Lebih baik letih karena kerja keras dan direndahkan karena belum mampu saat muda,
daripada menyesal menjadi orang tua yang miskin dan sakit-sakitan karena hanya mengejar kesenangan sementara saat muda.

Orang yang tidak bekerja keras saat muda, akan dipaksa bekerja keras saat tua, saat kerja keras sudah tidak mungkin.

Letih karena kerja keras tetap lebih baik daripada letih dalam penyesalan.

Marry someone who is deeply interested in the Deen, because that is who your children will follow.

How Do You Catch Ebola: By Air, Sweat Or Water?
There’s no question Ebola is one of the most terrifying diseases out there. It causes a painful death, typically kills more than 50 percent of those infected and essentially has no cure.
But if you compare how contagious the Ebola virus is to, say SARS or the measles, Ebola just doesn’t stack up. In fact, the virus is harder to catch than the common cold.
That’s because there has been no evidence that Ebola spreads between people through the air. Health experts repeatedly emphasize that human-to-human transmission requires direct contact with infected bodily fluids, including blood, vomit and feces.
And to infect, those fluids have to reach a break in the skin or the mucous membranes found around your eyes, mouth and nose.
But that hasn’t stopped two-thirds of Americans from thinking that the virus spreads “easily,” a poll from Harvard School of Public Health found in August. Almost 40 percent of the 1,025 people surveyed said they worry about an Ebola epidemic in the U.S. More than a quarter were concerned about catching the virus themselves.
Many questions still linger. Is Ebola really not airborne? Can it spread through contaminated water? What about through a drop of blood left behind on a table?
So we took those questions to two virologists: Alan Schmaljohn at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, and Jean-Paul Gonzalez at Metabiota, a company that tracks global infectious diseases.

By Example

“What is your philosophy on leadership? How do you inspire your team to do their best?”

“By example. I’ve always thought to lead by example, sir.”

Kurang lebih dialog pertanyaan seorang Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) kepada Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon), kapten tim rugby Afrika Selatan, The Springboks, dalam film Invictus.

Jawaban yang singkat, tapi menurut Saya itulah yang memang harus dilakukan oleh seorang pemimpin. Kebetulan kemarin sore juga sehabis memberikan materi ke anak-anak SGD tentang “Memipin dan Dipimpin”. Salah satu hal yang dibahas adalah tentanggolden rule dalam sebuah kepemimpinan. Mungkin agak nyerempet-nyerempet dikit lahsama jawaban si Francois ini. Jadi, golden rule ini maksudnya adalah ‘perlakukan orang lain sebagaimana anda ingin diperlakukan’. Kalau pengen didengerin orang lain, maka jadilah pendengar yang baik. Kalau pengen yang lain semangat, maka kita harus lebih semangat daripada yang lain, dan hal lain-lainnya.

Intinya adalah integritas. Jujur. Hal yang harus dimiliki oleh setiap pemimpin. Mengatakan apa yang dilakukan. Melakukan apa yang dikatakan. Menjadi sosok panutan bagi orang-orang yang kita pimpin. Iya, ‘sosok’. Yang bukan hanya perkataannya saja yang ‘baik’, tapi juga perbuatannya. Contoh yang paling terbaik sudah pasti adalah Rasulullah SAW. ‘Uswatun hasanah’ bagi seluruh umatnya. Sosok yang memiliki integritas yang tinggi. Beliau tak pernah mengatakan apa yang tidak dilakukannya. Dan melakukan apa yang dikatakannya. Jujur. Selalu memberi contoh kepada orang lain sebelum menyuruh orang lain melakukan hal tersebut.

Refleksi diri. Jujur, diri ini masih ‘jauh panggang dari api’ menjadi orang yang memiliki integritas tinggi. Padahal saya adalah (sekarang dan atau pernah menjadi) pemimpin bagi orang lain dan pastinya menjadi pemimpin bagi diri sendiri. Malu. Pernah orang tua Saya berkata, “buat apa aktif organisasi di kuliah kalau kamu masih males-malesan?”, waktu saya kalau ke rumah kerjaannya tidur doang, bangun (sering) ke siangan, melakukan hal-hal yang tidak produktif lainnya dan gak mencerminkan etos seorang mahasiswa yang aktif berorganisasi. Pernah juga pas ngobrol pareng Ibu PA “Kamu tuh Ketua Angkatan, harusnya bisa memberikan contoh yang baik ke teman-teman angakatan kamu”, waktu itu lagi curhat kenapa saya ‘sering’ gak masuk kuliah. Ya, mungkin sekarang orang-orang melihat Saya sebagai orang yang ‘aktif’ dan mungkin ada juga yang melihat Saya sebagai orang yang memiliki performa yang buruk. Dan pada akhirnya, Allah selalu memberikan kesempatan kedua bagi hambanya yang ingin berubah. Dan Saya, akan mengambil kesempatan itu. Untuk menjadi orang yang lebih baik. Menjadi pemimpin yang lebih baik. Memberikan contoh yang lebih baik. :)

FAIGK!

Beda Jalan, Kenapa Harus Malu!

Setiap orang punya cita-citanya masing-masing. Setiap cita-cita punya jalannya masing-masing. Jangan mau diintimidasi pandangan semua orang, karena tidak semua orang paham apa yang sebenarnya paling membuat kita semangat mengejar impian.

Ketika kita paham akan impian hidup kita, semestinya kita tak perlu malu atau ragu andaikata kita harus memilih jalan yang berbeda dari manusia kebanyakan. Karena mimpi yang berbeda dari manusia kebanyakan akan memiliki jalan berbeda dari manusia kebanyakan.

Beda jalan hidup dengan orang kebanyakan, kenapa harus malu? Lah wong impian kita emang beda kok.

September 7-12, 2014 is Suicide Prevention Week [U.S. resources]
WHO Doc: Preventing Suicide-A Global imperative
Suicides occur in all regions of the world and throughout the lifespan. Notably, among young people 15-29 years of age, suicide is the second leading cause of death globally. Suicide impacts on the most vulnerable of the world’s populations and is highly prevalent in already marginalized and discriminated groups of society. It is not just a serious public health problem in developed countries; in fact, most suicides occur in low- and middle-income countries where resources and services, if they do exist, are often scarce and limited for early identification, treatment and support of people in need.
These striking facts and the lack of implemented timely interventions make suicide a global public health problem that needs to be tackled imperatively. This report is the first WHO publication of its kind and brings together what is known in a convenient form so that immediate actions can be taken.
The report aims to increase the awareness of the public health significance of suicide and suicide attempts and to make suicide prevention a higher priority on the global public health agenda… It proposes practical guidance on strategic actions that governments can take on the basis of their resources and existing suicide prevention activities. In particular, there are evidence-based and low-cost interventions that are effective, even in resource-poor settings.
