More Commentary of Lin-sanity
by: Chinese Scholar HWEE
The story begins with a Chinese classic literature “Romance of Three Kingdom”…
There was this general by the name of Liao Hwa (廖化) who was very low-key by nature. General Liao however, was deep in military knowledge and good in applying strategies on battle field. Due to his low-key character, Liao was not assigned with important military campaigns most of the time. But general Liao was patient yet determined in maintaining his macro perspective, be ready for sudden tasking. It was ironic that many critical moments and turn of events were saved in the hands of general Liao; through his wits and decisiveness when he was called upon for important moments.
There are talents live for the moments… and there are talents who seize the moment. General Liao and Jeremy Lin both share a common characteristic, that’s to be prepared for the moment.
Those who read Chinese would enjoy the text story above about general Liao Hwa’s moments captured in Romance of Three Kingdom.
