Tokyo Executives Golf Day

Tokyo Executives would like to thank all of the participated in the Tokyo Executives Golf Day.

We would especially like to thank Bennett Galloway for communicating on behalf of Tokyo Executives with Camel Golf Resort to host the event there.
 
It was a good time had by all, many people experienced some of their personal best scores, and the weather coincided perfectly with our schedule, raining only when getting back to the clubhouse for lunch and then clearing up right as the tee times for the back nine holes started!
 
Below are some other pictures from the event, we hope that next year everyone will be able to join again!
 

Self-Awareness Will Save You

Self-Awareness for the Entrepreneur is an over-looked and yet very critical part of running a small businesses. 

Karen E. Klein, who is also a VC and has experience dealing with Entrepreneurs said to have classic ADHD-like tendencies, draws a very good comparison in his post about self awareness;

They keep lighting fires, and everybody else chases them all day. The question is, can you get them in a controlled environment and get them to understand the damage they’re doing and maximize their success?…

…we give them a very high fence in that sandbox so they can’t jump out and hurt themselves. The VC will tell them if they don’t get focused they’ll be replaced. It shocks the hell out of them because no one’s ever told them that before.

One of the top reasons many entrepreneurs fail, according to Martin Zwilling, is that Entrepreneurs often fail to execute.  Again going back to being self-aware of yourself in your action plan and following through instead of keeping all of the hypothetical great results replaying in your head is critical!

One way to do this is to MAKE LISTS.  It has been shown that simply writing things down has.  Whether it be changing a light bulb or writing a proposal for your next big client, writing down lists is an incredibly effective way to get ideas through the planning stages and into reality!
