Lupakan Penilaian Orang

Padepokan Budi Rahardjo

Bolak-balik cari judul yang pas untuk tulisan ini, belum nemu juga. Akhirnya saya putuskan pakai judul ini saja.

Ceritanya begini. Ada banyak orang yang terlalu ketakutan ketika mengerjakan tugas (pekerjaannya). Dia takut dinilai buruk oleh atasannya atau orang lain. Atau berharap dapat pujian. Akhirnya banyak waktu dan pikiran yang habis hanya untuk memikirkan bagaimana penilaian orang terhadap kita. Takut gagal dan seterusnya.

Saya punya pendekatan lain. Ketika mengerjakan sebuah tugas atau pekerjaan, saya kerjakan dengan komitmen penuh. Seratus persen. Saya tidak terlalu peduli tentang penilaian orang – bahkan atasan – terhadap pekerjaan saya tersebut. Yang penting bagi saya adalah pekerjaan selesai dengan kualitas yang super bagus. Analogi lain adalah kalau saya diminta untuk memimpin rombongan (tentara, anak buah) dari satu tempat ke tempat lain, maka saya fokus kepada tugas itu. Bagaimana untuk mengantarkan mereka ke tempat tersebut dengan selamat. Mengenai apa kata orang, saya tidak terlalu peduli. Dengan cara ini…

Cara Praktis Membuat Blog Pribadi di WordPress

Nusantaraku

Tulisan ini (dan mungkin serial beberapa tulisan lanjutan) saya tulis dalam rangka memberi informasi yang seluas-luasnya kepada masyarakat kita bahwa adalah baik untuk memulai budaya menulis di dunia internet. Terlebih masih banyak rekan-rekan saya dan mungkin netter lainnya yang masih berasumsi bahwa untuk membuat blog harus  :

  1. mengeluarkan uang untuk memiliki sebuah situs/blog
  2. memiliki dasar pemograman berbasis web
  3. tidak bisa menulis

Asumsi pada poin 1 dan 2 adalah tidaklah benar. Anda dapat memiliki sebuah blog secara gratis yang disediakan oleh berbagai provider, seperti Blogdetik, WordPress, Blogspot, Multiply, Blogsome, dan masih banyak lagi. Sedangkan alasan poin 3 merupakan batu rintangan awal saja, karena pada dasarnya dengan memberi komentar pada suatu tulisan berarti secara tidak langsung kita telah memiliki naluri menulis. Pada kesempatan ini, saya hanya akan memberi panduan membuat blog di WordPress.

12 Tanda Kamu Terlahir Sebagai Calon Pengusaha, Bukan Karyawan Biasa

Habibie's Personal Blog

Repost from http://www.hipwee.com/

Penulis Hardiana Noviantari

Menjadi atasan sekaligus anak buah untuk dirimu sendiri bukanlah hal yang mudah diwujudkan. Tapi jika kamu sudah mendedikasikan dirimu untuk berwirausaha, itulah yang harus kamu lakukan. Kamu perlu mempertaruhkan segalanya untuk memulai usaha: uang, tabungan, semua waktu, dan kreativitasmu. Seringkali orang-orang terdekatmu juga tidak mengerti mengapa kamu harus memilih jalur yang penuh pengorbanan tersebut jika sebenarnya kamu dapat mendapatkan pekerjaan bagus dengan gaji yang terjamin.

Kalau kamu mendapati dirimu dalam situasi tersebut, mungkin kamu memang tidak ditakdirkan untuk bekerja kepada siapapun kecuali dirimu sendiri. Nah, sebelum memutuskan jalan mana yang akan kamu ambil baca dulu nih 12 ciri yang sudah Hipwee rangkum kalau kamu memang terlahir sebagai pengusaha tulen.

