Drinks for thought, for a change

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old lecturer.

Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the lecturer went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of
cups - porcelain, plastic, glass, some plain looking and some expensive and exquisite, telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand,
the lecturer said:
"If you noticed, all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken up,
leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress."

"What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously

went for the better cups and are eyeing each other's cups."

"Now, if Life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain
Life, but the quality of Life doesn't change."

"Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."


Have a greet week everyone.

CRAZITIVE ARE YOU?

Here i am at one of the place for 'kopi mahal' surfing the net while doing my research and paying my bills online. Sipping my hot chocalate and reading the newspaper wondering about my future.

Yup, Thinking of getting new place to express my creativity. Trying to be a 'Crazitive' person. That the new term of word that i learned 2 days ago after 1 and half hours lectured by the client. She has point there. U must be crazy in order to be creative. So there you go the combination of the two words.

Honestly, i'm having trouble getting new ideas. Dah kering ideas.. all i can do is just copy and inovate from there (which is true). I want to break free and be the best i could be.

Soo.. before the year ends, hope that i will get my IDEAS and CREATIVITY back..

fadli out...
