Now that the economy and the environment are all changing at a rapid pace, the conventional wisdom in the framework = frame is no longer valid, and anyone can become a "frog in the well." While such a crisis is approaching, the dreams and goals that you have set may not go as planned and burn out as you try to live your own way. What exactly is life and freedom?
The idea of "promotion" in this book presents a new perspective on these worries of modern people. Advancement does not mean "promotion within the company." It is synonymous with "priesthood" and refers to the attitude of being oneself as it is, without being swept away by organizations or trends.
For 22 years, the author released a number of popular variety shows as a producer on TBS TV, then retired (progressed) at the age of 46 and became a freelance producer. When he quit the company, became freelance and observed society again, he noticed that the inside and outside of the company had the same characteristics. From the concept of freedom to the tips of socializing, this book, which the author "spelled in a straight ball," serves as a guide for readers to stay away from not only the company but also the social climate and move in the direction they want to go. Will give you.
After reading this book, it is up to the reader to decide whether or not to "progress". However, it is "no risk if you just read". Readers who are uncomfortable with their current lives should use this book as an opportunity to take the first step.
The main points of this book
In this book, "promotion" does not mean "promotion" but "getting out of the frame". It refers to the attitude of observing things by standing outside the conventional framework such as a company or society.
There are many things to worry about, but there is no best solution for life choices. It is most important to set aside the good and bad of any event and to take a positive view of the fact that you have met.
There is no "win or lose" in life. In fact, it's better to lose the game.[Must read point!] From "inside person" to "outside person"
What is "promotion"
The author's career advancement does not mean "standing career advancement." It literally means "getting out of the world."
Until now, changes have been within the existing framework. But from now on, the frame itself will change. In that case, the way of life that was previously regarded as "abnormal" becomes "normal way of life." Meanwhile, it is necessary to redefine the word “promotion” and understand it in the sense of “getting out of the frame”.
It should be noted that career advancement does not mean simply leaving the company and creating a new frame by yourself or moving into a new frame created by someone. Being always outside the frame is what makes you successful.
Go out of the "well"
The author has been making variety shows as a producer on TBS TV for 22 years. The media industry was a "well" that was driven by closed industry logic, despite the fact that it was informed from the outside. The author wanted to see more of the outside world and decided to advance at the age of 46.
However, even when I went out of the well and started doing various jobs, the feeling of strangeness did not disappear. "Uncomfortable feeling inside" and "uncomfortable feeling outside" have the same structure, and the uncomfortable feeling will not disappear unless you get out of it. In other words, no matter how many times you escape, the feeling of strangeness will last forever. If so, I realized that it was my role to just observe the discomfort, rather than trying to eliminate the discomfort.
Allocation of opportunity, time, fun and fatigue
When I was young, the author was worried that the project would not go through. I had a lot of things I wanted to do, but I couldn't put it into practice.
But now, I don't have to worry if the project doesn't go through. Rather, there are so many projects going on that I'm in trouble because I don't have enough physical strength and time.
Allocation of opportunity and time is a challenge in life. It takes time to dive into the depths of yourself to create something, but it takes time to dive and make and surface. Every time you do something, you need time to dive, forcing you to spread and divide your thoughts.
The division of thought gets tired. The distribution of fun and fatigue is also a challenge in life.
"Distribution of opportunity and time" and "allocation of fun and tiredness" are challenges in career advancement.
What will happen to your life if you choose only people's recommendations
When the author gives a lecture, he may be asked a question such as "A or B, which is the correct answer?" The answer is this. "Even if A is correct now, it may not be correct in the future. Therefore, even if you select B and make a mistake, you should notice it and reselect A rather than the correct answer recommended by a person to select A. Isn't it the correct answer to have the toughness and buffer that can be done and its experience? "
If you choose only someone's recommendations, you will not have the experience of "choosing yourself and failing", and you will miss the opportunity to train your own choice and insight. When choosing things, you can intuitively choose the one that gives you a good impression by "buying jackets". Even if it fails, it will improve the accuracy of the next jacket purchase.
Yuta Iyama, a professional shogi player, says, "Strike where you want to hit." So why aren't we hitting where we want to hit in different aspects of life? Why do we ask someone for advice?
Good and bad things happen unexpectedly. Therefore, it doesn't make much sense to anticipate the future in advance and be happy and depressed. Life is the accumulation of moments of "how to judge at that moment?", So "hit where you want to hit" is exactly the accumulation of that moment.
Make everything a "trigger for life"
The author does not explicitly believe in fortune-telling. However, I think, "I happened to meet the fortune-telling mission at some point in my life. Is there any meaning to that?" So, whether or not it says good fortune-telling, I just accept it. Furthermore, I find meaning in the "accidental inevitability" of events in life and encounters with someone, and I try to regard them as "triggers of life."
