Weekly Greeting

The 52nd Friendly Greeting From Shirley, China, Sun, Aug 27, 2006

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

This week, the biggest feeling is that I suddenly realize that I like my projects work more and more. I do feel that they are something very suitable me for all of them need to work with creative way.

I started to make a dream ? to set up a Chinese Securities Market Data Statistic System from 1992. So, in 1993, I gave up my high salary and wonderful work condition, to take part in the work to found a national financial newspaper office. With the dream, I worked for 7 years and I was successful, my pages and books were welcomed, my paper got the highest award in the industry in 2000. However, for some reason, my project was stopped and changed nothing in the same year. The huge frustration made me almost jumped down from the window of my office on the 20th floor. Anyway, I was lucky for whole of the process, I had not been stopping to learn something new, for about 3 years, I flied from Shenzhen to Shanghai to listen to the lessons by the best professors in my weekends and holidays. From 1996 to 2002, I spent almost all of my free time to learn world economics, journalism and international business management while I was so busy on my work. Just in April, 1997, I flied to Beijing 4 times one month and sometimes, I was in 3 cities one day ? from Shenzhen to Shanghai, after an examination in a university in Shanghai, I flied to Beijing to work in the afternoon, several times, I almost missed my airplane for I was reading something in the airport. The continuous learning helped me to have a quick responding ability and high efficiency work on anything that the company asks me to do. So, in 2005, when my project was re-started, I felt quite easy to work on it with a happy heart daily. I do hope to create something best and to make it to be a summary in this field before I finish my employee life.

The second and the third projects asked me to study the best companies that have similar businesses with us in the world, to learn something new in the management field every day. I do feel good to have a so big room to think of how to organize a business with our Television, web sites, magazine and newspaper; to think of how to collocate our resource of researching, development, maintenance, marketing and service on the different positions; How to lead and to manage a team with a high education background. I am interested in my researching work for it is not something on the paper, but it is often a decision or a proposal to adjust something, to change some process or work, to add or cancel one or two departments. So, one side, I feel honor and an achievement feeling, the other side, I feel a big press for it is too important and we can not make a big mistake... I enjoy my work for its challenge and creative way. I love my company work more and more, just like the way that I love my painting, music in my free time...

Do you love your work in your company? Do you have any hobby in your free time?

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 beAn 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...
