Pass or Fail 3: How to be the Best Yuppie Ever

Napakapalad ng mga Pinoy GenZ, kasi they have access to a wide selection of resources that will help them succeed in life, at isa na dun ang Pass or Fail Book 3: Paano Maging Best Yuppie Ever  by Ptr. Ronald Molmisa.

Pass or Fail (1)

Filled with practical tips on how to move from the academe to the workplace, the book speaks like a big brother to a younger sibling. Nakakatuwa nga kasi as I was reading the book, I’m reading it with the voice of Ptr. Ronald. It is more than passing on of information – it passes life lessons. Here are my reasons why:

  1. Magsisimula tayo sa pinakamahalagang tanong: ready ka na ba? Sa mga unang chapters pa lang magtatanong ka sa sarili mo kung na-overcome mo na ba ang phase ng pagiging [bulakbol] na estudyante to wear the mantle of an adult filled with responsibilities. In short, from being a a student to #adulting phase. Then may mga tools siya na io-offer for you to better discover yourself, para mas maging clear kung saan ba talaga ang direction na para sayo.img_4848
  2. He will also give you tips on how to increase your chances of landing a job that suits you – kung saan ka maaaring maghahanap ng trabaho, sa paggawa ng impressive na resume o curriculum vitae (I finally learned the difference between the two! Haha!), at kung ano ang mga do’s and don’ts sa job interview. Favorite kong part yung mga common interview questions at kung ano ang maaari mong isagot sa mga tanong na ito. Bakit kasi wala nito nung panahong nag-aapply pa lang ako?
  3. It tackles relationship building and conflict resolution. Hindi lang ang kumita ang mahalaga sa pagiging young professional. Mahalaga rin na marunong kang makisama sa mga officemates mo at sa boss mo, at lalo na sa sarili mo. I love how it stresses out the idea that we work from rest, not work to rest. We cannot afford to compromise our sanity and health for our work. Bahagi ng pagiging best yuppie ever ang pagkakaroon ng healthy perception of rest.
  4. Mae-encourage ka na i-develop mo ang tamang work ethics pagdating sa trabaho. Paano ka magse-save for the future, paano mo ire-represent si Jesus sa workplace mo by your actions and speech, at kung ano ang motivations mo sa paglilingkod. The concept of “ikigai” was introduced, which means “reason for being”. While this “workplace nirvana” is seldom achieved, at least mabibigyan tayo ng encouragement to do our best for the Lord.

As you read the book, it will encourage you to assess yourself and will leave you committing to your purpose. Pakiramdam ko napagalitan nga ako ni Ptr. Ronald, lalo na sa idea na baka naso-shortchange ko na ang employer ko, o baka hindi na aligned sa will ni Lord ang career goals ko. It’s always good to be reminded.

This book is the third installment sa Pass or Fail series ni Ptr. Ronald. Hindi lang siya love and relationship guru, he is indeed a mentor to the youth. Oyeah!
