Career Path


整理完房间,冲完凉,开着收音机,听着歌,叹着空调,小酌百威,微博一下,cool…这是我现在的写照。

最近少了写blog的冲动,一来实在很多事情做,二来有时间的时候微博一下好像更快。

Project YoungPros的博客雏形已经上线: http://www.projectyoungpros.com/blog 迟点会完善它的。

期盼已经的新同事,其实我一早已经将她当成战友,今天上班,第一天,感觉颇好,希望能继续下去。想起我工作以来,也直接、间接带过不少同事,最终都离我而去,挺是懊恼。但我算是尽心尽力,也算无愧于心。这次是跟我步调应该会比较一致的,希望我不会有大的失误,大家可以一起做好现在的工作,把握现在公司面临的机遇,一起冲上去。

想想,目前公司有5位同事都是经过我面试进来的,希望我们能向积极进取的方向靠拢,创造出属于我们自己的文化。Make Radica proud of us.

Sales is so exciting, i cannot wait to 全身心投入。

其实take risks真的没有想像中那么恐怖,而且当你踏出那一步之后,你会觉得很刺激,而且心目有着一股狂野的激情,莫名的自信,觉得什么事情都能做成!

Take the risk, take the leap! Make great things happen, and be proud of ourselves!

What we can imagine, what we can achieve!

P.S.最近看了电影Last Song,深知亲情的重要,我们要live peacefully.不要舍本逐末。

树欲静而风不止,子欲养而亲不待。这句话,从大三的时候,我一直记到现在。Mom and dad, i love you!

冲突不可避免,这是事物向前发展的一个必然产物。

很不幸,它感觉起来不是太爽;

很庆幸,因为我看到它了。如果没有冲突,事情又怎么向前发展呢?

跟往常一样,我还是会静静地思考为什么会出现冲突,如何解决它并且让这个冲突能够发挥它最大的价值。当然,像大多数冲突一样,问题其实不大,关键是只要有一方愿意冷静下来思考,并踏出化解冲突的第一步(这不需要一定是妥协或者让步),事情往往都能够朝向积极的方向去发展。

作为Project Director,我深深地感觉到我的不足:

A leader’s job is to see possibilities and to help people seize possibilities. (by Carly Fiorina)

经过长久以来的努力,我觉得在see possibilities方面我做得还可以,不过help people seize possibilities我还是亟待提高。

Leadership, leadership…很容易懂,做起来难,做到更难!

我一直在回味Jensen Huang (CEO of NVIDIA)的一句话: Building a company is extra-ordinary a great of fun, and it is also incredibly hard.

我的觉悟是,如果我不能对即将来临的困难与挑战处理好,那样不如早点偃旗息鼓,乖乖地做个好员工,再做个好梦。(Unless I am ready for all the hardship and difficulty coming to me, I would be better off if I let it go and be a good employee. That’s pretty easy and let my dream be my dream always.

I don’t wanna be a try-to-do person, I will make every attempt to fight for my dream!

What We Can Imagine, What We Can Achieve!

用中文也博客,还真的不知道怎么开头比较好。不过这也算是一个开头吧,嘿嘿!

Office Manager这个职位真好,我可以名正言顺地做着很多一直以来我都很想做的事情,在时机上也刚刚好,一来我突破了自己的心理障碍,二来我在现在工作上也取得重大进展,所以现在可谓是得心应手,充满着无限的激情。

从北京回来后,我开始执行我的计划,在Radica广州营造一个主动性的公司文化。(cultivate a proactive culture in Radica Guangzhou)。现在进展还挺顺利,已经有几位同事很有热情跟我一起去做这件事情。文化不是说出来的,如果只是写在Mission Statement那里,也没有多大作用。我们要做的就是一起去这种营造文化。就像鲁迅先生说的:路是人走出来的,走的人多了,也就成了路。

