Discover 7 learnings about entrepreneurship that Japan has to offer

Japan, like other eastern countries, accumulates ancient knowledge that can easily be used today. The Japanese organizational culture has a lot to contribute to the rest of the world and companies and entrepreneurs can only gain from the teachings. Let's get to know the 7 main learnings that the Japanese have to offer:

1 - Power to believe in yourself

Eastern countries carry a rich mystical culture that many westerners are unaware of. The first teaching could not escape this field and the first teaching begins with the phrase: “You are the only one responsible for your conquests and defeats”.

What we can take away from this excerpt is that all achievements only depend on you, that is, success is only possible when the effort comes from within.

2 - respect the money

If you have cash on hand, it came after a lot of effort, most of the time. Thinking in this way, respect for him must be essential and that is exactly what the Japanese do.

Westerners tend to value only high notes, forgetting that coins also deserve respect and can generate a very interesting income at the end of the month. Every amount must be respected.

3 - Resilience to achieve your goals

Almost everyone has a dream, excessive exertion being necessary in most cases. The Japanese are known for work hard, either out of necessity or for other personal reasons.

Disregarding work in an inhumane way, we cannot deny that they have a lot to teach us, especially in focus and determination when it comes to achieving their goals. Soak up their resilience and see your goals come to fruition sooner than you expected.

4 - Art Food

Everyone knows that Japanese cuisine is fantastic and full of mysteries, so the way the dishes are presented would be no different. The Japanese use and abuse eye contact when marketing food companies and realized that sales began to grow after they started using “fake photos” of food. This tip can be valuable for you who have or want to open an online or physical business within this niche.

5 - Visual communication 

As well as the use of visual communication in the food industry, the Japanese are also known for exaggerating in advertising campaigns in general.

It is quite common, on the streets of Tokyo, to come across several digital signs, screens with images and billboards, that is, the excess of information is something important in the country.

Of course, the adaptation of this model in Brazil could face some resistance, however, it is worth thinking about ways to use this trend in isolated advertising campaigns. 

6 - Work for the pleasure of delivering good work

Far more than working for money, Orientals like to work so that the work is delivered in a perfect way. A curiosity is that in Japan the simple fact of giving a tip may seem offensive, as they prioritize the work delivered more than the amount charged.

The lesson we can learn is that we should be more concerned with service than with financial returns. When the work is done correctly, finance comes naturally.

7 - Respect your schedule

Respecting time is not unique to the English, as in Japan they also have a great deal of respect for being punctual. They believe that just being able to organize your schedules and stick to them makes you hone your leadership skills.

Companies and entrepreneurs who have the ability to lead have a great chance that their company will be successful, so we can practice respecting schedules, so that our power to lead is worked. 

The diversity of cultures around the world can bring several lessons to be applied in routine. Japan is a clear example that persistence and belief in what you are doing can take your results to another level.
