Saya Cari Caranya

Salah satu work ethic yang sangat membantu gue dalam perkembangan karir adalah ketika diberi pekerjaan yang gue belum pernah lakukan dan belum tahu cara persisnya gimana dan ditanya:

Kalau mau seperti ini bisa ngga mas?

Gue jawab (dengan pertimbangan gue paham beberapa dasarnya tapi belum pernah menyatukannya sebagai solusi yang utuh):

Saya belum pernah buat yang seperti itu, tapi saya mengerti dasarnya begini, begini, dan begini. Biar saya coba cari caranya.

Coba cari tahu caranya dulu. It helps.

The Coldest Weapon

“My father believed that confidence was the most important thing you could teach a child. Even when I was little, he would do things to make me feel important. One of my earliest memories is a taxi driver asking my father to put me on his lap, so he could fit one more passenger. But my father insisted that I deserved my own seat. He’d bring me to work with him and trust me with jobs. He’d take apart mechanical devices and ask me to reassemble them. If I made a mistake, he’d never punish me. He’d even help me hide my report card if I made a bad grade. He was mainly concerned with building my confidence to attempt new things, so that I could always learn by doing. Now as an adult, people call me crazy for attempting things that seem ‘out of my depth.’ This bridge is one example. Nobody is prouder of this bridge than my father. He collects all the newspaper articles.” ——————————————— Leila Araghian and Alireza Behzadi are the young designer and builder behind Tehran’s recently completed Tabiat Bridge. Construction of the bridge was completed in 2014 despite the difficulties of international sanctions. The bridge has become a cultural and physical centerpiece of Tehran, and Leila captured the imagination of the architecture world by winning the right to design it at the age of 26.
