How was your day? Great? I hope yes. hehe .Mine started very well actually sebab pagi-pagi I was inspired by these gentlemen walaupun ngantuk gila nauzubillah, but I am wise. haha
So, harini nak point out satu benda baru yang aku nak namakan, the "Power of Praise". Praise is one of the positive feedback given by person A to B or to the crowd. Sah-sah korang tahu apa maksud dia kan. Lol. ape lah aku ni. Siapa yang tak suka kena puji kan? but, lupakan segala pujian luaran tu. Apa yang aku nak maksudkan kat sini is, pujian yang melibatkan attitude which pujian tu kau akan dapat bila orang tu dah kenal kau, dah made a conversation dengan kau. Rasa special kan? So, cerita kat bawah is my observation which for me, "satu pujian dah mampu menceriakan hari seseorang". Pernah try?
Today, macam biasa aku naik bas shuttle USM, and kebetulan ada dua lelaki yang baya-baya senior lecturer lah, sorang foreigner and sorang lagi orang local duduk kerusi depan aku.
Nak dijadikan cerita, as I was crunching my kerepek that I brought from home, they were talking about their research. Fyi, shuttle bus USM ni kebanyakan yang naik adalah student Master n PhD. So aku suspect mungkin diorang ni PhD. candidate.
They talked so loud sampai aku boleh dengar every detail of their experiment methods. Haha .. Then I heard the local guy said,
"I agree, the research you're doing is very fundamental in our industry" dengan nada yang bersungguh and he elaborated. Aku malas nak dengar. Foreigner tu of course la flattered kan. Rasanya la.
But somehow something strikes me at that time. I was thinking, "wow it felt really good doh kalau kena puji macam tu". As a researcher, we make experiments based on theory and other research but at the same time, we are making something that people have not done before. So, basically kita tak tahu apa outcome dia. Jadi atau tidak? So, bila orang appreciate/acknowledge the effort we put on, gila tak bangga?
Well, my point is, in a conversation, satu pujian or praise tadi bagi effect yang sangat mendalam kepada si penerima. Basically, the local man tu dah make someone's day! Inspired by him, I thought maybe I can be like him. I mean, being aware of someone's good work.
Apa yang buat aku terasa nak tulis ni, aku anggap it is a reminder to my dear self that "It is okay to point out the good things you see in others. You will never know, maybe that conversation will brighten up their gloomy day."
Spread the positivity!!
p/s: excuse my grammatical error yang bersepah tu. hehe
