Success is a relative story

Ironically, most Malaysians with brain dissatisfied with the achievements made under BN government compared to four Asian dragons. And BN government gains the ego through the praises from these third-world African nations.

I remember in an International Six Sigma conference, an Iranian engineer declared the target for productivity improvement for Iran is 2% per annum. Korean representative looked at me and mumbled how could Iranians only aimed for 2%.

Mentality or mindset difference sets apart Korea from Malaysia, Iran and other African nations.
