Meaning of the Idiom
xiao xin yi yi（to be careful and discreet）
During the Song Dynasty, there was a very studious man named Jia Huangzhong, who had studied with his father since he was five years old.
Jia Huangzhong was a clean and upright official, and when he was the governor of Xuanzhou. One year, there was a famine in Xuanzhou, and many people starved to death. Jia Huangzhong used his own rice to cook and saved thousands of people.
However, Jia Huangzhong was too serious and cautious in his work, so that when he encountered a crisis, he could not make a decision immediately.
The emperor of the Song Dynasty admonished him: “It is a little prudent to do things carefully, but if you go too far, you will lose your original intention.”
