Shooting Games

Imagine — Focus — Action. Those key behaviours are written — firm & clear — on the wall of the shooting arena. This morning we learn our prominent practices to be the winner here. The instructions are clear: set your imagination as a winner, put focus on your target, and once you’re there … with no doubt …. with confidence & only confidence to your commitment & competence …. action! Timely! No doubt!

And the winner this morning is yours truly. Thank you, everybody.

 

BPPT Buckber

BPPT invited Engineering Professional Organisations in a short iftar session today. The IEEE Indonesia Section was represented by some volunteers (incl Dr Hugeng, Dr Wahidin, Amanda, and yours truly), since the Excom members were too busy.

Surely here I met some old connections, happily. I met Prof Ashwin, Dr Lubis, Prof Suhono, etc.

Unfortunately, this was only a short session — ended just before Isya & Tarawih.
