Gratitude

Why do I live? Has this question ever came to your mind? It come across my mind multiple times, and today, I want to share it. I wrote this article in the train on my way back to Jakarta. Train is one of my favorite place where you can reflect yourself 🙂. I come to this thought as the officer in Bandung Station, give salute when the train was leaving. Right after I see that, I want to capture this moment, but I were not prepared to take the picture of this moment. Still, I give a thought, and I have 2 questions: What is the point of them in doing that!? Are they feel that their role is important? …

The Purpose of My Life

Recently some people around me doubting about their purpose of life and it made me think about mine as well. It’s a tricky question why most of people want to live despite their living situation. I look at my surrounding in office and around my living place. Today, right after I step out from the fence, I see old man walk with carrying trash cart without any smile drawn on his face. On my way to office, I see numbers of kids ride bicycle and man around his 30th pedaling a bakery cart with happy face. While waiting in front of the elevator, a man in a phone talk about marketing strategy to rebound the business and inside the elevator, …

Long Time No See

It’s been several months since my last post. Many things’s been changed since then. Today l’m writing this post by using my brand new iPad. Just today I felt that tablet have an unique yet useful features.Yes, it has pen stylus capable. It’s been very long since tablet is invented. Back to 7 years ago, tablet is only a mini computer with barely convenient touch screen. The first iPad is still quite bulky and heavy. It might be good to play “Angry Bird” with a big screen back then. It also might good enough to read e-book. but still, at that time most of the book is using PDF format which sometimes give very small font and the text sometime …

How do life experiences shape our values?

We all experience life, but we don’t all live life for experience. I used to simply exist. I used to take what was given to me, positive or negative. I believed to be the way of this life. However, I stumbled across some interesting wisdom in a book called: Man’s Search for Meaning. It allowed my existential thinking to be brought to the surface, and it gave me permission to be me and take control of my life. Then a question surfaced from this new understanding: How do my life experiences shape my life? And Can I determine how I will experience life all together? I got some interesting answers from these questions. Here are the 3 ways life experiences …

Should Speak out or Hold Back?

When we feel uncomfortable about something should we say it or should we remain quiet? So many of us feel like we have to suppress our thoughts and opinions and that’s not healthy because we don’t feel good on the inside. Yet, if we voice out loud what we think and feel it really may come across as offensive or confrontational. Communication isn’t easy, especially when we want to remain true to ourselves and speak out yet at the same time we want to keep the peace and not rock the boat. But as with everything there is always a middle path, a place where we’re able to be completely authentic to ourselves yet at the same time completely aware …

If You Want to Do What You Love

“When you find something that you’re ready to become the best in the world at, you’ve found your passion.” I think that one of the biggest problems that people run into when they’re young especially is that they don’t actually know what they want, but they want to rush forward, they want to do something, they want to get big now, they want to be famous, they want to be rich. And because of that they pick a path and they go hard down that path. But it’s not necessarily something that fills them with joy. And so, what people need to focus on is what gives you more energy than it takes? And the only way you can know …

Be a Person of Your Word

Cause here’s the definition of success, choose what you want, get up everyday, and walk towards your outcome. Do the 3 most important things, if you do that, you can’t fail. You’re gonna get knocked into the mud, get thrown into the brambles. You’re gonna have down times and you’re gonna have high times. But if you keep getting back up then walking towards your purpose, you can not fail. What you can fail is by not having a purpose, being aimless, wandering through life and taking what they give you. You know, if you don’t choose anything then you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit. We only learn from the failures, we don’t learn from …
