Dulu Telefon Karat Kini Mulut Karat



Hai Semua. Its has been a time kan? 

Hari ni, saya nak borak panjang pasal game telefon karat ni dan saya akan selitkan kenapa game telefon karat ni boleh lead pada 'the blame game'! Alah, takkan tak tau blame game tu ape kan? tetttt....

Remember that game we all played as kids called ‘telephone’? Or in malay we call this as 'Telefon Karat'.  Here’s how the game looked WHEN WE WERE KIDS :



Telefon Karat (DULU)

How to play the game?
let pick at least 5-10 people. let them queue. 
We gave them message. Example :

Text
Hari Rabu, Abu suka makan masak lemak pucuk paku.
Pucuk Paku dibeli dari kedai bakar. Kedai pak bakar berwarna biru.

Sarah received the text and passed to Ahmad.
Hari Rabu, Abu suka makan masak lemak pucuk paku.
Pucuk Paku dibeli dari kedai bakar. Kedai pak bakar berwarna biru.

Ahmad passed to Acong.
Hari Rabu, Abu makan lemak pucuk paku.
Abu beli dari kedai bakar. Kedai pak bakar biru.

 Acong Passed to Linda
Hari Rabu, Abu akan makan lemak pucuk paku.
Abu beli dari kedai bakar. Kedai pak bakar biru.

Linda Passed to Hakim
 Setiap hari rabu, abu akan makan paku bakar yang biru.

Hakim to Sarah
Hari ini hari rabu, mari makan paku!


Now, you see how message travel? Last time when we were kids, it was fun to play such games. We passed message from one to another. The funny part is, we found out that the message that we received was not exactly the same as the original message. Funny right? How can it be? lemme repeat HOW CAN IT BE

I'll answer the question later. Lets back to the reality.




Well, even though we all grew up and got real jobs doesn’t mean the ‘game’ changed all that much. I believe this happened to most of the organization nowadays. Despite of how advanced you with the modern device, this issue will not be resolved. Eh, it can be, but you need to put so much effort to solve the issue.

Here’s how the game can look in business:

TELEFON KARAT KINI

Nothing much different with the telefon karat game we played when we were kids last time. We still unable to passed the message clearly and correctly and often make mistake and add new unrelated issue to the message.

Now, I'll answer my own question above ; HOW CAN IT BE?

This is what happened when we grow up. We have so much to catch. We have so much information to digest and We have so many thing to grab. 

We are in the 20's. We move faster. We are multitask-er. Its good to be multitask-er, but one must remember. When there is no focus, There is no understanding and it lead to miscommunication

What is require when it involve important message is; you have to write it down, listen carefully, focus of what people is trying to say and you are fully responsible to ensure that you get the information clearly so that you can pass the message exactly as what you get earlier. 

You are playing an important role here as the middle person. If you don't take thing seriously, please do think twice what is the consequences from your unprofessional ethic to others or to the organization itself.

Yes, here we go! Now we can see the relationship between telefon karat game and the blame game. 

YES, when thing goes wrong, you are the one that we should put the blame on. But as person, you simply put the blame to others. 



Because, It is way too easy to blame others and that is why we do it so much in our life. Blame Him, Blame Her, put the Blame to this department, that department. 

But remember this my friend, 

'blame is like a boomerang. Once you throw it at someone, it usually comes back to SMACK you in the face.'




Biar master dulu telefon karat sebelum mulut tu berkarat! aaaahhhh kelasss gitu penutup dia. 

sekian.
