5 Timeless lessons from tech-giant Alibaba’s recent $2.8b fine by Chinese authorities

  1. Pick your battles.
  2. But when the battles pick you, be humble. Don’t esteem yourself more highly than you are
  3. The battle-field is more of a school than a killing field
  4. Learners are winners
  5. Life is a marathon, not a dash

*Footnote

Did anyone miss the news that Jack Ma has increased his worth by over $2b, in spite of the overhang of the big fine? Can anyone fault the sense and sensibility embedded in these lines from the company’s recent letter on the incident: “Alibaba would not have achieved our growth without sound government regulation and service… For this, we are full of gratitude and respect.”
