Practical Wisdom from Ancient Examples

Ancient wisdom provides us with practical examples of how grasping key points can yield remarkable results.

Consider the example of a humble donkey, a valuable asset in farming and labour. Yet, donkeys are not always obedient. The key point lies in their abdominal tendon, a seemingly insignificant spot on the left side of their abdomen. A simple kick to this point can transform a stubborn donkey into an obedient worker.

Discovering Breakthrough Points

Discovering Breakthrough Points

To achieve a similar result with half the effort, everyone has to discover a breakthrough point diligently. 

Consider the story of CaoCao during the Three Kingdom Period. He decreed that anyone trampling over the wheat field would face execution.

When his horse violated the decree, he held himself accountable. Unable to take his own life due to his heavy responsibility, he upheld his words by cutting off his hair - a grave offense in ancient times.

This dedication to his own decree inspired his soldiers, highlighting the significance of setting an example through one's actions.

One of the underlying principles necessitates a rigorous commitment to adhering to rules and establishing a commendable exemplar. In essence, rules and guidelines represent the major policies of governing states, and leaders must embody the principles they advocate.
