PDCA日記 Vol. 791「人間はどんな環境にも慣れる?






Mr. PDCAも複数のタスクを同時にやっているようですが、自分で『何をやっているか分からない』という状況に陥ることはないのですか?」(PDCA日記読者コメント終わり)














その際、複数の仕事を同時にこなすということに慣れた気がしています。」(Mr. PDCAコメント終わり)


今回紹介する資料「罪と罰」はドストエフスキーの名作ですが、過去に紹介したトルストイの「戦争と平和」と同様に、「聞いたことはあるけれども、全部読んだ人は少ないシリーズ」の一つと言われています(Mr. PDCAは、住所不定無職の時に読破 !)。

P.S. ビジネスにおいては、ポジティブな慣れというものがあります。














< Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「投獄」 = 「imprisonment」>




「彼は政治犯としての投獄生活を耐え抜いた」を英語にする場合、「He endured imprisonment as a political prisoner」とすればよいですね😊。







PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 791 "Can humans get used to any environment?"

At PDCA breakfast the other day, one colleague received the following interesting comments and questions.


"Recently, we have been asked multiple tasks from various departments. Mr. PDCA (me) seems to be doing multiple tasks at the same time, are there any tips to handle many tasks in such a challenging situation? "


For this inquiry, I responded as follows.


"Russian writer Dostoevsky said 'Humans can get used to any environment'. In my case, when I worked at a credit card company, I found tips to do multiple tasks simultaneously.


There are two regulators in the credit card industry in Japan (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry & Financial Services Agency).


At that time, I received countless orders from two authorities and I got used to handle multiples tasks."


The material to be introduced today "Crime and Punishment" is a masterpiece of Dostoevsky.


Just like Tolstoy's "War and Peace" introduced in the past PDCA diary, "Crime and Punishment" is said to be one of books which "Many people heard of the name, but only few of them have read all".


Main character Raskolnikov faces various challenges in this book, but Dostoevsky himself had been in a tough situation such as imprisonment as a political criminal, wife's nursing, and gambling failure, etc., when he was writing "Crime and Punishment".


"Humans can get used to any circumstance" might be words from the challenging experiences of Dostoevsky.

P.S. In case of business, we had better get used to positive customers such as greeting, thanking and punctuality.


When you are in the working environment where there is no greeting, thanking or punctuality, you need to have the courage to break the situation by yourself.


Even at such a time, it is possible to keep greeting, be on time and it can be said it is a chance to be conspicuous in a good way😊.
