- Building my online businesses and making connections to businesses in Japan that help foreigners with their life and work here.
- Working with my clients to help their businesses help more people.
- Meeting other entrepreneurs around the world to collaborate with.
- “The Smart Guide to Teaching English in Japan” – the paperback of my book has just been released worldwide, and I’m really happy to be able to reach more people with this work.
I really like Simon’s message of working on things that inform your “why” – your mission in life. I’ve been discovering and rediscovering this since I watched Simon’s TED talk on the same subject, but only when I took this course and really delved into the topic deeply did I figure out how this would work for me, and before finishing I already have a much clearer vision in my head of why I’m doing what I’m doing.
I’ve been really lax on my Japanese study for the past few years because I felt like I didn’t need it. Now I’m starting a school here in Tokyo, and I realise that I need Japanese now, and it needs to be much much better. I’m getting back into study, pushing myself to learn a lot more and improve my skills so I can confidently speak.
No use beating myself up about not studying harder theser past few years. The best time to start was five years ago, but the second best time to start is right now.
- ‘The War of Art‘ by Steven Pressfield
What an amazing book. This is all about overcoming Resistance (that which stops you from doing your work) and it has really helped me to stop procrastinating.
- ‘Adults in the Room: My Battle With Europe’s Deep Establishment‘ by Yanis Varoufakis
I’ve only just started this book, but I really want to know why the crisis happened in Greece and why Europe seemed so intent on a policy that clearly didn’t help the Greek people, and put them further into a debt spiral, but having to give most of their bailout money to German and French banks to protect the Euro. I always thought the Euro was a bad idea, which I wrote about for my politics coursework at A level ten years ago.
