I'm writing this, shortly after having a chat with an inspiring one. I call him Pak Sid. Yea, he is the most humble CEO i have ever known. Glad to know him. Both of us often talked together. In the car when we currently in a long, long, journey from Depok to Jakarta, in the office, in the taxi, but still, more often via whatsapp.
"If YOU have a Dream, and it's your big deal, I know the path is not easy. Many people will call you crazy , will tell you : ‘you will fail!’, and your idea is a dumb. It might be the case, they could be right, but they could be wrong, only you know. If you believe it, just do it. If you fail, so what? Just try again, and learn from your mistakes, it’s the only way to learn. You might succeed at your first time or your 7th time, or your xx time, who knows. The main thing is you believe, you can do it. Just keep improving and learning, and don’t make the same mistakes. Again, if you believe, just do it."
Then i asked him, what makes you happy the most?
"I love to build things, the most satisfaction is building something that people use and love. As an engineer you learn the art of creating and when you see people use your creation, its the best feeling, there is also so much to learn and i love the learning process , its exciting and everyday always has new challenge."
So many things we have talked. He told me about his big vision, about what we gonna do with our projects. He did and will do everything with all his heart.
Thank you, Pak Sid.
