I always tell employees: 'The group's benefit is more important than your personal benefit.'
I never think I am successful. If I am successful, then I should be retired.
I respect the Japanese and especially like their execution and communication styles. Unlike the Koreans, they will not hit you from behind.
I have often asked myself if I would have worked as hard if I was as ill as Steve Jobs. My answer is that my wife most likely would not have let me work, and I would have stayed home. But I am not Steve Jobs.
Businesses should be focused on business, and social responsibility should be government responsibility.
