With a combination of a small number of people + software + servers and robots
We are moving forward with a new era of company management.
I hope to share some of that process with you in this section.

I went to a small sailboat training course over the weekend and my back was stiff, probably because I sat on a hard deck and chair for a long time.
There are many terms to learn and many actions to perform, so my head is full of ideas.
To begin with, a sailboat has two sails, and the rudder (tiller) is operated with one hand by adding or subtracting a sheet (rope) in conjunction with the sails.
The weather changes from moment to moment, the wind swings in increments, and you have to feel the waves ahead of you.
When I operate, there are so many elements that I can't change well and I can't always get into the flow.
When you get used to it a little bit and suddenly it fits well, it's like riding the wind and it becomes fun.
This is a sense of oneness with nature that is not found in boats that are powered by electricity.
In this way, I think it is similar to starting a business in that you are groping and feeling and changing.
The faint voice of a client, the flutter of a new market, vanishing money, a desperate effort to hang on.
Even if you think you have to respond well to this or that, it usually doesn't work.
We just have to seek the moment when we can ride the wind as we feel it.
We began creating subsidiaries several years ago because we wanted the members we worked with to have that kind of experience.
It is a feeling that cannot be experienced by watching from afar or riding in a boat that is being piloted by someone else.
We are still rowing out on our own little yacht and struggling to fit everything in.
We are looking forward even if it rains hard or the waves are high, so we are sure that we will catch the wind successfully someday.