今天中午,我们会有个午餐分享(Luncheon Sharing),我主动地希望跟同事分享以下两个话题:
1. 我是怎么突破自己的心理障碍的
2. 沟通技巧

第一个话题纯属自己现在处于异常亢奋,激情澎湃的状态,希望能通过自己的分享让同事们在遇到困难和面临很大工作压力的时候会有更大的勇气和智慧去克服困难,达成目标。

第二个话题则是最近跟几位同事谈到的时候,大家都觉得有必要提高的一个方面。而且有同事还想去报课程。我在香港上过一些沟通的课程,也看过一些沟通方面的书,听过一些讲座。最重要的是个实用主义者,而且觉得沟通最重要的还是实践。所以我想分享一下再加上同事自己的实践,说不定能省一大笔钱呢。

充满激情的工作状态感觉很好!

What We Can Imagine, What We Can Achieve!

最近一个星期工作很顺利,同时也升职了,嘿嘿。我现在也算是有ger级的头衔。

通过参与John Dorris的NLP event,我意识到自己经常给自己设置一些障碍,尤其是心里方面的。总觉得前面会有很多不可克服的困难,或者就是我的年龄太小,经验不够,跟总监级的人交流会找不着北。

其实,这些都是自己给自己找的。

我的经验是,这不是我第一次发现自己有这样的倾向,但是我第一次有这么强烈的意愿觉得我一定要解决这个问题的时候。当然,这个时机是由于我工作上的压力,我如果不能在这方面有所突破,那接下来的工作不能做好。

过年的时候,跟以前同学聊起如何跟人在商务上打好关系,我意识到关系这东西不可能一蹴而就,有缘的话能很快做好,没有共同爱好的话,得有足够的耐心去培养。当时,我已下定决心要把这工作做好,虽然脑海中还没有一个清晰的思路怎么样才能做好。但我明白一点,这个世界上很多事情都不会有perfect plan,有些时候得走了一步,才能有第二步可走。You never know until you try.

机缘巧合,我在NLP event认识了Michael,我的兄弟。他是一个很有经验的coach,普通话说得很好的美国人。我们中间有着Make China a better place的共同愿景,这也是我们之间的connection。在跟他吃饭的过程中,他帮我找到了我的Magic Key,这应该是一把make things happen的magic key。 (I love you, Michael)

每个人的Magic Key应该会有所不同。我对自己的工作很尽心,因些谈到我自己擅长的领域的时候,我可以神采飞扬,双眼发光,像Michael说的就是”your face is shining, and with Pride!”。因为我说这话的时候,我知道自己在做什么,我知道自己在这方面是一流的专家,有凭有据,底气十足。那种自豪感和自信,make a difference. 所以我的Magic Key是自豪感以及专业。

而在这两周的工作中,当我心里上的障碍被突破了之后,我觉得真的是如鱼得水。所有事情都很顺利,但其实,除了我自己的心态变化了之外,其它外在因素都没有什么变化。

这是我跟一哥们的合照,我觉得挺开心,因为我真把他当朋友看待了。真心的!

志海 and Jeff Wang

而所谓的人与人之间的关系,即使是商务的往来,也没有我之前想像的那么复杂。有时候,用心就能交到很多朋友拉!

我自己的总结:

1. 做事情能有完整的计划当然是最好的;

2. 有些事情只能是一个模糊的概念,尤其是涉及到人的因素,因为人很主观,也很非理性。只有踏出第一步,才会有第二步。You never know until you try!

3. 要有耐心,罗马也不是一天就建成的呀。重要的是,Get it going and keep it going!

What We Can Imagine, What We Can Achieve!

Project YoungPros, 青年部落, finally we got our name here. It’s a milestone for me, 2 Mar, a day when Project YoungPros comes into being.

My dream is to make China a better place. And this is my way making it happen. We will focus on the accelerate the process of the transformation from a university student to a young professional.

Someone asks me how we are going to make it happen, while some others asks what our business model is going to be. Well, I don’t have a perfect one in my mind, not even a clear and organized idea. But I gonna figure it out along the way.

We don’t know what we’ll find when we get there, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we get back.

