Inspiration came everyday in life. from today class I have a story to tell and I decide to post it and made some revision. this is the story:

There is a taxi driver from a Blue Bird Company who has loyal customer that always use his taxi every day. it's maybe because the quality of taxi has been trusted for many costumer and has a good record in servicing costumer with good attitude and never disappoint their costumer. 

The Loyal costumer is a women who has long hair and always want to picked up near a dark bridge at a midnight after she finished her work with little worry the taxi driver go to pickup her. through the dark he sing to encourage himself. 

as usual, at the place He seen the woman with white dress and long hair started to drive to her home. he didn't dare to look face to face with her with no reason. 

after 30 minutes drive the taxi. Blue Bird had arrived at her home. with no conversation the costumer get her hand to the shoulder of the driver. and said "stop". but as usual when the driver looking at back sit of the car, the woman has disappeared leaving with the smell of flowers.

from this story: Blue Bird taxi quality service is really good even Ghost trust and drive it. hehehe

What is your raison d'etre (reason for being) today? every people has it right? even the corporation cannot walk without  raison d'etre. it's like a breath, that we must do it and have it to survive this every day life.

One chance in life time, we face the reality that sometimes we must accept the thing that we did't agree. like opinions, paradigms, critics and habitual that other people have. but we have no choice to doing something to fix it but the condition make us prefer to accept this kind of things. 

Unsynchronizing between we and the others caused by many differences in every side of life. such as value, believe, culture, religion and others. unfortunately in this life we exactly will meet this kind of differences and it usually made some dangerous condition for our places this world. the differences between people thinking usually cause harmful reaction and make conflict that destruct to both side. 

It's better if we have tolerance and can unite with others that have differences to aim goals that have advantages for all. one of the tools to unite and tolerance others is open mind. in dictionary definition we find :

As we know that Japan have the ability to produce high quality manufacturing product such as automotive and electronics industry. Japan has been concurred automotive and electronics industry all over the world. 

If we track back the way that japan step until they have a great achievement like now, we will find that the Japanese way is understandable for us. I have this reference for my professor in my major of Industrial engineering class of Quality Control. 

Lets start from when Japan have a great depression. this happen in 1945 when second world war had just  ended. at that time America (US) bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki with the new generation of bomb. atomic bomb.  Japan crush and being zero nation in everything, didn't have any strength. Industrial bankrupt, military loose and the civilization had a lot of suffer because of the war.

United States who the winner of second world war have planning to be powerful nation for everlasting year. so they seized their economic. in specific chase they plan that Japan must be the one nation that become a right hand for the US economic. 

The US government then send their expert economic to built economic system for Japan. one of  the man is Edward Deming. He is an Expert in Quality Control known as American Statistician, Professor, author and Consultant. in the end of his effort "Japan Hero" is given to Him. Deming made a significant contribution to Japan's later reputation for innovative high-quality products and its economic power. He is regarded as having had more impact upon Japanese manufacturing and business than any other individual not of Japanese heritage. Despite being considered something of a hero in Japan, he was only just beginning to win widespread recognition in the U.S. at the time of his death.

Now, lets start to the point of this article. "Michi" related to above paragraph has meaning, Michi is the philosophy of work. It is the way of Japanese people see everything they do for work that: they work not determine by result but they do the work focus in process of work. how the process is more precious for them. Michi has strong related for Japan Continuous improvement. 

so in a simple word "Michi" is how we focus on process not for the result. they believe that there is no best result but there is always better result. this philosophy has made Japan lead the Industrial in technological based. They never stop in point that others maybe stop because their result has been done.

like the image bellow that show you the different philosophy when some people or country work based on process or result.

Unlimited improvement is the way of Michi. either if based on result it will stop when the result has done. 

how is my explanation? it's clear? 
wait for the next article..
