With the Asian Games due to start, what should China accomplish here? The following is a list of things in priority.

1. Grace - China should exhibit grace to win affection as it chases performance excellence. If China strikes gold here that will be an achievement as well albeit social. Its a show case to the people far south in South East Asia. China's contingent ought to try to win as many medals possible but do so in very graceful manner. Exhibit China's people are friendliness and warmth.

2. Sportsmanship - Demonstrate that for China it isn't all about winning only but it is also about searches of excellence in humanity. Don't mistake this as cannot make a single mistake. What is meant here is how the Chinese team study their performance with seriousness yet with joy of learning, respect, compassion and grace. At the end if China wins it happens to be a by-product only, not the main product. The main product is how the human behave as they search for life excellence.

3. Communication - Although this event is only held for a few weeks, China use this opportunity to communicate with everyone. Build bridges of communication - i.e. things Chinese - the brands, the way of life, entertainment etc.. Let others have a better understanding and appreciation of Chinese. Don't end up a snob and China doesn't always have to the first or the boss. Example, Chinese brands should exhibit their quality but not stifle others until everything is only Chinese. That's not co-existence. When others don't have a voice, resentment sets in. So it is artful communication where Chinese and other Asians appear together. By the end of the event if everyone there is rooting to see Chinese sportspeople perform again, then that's excellent communication.

4. Don't single out Japan as the nemesis even though it is likely the toughest competitor. Behave with great sportsmanship. This is vital. Sports are sports. Politics are politics. Both are different arenas. Ability to differentiate this will lift China up several notches as China maintains its grace and humanity.

5. Integrity with Discipline. This is a good feature to exhibit. It has to do with professionalism and excellence, thus this attribute must be clearly present together with grace.
