I decided to record our daily stuff while praying for Fukushima.
Those college students who came here for internship worked really great. The foundation of the stone oven is almost complete (Will update photos later!) , and the wall paint is also proceeding pretty speedy. With those human resource, we can proceed to visualize new KAIYU everyday which makes me happy.
Last night after dinner, I got a chance to speak with students as a speaker. While I was thinking about what to talk, I also set two goals. - Let those students also talk, instead of me just talking. - Also get at least one person who wants to talk to me more.
And what to talk.. I remember one quiz which I was told in a presentation training - "What is the most important thing when you do presentation?"
A. The speaker B. The contents C. The audience.
The answer was C. Of course all three are important but if you want to make an impressive speech, you have to know the audience, what they would like to hear, what kind of things they are interested in, otherwise you cannot provide interesting information to them.
I don't know anything about real college students. So I rather want to know who they are. What they like, what is the concern etc. In order to get to know them, I first ask lots of questions to them, like interviews :).
And the only thing I want to tell them was, after a decade, a lots of things will change.
When I graduate the University, the popular company/industory was stock brokerage, consultant, mass-media, advertising. And as you know, within the last decade, Lehman Shock was happened, the news paper is almost dying, and Apple deleted "computer" from it's name.
Thus, I want to tell them that we cannot really foresee the future. No one can really tell our future, that's why it's ridiculous to decide something which you cannot enjoy or sacrifice "Now".
Some of you may realize this,, I take this idea from Steve Job's speech to Standford students - "About connecting the dots".
I hope their heart received my message.
Tonight, everyone hold hands each other and we pray for people wwho died from this earthquake, who is enduring this hardship at stricken area, who is rescuing people, and fighting to control nuclear plants. Thank you that we are safe in here and can live. We have to act whatever we can.
