MBA ITB Business Review Vol. 3 No. 4 2009

 

Candle Light:

 

It is time to act not to talk!

Pada kejuaran sepak bola Piala Eropa tahun 2008 yang lalu, terdapat sebuah fenomena menarik bahwa kesebalasan Belanda yang sangat superior dengan mengalahkan Italia dan Perancis di babak penyisihan ternyata justru takluk di babak knock out oleh kesebelasan Rusia yang tidak diperhitungkan sebelumnya. Para analisis sepak bola percaya bahwa hal ini karena faktor tangan dingin pelatih Guus Hidink yang menangani Rusia saat itu, yang berkebangsaan Belanda, yang lebih senior dari Marco van Basten, pelatih Belanda, yang justru pernah dilatih Guus Hidink. Kalah strategi dan kalah pengalaman. Namun Johan Cruyff, sang Maestro dari Belanda memiliki pendapat berbeda. Hal ini tidak ada kaitannya dengan strategi dan senioritas. Tidak selalu strategi hebat menunjukkan hasil yang hebat, karena strategi tetap membutuhkan aktor pelaksana di lapangan. Senioritas, biasanya hanya menang di angan-angan sang senior itu sendiri karena sudah terlalu banyak bukti bahwa agent of change di banyak bidang justru adalah orang-orang muda. Yang menjadi faktor penentu kemenangan Rusia, menurut sang Maestro, adalah kegembiraan hati. Pemain Rusia bermain dengan hati gembira seperti anak-anak yang sedang mengalami eforia bermain bola, sedangkan pemain Belanda bermain seperti pekerja kantoran yang hanya menjalankan job description sambil menunggu gajian awal bulan.

                Ilustrasi di atas ada baiknya kita lengkapi dengan apa yang diungkapkan oleh Tiger Wood, seorang pegolf andal: Doing what you love and get paid doing it! Sungguh menyenangkan jika kita semua dapat memaknai ungkapan itu dalam kehidupan dan rutinitas kerja sehari-hari. Karena jika tidak, organisai tempat kita berada akan mengalami fatique, kelelahan luar biasa dan tidak akan beranjak kemana-mana. Kata kuncinya adalah action with happiness!  Ya, action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action (Benyamin Disraeli).

Agar semakin menghayati pentingnya action dibandingkan dengan terlalu banyaknya meeting, silang pendapat, adu argumentasi, perang konsep dan sebagainya yang biasanya menjangkiti berbagai organisasi sehingga timbul akronim nakal semisal ASTRA – Asal Senggang Terus Rapat, berikut saya kutipkan berbagai wisdom dari para pakar.

Alfred North Whitehead: We cannot think first and act afterward. From the moment of birth we are immersed in action, and can only fitfully guide it by taking thought.

Margaret Thatcher: If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.

Danilo Dolci: It’s important to know that words don’t move mountains. Work, exacting work moves mountains.

Edmund Burke: All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.

Elbert Hubbard: To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

Eleanor Roosevelt: You must do the things you think you cannot do.

Georges Bernanos: A thought which does not result in an action is nothing much,and an action which does not proceed from a thought is nothing at all.

Goethe: Knowing is not enough; we must apply!

John Wesley: Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.

Kahlil Gibran: A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.

Laurence J. Peter: There are two kinds of failures: those who thought and never did, and those who did and never thought.

Leo Tolstoy: Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

Lin Yutang: Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.

Lloyd Jones: Those who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try nothing and succeed.

Mark Twain: There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.

Moliere: It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do.

Noam Chomsky: The most effective way to restrict democracy is to transfer decision-making from the public arena to unaccountable institutions: kings and princes, priestly castes, military juntas, party dictatorships, or modern corporations.

Pearl S. Buck: The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible — and achieve it, generation after generation.

Ralph Waldo Emerson: Good thoughts are no better than good dreams, unless they be executed.

Robert Frost: The world is filled with willing people; some willing to work, the rest willing to let them.

Thomas Alva Edison: Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
