【总结篇】

How can I make a difference?

I can make a difference!

找到一个点(市场),发现问题,解决问题,放大过程的价值,做你的王!
多问几个So what?

尽早发现身边的问题?

不要给自己任何借口!

用最少资源,实现最大价值!

不要盲目做什么,要有Accurate Plan!

不要过分相信自己,也不要过分相信别人!

经常赞赏你的人不能帮助你什么,相信批评你的人,他们最可敬!

以上,就是来自老板Circle,一个曾在麦肯锡,香港《明报》,毕业于HK University的一位Lady。

That’s it.

更多,更难言表。

【感悟篇】

Circle,
This is Yuhang’s understanding on the home page, and some reference from the
website. There are also some pictures, but cannot be shown in the mail.
I haven’t comment his understanding yet. But before that, I’ve talked with
him about the principle to find best practice, we all found it difficult to
find, but I haven’t got enough time to look into that.

@@

PLEASE ask him to write to me, and let me know what is his understanding, or your understanding.   
I do not think it is difficult to find at all.

@@ 
Do you think it ok at the current home page, if we just use a paragraph to
introduce what we do? If so, we don’t need to spend much time on the

homepage design now, since I myself still not so clear about which reference
to take.
@@

my point is: I just do NOT think the page design has ANY PROBLEM at all.

Compare with the content, and user friendly etc. The page design just has absolutely no problem.

That is why I feel extremely uncomfortable in seeing U tell me, we regard the page has problem?

What is the difference compare with Xiao Yin , the leaf sculpture, that while he has million of problem on content and he regard the page is not beautiful.

I feel extremely worry about this kind of comment. I even worry more that U do not criticise them for thinking this way.

I really worry about this very very very much.
@@

I do not understand what are U writing.

Is it, our position is to be a website to help Canton fair visitor to find the hotel which they are looking for, try the best to help them to meet their buying criteria, to bridge all information gap.

And then we use advertising model as business model.

What is the problem?

I just do not understand.
@@

We do not need to TELL them who we are.

We need to HELP Them to solve their problem.

We need to let them think, we are a useful site, so they would come back again and again.

I just do not understand what are U saying. Sorry @@
@@

jackie,

Please answer, when U are looking for ref. WHY Budget hotel is the key?

PLease answer explictly in great detail.

Do U understand, we are looking for BEST PRACTICE, then we need to understand what is our issue.

In our site, the most important issue is NOT, if that is budget or not. Since in every hotel site, people would have certain concern on price. So, if it is budget or medium price or high end hotel is not too important.

In fact, our issue is:  we are a site which need to try our reader to learn the location of the hotel from a particular point.  how do others inform readers about how to find out the location of different hotel with particular location. NOT budget hotel at all.

So, if U type budget hotel as major keyword, it is 100% wrong. NOT 99% wrong.

In fact, why choose budget hotel?

There are many budget accommodation, such as hostel, guesthouse, Bed and breakfast etc.

So, why just use budget hotel as keyword?

This is an extremely serious issue.

Either U or the intern should write an article to review this mistake.

This is a typical case,which U would focus on relevancy and it is absolutely on a completely wrong direction. And U just do not notice at all.

Then ALL THE TIME, several weeks, months of time would be waste. because of the wrong keyword.

@@ what are U trying to learn?

search feature?

Colour of the site?

tone?

Function?

Or the writing?

U need to learn what is the thing U need to learn then decide the keyword.

If U are talking about writing. Are U sure budget hotel is the key?

Or there is many other word?  I think I have forward many linkage to U already. Right?
@@

Of course, we would add rating and review later.
@@

when we try to find those ad, then should we add other features? 

Again, Jackie, please try your best to share with Yu on what is BEST PRACTICE.

From this report, it shows he has no concept of BEST PRACTICE. He is just finding some practice.

【告别篇】今天老板又走了,北上了,据说看奥运了,祝福!

昨天下午,Erik来了,之前的一个美国实习生,也带了个Chinese spicy girl,可我也没正眼瞧她,总觉得一个中国woman就应该首选中国man,怎么着也要为下当下男女比例失调多尽一份力!

美国佬就是敬业,一到公司就操起电脑准备工作,我还琢磨:“难道就不休息下什么的?”。最后得知他们还未进食,于是Jackie就带他们去吃了顿饭,不一会儿就回到公司。

实际上,这次旅途是他目前效力的深圳公司安排他去欧洲出差,而回国的第一站就是来到广州,而来到我们公司也算是Go home了。【回顾在广州】(08年奥运-历史的脚步)

当然,他现在也不属于我们公司,这次来只为短暂的停留,也借此来请他解决几个技术问题。

于是,Jackie就要求我直接和他接触,并尽可能多的得到有价值的信息。我当时也说OK啦,虽然之前我和他在Skype里有过聊天,但都是文字上的,要是说沟通的话,没多大信心,因为过程要设计很多专业术语。

还好,他够热情,够专业,也懂一点点中文。

开始前,Jackie就拿出Mp3放在他的Apple笔记本旁,准备录下整个谈话,这也是我们公司的一个文化!我也很赞赏这样的记录,因为,这给我们提供了一个反思的空间,也与老板强调的“反思行为背后的动机”这一点不谋而合。

Erik很直接,第一句就是:What do you need me to do?

弄得我很尴尬!其实,我想寒暄一番,来个中国式的闲聊,可惜水平有限!

也开始感慨:学习永无止境!

于是,我也不客气,直奔主题!这次的重要问题就是要解决Rating System的安装问题。

OK!他也缓了一下,喝了一杯老板推荐的绿茶。接着,打开笔记本,很熟练就进入了“Main Topic”

不一会儿,电脑上显示有来电,于是从口袋里掏出一款Iphone…..

突然开始觉得,中国的IT产品与国际的差距不只是技术上的,更是Product Oriented(产品为导向)到Customer Oriented(以客户为导向)的差距。

我也离开了一会儿……

结束通话后,我赶紧走了过去,他微笑着说:Just one more call, sorry!我也有点意外,也有点小尴尬。

于是,我打算去书房倒杯水,慢慢喝着。没想,一出来,只见Erik在办公室里四处寻找什么,直到看见我,说:sorry!我才得知,他是在找我!这一点让我很吃惊,也很感动。因为他完全可以打完电话后,等着我来,可他没有。

接下来,我们也很好的进入了状态,我用很简单的专业英语问他问题,他也很迁就我,沟通上也算凑活。

两个小时下来,主要问题还是没有解决,只是要等他和系统提供商通邮后才有答案。有点失败,不过也得到很多建议,关于SEO,网站设计之类的,更多的还有鼓励。听得最多还是那句:

You are so smart!

(你很聪明!)

搞得我很受宠若惊,我们所做也只是模仿而已,从别人那里找到值得借鉴的地方(代码),然后为以己用。

结束了,也还是要结束!

从今天起,离我要求辞职的日子还有五天,而这五天陆陆续续也有一些实习生要离开,而我的离开也会和他们一样。

刚才Jackie也对我的即将离开表示遗憾!其实,我也很不舍!

带走的,和带不走的,只有自己才懂得衡量。

我很珍惜在这里一切,我也知道,将来的某一天,曾经在这里的每一刻经历都会被放大!

感谢!
