The 5th monthly event of Project YoungPros was conducted last Sat and we again met our goals. Thanks to our guest speaker Stella and Ronnie, thanks to our MC Cindy, and thanks for our audience, especially those who came all the way from Guangzhou to Shenzhen.

Upon the completion of the event, i have also received good feedback to improve and for future development. So happy as they do really CARE. We will be working on that in terms of priority.

Cindy is doing great, these days improve a lot. So happy about that!

I also agree with Stella that using PPT could distract audience, will work on it in some right situations as well.

Happy to note that Ronnie likes the DREAM thing. Really proud of it.

And the very thing that i also want to mention, which inspired by my bro Michael : It doesn’t matter when you HAVE KNOWN it; You don’t own it until you apply it and make something happen.

What We Can Imagine, What We Can Achieve!

This is a personal note to my all-time bro.

We care more about trust, love, care, and support, instead of contribution only, and that’s what family is all about.

When someone in the family needs support, we won’t question your contribution; instead of it, we offer our hands and unconditional support.

When the family is in good times, we hope we can share with you the joy of success; when the family is in hard times, we hope you can join us to overcome the challenge.

And that’s it, Family! Hold tight, and hold together!

What We Can Imagine, What We Can Achieve! The most thing that matters is not the thing itself, it’s the way we handle it.

Find the right way, and we can make it happen together; and of course, we can find the right way together.

Bro, think it over, and don’t let go!

Well, we do learn something from the way we are making Project YoungPros (PYPs) happen. Yet here I also want to clarify that by writing this series, we are not claiming victory, but in the purpose of sharing with what we have learned along the way, and hopefully you will join our discussion, and benefit from it.

Ok, that’s enough, let’s get straightforward. The topics I am going to cover here will be mainly based on the frequently asked questions raised by our event attendees. So it could also happen to be “your question” as well.

Question: It seems that you guys are pretty busy, how could you afford the time/resources to Project YoungPros?

Yeah, firstly, we all have a lot of things to do, yet we might not be THAT BUSY as we think, if we are good at time/task management. Common best practices are like:

  1. Set priority. Work never ends, so, better set priority. Do more important things to less your work time; less your work time to do more important things.
  2. Say NO. It’s hard, but it is necessary when you are dealing with a lot of sudden work daily.
  3. Multi-tasking and leverage the power of technology. Use dual-monitor (like extension) if you need to deal with Outlook/Word/Excel all the times.

Second, indeed, Project YoungPros doesn’t happen in ONE day. So far we have successfully conducted four monthly events. However, we started laying our foundation since last year. We do it step by step, bit by bit. And along the way, persistence is very important.

Last but not least, a couple of our event attendees commented us as GREAT (伟大). Well, we need to thank you for your generous comment (e.g. Lin J), while actually, Project YoungPros is the very thing where our dream/interest lies in, we are just doing what we love. By the way we are contributing, we are also gaining. We do enjoy it very much, that’s what passion is all about. Specifically to me, it’s like a way of recreation to recharge myself from heavy work.

To sum up: time/resources could be a problem, but there is solution, and never an excuse not to make things happen.

So much for this, and I hope it sheds some light here.  Please feel free to leave us your comment and we will be more than happy to have conversations with you.

What We Can Imagine, What We Can Achieve!

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!

When i am looking for something about “value has a value only if its value is valued, i found this story:

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a Rupee 500 NOTE.

In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this Rupee 500 note?”

Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this note to one of you but first let me do this.” He proceeded to crumple the note up.
He then asked, “Who still wants it?”

Still the hands were up in the air.
“Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now all
crumpled and dirty. “Now who still wants it?”
Still the hands went into the air.

“My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson.
No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not
decrease in value. It was still worth Rupee 500/-.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

You are special. Don’t ever forget it! Never let yesterday’s disappointments overshadow tomorrow’s dreams.

“VALUE HAS A VALUE ONLY IF ITS VALUE IS VALUED”

“Make some corner of the world distinctively yours”

A very inspiring story. Enjoy it!And it is a bit like “Do not let what you cannot do interfere what you can do!

What We Can Imagine, What We Can Achieve!

Today, our mate, Olivia, in Team Project YoungPors, brought to us two pieces of good news:

1. We got a very well-designed, and green, business/name card for Team Project YoungPros. (Great thanks to Heidy)

2. Olivia’s friends, two American girls Heidy and Samantha, one Chinese girl Jane, were inspired by Project YoungPros’ Vision and Mission, and are very interested in joining us in the journey ahead.

In the last week, I was also inspired by Mozilla’s CEO. Mozilla is famous for Firefox, yet Firefox is just one part of Mozilla’s product. Mozilla is actually a non-for-profit project, they are building software, and building a community that build and distribute software.

Project YoungPros can be doing the similar thing. We organize event to empower people to empower themselves, and we build a community that organize event to empower people to empower themselves. This is a great vision, and could make a big difference.

The journey ahead is unpredictable, yet full of possibilities! We aim high, while we start from doing small things great and professionally. The upcoming event this Sunday is our second event, following the 1st one that focus on talking about career advancement. Really look forward to the second event and to discover a lot more fun in work/life balance.

For those of you who would like to join us, you can register here:

For me myself, I wish, and am working on to see the possibilities of Project YoungPros, and to work together with our team to seize the possibilities!

And Team Project YoungPros, I am so proud of you! Let’s make great things happen!
