Of work and leadership

Today I attended a Business and Leadership sharing by Shell GM Commercial Fleet.

Just wanted to post here so that I can refer again and again.

What makes a talent? How do you measure a good talent?
His answer - over delivery. Maksudnya if boss mintak 80, kita bagi 160.

Self reflection: Ramai yang mengadu buat kerja banyak, bonus tak banyak, promotion lembab, etc.
Selalu carik alasan boss play favor. Cuba bayangkan if bos sayang kita? Ada kita cakap bos pilih kasih.
His sharing hit me a lot. Duhh...i have too many things in my backlogs and im too far of "over-delivery".
Will keep this in mind!

2nd, the man I adore yang sekarang kat Petronas. Kawan2 di PETRONAS, stop complaining and grab that opportunity! Serious he is a very good leader and very humble. Jarang sangat kita dapat local talent like him. Masa his farewell, we approach him personally and ask him quick tips on how he move up the corporate ladder so fast.

U know what he replied "I keep taking tasks. More tasks. Any tasks. Until I never notice that I move up"

Please read about his story here. http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2010/5/8/business/6191155&sec=business. I read this over and over again n never fails to inspire me.

I really love observing leaders. Love to analyze what makes them different. I am very disappointed that media highlights too much on artists...whereby actually the corporate leaders are actually the foundation who builds our nation.

And I believe, hardwork pays..maybe not today, maybe not in your paycheck. But it will show. I am confident to say this :)

Extracted from Anuar "“I don’t have a set destination of where I want to be. I can only build my capabilities and perform better than my counterparts and I know I will go somewhere.”
Happy working everyone!

Good News vs. Bad News

What worst than bad news?

When u received a good news, and it turns out bad news..

Currently my days has been up and down. Today I got very good news and tomorrow bad news. haha!

Anyway, I appreciate my sister n friends words the most

"Rahmahhhh keep your LOA kuat. Jangan fikir negatif. Anything can happen"
"Allah has better plan for u"
"Jangan risau apa orang kata, u have achieved a lot"

Sometimes, not sometimes, most of the times I like to keep all the good news by myself. Coz our culture has proved that we are more excited hearing someone's bad news than good ones. If we share our good news we will be misunderstood by them by being show off... Or...the good news will be spread out and it turns out to be a totally different news. Haih. I'm tired of it..

And I dont understand how could a person can make a joke out of it? Maybe im being too sensitive. Whatever it is, lesson learnt.

On another note, I dropped a note to one of my admired GM, he replied with a footnote "Stay Hungry! Stay Foolish!" He has admired me also to not be afraid of chasing my dream, even I will experience people making joke of me.

Happy puasa everyday and be positive (thats for me actually! LOL)

lisa magazine & sugartown

Sorry for long silence. Life has been crazy lately. Haha! Anyway i am so grateful that sugartown is featured in lisa magazine. Alhamdulillah. But i am happier when sugar town has new members. Rasa hepi sangat. Proses pemilihan ni agak cerewet la. Haha. Tp alhamdulillah they are very very gold n committed. Upah yg diberi tu mmg tak cukup. So welcome to ainaa n amanina. Mula2 hanya cik orkid n tunang n tirah as designer. Then syuhada as our "agent" kat kuantan n my ank sedara, alia. My sis pun katanya nak bukak di sabah. InsyaAllah, one step at a time :-)
