今日は東京8期始動、明日は横浜始動

これまで(先週修了し就活が始まったばかりの7期を除くと)、8割の就職率である東京都からの委託事業「発達障害者向けのIT職業訓練」の8期がスタート。初日はとにかく大変。Kaienのフィロソフィーを骨の髄まで感じてもらった。明日以降は若干スローになるので楽しんでいただきたい。

一方明日は横浜市から受託した事業が本格スタート。利用者がはじめてオフィスを訪れる。こちらも就労支援事業。上手に方向性を示せればと思う。(※ただしこちらは公募をしていないので、Kaienが受託する行政からのジョブトレーニングに参加されたい方は東京都の訓練をご検討ください。東京都以外の方も参加されていて、今回は遠く中国地方からの参加者もいる)

最後に、今日はやっぱりSteve Jobs。死をもって生を定義する、宗教が薄れた現代では珍しいタイプの人だったと思う。小さいなりにもKaienという会社を経営していると、彼の言葉にはやっぱり惹かれる。好きな言葉は以下のとおり。2つ目は僕も会社を作ってから実践していること。毎朝最後の日だと思うと思考がとてもクリアになる。

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]
“When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]
“Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works. The design of the Mac wasn’t what it looked like, although that was part of it. Primarily, it was how it worked. To design something really well, you have to get it. You have to really grok what it’s all about. It takes a passionate commitment to really thoroughly understand something, chew it up, not just quickly swallow it. Most people don’t take the time to do that.
“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.
“Unfortunately, that’s too rare a commodity. A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. [Wired, February 1996]
