With the combination of a small number of people + software + servers and robots
We are promoting a new era of company management.
We hope to share part of this process with you in this corner.

Regular internal meetings are routine and not very memorable.
But if you look at today's regular practice from three years into the future, you will find it very valuable.
With that in mind, I made live recordings of meetings here and there.
If you join online, the audio is automatically transcribed for your convenience.
Here is such a transcription from a regular Branding.
As usual on a certain day in September, we start at 1:30 p.m.
13:37:05 Yes, okay then. Shall we start? Does it look okay?
13:37:13 Okay, we will begin.
13:37:17 Um, yes, oh, I see. I have to share the screen. Hmmm, this is it.
13:37:32 Are you seeing this?
13:37:37 Okay. So we'll start passing by that guy too? 13:37:38 Yes.
13:37:44 Um, so the audio content is perfect. We're going to record it for now, yes.
14:04:20 Shall we go to the next display on the first floor then?
14:04:27 Okay. Yes, I think so.
14:04:27 Well, Halloween is fast approaching, and we are continuing to make preparations, but can you send videos to chat, or not?
14:04:38 Yes, and it depends on the weight. If it is short, you can send it.
14:04:48 You can try sending it anyway.
14:04:43 About the first floor, this is it for now.
14:04:56 Ah. Neon sign.
14:04:56 Tested the neon sign thing a little bit yesterday.
14:05:00 Ah. This is the one I tried to do before.
14:05:03 Eh, I can't see it. How am I supposed to do this?
14:05:06 No, no, no, I sent it to chat.
14:05:10 Ha ha ha ha ha.
14:05:11 Oh, really.
14:05:11 It's true. It's true.
14:05:14 What's this?
14:05:09 Wow. Wow. Wow. I may have changed a little bit for sure.
14:05:15 Hahahaha. No, I've changed quite a bit.
It's a problem. Computers, like humans, cover up inaudible words with laughter.

When making decisions in a company, we are inevitably concerned about whether we are making choices because we want to or because we have to.
When considering the future, we have several possibilities, but whether we have narrowed them down to 10 options or only 2 options from the beginning is a very different starting point from which to make a decision.
Even if we discount the grandiose catchphrase, "The future is infinite," the number of options should swing toward the many, so it is disconcerting when there are so few options.
If we apply this somewhat aggressively to job hunting, it is similar to the fact that in April of one's junior year of college, one can choose from a wide range of industries, but in April of one's senior year of college, one must carefully narrow down the industries and companies to choose from.
If you find it difficult to move to a different company in the same industry after 5 years of work, and even more difficult after 10 years, the composition is the same.
It seems that the environment that surrounds us in the years that are slowly passing us by is slowly and chemically reacting to and narrowing the world that seems to be automatically possible.
In this situation, I have to assume that this is the only option.
If it is positive, that is fine, but if it suddenly lowers my eyes, I am concerned.
That said, it's almost impossible to remove a sinking assumption just before you make a decision.
So this time around, I'm going to go back a long way and try to do something about it.
You can either constantly strive to have 10 or more options, or you can guide them along the way so that the two that look good can remain as options.
I am still not sure what the future holds, even though I have been racking my brains for a long time, but I am going to take the opportunity to go as far as I can think.

As the admonition to watch out for typhoons for 220 days counting from Risshun (the first day of spring), typhoons came with a vengeance.
Perhaps it is because I have spent the Chou-you-no-Sekku without seeing chrysanthemums, but I started preparing for the far-off shore early.
Once we take a break from the cool mornings and evenings, Halloween will be here in no time.
Yes, you may say I am getting ahead of myself, but the end of the year is in sight.
The annual New Year's calendar project, New Year's greeting card project, and New Year's greeting app project are all on fire.

I rarely make plans, but I just keep track of them.
The list of what I have been doing each month since starting the business is the longest, and the rest of the list is facts for each event that occurred.
What was lucky, what got me into trouble, what went unexpectedly well, what unexpectedly went wrong, what I gathered materials and made decisions, what I talked about and realized, what was trial and error in service, what members were struggling with, what my assumptions were blind spots.
If you look at the records every three months or so, you will have an essay vaguely addressed to yourself.
Connecting events, creating diagrams, adding explanations, and layering stories.
When the stories unexpectedly resonate with you, you will feel freshly inspired, as if you are reading an epic poem that has been passed down through the ages.
