Budhism and Business

Jonney Shih's Company, Asustek, created the Netbook and is now a USD 21BN revenue company. He applies Buddhism to business and is quoted in Fortune as follows:

"In Buddhism you learn to accept everything, to let it flow through you," Shih says. "Then you can slow down and think clearly."

"Most people think Buddhism is passive or about escape," he says. "It's not. It's about confronting what's in front of you with a clear and flexible mind. That might be a hot day or your competition, but you accept it and do everything the best at that moment."

It is as Shakespeare says: "There is neither good or bad and it is our thinking that makes it so."

For those who are not familiar with Taiwanese companies, it is good reading.
