王永庆的瘦鹅理论

It's already a fact that the world is IN recession now. I just finished watching Singapore's TV (Channel 8) 10pm news. More cuts in bonus, salary (for top government servants, more companies to follow suit), and retrenchments... DBS Bank Singapore just "fired" 900 workers...

Rather seating down and wait time fly, I would like to share this article. It's by (once) Taiwan's riches man - Wang Yongqing, describing about the theory of a skinny goose. Very useful tips for all of us.


1 要学习瘦鹅忍饥耐饿,刻苦耐劳的精神。

王永庆强调说:“追求舒适与快乐的代价,就是刻苦耐劳。”他又指出,时下的年轻人大都希望做有意义而容易的工作。其实,容易做的工作是不会有多大意义的。所以年轻人不要怕困难,只要下决心去做,任何伤脑筋的事终必克服,任何乏味的工作也会苦尽甘来。

I agree with this tip. Hard work is essential... It's always fair. No pain no gain, no drill no skill, no effort no reward.

2 学习瘦鹅面对困境时的坚毅态度,等待机会到来。

任何人在走霉运时,要学习瘦鹅一样忍饥耐饿,锻炼自己的忍耐力,培养毅力,等待机会到来。只要饿不死,一旦机会来了,就会有饲料吃,迅速地强壮肥大起来。

I like this tip the most. Let me live on, and I'll fight another day.

3 瘦鹅之所以瘦,问题不在鹅,而在饲养的方法不当所致。

企业经营的道理也是一样,如果经营不善,问题完全在员工,而在老板管理方法不当所致。企业要提高团队的经营绩效,必须要有一个能干的领导人。

I guess the third tip once to tell us that we always need to "sharpen our axe" before we chop down more trees... We need to solve problems or handle adversity with the best methods and solutions...


Keep holding on...
