There is No Such a Thing like “Perfect Timing” at Work

Posted on: April 5, 2015

Baru-baru ini, gue ngerasa bahwa yang namanya “perfect timing” itu sebetulnya nyaris enggak pernah ada dalam dunia kerja. Berusaha cari “the right time” ujung-ujungnya malah bikin kita melupakan atau menelantarkan hal penting yang ingin kita lakukan tersebut.


Kita ingin menegur kinerja anak buah yang kita anggap kurang teliti, tapi karena tim kita sedang sibuk kejar deadline, kita lantas berpikiran, “Jangan sekarang ditegurnya, supaya dia fokus dulu menyelesaikan pekerjaannya.” Lalu kenyataannya? Selalu ada saja deadline yang baru lagi dan lagi, sehingga pada akhirnya, kita malah jadi lupa untuk memberikan feedback untuk si anak buah. Akibatnya? Hasil kerja dia terus saja banyak salahnya karena dia tidak merasa ada yang perlu dia perbaiki.

Contoh lain, gue pernah menyarankan tim gue untuk ambil kursus Bahasa Inggris di luar jam kerja. Tapi karena masih masa sibuk, kita pikir ya sudah nanti saja kursusnya. Kenyataannya? “Nanti saja” terus menjadi “nanti saja”, kesibukan seolah tidak pernah ada akhirnya, sehingga lewat enam bulan kemudian, masih belum ada satupun yang memulai kursusnya.

Atau contoh yang terjadi sama diri gue sendiri… gue pengen banget ambil cuti panjang, pengen refreshing, pengen jalan-jalan… tapi gue pikir nanti saja kalau ini dan itu sudah selesai gue kerjakan. Lalu kenyataannya? Cuti gue terancam hangus sembilan hari 😦

So guys… if we always wait for the right time just to do the right things at work, then maybe, we will have no time at all. Who knows that tomorrow you’ll be much busier than you are today? I don’t know how it goes somewhere else, but in my workplace, that working madness just never ends.

Emang sih, sangat tidak mungkin kita melakukan SEMUA hal dalam satu waktu yang bersamaan. Yang namanya prioritas tetap selalu ada. Hanya saja kembali lagi, jangan jadikan ‘waktu yang tepat’ sebagai satu-satunya pertimbangan untuk menentukan prioritas. Do what you’ve got to do, no need to wait that right time to come and make your own time instead!

Work smart and make time to do what you need to do TODAY.

I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome! My life has been going great in the past one month. Incredibly busy, but I can’t be happier.
I work my new job during the weekdays and work on my own start-up all over the weekends. It’s tiring and consuming all my energies, but it never feels like a hard work somehow.
I meet many people who are super friendly, I get to work with new challenges that test me every single thing I’ve learned in my entire career, and at the same times, I still manage to pursue my lifetime dream! For the first time ever, I understand how it feels like to love what I do that I never have to work a day in my life.
God, thank YOU for all these blessings! I often said I couldn’t ask for more, yet again, You gave me more and more reasons to be thankful over and over. I’m beyond blessed! Alhamdulillah.
