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?

A writer wanna be

Setelah membaca cukup banyak buku baik hard copy, ebooks dan audiobooks, saya merasa mulai naik kelas mau menulis buku.

Untuk mendukung usaha saya menulis buku, saya baru saja membeli 3 buku tentang how to write, how to become a writer dan how to publish.

Dalam salah satu buku yang saya baca, dijelaskan supaya kita menetapkan dulu berapa kata yang mau ditulis dalam 6 bulan. Misalnya 58,000 kata dalam 6 bulan (168 hari). Dari situ berarti saya harus bisa menulis sebanyak 346 kata per hari atau sekitar 2422 kata per minggu.

Dalam buku tersebut dikatakan ada 3 faktor yang mempengaruhi sukses tidaknya menjadi seorang penulis yaitu Talent, Luck, dan Discipline.

Dari ketiga hal penting tersebut, hanya satu hal yang bisa saya kontrol yaitu Discipline. Jadi saya musti focus ke hal Discipline maka kedua Talent dan Luck akan mendukung kesuskesan saya.

Semoga saya bisa menulis sebuah buku dalam 6 bulan.

Apa yang menjadi plan aktifitas kita sekarang?

Reached the 1 percent

Pada hari Minggu (25 Oct 2015), setelah persiapan dengan method FIRST selama 12 minggu saya berhasil menyelesaikan jarak 42.195K dalam race Fulll Marathon di event The Jakarta Marathon 2015.

Saya berhasil menyelasaikan race dalam waktu 7:38:53. Sudah lewat 38 menit dari cut off time ( COT). Puji Tuhan nama saya masih dalam list finishers di urutan 1394.

Saya telah mulai lari sejak July 2012 dan mulai persiapan buat Full Marathon sejak 2014, dimana pada event The Jakarta Marathon 2014, saya gagal menjadi finisher dan DOB di Km24.

Menarik nya pada race tahun ini, saya mulai recovery di Km24 setelah cidera mulai Km16. Sejak Km 16-24, saya terseok-seok. Dari Km24-37, saya mulai jalan normal. Dan sejak Km37-42.195, saya bisa lari karena merasa takut akan disweep panitia di COT 7 jam.

Dengan usaha dan faith kepada yang Maha Kuasa, saya bisa menyelesaikan FM dengan finished strong. 🙂

Ada dua pengalaman saya dalam event marathon ini dimana Allah yang saya percaya menyatakan kepada saya bahwa saya akan finished FM tahun ini. Seminggu sebelum race day, Allah yang saya percayai menunjukkan dalam mimpi bahwa saya akan bisa menyelesaikan race FM tahun ini. Dan pada saat race, saya kembali diingatkan oleh Allah yang saya percaya, lewat problem pada GPS jam saya, dengan angka kombinasi 264 yang selalu mengingatkan saya pada hadirat Tuhan.

Jadi kesimpulan race saya tahun ini di event The Jakarta Marathon 2015, kalau bukan karena kasih karunia Tuhan Yesus, saya pasti tidak dapat menyelesaikannya.

Praise the Lord.
