DISC – Your Personality?

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong. Posted in General, Life

Prilaku manusia bisa dikategorikan dalam 4 huruf DISC. Yang artinya lebih kurang:

D = Dominance, 
Kategori orang yg menekankan hasil nyata dan mempunyai tingkat keyakinan tinggi. Tipe No nonsense. Biasanya selalu melihat gambaran besar (sasaran akhir), berani menerima tantangan2, bicara lurus dan tidak bertele-tele.
Biasanya pemimpin besar politik masuk kategori ini. Contoh: Churchill, Lee Kuan Yew, Lincoln dll.

I = Influence,
Kategori orang yg menekankan mempengaruhi/merayu orang, keterbukaan dan hubungan satu sama lain. Prilaku umum: antusiastik, optimistik, suka kerja sama, dan sangat tidak suka kalau diacuhkan.
Biasanya artis2 tergolong ini.

S = Steadiness,
Orang yg menekankan kerja sama, ketulusan dan ketergantungan satu sama lain. Prilaku utama: tidak suka diburu-buru, pendekatan masalah tenang termasuk alon alon asal ke lakon, supportive dan sederhana. 
Biasanya orang2 jenis ini tidak suka perubahan. Tipe ingin hidup tenang, intrinsik agak tidak suka tantangan baru. Memerlukan dorangan seorang pemimpin.

C = Conscientious,
Orang yg menekankan kualitas, akurasi, presisi, keahlian, dan kompetensi.
Prilaku utama: menikmati ketidak-tergantungan pada orang lain (independen), selalu mencari alasan objektif, menggali hingga detail, was was kalau kalau berbuat salah.

Live like a Pencil

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong. Posted in General, Motivational

A Pencil Story
I believe I was born for a purpose!
I hesitated what I am for?
I seek and realized I am born to write!
To write meaningfully…
And I start writing…
Inherently, at times I make mistake…
But I know mistake is only a word…
And I can learn from the mistake…
Mistake is a clue to redo,
Redo in a different way,
I have the in built power
to get up and make correction!
One of the days I do worn up,
I was dull and blank….
However, I believe what is important is inside,
So, I go and sharpen myself,
To dig the inner side of me,
And I find I can write even better.
Although my life is getting shorter,
and will eventually die off..
But I know, what I will leave behind is a legacy for the world to read and learn!!
