Weekly Greeting

Enjoy Working, Creating & Innovating -- Shirley's 61st Friendly Greeting, Sun, Oct 29, 2006

I am sorry for a technology problem, making this letter was sent with a wrong way automatically, so, I would like to send it to you once more and hope the mistake did not bring you too many troubles. Could you please excuse me?

How are you? Have you had a good week? I do hope you are well and have a relaxed and easy weekend.

It is a busy week. Every morning, I had at least 2 meetings. Sometimes, I had no time to have a breath and I run upstairs often. However, I caught my time to write my researching work as long as I could.

Now I feel lucky that the company has given me many duties, while I am learning art and music in my free time. They are influencing me with an imperceptibly way.

The company asks me, as the only manager from the company management layer, to attend a daily manager meeting at 9:30am and we have to hand the company a daily work report before 10:15am. That really has given me a good opportunity to read something before the meeting and to know what’s having happened in the industry, country and world, then to judge or adjust our work in the company. So it has given me a good opportunity to make an daily investigation for my researching work. Sometimes, I was surprised, how I could have had some of such good ideas?

When I was thinking and writing, some pictures often jump into my mind and made my thoughts clearer, just like I have made sure what I should paint. At this time, I often smiled to myself, sometimes I could not help to stand up to dance for my new discovery. In case I have a single office, otherwise, people would think that I was crazy, wasn’t it?

For instance, when I was thinking where should be the best point to make our main business-journalism and data to be connected and to be transformed with each other? What is the best point to collect our different mediums and products and to show our core competition power? I thought of the web site, only it can assume the duty to collect our TV & digital TV, newspaper, magazine, web sites, telephone and mobile phone together, to be a platform of information publishing, interaction, marketing and company's image-building. But, it can only be the first /surface layer of our system; the second layer should be an edition and business system; the third layer should be database system. The three layer structure works with multi- medium, bilingual and multifunctional style. There is some pillars run-through them while to run independently, they are just each single medium and the products on itself… When my thought from dark to clear, a picture has changed to be clear along with time, just like the process how I create a picture…

So right now, I am not only interested in my work, but also I enjoy it. I do feel that a company’s development needs some theory to guide. Especially when we are working in a totally new industry and there is nobody to teach us how to do it. We have to learn and explore something new every day. We have to summary our work and make our practice to be lifted up to be a theory, then to correct and adjust it along with time. A company’s running does not only need creating and innovation in business field, but it also needs to create and innovate in the theory field. I am happy to be appointed to lead some project groups to work on it.

Does your company pay attention to the researching work? Do you think that we should do some creation and innovation in our work and theory fields?

I am just a learner on art, music, English and the work on the web site in my free time. Anyway, I would really like to do a little bit things with what I have learned to make this little web site to be An Electronic Bridge Of Culture Exchange, Friendship, and Language Learning. During the process to help the others and to improve myself.

I do appreciate your understanding, directions and supports. I do hope to get your great help continuously now and in the coming time...
