Holistic thinking in U.S. is rare.

Holistic thinking in China is all but natural.




Confucius wisdom quotes

If language is not correct,...
then what must be done remains undone.



China vs. USA compdetitive advantage holistic intelligence  

Because the IT revolution has made all economic structures and business systems much more complex. Understanding them requires systems thinking.

Modern systemic approach to innovation also requires fast systems thinking and starts with holistic thinking followed by holistic creativity.



Lao Tzu wisdom quotes Tao

Can you step back from your own mind and thus understand all things?

Lao Tzu



China's Competitive Advantage
Why does China's economy grow faster in today's increasingly complex world?
Chinese language is the difference that makes the difference. It makes holistic thinking habitual and thus is a great source of competitive advantage in today's era of holistic and systemic innovation.

Sun Tzu The Art of War quotes

Victory comes from finding opportunities in problems.

Sun Tzu



Those who think in a linear language, like English, with strict word order in a sentence are stronger in analytical thinking and organizing linear input-output processes, but weaker in systems thinking.

The Chinese language is not linear, it's image-based. It develops a habit of thinking holistically, and thus develops the ability to create holistic complex systems and systemic innovations better.

English has only 2 cases, German has 4 cases, and Hungarian has 18 cases. Therefore, the systems thinking abilities of those who think in Hungarian is higher. Holistic thinking of those who think in Chinese is even clearer. Thus the Chinese language creates a powerful base for a competitive advantage and faster development of the China's economy in today's increasingly intertwined world.

Americans wonder how I managed to establish World Innompic Games and the Planet of Loving Creators on a bootstrapping budget.

As to Chinese people, this is not a secret at all. They see that I used a holistic approach and harmonized the Five Basic Elements of the universe in the business design of Innompics.
