the great wall

23 November, 2010

If we fail to reach the Great Wall we are not men.”

This famous quote of Mao Zedong inspires millions of tourists visiting the Great Wall each year. And on this autumn I was feel fortunate to have a chance visit the Great Wall. Badaling is by far the most popular Great Wall of China site for travelers, mainly because it is close to Beijing (less than two hours away) and is much easier to climb than the other Great Wall sections.

The Badaling section was built around 500 years ago – and was extensively renovated by the present Chinese government over the last several decades. Be mindful that Badaling swarms with tour groups, individual tourists and hawkers – and has become somewhat tacky. This could taint your photographs and memories of an otherwise visually striking Great Wall of China site.

 


clean up days

23 November, 2010

Semakin banyak disposisi yang mampir ke meja kita dan manajemen surat menyurat kita masih first in first out ataupun berdasarkan urgensinya, mau gak mau, semakin kita akan mendapati meja kerja kita berisi dengan kertas-kertas. Dan seringkali kita menyayangkan untuk menyingkirkan semua berkas itu dari meja kita dengan alasan masih berguna ataupun masih diperlukan andaikata dipertanyakan. Clean desk management sudah diberlakukan di level manajemen yang lebih sering menerima tamu, tentu saja akan merepotkan dan mempermalukan diri apabila terlalu banyak tumpukan kertas di mejanya. Lalu bagaimanakah jika clean desk management mulai diterapkan di level worker, yang jelas-jelas bekerja dengan semua kertas dan disposisi dari atasannya? Aniway, happy clean up days!
