Sudah beberapa bulan pandemi COVID-19 di Indonesia berjalan, saya selalu berpikir kira-kira apa yang bisa saya lakukan untuk membantu.

Remember ‘Green-Washing’? These Days ‘Well-Washing’ Might Arise for Mental Health in Workplaces Issue

Thursday, October 10th was commemorated as the World Mental Health Day (read more HERE). Glad that many in my networks were actually aware on this as shown by their posts; including what activities they did in their offices to commemorate that day. “Every 40 seconds, someone loses their life to suicide” – that’s the title …

Be Mindful: An Over-Promise Workplace

Disappointment usually caused by a gap between high expectation and low reality. The gap could be stimulated by oneself (e.g. because expecting/imagining too much) – or else, from another party (e.g. because an over-promise) which eventually led to higher expectation of oneself. My reflection tonight brought my thought to see this over-promise issue in workplace …

It’s been almost 2 months since we started to live in the year of 2019. I personally feel that time moves faster than I ever experienced before.

A Short Note: Learning in Difficult Situations

Can we undo what we’ve done in the past? An obvious answer: no. Yet we can do something else for now and in the future. We made mistakes – or maybe because only we put them into several contexts, they became mistakes. And obviously we only could take some learning points from those. The question …
