What Should You Do to Make a Decision without Regret?

天津 神様

The other day, I talked with a business acquaintance coming from another prefecture on business. According to him, a second-tier construction company listed as a stock in the region that he lived went bankrupt.  An executive of a local major relationship bank became the president of the construction company a month ago after removing its founding family.

  • acquaintance 知人
  • prefecture 県
  • second-tier 準大手の
  • construction 建設
  • go bankrupt 倒産する
  • executive 役員
  • remove 排除する

The bank must’ve known the inside affairs of the company. What happened during the month? It seems that the suspension of the loan to the company triggered the bankruptcy. The local bank, unlike major ones, made an unshrinking decision to make the company go bankrupt without hesitation, I thought. The bank itself must’ve been desperate. Bold decisions of this kind will be difficult to make.

  • affairs 事情
  • suspension 一時停止
  • trigger 引き金となる
  • unshrinking 大胆な
  • hesitation ためらい
  • desperate 必死の

The company seems to have got contracts too easily for the past few years. If you work for a company closely related to such a prime contractors, when it begins to get contracts taking no account of profits, you can think about what to do next observing the situation. But subcontractors, sub-sub contractors or individual subcontractor can’t do this. They don’t know what’s going on in its client companies, no matter how hard they work. The employees have no choice but to believe the contractor, work hard receiving a draft payable four months later and manage to make a living expecting the money. But suddenly one day, they can’t cash the bill.

  • contract 契約
  • prime contractor 元請け
  • take account of A Aを考慮に入れる
  • profit 利益
  • observe 観察する
  • make a living 生計を立てる
  • cash 現金化する

I feel pity for subcontractors. They cannot help continueing getting contracts with their prime contractor providing them with work steadily, even when they feel something is wrong, like relationship between men and women. If you made a quick decision, you could avoid a tragedy of the future. But it’s difficult to do. You’re likely to avoid facing up the reality, thinking “Economy might get better soon,” or “I think I can handle it.” The same thing can be said about personal matters.

  • feel pity かわいそうに思う
  • cannot help ~ing 〜せざるをえない
  • provide 供給する
  • steadily 安定的に
  • avoid 避ける
  • economy 経済
  • personal 個人的な

So, what should you do to make up your mind? First, practice holding appreciative memorial services for your ancestors to get rid of your unnecessary, negative spiritual magnetism and then do what you can do to the best of your ability. By doing so, you can make a clear decision by yourself. You could do it without any hesitation. You would be ready to accept any consequences.

  • practice 実践する
  • appreciative 感謝の
  • ancestor 先祖
  • get rid of A Aを取り除く
  • to the best of one’s ability 精一杯
  • by oneself 一人で
  • consequence 結果

When you can’t make up you mind despite the practice of holding the memorial services, it can be the best not to make a decision for the time being, which means that challenges for you to experience and overcome still remain. If you don’t try your best to get over them, you’ll regret.

  • despite A Aにもかかわらず
  • for the time being しばらく
  • overcome 乗り越える
  • remain 残っている
  • regret 後悔する

Also, if you leave a decision to a fortuneteller or another person, you’re sure to have regret about the decision and feel uneasy endlessly because you’ve abandon what you should’ve overcome and left it as it was. The same kind of problem will happen to you again.

  • leave A to B AをBに任せる
  • fortune teller 占い師
  • be sure to~ きっと〜するだろう
  • feel uneasy 不安に感じる
  • endlessly 際限なく
  • abandon 放棄する

In modern society, a lot of people, not knowing what to do, are apt to consult pay-charging psychics or healers, rely on mumbo jumbo attaching to them unnecessary, negative spiritual magnetism, and be lost in a maze with no exit, making their situations much worse. Therefore, it’s important to know the following phrase, which definitely improves your life without the help of others:

  • modern society 現代社会
  • be apt to~ 〜しがちである
  • consult 相談する
  • pay-charging 有料の
  • rely on A  Aに頼る
  • maze 迷路
  • exit 出口

生かして頂いて ありがとう御座位ます。
