Openmindedness

Seeing something good in every person does not mean seeing every person good. Same goes with ideas, opinions and beliefs. If you can't distinguish the difference, then you are not yet capable to create a balanced view.

Tactical Irony



A leader must be a good tactician. He must have a strategy which is easily conveyed and related to by his followers to move his team forward, and another one which will be used against the competition that they will not be able to decipher it and only the trusted and helpful allies will know about it. But once the common followers start saying that they have a full grasp of their leader’s strategy against the enemies and they call him a genius for it, and they are right about what they say about the tactic, then that means the opposite about the leader.

Stay Humble and Confident

Confidence in realizing that you understand what you are doing is good. Overconfidence that you act like others have no idea of what's going on thinking like you can always outsmart them most of the time ends in disaster. Be confident. Be humble. Be calm.

Wag Kasing Sobra

Marami na rin ang nagising. Sa wakas. kung tutuusin, dapat masaya pa nga ako. Kasi yung ilang beses na rin naming pinananawagan noon ay tila ba narinig na ng marami ngayon. Kaso ang problema, mukhang nabigla din sa pagkagising. Di pa nagkakape kumbaga. Baka need muna rin natin mag-inat inat at magmumog kaya baka di pa maganda ang pagkakamulat ng mata.

Mahirap ang napapasobra sa kahit anong bagay. Gasgas na ang katagang ito pero tama naman talaga. Ang kulang sa tin madalas ay yung balanse. Lalo na sa usaping panlipunan, pag masyado natin tinodo ang galit o pagsuporta sa isang panig, nagiging bingi tayo o bulag sa posibleng mga tamang punto sa kabilang partido. Pakiramdam natin ay tama na tayo sa lahat ng pagkakataon. Malabo yun. Pero minsan, dumarating nga yung punto na nagigising din naman tayo. Kaso ang problema, pag nagising, biglang kabig naman din sa kabilang side ng todo. Todong kanan papuntang kaliwa. Walang gitna. Samantalang kadalasan, ang pinakaligtas, paborable at malapit sa katotohanang sagot ay nandun lang banda.


Tulad ng mga bumaligtad na sitwasyong ito sa baba. Nakakatawang nakakainis na makita mo sila na napunta na halos dun sa tinuturo mong lugar nila noon pa. Kaso tumodo kabig at lumampas pa. At pinapalabas pa ngayon na ikaw ang di nakakaunawa. Mapapakamot ka na lang minsan dahil di mo na alam ang irereact mo. Ansarap sanang sabihin na "ako pa ngayon".
 
1. Tulad ng marami noon na sobrang puri kay Pnoy na ang tingin nila dati ay "chosen one" sya. Pero nung nadismaya na sa kanya ay naging sobrang galit naman at mas galit pa sila kesa sa min na di bumoto sa kanya na tipong kahit anong maattach sa pangalan nya ay ayaw na nila. 

 2. Yung mga sobrang isumpa si GMA dati kasama na ang asawa at mga anak nya, marami ngayon ay ok na sila at wala na raw kasalanan at inosente ang tingin kay GMA at napaginitan lang daw ng dilawan. 

3. Yung mga dati na sobrang galit naman sa China na pati sa usapang Gilas e dinamay si Chowking at namumula ang mga ilong sa list of richest Pinoy na puro Chinese names ang pangalan na tingin nila ay mga mapagsamantala sa ting mga kababayan, ngayon marami sa kanila sobrang love na nila ang China. 

4. Yung dati na sobrang iniidolo ang US sa mga polisiya nito at nakiki-greatest president pa kay Obama na sana daw ay maging tulad nya ang pangulo natin habang kami sa pro-life advocacy ay matagal nang nagwawarn sa mga pakulo nila sa atin na pagtulong na halatang may hidden agenda, ngayon sila naman ang todo magalit na dinamay na ang buong America na nagkukunwari lang daw na mababait at di na raw natin mapagkakatiwalaan.

