Four Person You Will Meet In Life

Welcome back, it’s been a while i am not start writing something to give you an insight. Recently i met some people and talk about life, what was the most important thing that make people feel a life. Mostly they answer is ‘Love’ . Classic answer, but before it turn to cliche, i want to share a good read, what you need to know about that cliche thing. I copy it from my friend note, but i don’t know who is the writer.Image

 

Life is the process of finding love; every person will need to find four people in their life.

First person is you,
Second person is the one you love most,
Third person is the one who love you most,
And the fourth is the one you spend the rest of your life with.

In life, firstly you will meet with the one you love most, and learn how love feels.
Because you know how love feels, so you can find the person who loves you most.
When you have experienced the feeling of loving others and being loved, you will then know what it is you need most.
Then you will find the person who is most suitable for you, to be able to spend the rest of your life with.

Sadly, in real life, these three people are usually not the same person. =(

The one you love most doesn’t love you. The one, who love you most, is never the one you love most.
And the one you spend your life with, is never theone you love most or the one who love you most.
He is just the person who happens to be at the right place at the right time.

Which person are you in other people’s life?

No person will purposely have a change of heart.
At the point in time when he loves you, he really loves you.
But when he doesn’t love you anymore, he really doesn’t love you anymore.
When he loves you, he can’t pretend that he doesn’t.
Same goes, when he loves you no more, there’s no way he can pretend he loves you.

When a person doesn’t love you and wants to leave you.
You must ask yourself if you still love him, if you also don’t love him anymore, do not keep him just to save your pride.
If you still love him, you should wish him happiness,
and hope that he will be with the one he loves most, not stop him from it.
If you stop him from finding true happiness with the one he loves, it shows you already don’t love him.
And if you don’t love him, what rights do you have to blame him for a change of heart?
Love is not possessive, Love is like the moon.
You can’t just take it down and put it in your basin.
But the moonlight still shines upon you.
In other words, when you love a person, you can use another method of possessing the person.
Let him become a permanent memory in you life. If you really love a person, you must love him for what he is.
Love him for his good points, and the bad.
You can’t wish for him to become like what you like him to be just because you love him.
If he can’t change to become what you like him to be, you don’t love him anymore.

When you really love a person, you cannot find a reason why you love him.
You only know that no matter when and where, good mood or bad mood, you will wish to have this person be with you.
Real love is when two people can go through the toughest problems without asking for promises or listing criterias.
In a relationship, you have to put in effort and give in at times, not always be on the receiving end.
Being away from each other is a type of test.
If the relationship isn’t strong, then you can only admit defeat. Real love will never become hate.

When two people are in love, they love to ask each other to swear, to make promises.
Why do they ask each other to swear and promise?
Because they don’t trust each other, they don’t trust their lover.
These swear and promises are useless; Till the sky falls, till the ocean dry, my love for you will never change! -.-“
We all know that the sky will never fall; the ocean will never dry.
Even if it does happen, are we still alive by then?
Be careful when making promises; don’t make promises that you cannot keep.
Swear by things that can never happen, because it can never happen, so no harm just saying it casually…..

Remember, swearing by things that can never happen are the most touching.
In a relationship, what you say is one thing, but what you do is another;
The one saying, doesn’t believe; the one listening, also doesn’t believe.

 

After all, what we need is to stop looking outward instead start looking inward. Realizing that love is something given not taken.

 

Stay strong muggles! 😉

The power of 1%

Video

There is something that we all have to remember when it comes to having ideas. This is a cruel world where your society does not like your ideas. Every single society in your life starting from family and friends to your group projects and sport teammates have had their say in disliking your ideas.

But something else we have to remember is, your idea is what will give birth to a movement. All you have to do is believe in yourself. You will need guts to do this because at first you will stand out and most likely be laughed at and mocked. You will have to endure and stand alone. For a short period of time or even for a long run you will have to stand strong and believe that the time will come.

The time when you get your first follower.

People may hate every word that comes out of your mouth, well at least until something you say or do connects with them, they will follow.

Here is a video of Derek Sivers, one of TED Speakers, on how to make a movement under 3 minutes.

Usually people who finally have followers and realize that the movement they have now was created from their awesome idea tend to focus only on themselves. They are greedy for acknowledgement.

That’s wrong. You are nothing without your followers. The first follower has a crucial role. The first follower is the one who will show others how to follow and realise that it’s not about the leader, but it’s about them and their new movement.

Derek Sivers said in the video that the first follower is the one that transforms a lone nut into a leader. Without followers your ideas are merely dreams and thoughts, but with followers they will become a movement.

If you are the one that has a brilliant idea and wish to start a movement you need to focus on your first few followers. They will be the ones that will help you as leaders get the momentum to reach the tipping point of your movement. All you need is to meet the right person in your life, the right person who will follow and make others follow.

What if you are the ones that meet someone with an awesome idea? You’ve met someone with a mind blowing ideology and you love it!

Have the guts to stand up and join in, be the first follower!

Be the one that has made this lone idea a movement that will have the power to change and influence the world.

