Every profession and position has risks.
Especially with the position of minister of education in the current global pandemic of COVID-19.
Controversy over any policies made undoubtedly creates pros and cons.
Nadiem Makarim admitted that he was often hit by stress and did not sleep a lot during his time as education minister.
The man who was born in Singapore, July 4, 1984, said that his wife, Franka Franklin, was a port where everything was poured out.
Also to his parents, senior lawyers Nono Anwar Makarim and Atika Algadrie.
“I used to confide in an understanding wife.
Without him I don’t know whether I will be able to go through these difficult times, “said Nadiem Makarim, Wednesday (26 August 2020).
But the most effective and consistent way to relieve stress, the former Gojek boss continued, was not confiding in other people but playing with his eldest daughter, Solara and her two other younger siblings.
“That’s my meditation and therapy,” said Nadiem.
When playing with children, according to Nadiem Makarim, two things happen, namely, emotionally they can be more stable and calmer.
The children also reminded themselves who had to do this tough task.
Namely for the future of all Indonesian children.
“That’s what motivates me.
So it doesn’t matter if you get hit, shoot at, that’s a risk of leadership during a crisis, right?