There are countless turning points in life. Therefore, people may think about the correct and incorrect answers of past choices and worry about future choices. But there is no best solution for life choices. The moment you choose A, the world begins to move as "the world that chose A," and your emotions are drawn to the fact that you "chosen A." Whether you choose A and proceed to the "world of A" or B and proceed to the "world of B", there is actually no big difference.
Whether it's fortune-telling, events, or encounters with someone, it's most important to set aside the good and bad of the content and positively grasp the fact that you've met. Both good and bad are themselves "triggers" to start something.
Hits are born by chance
The author feels that instead of "making things to hit", "sometimes hits when making good things". There are four conditions for a "occasional" hit to occur.
(1) The spirit to keep making it with or without hits, (2) Wisdom to keep it from ending, (3) Helping allies, (4) My constant efforts. It is quite difficult to get all four, and the key is whether or not there is a spirit close to the urge to "create something."
If you just want to create something, you should rather have a hobby. However, the things and things that have become "I can't help but create something" are the life of the person.
Make a habit of "let's change it"
When a painful thing happens, it seems like it will last a lifetime. However, the situation changes every day, and it changes steadily just by thinking of changing the situation. Unless you try to change the situation, it won't change.
That's why it's a good idea to make a habit of "let's change it." Just by stating that you will change, you will reach others with the desire to change. If you do not express it, you will not receive it, and others will not notice it. If you are suffering or lost, try changing it.
What is "life success"?
The author noticed that there are two types at the end of making variety shows. It is a "fixed end" and a "sudden end". Movies and dramas have a fixed end, and the goals are clear, so the end is refreshing. Variety shows, on the other hand, continue if the ratings are good, so it's bad to end.
The author continues, "That's why variety is like life. It's interesting." Life does not aim for the "end", but it is difficult and interesting because it pushes forward without knowing the end. It's the same with life that variety shows are crap and difficulties are encountered. There are times when it shines very brightly for a moment in the crap and difficulties. That's why it's wonderful.
The author himself experienced an unconvincing ending, in which the variety show he was in charge of ended due to company reasons. However, when I calmed down, I realized, "Is there anyone who can convince me how to end an adult? It's beautiful when I leave … What a cool way to end it?" "Rather, isn't it more beautiful to end stepping on the groundwork at the moment?" Even if it's not cool, no matter what anyone says, I struggle desperately not to end it. Isn't such a bad aftertaste the true "end"?
Lose but win
Having dreams to live a prosperous life, making plans to achieve what we want to do, winning the game to be happy … We have been thinking of life that way since we were children. That's not wrong, of course, but sometimes it's tiring, and sometimes it's frustrating and depressed. So what is life's success?
Now, three years after "promotion", the author has escaped from the situation where he is forced to race in some way, such as taking an examination, audience rating, and sales, and once again realizes that "life is not a race." What the author thinks recently is that there is no "win or lose" in life. Games and sports are meaningful and valuable because there are wins and losses. But if you look at life as a metaphor for games and sports, winning or losing is just a metaphor.
When you become a winner, you are jealous of the loser. With that in mind, it's actually better to lose the game. After all, it's better to lose to the extent that it won't be fatal.
Try to move first
Work with SNS
SNS is an information infrastructure. The author's freelance work is due to SNS, which provides information such as casting, production, ordering, and announcements. For the author, using SNS is synonymous with hunting in the Jomon period, rice cultivation in the Yayoi period, and working in a factory in modern times.
Also, I feel that writing sentences on SNS will greatly improve my work production skills. How do you write it? How do you interact smoothly? How do you design it? These are important for both SNS and work.
Moreover, you can receive feedback on the output. It's much more effective than a "fantasy" that is completed only in your own brain.
How to increase your chances of success
Things cannot be completed just by thinking with your head. You have to move yourself to give it substance. Then, when it moves, an unimaginable event occurs, something is noticed by the event, feedback is given, and the next step is taken. It's never exactly what I originally envisioned.
As with anything, it doesn't start until you try it. But before we start, we tend to imagine the future and think about the development, where we are satisfied or give up.
Still, there is no choice but to start. Once you start, your imagination, your feelings and thoughts will change. And if you don't start, your chances of success remain 0%.
To increase your chances of success, you need to set rules to prevent your imagination from going in the wrong direction. "What was the purpose when it was completed?" "What did you come up with to create it for?" "What is the idea that" this is the only thing that can be done "?"
However, even if you increase the probability of success, the 30% range is a good place. It's up to you to start with it or not because the odds of success are low.
