I learn this from my father, he told me that he had to fire all of the company's staffs when he closed down his bookstore business. He shared this story when I was teenager. He kept only one, that remains working in my parent company to this day. He was so proud to do this, and learn his lesson as a leader.
He taught me about responsibility when I was a kid. I refuse to become class leader as I don't like to lead. He told me to step up to the plate as others has rely on me to select me as one. Now I am glad to take those small responsibility, experience the burden of responsibility while I was young.
