一匹の子羊

ちょうど一年前、サウジアラビアに行ったときの思い出がふとよぎった。
 
大きな天然の岩を削ってできた古代遺跡のマダイン・サレに行った後、いったんホテルに戻った。そうしていると、現地ガイドの男性がその近くの町出身で、両親が農場を経営しているので、ちょっとよっていかないか、という話になった。当然興味ありありなので、複数の車に分乗してその農場に行った。
 
土地柄、農場の規模も大きい。大きなナツメヤシが何本も整然と栽培されているのは本当にスケールのでかさを感じた。しかもちょっと行けば世界遺産がある場所だ。
 
そこでは、農作物だけでなく、羊も飼育していた。子羊だけが集められた飼育場(これも結構な広さだ)があり、その中に入れてくれた。飼育場といっても、小屋で飼育しているわけではなく、屋外で小さめの放牧をしている感じだ。
 
僕たちがそこに入ると、当然ながら子羊たちは柵の一番奥のほうにさがり、こちらをじっと凝視して警戒している。子羊は全部で100匹弱ぐらいいただろうか?やつらはみんなとにかく人間にびびっているようだった。ちょっとでも近くに行こうものなら、いっせいに逃げ出し、中には岩の上にまで無理してのぼり、バランスを崩しているやつもいた。
 
しばらくの間、人間が遠くから羊を観察する均衡状態が続いた。
 
 
 
そのうち、一匹の子羊が何のけなくひょこひょこと集団から抜け出して、こっちに向かってきた。黒い子羊だ。逆にこっちが驚いたんだけど、そいつは自分自身で僕らの真ん中にやってきた。人間は20人ぐらいいたけど、みんな(とくにおばさんがた)そいつのかわいさにやられてしまったんだ。手を出してなでても怖がる気配もなし、抱きかかえても問題ない。まあ、当然のことながら写真大会になった。
 
別の羊たちは相変わらず、一番奥のほうからその光景を眺めていた。
 
同じ飼い方をしていて、ここまで極端に性格に差が出るのはいまだに信じられない。あいつどうなったかなあ?

Is this common in other countries, too?

It is getting clear.

 

Just a short while ago, I went to post office to have a luggage delivered to my home town.  The receptionist said they would deliver it tomorrow.  It may because I just didn’t know the fact, but I was surprised that Japanese distribution system is so active like this in this holiday season.

그럭저럭 올해의 일을 결말지었다

흐림이다.

 

어제가 종무이었다. 하지만 일을 끝낼 없어서 10 까지 회사에 남아 있었다.  

 

올해는 11월에까지는 평화 자체이었지만 12월에 들어가면 일이 엄청하게 생겨서 정신이 없어졌다.  이번 달은 인세에서 제일 바쁜 달의 하나이었다.

 

일의 균형이 완전히 깨져 있을 같다.  경영자에 일의 양이 너무 많다고 어필을 필요가 있다.

언제 번역을 재착수할 수 있을까?

춥지만 겨울에 어울린 날씨이다.

 

프로젝트는 생각 보다 되갈 같지만 아래 같은 불안도 있다.

 

          중요한 S/W 계획 대로 나올까 모른다.

          프로젝트 이외의 일이 생겼지만 대응 하는 것이 어렵다.

          잔업이 많아서 시기가 오른다.

 

멘버간의 대화는 되가고 있다고 한다.  프로젝트를 시작하기 전에 Help 번역을 열심히 하고 있었지만 재착수할 있을 같지 않다.  

더블 부킹의 가능성

조금 추울까?

 

지금 생각한 것이지만 오늘은 어쩌면 더블 부킹이 될지도 모른다. 오후에 예정을 두개 넣었는데 앞의 일이 뒤에 벗어날 가능성이 있어서 뒤의 일에 영향이 있을지도 모른다.  어떻게 하면 될까?

Started doing time management

It was a bit cold.

 

Very busy.  Since the beginning of this month, I have too little time to do anything but work.  For all these years, I have not needed time management while working because I didn’t have enough work volume to manage.  

 

But since I had started to involve in this project, I always have multi tasks, all of which I cannot remember without memo.  And prioritization of tasks is always required in this heavy-duty situation.  In addition, task priority is always changeable because the client’s schedule is also very tight.

Let’s work together!

It was fine.

 

Due to machine problem, could not go ahead with the project much.  

 

The computer of a new project member from Korea had a plug which could not be inserted into Japanese outlets, so he and I went out to buy a converter to an electric store.  To address this problem, I spent most of the morning.

 

In afternoon, another problem occurred.  This person’s PC could not UNC to other computers even though it could ping to them.  We tried to troubleshoot this, but it wouldn’t work and we gave up finally.  It is a critical issue because we have to share a lot of files related to this project.  So we have to find workaround to this problem immediately.

 

First I had a feeling that he was an expert on this area of work, so I could leave him most of this project in trust, but it is wrong.  As I had been in charge of this project longer than other members and I know it much better than them, I should share them as much information as I have.  Otherwise I will paint myself into a corner in the long run.

 

As I had spent two days with this expert from Korea, I felt he was really a good person.  I like him and I would like to help him as much as I can.   As I know how difficult it is to make progress on a difficult work like this, it is important for us to have a common feeling of working together, thinking it is fortunate to live together in this small window of lifetime where we can share our precious time.

 

Keep: Try to share information with members

Problem: Computer problem

Try: Figure out what I should do to help him with this project because his responsibility and work load seems getting too high
