#MotivationMonday Imagine you were asked to invent something new. That kind of creative freedom sounds so liberating, or ...does it?

As it turns out, boundless freedom isn't always helpful. In reality, any project is restricted by many factors called 'creative constraints' — the requirements and limitations we have to address to accomplish a goal.

In this video, STEM-education specialist, Brandon Rodriguez, explains how creative constraints actually help drive discovery and innovation.

#MotivationMonday: Congratulations, you've just achieved a goal you've been working towards for two years!
Someone asks you, 'How does it feel?'
Kind of anti-climactic, you feel.

Psychologist, Adam Atler, says that this scenario is quite common among those who have achieved even the highest benchmarks in business, athletics, or art and it's because the goal setting process is broken.

In this video, he suggests swapping quantitative goals for qualitative systems that nourish you psychologically, and are independently rewarding each time you do them.

Local Posted 4 months ago

Social workers have it tough. Their lives often revolve around others and the work that they do sometimes consumes them emotionally. But they are driven by their passion to help others and often feel rewarded when those under their care do well and gain self-reliance.

As we celebrate our colleagues from AMP's Social Services Division, here is a look into a typical day in the life of case officer, Ms Suhailah Sapuan, who works with families under AMP's Adopt a Family & Youth Scheme (AYFS).

#MotivationMonday: Writer and designer, Graham Hill, lays out the facts in this short video: we have more stuff than we’ve ever had in history, yet many of us are far from happy. At times, we buy way more than we need.

His recommendation is simple: we need to edit our life – just like writing. When we are not weighed down by our possessions, we have more freedom (and more money!) to pursue the activities, experiences, and memories that truly matter to us.

Also, tune in to Mediacorp Radio WARNA 94.2FM this Thursday, 18 May at 5.00pm where our officers from AMP Debt Advisory Centre will share their thoughts on the importance of financial literacy, especially among youths. (more…)

Local Posted 5 months ago

AMP senior manager Hameet Khanee told The Sunday Times that easy access to narcotics has contributed to the increase in the number of Malay drug abusers.

Highlighting that some drugs are easily available online, she added: "Current awareness programmes and drug prevention campaigns should be enhanced, especially those targeted at schools.

"More effort should go into enhancing the role of the family as the main avenue of support and educator. This is particularly more important for families where both parents are working and supervision is minimal."

In a move to reach out to Malay/Muslim drug offenders who are still behind bars and their families, AMP launched last month its new Development and Reintegration Programme.

Madam Hameet said there are two phases in this initiative. The first one has 10 sessions covering topics on reflection, strengthening families, financial literacy, work-related skills and new beginnings.

These are designed to complement the programmes that are currently being offered by the Singapore Prison Service.

The second phase focuses on after-care, with case work services for inmates and their families.

There are 23 inmates and families in the pilot run. The goal is to support up to 100 inmates and their families over a year.

A Ray of Light in the Darkness

Alhamdulillah, we have raised more than $130,000 through our telepoll campaign on MediaCorp Radio Station Warna 94.2FM in aid of the Adopt a Family & Youth Scheme (AFYS) over the past four weeks.

However, we are still $20,000 short of our target of $150,000 needed to help the families under AFYS.

With your support and generous contribution, the families under AFYS will be assisted in their journey towards achieving self-reliance through various economic empowerment and socio-educational programmes.

Most importantly, we are helping these families strengthen their family unit.

Our telepoll lines will be open for donations till 24 July 2017.

You can still lend your support by calling:
1900 112 4020 (for $20 donation)
1900 112 4050 (for $50 donation)

Join us in our efforts to uplift the socio-economic status of underprivileged families.

Help spread the word to aid our cause. Your generosity will be most appreciated.

COMPASSION 8888 made it to the Singapore Book of Records as the largest distribution of nasi minyak packages in one day!

AMP-Comma Convention and Free Food for All thank all of the donors, volunteers and supporters for contributing towards the success of our charity drive.

Held on Saturday 11 February 2017, our event was attended by Mr Amrin, Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Home Affairs, who helped in the preparing of the meals; as well as Mr Zainul Abidin Rasheed, who flagged off our volunteer drivers carrying the meals to the beneficiaries.

We hope the event had been meaningful and shed some light on the socio-economic divide in Singapore to our participants.

Following this, CommaCon will be organising an experiential bus tour to highlight the many layers of "poverty" in Singapore. Do add us on www.facebook.com/commaconvention to keep posted on this and other upcoming events!

A Ray of Light in the Darkness

While we would never expect calamity to befall us or our families, none of us can say for sure that it will never happen. Rarely are we prepared for when it does happen. Many of the families under AMP's Adopt a Family & Youth Scheme (AFYS) have gone through such difficulties and with the help rendered under the scheme, are staying resilient in the face of tough times. The scheme supports these families in their effort towards building a better future for themselves.

Tune in to Mediacorp Radio WARNA 94.2FM to listen to the interview of the beneficiaries assisted under AFYS.
