The book I am going to tell you is a biography of Zhu Rongji. He was China’s prime minister from 1998 to 2003. During his term, he carried out a profound reform on state-owned enterprises, which significantly improved their efficiency, boosted their profit, and laid the foundation of the rapid growth of China’s economy in the following years. Until now, there are still a large number of people honouring him.
Besides describing the hardships and obstacles he encountered when he implemented these reforms, the book also focuses on his upbringing, this article is from Laokaoya website, especially how he grew up from an orphan to the prime minister. The author attributes his success to his diligence. He never gave up studying no matter what the environment was, how busy the work was and how tired he was.
I read it on my way home. It was quite a long journey and I had developed a habit that before I embarked on the journey, I would browse through the shelves in the bookshop and bought some book that seemed interesting. It was a good way to kill time.
The reason why I think it is useful is that it convinced me that success is never won by accident. Every successful individual has made a lot of effort to reach their status. And as a person without any special gift, I have no excuse to be sluggish. Inspired by the prime minister’s experience, I had worked really hard in the following semester and won a scholarship.
