王永庆的一席话 (非常值得大家省思)

一根火柴棒價值不到一毛錢,一棟房子價值數百萬元..

但是一根火柴棒卻可以摧毀一棟房子,可見微不足道的潛在破壞力,

一旦發作起來,其攻堅滅頂的力量,無物能禦。

要疊一百萬張骨牌,需費時一個月,但倒骨牌卻只消十幾秒鐘。

要累積成功的實業,需耗時數十載,但要倒閉,卻只需一個錯誤決策。

要修養被尊敬的人格,需經過長時間的被信任,但要人格破產卻只需要做錯一件事。

一根火柴棒,是什麼東西呢?

它就是下列四項:

1.無法自我控制的情緒。

2.不經理智判斷的決策。

3.頑固不冥的個性。

4.狹隘無情的心胸。

檢查看看,我們隨身攜帶幾根火柴棒?

Let's try translating them:

The Title: Some Words by Wang Yong Qing (Worth Giving Thoughts to)

One match costs less than ten cents. A building may cost millions. A match can destroy a building. It can be seen that some little hidden potential destructive power can become tremendously huge once they explode.

It may take a month to set up a million pieces of dominoes but for these dominoes to completely fall, it may take only ten over seconds. It takes decades to build a business empire but it may only take a wrong decision or strategy for it to fall. Long time is required for a person to earn respect and trust but he could lose all these by doing only one wrong thing.

So, what is a stick of match?

It can be any of the following:-

1. Uncontrollable emotions.

2. A decision made without conscientious thought.

3. Stubborn character.

4. Narrow mindedness and a heart without sympathy.

Examine yourself and see how many matches you carry?

NB.:
Wang has just passed away in the United States on 16-10-2008.
