Don’t judge the book by its cover !!!
one word … that’s just an outdated theory! why? for me if you can’t make a good cover how come you can make a good book ? because is just the basic recipe for the success of any kind and any form. if you can get the first step right for doing anything, there is a big possibility you will ended up in the good result.
because the first step are equal the foundation. do it right or don’t do it at all ! if your mess up with the first step probably you will mess up in everything in particular.
Good headline … 50% good article
if you are writer or at-least people that has job involving in writing … making the good headlines is very crucial. because good or bad what are you written are based on how much people who read it. good or bad, at least they read it! so headline is just like an first impression. they must have ability to get the attraction so people will read the entire article.
based on that, this is my statement for today, crap news, junk article but they have an very good headlines that will made you click and read the article i will consider it as an 50% good article, compare to the good article but with unintresting headline, i rather call it … 50% bad article
Had enough …
when the last time you are watching soap opera ? actually i don’t really have a time for that. its boring, and it just have twisted situation at the end of every each episode, if your asking me why ? its because they have a reason to put another episode for another week. and its again and again …
that the reason why i never watch soap opera on the tv. blockbuster or atleast a movie is ok, but forget about soap opera, i had enough !
Soap opera in the news channel !
ok, this is the current situation, you definitely must open the news portal, the news channel. because that where you can get the update of the information. about economic, sport or maybe the technology. but there is one section that i try to avoided , local politic section. why ? because is just another form of the soap opera! your are itching to click it, because they had interesting title, but on the other hand you know that just another garbage article that are created for people like us!
so how to handle it ? actually i don’t really know how avoid the soap opera called “local politic section” but so fare i use to set a “short cut link” directly to the news section that i like to read. but on tv? just watch the international news channel … some how its work! 😉
Life is getting complicated ..
i grew up in the 90’s i mean born in 80’s … back then people keep saying that, be a good student, go to college, get a good job you can buy a house, a car and get married. actually is very true if people that saying that is your parent who grow up in 60s or late 70s. but today ?
i can consider that i am lucky enough, or maybe all people that born in early 80s … because most of them still can achieve that (buy a car, a house and get married) unless you really waste your live completely.
Competition, salary and life demands …
lets face it, right now competition is become more fierce. university graduate didn’t guarantee you will get decent job. not at all. because company tend to hire some one who has experience in their CV. it means you need to get a job even before you graduate. so, while study you also need to work … it didint work that way in 80, 90 or even in 2000 … then came the salary, you want get good salary ? who the hell are you ? people willing to get the minimum wages in order to get a job, just a job! unless you got special talent this situation are you must faced every day!
last but not least, is life demands. in 70 to atleast early 2000 you can go to work, get back to home and save your salary to buy a house … that’s it! but nowadays, hang out with your friends or especially your office co worker or your superior is a must. why ? you need to be exist, not for money but only to prove that you are around, exist and when people know your there maybe just maybe it open your access to get promoted. at the end it’s not free and the chance you can buy a house before you reaching 30 is getting slimmer and slimmer ! thats life !
Not just for coffee
few years back, you go to the coffee shop is for a cup of coffee or to get free internet access. but nowadays it little bit more different. yes you still got a cup of coffee, yes you are still using the free internet service but coffee shop is becoming the integral part for urban people. because nowadays coffee shop are positioned as a meeting point.
today every urban people are going to the coffee shop, even though not all of them are not drink a coffee either 😀 but still they are going to the coffee shop every day!
i am here dude !
you will meet many people in the coffee shop, your friend, your co worker and also your business associates. then you take the “selfie” with the person or peoples you meet there, post on your social media. at the end, you just want to show to the world that … “dude i am here, i am exist” … that’s it !
but actualy there is nothing wrong with that. its legal, it didn’t offend anybody else. but lets be honnest right now coffee shop is just like a place that if you weren’t there your not cool ! 😀
You do because you like it …
passion, the term that commonly used by European brand. form Watch maker, Jeweler to their Automotive industry. i dont want to quote from wikipedia or dictionary to explaining about passion. iwant to explain the term and the real meaning of passion in business man point of view
passion is your doing or creating some thing that can give you profit but in the same time you did not treat them as an cash cow, but rather be as your hobby and having more emotional purpose …
Passion it self are not obsesivve
but just want to remind you, that passion itself wont take over your logic. I am talking passion in a business term. because for some people passion it self has a possibility to take over your logic and some how it doesn’t work that way. for instance why so many company that based on selling “passion” product ended up under control of other company that didn’t selling passion at all ? because those company are too much putting passion and forgot their logic !
