breaker fails and one's bones sink deeply into one's body

When I first started my business, I used to drop breakers in one of the apartments I rented.

If you turn on the air conditioner, put 4 computers on the floor, and boil water, it will go down quickly.

Falling, falling, falling too many times a day! I was so mad that I started learning electrical engineering.

I fantasized about eventually increasing the amperage, putting a server there, and turning half the room into a data center, but I soon realized it was a foolhardy scheme.

If you think about it, it is obvious, and lives are at stake.

Because you can be in immediate danger or you can be in gradual danger.

If electricity leaks, it can cause an electric shock, and if the resistance increases with age, sparks can fly.

Thanks to the breakers dropping too much back then, I now know my way around electricity: distribution boards, power boards, RCDs, breakers, grounding, VVF cables, crimping pliers, and joint boxes.

When starting something, momentum is important.

It is equally important to understand the background and to inspect and maintain it, without wanting to be numb to it anymore.

Security starts with education

We have received third-party ISMS certification for the handling of our information assets.

I'll leave the details to the press release.

We had formed our own risk audit committee several years ago to check this and that, but we decided that this would be difficult to communicate externally, so we started the committee in April of this year.

Even though LearnO Services is celebrating its 10th anniversary and is in the midst of rebranding its services, we were all able to work together to maintain the service.

Since we are involved in the educational IT business, we will continue to take all possible educational measures to ensure information security so as not to be in the dark under the lamp.

Ask Money Literacy

It seems that everywhere in the world, people are uncertain about how to handle money, and people interviewed for an international documentary program said, "Paycheck to paycheck, because this country (despite being a developed country) doesn't teach money literacy at all. (People interviewed for an international documentary program said, "Paycheck to paycheck, because this country (despite being a developed country) doesn't teach money literacy at all.

I have been hearing more and more about financial planning in Japan, but I suddenly became concerned that I may not have actually had a firm grasp of what money literacy means.

So what is money literacy to those around you? I asked them.

I think it's important to keep track of all the money coming in and going out, as well as the money remaining on hand. People don't see a breakdown of the taxes deducted from their paychecks.

It's the ability to think about what it means when you spend money. Money is something that you can spend as soon as you feel you want it. It's whether or not you can think about what it will be useful for and how much and when before you buy it.

'You have to understand early on the three major expenses of life. Education, housing, and retirement require a long time to prepare. You have to have time on your side."

"It's whether you can color the money yourself. The same 100,000 yen can be 100,000 in savings, or 50,000 for my future skills plus 30,000 for gifts to those around me plus 20,000 for investments, I'm free to do whatever I want."

The results were surprisingly staggering.

The fact that the answers are so varied probably means that they are so difficult.

Since it is a type of talk that is as invisible and undefinable as health, happiness, and joie de vivre, it seems to me that it would be a good idea to at least spend some time discussing it with others to gain a better understanding of it.

Chord progressions you don't know yet

I am creating an accordion chord progression for a company event.

I started a week ago out of necessity and was able to do a little.

As I was doing this, I realized that it had become much easier to start something I didn't know compared to the past.

You can order an instrument with a click of a button, quickly search for sheet music online, watch a different video if you don't understand it, inquire if you have trouble, upload the video if it works, and connect with someone's comment.

In the past, I would look for a music store in the next town, go there and find that it was closed, go there the next day and find that what I wanted was out of stock, order it and find that it was a little different from what I imagined, practice in front of limited sheet music and get stumped.

So, the time has come for a good day to come up with a good idea.

That said, it is unfortunate that it is not always possible to master one new thing after another.

Just as the time and effort required to get started has been shortened, the internal barriers come one after another without mercy.

It's like being interested, starting to do it, getting confused, getting bored, accomplishing a little, but not achieving anything noteworthy, being disappointed by someone who is good at it, and preparing many plausible excuses to forget about it in frustration, before realizing what to do after all.

It seems that no matter how much the environment improves, in the end we still have to find our unknown selves and expose that progression in a faltering manner.
