G.E.R.A.K - membantu membuat keputusan

Allow me to explain this concept of mine in Malay ;)

G.E.R.A.K. adalah satu petua ringkas untuk membantu proses membuat keputusan. Ia boleh dipraktikkan selaras dengan '6 thinking hats' dan lain-lain konsep.
Akronim ini membawa maksud:

1) G: Guna
Gunakan segala sumber yang ada. Sumber utama adalah sumber manusia, iaitu dari segi kepakaran, ide, pengetahuan, pengalaman dan lain-lain. Alat-alat bantuan (tools) juga merupakan sumber yang perlu dan boleh digunakan.

2) E: Elemen
Senaraikan segala elemen yang berkaitan dengan isu yang dihadapi. Ini dapat membantu minda untuk merungkaikan isu yang dihadapi dengan lebih mudah. Gunakan 'mind map' untuk menyenaraikan segala elemen-elemen yang berkaitan.

3) R: Rujuk
Rujuk segala maklumat yang berkaitan dengan isu yang dihadapi. Sumber rujukan terdiri daripada pengalaman silam (first hand encounter), pengalaman pihak ketiga (case study, etc), konsep-konsep, teori-teori berkaitan serta trend-trend terkini. Sekiranya masa mengizinkan, luangkan masa selama mungkin untuk mendapatkan rujukan dari pelbagai sudut pandangan dan sumber.

4) A: Analisa
Analisa semua maklumat dan data yang telah dikumpul melalui langkah-langkah yang telah disebutkan tadi. Kategorikan mengikut kesesuaian. Sebagai contoh, boleh gunakan kategori asas 'Manusia', 'Mesin', 'Masa', 'Bahan', 'Wang', ataupun dari 'Ishikawa diagram' - Man, Method, Material & Environment. Bagi setiap kategori, senaraikan pro dan kontranya.

5) K: Kesimpulan
Dari analisa yang dilakukan, buat kesimpulan berdasarkan fakta yang nyata (iaitu pro dan kontra). Ingat, ketelusan dalam membuat kesimpulan adalah sangat penting bagi mendapatkan jalan penyelesaian yang terbaik dan tidak dipengaruhi kepentingan mana-mana unsur luar.

What gives...

I'm tired.. emotionally tired..
The 'challanges' that I face are draining me emotionally..
And being an emotionally driven person, it's not easy to balance out..
Having to work with others while having to keep a positive emotional level is also not helping me cope with this..

I like what I do, I'm happy being who I am.. but I don't know.. I just don't get how people can be so .....................

Hmm.. probably I need somebody to hear my complaints for a change..

Dr M: Don’t forsake English and ruin children’s future

PUTRAJAYA: Parents should think about the future of their children when deciding whether to agree or to oppose the Government’s proposal to make a pass in English compulsory for a student to pass the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia, said former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He said, English was a necessary component for students to get good jobs once they leave school or for them to go overseas for further education nowadays.

He said that when commenting on Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s statement that the ministry was mulling the possibility of making English a compulsory subject for passing SPM.

He said if parents continued to reject the importance of the English language in their children’s education, then the future of the country would be at stake.

He also slammed those who oppose the move saying that these people were less concerned about education than politics.

“It is more like politics than education. They are not interested in education or acquiring knowledge. All they want to see is how many votes they can win. So I am afraid the country will go to the dogs,” he told reporters after being conferred a honorary Doctorate of Humanity by the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology yesterday.

Asked about the possibility that the policy on the teaching of Mathematics and Science in English would be scrapped Dr Mahathir said: “I feel very sorry. In future, all Malays and Malaysians will be stupid.

Earlier, he received the honorary doctorate from university president Professor Emeritus Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing.
