Made in Japan

make.believe

-- The vision that drives Sony Corporation

Inspiration comes from many sources, if only one can observe and absorb, that is!

One such resource is Made in Japan, autobiography of the famed Akio Morita, erstwhile head of the Sony Corporation, an organization that is synonymous for cutting edge quality and excellence!

The book is replete with instances of commitment, dedication, enthusiasm, innovation and perseverance, doses of which can be liberally adopted and replicated by all of us in our daily lives. The key, according to Morita, is discipline without which nothing can be made possible and with which there is nothing that can come to be impossible!

What is striking is the narrative itself, which is extremely simple, warm and very personal. It is a work of art that depicts the working of a very evolved mind that does what it loves the most, with a very strong sense of dedication and will power that has ensured what Sony is today!

For those of you who are looking for a very good add to your collection, this is a masterpiece and an absolute must read from which a lot of lessons can be well-learnt.

Footnotes:

Sony is presently a $79.6 billion enterprise employing over 180,500 people, with total assets of over $123 billion.

    It sure is very interesting to the point of understanding how important discipline and innivation are in life!

    And, Sony's products being overpriced is a policy followed, something which is mentioned in the book a number of times!
