The 2020 is magical, and no one can be sure of the right answer to an increasingly elusive tidal change.
As Ray Dario put it in The Principles, “The most important thing is not to foresee the future, but to know at every point in time how to respond rationally to the information available.”For the young people most eager to see the direction of the future, they need to find the “key” to get through the growth barrier of life as they are carried forward by the tide of changing trends.
Recently, Dr. Zhao Xuejun, chairman of Harvest Fund, Shared with Tsinghua students face to face on topics such as the growth path and career planning that young people care about based on his own experience in the “Invest in the Future you Want — Harvest Fund’s autumn recruitment seminar for Tsinghua University”.In The eyes of Dr. Zhao xuejun, young people go to the future, more determine the future direction.
Everyone’s growth path is different, and the choices we make in our growth path determine how we face the world.My undergraduate course studies electronic engineering, engineer background, what is the characteristic of engineer?First, you should have a blueprint for everything you do.Second, after drawing the blueprint, we can go down to the production line to make every “screw” to control the quality of the project.The engineer’s characteristic of “unity of knowledge and practice” has been deeply imprinted on the underlying logic of my work.The way you walk will determine the direction you want to go.
After becoming an engineer, From foreign trade to futures, I co-founded Beijing Commodity Exchange, and later became a doctor of economics in Guanghua School of Management, Peking University. I had the honor to study economics and finance from a more macro perspective.In my first ten years of study and work, I was constantly choosing my way.After that, I firmly went to the present on the road of finance and became an engineer who just happened to be deeply ploughed in the finance industry.At important life nodes, we must make a choice, choose what we want to do most, and follow our heart. Only in this way can we gain a different vision and ability from others.
It is a time of challenge and uncertainty for young people today.In an age when there is almost no certainty, we still have to do certain things.What is a sure thing?It’s about focusing on things that have long-term value. It’s an iterative upgrade of the self-operating system.For Harvest, first of all, we should do research on audible fire and research on the forefront of investment. Second, all researches only run to the high point, not to the hot spot, and choose the high point between the high point and the hot spot.
For young people, the moment you walk out of school, you must adjust your mind to the right place, and be careful with the conclusions you have learned. The past halo is a burden for you to move forward, and it is also a factor that causes you to fail to succeed. You must keep your feet on the ground and go to the most basic and most needed place.
Doing business should be both idealistic and down-to-earth.To have an ideal is not to be in a hurry to achieve it.Despite the stress, I recommend that young people on campus spend at least a year and a half on the “least useful” things they want to do.During my postgraduate period, I read a lot of books, and a lot of my ability accumulation came from that time.In finance, we should be grounded, take root, truly understand the needs of customers and the market, and dare to struggle and take responsibility, so as to achieve success.
