What’s your Story? — Some call it CV, some use their Instagram to channel their Personal Branding, some write books, some do YouTube, some remains underground and let Word Of Mouth do the magic.

Let’s deep dive together this Saturday, 14.00 at Dattabot, Senopati and learn to use the Story approach for your life and career.

If you need to be further convinced, check my work @captainruby @captainruby.manifesto @wanderbites.co @creatrip.id and see how I use different Story to direct content and build presence. If you’re not convinced, thats okay too. Maybe its not for you, maybe that’s even more of a reason to come and hear for yourself. Your call, @limitlesscampus just open up opportunity to do this conceptually free with it’s pay as you wish program.

When the light falls on the right time of the day, beauty is effortlessly captured. Kadang jepret berkali kali ga bagus”, tapi pas golden hour, almost effortless fotonya jadi cakep.

Tahun ini diajarkan soal timing. Kadang lebih baik memang menunggu saat yang tepat, momen yang tepat, season yang tepat dibanding kita paksakan. Kalender manusia dan kalender Yang Di Atas bisa berbeda. Kalau kita belum siap, ya Dia akan menyiapkan kita dulu. Problem hadir karena timing kita dan timing Yang Di Atas sedang dicocokkan. Kalau kita benar benar mau keinginan kita terjadi, jangan lari, hadapi, belajar, supaya kita berhak menikmati restu-Nya.

Bucket List ✔️ Adding Shuriken, Blow Pipe and other #Ninja skills to my LinkedIn profile soon 😁🤘🏻— Swipe to see the slomo videos.
_
There’s a first time for everything and I’m glad I had my ninja moment no matter how short. Thanks to @impactfactoryid @creatrip.id for making it happen. I guess on this one, I’m gonna keep the caption short and let the vids do the talking.

Belajar. Berkarya. Berbagi. 
_
A simple mantra to get me going. It used to be just #money #money #money and then life brought me to an experience that shifted my purpose. What is money without enjoyment? And then it became all about #passion #passion #passion. And not stopping at that, the universe keep pushing my capacity. Whenever I felt I’m on top, it reminds me with one problem to another. I realized, no matter how fulfilling working on your passion, one can’t live from passion alone. 
_
Today, at exactly a decade of my journey, Belajar, Berkarya, Berbagi, sums up my learning. It gets me up in the morning. It reminds me to not just focus on what I want to achieve but who I needs to be. Its a compass for my decisions. Including decision to share every month with workshops, mentorship and many other ways. Thank you Tupperware for accommodating and all 50 of you that came and gave such positive feedback. 
_
What about you? What’s your mantra? What’s your experiment in life? What can you conclude so far about what life is?

Not all millenials are as shitty as we stereotyped them. As I travel I’m seeing more and more TALENTED INDONESIANS overseas with inspiring stories. Here’s Griselda or Guri as her Japanese peers call her. A graphic designer with a passion for comics.
__
Fought her way to be in Japan, the capital city of Manga to learn more about it. Worked extra hours at Matsuya to fund herself on top of studying daily. Her dream is to publish her own comic one day. She has 7 stories lined up ready to execute. Waiting for the time she perfected the craft (like she did with illustration of me) and market / fortune favors her.
__
Thank you for the chat, the drawings that definitely look better than the actual haha. And the coffee. Borrowing @ajfernando’s term, love making friends #fromonlinetooffline. 
Best of luck, Guri! 🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻

So you have an idea? Or many ideas? Good, but frankly its worthless unless you act on it. Or at least plan on how to act on it. Because even when you do, it still may not succeed, let alone letting it dormant in your mouth. Take my experience with @bakecheesetart — was and still my favorite cheese tart.
_
My first encounter was in May 2014. I immediately bought dozens of it, send it over to a few friends who’s good with baking. Remember this @feronikaang @jtayu @patrickhandali ? We tried and tried but cannot make a reasonable price that’s gonna meet the economics of it. In order to make it just as good, it’s gonna cost more than 30.000 apiece. And we wanna deliver something really good to the market. Not just a copy. After a few months we sorta let go the idea. I personally emailed Bake and asked for franchise opportunity but no response to no avail. Fast forward to 2017, it has finally entered Indonesia, after opening first in Singapore and Hongkong. And tons of copies with the same idea has emerged. We did a review of all of them at @wanderbites if you’re curious. Search for We Try Everything: Cheesecake. 
_
Do I regret now seeing the cheesetart success? Nope. I regret if I didn’t make any action at all. I did what I can, I did my best at the time. A lot of variables come into play to make an idea happen, I just didn’t have enough resources to support me. But I’m glad having exercised the idea rather than talk shit again and again but never actually work it out to make it closer to reality. At the very least, I learned a lot in the process.

Very easy to get caught between #Entrepreneur and Wannabepreneur. Let’s draw a line in the sand from now. The difference is in the execution. GO DO!

