Daily Chinese Proverb: Opportunity - "Strike When The Iron Is Hot"

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Friday, 14 August 2009
This is a quote that summarises, the importance of snap decisions. People with good judgement and experience usually have an edge over others as they know the right time to start and finish, to buy or sell, to plant or harvest. People that make these decisions see the opportunities in front of them and seize them.
