Character Builds the Nation


Extracted from Maulana Wahiduddin Khan’s writing

Toyota, a Japanese motor company, has been functioning for the last thirty years without a single day ever having been wasted, and without its production ever once having slackened. This is only one of the many examples which explain the fast development of industry in Japan. General Motors and the Ford Motor Company of the U.S.A are the biggest motor manufacturing companies in the world. The annual production of these motor companies is, on an average, 11 cars per employee, while the Toyota Motor Company annually produces 33 cars per worker.

 

Considering the non-existence or at least paucity of all the major raw materials of industry in Japan—coal, iron, petroleum, etc.,—Japan still manages to surpass all other countries in industrial progress. One might well ask why. An analyst attributes Japan’s success to “A national spirit of compromise and co-operation, and a willingness to endure short-term setbacks for the long-term good of the nation, company or family.”

    In regard to the article. Japanese, these people respect and show gratitude to the leaf that falls of their tree’s. That is how I can describe them.

    Quote from the last sentence ” endure short-term setbacks for the long-term good of the nation, company or family. ” – wish people in this company would think like this

    In MTCC, most of the staff’s morale is going rapidly. Govt changed working hours, so did we. Govt raised salary so did WE?
    The earning for the common man goes down.

    just my view after reading this article.