I like product that has passion on it but some how being too much on some thing can make you dull …
Decision … Decision and Decision
speaking of decision is some thing you should take, in any circumstances you should take decision. for the smallest thing to the biggest one. including what kind of food do you need to take, or weather did you want to resign for your job. is all about decision making.
for me decision is some thing you take very carefully, because it can create a major change for your live, either it will affected on short term or long term …
first of all while you mus to take a decision, one thing you should remember, don’t rush. but not too slow. for me you may take an advice from other people that you already consider as an expert or maybe have more experience than you, but don’t let or make them decide what your final decision are!
so what the conclusion ? actually i don’t really know 😆 because while i was writing this blog i just dont know what to do
did Autumn better than summer ?
or maybe better then any other seasons ? you can call me crazy, but yes i am the one from not many people did prefer living in colder climate rather than in more warmer one. in this case … summer! did i ? yes ! May to August in western Europe or November to February in down under is the place that will avoided at all cost !
why ? because i just don’t like to walking along the road in warm climate, and for me there is not make sense you are ordering hot cappuccino in the coffee shop while the temperature reaching 30 degrees Celsius
Cold and dry …
one thing why i like autumn so much … firs of all i like cold weather but not too cold. speaking of 15 to 8 degrees Celsius. not freezing but its give you whole a lot different experience. and for me living in colder climate can give you more relaxed ambient …
so what next ? actually rather said that autum is my favorite season for entire year …
almost 1/4 of my life …
lets be honest, today i am on my early 30 … and i just realize that almost 1/4 of my life i spend it on italian motorycle, from only as a biker, as a seller or probably of most of my decision. and people who knew me just a bit well, i mean not that close won’t surprize when i said that i named my daugther after the italian engine 😀
1/4 of my life … yes i spend it at italian motorcyce, from Cagiva, Ducati and now with Mv Agusta … so its just like they those bike is just part of me … it just feel awkward for me when iam not on those bike 😀
Maybe because those bike have a soul ?
many Italian bike enthusiast says, those machine have a soul ! should i discuss this part on this article or in another separate topic ? i think is yeah why not ? why not for what ? i mean for discussing the bike with a soul in different and separate topic. but yes i just want to put in a tow or three sentence. those people that said Italian bike had a soul hava a objective point of view. realy ? yet it is! because there is a two thing thats will make as an consideration. first is how the bike are made, and the second one in how its feel when your riding those bike on the road !
i think thats enough for this article, see you in the next one … Ciao 😀
I just cant wait for the next one …
being a biker, and being a person that have a business related to the motorcycle world, for most people says is a dream job. and for me it completely true. Riding bike, selling bike and even reviewing bike is just like you have a job and get paid for playing sony playstation … i admitted is a dream job!
for me one of the best thing in the motorcycle world is when you got vip access to the new product of motorcycle. it means you got invitation to come to the motor show not as an visitor but as an professional.
Eicma italy, Intermot Germany or maybe Tokyo Motor show … is up to you
the good thing is in the annual motorcycle show event they gave you few option, which one that you want to attend, or maybe should i put, which one that you can get the VIP access ? so far there is a few option of motorcycle show that can be categorize as a world first class motorcycle show … for me EICMA in milan is the far most better, the reason is simple, i got access and have a very good and strong relation with italian motorcycle manufacturer, i know who in charge and the most important thing they (those in charge) at least know who i am 😀
but that not all, Italy in November is can be describe on of the best place to visit on earth 😀 maybe i,am exaggerating but yes in term of the best place or country to visit, but if you combine with the motorcycle even that they held in Milano … i thing i din’t exaggerating at all 😀
in western world been is just a beverages for adult …
i spend 7 years living or more precisely study in down under. yest it located in pacific and today their society is heavily influenced by Asian culture especially from far east, but generally Australia is still and remain called “western” … oh yah by the way Australia is still under reign her majesty monarch .
why i started the topic about cultural problem ? first of all it begins when you bringing your habit that you got from other country to the another country. it many thing such as … drinking a beer ! yes as simple as that! come on? is just a beer ! whats wrong with that ?
In some part of the world is consider as a “sin” or “beverages for thugs” …
i dont want to discuss about religion in here, not at all. but you and i should admit that this simple thing that called a beer have a variety perception. if you come back about maybe 15 to 20 years ago, drinking beer in my city it will considered as a thug. yes, thug! and i will understand that, because that time people who drink a beer is a thug, and they drunk in the side of the road and create a mess and most of the time doing petty crime. not until early 2000 when the beer culture for upper and educated people arrive in town. but even tough the come in style it still needs at least five more years to be accepted as a another kind of culture.
so my conclusion ? bringing new stuff form part of the world to another part even to your home country is not that easy! especialy when it started as a “bad thing” or had a bad image. but by the process and time it will work. but remember, dont drink and ride / drive. and dont drink a beer if you are under 21 … cheers !
