Finding energy to do New Nation

Posted on 31 October 2011

Frankly, I don’t know where it comes from.

By Terence Lee

Last week, a friend said that she’s amazed I’m able to handle two websites at once. While is something I co-founded, it doesn’t pay the bills — in fact, we barely break even.

I work full time at, which is already a handful.

To be honest, I don’t know where I get the energy from. Last week, I practically worked everyday — I spent about five days on SGE, and two days on I do rest on weekends, but I make sure I get some important work done.

Perhaps it is the thrill of starting something new, and watching it grow. Perhaps I get a kick out of learning new things, and seeing our content go viral. I don’t know.

Online media is like a drug to me. Once you’re in the flow, you’ll never let go.

But I guess having fun is the most important thing. With that taken cared of, work doesn’t feel like work anymore.
