Famous school/college dropouts

Although I Haven’t good academic  degree record, I’m fully thanks to whom who always support me to attend and finished college degree. I’m very weak in math, algorithm & statistic, while in Computer Science Degree dominated and ralated with mathematics which I’m very weak on it… 😦

But, it doesn’t matter for me… I just do and focus with what I’m love to do… everyday, everynight I just learn what I Love to learn, while all students just learn the learning path what the college provide that I’m less interest on it… there for I learn another knowledge but I’m focus on it, and this way who bring me to my career right now.

To finish college degree is important, but you should know what will you be in the future? If you know what will you be in future, get the right way to get it and don’t forget to focus on it.

Many people who drop outs from school/college they just do what they love to do and focus on it, I found interesting photos on yahoo singapore news, listed the Famous school/college dropouts :

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish Meaning

After watching Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address, he said in last of his speech “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish” what is the meaning of this speech? I’m googling about it, and I found resolution about this doubt. I’m putting it, into my blog.. just for my reference and to remember it… this post is originally published on one of linked forum.

Hi all buddies,
what’s your opinion about Steve Jobs speech to Stanford graduate students (14th June 2005) a.k.a. “stay hungry, stay foolish” speech?

Have you ever seen it?

Hey Franc,
Great Question to ask, Its just like “Do you believe in yourself?”
Because whats “Jobs” is pointing at is the same, believe in our intuition, instincts, inner self, to do what we love to do.. to stop waisting time for something that’s certainly not what you believe in.

Henry Ford once said: “Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right. ”

This is what it exactly is, Jobs is just insisting all of us to do what we love… what we all are crazy about.. “Just go for it!” Kind of thing…

None of us knows that how long we are going to live, can’t live for century, even average life rate is now half a century. In this case how can we say that we waste our damn precious time in something that we don’t really believe in.

Only way we can do the best work in any field is if we are really in love in what we are doing, we love to do, we love to improve, we love to create, flourish, and extend to the no limits.

Stay Hungry and Stay Foolish…. is a mean to say, you should not worry about anything world is following.. you should try to keep yourself from herd mentality and give your self enough space and respect so that creativity in your can blossom. My one friend puts this in a way: “Starving for Challenges” in return of which I said: “Yes and Practice your dreams bit by bit”, in your life..

When we do what we are interested in, we find ourself hungry to do it more, with more perfection, with more passion and creativity, and thats what makes our work stand out of crowd. And just here being Foolish is too be enough wise to not hear or get influenced by other people’s being admired of your work and start doing something more better and different by again looking in yourself and believing in your instincts.

At last I would just love to say, I Believe! I do Believe!
Stay Hungry! Stay Foolish! 🙂
Hope it helps Franc. Please let me know if I can be helpful.

Dream comes true

Bagi saya mimpi adalah hal yang penting yang harus dimiliki oleh orang yang ingin maju dalam hidupnya, dengan mempunyai mimpi kita akan tergerak untuk berusaha menggapainya… mungkin dengan mengklasifikasikan mimpi dalam waktu pencapaiannya anda akan lebih fokus untuk meraihnya, misal mimpi satu tahun kedepan.. mimpi lima tahun kedepan.. mimpi sepuluh tahun kedepan anda mau jadi apa dan apa yang akan anda lakukan atau miliki.

Semasa kuliah, saya ingin sekali mempunyai MacBook Pro… waktu itu karena saya masih kuliah dan belum mempunyai penghasilan yang bisa untuk membeli Laptop impian itu maka saya tulis saja mimpi tersebut kedalam list mimpi saya untuk dapat saya raih ketika saya sudah lulus kemudian bekerja dan mempunyai penghasilan… bagi sebagian orang mungkin mimpi ini adalah mimpi sepele, namun bagi saya ini adalah suatu yang dapat memberikan semangat untuk selalu terus berusaha dan berkarya… dan genap saya bekerja 5 bulan saya mampu meraih mimpi tersebut… ya welcome to my life “My MacBook Pro Thunderbolt”.


Mimpi yang sangat penting bagi saya adalah dapat membahagiakan keluarga, berbagi kebahagian dengan sesama dan menjadi manusia yang bermanfaat. (amin)

Mimpi berada di Golden Gate

Seseorang pasti mempunyai mimpi, dan berharap mimpi itu menjadi kenyataan. Adakalanya orang selalu menganggap remeh mimpi – mimpi saya, namun saya yakin mimpi tersebut akan menjadi kenyataan, sebagian dari orang bilang : “jangan bermimpi tingi – tinggi nanti kalo jatuh sakit loh?”, saya tak peduli apa kata orang karena saya yakin dengan bermimpi menambah keyakinan saya untuk meraihnya, lagian berimpi itu tidak bayar kok dan tak ada yang melarang.

Saya ingin sekali ke Golden Gate, Golden Gate merupakan sebuah bukaan dari Samudra Pasifik ke Teluk San Francisco. Dia menghubungkan kota San Francisco, California di Semenanjung San Francisco dan Kabupaten Marin, California. Panjang jembatan keseluruhan 2.727 m, jarak antara menara adalah 1.280 m, dan ketinggiannya adalah 230 m di atas permukaan air.
