Last year while backpacking in China, I realized that in West we have mixed feelings, opinions and views of China, some of which are fair.
However, it is also good to look what we can learn from the country which for centuries was a leading trading partner full of great inventions we still use today.
✔️ “Made in China” association of being cheap and low quality has dramatically changed in the past years. Chinese companies such as Huawei are becoming leaders in technology.
✔️ China is one of the leaders in terms of investments into artificial intelligence (AI).
✔️ More than 850M people were lifted up from extreme poverty over the last decades.
✔️ Power of a long-term vision supported by strong execution.
It’s clear that we cannot perceive China as “West copy cat” anymore. It seems like that very soon China will become a great example of innovation to West.
How do you perceive China and what we can learn from this country?

It's December! The time for reflection and set-up of new objectives.
While I like the concept of noting down your New Year's resolutions, too often I hear vaguely defined sentences, which I doubt help people to achieve more.
I believe that New Year's resolutions shouldn't be a long list of actions you want to do, but rather a few personal breakthroughs which will stretch you.
With my experience of using Hoshin Kanri model in business, I wrote a blog post on how to define meaningful New Year resolutions which I think could drive personal breakthroughs.
In general I am a very slow book reader. I often use a marker to highlight the sentences which resonate with me the most or I want to re-read them after a while.
Some books are so refreshingly educational that I even decide to write a blog post, which serves as a summary of my key take-aways that I believe can be useful for you too.
This has just happened with "The Blue Ocean Strategy" book by W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne.
What are you favorite books which you have recently read and learnt a lot from?
