在政治世家裡,「大象」代表的,是姓氏、是權力、是既得利益,而在傳統企業世家裡,「大象」指的則是人情世故、是派系、是利益分配。在約定俗成的既定規則中,要移開大象,需要的,絕非蠻橫武力,而是不願苟且,選擇鋌而走險的氣魄。

因為,一旦大象被移開了,面對的是房間的空無一物。一無所「有」的同義詞,卻也是一無所「失」,「 Nothing to lose」的狀態,不論是資產還是負債,一切歸零,都要重新開始。In a political family, the word elephant represents last name, power, and vested benefits. And in traditional-business families, the word elephant means ways of the world, faction, and distribution of benefits. In the conventional set of rules, what it takes to remove an elephant is definitely not the arbitrary use of force, but the uncompromising and risk-taking kind of vision. Because once the elephant is removed, one would be facing an empty room. The synonym of “having” nothing is exactly “losing” nothing, a status of nothing to lose. Whether it’s assets or liabilities, when everything returns to zero, everything needs to start again from the very beginning.
