Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish...

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish...

I heard this from Steve Jobs Stanford Graduation Speech... He claimed to have read it from The Whole World Catalog by Stewart Brand...

Steve described a photograph on the back cover of final issue of the Whole World Catalog
"an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous" and below that photograph... "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish..."

A message to live your life to the fullest... make it meaningful... and do the best you can...
A kick in the butt for me personally... to get out of my comfort zone... to stop complaining and actually bust my ass and do better!

Peace

Saturday...

Isn't Saturday the best? The end of the week when you can relax... spend time for your self with your loved ones... just the time to rejuvenate your energy after a long week of hard work...
Well, my Saturdays are always half day of work... and every week I meet with my staff reviewing the week's progress... This week is no different, except I'm trying something new...
You see, Indonesian workforce has one major problem... Ethics... Skill wise we may be competitive but ethics wise we're far from standard... One thing that stands out to me is their sense of responsibility is so very lacking... They don't care if they don't complete tasks given to them.. which always makes me disappointed... I'm having a hard time relying on them and delegating works to them...
So my dad came up with this idea... he gave me a book... in Chinese it's called Di Zi Gui... 弟子规 ... It's a set of personal character building teachings by Confucius... It teaches us to become "students of life" ... it teaches us the correct attitude, correct behavior, and the correct life ethics... I decided to give it a try... Because I understands to really change or at least build a character you have to start from the very basic... and this book covers the basic of our human ethical standards...
Then, there I was the book on my left hand and I started preaching... The first teachings is about our devotion to our parents... how we should be thankful of our parents, respect them, honor them, appreciate them and most importantly love them... It got emotional... Confucius teachings about parents are deep and really hit the nail in the head... it makes us think back of the inappropriate things we've done as children... and the things we haven't done for our parents... Some of my staff got carried away... they cried... I mean... adult males in their 20's crying... I couldn't agree more that the words from the book is really meaningful... I even had goosebumps while I was reading it to them...
After I finished... my newest staff shared his experience on how he washed his mother's feet during Christmas last year... and drank the water from that washing to ask for his mother's forgiveness in whatever he may have done wrong to the family... Some didn't take his story seriously but I thanked him for sharing and told the rest of the group to really pay attention to what he had shared... Sometimes we forget... parents are the only one in our lives that would never ask for anything in return... and they are the only one that would always prioritize our purpose before theirs... I told them as I reflected to myself that I myself have not done enough and still infuriates my parents from time to time... I ended the session by reminding them to not take today's session granted... those who still has the time and opportunity... make sure you go to your parents... ask for their forgiveness and promise yourself to be devoted children...
In my point of view... today's session showed some sign of hope... that I can change or preach Ethics to them... given the right teachings and guidance... I'll continue to teach them starting from this book and as I go along I'll find other working ethics book, life ethics, and others...
In the evening I had planned to meet with my girlfriend and friends to hangout... unfortunately I had some unexpected guests... Two persons from Belitung (my home town) District Education Board came to Jakarta out of the sudden because their to other destination was canceled... so they decided to call me to accompany them... I ended up taking them to dinner and driving them to the hotel... With Jakarta's traffic, my weekend officially started at 8:30 pm local time... I joined my girlfriend and friends as they were karaokeing... I had one song and went home... My girlfriend was exhausted... she had low tolerance of loud music and cigarettes... Karaoke clubs are loud and full of cigarettes... bad choice to spend your weekend... but it's not my fault... I didn't plan the evening... :p We separate ourselves from the group as we went home earlier...
So there goes my Saturday... tomorrow morning I will go on biking my parents... So that'll be interesting...
Peace

Reborn...

Sigit's blog is reborn with new layout... new and updated posts which will be updated regularly (I'll force myself to update)...
I just feel like writing and letting my feelings out lately... I revisited my blog yesterday... and all those writings and memories flashed back to me...
Those times were the greatest... even though I had my ups and downs but those are unforgettable memories... The best time of my life when I had my highest confidence level... being myself... carefree... and full of energy...
Things have changed now... I'm working... busting my ass off... trying to settle down...
I'm doing two jobs at the same time... my own family business and the whole association partnership in education business...
Maybe it's me who views it all wrong but what I've gone through lately has taken the best out of me...
I feel down... my self-esteem is at the lowest point ever... and I'm not being myself... I can't do anything right... I overthink everything and ended up always making the wrong decision...
I may give my blog a new life... but GOD do I wish I can be reborn... I want to be spirited as I used to be... full of motivation... full of dreams...
Anyways... it's a new blog alright... I just wish it's going to be a new me too!
Peace

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus - Your Guardian Angel lyrics

When I see your smile
Tears roll down my face I can't replace
And now that I'm stronger I have figured out
How this world turns cold and it breaks through my soul
And I know I'll find deep inside me I can be the one

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

It's ok. It's ok. It's ok.

Seasons are changing
And waves are crashing
And stars are falling all for us
Days grow longer and nights grow shorter
I can show you I'll be the one

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

'cause you're my, you're my, my true love, my whole heart
Please don't throw that away
'cause I'm here for you
Please don't walk away and
Please tell me you'll stay, stay, yeah
Whoa-oh, stay, whoa

Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I'll be ok
Though my skies are turning gray, (gray)

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

Stephen Speaks - Out Of My League

It's her hair and her eyes today
that just simply take me away, and the feeling that I'm falling further in love
makes me shiver but in a good way.
All the times I have sat and stared, as she thought fully thumbs through her hair.
And she purses her lips, bats her eyes and she plays with me, sitting there slack jawed and nothing to say.
'Cause I love her with all that I am, and my voice shakes along with my hands.
'Cause she's all that I see, and she's all that I need, and I'm out of my league once again.
It's a masterful melody, when she calls out my name to me.
As the world spins around her she laughs rolls her eyes and I feel like I'm falling but it's no surprise.
'Cause I love her with all that I am, and my voice shakes along with my hands.
'Cause it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea, but I rather be here than on land.
Yes, she's all that I see, and she's all that I need, and I'm out of my league once again.
It's her hair and her eyes todaythat just simply take me away,
and the feeling that I'm falling further in lovemakes me shiver but in a good way.
All the times I have sat and stared, as she thought fully thumbs through her hair.
As she purses her lips, bats her eyes and she plays with me, sitting there slack jawed and nothing to say.
'Cause I love her with all that I am, and my voice shakes along with my hands.
'Cause it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea, but I rather be here than on land.
Yes, she's all that I see, and she's all that I need, and I'm out of my league once again.

Well ladies and gentlemen, with a bit of my narcism, allow me to present to you that on that day too, the incredible Sigit Angdrew was born.
If I could be granted one wish for my bday... I would wish for everyone's happiness... we are living on a very challenging world nowadays... I wish that the bad would turn good and the good would be better...
There are those who are having love problems, there are those who are having family problems, there are those who are having work problems, and there are those who are having difficulty finding peace...
Thus, I pray for blessings upon all of us... Bless Y'all!
