    年底了,虽然我还在有条不紊地工作着,但是年终的各种事情,还有为明年工作的准备,加上自己的个人项目,感觉每天都在踢被自己"prioritized"的皮球;擦边球就让它先搁置或飞过吧。 

    去年的全球销售会议上,大老板Ross曾与大家分享了他自己的座右铭,第30届美国总统Calvin Coolidge关于"坚持不懈 Persistence"的一段话:
     "Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."---Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of USA, 1872-1933.
     
    我当场就深深地被这段话感染了;马上打印出来,贴在办公室的墙上,经常累的时候读读。其实,Ross本人就是身边的一个活例子。今年的销售会议上,Ross除了重新分享我已经倒背如流的那段话外,又多加了这一句"色彩"更重的激励之语:
     "If you are going through hell, keep going!"---Wintson Churchill.
     
    有这种精神的人,很美丽;不但以这种精神以身作则,而且还常常以此感染与指导他人的人,更让人值得敬佩!很幸运Indium 公司里和我身边常常有这种人。谢谢你们,可爱的人们!
     
    Share with you!  Keep going, Anny! Keep rocking, Indium!  Cheers!
     
    PS: Indium公司的一位中国代理商曾坦率地对我说:我不理你(客户)喜欢我也好,讨厌我也好,如果你不买我的产品,我就"死缠"着你,每天在你面前转,直到你买我的产品为止……虽然当时我心中暗笑"也要讲究技巧啊",但是对他Persistence的精神,敬意油然而生!
