11.Productivity in a dramatic manner

I made a four days tour to give lessons in some significant cities in Japan. Kicking off with one on HRM in Sapporo, I then encountered with audience from local companies in Nagoya. Having enjoyed myself there with my colleagues, I left for Osaka where I met potential colleague for digital marketing.

Since there is no direct air flight from Osaka to the Yokohama region, I then moved to Tokyo and stayed there one night. Getting up very early in the morning with a fantastic view of the harbor in Tokyo bay, I flew to Sendai and held meetings with those who are company executives and want to do something new for the future.

Giving them advices on how to move forward really made me lots of fun, and our company successfully held the second round of locally specialized seminar for CEO's and entrepreneurs in the city. Finally, I rode on a Shinkansen to Tokyo, where I was given an opportunity to give a lesson on logical thinking to a newly established project team of a Japanese company.

Having said that, I have to say herewith; I'm exhausted. Of course, my colleagues who have been accompanying me all through the tour also seem to be awfully exhausted. On the way from Sapporo to Osaka, I felt I caught a cold. Yesterday evening, I finally found a room to visit a hospital near Umeda. Taking an antibiotic the doctor kindly gave me, I'm feeling much better than beforehand in the morning.

Being in a hazy state caused by the cold, two different things occurred to me. I don't know why, however, let me write down what I've been thinking there: First of all, I spontaneously remembered what western astrologers had unanimously said in 2016.

Because of the on-going constellation, either infectious diseases, heavy rain or mega earthquake could cause huge troubles in the human society. Except for me, many colleagues and friends around me simultaneously took a cold.

It's too obvious to be disregarded here in Tokyo. Plus, if you interpret heavy rain as troubles caused by liquidity, you can easily find some financial scandals suddenly revealed in Japan: Yoichi Msuzoe, ex-Mayor of Tokyo, is being harshly criticized because of his financial misbehavior, while the French authority abruptly began to investigate a corruption case directly related to the summer Olympic games to be held in Tokyo in 2020. This will lead Japan to give up holding the game, as I've been predicting since 2012.

Having said that, why don't you think of the third opportunity, that is to say, seismologic risks here in Japan. Combining this with the above shown 2016, I can't help from imagining that a mega earthquake will happen on the day particularly in Tokyo.

All the leaders and their delegations would suffer from the natural disaster. The Japanese Shinzo Abe administration would be tremendously criticized by the global public opinion because of failed decision to hold the summit meeting in such a seismologic risky area. We, Japanese, would immediately grasp this is the very earthquake we've been told for more than 30 years.

Now, you may wonder it's just my daydream. However, my most important alliance partner indicated based on his statistical analysis that the Japanese financial market could suddenly collapse in the forthcoming period 2018.

In addition, we just saw big earthquake took place recently both in Kumamoto and Ibaraki. Why don't you pick up the center of the Median Tectonic Line where the next huge one will happen?

Secondly, I think our company should focus much more on its own productivity. Because of continuous volatility in both market and society, the economy is apparently shrinking. In such a situation, productivity is the key word, since profit in business is also shrinking.

Besides consulting and advisory on HRM and global strategy, we should begin with the third polar which would enable us to earn much more and raise productivity in a dramatic manner.
