Life is an adventure

Life Is an Adventure: A Guide to the Path of Joy

We often amazed to see how children not even in their fifth years, already managed to operate almost electronic devices at our home. Their eyes sparkle and sort of light up like those lights on Christmas tree. They are eager to explore the new device, by their own. And yes, they are able to master it within minutes compare with most of us, the adult.

However, try to dig your memory a bit. Weren’t you like that when you were much, much younger? Your dad brought home a new video player (yes, children… Ages ago, we use this thing called video and video player) and warned you not to play with it… But guess what? You could not hold yourself and decide to take a look at it… Try to remember what you dad did last night to use this thing… And it turn out, within minutes you do not need your parents anymore to watch the video…

In the adult world, you are now a new employee of this company… Though your senior has given warning about things that you should not, can not, better not do … you do it anyway… You are new to the job, perhaps you forget about their warning… perhaps you just want to know what will happen if you do it anyway…

Being young in our childhood, being a new employee in our adulthood…

Both of the situations are where we have no idea about the consequences of things that we would have done…

Being adult, we know how much is going to cost us if we do not use the electronic device properly. The device probably going to be damaged and can not be used any longer. It means we have to buy a new one (If we desperately need the device) or pay reparation fee to fix it. Being kid, we have no idea about it. All we think is…how to operate this thing by ourselves? We considered that as an adventure…exploring things that we have no knowledge about.

Being a senior in the office make us truly aware of the price to pay if we do the job without proper procedure. Obviously, there will be lost that the company must bear. Then certainly the client is going to be pissed and not satisfied. They sent complain. The complain reached our boss who will give us bad appraisal for our performance. As the final result, we will not going to get a raise.
But being a junior? We probably going to make a face and asked our senior,”So…what is going to happen if we screw up unintentionally?” (make me want to strangle them every time the newbie asked me that question)… The great thing is we as a new person will probably able to find out new strategy to get the job done… the worst thing can happen, we screw up and take the consequences.

We always says that we prefer to know what lay ahead of us… So, we will know what sort of action that should be taken… It turn out, we do thing at the very best when we have no idea what is going to happen in the future… Yeah, sure … is frightening… I am include to the kind of person who prefer to know what is going to happen… Then again, what is the fun in that? We will be scare all the time, and can’t explore the unknown…

Being wise is a must…however let us try not being over cautious on every thing that we do… I know for myself that this is not easy… Hopefully I will find a way to see things from a child’s eyes or new recruit’s point of view…

(psst… I will let you all know when I succeed it)
