Introvert

Seminggu yang lalu saat saya mengikuti kontes speech, saya berbincang dengan kolega senior saya. Kita berbicara banyak hal tentang teknik speech, leadership, pekerjaan, dan banyak hal lainnya. Kemudian kami berbincang tentang toastmasters dan impactnya terhadap kehidupan kami. Di satu titik saya bercerita kepadanya bahwa saya seorang introvert yang pemalu dan tidak bisa berbicara di depan…

100% of you

Have we been grateful enough?

“Aku ingin begini, aku ingin begitu”- Nobita Seringkali di akhir tahun kita (termasuk saya sendiri) membuat resolusi untuk kita jadikan target di tahun depan.

Lucid Dream

Kuterbangun di sebuah kamar tamu yang sepertinya di lantai bawah. Segala pernak pernik menghiasi dinding dan lemari di ujung bidang ruang. Kubangkit dari California size bed itu dan mencoba menelaah tata letak rumah itu. Di luar kamar, beberapa foto tertata rapi baik di bidang vertikal dan meja ornamen. Satu wajah yang kukenal muncul di beberapa…

Perih

Sulit rasanya meletakkan fokus, hati, dan pikiran pada satu entitas. Beberapa kejadian pernah membuat hati tidak percaya dan tertutup. Suatu hari langit menemukan rembesan pantulan cahaya matahari melewati celah pekatnya atmosfir. Datang tiba-tiba memberikan nuansa tenang dan menyejukkan. Sang langit mulai terbiasa dengan rasa hangat yang tiba. Dengan segala kompleksitas dan perfeksionis deretan awan dan…

Expectation

What is expectation? I excerpt some online articles and I found it interesting that some similar words have different deep meaning. Hope or expectation? Want or wish? *** You might use like this: For something difficult to attain you might wish (a wish can sometimes have a magical element to it.) For something you feel…

Evaluation Session

I took a break from speech project today. It was mainly because I intend to calm myself. I’ve tried hard to maintain and control my speech pace, but it didn’t work. I need to compact my speech content so that I need to rely more on improvisation rather than the rich content. (Because we only…

Trust

I have terrible trust issues. Disappointment to many people I put trust into grows as time flows. My tendency to keep everything to myself get back to me. My friend once said that our college taught us a little to be an M. I just laughed at this statement at that time saying that was…

Evaluation Project : Conversing with ease

It was my honor to do my first evaluation speech project for Mr Anggoro. He is my admiration in public speaking in our club. So I did it with my utmost effort and concentration for him. For me it was my first evaluation speech since I joined toastmaster last year. While it was his first…

Level 1A : Ice Breaker (Revision)

So I decide to revise my speech for level 1A. Because the point of ice breaker in real life is to make yourself relax and people get to know about you. So I want to make the speech as my rehearsal of my CC’s Ice Breaker. Duration : 4-6 minutes ** There is an interesting…

Pathways Level 1A : The Commuter

So I’ve finished my CC curriculum, and I need to pace up right away into the new curriculum, The Pathways. This is the prepared speech for Level 1.a ***** The Commuter ( 4-6 minutes ) (Doing some pantomime of entering the train with much difficulty) I am a commuter man. We are called Roker or…

Pathways

So, I’ve finished my CC Toastmasters’ curriculum, then I moved to the new curriculum. A lil bit a waste, because I’ve invested a year in CC. But no worries, My CC still intact. We fear what we don’t understand. Not many members in our club reached or even finished the Pathways. Even our senior would…

10th : Step Up Your Game

(Picture of anak SD, SMP, SMA) Do you remember what you learnt at elementary school? They taught you about many subjects. Maths, arts, physical trainings, and so on. I believe what government intend is to broad our knowledge. Because as a child and a teenager mostly do not know what they want yet. (College student)…

10th CC Project

I am good at starting something, but really suck at ending it. This is the last part of Competence Communication Curriculum I need to pass. So rather than mop about it (because the last, 9th project was a year ago!), let’s think what can I do to start about it : INSPIRE YOUR AUDIENCE EXECUTIVE…

10th

It’s only the 10th but the temptation to stop running is much stronger. Coach do a rotational squad. Buy a competitive players to keep stay on fire. We need to keep searching woods to let the fire up. Motivation is something that we need to seek and use to achieve our goals. 1/3 Ramadhan. Let’s…

Khatm

Khatm Alqur’an means a recitation of Alquran from the beginning until the end. Despite of all that many verses, it’s actually doable and many people achieve that. Since the last time I’ve done that (I forgot either when I was on high school or the 2nd year on college), I’ve failed numerous times to achieve…

Hijra

So motivation can appear in any forms. Would it be temporary or would I make it consistently and istiqoma? Let’s don’t think about it and just do it. Happy upgrading yourself lads. This is the month when you get many chances to hijra’. Bismillah.

Waiting

Life is so much uncertain. That’s what called either qada or qadr, right? (I forget which one lol). It’s been a long time that I have to wait with so much uncertainty in the edge of pond of goldfish. Waiting for certain person to come (or not) accompany the cold breeze evening wind. Worry and…

Spark

That spark that I’ve lost since last year. I’ve got it back. They say your prayers is not accomplished so that you will be given the best for you. I may be not the expert of anything. Jack of all trades. But I can offer you hard work if being stimulated by the right motivation….
