Khorshed Alom Khokon- Go Above & Beyond!

Khorshed Alom Khokon

Someone once said, "passion breeds insomnia", of which I am a patient. My passion for doing something meaningful and long-lasting exhausts me as does my hyper-awake brain. I strive for driving positive changes wherever I go. I value "impact" over success. And diversity, innovation, community experiences and long-lasting impact are my main concerns while doing something. Being an empathetic, intuitive and introverted person made me stronger in many ways while putting me in a struggle with my inborn inclinations to calmness, idealism, and perfectionism in a world full of hastiness, insensitivity, indiscretion, and shallowness.

As a person with inherent sensibility, I naturally care for things much more than many people around me do. Even though our old cultures are not quite comfortable with "sensitivity", but I discovered its amazing effects on me. I can say, my sensitivity is my super power, which I am gifted with. From very young age, I am a dot connector, a problem solver with an innate drive to create solutions and to make things happen, in which my introverted intuition made me quite competent, successful and confident. I am open-minded and accepting, willing to consider competing ideas as long as I do not contradict my inner principles. I can easily get along with most other types of people for my inherent capacity for sincerely listening to and understanding other people. The most vital point on my capacity for leadership is that I am both one of the most flexible and one of the most intransigent persons you will ever meet in your life. My actions and reactions come from both the sensible heart & the rational brain with equal adeptness, under different circumstances. Some of which I gained by nature and some of which I gained by practice. I think here lies the biggest power of highly sensitive people, as they can switch in on any position of the behavior spectrum human being live & act within. So the sensitive nature, what some people see as their weakness, made me stronger in many ways.

I tend to think eight sides of a thing and how people and events are connected, which helps me use my creativity to resolve not only technical challenges but also human ones. Combining a vivid imagination with a strong sense of compassion, I love to create sustainable and peaceful solutions for different kinds of challenges I come across every day. I usually act when nobody does or when none is left in a situation. I prefer to observe well first and come later or at the time when I am badly needed for something and when my involvement could make meaningful differences in a situation. Although my works and roles put me in the limelight sometimes, but extreme attention really makes me uncomfortable in a situation. My extreme reluctance to unhealthy competition and my inherent love for peace & harmony made me a distinctively quiet & tolerant person and put me in a place of a peacemaker or a mediator in other people's conflicts, which I still carry out. I inherited boldness, integrity, compassion, sapience and a sense of self-respect from my family which taught me the value of purpose, simplicity, kinship, and happiness over money & stuff in life.

To me, the universe is a complex system and we are a part of that system. All the parts are interconnected & interdependent, so every single part of the system may not rule the system but could influence the system with their given capacity. And with time, the world is getting more complicated and finding "Sustainable" solutions to present global crises is becoming more difficult. So, in my communications and works, I highly emphasize the concept "sustainability", as creating a one-dimensional solution is not difficult while creating a solution which can calm down multi-factors & stakeholders involved with a problem has been being considered as one of the most critical challenges in the present world. And I put elevated importance on both the diverse skill-sets and the multidisciplinary learning of a person for leading changes wherever necessary in this era. For that purposes, I prefer the human-centered design, model thinking, social entrepreneurship, circular economy, diverse knowledge & experiences gathering, and sustainable leadership concepts to a notable extent, and try to incorporate them in my works and daily life.

For the outside world, I may seem quiet and closed off, but deep inside, I possess a Wonderland not even Alice could survive in.