The real thing that matters is that we get it going, not just thinking about it all the time.

(more…)

well, it’s been a long time again…guess it is time for me to re-frame myself and get back to the right track from the current chaos.

Pressure
Thanks to Anthony Robbins, I used to manage pressure well. But the pressure these days is overwhelming as I am working closely with a tough CEO who once mentioned to me that I should grow myself in a tough way. Yes, I felt that, he is now helping me that way.

Nearly all people comments themselves under high pressure, but have you been working so often in your dream, fulfilling one task in a dream, switching to another one in another dream, and they are just happening in a single night…Well, that’s my status two weeks before a couple of days ago. Ever since I was born, this is the second time I have been in such situation, the first one happened in the early days when I was working with Leo two years ago.

But I always remind myself: Jeff, you must go through it. Once you have been through, you will feel comfortable with everything. And only in this way you will become a real achiever – the one who trully makes things happen!

So frequently, I used Kobe Bryant’s “If You Really Want It” to motivate myself, I used “狠狠狠” to push myself to do those things I am not much willing to do, I kept reading one page of “The Secret Daily Teachings” to inspire myself so that I kept focusing on the positive, I used…well, way too many methods and things, as long as they help.

Big pressure, huh…I guess it was.

Healthiness
Such situation won’t bring me health, I felt pain at my shoulders when I went to play basketball last Saturday. God, I need some changes, and changes for the better.

Still, there was one crazy thing I have done and I especially want to mention here, which is, I went jogging the other day in the early morning at 6:10, when it was all dark outside; when I was back, the sky just started to get a bit clear, and it was at 6:30. The feeling of jogging was really great.

A lot of people around were found unhealthy these days, I think I need to pay more attention as well. Speaking of this, wishing everything goes fine with my dear friend Schiller’s father.

Take care of yourselves, my friends, wherever you are, and whoever you are, as long as you are reading here.

Time Management and Psychology
Things changed for the better in the last few days. First, I read a blog post about “lessen work time to do more important things, do more important things to less work time”. And then I got further inspiration from the book “The Road Less Traveled” when I was reading it on the bus to office. There are two kinds of people, one is taking on too much responsibilities on themselves (I am one of this type and it is called 神经官能症), while the other type is everything is other people’s responsibilities (called 人格失调症). Luckily, I am just the former one and it is far easier to cure.

By these specific and random inspiration, I got somewhere and started to relax a bit, and am getting better this week.

Sweet Moments
Last Friday was my birthday. Apart from my girlfriend’s cool gifts, well, I really love them, I have also received special blessings from my dear friends, Schiller and Cindy, with Olivia and later Jessie and Abby. Both Seeds and NewStage are cool. I love you guys! Thanks!

Yesterday suddenly received a phone call from Karen, who told me that she felt what I shared with her before very useful at work, and also gave me a kind offer that I could stay at their family if I drop by SZ next time, as their new house has a spare room. Sweet, isn’t it. Thanks.

Systems Thinking
Systems Thinking is the best things I have learned from the Young Manager Workshop, which was remarked by the trainer the must-have gear to top management. When thinking a thing, don’t just think about ourselves, but also consider the other people/factors in our systems.

Well, so much for this, piece by piece, but I think I can conclude in following: I am a not-very-smart man who is working hard with faith and determination to go through the hard times with purpose of gearing up myself a person who is able to make things happen. Always think positive and solutions will come!

现在是凌晨一点五十三分,不过我还是没有睡意,因为做人要“狠”点。

今天我上了人生很宝贵的一课:做人要”狠”点。

做人真的要”狠”点,Leadership讲的是在被逼得无路可退的时候,有勇气并且可以带人杀出一条血路;讲的是不逆来顺受,敢于向“大象”说不,创建自己的规则。如果事事都唯唯诺诺,事事都墨守成规,那何来领导力,可谈不上有创新与突破。

敢于坚持正确的主张,并为之努力;在全局上做好策略,很多危机就会是机会。
