This afternoon I sent a paper draft to my colleague (he is lecturer relatively junior). It means that now I can do another paper which is part of my PhD research topic. I am interested in Regional Innovation System (RIS) so my paper will be about that. In the begining I will finish my opinion still related to that topic this night.
Even I still have remaining three papers but it doesn’t work well because my colleague (he is lecturer too) is busy with their works. I wait for his invitation to revise the papers. He has high standard in writing a paper, unfutunatelly he has not good enough in time management. I recognise that he is very good in understanding something in particular about our research topics. He is opposite with my previous collegue.
I should prepare for my next plan. This must be first priority. Let’s continue back to work.
Since last long holiday, I have been drafting for my PhD proposal. This day I met my research-mate to give some suggestions. His feedback was worth for me. I am on the way to revise it in a coffee shop. I am very interested for the topic because it is so close with my master thesis. I know that to make scholarships deal with our proposal is nit easy, but I believe I can pass all this things. First step, I complete my draft till this weekend then revise it litlle by little in the next days later. This year I have been so busy that beside having several research jobs, I have some managerial jobs too. I must manage my time better than before. Another important job, I try to focus looking for a future love as my mother asked for.
I am so confident that I can make all that jobs done. It is all about a value I believe that working to help people make your life meaningful and excited. Watch this video, it will describe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKlx1DLa9EA
I don’t decide yet to what university will I apply for my future PhD. I still think that scandinavian countries will be my choice. Doctoral program is about research with limited class inside so I must familiar with it. I highly interest in innovation and entrepreneurship with business school as its faculty. I have been doing two research pararelly so I must allocate my time proportional. That is not included another routine job. As you know I am an employee right now with work time 7.30 am to 4.30 pm every day. So, my work load is so huge.
Another work is to think about her every day, even I limit to communicate with her to save my heart to not deeply love her. Love can make you crazy, can’t it ?
With this high workload, I always keep my optimism that someday I will be part of one of outstanding business school in Europe, Norwegian Business School. One word “Bismillah”.
Yesterday a lecturer taught me how to analyze data using SPSS. I firstly used this program two years ago just to process simple data by assistance from a book. It was not so in-depth. Yesterday was different. The collection of data was many more. Because I must learn this new program, my working time has been increasing. My another research is in the finishing. Working for two research in the same time is not easy. Because those all are my jobs so I must finish, no excuse.
One interesting is learning this program is a entry point for me to learn how to use rich data in the future with high complexity. Long time ago I joined R course. I hope I can use it in the future. This time is to master SPSS. Enjoy the work guys !
After writing chapter of results (findings), tomorrow is time for analyzing. This day was tough day as usual even not like yesterday. But, I can conquer it by focusing in writing paper. Anothers are side jobs even they looked so hard. For me, management is like a toy. Managing people is a good thing, I really like it. I hope tomorrow I can wake up before 6 am so I can continue my paper work and have jogging half hour like this morning.
Yesterday I sucessfully registrated Full Marathon (FM) held by Pocari Swet on August this year. This morning was my first day for its preparation. May FM brings motivation for me to routiny running more than 5 k (half hour) every day. I dream someday I can join international marathon event in London or New York, don’t I ?
This month (since last week exactly) I have been having a sit-in class in doctoral program SBM. The class is about research methodology that is very important for me in doing research. Remembering last class that was taught by my research boss, it was very different with the condition when I was a master. He didn’t just teach how to do research by a method like this, you must do A, B,C, etc, but he gave philosophy behind it. For me it was very interesting and very helpful especially for my on-going research.
Tomorrow I will learn grounded theory. I must read several papers before class (read : this night). I have gotten several materials, I must compile them in one paper. Let’s work !
This month I must work for two papers that I do parallelly. So after I do a alot for a topic I like, I must switch to another topic that I like but little. This is work guys, so you must be a professional. This morning I contacted my boss to make schedule on friday afternoon this week to discuss about the future of our paper. I plan to finish all jobs with him (two papers) before April 2019 as my way to celebrate two years working with him 🙂
I plan to focus on topic about technology management especially related to technology-based company and also institution that generate that type of company such as university. My goal is to understand map of technology-based industry in developing countries like Indonesia (non-digital and digital) so I can do something (by becoming part of Government or entrepreneur) with substantial works in the future.
My dream is to make Indonesia great with science and technology. It is heard wow, isn’t it ? I don’t care, let’s back to work guys !
