a short note on passing my thesis defense

Stand by the people, with the people and for the people.

Stand by the people, with the people and for the people.

This little note is written to memorize my passing the dissertation defense.

Thank you everyone in my life for all the supports during this amazing journey.

It took my some time to develop the wisdom of knowing being smart only gets you as far as the best vulnerable fighter, one is only invincible when he stands by the people, with the people, and for the people.

I did a simple head count: my thesis study involved more than 10 scientists from seven different research institutes from four different counties. It cannot be done without the active contributions from all my collaborators and mentors.

influence = creating pressure

peer pressure can have bad influence sometimes

In the book Influencer: The Power to Change Anything, Kerry Patterson describes the most effective strategies to influence the thinking and behavior of others. Among the most powerful strategies he recommends are positive peer pressure, irrefutable data, and creating new experiences for people that cause them to act in new ways.

But we can also use peer pressure to do good. In the end of the day, it is just a tool, depending on who is using it and how.

difference and collaboration

Differences between team members are the source of both the benefit and the friction in a collaboration.

The beauty of collaboration lies in the fact that the team members can complement each others.

But in the same time, it costs time and energy for the members to communicate and acknowledge each other’s opinions and contributions.

An effective collaboration must have a build-in mechanism to amplify the complementary, while encouraging and facilitating the opinion exchange.
