Spring is in the air! I can feel it! It’s official.

My pollen allergies just started yesterday.

Since last year I developed the special Tokyo kafunsho, and spring has taken on a new meaning.

Wondering when it will be over. 

Actually, I haven’t been sulking in my pollenated sadness quite yet, I just started thinking about how what we plant now grows into some type of result in our lives. 

The reason being: this is the last spring before the olympic spring and it is up for debate whether Japan will change or not. 

And if so, will it be a good change. 

I believe it depends on the seeds we plant.

A simple example I will propose to you is let’s say you can’t speak English at all at the moment. 

During next year some frantic foreigner comes to you needing to catch their Shinkasen and they don’t know how to get to the special gate.

If you just studied some basic terms starting today, you would be able to help them by next year. If you didn’t, it may take you a couple minutes to understand what they are asking, as opposed for a couple seconds. Resulting in them missing their train and event. 

Another case could be, maybe you have a small business, and need some more customers. You could have a customer from overseas that comes and wants what you have to offer.  

If you studied some English terms that are business related, you could possibly exchange e-mails and they could want you to export large amounts of your products to them. If you did this a with a few foreign customers, your company could get out of the red.

Who knows what’s possible if you plant the seeds before hand.

But we know what’s impossible: for you to have a better chance at success if you did nothing to prepare. 

So if you haven’t already, start now. You can listen to some podcast, watch some English Youtubers, or preferably check out our materials linked below.

While the seeds are sprouting this season, make sure you’re planting yours.
