Official PhotoFinally, at 23 Nopember 2005 I graduated from Electrical Engineering Gadjah Mada University. Now I got my name with added S.T. (Sarjana Teknik) suffix, so my name become Wahyu Wijanarko, S.T. Hehe, not too bad. I'm very happy with this predicate. Thanks Jesus for let me take this position. For my parents at Ngentakrejo Village, thanks for ur support.

I'm now looking for master scholarship in Management, or Information Technology. Talked with Mr. Prastowo, head of IT Centre UGM maybe I can apply for 'parent scholarship'. I'm sure thet he just kidding about this, and he gave me some advice and information about scholarship. Till now, I still don't mind to get funding from my parent for my next degree, maybe this thing become last alternative if i really want this degree. Maybe self scholarship? Also Mbak Rika from MPKD UGM talked to me about scholarship in architecture related in AIT Thailand. Hmm, it's nice, and I still find out more information about this opportunity, since i'm very full with work at Jogja. Anyway, thanks Mbak Rika for great advice and help :)

Seven Spiritual laws of Success by Deepak Chopra

ChopraI already read book authored by Deepak Chopra that said about Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.

The meaning of success is the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals by honoring others.

Success is a life filled with appreciation and gratitude. You could say the real meaning of Success is the ability to fulfill your desires effortlessly and with ease. Yet success- all by itself, including the creation of wealth, has been considered by some to be a process that requires hard work, and it is often considered by some to be at the expense of others.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success offers a different perspective on the attainment of success compared to many other works. Chopra's structure follows a section of explanation followed by a summarised step by step guide for us to follow allowing us to put his words easily into practice, if we wish. Chopra guides us through laws such as 'The Law of Pure Potentiality' to 'The Law of Dharma' – or purpose in life. He reflects on the effect of silence and meditation in our lives, the act of giving and practising acceptance and the importance of being aware of choices - to name but a few. He writes of how thinking and our behaviour are always in anticipation of a response and therefore we often live life in fear. He talks of how practising non-judgement can be beneficial in our lives and frequently explains his points vividly through use of simile. This book has been enthusiastically described as a treasury of secrets which can make your dreams come true. Maybe this is an exaggerated viewpoint but one thing is for certain, Chopra has a lot of wisdom and good ideas to offer.

1. The Law of Pure Potentiality
The source of all creation is pure consciousness... pure potentiality seeking expression from the un-manifest to the manifest. When we realize that our true self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in the universe.

2. The Law of Giving
The universe operates through dynamic exchange.... giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.

3. The Law of Cause and Effect
Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind.... what we sow is what we reap. And when we choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of our action is happiness and success.

4. The law of Least Effort
Nature's intelligence functions with effortless ease.... with care-freeness, harmony, and love. When we harness the forces of harmony, joy, and love, we create success and good fortune with effortless ease.

5. The Law of Intention and Desire
Inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment... intention and desire in the field of pure potentiality have infinite power. When we introduce an intention in the fertile ground of pure potentiality, we put this infinite organizing power to work for us.

6. The Law of Detachment
In detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty..... in the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past, from the known, which is the prison of past conditioning. in our willingness to step into the unknown, the field of all possibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.

7. The Law of Purpose in Life
Everyone has a purpose in life... a unique gift or special talent to give to others. When we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.

From Amazon:
In the very long run Mr. Chopra is right; security, of course, is an illusion. Something (illness, death, etc.) sooner or later will make you feel insecure -- but in the meantime a big pile of cash will make you feel more secure and each and every day you will be better able to really enjoy the present as Deepak wants you to.
What I take about this book: Great book, open my mind about how to love and share each other.

What Make a Leader

When think leadership I remember John C Maxwell. His book about leadership is inspiring me in my life. His writings open my minds about leadership.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
I also got noticed how to have great teamwork, it's not about my position in a team but about how to reach the goal together. I learn and learn. This is like a long journey for me. I believe that I should fill this life with something usefull for me and for others. From me:
A leader is person who can make everyone and everything move into the right way

Teens Blog Habits According Survey

According to the survey, 1 of 5 teens who using internet connection have a blog.
Researchers note that the main reason teens are drawn to blogs is a wish to keep in touch with one another.

"Blogging for teens is about staying tuned into their friendship networks, not about politics or people getting in trouble at school, which are two of the main narratives that journalists have covered in recent months," says Amanda Lenhart, a senior researcher at Pew who helped compile the report.
Although my age is over 20, I'm still smell like teen spirits :D
