The Power of dreams March 6, 2009

Sometime ago I went to  my colleague house where I met with one local college professor. He told me that every semester, the first thing that he would ask his students to do on the first day is to write down their dream or their wish on paper in first 5 minutes of the class.

So I asked him why he wants to waste time with that ‘thing’? He said the reason he did that because based on the Harvard University study on her alumni, 87% students failed to find a good career, 10% are successful, and only 3% are truly successful. Interestingly enough, the assets of those 3% are much higher than those 97%.

The study also revealed that, the different that this 3% with the rest is because they have a dream and they write it down so that they can achieve their target. The 10% have a dream but never write it down while the 87% never dreaming, maybe day dreaming only, they just study and want to pass with good grades only.

I’m not sure about the actual percentage because if I ‘m not mistaken I came across that article regarding that study before, but the rational of the story is to remind everyone that we must plan to work and work that plan so that we could achieve our dreams.

I believe all of us also have a dream to be a successful individual at least to graduate from VU, but how about now ??? and I’m sure all of us were asked about future short term and long term plan whenever attending interviews. Still remember what was ur answers, or main taruk, belasah je?

To conclude, have you write down your dreams? Have you achieved that dreams? If not I believe it is not too late to start now so that together we could realize our true meaning of life and be prepared for whatever future shortcomings. After all u r who u r, not because of ur parents or others.

Remember, life is full of uncertainties, unless u r prepared and well plan to face the challenge… r u??? to be continued

P/S Surah Wal-Asri, “ Demi masa sesungguhnya manusia itu dalam kerugian, kecuali yang beriman dan beramal soleh, dan mereka yg berpesan dgn kebenaran dan mereka yg berpesan dgn kesabaran”
