For me toilet is one of best place to reinvent ideas. I ofter read my book there or also try to deliver speech. I hate wasting time by doing something that have no benefit for my self. Somedays I got a clue for my project there. I forgot exactly about what the name of project. Reading book or paper in toilet makes me more concentrated so my reading becomes relatively faster than usual. Someday when I have a home, I want to make my toilet comfortable for reading like managing it’s air circulation and choosing seat-kloset (kloset duduk) of course.
I think that’s all, I have just finished my beol :p
I have just done weekly worship : jumatan. I did it in masjid Salman ITB. The khotib was Prof. Hermawan, board member of Salman and also professor of ITB. He delivered a meaningful message in his speech. I point one : the ultimate freedom is not we do everything we will but if we are close to God, Allah SWT. Religion looks like a boundary because there many things that regulate our life but it bring us to the ultimate freedom : happiness in life. When we do believe in God, there is no reason to fear with some body, to do good things to achieve better society like to maximize potential or intellectual to do somethings for human rights. The most valuable people in the eye of God is when they are keeping their idealisms as a Moslem by doing somethings have impact for humanity.
This afternoon, I watched a carnaval celebrating Independence day of Indonesia. It took place not far from my indekost in South Sekeloa. Unfortunatelly I didn’t bring my mobile phone to capture this moment. Anyway, I wonder If I have a family : a wife and a child, it will be hugh interesting. I can smile together, bring them to this “cheap show”. Maybe some day, it will.
The question is, with whom you will get married ? This is big secret I think …
Since last week, I have been having new office for my project work : Writing book of startup journey. The office is Pak Djoksar’s office in Aeronotics Engineering ITB. I chose this place is to concentrate doing my project because of its silence makes me have power to think deeply. Unfortunatelly, that is still expectation, the real is I am hard to concentrate because of many constrains come suddently like sleepy, doing another job, and this : writing this random. I just make me routiny coming here every saturday in the name responsibility. I have taken a contract so I must do it well.
Why I receipt Pak Djoksar’s offer ? No other reason but I like somebody whose startup venture technology-based. This work is second part of my thesis. Hopefully, next week should be better progress.
It’s difficult choise for me today : attending my friend’s graduation day or doing my job deadline. Finally, I choose the second one. The reason is my job now is five projects with four project must have progress every week. That’s not include with another semi-voluentering job like writing paper for national conference, being advisor for my intellectual group, and engaged in limited revitalized group ( last two you will not understand, hehe). Plus one, being committee in my friend wedding party. That makes me having no holiday. Like this day, I still working. After spending one and half hour in my lecturer’s room in FTMD, I am heading to Yellow Truck coffee. As you know, if you spend all your time doing different job in one place you will be boring. This is my I choose ‘nomaden’. In campus I have four office ; rotunda, lecturer’s room in SBM, lecturer’s room in SBM, and meeting room in PAU. This year makes me deeply busy. Hopefully, I do my best.
Last day, I met my two undergraduates mate in some coffee shop. We discuss about many things especially about data. There are several key points of our discussion :
- Now its time for data. It means that many things especially business needs data as its basic to grow.
- The key of business success is deeply know about marketing.
- Market of Indonesia is different with America’s because of its behavior in buying products. Label of products on the website not enougth to make sure people can ok with it, they need to chat.
- Maybe 5 years later, many mals in Indonesia will be closed because of market behaviors that tend to buy online than offline. This is being happened in America in nowdays.
- The essensial of business is trade or demand side.
- Everything use data so learn it. You can learn with Phyton.
The is no late to learn, so just learn.
This afternoon when I had my coffee in some shop, I read then wathed something funny broadcasted in facebook. It was OM TELOLET OM. This idiom came from a group of children in some where (I guess in Central Java) that ask bus driver to voice its horn. OM refers to bus driver and TELOLET is voice of bus horn. Twitter made it viral and was world trending topic. Many public figures from around the world tweeted about it. I think it likes a joke that make us smile and laugh temporary. It can subtitute opinion war in social media recently. Here I learn that HAPPINESS IS SIMPLE. Thank you guys !
