We are moving forward with a new era of company management.
I hope to share some of that process with you in this section.

Double Issue Interference and Beyond

It is known from experiments with double task interference that a person cannot do two things at the same time.

One process interferes with another, resulting in mistakes and delays.

It would be extremely difficult to answer one phone call while creating a document and answering another.

Unfortunately, however, a company is a place where a variety of jobs come in one after another.

It would be nice if they were ordered one by one, but most of the time, if you are doing something, something else interrupts.

I was thinking of ideas for Project A, I was being consulted on the progress of Project C, I was told to get a medical checkup by the end of the month, and I had a lot of emails and chats after the meeting.

Even if you prioritize at this point, it may change half a day later.

So what should we do?

A few ideas come to mind.

Some of the processes will be easy to interfere with and some will not, so the hard-to-interfere with each other will be done at the same time.

If you set priorities too tightly, you will be vulnerable to change, so set loose priorities.

If I focus with gusto, I get frustrated when something else interrupts, so I focus gently.

I have no idea which one is better, but I do know that, generally speaking, modern companies are busy heads.

become sick and tired with grass falling from the tips of one's eyes

With changeable skies, we have entered the 72-weather season of "kusaretaru kusa-hotaru naru" (fireflies will turn to rotten grass).

It is an expression of the way fireflies flutter away from steaming dead grass, but you don't see them in the city as a matter of course.

Remembering the fireflies that glow dully and disappear along the dark footpath between rice paddies, I began to think about how I would like to create such a web service someday.

Clear lighting, sparkling neon, buttons that shut down when pressed, and clearly organized information.

That's all well and good, but I would like to create an experience that isn't.

The ability to give up well is more important than you might think

I wrote a program for the first time in a while to play a prank using electronic circuits and the IoT, ran it for a while, and stopped halfway through.

The goal is to surprise people rather than to make them perform advanced operations, so we just create them while combining sources from here and there.

What I realized when I stopped halfway through was that I had a better idea of the difficulty of what I was working on and the amount of time I would have to worry about it than I had in the past right before I stopped.

Although the actual measurement cannot be obtained without actually doing it, I was not too far off from my expectation when I checked the similar sources later as an answer to the question.

You can spend plenty of time without worrying about time, or you can stop halfway through.

Such a decision will be necessary when learning something unknown to you.

This style of learning, also known as exploratory learning, emphasizes persistence, but I think the ability to give up is more important than you might think.
