‘Financial’ Leverage.


nota: entri ini lebih kepada reminder untuk diri sendiri. (apakahh…?) hehh… kadang-kala blogger perlu juga entri yang ditujukan khas untuk dirinya (even other entries were explicitly written as a self-reminder, but still, a specific one is kinda essential I supposed). Kepada yang lain, mari ambil ibrahnya bersama

Financial leverage = small effort ----------> BIG result

Oh, this is not an ‘Introduction to Financial Management' (FIN 420) lecture anyway. Heee… but It’s something related to. Not in the finance, assets, liabilities or number aspects but the leverage thingy. Before we can go in depth about the topic, let’s take a look at this:

…dengarkan hai teman,

dengarkan bersama,

aku menulis bukan kerna nama

kerna sifat kasih pada sesama insan

dan menyatakan kasih sayangku

kita sama, semuanya sama

apa yang ada, hanyalah kehidupan…

Have u ever heard of the verses before? Heee… it’s Ramli Sarip’s Bukan Kerna Nama. I’d like to highlight an important point which is…

aku menulis bukan kerna nama

reason 1: this is not a competition, so, there’s no such a winner neither loser kind of thing, who’ll get the title and name for the writing.

reason 2 : am not a nobel prize winner, thus, my writing is not as even as Picasso’s work. You can judge me all you want, but this is all I’ve really got. (-_-) Y

will you believe me if I say…

kerna sifat kasih pada sesama insan

dan menyatakan kasih sayangku

heee ^^ it’s kinda doubtful if it came from an Arissa ( we can fake it right? ) But seriously, I mean it.

If it ain’t for the love solely, it’s for the responsibility.


Enough rambling and ranting. This is the gist.

“By (the token of) Time (Through Ages). Verily Man is in loss, Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy

(The Time 103: 1-3)

we’re in loss, except if we do righteous deeds, remind others (and ourselves for sure) of Truth, Patience and Constancy, insha Allah

and writing, in one of the ways of doing it. May

me, you, WE

can be benefited from this, ameen.

Hey, where’s the leverage part?


I read an attractive and appealing entry from Sang Pelangi. He said, our writing can possibly place US in Jannah (ameen). And yet, it could also bring US to the hell-fire (nauzubillah).He repeated, again and again, it is US.

Not only me, neither you solely but WE.

So, this is the deal. if our writing is meant for ourselves’ improvement, that’s great. But if we are able to write for ourselves and others, that’s even greater. However, nevertheless, if the writing can benefit US,

(me + you = US)

Wouldn’t it be the greatest part of all? That’s where the leverage notion makes sense.

Small effort -----> a piece of writing

BIG result ------> it benefits US (me + you = US)

Do you follow?

It’s okay if you don’t because this is mine, for me to be remembered and understood :)
