Work Obsession, Good or Bad.


Last day of July! Since I'll be busy for the whole August, might as well I spend a short while writing something. Heh. 

Being obsessed with work. Good or bad? I say, it all depends on how you look at it. 

It's good, when you know where you're going to with your work and you are working towards the result(s) your expecting when you first started. Because at the end of the day, you'll be the one to feel good about it. All the hard work you've poured in, will eventually paid off.

It's bad, when you're working in a demotivating environment. Probably places that you don't like that much, or with people/colleague you can't even have a simple conversation with. So, when you're obsessed with work at these kinda environment, you're literally forced to be obsessed with the workloads.

It's good, when you really really love what your doing, and at the same time you knew you're good at what you're doing. The latter reason would be a great bonus. A lot of people that I know doesn't realise what they really want to do with their lives. Hence I admire those who tells me they love their job and the effect they can emit with their work.

It's bad, when I see people are obsessed with their work just for the sack of a living. They just go with the flow, like ants. And they can get really absorbed in their work. These people will just get stuck in a spot forever.

I hope those who reads this will have a thought of it too. I know, you might be saying it's easy for me to say when I have thousands of mouths to feed at home. But...... think again. As late Steve Job once said

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it."

At the meantime, stay crazy!

My life, your life
Don't cross them lines
What you like, what I like
Why can't we both be right?
Attacking, defending
Until there's nothing left worth winning
Your pride and my pride
Don't waste my time

Saying "Hi" to you guys!

I've been having quite a lot of cakes lately. Been slacking. Been thinking. Been doing a lot of unproductive things. Been giving in to irresistible distractions. 

Looking for a solution and I hope I will solve this distraction as soon as I can.

No-Plan Plan


Last weekend was great! Can't say perfect, but it was good enough for a short getaway. I haven't been travelling out this year. Going back to home town doesn't count of course. So, my friends and I booked our ticket to Langkawi awhile ago. I've never been to any beach trips in West Malaysia hence I think it's a good time to explore Langkawi.

Overall, it was an enjoyable one. It wasn't sunny throughout our stay (such a turn off) otherwise, everything was great. Langkawi isn't a huge place to explore. Would fit those who wants a no-plan kinda plan. 

Random walks, random restaurants to dine in, random conversations, basically everything was random for us. Didn't particularly plan for anything. I feel pretty fun that way. Probably just what we all needed from our working lives. Our days are literally planned - what to do, where do have dinner, who to meet tomorrow. 

I think city people should try out this kind of plan. It's less hectic than a planned trip and it's really fun!

Til then!
