SERVANT Alaf Baru

Orang sering target untuk kerja dengan kerajaan. Katanya, banyak kelebihan dan saya sendiri tak pasti apakah kelebihannya. Jadi Vice Chancelor, dapat pakai Perdana. Well, to me the there will only be satisfaction if the Perdana is fully yours. 

Hairan kenapa orang Melayu khususnya nampak kerja kerajaan sebagai satu-satunya peluang untuk menyara hidup. Kalau dalam bahasa Inggeris, kakitangan kerajaan ialah government servant. Dan saya memang rasakan benda ni benar. Bagi yang memikul tanggungjawab berat khususnya, diri mereka seperti dicipta hanya untuk memenuhi keperluan lain. Sehingga masa dengan keluarga sendiri sangat sedikit. Walau bagaimanapun, ramai orang masih nak mengejar untuk memikul tanggungjawab tersebut. Ataupun mungkin sebenarnya mengejar untuk mendapatkan jawatan tersebut sebagai tiket mendapat layanan istimewa. *mod tak faham dengan dunia*

I can't deny the fact that my dad is a government servant, and he's hoping to retire as soon as he achieve his goal. He said it's better to gain income in business, to be specific -in AVAIL. He said he took 25 years to gain a 5-figure income. 12 years schooling + 5 years undergraduate + 2 years master degree + 3 years & 8 months of PhD and that does not include years of working experience. Different with AVAIL, and my mother had been in AVAIL for 5 years and gaining a much-much bigger income than my dad. Infact, to get  5-figure in AVAIL, you can just take 2 years. And to get 4-figure is just so easy. So, AVAIL is some how a shortcut. Plus the satisfaction you get when you help people with their health. 

My parents never force me with my future. They used to. When I was a school kid. But, now everything is all up to me. My classmates generally aims to be servants but I prefer to be the minority. Minority may looks abnormal because it is different with the majority. But, being different is not wrong. Frankly, those who succeed in life, are those who are different. For example, Thomas Edison. His teacher gave up teaching him as he always ask weird questions and his mother was the one who taught him. And look at what he become. 

To those working in govenment sectors, who regularly complains due to tones of work. You may need to think again. It is YOU that willing to be servants. So, why be a SERVANT when you HAVE CHOICE? Or maybe you have a personal goal to achieve.