Everybody will have that one moment of “SCREW IT, I’M DOING THIS NO MATTER WHAT” at least once in their life. For me, it was when I decided to go ONE WAY on my dream to be an entrepreneur despite of the fact I only got less than $6000 in my bank, and an apartment mortgage to pay. 
_
WHY I DID IT? It’s a more important thing to discuss. I just had to. On my journey of self discovery I realized that I will not rest well at night if I stay on the comfort of 9-to-5 at a company that’s owned by one of my uncles. I will not forgive myself at 50 when I’m old and ended up saying “You should’ve listened to your passion.” And so I made the jump in 2012. Haven’t look back since. 
_
This friend of mine, Anthony has just taken a BOLD step. He moved to Japan three months ago because he’s just fed up of Indonesia. Fed up of being under the wings of the dad. He had his “SCREW IT, IM DOING THIS NO MATTER WHAT” moment. He wanted to do what he love and took life by his own rules. And fortune favors the bold, bros. He got here in Osaka on a student visa, found a job, for the first time ever, he’s fully independent and on his way to make his mark in the world. 
_
Give him @antzl33 a shoutout in the comment below + a word of encouragement. He can use even the smallest nudge of support! Show him your generosity guys!

It’s a further thought on my previous post on HAPPYNESS. Not to say we have to fake it when we’re facing difficulties, but rather seeing that “all is well” at the end. Atau kalau kata temen gue: “semua baik baik saja” pada akhirnya. Here’s an excerpt from one of my recent reads.
_
"In the long run, completing a marathon makes us happier than eating a chocolate cake. Raising a child makes us happier than beating a video game. Starting a small business with friends while struggling to make ends meet makes us happier than buying a new computer. These activities are stressful, arduous, and often unpleasant. They also require withstanding problem after problem. Yet they are some of the most meaningful moments and joyous things we’ll ever do. They involve pain, struggle, even anger and despair—yet once they’re accomplished, we look back and get all misty-eyed telling our grandkids about them." 🤘🏻🙏
_
And I couldn’t agree more. Thank you @markmansonnet. And here’s a 🤘for friends who just finished marathon @cathfish @himawansutanto @hartono.haris

#kindle #happiness #handsinframe
We were all once a happy-go-lucky hippo until adulting changed us. Bills, mortgage, wedding, kids, and what not. Jadi lebih sering worry than happy. Padahal worrynya kebanyakan ga jadi kenyataan juga. Well, ini lagi happy happynya, dan semoga bisa selalu happy apapun kondisinya. Easier said than done, but let this be a self reminder — CHALLENGE: Kalau ada yg lg cape, lelah, bosan, mari kita #Boomerang or kita #LompatChaplin, niscaya mood jd lebih baik 😘🤘🏻

Taking the #SeikoGuigiaro to its home base, the flagship Seiko store in Ginza (yep, the one in the huge building in the background). A lot of people got this brand on their wrist but missed the interesting history behind it. 
_
(1) Seiko was the first in the world to produce quartz watch. And even though they created the movement and parts, they still chose to open the technology for public, while if they want they can easily patent it. 
_
(2)The founder, Kintaro Hattori started the company back in 1881 under the name Seikosha, that means Home of Exquisite Workmanship. Seiko now can mean either exquisite or success when translated to Chinese. If you’re familiar with Alba, Orient or Grand Seiko, these are also their brand, created to reflect different market segment. 
_
(3) Moon watch. While Omega claimed this title with their Speedmaster, there’s actually a Seiko watch that’s also went to the moon. It’s a 6139 calibre worn by Colonel William Pogue on his Nasa mission. Oh and it’s also vying for the first automatic chronograph title. 
_
Enough trivia. But to summarize, wearing a watch on the wrist is more than just telling time for enthusiast like us. It’s being part of a story or history. Like the one I’m wearing, this same watch is a limited edition release of the one worn by Sigourney Weaver in 1986 Alien. The year I was born. And the designer, Giugiaro, is the guy who designed BMW M1. Now that’s more than just horology, bros!

Food connects. And connects them well.

I met Nad, few years back. She’s probably the only one who did food video passionately and did it really well with flair. I still remember being in the same bazaar in GI, working on projects together and sharing the stage at last year @ideafestid. Now, @kokikutv is one of the largest food channel (if not the largest) in Indonesia, with a well established MCN of people in the food industry. Kudos! Can’t for our upcoming collab.
_
And Kevin, a wiz-kid in food really. He’s an all in one package. Cooks well, writes well, and what a personality. Two recipe books and heading @kenduri.id, an Indonesian food centered magazine, he’s gonna be our next Bourdain. Wait and see! 
_
These are interesting time for food in Indonesia and Indonesian food abroad. We all contributed in one way or another. Glad to be a part of this generation that make this happen. If you don’t get what I’m saying, google this “Episode IV: A New Hope For Indonesian Cuisine.”
