It sounds so simple hey. But many falter as they let fear dominates them. That includes me. Sometimes I would like to analyze too much that it can lead to 'analysis paralysis'. It is good to be careful and plan ahead but too much of it will tire you out. I, for, example, want to know that things are in control and I can handle them better, especially things or aspects that I hold dearly in me. But of course fear will only make things harder than they actually are.
So, as for now, know which are controllable and which are not. One thing I can control is how I do in my thesis as I am the author, I do the analysis, I do the thinking (with a great supervision from my SV, Prof Ross) :D. I should know when I put in 100% effort in my thesis writing. So, Ja, it is really time for you to accelerate.
Fortunately, my MIL is coming to save us! :D My MIL is coming to take care of our darling, Mikhael, while we work our butts off in the university. My mom and my MIL take turns to come and visit us here in Brisbane so that we can focus on our thesis writing. Alhamdulillah..
Just at the spur of the moment, I remember vividly that when I was really young (like 4 or 5 years old), my parents asked me what my ambition was. And Ding! Ding Ding! I said, *drum rolls* "A fashion designer"! Bahahahahahaha! I wanna laugh my head off! At school, I tried to score in Arts Education (Pendidikan Seni) and often I scored badly no matter how much effort I put in. I have to admit that my drawing is just hmm, mediocre. hahaha! I could score in everything else and achieve all As but not Arts. hahahahaha! So, when life gives you lemon, you make lemonade.
But I do know that my interests also lie in things that involve marketing, business strategy and things like that. All in all, things which are fast-paced and not mundane which is a lot like how a business field is. Things change at a fast pace. You either take the lead or get left behind your competitors. Being a first mover gives you the extra competitive advantage to succeed in business. But the bottom line is whatever business I am in, I need to ensure my soul is kept happy by making sure that honesty and transparency are the main keys to lead in business. No hanky panky in a bad way. Just honest business. That is how I believe a business will sustain and it will not destroy your soul and eventually yourself.
Bye! back to thesis writing! wish me luck!
