Thinking in Chinese
After nearly 10 years of my life working for Chinese companies, most of them the richest and most powerful, there were many things that started to become obvious for me and that clearly differentiate the results between these and western companies.
This acknowledgment became clearer when I started doing business with the Chinese and making many Chinese friends in the business world. And even more when I noticed the differences in business models that they apply in different countries, and from the smallest to the biggest investments.

- Nr.1 - Save money and as much as possible

- Nr.8 - Copy from the best without shame
- Nr.9 - Cooperation is more important than competition
- Nr.10 - Work for something greater than yourself

This principle literally applies as well when they have work to do in the office, as they’ll have a bed to sleep inside the company when not finishing their work on time, or when having excess of work to do. [...]
