I haven't updating my blog for quite sometimes.Like what Shu'bah,Pan and some other of my sahabat said and teasing me,I'm a "blogger tegar".~So,it's kind of wired if I didn't updating my blog in a week.
Insha Allah I want to share my humble opinion about what I'm thinking and planning right now.
People keep on asking me what I'm gonna do after I've finished my undergraduate studies and I keep on giving different answers.Perhaps they will think that I just have an "omong-omong kosong"..
It is you who determine your own future.
First of all I want to clarify,right now I'm talking about short term mission/aim.Not the ultimate mission which is I'm sure all of us already know-Mardhatillah,Paradise etc.
For those who ever participated in any program or management classes you should know the "back up plan".If let say your plan A couldn't be achieve due to some problems or there is a changes in the middle of the event,then you have to implement or go with Plan B which you were already planned before the program/event.The best thing is,you have more than A and B plan.Make few other plans.
Now,it same goes with our life.A wise person is he/she,who planned well his/her life span.It doesn't matter if you just have only plan A.Let say you wanted to be a doctor.Then you have to work out and choose the route of a doctor.After all,at the end of the day,you'll serve the people as a doctor.That's it.
As for me,I'm a bit abstract minded and like to think broad.I don't want to flow according to the streamline.According to my study flow,after I graduated I should be working with QS firm or pursue for Master.(actually once you do your master,you're more towards to be an academician.so,need to think it carefully.A private QS firm seldom take Master holder to work with them because they need to pay more for the salary.Thus,they preferred only diploma or Degree holder).If I'm working as a QS,then for how long shall I work?I'll work and get my salary and it will keep on repeating the same story.Until when?-retirement.(maybe)
Even in construction we need a proper plan.Which one shall be built/constructed first?The roof or the wall?
Why not we be a bit creative?I'm sure all of us have our own interest.For sure when you were in kindergarten and your teacher asked about your ambition you'll say A (for example).While in primary school you will think of to be B.And your ambition keeps on changing and I bet until now some of us still keep on looking of his own interest.
You have to be an engineer but deep inside your heart,you enjoy other things else,let say designing.Which one is better?You work partly because of "you have to" or you work because of "you love it"?Make your own decision.
What I'm trying to say here is,it is normal if you stumbled on a new interest in the middle of your life.If you think your interest will benefits you,and others,make a plan for it.It's not wrong to have many interest and plan.But make sure those interest benefits to ISLAM instead only for yourselves.And of course your plan need to be achievable.
I love to listen to Steve Jobs speech during the Commencement of student Graduation at the Stanford University.~ Do what your love.If you still can't find what you love,keep looking.DON'T SETTLE.
The MOST IMPORTANT is,we plan for our life in the hereafter.The real achievement is, when we'll be blessed by Allah and enter the Paradise.All of the things we planned for our short-term mission should have link to the hereafter.Otherwise,all we have done will never be accounted by Allah and we'll be regret soon.
~A wise and good Muslim is he,who plan his life to meet his Rabb~
Note 1:I'm not saying I'm good in planning.I'm still learning.
Note 2:Although my physical is small,don't under estimate my high ambitious and abstract minded.Hehehe (this is not a Riya' or 'Ujub statement)
Note 3:If you do not plan,you planned to fail.
