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.

Antara mimpi dan pengorbanan

Setelah saya mendengarkan business coaching dari Anne Ahira dengan judul : “persiapan terbang tinggi”, dari sana saya tahu faktor orang gagal adalah karena dia tidak tahu hubungan antara mimpi dan pengorbanan.

Tahukan anda bagaimana persiapan angkatan udara indonesia saat ingin terbang tinggi? mereka mempersiapkan segalanya dengan matang, contoh yang lain : bagaimana persiapan anda ketika anda ingin mencapai puncak himalaya? pasti persiapan anda akan banyak, bukan hanya fisik saja tapi kebutuhan anda juga pasti anda akan persiapkan dengan matang. 

Dari sini saya bisa membuat kesimpulan bahwa : “Semakin besar tujuan yg ditempuh maka akan semakin besar pula pengorbanan yg harus dikorbankan, bertindaklah dan selesaikan masalah yg akan dihadapi.”

Saat anda gagal, yakinkan pada diri anda bahwa keberhasilan itu semakin dekat dengan anda dan itulah merupakan sebuah pengorbanan yang akan mengantarkan anda kepada sebuah keberhasilan. Tidak ada kesuksesan yang instan, semua butuh pengorbanan : waktu, materi, fisik, dll.

“Katakan selalu dalam hati… : Saya tidak tahu kapan saya sukses. Tapi saya tahu persis bahwa saya BISA Sukses, dan akan SEMAKIN SUKSES!!” ^_^ ~Ahira
