I first encountered Kohei Nirengi in writing my other blog, Baseball By The Letters.
Kohei has adopted two languages after his native Japanese: he’s fluent in English and BASEBALL.
From Japan via postal mail, he collects autographs of former major leaguers. In the process, retired players have become pen pals.
“I believe that baseball is the most beautiful game all around the world.”
What’s the secret of his success? I’d credit that one good sentence in all his letters. A sentence that he means with all his heart. That’s the kind of sentence that Hollywood sticks on a movie poster.
Forget the cookie-cutter “mission statement.” Forget today’s buzzwords.
Be like Kohei. Start with one good sentence. One true sentence. Mean every word.
Every word matters. Kohei knows.