The living proof of this ideology is Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga known as one of the most influential artists. She spends much of her effort on just one percent of her audience. The highly engaged superfans who drive word of mouth. The power of her loyal followers who truly evangelize her will bring new fans into the fold.

So who are your one percent-ers? The ones that will go the extra mile to sing their praises of you to their friends and family.

And if you are the first follower, you may not be the leader with the idea, but you are the one who believed in the idea and the one who will lead other followers to make the idea a movement.

Do you dare to dream?

Well noted, this is a perfect video to tell you guys, why i want you to learn much much more of life’s finer things. Moving out from your comfort zone. Remember the famous quote, “There is no growth in Comfort Zone , yet, there is no Comfort in Learning Zone.” I want to thanks deeply to inknowation team who made this video.

And my dream, everyone of you got the ‘click’ sensation and be a different person. Believe me, no matter what books you had read, youtube video, TED live event you attended, Steve Jobs slide you followed, or even the Steve Jobs self teach you and mentored you. People doesn’t believe to follow the ‘passion’ but do other things instead. They running in circle (The Rat Race) *that’s why i doesn’t like settler* in their comfort zone.

The only question is, WHAT IF..

Yes, What If…

stand tall Muggles 😉

Viral World

Video

Hi folks, back again. Today i watch a cool stuff. A video about how viral our world is. My friend Wilson Layman (@pukrupuk) once told me to stepping a ‘business world’. He said that, people tend to find an excuse to starting or follows their passion. They said i am not creative, i don’t where to start, etc. All of the answer you can find it on the internet.

We are living in digital era folks, your ideas can spread so fast beyond you can imagine. Like what will happen with this kid in the video. This video is a story of 9 year old Caine, who spent his summer building an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto part store, and a community that came together to make his day. Caine’s Arcade has inspired millions, and launched a movement to foster creativity and entrepreneurship in kids, via the Imagination Foundation: imagination.is

Embrace yourself, and learn something new. But don’t put your both leg when you stepped out into the river. 😉

How to type français accent

Bonjour mon ammis! 🙂

In my previous post, we already know a bit of français. And i just want to give you some awesome tips about the accent. If we want to make français as one of our “life’s finer things” we need to know much more about their country their culture and else. But, today we don’t learn about that, only the accent.

So what is the accent?

Since, picture is known as story telling tool, i will use a picture to describe what is accent *caution! muggles will never understand this explanation*

Got it? So yea back to Français. What differ Français with English is, they have an accent in several letter.

Before we start, let you guys try , how to type français without using Ctrl+C + Ctrl+V .

Nah, you can’t find it in symbol too.

That special accent need a special technique too and if you know much more than others, you will be special 😉

So here we go. There are 5 accent in Français that used oftentimes. l’accent aigu, l’accent grave, l’accent circonflexe, le tréma, and la cédille. When we type “Français” we use the famous la cédille accent.

  • l’accent aigu : é (the accent is like ace ventura hair)
  • l’accent grave  : è, à, ù (the accent is like samurai hair)
  • l’accent circonflexe  : â, ê, î, ô, û (looks like, japanese peasant)
  • le tréma  : ë, ï (weirdo using “:”)
  • la cédille : ç (Read as “se” not “si (c)”)

And here the secret, if you are using Ms.Office that will be great *because i only know in this processor* The made a shortcut to type, the only thing is to know how. You need to use 2 buttons, the first button is Ctrl (below the shift button) and “the accent” button. For example la cédille to type ç . You need to hold Ctrl and (,) / comma *because ç is consist of c+,*

and guess the other, le tréma combine Ctrl + : and now you can mastered how to type Français accent 😉

  • é        Ctrl- then e
  • è        Ctrl-` then e
  • ù        Ctrl-` then u
  • â        Ctrl-^ then a
  • ô        Ctrl-^ then o
  • û        Ctrl-^ then u
  • ë        Ctrl-: then e
  • ç        Ctrl-, then c

Well done monsieur et mademoiselle , au revoir!

How to turn elementary knowledge into ten million bucks

Image

The human brain can be awe inspiring. Human brain are the source of everything you see and touch in this world. The only gift from God *because when you are born, you didn’t bring anything* .But what we face today, many people are to lazy to used their brain. Most people lose their enthusiasm to learn more or use their own heritage to make something useful. The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you. One day i open my twitter and read my timeline and my eyes drop on an interesting quote. My friend Wilson Layman (@pukrupuk), said that, you can find anything in the internet, even the wildest idea *like guide how to survive from zombie apocalypse* , the thing that you must do is find that idea and DO.

Still today, i will give you a guide to be a connaisseur & bon vivant . How to use a simple model *elementary level* to produce a million bucks. I learn this from Professor Scott E Page about two simple geometric models. Most of us already learn about simple geometry. We learn about Area (length x width) and Volume (Length x Width x Depth). Then how to produce a million bucks? Yes, this simple model (geometry model) can make you ten million bucks, you just have to know when and how to apply it.

