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!

早上面试了一个女孩子,汕头人。虽然招她的机率不高,因为广东话达不到岗位的要求,但是她令我很是喜欢…

在我如实跟她说,她在这个moment不合适的之后,她离开了公司,半个小时后,她打来说:Jeff,能不能给我一个星期的时间,我可以提高,到时再给我一个面试的机会。

我说: sure. 谁又能拒绝呢?

什么是人才?这就是人才。

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!

在等世界杯第二场比赛的时候,发个帖跟大家交流一下关于看书。最近在博客跟微博上面看到不少人写他/她是怎么选书与看书的。

坦白说,我一篇也没有看下去

不过我想到的是另一个问题,一个我一直在想的问题:我们不应该只是一味地看书,我们还要将其学以致用。毕竟,当别人通过我们的成就去判断我们的水准的时候,不会有一项是:此人阅书无数,或者是此人曾阅书****

本人从大学开始喜欢看书,虽说不是阅书无数,但也看过不少,更有收藏书籍的习惯。但从工作开始到现在,我从不停地疯狂看书,到现在开始减少看书,甚至为自己定下了一个目标,今年最多买3本新书。原因很简单,有以下几点,跟大家交流:

1. 很多书去到最后,讲的都是同一个道理,只是殊途同归,表达方式不同而已;

2. 条条大路通罗马,小至我们要做到的某一件事情,大到我们要实现 的某个梦想,都可以有很多条路。但我们不需要每一条路都去走一遍。更多的时候,我们如果选择一条合适自己的道路后,坚定地走下去,我们会离我们的目标更加地近;

3. 书里面很多都是理论,甚少有书是理论结合实践的。理论是必要的,但却还没有足够。当我们还没有去实践的时候,它们对于我们来说,永远只是理论上可行。往往当我们去实践的时候,会发现,说跟做完全是两回事来的。所以,一味地读书但却不实践,不太可取;

4. 当书读到某个程度的时候,要更加专注于实践,在结合理论的情况下,比较容易出真知,也就是我们所说的智慧。而之后在实践的基础上我们知道需要补充哪些方面的知识,再通过读书来恶补所需要的理论知识,也会更加有针对性。

说了这么多,其实我想分享的几个要点就是:

1. 要读书,理论知识很重要;

2. 理论还不够,要实践,然后出真知,再回来补充理论知识,再实践,如此良性循环;

3. 读书读到某个程度的时候,要停一停,想一想,是不是时候转变一下focus,因为读书跟实践是相辅相成的,缺一不可。不同时期,应该有所侧重。

4. 读书读得最多的人,多数是学者,偏于理论;貌似这个世界还比较少学者会成为企业家的,所以有志成为企业家的人要小心,嘿嘿。

P.S. Cindy同学最近也有类似感悟,但我决定不追究这个感悟的版权。

前天在VeryCD发现了一个很好的课程:耶鲁大学开放课程. (打开http://www.verycd.com后搜索“耶鲁大学开放课程”就可以找到)

我下载了其中一个关于死亡的:http://www.verycd.com/topics/2824902/

很好看,很精彩。如果大学时代我的老师能够达到这种水准的话,那我应该不会翘那么多课了。
