Bureaucrats behave very differently than a private-sector manager because their motivations are different. Permanent bureaucrats, no matter how senior, worry about their next job.
What I worry about is not just Nissan, but Japanese manufacturers losing motivation to maintain production in Japan. The high yen is definitely a headwind.
It doesn't matter who is playing or how old they are. I just worry about what I can control. It doesn't give me more or less motivation.
Examining other people's motivations, other people's language and other people's way of interacting is much more fascinating to me than spending a lot of time worrying about my own. I've said, 'What other people think of me is none of my business.'
Don't watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.
Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, Faith looks up
