Tidur, tidur lah

Tidur, tidur lah.. Lupakan hiruk pikuk hari ini.
Tidur, tidur lah.. Lupakan permasalah yang mendera.
Tidur, tidur lah.. Ucapkan syukur atas nikmat yang ada.
Tidur, tidur lah.. Mohon ampun pada Sang Penguasa.
Tidur, tidur lah..

Mungkin beban hidup terasa berat, tapi insyaAllaah esok hari masih ada. Jika tak ada, maka semoga bertemu di surgaNya. Bukankah itu lebih nikmat?

Waktu memang berharga, sesuatu yang mahal tanpa tandingannya. Jika semua yang ada di dunia dikumpulkan jadi satu, ingin ditukar dengan waktu yang telah berlalu, nilainya tidak akan bisa mengembalikan waktu tersebut. Maka lupakan lah masalah yang ada. Jangan sia-siakan waktu terbuang sia-sia. Tidak perlu disesali. Pikirkan hari esok yang lebih berharga.

Maka tidur, tidur lah..

Why Writing Is The Best Way To Increase Your Mental Strength

Original post here.

This past year, I’ve read some phenomenal articles on mental strength. And after reading Jeff Haden’s tips for becoming mentally tougher, I began thinking through more ways to hone this vital leadership skill.

To me, mental strength means persevering through challenging situations while keeping your confidence in tact.

Although you might feel like writing makes you vulnerable to judgment, regularly exposing yourself to the harsh critics who’ll challenge you is the best way to build an unshakeable foundation of mental strength and become a more influential business leader in the process.

Writing exercises your brain.

Staying physically tough requires preparation, discipline, and consistency. I remember training for sports when I was younger. The only way I could improve was by working out and training a few times a week. If I got lazy, it showed on the field.

Your brain is a muscle. Becoming mentally tougher works just like gaining physical strength; you have to exercise it to get stronger. But that doesn’t mean clocking in an annual visit to the gym or doing a Sudoku puzzle every once in a while.

You have to consistently work out your brain to strengthen it. For me, writing out my ideas helps me retain information better, and it’s one of the best mental workouts you can do to stimulate your mind.

Many successful business leaders are also devoted writers.

Fortunately, I’m always surrounded by highly intelligent people. One key characteristic they all seem to share is that they write out their thoughts on a regular basis. For example, our initial investor, Brent Beshore, always wrote notes before and during our meetings, and he continues to write every chance he gets.

Other impressive industry leaders such as Shane Snow or Dharmesh Shah are also avid writers. You’ve also probably read articles from Brad Feld, Peter Thiel, Tony Hsieh, and more — the list of thought leaders goes on and on. It makes sense that intelligent people have insights to share, but putting them on paper is the best outlet for organizing, understanding, and articulating them effectively. Making a commitment to provide value to readers also challenges these thought leaders to stay sharp, question the status quo, and become all-around smarter leaders.

Spelling out your ideas paints a more complete picture.

If you keep your ideas to yourself, you have no one to point out the flaws or holes in your logic. And that can lead to an ugly cycle of ignorance and inflated confidence. When you’re writing, you can dispel your ideas and take a more critical eye to them. And if they’re published, readers can also offer feedback.

Take a look at my LinkedIn article, for example. You’ll see that many of the commenters question my title choice and impose strong opinions on my decision to single out leaders. People will always challenge certain stances I take, and it’s one of the best ways to stay sharp. You learn how to approach your ideas from new perspectives, defend your thoughts, and fuel educational conversations. It’s not a battle of who can yell the loudest; it’s a way to gather diverse opinions and sift out the jewels. After a few beat-ins, you learn to take the punches and can recover to be mentally stronger than before.

I’m no psychologist, but I do interact with more experts than anyone I know. And the common denominator among these intellectually curious people is their mental toughness and commitment to writing. Investing time in your mental acuity and strength through writing shouldn’t be buried deep in your wish list; it should be a daily priority. And who knows — you might even earn the reputation as a trusted thought leader and reap the benefits that extend beyond your professional development.

What’s up me!

Even though writing in a blog is supposed to be meaningful, I thought at least posting an update of my life is not ugly. Yeah. I have been quite busy these days doing these and those. I don’t have to think or write anything related to blog. :p As usual, my routine is working (and eating, sleeping, and I don’t know) but I feel tired. Literally tired. I didn’t get enough sleep, perhaps. One of exact reasons is because the the weather is getting colder. If you know what I meant, cold makes you lazy. Haha.

Well, to make it more alive, I am still pursuing my dreams in several aspects. So, I am waiting for some good results in these coming months. At least I am trying to make a better life this year. Oh no! I just have 2.5 months left before the end of the year. It makes me crazy to think how many targets that I achieved already. Haha. Ok then. Bye. See you with more important posting in this blog! 😀

10 Small Things You Can Do Every Day to Get Smarter

Original post from TIME.
This post is in partnership with Inc., which offers useful advice, resources and insights to entrepreneurs and business owners. The article below was originally published at Inc.com.

