Are You Hungry?

“What I was given was the chance to go to school – that was the biggest opportunity when I was young.  I valued every single moment at school and I valued every single moment with my teachers and principals.  I wondered all the time if I could maximize my opportunities by gaining just a little more knowledge, by asking around more. Because of what you don’t have and the need to survive, you keep seeking opportunities.” – Olivia Lum, Group Chief Executive and President, Hyflux Ltd.

One of Singapore’s business darlings on her hunger for knowledge and opportunities – do we also hanker for the same, or are we satisfied with the here and now?
