Lima Tahun Sudah Perjalanan Ini (Hello and Goodbye)

Genaplah kini lima tahun saya meninggalkan kota asalku menuju tanah ini. 29 Oktober 2007. Hari Senin yang sama. Malam bermega yang sama, saat saya menginjak Tanah Jawa.

Banyak cerita telah terjadi, terkatakan, dan ditulis. Andai bapaku masih ada, maka aku sekarang bertanya-tanya, "apa yang selanjutnya akan beliau perkatakan tentangku?"

Dua perusahaan telah menjadi bagian dalam lembaran CV. Banyak orang telah datang dan pergi. Sebagian tetap memilih tinggal menjadi teman, sahabat, saudara. Sebagian lagi - dan jumlahnya lebih besar, memilih untuk pergi, berlalu dan mungkin melupa. Aku hanya akan tetap peduli pada mereka yang berdiam tinggal dalam kehidupanku meski kami tidak lagi bersama dalam satu lingkungan kerja. Tetapi tetap aku akan menyapa pada mereka yang mungkin melupa. Waving hello will not hurt anyone, I believe.

Satu peristiwa baru saja berlalu. Saya sudah mengundurkan diri dari perusahaan tempat saya bekerja selama hampir empat tahun terakhir pada Kamis minggu lalu, officially, untuk melanjutkan karir di perusahaan baru - perusahaan ketiga, pada awal November nanti.

Ada beberapa alasan mengapa saya - yang semula dikenal cinta berat kepada perusahaan itu, untuk kemudian mencari pekerjaan lain, mengundurkan diri dan melanjutkan hidup. Tetapi tidak akan saya ceritakan di sini. Tetapi tetaplah semula, segalanya adalah baik, pun saya sangat bersyukur tentang segala sesuatu yang terjadi selama beberapa tahun terakhir saya melayani di tempat ini.

Tidak terputus ucapan terima kasih saya kepada tim dan teman-teman yang saya tinggalkan di sana. Respon terhadap e-mail farewell Kamis kemarin - baik yang "reply all", japri, ataupun telepon langsung, benar sangat berkesan.

Cheap Ice Cream and Sunset

Hello and good afternoon to you,

I would like to say thanks to all of you for your help and support during my almost-four years here in this environment.

So this is my stop point now, joining you as a team, and my next journey will be started soon.

May all the good things happened in the future for the company and the team, and so is my replacement whom I'm hoping to serve you better and tougher.

Just in case that you see this loner sitting alone in a crowded mall and filled of the network of heavy oxygen, enjoying his cheap ice cream alone, I'd like you to yell at me. I'll treat you ice cream if you want to.

A small thing I'll miss from the environment and office is the sunset I can enjoy on most afternoons. But I'll be thinking about you sometimes somehow. Google me if you're thinking to contact this person.

Thank you, I'm waving goodbye.

Special thanks to Ms. Rxxxxxx, Pak Rxx, Pak Dxxxxxxx, Pak Txx, Mr. Txx, and all local team here.


Ingatlah, berserulah kepadaku kalau kalian melihatku duduk sendirian di mall yang penuh sesak dan menikmati es krim murahku. Akan kutraktir es krim dan kita bisa bercerita.

Well, GOOD things happen. Rumahku di Cileungsi sana sudah bisa ditempati (meski ada beberapa keluhan yang tetap harus kueskalasikan), si abang yang dapat kerjaan dan salary bagus di tempat barunya (mas, kayak yang kubilang di Whatsapp, iman loe luar biaso! Again, bangga gue punya abang kayak loe...)

Sampai jumpa di post berikutnya. Doakan agar saya bisa membantu sangat banyak hal dan memberi sumbangsih lebih di tempat baru.

It's You To Adjust To The System For You Can Survive

"Apply this at work and in life, that it's you to adjust yourself into the system. It's not the system to adjust itself for you. You'll be survivor then."


My life mentor in my early 20s.

A very old advice by my mentor at the first company I worked for, which is still valid till now. I keep spreading these words to the younger people; my previous team members in 2010, my siblings, and some youngsters I met recently.

It's not that we are bond to change ourselves to be accepted by the system, be it at work and other ecosystems. That's you and all qualities in you, you don't have to change it. But it's that we have to manage ourselves to adapt to the established system we're joining into, so some negative impacts which may result later, will not happen to you at the very worst scenario. Indeed, the qualities in you must not be contraproductive to your own life.

And now I wish the newly joint members in my ecosystem could read, understand, and apply this advice in life and especially at work.

Bang, thanks for the simple yet great advice. It has been helping me and others.
