  • See things from the others’ point of view, not only your own
  • The Customer is King (and can be challenged)
  • The two signs for crisis in Chinese say Danger (wei) and Opportunity (ji)
  • “The lucky ones are those who succeed with everything, the unlucky ones are those who are hit by everything” (Eugène Labiche)