1. Kamu Tidak Menyukai Gagasan Bahwa Kamu Mungkin Akan Berakhir Dengan Pilihan Hidup Yang Salah

TV’s Top Ten Most Annoying Girlfriends

iamthemilk

“Never met a woman who knew how to turn off a light. They’re born thinkin’ the switch only goes one way: on.”  –  Shane, “The Walking Dead”

Apparently dearly departed Shane’s pet peeve when it came to girlfriends was light switch decorum. Married (to your best friend) + kid? Bring it on. Light switch flippant? It stops here. I forgive him. Zombie apocalypse is just not as much fun without him, but if I could have him back, if only just for a few minutes, I’d tell him, baby, you could do so much worse:

TV-sphere is full of women who bring out the RAWR in me. I give you TV’s top 10 most annoying girlfriends.

TV's top 10 annoying

1. Lori Grimes on The Walking Dead – Wife? Girlfriend? Libra?

Mixing as we speak.

Mixed signals much?

2. Kelly Kapoor on The Office – Lover of Pink (the Color), Pink (the Singer)…

Girl on a Wire, Gwenda Bond

Books, j'adore

Normally I don’t get very much reading done in November, but I spent most of the month squeezing chapters of this book into my crazy schedule. I even allowed myself to read it before bed, and while I know many of you are probably avid pre-bed book lovers, I never read then. I’m not one of those people who likes to read until they fall asleep, mainly because I have never in my life fallen asleep reading. I didn’t even fall asleep reading in college when I was doing way too much on way too little sleep. It just doesn’t happen for me. My husband actually tried reading to me from a financial document he was looking over in bed the other night, and after he was done (and out like a light), I was completely wired.

Words do not relax me. Books are much too thrilling. Admittedly, I have the…

The militarisation of education: ‘Troops to Teachers’ and the implications for Initial Teacher Education and race equality

RESPECTING CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE

Charlotte Chaddertonpost by CHARLOTTE CHADDERTON
University of East London

The Troops to Teachers (TtT) programme was introduced in England in autumn 2013. The programme fast-tracks ex-armed service members into teaching in schools and is supported both by the current Coalition government, and the previous Labour government.

The White Paper, The Importance of Teaching (Department for Education 2010), gives the main purposes for the introduction of TtT as twofold: firstly, poor standards of achievement in comparison with other industrialised nations, and secondly, a need for increased discipline in schools.

Teaching Black children

RESPECTING CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE

Uvanney Maylor
post by UVANNEY MAYLOR
Director of the Institute for Research in Education, University of Bedfordshire

Below I discuss two concerns which have preoccupied me for a while now.

Since the 1960s’s in schools and educational policy discourse much has been made about the lower attainment of Black children (but specifically Black Caribbean) and the perceived lack of parental valuing of education, and supporting their children’s educational attainment. So it was no surprise to hear a teacher at a conference (aimed at encouraging Black children to consider careers requiring higher education study) in 2009 point to Black educational failure being cultural and innate, and questioning whether ‘Black people’s culture predisposed them to underachievement’. Some might consider this a statement of fact given the persistent lower attainment of Black Caribbean students vis-à-vis White British students. While the comment by the teacher incensed me, it did not affect me as much as…

What’s really in the cereal bowl?

Nourishing Our Children

Corn flakesIn essence – toxic grains.

A typical American breakfast consists of a bowl of cold cereal, which is made by a process called extrusion.

An extruder is an industrial machine that uses high temperatures and pressures to create a variety of shapes such as little flakes, O’s, and shredded grains for shredded wheat or Triscuits. Extrusion is also used to create puffed rice cereal, and rice cakes, neither of which we recommend. According to Sally Fallon Morell, in her article Be Kind To Your Grains … and Your Grains Will Be Kind To You: “Extrusion represents extreme cruelty to our grains.”

The Weston A. Price Foundation asserts that the cereal industry has convinced the United States Food and Drug Administration that extruded grains are no different from non-extruded grains and has contrived to ensure that no studies have been published on the effects of extruded foods on either humans or animals. However
