30 Days of Genius

Hello, All.

I am back setelah mengambil waktu sejenis sabbathical untuk tidak show up selama hampir 2 bulan.

Cukup senang dan merasa bergairah kembali untuk bisa mulai menulis dalam bi-weekly blog yang saya coba tulis tiap minggu hari Tuesday dan Thursday atau saya singkat dengan TBD (Tuesday/Thursday Blog Day). 🙂

Dalam dua bulan terakhir saya disibukkan oleh 2 tender yang cukup membuat saya merasa vulnerable karena bersifat baru dan sangat challenging.

Saya juga mencoba mengisi waktu luang selabma tender tersebut dengan menonton drama serial Korea yang berjudul “Empress Ki”. Dari drama seri ini saya dapat ilham tentang bagaimana cara survive dalam peta politik pekerjaan dengan segala tricks-nya.

Dalam beberapa hari terkahir, melalui blog Seth Godin, saya masuk dalam arena Creative Live 30 Days of Genius karya photographer terkenal Chase Jarvis.

http://www.creativelive/30DaysOfGenius

Dalam Creative Live 30 Days of Genius ini, Chase Jarvis mem-post secara gratis tentang interview dengan orang-orang yang bisa menginsipirasi hidup saya dan kita sekalian tentunya selama 30 hari (sekali lagi for free, hanya perlu sign up). Big Thanks, Chase!!!

Kebetulan dalam Creative Live 30 Days of Genius hari ini, Chase Jarvis meng-interview Sir Richard Branson yang bertajuk: “Screw it. Just do it!”. Dalam interview tersebut, Sir Richard Branson mengungkapkan betapa pentingnya “Play” (aktivitas bermain) dalam hidup ini. Beliau juga menganjurkan kita untuk mau banyak-banyak travelling untuk membuka wawasan dan idea baru untuk memulai jadi entrepreneur. Last but not least key take away yang bisa saya ambil dari interview dengan Sir Richar Branson adalah “Ambillah risk dengan berani, tapi berusahalah mati-matian supaya risk itu tidak akan terjadi sebisa mungkin!”

Apakah kita cukup berani mengambil risk dalam hidup kita?

Try many new things and make as much failures as possible

Diawal tahun ini, dari Seth Godin blog, saya dapat info dari Skillshare tentang online class mengenai Super Lerning oleh seorang anak muda bernama Jonathan Levi.

Dari class Super Learning, saya dikenalkan dengan Magnetic Memory-nya Anthony Metivier, Word Memory Champion Joshua Foer dan Fluent in 3 months oleh seorang Polyglot bernama Benny Lewis yg bisa sedikitnya fluent 7 bahasa.

Dalam buku Benny Lewis yang berjudul “Fluent in 3 Months”, kita disarankan untuk mencoba banyak hal-hal baru dalam hidup kita yang singkat ini dan rela mengalami sebanyak mungkin kegagalan supaya bisa sukses.

Karena kesuksesan adalah seberapa baik dan cepat kita bangkit dari kegagalan. Jadi kalau kita bisa bangkit dari banyak kegagalan maka kita akan mendapatkan banyak juga kesuksesan.

Bagaimana sikap kita dalam menghadapi kegagalan?

Banjamin Franklin

Alasan saya menulis tentang Benjamin Franklin dalam blog saya kali ini karena setelah menbaca cukup banyak buku-buku, ada beberapa penulis terkenal merekomendasikan untuk membaca biography dari Benjamin Franklin.

Nah, saya menuruti anjuran dari para penulis terkenal tersebut. Dimulai dari menyelesaikan buku “The Life of Benjamin Franklin” karya Samuel Griswold dan sekarang saya sedang membaca buku “The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin” (Dover Thrift Edition) yang merupakan karya Benjamin Franklin sendiri.

Berikut sekilas summary tentang sosok Benjamin Franklin:

Lahir di Boston, Massachusetts pada tanggal 17 January 1706 dan wafat di Philadelphia, Pennsylvania pada tanggal 17 April 1790 dalam usia 84 tahun.

Seorang renowned polymath, leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, Freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesmen, dan diplomat.

Sebagai scientist, beliau adalah seorang figur besar dalam era American Enlightment dan sejarah dari fisika, untuk penemuan dan teorinya tentang listrik.

Sebagai inventor, beliau dikenal sebagai penemu lightning rod, bifocals, dan Franklin stove.

Benjamin Franklin mem-fasilitasi banyak organisasi civic termasuk Philadelphia fire department dan Philadelphia university.

Ternyata Benjamin Franklin adalah seorang calon independent dalam kiprah politiknya di Amerika Serikat.

Istri beliau bernama Deborah Red dan mereka memiliki tiga orang anak bernama: William, Francis, dan Sarah.

Dalam buku autobiograophy-nya, Benjamin Franklin menyebutkan ada 13 virtues, yaitu:

  1. Temperance: Eat not to dullness, drink not to elevation.
  2. Silence:  Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.
  3. Order: Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.
  4. Resolution: Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.

My 2015 Annual Review: Lessons What Went Well and What Needs Improvement

Chris Guillebeau on his blog “The Art of Non-Conformity” every end of year will write his Annual Review.

Follow good things Chris has done, every year I set aside a long block of time, typically the better part of the week, to look back at the year that’s ending and look ahead to the next.

And so we begin the 2015 Annual Review

I try to live an active life and pursue a lot of different challenges and adventures. Pretty much every time I begin the review, I think, “What a crazy year it’s been!” J

In year 2015, I set with a big optimistic mental note, even tough there was still a noisy sound in my head that said I was worry to face the year.

While I was sitting down in a bus commuting from home to my office writing this notes, I want to share that I am feeling super excited. I am thinking of all the good things happened in my life with all the achievements. As usual, negative noise in my head also came, saying that I wasn’t really fulfilled my target achievement this year.

What Went Well in 2015

This year, I managed to finished my first Full Marathon by conquering the super hot The Jakarta Marathon 2015. Even tough I passed the cut off time by 38 minutes, luckily Iwas still registered as the Full Marathon finisher at the official web site of the race.

I also managed to complete reading 49 books in one year. I was following Seth Godin advise that “if you read book 20 minutes per day, every day without skipping a day, you can finished 52 books in a year.” And I have proofing that this advise to be true.

On 28 February 2015, while treated as a newbie in running community, EID Runners, an official running community in EID, which just founded in 30 May 2014, has managed to held a fun run race event sponsored by Pocari Sweat.

One year after its establishments, EID Runners members reached 130+ hence treated as the biggest sport community in EID.

On 29 October 2015, again, EID Runners, as the newly established sports community in EID, obtained an honor from EID Sports Competition 2015 committee to held men and women estafet running race.

What Needs Improvement in 2015

While participating for a Full Marathon race, I need to finish before the cut off time hence I can be treated as an official Full Marathon finisher.

On reading books, I need to make summary and review of the book I just finished reading.

For EID Runners, with big members (130+), we hope most of our members will spare his/her time to be active in participating EID Runners events.

Thank you All for the big achievement in 2015 and lets plan more success in 2016.

What is our 2015 review?
