Tahun baru bermakna kebaruan, resolusi hidup baru, belajar hal yang baru, menemukan kembali hal “lama” menjadi baru.

Tentunya kebaruan bisa pula menimbulkan sedikit ketakutan akan timbulnya ketidakpastian baru.

Therefore, allow me to share a nice story that I read this morning:

After Observing O Sensei, the founder of Aikido, sparring with an accomplished fighter, a young student said to the master: “You never lose your balance, what is your secret?”
“You are Wrong”, O Sensei Replied, “I am constantly losing my balance. My skill lies in my ability to regain it“.

Dengan terus membarukan pengetahuan kita, maka kita akan memiliki kemampuan untuk cepat untuk beradaptasi.

Happy New Year 2012

May we keep on learning by trying new things, even finding new “old” things.
