The decision was made following a meeting in Butterworth at 3.30pm yesterday to discuss a circular by the Petroleum Dealers Association of Malaysia, which had sent out a notice to 3,200 members nationwide advising them to refuse all cards.
More than 400 stations in the northern region decided to enforce the move and started refusing the payment from midnight.
Unlike Newton, Stephen Covey's (The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People) offer a paradigm shift to this external forces of action that seemingly and endlessly bounding us. Instead of reacting we should respond. Covey called it being proactive.
A good question is that has everybody responded positively to the action imposed directly or indirectly to us? Has the government been proactive to the global oil price hike? Or the business world that speculated the oil commodity?
For those who have the direct influential power over the majority, please learn to be proactive.
