So apparently I just realized I'm the kind of person who puts a high value on the word of "Progress". (Yes I know, it's an obvious contrary compared to the way I manage this personal website, I'm currently doing my best to handle it differently)
As the end of this year quickly approaching, at the very same time, me and my husband just made a bold decision to finally step into our long-delayed-dream to build a startup and went to become a full-time entrepreneur. (We're setting up a branding consultant company, called ATAU, in case you would like to know or maybe need our service)
I welcomed this early stage of entrepreneurship by struggling with this "one big question" going on in my head, "What progress have you made so far?". Then there was this moment where I just couldn't answer that intriguing question as if I found myself not making any progress. Suddenly it seems I just gave a wide-open door letting anxiety freely to come in an ambush. Pretty tough.
Meanwhile, when I was checking my e-mail, I stumbled on an e-mail from Steven Furtick's (one of my fave preachers) Walking Faith daily devotion, with a title "How to Have Faith That Doesn't Fluctuate". One of them was reminding me to "pray when you feel like complaining", hence, I began to ask Him about that one big question of mine. Later that time, there was this something powerful started to stir up in my heart, saying that progress is all about when you take a step into your life-calling and keep on becoming a better version of yourself day by day. Each one of us has our own life stages, which leads to a different kind of life-progress. Even if you don't see or feel it happening, choose to always believe the best is yet to come. Keep the faith and dream alive.
Therefore, to make this personal website more progressive yet attractive (I did mention before, I'm working on it right?), I decided (and made a promise as well) to consistently create something simple yet thoughtful as a monthly theme. I might also writing it in Bahasa or English.
Getting started this October, I'm gonna talk about "Progress". And in regards to that (plus my best effort to give it something interactive), I asked that "one big question" to some of these cool people who came from different backgrounds. Below are their answers.