You might be under the impression that intelligence is a fixed quantity set when you are young and unchanging thereafter. But research shows that you’re wrong. How we approach situations and the things we do to feed our brains can significantly improve our mental horsepower.

That could mean going back to school or fillingng your bookshelves (or e-reader) with thick tomes on deep subjects, but getting smarter doesn’t necessarily mean a huge commitment of time and energy, according to a recent thread on question-and-answer site Quora.

When a questioner keen on self-improvement asked the community, “What would you do to be a little smarter every single day?” lots of readers–including dedicated meditators, techies, and entrepreneurs–weighed in with useful suggestions. Which of these 10 ideas can you fit into your daily routine?

1. Be smarter about your online time.

Every online break doesn’t have to be about checking social networks and fulfilling your daily ration of cute animal pics. The Web is also full of great learning resources, such as online courses, intriguing TED talks, and vocabulary-building tools. Replace a few minutes of skateboarding dogs with something more mentally nourishing, suggest several responders.

2. Write down what you learn.

It doesn’t have to be pretty or long, but taking a few minutes each day to reflect in writingabout what you learned is sure to boost your brainpower. “Write 400 words a day on things that you learned,” suggests yoga teacher Claudia Azula Altucher. Mike Xie, a research associate at Bayside Biosciences, agrees: “Write about what you’ve learned.”

3. Make a ‘did’ list.

A big part of intelligence is confidence and happiness, so boost both by pausing to list not the things you have yet to do, but rather all the things you’ve already accomplished. The idea of a “done list” is recommended by famed VC Marc Andreessen as well as Azula Altucher. “Make an I DID list to show all the things you, in fact, accomplished,” she suggests.

4. Get out the Scrabble board.

Board games and puzzles aren’t just fun but also a great way to work out your brain. “Play games (Scrabble, bridge, chess, Go, Battleship, Connect 4, doesn’t matter),” suggests Xie (for a ninja-level brain boost, exercise your working memory by trying to play without looking at the board). “Play Scrabble with no help from hints or books,” concurs Azula Altucher.

5. Have smart friends.

It can be rough on your self-esteem, but hanging out with folks who are more clever than you is one of the fastest ways to learn. “Keep a smart company. Remember your IQ is the average of five closest people you hang out with,” Saurabh Shah, an account manager at Symphony Teleca, writes.

“Surround yourself with smarter people,” agrees developer Manas J. Saloi. “I try to spend as much time as I can with my tech leads. I have never had a problem accepting that I am an average coder at best and there are many things I am yet to learn…Always be humble and be willing to learn.”

6. Read a lot.

OK, this is not a shocker, but it was the most common response: Reading definitely seems essential. Opinions vary on what’s the best brain-boosting reading material, with suggestions ranging from developing a daily newspaper habit to picking up a variety offiction and nonfiction, but everyone seems to agree that quantity is important. Read a lot.

7. Explain it to others.

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough,” Albert Einstein said. The Quora posters agree. Make sure you’ve really learned what you think you have learned and that the information is truly stuck in your memory by trying to teach it to others. “Make sure you can explain it to someone else,” Xie says simply.

Student Jon Packles elaborates on this idea: “For everything you learn–big or small–stick with it for at least as long as it takes you to be able to explain it to a friend. It’s fairly easy to learn new information. Being able to retain that information and teach others is far more valuable.”

8. Do random new things.

Shane Parrish, keeper of the consistently fascinating Farnam Street blog, tells the story of Steve Jobs’ youthful calligraphy class in his response on Quora. After dropping out of school, the future Apple founder had a lot of time on his hands and wandered into a calligraphy course. It seemed irrelevant at the time, but the design skills he learned were later baked into the first Macs. The takeaway: You never know what will be useful ahead of time. You just need to try new things and wait to see how they connect with the rest of your experiences later on.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future,” Parrish quotes Jobs as saying. In order to have dots to connect, you need to be willing to try new things–even if they don’t seem immediately useful or productive.

9. Learn a new language.

No, you don’t need to become quickly fluent or trot off to a foreign country to master the language of your choosing. You can work away steadily from the comfort of your desk and still reap the mental rewards. “Learn a new language. There are a lot of free sites for that. UseLivemocha or Busuu,” says Saloi (personally, I’m a big fan of Memrise once you have the basic mechanics of a new language down).

10. Take some downtime.

It’s no surprise that dedicated meditator Azula Altucher recommends giving yourself space for your brain to process what it’s learned–“sit in silence daily,” she writes–but she’s not the only responder who stresses the need to take some downtime from mental stimulation. Spend some time just thinking, suggests retired cop Rick Bruno. He pauses the interior chatter while exercising. “I think about things while I run (almost every day),” he reports.

Do you have any suggestions to add to the list?
