivated. It will take hours of your time, you need to always be willing to sacrifice a lot of things. You need to keep yourself motivated.



4) You need to understand the concept of the paper subject. Make sure you have covered all the topics in that paper. If possible, make sure you have made notes for all the topics too.




5) Do a lot of question. Practicing question shows that you understand the subject and topic. Do question of all chapters. And do past year question at least 4 past year paper.

6) You need to exercise regularly. Exercise will supply more oxygen to your brain which enable it to be more active and remember more. In my observation, many of my friends that exercise regularly have better memory.

7) Keep good relationship with friends, family and God. You need a lot of support from them. Financial support and emotional support. Always remember that you are studying this hard for them. Remember your ' WHY '.


If you follow most of I wrote above, I can guarantee you that you have a big chance to pass the paper. Do all this preparation fast and early, then during the exam is around the corner, you then has already ready for the exam at that time. 

Hope this writing benefit to you guys. I hope you use tips I have given you, and if you find it useful, I hope you can share it to your friends, so more can benefit from it.

The Reality of Taking ACCA

Posted by Azim Azman on January 22, 2017 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)





For many years I have been taking ACCA, I can see some patterns form from the students. Some can pass the paper, some still struggle to pass, some still do not know how to pass the paper, and some have already given up.


Before you can say anything about this course, you need to know it is a very tough course. The passing rate can be as lower as 30% to 50% for each subject or paper. Which means, every 100 students that take the paper, only 30 to 50 students will pass it. The rest will fail.


It has been a very struggle for the students that still cannot find ways to pass the paper, they do not know what it takes to pass the paper.


Taking ACCA requires your full commitment, it demands you to spend thousands of ringgit for the annual fee and exam fee. It need you to study hard and smart. And you also need a lot of support, from your parents and friends.


Due to this, I think I will write about on what takes to pass ACCA paper on the next blog post.

Why kids should go to school and how parents can help.

Posted by Azim Azman on January 15, 2016 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (2)

I found in life or reality, everybody has a value in market place. That's why some people just get paid $50 per hour and some other people got paid $5000 in an hour. Some people called it a ladder. You climb the ladder of value. When you were a kid, you started small, with some value to provide to the market place, then when you grow older, you started to start learning, some language, science,math and etc.

Thus, the conclusion is you should add more value, more knowledge, more skills in yourself as you growing up and old. One of my favorite speaker Jim Rohn once said, " If you work hard on your job you can make a living, if you work hard on yourself you can make a fortune."  Start today to learn more and become more.

" If you work hard on your job you can make a living, if you work hard on yourself you can make a fortune."

If a person that is working in MCDonalds today for example, if he or she learns more skills, upgrade his communicattion skills, leadership skills, working hard and finding oppurtunity to grow, I will guarented you he will at least get a promotion and provide a better life to his family. Never stop learning and improving.

Hence, someone who got a degree could probably paid more as he can provide more value to the company. How much value can you provide?




Another thing, parents can help their children when the kid was small, he don't have a ambition of what he or she wants to be in the future. Thus, this is a very important job of the parents to expose to the children the options that they have. When the kids is more expose in the early age, they can start to dream more and early. The parents should then encourage them to pursue the goals. Tell them they can do it.

If the kids love supercar, bring them to the Gocar. If they love music, sends them to the music class. If they love football, register them to a football academy. 




A movie I just watched recently is the Ronaldo The Movie, it was about the famous Portugal Player, Cristiano Ronaldo. He is one of the famous and most successful footballer nowsadays. What the movie told is that Ronaldo being able to be so successful today as he was being register by his parents to a football acedemy for kids when he was small. He is also has so much passion to it. He has become so valuable that he valued hundreds of millions!!! He has so much value in himself, he work hard on himself early, improving the run, the skills and the score.

Imagine your kids can discover their passion so early, they were exposed to it and being supported by their parents. In my observation, most successful sport person started when they were small.

The earlier you find your passion and harnessing it, the more valueable you become!

The next thing after I have talked about value given in market place and how parents can help, The next thing is we also can leverage the value we give to the market place.

The law of the market is the more value we give to more people, the more rewards we will get. Nowsadays, to have that leverage, someone must go into the business or create a product that the market needed. Don't get me wrong, all people can start business part time. And I think that is the best option, business is hard, you need experience and good skillset. Thus, working on a job and working on business part time is a very good combination to the new people who wants to start business.

The law of the market is the more value we give to more people, the more rewards we will get.

As you started working on a job and start accumulating some financial capital, the person must learn how to be good in marketing, packaging and servicing. For me, these are some of important traits in an enterprise. As you provide wide marketing, more customer will know about your business. If they love your beautiful packaging and fast service, they will keep coming and bring you profit. That is how you can bring more value, to more people. 





For example, Dato Seri Vida has started to learn about business when she was small, then as she growing up, she keep doing an aggresive marketing strategy, sponsoring many TV reality shows and even sponsoring a football team TRW for RM16 Million. By doing that, her product and business get wide coverage and esposure. With that, more people will buy her product, thus she provided value to so much more many people. By doing that, her wealth keep increasing. 

The conclusion to my writing:
1) Everybody, I mean everybody has a value to give and can increase the value in themself by keep learning new skills and work hard.
2) Parents can help to discover their children passion in the early age and encourage them.
3) We can increase our value given by creating product or business that give more value to more people. 

In the next blogpost I will write about students planning and planning to increase their wealth. 

Take care and stay cool guys.
