My new year’s resolution in 2013

Tomorrow, we will leave in 2012. Age increases. Hair is reduced. Hope to live longer in this world is decreasing. Measurable results and performance for the year 2012 was quite satisfactory, if viewed from the worldly aspects. Four times invited as a keynote speaker at international seminars in Indonesia and the United States. Twelve scientific publications with the cumulative impact factor are 25. Guiding twenty PhD students and two MSc students. But there are some questions that need to be answered in order to get a reward from Allah SWT and bring benefit to mankind.

Are all of these achievements started with good intentions, not to expect financial rewards, power, or just to show off?

Is all of this will bring benefits to the people?

To be honest, the answer is no.

Based on the above considerations and as noted on the front page of this website, the following is my resolution for next year.

The most important thing in my life is to be a good person. I will try to be a better person in 2013 and follow the following guideline: How to become a good person.
