Please state your motto in life and why you have chosen it.

“Patience” and “persistence” are two words I’ve had to keep in mind when conducting business in Japan. It takes more time than first meets the eye to build consensus, especially on the complex issues I engage in all the time. You have to recognize that it takes a vision that needs to be persistently pursued, and a certain amount of patience and time horizon to achieve that vision. Sometimes, although we want to move a lot faster — and everybody agrees with that — we need to make sure we move fast in an intelligent way.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
