The small things in life in a few paragraphs and snapshots

Which One Are You?

Hello, hello.

It is again the time for my weekly address. I hope everyone is in a good mood and good spirit. Summer is coming and perhaps some of you are going away for vacations or have planned to go sometime this month or next. In my part of the world, all is well. Again, it is proven fact that communication is key. Unless we live alone on a deserted island.

By the way, I am asking you for one small favour. It is not obligatory at all, you can write back if you want, but you don’t have to. Here’s the question: If you were asked to choose between being a builder/developer and an explorer, which one would you choose and why? Why I ask is because I am also thinking about it and want to know what others’ thoughts are. I think both are exciting and yet each has its disadvantages. When you are a builder, you get to build new things and take satisfaction from setting things up for other people to continue to the next level. Remember when you are on a plane, take off is the most dangerous time as well as most exhilarating. I love my take offs. On the other hand, when you are an explorer, you get to go to new places, enjoy new adventures and take satisfaction from the different adventures and experiences you find along the way. One of my favourite TV series (and movie too) is StarTrek. And one of my favourite quotes is from StarTrek:

“Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilisations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.”

It’s just awesome, isn’t it? I wanna be an explorer too! So, I do not know which to choose and which group I belong to. What about you? Which one are you?

To close this weekly note, as always, the photo of the week. Last week, I mentioned that I wanted an American Bobtail cat. So, if you see a cat like this up for adoption, please let me know πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!

The Quote

Hello πŸ™‚

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:

β€œTell 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?

Dreams

Hello, hello! πŸ˜€

How is everyone doing? All is well, I hope. I haven’t been able to write because of a few things that I needed to sort out. My life has been quite a mixture of highs and lows with a few drops of confusion.

Anyway, I got this image from my Pinterest feed and I instantly felt the urge to share it with you guys. You see, I also have dreams that need time to come true. In fact, I am in the middle of decision making process to postpone one of them for a year. I was afraid that I might lose the race against time on it. But reading this, I now feel that it can wait and it is alright to wait.

So, to end this short note, I just want to say: Hold on to your dreams.

Here’s the image. Have a fantastic weekend!
