What is the most important issue facing your community or the world today? What leadership skills are necessary to address this issue?

When I enrolled my first year in campus, I was welcomed with a newcomers’ orientation that told me about youngsters’ roles as the guardian of value, agent of change, and iron stock. In a nation, for example, students are middle class that go between civil and government, where we have an important role to develop a good governance system.
It is a big thing that most of people in my community do not put much concern in young people development. Our nation’s multidimensional crisis could be ended if we just can develop our next generation well, by giving them a proper and value-based education. The problem is nowadays young people not longer a passionate community who fight for their idealism. We were grown up with pessimistic and tech-instant paradigm. We started to think and do things instantly and then trapped in pop culture, individualism, lack of manner and culture instead of character development. Only few people who still have values and concern about their environment. So, how can a nation grow well when their young people still stand for their own self-present-happiness-thing? Young people no longer have ideal goal of their life or their nation. They have no a dream to achieve either passion to solve problems.
This is why we need leaders that bring us positivity and hope. Leaders with great integrity to guard values, create change, and develop iron stock. Leaders who can act and responsible, not just sit and talk. We do not need any superman; instead we build a superTEAM to build a better nation.

    jadi inget 5 tahun lalu…
    saat untuk pertama kalinya gw kenal elo Shan,,,

    dan sekarang… saat gw liat elo yang sekarang…
    heu…
    just like what we’re (gw & ei) imagining, even a lot a lot a lot a lot more…

  2. What is the most important issue facing your community or the world today?
    i think it’s the global economic crisis and … yeah global warming WARNING!

  3. DREAM! is the way out i guess.. not all of our Indonesian young peoples have dream,,
    i guess, it is the reason why they don’t fight for their life also for their idealism..

  4. ah sha, gw selalu menemui kesulitan saat punya ide dan ingin difasilitasi, apapun itu. makanya contohnya dalam dunia musik, proyek solo gw selalu bisa memuaskan gw, walau terkadang gw jatuh gw harus bangun sendiri dan meludahi lutut yang berdarah. sepertinya kemampuan komunikasi gw kurang.
    eh say, link-kan saya dunk di blog mu, lu ada lho di link blog gw, blogwalking lah ke tempat gw, ada banyak yang permen, susu, gulali, dan yang manis2 disana, ada juga yang agak pahit tp enak kaya kerupuk melinjo,hehehehe.

  5. tumben pake bahasa inggris heuheu..
    Hmm,, deskripsi singkat dan tepat mengenai keadaan sekaranga.

    Inget konsep 1 anak kuliah (yaa ITB lah atau lain-lain) setelah lulus harus minimal bisa mempekerjakan 10 orang (terserah mau dari kalangan apapun, lebih bagus klu yang kurang mampu)

    Tapi sayangnya KITA gak dibekali kemampuan entrepreneurship, (kcuali TI,SBM, plano sih masih dapet dikit-dikit).. padahal liat negara2lain, hampir semua jurusan dapet alokasi SKS yg cukup lumayan untuk entrepreneurship.

    Jd kepikiran kalau aja bisa disisipkan 3 SKS untuk kuliah ttg entrepreneurship wajib (seperti agama/PPKN) buat tiap jurusan, kyny lumayan buat jadi modal mahasiswa di hidupnya nanti.

    Akan sa ngat membantu mengurangi pengangguran,, pasti,,

    ah,, if only,,

  6. oiya,,, comment gw yg ini emang ga tlalu nyambung ma tulisan shana yg ini, to cukup nyambung buat program GKN kita.

    mungkin tulisan di blog gw justru lebih nyambung ama ini, yaa ga jauh beda intinya, cuma bahasanya aja beda haha

  7. wiki…hehehehe..
    maafkan,
    iya nih, artikel ini gw tulis udah lama, untuk application gt,,

    but, nevertheless,
    bangsa kita lg punya mimpi besar…let’s do it kawan!

  8. in my opinion, a good leader nowadays has to be able to utilize even the most pragmatic person.

    Take Red China for example. Their youth nowadays are mostly apolitical, but economically successful. Their opinion is that they contribute to the motherland by working in their respective field and generate huge amount of money to move the country’s economical wheel.

    Some of these people maybe don’t even care what happens on the countryside. It’s pretty funny, but pragmatically they’re right in a sense. Rather than screaming from your guts and do nothing in a protest, just go to your office, lead your men and get those money bags.

    These challenges, my friend, are the ones the New Leader of the Century has to answer.

    A quotation from some forum :
    “In the various activities that i have planned, I have found that if you really want something to happen you have to do it yourself. You can’t expect other people to share your interest in it. Thus they don’t do what they are supposed to until either the last minute, or you supervise them the entire time. When the activity goes down the tube they blame other people who to cover their tail. That has been my experience.”
