It's always about people

From time to time, we try very hard to improve things,
to create better products, to improve our service to customers,
to increase productivity & efficiency.
There are a lot of problems along the way.
But at the end of the day, the problem remains the same: PEOPLE.

It's always about expectation.
It's always about communication.
It's always about trust.

Dealing with people, there's only one recipe for success:
Do it with your heart.
Do it faithfully.
Emphasize characters & values.

We are not victims of our conditioning...

We are not victims of our conditioning...

Effective communicating and listening both begin with language.
Are you proactive or reactive in your language?

Between stimulus and response, you have the freedom to choose.
This is your greatest power.
One of the most important things you choose is what you say.
Your language is a good indicator of how you see yourself.

A proactive person uses proactive language: I can, I will, I prefer.

A reactive person uses reactive language: if only, I can't, I must.

Reactive people believe they are not responsible for what they say,
they have no choice.

Each morning is the new beginning of life...

What make my life feels fulfilled?

- When I could contribute something that valuable for others' future
- When I could love someone completely
- When I could reach my wildest looks-impossible dream

What make my life feels terrible?

- When I could not fulfill my promises (yes, I did that many times :()
- When I make someone disappointed (yes, I did that many-many times :()
- When I could not stand and move forward in failures

The vows:

I will dedicate my life for giving valuable things for others
starting from little things, focusing on my circle of influence.

I will put highest effort on building the character,
because I believe, there is no such thing called achievement
unless it's performed and done on top of great character and values.

Realizing the fact that I'm a forever learning being,
the mistakes I've made should not be forgotten.
The mistakes will leave trails that form my learning curve,
and the curve should have an upward opening.

Where Am I Today?

Setahun yang lalu
Kerja di Bandung, mengerjakan large & heavy project, very frustrating, but gave me a lot of lessons.

Dua tahun yang lalu
Ditugaskan ke Bali, mengerjakan my first large project, very tiring, but fun.

Tiga tahun yang lalu
Mengesampingkan dulu sekolah, mencari sumber penghasilan, karena terkena financial catastroph.

Empat tahun yang lalu
Mengerjakan tugas akhir, bercita2 membuat software computational fluid dynamics.

Lima tahun yang lalu
Kuliah, banyak ngulang, karena nggak serius.

Sepuluh tahun yang lalu
Masih SMA, bercita-cita lulus UMPTN. Lebih baik bolos sekolah, daripada bolos bimbel.

Is it better than the same day a year ago? two years ago? five years ago?
Is it better or worse?
If it were worse, what should I do to improve it?
If it were better, did I do optimum efforts?

Should I say: Happy New Year? I don't like saying that words.
Because new year is nothing, it's just a number.
The only meaningful thing I got: it's a good moment to reflect the life and plan the future

Lessons of the year
- It's OK to fail, you will learn a lot from them. No need to be ashamed of. Admit your failure.
- It takes a great courage to be a leader, making decision based on imperfect information,
and facing the consequences if it were wrong.

Waduh, gue sibuk banget nih. Biasanya sih nggak sesibuk ini.

Lagi kepikiran tahun baru. Kayaknya bakalan dihabiskan di depan komputer lagi. Ada kerjaan baru datang, boanyak banget, dan tahun baru gue kemungkinan besar jadi korban (lagi).

Gue lagi aral. Aduh..celaka...Aduh...
