Right now, I’m disposing anything. An old notebook 30 years ago has appeared. It’s a certain person’s story that I can respect. The story was written by Shuzaburo Kagiyama, who was called the “God of cleaning.”
In addition, Konosuke Matsushita, the god of management, said, “I want you to work hard every day. I want you to get up early in the morning and do cleaning up than learning theory.” Cleaning was recommended. “A ounce of experience is better than a ton of theory.” The words of John Dewey’s pioneer include the importance of experience.
After hearing the story of Konosuke Matsushita, five students quitted. They could not understand the meaning to get up early in the morning and do cleaning. The 100-kilometer walking and early morning marathon tradition wasn’t just a matter of theory, it was about building human power, and the basics required matter was a cleaning that anyone could do. “If you’ve never eaten while crying you don’t know what life tastes like.” says Goethe. Perhaps he wanted that the future leaders understand this true meaning, especially to understand your heart and your life.
The original of Goethe below
Wer nie sein Brot mit Tränen aß,
Wer nie die kummervollen Nächte
Auf seinem Bette weinend saß,
Der kennt euch nicht, ihr himmlischen Mächte.
When Konosuke Matsushita met a student, he asked if you was cleaning. When asked why cleaning is done to improve Japan, “Whatever you do, you have to change yourself. Certainly we have to do the only thing you can do is start by improving yourself to improve Japan.” It was thought that our surroundings would change, influenced by our changing self.
Cleaning can be done if we have two motivations. Motivation and brooms. Even simple things like cleaning will change people if we can do it. It is important to keep doing it.” He says many times that it is important to work hard every day and keep doing mediocre things to enhance oneself.
Marie Curie had tried 5677 times to make rajums discovery. Our biggest flaw is to give up immediately and the best way to succeed is to try again. Keep doing until we achieve it.
One of the other people who influenced me is Shuzaburo Kagiyama, founder of Yellow Hat. He is also known for his way of postcard and the way of toilet cleaning, so I cleaned it with him many times. Mr. Kagiyama continued encouraging, “Continuously doing the mediocre things anyone can do will make the absolute difference between human beings.” Absolute difference is the difference that cannot be compared with others.
Kyoto culture will also transmit the absolute difference of the town that has been transmitting as an antenna of Japanese culture.
