Wow, two posts in less than 24 hours, couldn't believe myself, as usual , I am still slacking and delaying my tasks and surfing the net. (kinda became my habit this year, I know its bad).( if you don't see why I wrote in less than 24 hours, read the ending first).
Since form 4, I somehow understands what elder people say, that the society is complicated and very harsh. Before that, I somehow just think that going out to the society is just working and earning money, and it turned out that I was wrong, very wrong, very very wrong.
In form 4, you get to be elected as committee or a club, society or uniform body. Like always, I get to be elected to hold some high positions, which I am kinda worried because I am very busy and unorganized, as you know( if you read my previous post, I am kinda in a tornado-mode).
Like my parents always say, there are many kinds of people in the society,Demons, Ignorant, Foolish-er, Make you say WTF- er, and many more. Of course, they will also be people who are Good Samaritans and helps you when you have troubles. However, people who can do work are getting lesser and lesser.
As a leader, you must plan, organize, lead and do whatever it takes to keep your organization going. Of course, this is not a one man show, a good leader must work with good armies and fight with powerful weapons. Problems start when you don't have good armies and powerful weapons, how are you going to fight?
What I went through myself this year is, that the younger generations these days are not thinking maturely and acting like they really know a lot. During club and society meetings, I can see that they are trying their best to look professional, so what? What pisses me off is, they tend to give empty ideas and love beating around the bush. For example, it is time to contribute some ideas for making an event successful and special. Then these people will be like giving ideas such as: we must do well, we must do better than last year, we should not remake the mistake like last year.
Do you think those are ideas? Do the ideas even help?
Just imagine having this kind of ideas throughout the whole meeting, I wonder whether there will be an even to be held or not.
Another kind of people that really irritates me is, there are these leaders in the society that I really doubt have what it takes to be a leader. They just love to mess up everything. For example, I am a treasurer (treasurer's job is always related to money ,right?Of course you have to agree, if not I chop your head off! Just kidding........ kinda.)I was in this meeting for an event, and I nearly go off like a nuclear bomb. It was beyond my expectations, asking a treasurer to decorate the notice board and do stuffs like crafts. Are you also feeling the WTFness? I was already in bad mood before the meeting started, the chairman claimed that he or she had 'informED' every committee member to attend the meeting, but turned out it was just 4 of us, out of like a million members! And not just nobody turned up, the chairman was also in another meeting for a camp at the same venue. So, we were like waiting for an hour like idiots doing nothing till she finally came over to our table when I strutted over to their table and asked him or her to come over. He or she informed us to arrive at 2pm, but the meeting somehow started at 3pm. How can a leader can be so unpunctual?
One more thing, I also hate those people who assume that people can accept what his or her's interest. I am one of the editors for a magazine in my school and I am in-charge of computer editing and design. As a loyal reader to many magazines such as reader's digest, Calibre, Expat, August, National Geographic and whatever else, I know what a magazine should have or include in its spread. There was this geek who loves sci- fi and nerdy things such as those black hole, bermuda triangle, nobel prize article...blah. He assumes that what he likes will also be the interest of other people. Let me make it simple, he just puts inappropriate contents in an inappropriate magazine, Just like talking about fashion in Discovery Channel magazine, you get my idea right?
There are too much to be hated in this world, I just cant finish them just in one blog post.
A word from Jason,
Know your capabilities, don't be an empty shell.A no brainer leader will only ruin the day.
P/S this post is supposed to be posted the next day I posted "Problems, Problems Everywhere" but somehow delayed.
