And so I'm always looking for people who have a passion for productivity and have a passion for teaching or how.”- Thanh Pham “In the beginning phases, it's all about scaling yourself. Meaning you're the one who knows everything. So the more time you can free up for yourself. The more you can grow.

And so that to me is always very important.” - Thanh Pham “When I think about strategy for my personal life, what I would try to maximize for is essential to happiness. I'm trying to maximize unique experiences, memory, and ultimately happiness.” - Thanh Pham “I really want to communicate to everyone that hiring is a skill like anything else that you can get better at.” - Thanh Pham “Ask yourself at least once a year if you go through every single person in your company, you ask yourself, would I rehire this person again?” - Thanh Pham “The quality of our happiness comes from the relationships we have with people and the better relationships we have, the happier we are.” - Thanh Pham “I want to build more deeper, meaningful relationships with people and actually get to know them as people, not who they are, what they do for work, but actually know their stories, what they believe in what they stand for, what their hopes and aspirations are, you know, who they were when they were little kids, that kind of stuff.” - Thanh Pham “I'm just learning as we're going and people know that it's all done in good fun, and that we're all learning from each other. And to me, that's the most important thing about being open-minded enough to learn about different perspectives that I would never think.” - Thanh Pham About Our Guest Thanh Pham (@asianefficiency) is the Founder of Asian Efficiency.
