Learning is one of the critical activities in human life. Human learned with many ways. One of the important learning methods is by discussion. Through discussion we can share our knowledge, our views/opinion, and our experiences. Just like a fire that used to burn the garbage or illuminate the darkness can be created by rubbing dry sticks, the discussion between two or more persons will provide us insights and improve our understanding on any subject that we discuss, or enlighten us. It make sense that this method has been used since eons.
One of the interesting discussion that I would like to share with you that I have done with my colleagues was talking about the important things in our life. In that discussion, we were agree that there are at least three important things in our life, that can be gained by answering three questions:
What is the most important time in our life?, the present time, the now, that’s the time that we only have. Because, past time cannot be re-winded, and future time is still a mystery, now body knows what will be happened in the future.
Who is the most important person in our life?, the person in front of us right now. The other person, may be we will meet them or not in the future, we don’t know. Because future is still mystery, no body knows what will be happened next time.
What is the most important job in our life?, to please the person in front of us right now. The other jobs in the future, we don’t know, whether we still can do it or not because future time is mystery. So, whenever we face our mother, please her, we face our father please him. Whenever we face our spouse/sister/brother, please him/her, whenever we face our kids, please them. Similarly we need to please our superior or subordinate, co-workers, friends, and others.
