Albert Einstein defined Insanity as “doing the same thing again and again and expecting different result”
I have question to you all, Are you insane? 🙂 I don’t think so.
A Few weeks ago, one of my colleague told me that his wife wrote a book and it’s released in the market. Wow~ I never had anyone around me who is actually the writer of book.(Although I never met her)
Half curiosity and half charity because he works in my team as Junior, I bought that book but now… I end up introducing book to you all because it has something.
Title of that book is “The power of enjoyable time that brings you the value”
From that book, I found one very interesting fact that generation of so called “The 10,000 Hours Rule. Or Devoting heart and soul to one thing to be successfull” is gone.
Do you have friend who has been working for the same job for more than couple of years? then you may heard his or her grumbling like “I’m tired of getting up early in the morning to go to work and come back late night. You know what?, When I get back, I’m just watching TV without even watching it. I think I want to do something for myself but I don’t know what to do.”
Will you say to him, “Hey man~ that’s work, just do it to survive, think about your family”? If I were your friends then I prefer to hear that “Come on man~ forget about the work and do something that you can enjoy after work instead of watching TV. It will bring you the happiness”
If you only live with “Things that need to be done”, You will end up living with “Over thinking”. “Over thinking” makes you exhausted and ineffective in your life.
That’s why you need to be in some kind of “Happy Flow”, for you who does not know the meaning of flow, it means immersing yourself in a situation that you focus on solely one thing which can makes you happy.
It doesn’t have to be something big, something useful but as long as it brings you the value, it’s fine.
“Frog in the well does not know of the great ocean” and the company want us to be the frog in the company.
you will be a frog in the company if you don’t look around for something else.
Have you ever heard of word, Multi-pontentialite? Word that you may not even find from dictionary is the word refer to the people who has talent on many different field.
Leonardo Davinch is the Artist and Scientist as well as mathematician and you know that Steve jobs is well known in IT industry but he use to study Typography when he was in college.
Can we do the same thing?
This book saids that if you can find something attract your interest that you can enjoy and if you can elaborate it to the level of professional then as time goes by you will become specialist.
Although it’s not possible like a flash, it says you can do it.
It doesn’t matter how others see you but what matters are how you see the time you spend.
Be the happy freak on something that brings you value.
How about SW developer who loves English Education or Marketer who create music or Doctor who love handmade characters?
You know what? It’s very hard to win the person who works hard, but happy freak can even win the expert.
Are you bored of doing same work again and again? or you expect your life to be changed in a different way?
That’s insane unless you start something different.
Never stop finding your next well. Be the happy freak that one day, you can be the frog who understand the great ocean.
