  16. 16. Practice The Painful Peace-making Process Who are your enemies? You may have one, or some. I have many. “The best way to destroy your enemy is to make him your friend.” This is President Abraham Lincoln’s famous quote. But I learned this from my enemy through the painful peacemaking process. Mr. Contest chair, ladies and gentlemen, and Mr. D, who was my enemy. He and I worked for the same company for 20 years. He was 15 years older than I, and he retired at the end of last year. Although he was objectively a lovable personality, I didn’t get along with him at all. He was bossy to his colleagues acting like a slave-driver to the younger staff, and especially to me. Three years ago, he and I were working on a project. In our project discussions, he never stopped talking because he was always fascinated with his own brilliant ideas. Then I always felt ”Huh?” Because his ideas sounded to me boringly conservative, painfully classic, and horribly counter-productive, which, I believed, wasted my time. Ultimately, I avoided having face-to-face meetings with him, and shifted to communication via email. Email was very good. I didn’t hesitate to ask him to do this, and do that until he complained that I had relied on email too much, but I didn’t care. I knew he wasn’t good at emailing, I took over the project control. I became a slave-driver to him. An eye for an eye. Was it fun? Oh, absolutely. When I saw him making mistakes, (hehehehehe) I was happy. But when he pointed out my mistakes, I got angry.
  17. 17. Practice The Painful Peace-making Process “ Mr. D, It’s truly unfortunate that you and I had lots of bad memories, and I almost always felt uncomfortable with you.” The room became deadly quiet. And the silence was deafening. Then, there was a pregnant pause “You were really nasty to me for 20 years. You were really a good “bad role model” to me.” Having said this, I started breathing again. Taking the fresh air in, I regained my composure. “But those were all valuable lessons to me.” “I learned how to not behave like you. I learned how to not talk to people like you did. You were really a bad role model. I learned from you what’s important about being a nice person. ” Then, without thinking, I blurted out. “Thank you, Mr. D, for your priceless lessons. All the best and good luck!” Then I drained another glass of beer as if I were drowning all my bad memories. At the end of this painful peacemaking process, I looked at him; he smiled a very poignant smile at me. Ladies and gentlemen, who are your enemies? You may have one, some, or many. But let’s remember, you are still consciously and unconsciously, and maybe subconsciously learning from your enemies every day; and you become better than yesterday. When you learn from your enemies, they become a part of you. When they are a part of you, ladies and gentlemen, they are not your enemies anymore.
