In the middle of chaos-era-everyday, i think i need to remind my story.
Last week, I attended studium generale (maybe this is the first and the last attendance). The first reason why i decided to attend is because the speaker, Pak Arcandra Tahar, the famous person in Indonesia today! He is very wise and calm person!
The most precious thing that I got is “the chance to hear a inspirational life story from people who have done incredible things” and ITB give many chances
“What things that undergraduate student (maha-siswa) can do to contribute in developing our beloved country?” – the most regularly question that always raise the head when doktrinisasi-time.
And you know the answer from Pak Candra? Very simple but striking. I said it realistic.
Before you thing to give ‘something’, look yourself. What do you have?
There are 3 steps you must have:
1. Competence, you will get from school, campus, training, etc.
2. Skill, you will get when you have implemented your competence, when you have did trial and error, win or loss, etc.
3. Experience, only time can answer it. Not only 1 or 2 years but you should through 10 or 20 years to become expert person.
And Pak Candra has proved it.
Now, I am still on the first step. It is so far to the 3 step and I am so far away to the time to answer ‘what contribution i can do?’.
Don’t ask many question to people. Ask yourself first. It’s will be a lie if you say something that is not your business and you assume yourself right.
In the junction of life,
When she in the bottom,
She still proud and love herself,
‘Yes, you did a good things’,’Yes i proud to be a student in a same almamater with inspirational people’
