I had the privilege to meet Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday to seek his views and advice. This is the second time I met him in person. As usual, I gained much from the meeting. Tun Mahathir is 92 years old but still as sharp. The biggest takeaway from this meeting is the advice given by Tun Mahathir to our community. 1. Be like the jews, resilient. They migrated during the period where they were persecuted, but developed their self-worth by learning and mastering the work they do and as a result? they are now able to control the world by proxies.
