I've been reading a few novels these recent days, a habit that never failed to entertain me (I mean besides watching movies and drama series of course). Nowadays, I realized these novels provided me a lot of optimism and courage to go through life but not the knowledge about life itself. I tried reading a few educational and even motivational books but that doesn't really excites me as novels did.
Somebody once said to me 'I tau you suka membaca tapi tak guna kalau asyik baca novel cinta and life jer. You should read other educational books that will provide you the benefits in your working field...blablabla..." And the comment continued for almost an hour.
I admit what he said is true. I love reading, but I read only novels and a few biographies. I don't really read books on economics or banking that will definitely help me in my job and somehow, that has influenced me in the way of writing my report to the boss. He will always complain, "You write good English but not economics English." - mind you, he said the same things to my other colleagues too. Okay, what he said was true. I'm not from economics background, and my only source of knowledge in economics right now is from the daily newspapers and a few analysts reports, which for me, uses very simple English. I tried to do the same thing, changing the terms and even shorten the sentences to make it sounds better. But, I'll get the same comment everytime I submitted them to him. He even suggested I watch CNBC and BBC in Astro to improve my way of writing and vocabulary.
I did what I have to do and I tried to improve things and the way I did it, but well, human satisfaction is really hard to fulfill, so like Sidek said, 'you should pray hard to God then'. Well, I guess I should now right?
