@ The third stage of my life
as business consultant
The greeting cards for retirement & new company establishment 2500 copies each with a week interval
As the attorneysf negotiation coming near to the conclusion, I was busy preparing the necessary registration papers for company establishment including the preparation of two kinds of sealed greeting letters to be sent to some 2500 persons, 5000 in all.
During my second stage of my life as a trucking businessperson, I have received some 30000 business cards in all fields. My retirement from the companies was so immediate that I thought my friends and those with whom I exchanged cards might come to feel why!? I thought some explanation is needed for my abrupt resignation together with a new information concerning my future new plan with the new company.
I used to have so many positions in the public organizations so as for me to let them know of my life change. I selected 2500 among the 30000.
The sealed greetings had two different types. The one is to let them know of my retirement of the companies and the other for the announcement of the new company establishment and its purpose. The former was in the form of two-folded and the latter three-folded. My greeting message was full of my words of explanation and hope to keep my honor and dignity.
I wrote the address and name on two different envelops at one time so that I could post them in a week interval. I used the Chinese brush for writing the envelops even though I am not good at it. I wrote five thousands envelops all together and kept them in the office until the day comes. The day was when the retirement money comes into my hands and ten millions yen out of it be deposited into my bank account as the capital for the new company.
I had a good reason why I made such performance. All came from my strong sense of gan aesthetic point of viewh. A newspaper and a weekly magazine wrote an article concerning my heart of it in a satisfactory manner.
The messages that I placed in those two different sealed letters told the end of the second stage of my life and the beginning of the third stage of my life in a dramatic tone.
