Interesting. Happy. I have enough life to balance the work. Cunk on earth (2023) is one of the very amusing entertainment I found.

Self help Books

leave a comment »

How to win friends (Carnegie 1936); The subtle art of not giving (Manson 2016) is not psychology book. From zero to one (Thiel 2014) is not business book. I might remove most of books in psychology shelf and business shelf to self-help shelf categories.

Manager: Resources, Account, Project and why Health is Mystery not Myth

leave a comment »

Interesting. Understanding key concept is important e.g Shortage (market phenomenon) vs Scarcity (natural resources). Economics (science, approach) vs Economy (activities)

What Is a Resource Manager? (With Responsibilities)
What does an Account Manager do?
Project Manager vs. Resource Manager: What’s the Difference?

Peter’s Thiel From Zero To One book which may explain where all the confusion with titles comes from:

“Like acting, sales works best when hidden. This explains why almost everyone whose job involves distribution-whether they’re in sales, marketing or advertising- has a job title that has nothing to do with those things. People who sell advertising are called “account executives”. People who sell customers work in “business development”. People who sell companies are “investment bankers”. And people who sell themselves are called “politicians”. There is a reason for these redescriptions: none of us wants to be reminded when we’re being sold

Worklife balance is a myth

leave a comment »

The balance between the work (an activity, an effort to get the money) versus the life (an activity other then the work, is a never ending and very interesting one. Usually I divide the work as workday and the life as the weekend. Sometimes it is true. Most of the time I get higher stress on the weekday and lowe stress at weekend. But not always like that, some weekend even higher due to a lot of activity that happened that day.

Balance is an effort to maintain the dynamics, the composition, with the premise/assumption that too much of everything is bad. This premise should be agreed, as this premise will not be applied for cases that think that too much of work is not bad, or the one that think that work is life, for example: a sea diver instruction will not have any concern on the balance between work and life. A celebrity of reality show, don’t differentiate between this balance. In the event of war there is no need a balance with move and stop.

Worklife balance, the same as justice as a goal (jargon) can be a myth. But as a tools, is can be implemented. Justice is a myth, however Audit is not, examination is not. Worklife balance as goal is a myth, but as a method to slowing down, to think for longer term in the future is valid.

Justice is a myth

leave a comment »

I read some philosophy book, Amartya Sen’s Idea of Justice for example. The statement like this “Reasoning is a robust source of hope and confidence in a world darkened by murky deeds – past and present”, feel to much non sense on it (bs*).

John Rawls’s only under a “veil of ignorance” could human beings reach a fair and impartial agreement (contract) as true equals not biased by their place in society.

In short (true) justice is a myth

Transition Plan at Work, a Trial and Error

leave a comment »

One of the most complicated things in the Project-based Company is the transition plan between one project to another project. In the Operation-based Company (user/industry), unlike the consulting one, transition plan is not existing, it is called resignation or transfer (mutasi).

My approach during the transition plan is more of trial and error. As the driver for transition plan is complex. The trigger for transition plan can be internally -a burn out consultant expecting to have 6 month rotation -met an opportunistic leader to gain influence; an overcharge need-more-people-but-limited-fee situation. But also an external factors such as opportunities in another project. Two important, costly lesson that I learned is to minimize the use of resources on the level of minimum essential forces. I found out that one consultant is always better than three consultants; two consultant is always better than six consultants.

Lesson number two is to avoid resources grooming. Resources grooming/seeding/nursery is an effort to prepare the consultant before the project started thus creation unnecessary internal conflict. Resources grooming is also an effort to cultivate the consultant to be specialized thus creating single person dependency, thus reduce the unit cohesion.

Both lesson: avoid resources maximization and avoid resources grooming as strategy is against the logic. My previous experience, my 10 years of project experience always tell me that the more is the merrier. My gut feeling always told me that competent resources will solve the problem in a better way. That is true, but the cost to execute that strategy is higher than the advantage. Resources maximization always create conflict, horizontally and even vertically, the more people involve, the more difficult the situation would be.

Resources grooming seems to be ok, however as the dynamics of business is faster changing in the rate that resources competency will always be lagged behind. Consultant should follow the business dynamics, not the other way around.

Things that need to be noted during transition period:

1.Morale
Morale is important in the military, because it improves unit cohesion. With good morale, a force will be less likely to give up or surrender. Morale is that conditioned quality, in the individual soldier and in the unit of command, which holds the soldier, holds the unit, to the performance of duty despite every opposing force or influence. This means command and obedience, at every level down to or up. to the individual man.

As of 2018, typical tours are 6-9 or even 12 months’ deployment depending upon the needs of the military and branch of service. Soldiers are eligible for two weeks of leave after six months of deployment.

2.Seniority (Hierarchy/Authority)
This also I found out very important. For thousands of years, military forces worldwide have maintained a strict rank to keep order under the stress of battle. An individual’s placement in the hierarchy determines his or her level of authority. One of the values of the military is respect for authority and this hierarchical structure. Those higher up in the chain of command have earned that rank and deserve respect

3.Stationing and Rotation Policy
I found out that having a sequence stationing from project A to project B under the same PM is ineffective. Consultant eligible to have different project to maintain morale.

Pensiun

leave a comment »

Hal yang paling menakutkan buat saya adalah pensiun. Ceritanya harus dimulai dari Bapak yang pensiun pada usia 50 tahun. Setelah mungkin hampir lima tahun sebelumnya, sejak usia 45 sudah dihantui oleh pensiun dini -diwarnai oleh krisis moneter. Sekarang usia saya sudah 41 tahun, hari-hari seperti bapak sudah sebentar lagi hadir.

Menurut saya, hal yang paling menyebalkan dari pensiun adalah tidak lagi bisa berkarya, tidak lagi dianggap. Hidup bisa dibagi dua hal: Work (kerja) dan Life (kehidupan).

Kerja sendiri bisa dibagi dua hal: Menyenangkan dan Menyebalkan. Kerja bisa menyenangkan: bisa makan enak di hotel berbintang, bisa jalan-jalan ke berbagai tempat, bisa tertawa bersama-sama, bisa merasakan aman sebagai satu tim, bisa diapresiasi. Tapi kerja juga bisa tidak menyenangkan, bahkan bisa sangat menyebalkan: macet, cuaca buruk, teman yang tidak baik, pekerjaan yang susah. Dibutuhkan keseimbangan antara Positive Work (yang menyenangkan) dengan Negative Work (yang tidak menyenangkan).

Kehidupan juga bisa dibagi dua hal. Menyenangkan: tidak bekerja, tidur-tiduran, menonton film, berolahraga, berenang. Tidak menyenangkan: bebersih (chores), menyiapkan makanan, mencuci pakaian.

Kerja harus seimbang. Tidak bisa delapan jam dalam sehari itu terus menerus tegang mengejar deadline.

Menghindari makanan pedas

leave a comment »

Karena umur sudah 41 tahun maka ada banyak makanan yang harus dihindari, harus dikurangi, harus ditambah, harus diatur. Sekilas yang paling signifikan adalah sambal pedas, sambal berminyak, semodel bebek goreng ini sepertinya sudah tidak bisa lagi dipertahankan. Calories hanya satu bagian kecil saja. Ada banyak hal dalam diet yang perlu diperbaiki. Konsumsi kopi, ketepatan waktu makan, konsumsi snack.
