Connect the Dots

Connecting the Dots [EF#5]

Connect the Dots

Some said our life is just like connecting the dots. Whether we want it or not, we need to get moving from one point to another. And we know that everyone has their own style of defining those movements. By any means, such as direct jump to the higher level of competency, parallelly as an opportunities taker, or by using any positive step by step enhancements to get a better foothold, gradually.

The acts itself may vary. It depends on most of our living conditions and our educational backgrounds. Moreover, it may differ based on experience and mental intelligence of its stakeholder. From here on, the social factors automatically will follow then. We meet people. We communicate with them. And then we are connecting our dots, each other.

Do the best

From my point of view, we ourselves can not predict our own future. Not even one second ahead. So then, it is a kind of useless when we try to look forward about our dots. It is not possible. We may put some plans on the table. We may create some priority list. It is OK, it shall seem like that. But the main important thing is we need to do the best of anything we can do. Because we never know what the best scenario that suits us better. That is truly the art.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.” — Steve Jobs


If I may say, one of the big dots I have ever met recently is BEC (Blog English Club). To be honest, I have met some great people here. As far as I know, they have amazing visions. They share valuable viewpoint to others without hesitation. And they have a strong desire to move forward. Sometimes, I feel envy with any of them. But, here we are, thanks to this BEC group admins and mentors so I can learn a lot about anything valuable, especially on English writing matters. With 100 people and more joining this group, I think it is a fine and rare opportunity to make our dots connected. So, bravo to all of you. Hope we can match our dots here.


This post is a submission for BEC’s English Friday, 5th topic: What is BEC to You?. If you want to know more, please join us! 😀

  1. That picture reminds me of star network topology where each network host is connected to a central hub 🙂 Great post, Mas Andik! Saya udah komen aja padahal belum bikin tulisan, haha *kabur


  2. It seems like a success try in relating what you’re thinking with BEC’s theme for this week. Really, I didn’t realize that in here are two different idea that you combine to be one post. Nice post 🙂


  3. Creative bloggers produce great pieces. I always enjoy your point of view on things Andik and you write beautifully!!

    – If I may say, one of the big dots I have ever met recently is BEC (maybe Found is a more appropriate word? – I found recently)
    – They share valuable viewpoint to others without hesitation. And they have a strong desire to move forward. (these two can be combined).
    – Sometimes, I feel envy with any of them –> sometimes I envy them (Envy is a feeling already).
    – But, here we are, thanks to this BEC group admins and mentors so I can learn a lot about valuable THINGS/IDEAS/CONCEPTS, especially on English writing matters.
    – Hope we can match our dots here –> Hope we can join our dots. (dots are not matched).

    Bravo BEC!!



  4. I like your writing style, Mas Andik. You always have something to relate with EF challenge topics.
    I hope BEC will be a network that consists of our dots 🙂


  5. A very good and encouraging post. But I do wonder whose dots will I be connecting to? :eh
    I also recognized that you changed your theme, didn’t you?
    I kinda like this theme better because it makes the posts easier to read (it’s just an opinion, though…)


  6. At first I was confused what is this post about. Then, I was intrigued to read all through. Then I am AMAZED. Argh, you have always amazed me Mas with your post. Connecting dots. And Steve Jobs? So “it man”.

  7. Again, a unique point of view 😊 Btw, my daughter loves to connect the dots on her book, in the end she’ll create either a picture or animal or a fruit 😁 hihi.. Thank you, Mas Andik for putting some effort as one of the admins 😊


    1. Yes, that is one of actual terms of connecting the dots. So we can create any shapes (line, pattern, or whatever it is called) to connect each dots and it will become a “big picture” of our ideals. Anaknya pinter kyknya ya… Hehe… you’re welcome mb Andin. Tetap semangat yak 😀


  8. Someehow I feel that I’m intimidated by your post Mbah. You write something deep with some weight in it. I envy you for your experience I think. Hahahaha.


  9. Nah yang ini tulisannya selalu memukau. Saya selalu suka ga tulisan mas Andik. Harus belajar banyak niyh cara membuat tulisan yang menarik dari mas Andik…
