Vol.23 能力を未来進行形でとらえる





Vol.23 Understand abilities will improve

  Mr. Kazuo Inamori (Founder of Kyocera and KDDI as well as Honorary Chairman of JAL) is saying that when setting a new goal, dare to set it more than your ability. Then think of ways to improve your ability until you can achieve that goal.

  This is one of Mr. Inamori’s most important teachings, and this idea has supported Kyocera’s rapid growth thanks to his leadership. People are basically afraid of changes, so they tend to avoid challenges and become conservative. However, in the business world, maintaining the status quo means a step back, and if you do not evolve your abilities every day, you cannot survive the severe competitions. Only by challenging something new, one’s ability will improve indefinitely. First of all, you need to believe in your potential as much as you can. By making the utmost efforts from there, you can find our way.

  I know you’re always too busy, but if you want to work on something big, it’s better to find a more efficient way to change your current work style. If you’re worried about taking on something too big, you might start with something small instead. It’s never too late to work on something new, but you should start it right now. Then you’ll get closer to your goal gradually on a trial-and-error basis. Isn’t it exciting to design your life on the assumption that your ability will continue to grow?
