A Past Advice from Dad

When I was a kid, my Dad used to say this line times and again.

Dilihat, dipikir. Didenger, dipikir.

The rough translation is “Observe it, think about it. Listen to it, think about it.”
I did not fully understand what he was trying to tell me.
After all, most of the time the school required me to memorize the lesson, not so much to think about it for myself.
Really, such is not an ideal school curriculum.
Now that I am in a working world, I find that I can’t simply memorize stuff.
Many times, my boss expects certain independence and creativity from me.
Hence, I should think things through, can’t just rely on books.

Dilihat, dipikir. Didenger, dipikir.

Thank God for such a wise advice from my Dad!
I shall implement it always.
