Easy-money policy

It seems to me to be just ridiculous, dangerous, and immoral to force the central bank to water down the value of its currency.

At Haneda Airport

Watching big airplanes landing and taking off at a few minutes intervals at Haneda Airport I always wonder how it is possible so much petroleum keeps gushing that so many big airplanes keep flying.

Use of language in a kind of way

I have been forbidding myself to use language in a kind of way. This tabooing has surely been obstructing me to give full play to a kind of intellectual ability of mine. I hope that this self-control will someday bear some fruit.

Unknown unfavorables

At every interview I have I encounter an unfavorable condition to take photographs I have never experienced and fail in getting a perfect shoot.

Convenient and comfortable life

My everyday live has been made much more convenient and comfortable by the internet and the mobile telecommunication services than as a child I imagined it would be.

Relaxing

In order to prevent the full-size digital SLR camera Nikon D800 & the zoom lens Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G from overawing the interviewees when I have an interview and take photographs, I recently removed the grand hood from the 24-70mm f/2.8G.

Happy conversation

I can live happily if I have a conversation about once a year in which I can understand the person with whom I am talking and have myself understood by him or her.

Insomnia

Solitude seems to be able to be a cause of insomnia.

Unclear documents

I am often troubled by documents which seem to ask me to do something but the meaning of which I can't make out. When I can't make out what a document says I often haven't the slightest idea where, why, and how I can’t make out what it says so I can't even ask its author what it says.

My secret proud

One of the things of which I am secretly proud of is that I can write Web pages completely in conformity with HTML 5 and viewable by smartphone with no collapse.

Interviewed with an ex‐railway man

Today I went to Fuefuki City, Yamanashi Prefecture, to have an interview with an old couple who had sold two rental condominiums to a real estate agent, for an advertisement article of the agent company. The husband said he had worked for Japan National Railway until 27 years ago, and was making train schedules for a long time. I was very interested in his career as a railroad man, but unfortunately that was not the theme of the interview.

The shape of section

When we cut a thing with a knife, the shape of its section changes depending on from where and at what direction we cut the thing. I feel keenly that the same can be said of writing, especially when I write a case story for advertisement.

Sleepy

Last night I woke up at around 3 a.m. and could not get to sleep any more. Today in the daytime I was very sleepy and in danger of falling asleep while practicing martial arts.

Comments about the principles of my behaviors

Ninety nine comments out of hundred by other people about my principles of behavior sound to me wide of the mark.

Made a good job

Today I had an interview with employees of a company in Tokyo which developed and sold billing softwares for nursing care facilities, for an advertisement article of an IT tool. I think I made a good job, because I revealed by questions a value of the IT tool, of which the provider of the tool, or my client, had not been aware.

Social illusion

It is intellectually exciting to trace the process thorough which an illusion which is shared socially has been formed by a material contradiction of the human existence.

Inconvenient user service systems of convenient transport companies

I wonder why any of major transport companies in Japan provides such an inconvenient user service system while they provide such convenient transport services.

Songs to which I liked to listen in my junior high school days

When I happen to hear songs to which I liked to listen in my junior high school days I sometimes wonder at the fact that the identical person who lived as me 30 years ago now still lives as me.

A side effect of linguistic mastery

One of the side effects of a mastery of linguistic ability is the tendency to get a false idea that contradiction is not a universal but an exceptional phenomenon.

A trade-off

One of the trade-offs about taking photographs of interviewees is that the higher‐performance lighting and shooting devices we use to improve the quality of pictures, the more difficult it becomes to make the interviewees smile naturally.

Reading again A World History

Since a few days ago I am reading again William Hardy McNeill's A World History, translated into Japanese by MASUDA Yoshio and SASAKI Akio. I am enchanted by the grandeur and clarity of Mr. McNeill's view of history.

Pacifists

I love peace but I hate pacifism. Most of pacifists seem to me to be like those who abuse butchers eating meat.

Writer

I might have to be surprised by the fact that I who am so bad at writing am a writer by profession.

Concepts and words

When I write articles it often takes me as many hours to find out the concept which forms a link of my argument as to find out the word which expresses the concept not only briefly but also politely.

Full picture of jobs

As an interview article writer and an operation manual writer, I have learned that even in top‐ranking companies there are few employees even who can grasp and explain the full picture of their own jobs.

Went to Chiba

Today I visit a software company in Chiba to have an interview with its support staffs for the advertisement article of an IT company. Because a strong typhoon passed this morning, most of the railways in Kanto region suspended their services for hours, so it took more than 4 hours to go from my home to Chiba, which usually took about 2 hours.

Two types of advertisement

There are two types of advertisements which contrast with each other. While one type of advertisements excite consumers' interest by appealing to their reasonable thought, while the other type of advertisements excite consumers' interest by paralyzing their reasonable thought.

Border-oriented

It seems to me that those who have the habit of looking for the border about any statement where its truth and falsehood are reversed are much more intellectual than those who have the habit of looking for the statements which hold true under any circumstances.

Good and great

Recently the truth of the proverb “good is the enemy of great” comes home to me in two aspects. One is at the relation between the good way of standing and the great way of standing. The other is at the relation between Peter Keating, the good guy, and Howard Roark, the great guy, in the novel The Fountainhead. We should not forget that one of the reasons why good can't be great is that great is the enemy of good.

Reading fewer books

I read fewer books than a couple years ago. I have to reduce the time which I spend reading the net contents to spend more hours reading books.

Had a meeting

Today I had a meeting in Shibuya with my client about the interview which I have next week. One of the great things about being a freelance is that every business meeting that I have with my clients or partners is exciting. When I was an employee, every meeting in my workplace was nothing but boring.