 Image

Stavros Niarchos, the Greek Shipping Magnate, the first supertanker builder. He did just that with the simple model. Niarchos knew gemotery, he knew that the surface area of a ship is different than it’s volume. The bigger the ship, the greater his return on his investment. So let’s work on this model. First, let simplify the supertanker to be a rectangular box. Height S, width S and length 8S. Assume this as approximate ratio of most ships. The amount of steel used to make bigger ship is depends on the surface area. Surface area seems a reasonable proxy for cost.

To compute how much steel would be required to make a ship, we need to calculate the surface of the top and bottom, sides, and front and back. The front and back surface area equal to S2 , while the other surface have surface areas equal to 8S2 . Therefore, the total surface area is equals to 34S2 (2 x S2 + 4 x 8 S2). For the volume, it’s equal to S times S times 8S or 8S3. The surface of area goes up with the square of S, but the volume increases with its cube. This is what Niarchos remembered from geometry, like us.

Next, let’s compare the surface area and volume for a ship thirty feet wide and two hundred forty feet long to a supertanker five times as large: that’s equal one hundred and fifty feet wide and twelve hundred feet long. Let’s simplify, for the ship S=30 and for the supertanker S=150. Using the simple geometry model we know that the ship has a total surface area of 30.600 square feet and volume of 216.000 cubic feet. The supertanker has a surface area 765.000 square feet (25 times from the ship) and volume of 27 million cubic feet (125 times the volume of the ship). In other words, the supertanker carries 125 times oil, but only requires 25 times steel.

Magic? not yet..

So why we don’t make all of ship enormous? Logically conclude that’s ship with bigger size is more efficient. That’s not true. The longest supertankers stretch only a little more than a quarter mile and are just sixty meters wide. The reason is, limitations of Suez Canal. It’s only sixty meters wide at it’s narrowest point. Any ship wider than that could not take the short cut into Mediterranean. The model is only guides to thinking, we have to maintain contact with reality.

What we learn? Simple knowledge, if we know when and how to apply it will be so powerful. But don’t be arrogant, you need to think about it more clearly, you don’t know all the world. What if, you already built a gigantic ship and you could not take the short cut on Suez Canal? .. Poof!

Bye muggles! 🙂

 

Weakness is your hidden strengths

Image

Have you ever run into an interview and the interviewer asked you *with angelic face* what is your biggest mistake? Perhaps, you will tell your weakness honestly and end-up with disappointment because the interviewer didn’t want to hire you. Why? That’s because you tell all your weakness *your bad habit or else* You let yourself too open , no guard, and that’s make them easily judge you. So as a connaisseur & bon vivant , successful-man. You need to know how to handle this kind of tricky question.

The objective of this question is to know, your true character , don’t be tricked with warmth and interviewer’s sociability. So, for the first step you need to embraced your weakness instead of eliminated it. Asked your best friend or family what is your weakness and accepted it. After you done with it, make a list of it. Perhaps, your weak-list are same as this 16 typical weaknesses. Choose one or two from this list.

  1. Disorganized
  2. Inflexible
  3. Stubborn
  4. Inconsistent
  5. Obnoxious
  6. Emotionless
  7. Shy
  8. Irresponsible
  9. Boring
  10. Unrealistic
  11. Negative
  12. Intimidating
  13. Weak
  14. Arrogant
  15. Indecisive
  16. Impatient

Dave Kerpen, the NY Times – Best Selling Author can magically turn that 16 typical weaknesses became a strengths. So after you got you 1 or 2 biggest weaknesses, let see what can Dave Kerpen help you.

  1. Disorganized –> Creative
  2. Inflexible –> Organized
  3. Stubborn –> Dedicated
  4. Inconsistent –> Flexible
  5. Obnoxious –> Enthusiastic
  6. Emotionless –> Calm
  7. Shy –> Reflective
  8. Irresponsible –> Adventurous
  9. Boring –> Responsible
  10. Unrealistic –> Positive
  11. Negative –> Realistic
  12. Intimidating –> Assertive
  13. Weak –> Humble
  14. Arrogant –> Self-Confident
  15. Indecisive –> Patient
  16. Impatient –> Passionate

Then, what should i do with this weak-strength-converted-list ? You can use it, when you face the interviewer’s question about your weakness. Just tell them your weakness but don’t forget to give the  argument *your self defence*

Good luck muggles 🙂

The day that Einstein feared has arrived

Image

Welcome to the new hi-technology era. You could see this phenomena in many aspect of human life, or maybe you are the one who do this recently. People do that when they gather with friends in coffee shop, when they have a vacation in the beach, when they are out on intimate date, having dinner, and many more. There is no more warm interaction or communication between human. They all are to addict with gadgets. As i posted before, to boost our confidence we need to do many public speaking. This is one of big constraint.

“I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots”. Albert Einstein

Someone said to me, the new generation was made to beat the previous generation. But, can you imagine our new generation who already addicted with technology even started since they are a kids. We are better than our previous generation but we need to save the next generation *if we can*

So what are we?

We are generation Y *who are born between 1980-2000* mostly our parents are Baby Boomer generation. Every generation have a unique character and i believe we are on the top now.

 Image

Fellas, even we are on the top now, many of us are gadget addicts. So, just keep your phone away from you. When you are hang out with your friend or dinner with family. I bet you hate if Einstein called you an idiot, don’t you?
