Anything that requires(需要) change can be difficult. Yet (然而)in order to learn and grow and make progress (進步), you must change.

When facing a change , ask yourself Am I being open-minded? Or am I being  resistant?(抵抗)

Confront(面對) your difficulties head-on , force yourself to explore where they come from , and you'll find that you'll learn a lot.



Sometimes asking questions to gain(获得) perspective (看法)can be misperceived(误解)as being weak and indecisive (优柔寡断). Of course it's not. It's necessary in order to become wise and it is a prerequisite(先决条件) for being strong and decisive.

Always seek the advice of wise others and let those who are better than you take the lead.

The objective is to have the understanding to make the best possible leadership decisions.

Be open-minded and assertive at the same time and get it tight syne with those who work with you, recognizing that sometimes not all or even majority of people will agree with you.



Just worry about making the best decisions possible, recognizing that no matter what you do, most everyone will think you’re doing something—or many things—wrong. It is human nature for people to want you to believe their own opinions and to get angry at you if you don’t, even when they have no reason to believe that their opinions are good. So, if you’re leading well, you shouldn’t be surprised if people disagree with you. The important thing is for you to be logical and objective in assessing your probabilities of being right. 

It is not illogical or arrogant to believe that you know better than the average person, so long as you are appropriately open-minded. In fact, it is not logical to believe that what the average person thinks is better than what you and the most insightful people around you think, because you have earned your way into your higher than 

average position and you and those insightful people are more informed than the average person. If the opposite were true, then you and the average man shouldn’t have your respective jobs. In other words, if you don’t have better insights than them, you shouldn’t be a leader—and if you do have better insights than them, don’t worry if you are doing unpopular things. 

So how should you deal with your people? Your choices are either to ignore them (which will lead to resentment and your ignorance of what they are thinking), blindly do what they want (which wouldn’t be a good idea), or encourage them to bring their disagreements to the surface and work through them so openly and reasonably that everyone will recognize the relative merits of your thinking. Have the open disagreement and be happy to either win or lose the thought battles, as long as the best ideas win out. I believe that an idea meritocracy will not only produce better results than other systems but will also ensure more alignment behind appropriate yet unpopular decisions.




Work Longer and Harder

The harder I work, the luckier I get.


成功秘密 6:工作更长时间,工作更努力

我工作越努力就越幸运。 JAMEST HURBER


Make a plan today to increase the number of hours you work each day.

Resolve to get to the office one hour earlier and get a head start on the day. Work at lunchtime when others are gone. Stay one hour later to get caught up. This strategy alone will double your output while adding only two hours to your day.





 For example , when choosing which movie to watch or what book to read , are you drawn to proven(被证明是正确的) classics or the newest big thing?

In my opinion, it is smarter to choose the great over the new.
