Meet Pat Gelsinger again

我的前Intel大老板、现EMC大老板:Pat Gelsinger,无疑是2009~2010年IT Industry的风云人物。3月19号,我加入EMC的第二天,参加公司的第一个大型会议就是Pat的all hands meeting。由于meeting request是我on board之前就发出了,我居然到达人头攒动的meeting room后才知道原来是Pat大帅哥的会。虽谈不上老乡见老乡两眼泪汪汪(毕竟金字塔尖的Pat不认识我这个无名小卒),再次看到帅哥的风采,感觉他比在Intel时更轻松、更幽默、更风度翩翩,说不出的亲切感油然而生。
 
Pat Gelsinger眼里的EMC Top5 critical missoins:Lead, Virtualize, Maximize, Simplify and Partner。EMC的两个Goal分别是在Information Storage Industry和Virtual Storage Industry里成为leadership role。参加完这次all hands meeting,我的first priority是把EMC的product line搞清楚,匆匆!
 
顺便介绍一下,EMC的新同事都很年轻很nice,而且公司各个角落都分布着微软的前同事,还有HW的大部分人是从Intel去的,哈哈,我认识的人多吧!我所在的team目前只有4个人,大家还都在看书学习中。。。听说下个礼拜澳洲的manager要来,到时候就要听从发落了,是会去澳洲training呢?还是留在上海被澳洲派来的人training?
 
繁华的五角场,每当傍晚6点15的班车开上中环,就能充分领略其华灯初上的摩登繁荣景象。
 
Spend every minute on doing right thing, embrace every opportunity and challenge, cherish every piece of happiness and excitement, then my life will be complete.

Song Recommendation

1996年Barbra Streisand 把1958年一部同名法国电影改编成温馨、浪漫、却又充满机智对白的作品《The Mirror Has Two Faces 》(越爱越美丽)。史翠珊一手包办了制作、导演、女主角以及插曲的谱写。《I Finally Found Someone》是这部电影最为脍炙人口的名曲。由布莱恩亚当斯与她合唱,大部份电影中的主题曲,就是有歌唱的,通常都不是为电影所写的,唱片公司搭配在片尾字幕时播放的,所以跟电影内容都没什么关系。不过,这部电影中的曲子不一样,因为这是芭芭拉史翠珊的电影,要求完美的她,怎么可能同意放一些不相干的曲子进来?所以,重新为电影量身打造了这首《I finally found someone》。里头的歌词,就像在描写两人的关系一般,而且不只是歌词写的好,曲子本身也是很好的一首曲子。芭芭拉史翠珊跟布莱恩亚当斯的对唱,真的有那种终于找到“right one”的那种高兴与感激之情。因为在这么多的人当中,Greg终于找到Rose,即使因为错误而失去一次,却及时省悟,这又是男主角的另一件幸运事。就像歌词中的:「I finally found someone, someone to share my life。」因为认识你,生命有了新的开始。
I finally found someone
Bryan: I finally found someone, who knocks me off my feet;
Bryan: I finally found the one who makes me feel complete…
Barbara: It started over coffee, we started out as friends;
Barbara: It’s funny how from simple things; the best things begin…
Bryan: This time is different;
Barbara: la la la la
Bryan: It’s all because of you!..
Bryan: It’s better than it’s ever been;
Together: Cuz we can talk it through;
Barbara: My favorite line was ‘Can I call you sometime?’;
Barbara: It’s all you had to say…
Together: To take my breath away…

Together: This is it!
Together: Oh, I finally found someone; Someone to share my life;
Together: I finally found the one – to be with every night;
Barbara: Cause whatever I do
Bryan: It’s just got to be you!
Together: My life has just begun, I finally found someone…

Bryan: Did I keep you waiting?
Barbara: I didn’t mind
Bryan: I apologize
Barbara: Baby, that’s fine
Bryan: I would wait forever
Together: Just to know you were mine;
Bryan: Ya Know – I love your hair…
Barbara: Are you sure it looks right?
Bryan: I love what you wear…
Barbara: Isn’t it too tight?
Bryan: You’re exceptional!
Together: I can’t wait for the rest of my life…

Together: Oh This Is It!
Together: I finally found someone; Someone to share my life,
Together: I finally found the one; to be with every night…
Barbara: Cause whatever I do
Bryan: It’s just got to be you
Together: My life has just begun; I finally found someone…
Barbara: And whatever I do.
Bryan: It’s just got to be you!
Barbara: My life has just begun…
Together: I finally found someone…

香氛时刻

喜欢ANNA SUI的Flight of Fancy迷人的香味,她给予我感官上的enchantment,就像她的中文名字“逐梦翎雀”带给我心灵上的resonance。
 
“展开双翅,飞向梦想乐园。是时候探索、发现自己,以融合异国诱惑的迷人力量唤醒你的感官……体验改变的那一刻。开启了令人振奋、喜悦的新旅程。”
 
只需抹一滴在动脉处,荔枝、蜜柚、柠檬、紫苍兰、玫瑰花和琥珀,还有白色木质调和麝香,达到平静与安稳的力量。

LOVE | FOCUS | NETWORK

Bistrow, Lamington, Cappucino, Up in the Air…
 
<LOVE>
男人最着迷的永远是随性的女人。在男人眼里,女人最大的魅力在于琢磨不透和不在意。
 
女人的两个角色:妻子,情人。当女人成为前者时付出最多的爱。讽刺的是,只有女人成为后者才能得到最多的爱。当男人将后者变成前者,后者的魅力已不在。
 
能够激励男人改变的并不是愿意给他做饭、洗衣服的女人的鼓励,而是他永远得不到的女人给他的刺激。
 
<FOCUS>
成功人士和非成功人士的区别在于是否坚持和专注。
 
对一件事情专注100小时的人能把它做好;专注1000小时的人能做的出类拔萃;专注10000小时的人便是站在世界的巅峰。
 
<NETWORK>
所谓Networking的能力,并不是在一个圈子里认识很多很多人,而是在很多不同的圈子里认识人。
 
多跟比自己聪明的人交流;如何容易的接近别人永远是值得学习的。

Dove and hope

EMC真的很贴心,official offer package里面出乎意料的赠送一盒Dove心语,比起当年收到Microsoft的鼠标垫要亲切,红心~~
 
人生总需要在一些岔路口面临options,有些东西很好,但好的无法激起兴奋,也许是自己曾经付出了太多、经历了太多的pain,得到的并不觉得是超乎想象的。其实并不需要刻意去选,仍然相信:destiny has already been determined, what I should do is to humbly follow.
 
温馨说,经历越多,人生越完整。总会在一些时候不得不面对难以割舍的东西,但是每个人都是在经历了一次又一次的折磨和痛苦后更加理性的面对生活。
 
很高兴自己拥有挫折,很欣慰自己能平心静气的面对挫折。相信,everything happens for its own sake, the key is what you learn from it.
