Start Late, Finish Rich

Start Late, Finish Rich by David Bach

「求めよ、さらば与えられん」。自分の思いはいつも口に出しておかねばなりませぬ。いつも髪を切っていただいている美容師サムライcoolcutsさんが貸してくれました。わたしに必要だと感じて、すっと良書を差し出してくれる。ありがたいです。Coolcuts殿、感謝なり。

これ、いろんな国のバージョンがあるようですが、どういうわけかcoolcutsさんから借りたのはカナダバージョン。だけど大まかには内容は同じのようです。

キーワードを書き出します。

Latte Factor
Retirement Plan (Index Fund of REIT, Mutual Funds & Bond Mutual Funds)
A Four Week Action Plan
Small Business
Buy a House or more
Give More

「自分への問い」リスト。ときどき紙に書き出してチェックしたい問い。

The Personal Brand Questions:

- As a employee, do you stand out or blend in?
- If you left your company, would it be hurt or helped?
- Do you come to work on time, early, or late?
- Do you have a written plan for your career that describes how you add value at work, or do you wing it?
- Do you have a relationship with the person who determines whether you should get a raise? Do you know anything about his or her family? Does he or she know anything about yours?
- Do you really care about the company you work for, or is it just a job?
- Do you spend any time, money, and/or effort learning new job skills so you can add greater value to your company?
- Do you have a vision of where you want to be with your employer in three to five years?
- Does your employer know you have a vision?

またこの本の中では、「よいビジネスパーソンではなくて、すばらしいビジネスパーソンでなければならない」とありました。ちょっと耳が痛いチェックリストはこちら↓

The Seven Magic Questions:

1. What is the most important thing I do for my boss?
2. What does my boss think I'm uniquely talented at?
3. What would my boss be afraid to tell me about my job or how I do it?
4. What would my boss say I could do to add more value to my job?
5. What could I do be my boss's "dream team" employee?
6. Knowing what he or she has learned about me in all the time I've worked here, would my boss hire me today?
7. What would my boss say it would take for me to get a raise in the next six months?

「最後に幸せに過ごすために定年まで待つ必要はない。」

The "Live Rich" Questions:

What makes you happy? Be honest. Think about all areas of your life.
What makes you happy at work?
What makes you happy at home?
What makes you happy with friends and family?
what makes you happy when you are by yourself?
What do you love to do?
What would you do with your life today if you were not afraid of failure?
What is not working in your life?
What are you currently doing that prevents you from experiencing joy?
What is working in your life?
Who is not working in your life? Often there are people in our lives who don't add value. In fact, they subtract from our life's joy. Be honest.
Who right now in your life is subtracting value from your life and adding misery to it?
Can you fix any of these relationships or should you let them go out of your life?
What relationships are working in your life? Just as there are people who don't work in our lives, there are people in our lives who do.

この本を読んだきっかけで、わが留学団体を通じて留学した方1人につき、30ドル寄付をすることに決めました。留学する人からはお金をいただいていないので、団体の運営費からの寄付です。寄付金の送り先は、日本で多発した自然災害の義捐金、あるいは発展途上国の教育支援団体です。日本に安全を、世界に教育を!