5. Yung dati sobrang magshare at magforward pa ng articles dun sa mga news sites na patungkol sa kasiraan ng ibang pulitiko, mga polisiya sa gobyerno na di naman talaga maganda pero pinupush nila, at kung ano ano pang mabibigat na usapin habang dati pa kami nagpapaalala na pag-ingatan ang pinapakinggan, pinapanood o binabasa kahit ano pa yan sa news sa tv man, radyo, dyaryo o social media. Nagwarning na kami na may pondo yung ilan sa mga yan para palaganapin ang ilang mga agenda na di naman talaga pabor sa tao. Tapos ngayon, yung mga sobrang nagpapaniwala sa lahat ng binuhos na balita sa kanila dati, sila ngayon ang nagpuputok ang butsi na "bias bias bias" daw lahat.




Kaya kinakabahan ako para kay Pres. Duterte eh. Malamang nito after 6 yrs, sa kabila ng mga di ko gustong ginawa nya ay inaappreciate ko pa rin ang lahat ng maganda nyang accomplishments habang pinagtatanggol ko na rin sya sa mga hardcore fans nya ngayon na may bago na namang magiging idol pagdating ng panahon at galit na galit na sa kanya. Wag kasing sobra. Wag puro puso. Isip din. Dapat sakto lang at magtira para sa sarili.

Questions?

Questions can either be empowering or dangerous. It depends on the intent of the one inquiring. If the question given was for the purpose of finding answers, it helps not only the one who is asking but also those who are listening. It also opens an opportunity for those who know the answers to transfer knowledge to others. But if the question was blurted out simply to create a statement and the person who gave it is not open to responses, it becomes dangerous to him, to those who sensed the intent and agreed to the insinuation, and to those who will try to answer just to be shut down by the closed minded lot.

My Most Important Mistake

I want to say something to the young ones today who are trying to change the world. Maybe this experience of mine would help them. I'm not that old. Maybe we are just separated by a decade or a half. But those 10 years I managed my time wrongly could spell a better future for you. I'm not living a miserable life and I'm thankful with all that I am today but somehow I could have done better if someone older told me this thing before.


I see a lot of people who spend their youth looking for inspiration. They would try to meet and get in touch with those men and women they look up to. Well, it's not bad at all. Listening and reading from their success stories would help. They might give you a thing or two about fighting obstacles. Maybe a word from them that would light the fire up. 


What's wrong is when these things occupy your time more than it should be. Inspiration is like a drug of the mind. You should not overdose yourself with it or else, it puts you in a dangerous position to think that you can do everything. It sounds good, right? No. You can't do anything if you aren't learning and training yourself with the basics, the techniques and the details. Without these things, you'll be like pumping a balloon up with too much hot air in it without actually knowing where to go. Sure, you might end up in a good place. But the point is, you don't have control of the destination if you lack the skills.


There are not a few managers who think that inspiration is what mostly needed by their men for engagement. It is, but only with the right amount. The innovators and successes of today spent their lives training, learning and practicing. Maybe they read quotes, self help books or heard advice from others. But if you check on their stories, they burned 99% of their time making themselves better than 99% of the people that also tried to do the things they do. They coded thousands of programs, wrote hundreds of stories and researched more different ways to improve many things. That is how they arrived into where they are now. And to the not so young, it is never too late as many of the successful people in history only started doing what they do in their 40s and 50s. 


Inspiration is a good thing. But I see it coming naturally when you find that thing you are interested doing with many years of your life. Inspiration would only push you an inch in doing things you don't like at all. But finding that one you love doing, most especially in something you are naturally good at, or if not, it is where you are willing to spend thousand of hours practicing and training, add the inspiration to it and you will reach thousands of miles.

Acting Beyond Sacrifice

There are instances in life where you find yourself trapped in a sinking ship and the only way to save the rest is for someone to sacrifice himself, do a kamikazee and bring down the biggest enemy with him and provide all who were left on board a chance for survival. Someone has to play the hero part and die for the rest.

But if you choose to take that kamikazee part, unlike in a real war, you'll live to see what happens next. Sometimes, there are after effects that are bitter to swallow. Just remember, it's part of the sacrifice. And that your goal then is for the whole ship to survive which is what satisfies your chosen action.

And since you're alive, you'll have another chance to regroup and reset your goals while you wear that experience as a badge and as a lesson towards your next battles.
