Today let me write my blog in English. Because I met an interesting guy and we spoke in English.
He is one of students in my Jiu-jitsu Dojo. He is originally from France and he has been many places, Paris, NY, Boston, Singapore... He is currently living in Kagawa-ken (Udon noodles place I love) with his wife and her grandmother, and he regularly comes to Tokyo for Jiu-jitsu training. He runs his own business globally, M&A business, I am not really sure of that sector, but it sounds he has been very successful with it.
He told me a good thing about living in Kagawa is that living in a country side is simple, and since it is simple he can learn core things on Japan easily. This is the way he has used for learning new things.
He also advised me about staring a new business. There might be a good idea for a new business, but you should wait before you start it fully until you are really sure you really like it and you really want to do it. Without having that feeling, it maybe a wrong decision as you will face so many things after you actually start it. Yes, I agreed with him.
We talked about the idea of applying how to learn martial arts to business. In martial arts, you learn techniques in a lesson but in reality you cannot just use it at once. That is why you need to do repetitive drills and sparring in order to master the technique.
It would be the same with business. You must know where you are, what you are doing, think about what it would be. So you can start things but you need to see and think how it goes before you actually commit it. I would like to take this idea.
Well, anyway, it was fun to talk about hobby, martial arts, and new business I might start. I really appreciate encounters with people who give me good ideas.
