The small things in life in a few paragraphs and snapshots

The Quote

on June 2, 2013

Hello 🙂

How is everyone doing? I hope you are all well and happy.

I am currently away for an assignment in Yogyakarta, a region on the south coast of Central Java. Life is still a swinging pendulum and I have decisions to make. It has been quite tough for me dealing with some challenging people. But it made me learn one important thing, which Benjamin Franklin said perfectly and I quote:

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

It has inspired me to be a leader that always keeps that in mind. I have made a promise, and you are all my witnesses, that I will never leave out anyone who works with and for me in any team. I will definitely give anybody a chance to try and make mistakes along the way. I can deal with mistakes, but not with fear of trying. On the other hand, I can deal with discipline, corrective feedback or even negative feedback, but not with being left out of a team. It is really not a nice feeling.

Anyway, this morning I woke up early to catch sunrise on top of Borobudur temple. Unfortunately, the weather was not cooperative and it was a cloudy morning. But, I still took a few snapshots to share with you. They’re okay, not as glorious as a perfect sunrise, but okay.

So, here are the photos. Have a great week ahead and the term “a team player” means you get involved and get people involved. This age is the era of collaboration. Superheros only exist in comics and even they collaborate. Remember The Avengers and X-Men?
