Popularity doesn't pay your bills.
Wanting sympathy from others can be likened to child-like need of appreciation.
Book bought this week after after finished reading "David and Goliath" by Malcolm Gladwell.;
1. "The Art Of Thinking Clearly" by Rolf Dobelli
2. "Think Like An Engineer " by Guru Madhavan
And today I learn a new word : theorycrafting
from this lowyat kopitiam entry :
Cognitive errors, there's lots of them., from cherrypicking to heuristic bias, and others;
maybe these faults plus our desire to be famous and liked,
leads us to debate, write and argue,
or maybe, like writing in this blog,
ideas and words trying to reason something, but it is just faulty errors.
When I went to bookstores buying the books, I saw a lot of Islamic books of "Sentap Dakwah".
In English means,
Sentap = provoke
Dakwah = preaching
The authors felt the need to provoke for preaching Islam.
I just sigh my head.
Last 2012 when I resigned, and when I went unemployed until Sept 2013,
I did thought about going to be a serious writer.
Book-writing or article writing,
When I start back in the construction business,
I felt the effort is more honest.
It is just more direct.
You work your ass off, and you get paid.
There's no need to be famous or trying to make people like you whatsoever.
And this blog,
Mostly people who come across just ignore,
Sometimes there are people who read it and gave good reviews and followed you,
And then chatted or emailed or became Facebook friends,
in the spirit of Hari Raya,
I ask all of you forgiveness.
And I keep repeating this to myself,
This blog is nothing, but just like grafitti writing on walls.
Just something that I do on free time.
Take a look at yourself
as an outsider
do you like what you see you can't see what your thinking
you can't feel what your feeling
you could be anyone
i feel safe to fall
in silence or rapture
I knew this song when I bought this CD around 2006 when I first started working.
