I learned something valuable from TNC Prof Suhaimi this morning during a special academic meeting. He was sharing his experience when he visited Pohang Steel Company (POSCO) in South Korea in September 2010, He was stunned while entering the main gate of the steel factory when he saw a writing “Resources are limited; Creativity is unlimited” on the gate.
I imagined how the workers in the company see the words every day when
they enter the gate.The message is obvious to them that their country
does not have much natural resources compared to other countries. But
their economic growth is not limited with the limited resources they
have. There are always a way out for
every country if they keep pressing forward without relying on
than South Korea, let’s take Singapore and Hong Kong, these two places are just a tiny
countries without natural resources such
as gas and oil, gold, and so on. Despite the situation, they are still competitive
and visible in the map of global economy. Size doesn't really matter to them, what
matter most is their creativity and tenacity.
are so thankful to God with the abundant natural resources we have, but please
keep in mind that it will never last forever. Resources are limited;
Creativity is unlimited.
