17 Things I’ve Learned from Niro

Posted on: April 20, 2014

Here are the things I’ve learned during three years working in Niro. They are the things I’ve learned from my bosses and other colleagues, from my own experiences, or simply the things which I’m still working to achieve.

  1. We can’t please everyone at work;
  2. We have to be dare to do the right things. Being a coward won’t do us any good;
  3. Be careful with the one who looks nice all the time. They can be the one who stabs our back before we know it;
  4. The most effective approach in people management… Start nicely, if it doesn’t work, give reminder, if it doesn’t work again, be assertive, and if it still fails, it’s okay to be angry;
  5. Don’t guess, ask instead. Too much guessing what’s on other people’s mind will lead us to a terrible miscommunication;
  6. Have a problem with the boss? Talk to the boss. Have a problem with our staff? Talk to the staff. Bad mouth to our friends won’t solve anything at all;
  7. Don’t talk too much, don’t write e-mails, and don’t make any important decision when we’re angry. Give ourselves a break for a while;
  8. There should be a balance between reward and punishment;
  9. Avoiding the implementation of reward, punishment, and competition is not a good idea. Equality is NOT always a good thing, and equality could lead into an unfairness at work;
  10. Don’t preach anyone else while we still have the flaw in the same topic. It won’t give you any respect from others;
  11. Everything is not always as bad as we think it is… Try to be more positive;
  12. There is no such a thing like too difficult task to accomplish, everything is doable. It’s just the matter of whether the result is worthy to fight for;
  13. Most of the time, success is about our attitude. We’ve got to have that ‘success-attitude’, otherwise, no matter how smart we are, we will always be a nobody at work;
  14. 3 keys of successful career which works for me: exceed other people’s expectation, always do the right things to do (even if it doesn’t always look pretty), and a brilliant mind;
  15. Do not ask or demand more than the amount we have given to the Company. Compensate our flaws with our outstanding performance. We can’t be perfect, but at least, we have to be awesome;
  16. Don’t try too hard to be an angel at work, being a good human is already enough. An angel-wannabe won’t survive the rough bumpy road; and
  17. It’s never easy to determine our real friends at work, but at the end of the road, we will eventually see which one is real or fake. Do make friends in the office, but be careful.

We can’t control whatever life throws at us, but we definitely can control our reaction toward anything that can possibly happen to us.
It’s our decision whether or not we set ourselves free from miseries.
It’s our action that makes our life either colorful or plain boring.
It’s our behavior that leads us to feel merry or lonely.
And it’s certainly our own choices that bring us happiness in life.
Life is too short to be lonely, unhappy, and to be less proud of who we are.
Make the most of every day in your life, be happy with the little and the big things, make your life not only worth living, but also worth to celebrate!
You tell this to yourself, “Happiness starts now!” I’ve been working as a pre-wedding conceptor in past couple of months and I really enjoy seeing how two people so much in love with each other.
With that being said, instead of rushing myself to my own wedding, I’d rather tell myself to take my time. I want my wedding to be a lifetime event, I want this to be something worth fighting for, and for that, I need the right man who also shares the same wishes as mine.
I still have to find someone who clearly tells me what he wants, the one who never makes me have to wonder where he stands, the one who will certainly catch me when I fall. And maybe, it takes times until I find him. But that’s okay! Good things take times, do they? Either you are my friend, enemy, or just somebody I know. The choice is yours.
