I still remember what my edokko mother told me at the ripe age of 21 before I embarked into the salaryman world. She was very kind and caring in her way of explaining because she wanted me to do my best and succeed like any mother would.

She told me the 3 most important things to remember as a salaryman are:

  1. renraku - communication
  2. kakunin - confirmation
  3. gaman - patience and perseverance. Things don't always go your way and you have to make sacrifices.
