Gideon Satria as a public speaker enthusiastically explained, “Know yourself, start with uniqueness, passion, and weaknesses that we have! After getting to know yourself, set up your goals! Well of course it’s a must to set the goals that we need to achieve. This is meant to help us set a clear vision, each journey, whatever the journey is, there must be goals right? That is why it is important to identify early on so that the process we go through be directed well. After doing the two main points above what we must do is innovation, consistency, and relevancy. Everything that dreams of development from time to time of course needs innovation consistent and relevant with the condition and reality present, and with that everything will run well, according to what is expected.”
