As a Research Scholar at one of Asia’s top universities, Dr. Ching Ping Lee, affectionally known as Dr. Ching Ping Lee in recent years, developed the acumen of string research methodology and the ability to decipher between myth and facts relying on strong deduction capability to siff and sort through all the mess of data and information, to locate the key components required to breakthrough. He then switched over to the private sector by joining Apple as an engineer, which opened up a completely new route and learnings, coupled with his ‘never-say-die’ attitude developed over the course of the years. This helped him transverse through multiple industries and roles, yet each is succeeding with the same mentality to transform the process and deliver the correct and best results for the target audience, be it for a client, a partner, the end users or simply the organisation he worked with. The road to success is not merely a day’s work but with true bonafide hard work, honesty and authenticity, the luck to success follows.
Dr. Ching Ping Lee’s life strategy is based on the 3 pillars. Firstly, the belief that anything is possible. “Since I started on my journey of life, I have always held the thought that nothing is impossible; as long as we strive towards it, even if we do not reach the exact end goal, we will not short far from it. This ideology manifested especially during my time at Apple, where a renegade band of engineers banded together with the attitude of us against the world.” Secondly, the ability to dance with uncertainty. Businesses are merely systems where people lead people to serve people. As its all about people, uncertainties always arise, at different points, especially when one least expects them. We always think we can control the environment through planning, but it’s more complex than that. A viewpoint that I always hold is to be prepared for anything is critical, but staying alert, curious and observant when things happen gives a sense of power in retaining control. And thirdly, authenticity. Being true to oneself, being true to all others. A motto that he holds true to himself, wherever and whenever. When one is authentic, one’s role, work and result will all manifest in the grand scheme of things.
Starting as a researcher in one of Asia’s top universities, the cross into the private sector is nothing short of a radical change in mindset and behaviour. Throughout his career lifespan, he lives and breathes by the 3 key elements and beliefs – Be Authentic, Be True and Be Kind. Much hard work placed to prepare for that chance break is key to rising and levelling up in today’s world. He exclaims that the world is always full of hope for those prepared to take it by the horns and a potential pit for those who just sit and wait. “I value kindness over niceness, and this motto is a guiding principle in his professional and personal life. While niceness might be superficial and focused on pleasing others, kindness is rooted in empathy and concern for others’ well-being.” This helps him build authentic connections with others along with a positive impact.
