Corruption : Wrong way to achieve happiness (#1)

Beep beep!! Hello people. So sorry for lack of update and blogwalking. I'm just busy with nothing now since it was holiday so I promise to post often from now on. ;)

How's goin? Do I miss some news from blogsphere? I just heard a good news from twitter that Kak Diana Rikasari won IYCE. Whoah, it's sure a big good news for Indonesian enterpreneurship-world. She's indeed a inspirator. Congratulation Kak Di! 

So, I come here with a project from Aleena Deandra from Junebug and me called a chained post. The idea is to share your opinions and criticisms towards one social-issue that we picked, then you get to ask another particular person to do the same, continuing your work until it all becomes one long-chained post from different people, full with our different opinions, ideas and criticism. Here're the rules you should follow :

1. You can add your words (all in full English, we don't care how bad your grammar is, no exception) directly after the last person's work, without adding any break whatsoever, so it becomes one clean and well-structured essay. You must add for minimum 1 paragraph and maximum 3 paragraphs.

2. You can add between other person's words, only if it's make sense and you don't get to change other people's words. You can also add some pictures and/ videos and/ links or other necessary stuffs to support your reliable words.

3. Your opinions, critics and ideas can be pros or cons, depends on how you think towards the issue (including the reasonable explanations).

4. After writing your words, you must change the number before the hastag on the post's title (#1) into the next number (for instance #5 becomes #6). Then, you must address this post to ONE particular person you like to continue the chained post. You can just simply add their url on the bottom right of the post (and inform them through any social networks to do the post).

5. Remember, this can only be done once, but you can participate to other chained post (so far, we only have two, from Aleena Deandra and Rizki D. Kelimutu) if you're invited to do so.

6. NOTE : You can't copy or steal this post if you aren't invited, as well as not making the same thing without further notice. But you can kindly promote it.

7. Copy the exact same post & disclaimers as they are.


Indonesia still include on the world's 100 most corrupt country in 2011. Guess why? I think it's because people always look for a job that generate much money for them. Let's go into our deep heart. What you exactly searching for in your life? is it money? I'm not gonna be a hypocrite here. I admit that money is important. But it's not the most important thing in life because we live here particulary for looking for happiness. Don't you agree with me? What we doin everyday, we eat, we buy something, we share love, that's just for the sake of earn more happiness for our self. I know this maybe kinda weird to relate the corruption thingie with happiness. But I have a thought that it less or more relate each other. Sometime they (the corruption doers) do the corruption thingie for the sake of their (or their family) happiness, isn't? So, why don't we teach them how to achieve a happy life with the other way (instead of money, I mean). 

I know one common thing that never fail to make someone happy. That is to do something that they like. If you like to write, then be a writer. If you like art, then be the artist anyway. I know it will not gonna be that easy. But that is the key. Get a job that relate to what you love to do! I remember, Steve Jobs also have ever said that 'we have to try to get know what we love to do'. That's the basic rule of life. The point is, I believe when we have a job that relate to what we love to do, we gonna simply being happy and never have a thought to do something bad to gain more happiness.
