Test for seriousness.
When you buy something, are you buying it for who you used to be or for the person you want to become?
Finally, now the world’s most popular keyboard has come to my home. Because I have recently begun playing the piano for the first time in 30 years.
As the interior of my flat is white, I thought that I wanted to buy a white one, but my English teacher told me that a black keyboard would be more serious! And I was puzzled. My English teacher said, “Let the universe help you!”.
The next day, Hikaru Utada’s Instagram came up on my timeline, I saw three black keyboards in her room. “Wow! The professionals have a black one!” As soon as I saw that, I felt like the energy in the room suddenly changed somehow. Then I realized that I was simply trying to decide, based on the interior of the room.
And I’m in the mood to get more serious about my output! I have been presenting some work every day, but I was concerned that it was in cohesive and disorganized. I’m still alive, but I thought I should have a “retrospective” exhibition. Might be good for a new incarnation!
First of all, I organized my five YouTube channels: the 1D1U Community channel had 374 videos stored on it. In my business, this is why I have many repeaters. In other words, I felt that by opening it up to the public, it had the potential to reach even more people who needed it. To make it more visible, I decided to focus on two channels, my private YouTube channel and my YouTube channel as a Life Coach.
The next thing I came up with was to make the 90 episodes of the listening skills of the newsletter into a teaching resource. This was also limited to the readers of my newsletter, so it was about to go into storage unless I put it out. Finally, I opened Word and started putting it together. Once this is completed, I will be able to move on to the Silky Feedback book.
So that’s how I spent the week, sorting out the past and going back to my roots. Then I got a sign that the flow had changed.
I received an email from a platform called Medium, where the English version of ”Yomusapuri” has been posted since last June, with the subject line “Your audience is growing.” That’s how I knew that people other than Japanese people were reading it. My little dream had come true.
I can’t believe the keyboard was testing my seriousness! Tools change people.
