China: If it seems too hard, maybe you are doing it wrong... Michael Sylvester

 driver.pngFatiuge is a real thing.  Jet lag happens.  A few bad events  all happening in the same day can make you wonder why  you got out of bed at all...

 And this can be a challening environment, even on a good  day things are still going to go wrong sometimes.  

 So, we often find ourselves reminding people that if what  you are trying to do seems too hard, maybe you are doing  it wrong.  Not that your goal is inappropriate, but how you  are trying to get there might be based on something other  than what works here.

 The modernization occurring here has no meaningful Westernization component.  So, if part of  your long term strategy has been to wait until China has "developed enough" to start to do  things your way -- you might as well just pack up and go home.  Really.

 And it is not because there is a national smugness factor or some such thing where they laugh  behind your back after you leave the room.  They have no time for such juvenille silliness.

 They did not ask to be sitting in the cat bird seat, nor are they necessarily comfortable with it, but  they are doing everything they can to be commercially reasonable because they know we are all  in the same boat now.

 If you find yourself frustrated enough to introduce your golf clubs to your computer monitor, it  might be a good idea to just stop, back up a few steps and start over...

 We'll help.  That's why we are here...
