According to Rakuten Inc. CEO, Hiroshi Mikitani, teaching is the secret to success.  He isn’t saying that everyone should go out and become a university lecturer.  Instead, he states that there are teaching opportunities to he harnessed in almost every career (through mentoring, presentations, and so on).

One of the themes of this blog is applying business principles to teaching in order to achieve career success.  I’ll admit that I’ve strayed from that a bit, but the concept remains as the core thought that motivated me to start this blog.  Mr. Mikitani’s recent post on LinkedIn lends credibility to this idea.  Check it out here:  Teaching:  The Secret to Success

  1. Before teaching, we should know ourselves and recall what teachers told us. Only can we
    come to know what teachers should convey to students. Teaching is backed up by experiences
    we have had so far.
