A Space of My Own 我的空间

To Push Hard and Aim High

Posted on: February 8, 2010

We’re doing a chapter on Motivation this week, and I read in my MNO
text book that usually employees perform better if they are giving a
very specific goal to start with, and not just the generalized one of
‘doing your best’.

Some people say setting a goal is like
putting a limit round your what you can achieve. But in my case, I
guess I was falling back way too hard on my generalized goal on ‘doing
my best’, and I only did my best I comfortably could, taking no
initiatives to push my self further, and harder, and to believe I could
do better.

I used to say that Mummy has unrealistically high
goals and hopes for me to do well in NUS. But now I look back, I’d say,
maybe, that was exactly what I needed.

No one is really pushing
me on now, so it’s up to me to exert more force and spirit unto myself.
I don’t say I’m going to graduate with a nice degree, but at least, I’d
like my last few semesters in NUS to be fulfilling ones, in terms of
academic goals.

I was chatting with Kasun the other day, and I
felt ashamed of myself for being content with learning so little, while
he even wants to use every bit of his summer holidays to get the most
he could out of school life.

I have been spiritually complacent
as well, being satisfied at where I am, and as Pastor Mike put it
today, sitting at the sidelines and watching the race go by. It’s time
to jump back into action. Indeed.

And I need every ounce of daily grace and mercy for that.
