You know that I am always interested in what Steve Jobs did and does. Here's a link to what he said in a commencement address at Stanford University (June 12, 2005):
It's beautiful. Read it and tell me what you think.
I, frequently, give talks to university students. Definitely some of what he said will be part of my future talks.
One of the things that I admire from people in the West is that many of them really love what they are doing. Here, I've seen people with no passion. They just go to work day by day not knowing what they want. It's a pitty, really. Maybe it's because we have too many things to do. Heavier burdens? I am not trying to get excuses, but we do have a heavier burden. I can see that many Indonesians would excel (easily?), if they were in the West. But, it might be because we "stay hungry? in Indonesia"
I want to be an agent that can change the situation in Indonesia, to show that one can love one's work. How? By showing them how I did/do it. Walk the talk. Apparently, it's not so easy, but I love what I am doing.
