Arigato Natto 3ーFive steps to scale up small initiative in Europe

English日本語EspañolFrançais, Português

Since I moved to Denmark (last November), this is the first entry to write something related to the experience here.

I could have written about Nordic culture, Danish winter, mindset, new year fireworks, its social welfare system, etc. But instead of those, the topic I decided to write about is this.

Natto making in Denmark as a scale-up.

Yes, it is about natto making which I started in Africa. But it is also about showing how to scale up something. So hopefully this will serve for natto lovers as well as anyone who wants to scale up what you do, be it a start-up, project, hobby or your learning cycle.

English日本語EspañolFrançais, Português

你明白我在写什么吗?

Although Chinese has been my “to-learn language” for several years, I haven’t been able to improve much simply because my level of motivation was not that high.

Having known myself, I knew I was not going to take actions to establish my Chinese study habit quite soon, so I just found registration info on the exam called “HSK”, and before thinking too much, I signed up for it and paid, so there would be no way but to study for passing.

The deadline was in 1 month, which was descent timeline (as opposed to X years). In this entry, I am sharing my journey, including what HSK is, why I took and how I worked on to pass it in 1 month.

Review 2020 to survive and thrive in 2021

English, Español, Français, 日本語

This year already finished? Time flies!

I am sure you heard or said this phrase recently. But the truth is, time does not fly. In fact, it is one of the few things, if not only, that is equally distributed to everyone, so we need to keep reminding ourselves of it.

How was your 2020?

In that sense, Year-end is a great moment to review what you did and who you are, to thrive and even survive in the next year. In this post, I will capture my examples with new method, hoping you might get something out of it.
