Lantas Harus Bagaimana

Lantas Bagaimana?  - Created By: eva tarida
 Waktu masih konyol dulu - yang sekarang ini jelas sudah banyak hilang, menurutku - :) Aku doyan banget main tebak-tebakan. Dan hebatnya, aku berhasil melemparkan banyak soal yang sukar dijawab. 
Kadang terpikir juga, ini asli pertanyaanku yang mantap, atau para penikmat soal tebakanku yang kurang bergaul di dunia tebak-tebakan ya? hahahaaa...

Ga Penting.

Sempat ada satu ketika tebakan ini aku ajukan di sekelompok orang, yang rupanya aku ingat ada beberapa orang yang sudah pernah menerima tebakan ini dariku. Spontan aku beri peraturan lisan "Yang sudah tahu diam! Jangan ikutan jawab! Yang nggak ngerti, berarti bego deehhh" - sambil haha hihi tentunya -
Sepintas nggak ada yang salah, dong dengan peraturan lisan nan otoriterku itu. Dan dengan sukses aku mengibuli beberapa orang lagi dengan tebakan-tebakan kerenku. 
Riuh tawa memenuhi kelompok kecil itu begitu kuungkap jawabannya. Beberapa teman yang sudah pernah jadi korban tebakan itu pun ikut tertawa keras dan malah ada yang berbagi pengalaman saat jadi korban.

Menarik, Kan?

Setelah itu ada yang sedikit mengganggu pikiranku. Lha, kalau peraturan tegas nan otoriter itu berbunyi demikian :  "Yang sudah tahu diam! Jangan ikutan jawab! Yang nggak ngerti, berarti bego deehhh"  Lantas, harus berbuat apa? Harus bagaimana?
Bayangkan.. Kalau seandainya kita emang nggak tahu, terus kita diam saja, nggak ikutan menjawab, bisa kan kita claim diri kita "Aku tahu kok. Cuma tadi diam aja. Pingin tahu kamu (korbannya) bisa jawab atau nggak" Nah, kalau misalnya kita di posisi yang tahu, lantas nggak bisa nyeplos gara-gara aturan itu, maka tidak ada yang salah kalau orang-orang pada berpikir "Wah, nih anak bego juga rupanya. Kaya gini aja ngga ngerti. Diem aja bisanya" Nah lho..

Yaah.. Ini cuma sekadar senang-senang berpikir dan mengajak yang lain ikutan mikir-mikir nganggur gini sih.
Cuma, kalau seandainya - seandainya - ada yang menetapkan aturan tegas nan otoriter tersebut di suatu kondisi yang dilematis... Lantas Harus Bagaimana?

A Simple Compliment

Why do I write this? Nothing but my precious experience.
Okay, let me have a bit of your spare time, and I'm sorry in advance if you have to jumping with the not-inline-texts :)

After graduated, I quit my more than a year part time job, and had a free time for around a week or two. Then, I decided to picked up the phone and call one of the offered job. Across there, the receiver was friendly, and she asked me to came by tomorrow. alright, u can see the recap of that story here.

The First thing that should be asked to me is: WHY? Why this kind a job? This one is a very new field which I never involved before. But yeah, I couldn't even answered that. Not that day, not now,or maybe not too tomorrow.

It was a bit hard for me. Well, okay I confess, very hard. You know, to work in some kinda brand new type of working, brand new job desc, and whatever, was a bit stressed me. okay, a lot!
FYI, in my 4th month working there (I was in probation for 3-6 months. Management Trainee for word), the boss called me up and said a thing and two that shocked me. I was never felt very fail before. And yes, that was the time! And I have to admitted that I wasn't very bright! And my dear boss gave me another 1month probation to prove myself. 
Thanks God, I had a super companions there, and they supported me, and helped me out to do the Priority scale - which in fact, I never did that before :D -
And guess what, in the early 2011, the boss called me up again. Not just gave me my commission, They said a very bright words to me. Compliment! Compliment because I prove myself for being better and better! And they wish a very better me for the next facing months or years :)

That day was amazing! I was super happy, and yes, more often, I can do my job well. Some sort of annoyance of course, but with a better skill of work, and a great team work, we can do it better and better and better.

Last, but not least, when my boss asked me to create a letter to our principals and customers - due to our internal gathering of 25th anniversary - with of course the flowery words for being 25 years great companions, I was a bit confuse. Well, I love writing, but a formal flowery words announcement letter was a new one :) and I wasn't planned to fail! 
So, I made it first in Bahasa Indonesia, asked for any input from my collages, and guess what I received in my email this morning after I submitted the letter to my boss?

here is her email for me -uncut- :

Dear valuable EVA
your letter is EXCELLENT!!!
thanks alot
we really are amazed with you !!=)
keep up the good work.

A simple compliment for a simple task, can just suddenly brighten my day! I bet you'll feel the same was as I did :)
So then, when we are in my boss' position, please don't ever mind to give compliment. No matter how easy the task is. We should realize that small task from us might be a big task for anyone. And a simple compliment will drive our passion more and more.


have a great work.

Where Will I Go After This?

I was having a chat someday with one of my friend. Good friend actually. We were met on college for took the same department and then we always shared the same class. Until we chose the same concentration, which made us together longer and more often.

However, am not going to have a nostalgic writings here. It's just our chatting few days ago reminded me about how our passion was. Passion about a subject, a field. We were struggling till whatever whenever wherever however, and we were kept up our best to fulfilled our passion at that time.

In the middle of the super warm chatting, she suddenly asked me "Va, do u still want to work in M field? or u just already settled with that office work?" I was stopped for a moment. Thinking. What would my answer be? A quick arguments jumped and rolled in my mind. Then I answered her "Yeah, of course that field still attracted me. But, yeah, right now, I'd love to do that when all condition is proper and the stuffs are suited" right a way she answered "hahahahahaaa.. yeah when all is suited. A very nice one. Yeah we have to re consider again and again and again..."

It was just a short chat, which made me think. Where will I go after this? keep gazing around in here, or jump in to the next better level of me? or follow the passion in me? or WHAT? geezee...
