There’s a Chinese saying:
Success on stage for 3 minutes; 10 years sweat and toil backstage.
 
Living in our instant noodle fast food environment nowadays, like black-hearted China mainland food suppliers, we try to cut corners here, skip some testings there, add some additives here…
All in the name of quicker, faster, sooner!
Life is not just study hard and work hard.
Sometimes don’t listen to what others say; observe what “successful” people (in your eyes) do – see Success Indicator.
