Home Runs and Striking Out

I once spoke with a lawyer who is a very active lawyer in New York in the past.

He was the kind of person who was putting together billions and billions of dollars worth of contracts, and he was dashing and very smart.

While we were talking about many things, I unexpectedly asked a simple question.

Q: How can I learn to make big deals as well as you do?

It seems too naive to recall now, but he thought about it for a moment before answering.

A: People who hit home runs in the majors, they are spectacular.

For him to hit home runs there, he needs to play a lot of games in the majors, and he needs to hit some home runs in the minors before that.

In addition, I'm hitting home runs during practice to compete in the minors, and I'm also swinging at home.

You have to swing a hundred thousand times, think about it, accumulate small results, and one day, if you're lucky, you'll hit for less than 30% in a major game.

Are you pretending to trade?

I try to trade at all times, when I buy apples, when I sign a parking contract.

I make small pretenses in my daily life.

It's a small pretense, so I will do it more and more without worrying about the consequences.

That's how you get the little tricks, and then little by little you get the big contracts.

In other words, a big deal is a huge accumulation of small deals, so try to train yourself with small bargains every day.


When I heard this, I thought it was as good as it gets.

To be able to explain ambiguous questions in an easy-to-understand manner by focusing on the main points and giving examples.

This must be another skill that has been cultivated in the trade.

Since then, I have been pretending to have something to learn.

If you can make even a small number of attempts during the day, you may get better at it when you forget about it.

project driven training

Mogic has developed in-house training, borrowing a bit of wisdom from various educational theories.

The most commonly used is the project study, which runs many large and small projects simultaneously.

Project learning is where several people get together, decide on a goal from a theme, work out various things within a time frame, produce results, and receive feedback from all over the place.

Once this is done, the work seems to become your own and teamwork comes naturally.

However, support roles for non-members of the project require considerable skill and the ability to observe, advise, anticipate, and persevere in order to "make sure the members get the results they need.

Are the members' hearts and minds broken as the project progresses to the halfway point, have they lost sight of the significance of the project, or are they feeling unfulfilled?

And since it does not make sense for members to be out of touch with their supporters, they must give the best advice at the right time.

Surprisingly, the sense of management in the support role can be very extended.

We have moved so many projects, and we are proud of ourselves that we have never had a setback until now.

Finally, from the afterword by the translator (Naohisa Ichimura) of John Dewey's book

Experience and Education
https://bookclub.kodansha.co.jp/product?item=0000151271

Dewey repeatedly points out how much more difficult it is for a teacher to discover the material in the student's experience than it is for him or her to follow the knowledge and methods already established in teaching a subject.

At the same time, it suggests viable ways to solve the "difficult problem," but also suggests that intellectual effort is required to trace and understand its logic.

Such intellectual efforts are also required of us teachers in the field of education.
