This day I didn’t know exactly how much time I spent for my research. I felt to always connect with my laptop trying to finish my paper draft. I planned that before long holidays it will be done, so I can enjoy with my family then. Even the target is really written in my mind but I try to make my self happy doing that thing because I feel passionate.
I have future plan of my research, so after now research is done I will continue to another topics that is still related. It’s like puzzle. I plann that someday I will finish that puzzle. Then I can go to another big things. For the last, remember that passion is something that can optimize your energy to spend more time in there. So, find your passion.
This evening I played badminton in a badminton dome at Antapani. This was second time in this Ramadhan. This chance was different because I still have sick, have an influenza since friday. I tried to take a rest more through sleeping and also took little jogging last evening but I am still not fit enough. Maybe the virus is stronger than I ever imagined.
Taking sport on the way before iftar makes my body fells so light. I have just had a dinner with meat hoping that it can stimulate my body to be fit so that my influenza will go away. After this, I will take a bath then do praying.
I hope tomorrow I will be actually fit so I can finish all of my jobs.
This time is second chance for me to have coffee time at Sulawah. Last night I went here. Like usual, I am here accompanied by laptop. I have been working since several minutes ago. The fu*king paper I have must be finished, its target is tomorrow but I don’t know it will finish or not. Because I have a lot of jobs now, it’s hard for me to allocate special time to do research. There was many distraction when start writing paper because in the same time I must do another two jobs. I think its hard but I have been doing like this thing since two years ago.
When I had dinner a hour ago, I read an article in some WhatsApp group telling about the power of self confidence by optimizing our power more than our weekness. I have been doing many things but all will be useless if I always blame other people. Keep working, keep positive without feeling that you are one and only is true, others are wrong. The best human is always think positive, talk less do more.
Remember that sometime you will memorize the moments that you spending more time to work. You have less time to take a rest and hard to you getting your future love. Enjoy your every single second of your life !
Finally, don’t miss this Ramadhan kareem to close to your God !
When you have a dream, problems will welcome you making you to rethink again and revise it. One thing you must do is to stay focus.
Believe in yourself that you can do it.
And your dream will come true.
Most people I met want to work less burden. Going to work, tapping finger print, working, and going home. No more skill upgraded. Like as machine, working under command. When leader orders something, they will do it less happily. But when the salary comes, their face looks very happy. They plans to buy something even just asking because their salary is mainly for credits.
This is the life of mostly workers. They are paid with some money because their works. No innovation rises because of fear to work with more load. One main thing they like is working lazily with much money earned. “Every thing is about money” is their tagline of life. Don’t say about the meaning of life, the important thing is only money. Happy life is having much money.
Ok, you decide to be not like them. You work is to improve or help an institution to be better starting from your work field. Even finally you are in condition that many people dislike you. This is lyfe, white or black will be have enemy. But you will always be a winner because you are not lie to yourself. You always say and act the truth.
Your are young. So every work you do now is an exercise. It is usual when you get some problems. Just do it, and go ahead !
Suddenly a good proverb came to my mind “Color your self”. Then I was imagined to revise my profile description on my social media such as instagram. I rethink again that it is not necessary, it is enough to write down it here, in this blog. This beautiful statement rised after I heard so much story from an employee that she had just rob last monday. He told chronology of the story detailly. I just listened and sometimes some words came from my mouth giving a sympathy. In the end conversation, I advised him to enrich “sedekah”.
What’s lesson of the accident experienced by him ? Here I will tell to you …
Six thefts stoled his wealth that consist of 40s luxury watch (approximately 100 millions rupiah), DLSR camera, CCTV recorder, and .. (I forget). So, he lost so much money because of this. I knew he is an ordinary employee that hard to spend much money, maybe he had some business or his wife also work with more salary. The question then is why does he collects many expensive watches ? From this, we know that money (associated with expensive things) is everything for him. His life is dedicated much more for money. How pity he is.
Maybe, he is sample for many Indonesian people. Oppositely, for me money is not every thing even every thing needs money. When we always think about money, we are not free. Last night, I discussed with a shop owner about philosophy of life. For us, to be freedom, minimumly we have two : knowledge number one and money number two. Money is not enough, if we are stupid.
So what’s the proverb above means ?. Don’t ever tired to learn, “stay hungry, stay foolish”, said Steve Jobs.
Concentration is not easy, in particular when you work remotely with long deadline in front. Initially you believe so badly that you can finish the work only three hours but in reality you can’t. You need more time because your focus is dictracted by many things. For example, you get an idea then you continue to write. Only several minutes you write, but suddenly random thinking rise such as checking social media. You scroll timeline or new feeds rising that spend double time or more. Or you suddenly listen to the musics or watching video on Youtube then hard to come back to work. I recognise that working remote like this is not easy because one and only your enemy is your self. You will win if you can control your self.
