Ability to grasp the concept of risk

Sometime I think that the mind which can grasp the concept of risk may as much differ from that which cannot grasp it as the vertebrate animal differs from the invertebrate from the point of view of evolution.

Bad style and poor skill

I find it very difficult to write about what I like too much. Attachment to a subject makes me intolerant of my bad style and poor skill in writing about it.

How can I avoid irritating impatient interviewees?

I would like to know how to avoid irritating impatient interviewees by other means than quickening the tempo of questioning.

Labors and laborers

Thinking more highly of brain labors than muscular labors is not the same thing as thinking more highly of brain laborers than muscular laborers. The labors which muscular laborers do contain brain labors. I think Ayn Rand is misunderstood in this respect too.

Volume and tempo

I got informed about the person I would interview next week. The client said he was so impatient, and was anxious about my weak voice and slow tempo with which I usually interviewed. I will have to do my best not to irritate the impatient interviewee.

Teapot and earwax

A few months ago I bought a teapot, and since then I have made it a habit to take a rest making and drinking a cup of green tea. Till then I had made it a habit to take a rest cleaning my ears with an ear pick. Since I bought a teapot, earwax tends to collect in my ears.

Package of scissors

I bought a pair of scissors because I had something to cut promptly while going out and I was surprised to find that the package of the scissors needed scissors to be opened.

An hour sleep

Having stayed up all night the night before last, I woke up just after sleeping an hour and could not sleep again last night.

Joyful essays

I am bad at writing joyful essays. If I write an essay intending to amuse readers, the result should be the opposite. All I can do is to write intelligible essays.

Second‐rate

It is disappointing to face the fact my work is not first‐ but second‐rate.

Materialization

Yesterday I wrote that I was recently often offered works that require much creativity. But I rethought. I cannot create what the customer wants. I can be creative only of the means by which I materialize what the customer wants.

Offered one after another

Although I have never regarded myself as creative person, recently I am offered works one after another that require much creativity.

Creator

For creators it is difficult to create what the creator himself cannot regard as great. So even when it is instructed in detail what he should create, he tend to create not what the client regards as great but what he himself regard as great.

The real autumn has come

It got very cool. The real autumn has come. I am making I am making much progress with my works.

Shameful

It is my recent discovery that while seeing others behaving shamefully some people decide not to behave similarly other people decide to behave similarly.

Architect

Today I heard great stories from a great architect. I was very impressed.

Well received

This week I wrote a few articles for my hobby. Fortunately, there were a few people who eagerly admired my work.

Time slows

Time is said to be felt to go faster as one grows older. But recently I feel time goes slower than last year. The beginning of this year is just like a few years ago.

Schedule

My schedule in the latter half of this September is getting tighter and tighter.

Forecast

As a home work of an English training course, I was told to forecast the world situation 7 years from now. I expect world trade liberalization to be progressed more than now.

One after another

Things I want to do emerge one after another. I won't be bored till I die.

7 years from now

As a home work of an English training course, I was asked what I think I will be doing in the summer of 2020 when the Olympics is held in Tokyo, Japan. That is a great question. The opening ceremony of the Olympic Games held in my own country in 7 years is less difficult to imagine than things general in 7 years.  With what feeling do I want to watch the opening ceremony of The 2nd Tokyo Olympic? As a 49-years-old man, what should I do in order to watch the ceremony with the feeling? By asking these questions to myself, surely I can live much better 7 years from now.

Flesh‐eating and grass‐eating

Today I noticed a matter of course. Being a flesh‐eating animal means that it preys on living things which move about for themselves. Being a grass‐eating animal means that it preys on living things which don't move about for themselves. Predation of living things which move about and that of living things which don't move about require different kind of usage of brain. We tend to fail to notice the fact because we eat meat which was stopped moving. If we abstain from catching things which move about, our brain should get weak.

Shocked

Of all the homeworks set in the English learning course I am taking, the most depressing was that in which I was told to listen to the trailer of an old movie and write a sales message in Japanese in time to the trailer. I was shocked because I could hardly catch what was said in the trailer in English. I thought I could catch only narrations made for English-as-a-second-language learners.

Starlit sky

I have never seen as breathtakingly beautiful a starlit sky as that I saw at the Shiretoko Pass when I was seventeen years old. I want to see a starlit sky more beautiful than that before I die.

Reaction to errors

For example if someone says "The capital of United States of America is New York" we can reply either "It is Washington, D.C." or "You are ignorant." I would like to  avoid replying by the latter way.

Purpose

The purpose for which we regard ourselves to be saying or doing something often differs from that for which other people regard us to be saying or doing it. In order to keep aware of our real intention of our own utterance and action, it is important to keep paying attention to the gap between them.

Lucky

One of the luckiest things in my life is that I met many great teachers and have been taught by them. I owe it to those great teachers that I still keep learning many things and growing.

Had a little aversion to myself

Today I undertook production of an interview article requested by a company the order by which I had decided not to accept again. I had a little aversion to myself.

Talked with an Ayn Rand fan about the movie "Fountainhead" over 10 hours

Today I met a member of Tokyo Ayn Rand Reader's Meeting at Shyonandai, Fujisawa-city, and talked about the movie "Fountainhead" from 1:30 p.m. to 11 40 p.m. I heard very deep story and analysis about the movie "Fountainhead" and movies as a whole.
