Choices

Everyday I'm kinda stuck in this "choice" thing. It seems just a trivial matter. The choice is about which route should I take to go home? For me, it's not a trivial matter. Why? Let me tell you the background story.

In some previous posts, I think I've told you that I have a new job in a consultant. The office located in Ampera Street. This is not a very well known street, so that I just tell everyone that asks that I work in Pejaten. The first route that I took to reach this place is via commuter line to Pasar Minggu Station and then ride the public transportation car no. 36 to Ampera Street. It feels so far from home. It takes 2 hours to go to the office and 2.5 - 3 hours to go back home!! It seriously drives me crazy!! Believes it or not, this route even makes my emotion unstable in the first month of working! Like I've spend too much time on the road!

Finally several months later, actually when I got back after my training in Yogyakarta, my coworker who lived in Parungpanjang found another route. And thanks God, IT IS faster than the first route. This second route is also via commuter line to Kebayoran Station, and then walk to the end of fly over from Ciledug and ride the 614 Kopaja to Ampera Street. This second route can save time about 30 minutes. And I think it's awesome! This become my favourite route! However, there are weaknesses like the waiting time until 614 appeared is almost an hour at it worst! I'm so lucky when I just need to wait for 5 minutes. The average waiting time is about 15 - 20 minutes. The other weakness is that the route pass some traffic points and it's getting worst everyday. But the riding time is so fast when there are no traffics. That's why I love it.

Those are the brief explanations about the routes I need to choose. When I go to work, I always take the second route. But, when it's time to go back from work, these choices are haunting me. Which route should I take so that I could arrived earlier? Usually I take the second route, but when the traffics are so heavy. It also drives me crazy. I regret and it feels like "I should have take the first route". But now I'm writing this post because I regret taking the first choice and I feel that I should have took the second route instead. At 20:40 I'm still on my way to Tanah Abang! Oh my God, I'm frustrated! I really should have took the second route instead! I probably should have been in commuter line to Serpong already!

But again, the choice has been made. I've already got the effects of the choice I've made. One of my way to relieve this kinda regret is to remember that I've made the choice and I should have accepted ALL the consequences and accepted that I will arrived later because of it.

You see, this is just a glimpse of the "choice" thing. In fact, it happens everyday. From the smallest scale to the biggest scale that can affect your life. You need to think carefully before making a choice, what will await you if you took the choice. You should think about the probability too (in this case of mine). You also need to listen to your heart. Apparently it will lead you to the right choice. It made me less regretful when I listen to my heart. Although actually it was not the best choice, but I felt at ease.

Lastly, it kinda difficult for me to explain in English, but I'm trying my best here to improve my English. So please pardon me and I hope you get what I've written here.

Hambatan Dalam Kepemimpinan

Sering menyalahkan situasi
Seorang koruptor yang dihadapkan ke pengadilan mengatakan bahwa ia sebenarnya korban situasi. Sebenarnya ia bukan korban situasi, namun ia melarutkan diri dalam situasi dan menggunakan situasi sebagai alasan untuk berbuat jahat. Situasi melahirkan pemimpin yang cocok untuk zamannya. Sejarah telah membuktikan kebenarannya. Kebanyakan panglima perang menunjukkan wibawanya pada masa peperangan tetapi tidak cocok memimpin kelompoknya pada masa damai dan tenteram. Pemimpin yang dapat melihat situasi yang dihadapi dan cerdas menanggapinya, mampu memberikan perintah pada saat yang tepat dan mengambil inisiatif. Pemimpin seperti ini tidak perlu menjadi ahli di bidangnya tetapi memahami pengetahuan umum di bidang itu. Di samping itu anda tentu saja harus memiliki kemampuan teknis dan profesional agar anda berwibawa dalam mengatur roda kepemimpinan serta mengambil keputusan yang komunikatif dan meyakinkan.
Tidak berhasil memotivasi mereka
Kebolehan seorang pemimpin berg…

Bye-bye South Korea! #Day10

Hari ini officially hari terakhir di Korea Selatan, karena kita harus pulang ke Jakarta. Pagi itu agak hectic gitu, karena gw yang biasanya bangun paling pagi juga agak telat bangun. Langsung buru-buru mandi dan packing. Anita sama Nono juga kayanya cuma mandi bebek aja deh. Sambil nunggu mandi, kita juga sempetin sarapan ramyeon instan yang kita beli kemaren. Tapi gw sih kurang nafsu, jadi banyak sisanya.
Pas jam setengah 6an, si Justin dateng dia nanya kita udah siap atau belom dan mau ngajak bareng ke bandara. Tapi karena kita masih riweuh dan gak enak kalo minta dia nungguin, akhirnya kita minta dia berangkat duluan aja.
Pas udah jam 6an kurang, kita akhirnya rapih dan mulai jalan ke halte. Sebelumnya tuh kita dikasih bekel camilan gitu sama Kani, karena katanya kita gak sempet sarapan. Gak lupa sempetin foto bareng dulu sama Kani sebelum pamit pulang.
