**To begin, I won’t suggest to read today’s journal because it must be too long to read. Furthermore, there is no one which you need to receive.
Even though I had tried to keep one thing in my notion database, I made a decision to keep it on this website. The thing is “who are you?, what keeps me alive, happy, growing and moving?” The reason why I’ll try to keep it on this website is I want people who read this essay to review and tell me something, because you might be someone who knows me well. Moreover, no one must read a journal like this. But, help me, guys all over the world!
Two months have gone since coming to Singapore and starting learning English. This staying has given me a opportunity to review my own values, role and skills, because anyone, who are my classmate/now roommate and met outside the school, are so impressive for me. At that time when I hear about some interesting things from them, I often tried to stare my own things by myself; “who I am, what keeps me alive, happy, growing and moving?”. And they always give me a lot of tips about working. Particularly, the roommate is so cool man. There are lots of things which I learn from him. I tend to talk with not only some of them but also another friends who met in Japan between November 2022 to January 2023(here). In short, I have had a lots of friends/mentors and been spending a good time to review my own things.
I regularly review that when I come across a critical happening or problem. And, The time is coming now. I as always tried to learn my own things by myself with some questions.
What is important for me(values, missions and roles of group)?
- Being in a state of constant growth (values)
- Taking new information continuously and making decisions quickly (values + my working role)
- Supporting people who want to start or create something new (values + mission for society)
That’s why I need to be in new territory like a venture company, new project and so on. Furthermore, I also should be in tough environment because if absolute guarantees exist around me, I definitely tend to be a lazy man despite of an immature person and career. For growing more and more, I need the environment.
Moreover, someone who I like and want to be next to have an upward heart and huge visions such as creator, someone who are belong in new projects. I prefer supporting them to creating something or expanding some vision, so supporting people like that is my mission for society, I think. At same time, that makes me happy.
What is good at?
- Gathering information(effective for working)
- Analyzing(effective for working)
- Putting things together in order to communicate(effective for working)
- Being fair to everyone regardless of national origin, gender, or creed(character)
- Acting quickly(character)
In addition to these, I have IT/Web skills. And now, I’m going to get a new specific; English. If you could obtain English skills, you would have more opportunities to obtain new information than you do now. Actually, 2.1% of the articles on the Web are in Japanese, while more than 60% are written in English. Furthermore, some resource of information that exists in the world, regardless of articles, is in English. For instance, some technical specifications like AWS and Salesforces, are written instructions in more detail than that in Japanese. I need to learn English to get more information from resources which is in the world. This is why I chose English as a skill to develop “what I am good at” and why I am learning English now. If it had been Chinese, I would have chosen Chinese.
Speaking of Analyzing, I’m able to create a document or format to analyze with GAS/VBA from scratch. It’s one of my strong points because most engineers can’t create a document or an analyzing tool with these program languages despite of many demands.
For all my dynamism, I tend to lack planning. For instance, I have not planned my career well enough. If I had fully incorporated “making achievements” into my career plan, there were more other ways to do things at my career so far. As a result, I don’t have any significant accomplishments now, I think. I have an experience to be only in a business develop phase. To be honest, I regret. I had had to experience not only the phase but also a business growth phase.
However, this is just an individual situation. If I’m belong in some teams, I’m able to call off the problem. As you know, the plan which someone make for a project need to review from a manager or a leader. No matter how lacking plans appear, we’re able to review whether it’s possible to apply the project or not. Moreover, I need to be part of an organization to breakup my weakness. I don’t also force myself to do business as an individual.
Do you want to work abroad, in Southeast-Asia?
The answer is ‘Yes’. In a region where the population is increasing, there must be many people who want to take on new challenges.
—->>>>There are many opportunities to accomplish my mission.
Result-oriented and tough environment must fit my values better than the environment in Japan where employment is protected.
—->>>> Values that want to constantly grow. I want to compete on the same level as them.
1.No four seasons
—->>>>This leads to stability in physical condition.
2.One hour time difference from Japan
Is it best to change jobs overseas now?
■Reasons for thinking so
Living in Singapore definitely makes job hunting easier. If I go back to Japan, it won’t be easy to do that. I’m in a situation where I’m getting stimulated. It’s a hot situation.
■I don’t think so.
My English is not at the level of “business and executive level” now. I am not a new/second-time graduate, so my track record is very important. I am only 25 years old. If I want to do it, I can get a work-holiday VISA at the age of 29 and take on the challenge without Singapore. There are definitely a lot of things that could become achievements at my current company and good boss and colleagues, many things that make sense to me.
Now, what to do… I’ve been gathering all kinds of information, talking to recruitment agents, and listening to people around me, and I’m scratching my head…
What to do about the “Year of the Brake” according to a divination.
