Motivation Workshop

Day 1

Not Adam Khoo this year, but another company called the High Achievers Training Consultancy Pte Ltd.

8.00am - 10.15am
Everyone was so enthusiastic about this Motivation Workshop. We started off at AVA room where the seats were already arranged properly for us. First impression...not bad.

Coming up next wasn't what I expected - warm-up activities. We were told to play a couple of teamwork games. Group 10, which is my group, was kinda funny - There's Jeffrey, Josh and SQ! Just couldn't stop laughing. And so game after game we earned points, but they were redundant because at the end of the day nothing is done related to the points.

10.15am - 10.45am
Break time! So I casually took some snapshots.

Have a break. Have a Kit Kat!

Isabelle sure knows how to pose at the right timing.

10-45am - 1.20pm
After the break, we continued with the activities. One such activity called the Entanglement, was pretty fun. My group only have 9 people so it's impossible for us to form a rectangle, thus completing this activity was a real challenge! We were entangled here and there, the closer we are the more difficult for us to untangled ourselves. But then we managed to complete one round.

1.20pm - 2.20pm
Break again. Duration of 1 hour, longest break time ever.

2.20pm - 6.00pm
For the next few hours they began the motivational talk. Honestly, I nearly fell asleep. Coach Barry no doubt is a good speaker, and his self-high attitude wraps the overall workshop perfectly. I understand the message he was sending, but the air-con drowsed me. Near 6pm, we played another game. Everyone had to escape the claws of the coaches by teaming up together and supporting each other. I had a cut in the process.

So the first day ended. Although I brought home huge amount of values, but among the them there wasn't a value called Motivation.

Day 2

8.00am - 10.10am
Start of the day and we're already moving our hands here and there. Big fish, small fish, big bird. Simple warm-up. Not so much activities today because it's finally time for "motivation". I listened while getting drowsier every second. Just when I'm on the verge of "collapsing", Coach Barry gave us a break. What a close shave!

10.10am - 10.45am
Break time. But the duration was too short till I don't find a point going canteen and eat.

10.45am - 1.10pm
It's a motivation-spree until they showed us a video about Jack Neo being interviewed on regarding his career as a director. Even though Jack spoke with a Singlish accent, but I still understand the message behind it.

1.10pm - 2.10pm
Hurray my break! I played PSP in the AVA room which seems to be the first meaningful thing I did today.

2.10pm - 6.00pm
The seats were arranged properly once again. Thank goodness I don't have to pit against the hard floor. Next Coach Barry wanted us to take a test and the result? I'm a right brain and an audio learner. What the hell? I think I fit more in Kinesthetic learner!

This time round I learned something new - strategies in making effective notes by ourselves. This is new, I've never make notes on my own (I always copy from my teachers), thus I paid extra attention to Coach Barry. He also wanted us to set our goals by writing down in a paper. I did set goals in the past, but as the time goes by I've forgotten all about it.

After which we engaged in another activity whereby everyone had to move around Level 4 and observe as much things as they could. I used this time to slack with my friends instead and nearly enter a girl's toilet with Shawn!

And the "motivation" went on. At the end of the workshop, some girls were...crying?! Come on, it isn't that sad!

Honestly I'm not motivated at all and is currently back to my usual self after 2 days of relaxation.

See you (no) soon High Achievers!
