QW 070512 “To-be-discussed Questions 0705”

Today’s article: Author Says People Will Forget Steve Jobs in the Future

Discussion A
1) Do you agree with Malcolm Gladwell when he says Steve Jobs will be forgotten in the future? Why or why not?
I don’t quite agree with his statement that Steve Jobs will be forgotten in fifty years or so, and Bill Gates will be better remembered than Steve Jobs. I thought the opposite is true. With due respect to Bill Gates and all his philanthropic activities, I must say the impact that Steve Jobs has left on us is so huge that we’ll never forget who he was and what he did, and people will keep talking about his biographical story.

2) Is it better to be remembered as successful person or to be remembered as a kind person? Why do you think so?
I completely disagree. People remember a person not for his or her success or kindness, but for his or her attractiveness as a human being. What I mean here by saying attractiveness is what makes people intrigued and attracted by the person. After I die, I’ll never want to be remembered as a successful or kind person. I’d be happy that people would remember me, one time or another, as someone that made them less bored.

Discussion B
1) What characteristics should a good businessman have? Why do you think so?
What comes up to my mind is the ability to find out products or services that are currently missing, but most people wish them to be. A good businessman discovers hidden needs and provides the solution for such unrealized needs and wants.

2) Do you think a person who is always honest can run a successful business? Why or why not?
I’d say it depends. I think honest people are not always rewarded best in a business world. You may have to refrain from talking facts and truths to be competitive or accomplished as a businessman. You need to be strategic depending on situations. By the way, being honest doesn’t necessarily have good meanings for me. There’s a commonly used expression called “a while lie” that tries to make others feel easy or assured. We sometimes need such “a white lie” from others and to others to make our life a bit easier.
