綺麗な艶やかな花びらが 可愛らしく力強く咲いています。



植木鉢に 緑色の葉の雑草が育ってきました!







もしかしたら みなさま自身の中に ベランダの木の芽のように













最終的に いつ死ぬかがある程度把握できるのだと。



どこでも同じような事が 書かれていたり、言われていたりします。

英会話力も 自分の弱点を知れば そこを強化すればよいですし、

全てが弱点であれば、 何をしても 英会話力はあがります。


血液占い、星座占い、色々ありますが 占いに左右され 無意識的に自分自身をこうだと

思い込んでしまう人は 良い事が書いてある占いを読んだ方が良いですね。

Dear Kyoto ESS members,

This is Hayashi.
I am announcing you the practice on March 10th.

Genre : Discussion and Presentation
Title : Let's redefine and discuss your goals and objectives
based upon a certain rule which is called “S.M.A.R.T”.
Background :
It has passed 2 months this year early.
And we are going to enter into the new school term or fiscal year on next month.
So we’d like to talk about each member's Goal in your group, if you can share with another member.
In this practice, you can redefine Goals and Objectives according to the following or original categories
and then check and modify according to the methodology which is called the rule of “S.M.A.R.T.”

SMART has been used to set objectives, for example for project management, employee performance management and personal development.
I think it is possible for us to apply this for the following private objectives.

Categories Example
Life / Life Style/
Health /Diet/ Jogging
Hobby /achievement level
Job /Career Up
Love /to Get Married
Home /
Money /Saving/ Investment
Human relations /
Happiness /(regarding the previous Octan’s theme)
Environment /
Self –development /To obtain Certification

1.Making some groups ,
2 Set leader (presenter) for each group
3 Set the objective based on this abbreviation
4 Talk about several objectives in each group
5 Pick up one masterpiece for each group
Unique objective is very efficient for presentation
6 Brush up this mastership as group
7 Make a presentation on master piece

S : Specific
M : Measurable
A : Attainable
R : Relevant
T : Time-bound

Please prepare for your Objective as follows in advance.
Thank you.

Your objectives:

S Specific:

M Measurable:

A Attainable:

R Relevant:

T Time bound:

The following the detailed explanation.
Please check the following explanation if possible.

Terms behind the letters
There is no clear consensus about what the five or seven keywords mean, or even what they are in any given situation.
Typically accepted values are:

Letter Major Term Minor Terms
S Specific Significant, Stretching, Simple
M Measurable Meaningful, Motivational, Manageable
A Attainable Appropriate, Achievable, Agreed, Assignable, Actionable, Ambitious, Aligned, Aspirational, Acceptable, Action-focused
R Relevant Results-oriented, Realistic, Resourced, Resonant
T Time-bound Timely, Time-oriented, Time framed, Timed, Time-based, Time boxed, Time-Specific, Timetabled, Time limited, Traceable, Tangible
E Evaluate Ethical, Excitable, Enjoyable, Engaging, Ecological
R Reevaluate Rewarded, Reassess, Revisit, Recordable, Rewarding, Reaching

The first term stresses the need for a specific goal over and against a more general one.
This means the goal is clear and unambiguous; without vagaries and platitudes.
To make goals specific, they must tell a team exactly what is expected, why is it important, who’s involved, where is it going to happen and which attributes are important.
A specific goal will usually answer the five "W" questions:
What: What do I want to accomplish?
Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.
Who: Who is involved?
Where: Identify a location.
Which: Identify requirements and constraints.

The second term stresses the need for concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of the goal.
The thought behind this is that if a goal is not measurable, it is not possible to know whether a team is making progress toward successful completion.
Measuring progress is supposed to help a team stay on track, reach its target dates, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs it on to continued effort required to reach the ultimate goal.
A measurable goal will usually answer questions such as:
How much?
How many?
How will I know when it is accomplished?

The third term stresses the importance of goals that are realistic and attainable.
While an attainable goal may stretch a team in order to achieve it, the goal is not extreme.
That is, the goals are neither out of reach nor below standard performance, as these may be considered meaningless.
When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true.
You develop the attitudes, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach them.
The theory states that an attainable goal may cause goal-setters to identify previously overlooked opportunities to bring themselves closer to the achievement of their goals.
An attainable goal will usually answer the question:
How: How can the goal be accomplished?

The fourth term stresses the importance of choosing goals that matter. A Bank Manager's goal to "Make 50 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by 2:00pm."
may be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, and Time-Bound, but lacks Relevance.
Many times you will need support to accomplish a goal: resources, a champion voice, someone to knock down obstacles.
Goals that are relevant to your boss, your team, your organization will receive that needed support.
Relevant goals (when met) drive the team, department, and organization forward.
A goal that supports or is in alignment with other goals would be considered a relevant goal.
A relevant goal can answer yes to these questions:
Does this seem worthwhile?
Is this the right time?
Does this match our other efforts/needs?
Are you the right person?

The fifth term stresses the importance of grounding goals within a time frame, giving them a target date.
A commitment to a deadline helps a team focus their efforts on completion of the goal on or before the due date.
This part of the S.M.A.R.T. goal criteria is intended to prevent goals from being overtaken by the day-to-day crises that invariably arise in an organization.
A time-bound goal is intended to establish a sense of urgency.
A time-bound goal will usually answer the question:
What can I do 6 months from now?
What can I do 6 weeks from now?
What can I do today?

Dear Kyoto NHK ESS members:

Hello, this is an announcement of the practice on March 31st.

(1) Genre: Summarization & Presentation
(2) Title: “Let's share your favorite movies”
(3) Description:

The purpose of this practice is to make an attractive introduction of your favorite movie in the form of "4-frame cartoon". Let's try to introduce your favorite movie effectively so that you can inspire other members to watch the movie!
The procedure is as follows.

1. Make some groups.
2. I will hand out A4 paper on which a 4-frame format is written. And then please summarize your favorite movie's outline using pictures & comments in 4-frame format.
3. When all members finish writing, let's introduce your favorite movie to other members with additional explanation in each group.
That's all.

I think.. it would be difficult to summarize a movie outline within limited time, therefore, please plan how you summarize & introduce your favorite movie in advance.
I hope everyone enjoys this practice.
(※ If you don't like drawing pictures, you don't necessarily need to be bound by this form. Any form is OK as long as you can introduce your favorite movie effectively! )
Thank you for reading.

Mai Nishimura
