The century that Konosuke Matsushita’s life (1894-1989) nearly spanned was a tumultuous period for Japan and the world. He faced many difficulties and hardships in rapidly changing times, and he threw himself completely into every endeavor he undertook to overcome each challenge.
Konosuke once remarked, “There is one thing I can say about my entire life and career: from the time I started as an apprentice to when I went to work at the Osaka Electric Light Company, and from the moment I began my independent business career, I not only performed my work sincerely, conscientiously, and to the best of my abilities, but I enjoyed what I was doing and achieved a great sense of fulfillment.”
The 38 essays in this volume will help you discover ways to successfully develop your career by enjoying your business life and devoting yourself to it. They are all themes that Konosuke spoke about to the employees of Panasonic throughout his business career.
