[Reading] The Little Entrepreneur

引越し前のブログには今もたくさんのアクセスがあるんですけど、海外の人も多いんですね。ほとんどはアニメカテゴリへのアクセスなんですが、たまに一般の記事にもアクセスしていく人がいます。そんな記事の中で、なぜかこの記事へのアクセスが多いんですよね。

ページタイトル:【読書】小さな起業家
2008年01月14日

アメリカイスラエルからのアクセスが多いです。この本の著者の方がイスラエル人っていうこともあるんでしょうけど。それで、なぜか皆さんweb翻訳を試みているようなんですね。そこでおいらもgoogleでこのページを翻訳してみたんですが、

メタメタでしたw (ノ∀`)

ほら、おいらのブログって、ほとんどの記事が完全口語体じゃん?w
機械翻訳は無理なんだって(笑)

しかし、せっかく遠いところを来ていただいたのにあの翻訳はあんまりだなあと思ったので、今日はちょっと頑張って英訳してみました。ちゃんとした英語になっているか、あまり自信はありませんが。

Today is Monday on January 14, 2008.
It is Coming-of-Age Day. (Seijin no hi)

Entrepreneur.
I didn't have a particular reason to read this book.
I do not think becoming independent soon, but I might have to step into the direction living for myself without depending on the company organization in future.

When I was younger, it was so hard for me to make up good human relationship with somebody eles because of LD.
Having fallen behind other people who are in same generation in getting social skills, it was difficult for me to work in the office itself.
Now I can manage to live, but unfortunately, I have been forced to put up with economical unstableness led by that delay.
I'm afraid that it would be impossible for me to get married much less have a child as far as I live in Japan.
That is the reasons why I am anxious about future.

Furthermore, Japanese social security system lacks reliability these days.
Even though reaching to the age, we can't be paid a pension.
I must continue to work for the rest of life.
I'm always keeping such a thing in my mind.

So, what can I do?
I'm afraid that the manual labor, such like a construction for telecommunication system which I engaged in several years before, will be getting difficult nowadays.
I need to attempt to get more intellectual work.
Although thinking some choices now, I won't write here.

By the way, the book which I read last time.

The Little Entrepreneur - Happiness I find in my memories
Author: David Levi
Translator: Atsunori Asao
BUNKA-SHA co., Ltd. 2007

Though this is on the business category in the bookstore, this book doesn't simply include the know-how of the business.
(Intentionally, I selected such a book. ^o^ )

There are some small stories in this book the author has gotten inspiration from his experience in childhood.
He extract the lessons of life from the experience, for example, of opening lot shop in the elementary school or doing detective play.
I think this is interesting though I found a few parts of something like sophistry and contradiction.
Because of larger characters and colorful illustrations, this book looks like a picture book rather than the books for business.

優れた商品やサービスの提供を約束することでビジネスの可能性は広がるが、それはその商品が実際に存在し、誠実で信頼性の高いサービスが実際に行われることが前提となる。そうでなければただの詐欺行為であって、遅かれ早かれ非難を受けることになる。

(The possibility of the business will extend by promising to provide a superior article and service.
However, there should be the premise which needs the reality of the products' existence and of being executed high reliable service.
Otherwise it is an only fraud, and sooner or later you must be accused of it.)

Quoted by "MY FIRST RACKETEERING EXPERIENCE"

This is only natural thing, but I'm afraid it may be a difficult to be natural for today's Japanese people.
The stories written down in this book seem extremely natural and basic.
However, I think the author included a big message in this book indirectly by writing such a natural thing with a picture book style.
Is it too penetrative view ?  (^_^)

Same as the "A law of the progress" I wrote the previous blog article, it seems that the attachment to what somebody can do well may be one key of success.
And I think we need looking back on a past, too.
It is not negative action but positive. I have heard it will fix a memories and an arts.

I would like to write blog articles with the memories of my old days again. I might get some good "lesson of the life". (^o^)
