Have a Meaningful Hari Malaysia
STAY MEASURED TO MOVE FORWARD
“BERPADA-PADA” - Don’t overdo it. Don’t underdo it. Do it just right.
We are living in an era of extremes where sensationalism dominates. To get attention, many go overboard. Our young risk their lives to take selfies and videos at the edge of tall buildings and sadly, many have lost their lives.
Our political actors pick the worst examples from their opponents and promote them as mainstream – to paint the worst picture possible about the other. They also go to extremes to point out our differences; things that separate us. Not things that can bring us together – our similarities and shared values.
In the corporate world, we must be watchful too. We must be measured in dealing with our multigenerational challenges instead of falling into rigid stereotyping – comparing and being condescending.
It takes wisdom to be measured. Being measured is a choice and a respoinsibility. We must be measured in our thoughts and actions and when the foolish go extremes, we remain steadfast and not react in similar fashion but instead offer peace.
Being measured is a sign of a beautiful Malaysian.
In politics, we use the Rukun Negara and Perlembagaan Persekutuan as our compass – both are measured documents prepared by measured leaders, our forefathers. In dealing with multigenerational challenges we practice the 6Cs – communicate, compromise, complement, collaborate, compassion, and commitment. We are clear that ultimately our business and corporate goals are to serve customers, not our generational desires.
To be measured, our young must remember who they are as a person; their character and contributions speak louder than the photos and videos they post on social media.
Let us STAY MEASURED TO MOVE FORWARD - Don’t overdo it. Don’t underdo it. Do it just right.
Let us add value,
Have A Meaningful Hari Malaysia.
