we gotta make sure we get things done on time or ahead of time, if we can.
I am one of those success stories, Jack.
I started off in the mailroom, and now I'm in management.

start off:
You can use it almost the same as "start", but it implies that there are stages to whatever you're doing, or that things might change later on. For example, if you were talking about your exercise plans you might say, "I'll start off with a two mile run, then do some yoga." You could also say, "Blind dates always start off awkward, but as you get to know the person, they usually get better."

You could not, however, say, "You should start off looking for a job," instead of "You should start looking for a job."

*tough on someone:

e.g. My boss is very tough on me, but I need the structure and discipline.

Do you have any reservations about my qualifications?
私の能力について何か懸念点はありますか?

reservationは「予約」、「保留」

女性専用車両をめぐる議論の落としどころ

下記記事ははてぶ初心者の自分でもわかる感じで、きれいにまとめられててありがたかった。

anond.hatelabo.jp

 

個人的には現時点での現実解としては、女性専用車両は悪くないんじゃないかと思う。

ただ、現実解と書いたように長期的な視点においてのベストな解とは思ってなく、少なくとも差別意識を感じる人は日本にも少数いるはずだし、海外からくる人の中にはより敏感に感じる人も多いだろうと思う。

 

なぜ差別、あるいは軽視・蔑視と感じる人がいるのかというと、「人を種類や属性で分けているから」だと思う。

極端な例だが、例えばアメリカで電車で痴漢や集団暴力の被害にあう比率が一番高いのが黒人女性だとしよう。

そこで一番被害の割合が多い黒人女性を守るために、黒人女性専用車両を作ったとしよう。もしこのような車両があったとして、日本人が聞いたら多くの人が違和感を感じると思う。それは人を人種や性別などの「種類・属性」で分けているからだろう。

そして、このように種類や属性で分けた場合に、差別を受けていると感じるのは、黒人女性とそれ以外の属性のすべてのタイプの人の両方で起こり得ると思う。

それは、人が差別だと感じるのは「種類や属性で判断されたとき」だと考えるからだ。

 

ここで日本の女性専用車両の問題に戻って考えてみる。

今これが現実解となっているのは、日本人女性でこれを差別と考えている人が極めて少ないからだ。だが、このような車両があることで、女性専用車両に入るべきでない側(男性側)も差別を受けていると感じることに対して、そこまで強い批判は本来すべきできないと思う。

なぜなら差別意識というのは個人的な体験だからだ。

なら、理想的な解は何だろう?

 

 

個人的には下記エントリに出ていた「ケア車両」はいいと思う。

この車両のポイントは女性専用車両と比べて、「人を種類や属性で分けているのではなく、サービス(ケア)の必要有無」で分けているところだと思う。

人は属性分けをされた場合と違って、個人希望によるサービス必要の有無で分けられたときに差別だと感じない。ここが肝だと思う。

もちろん、ケア車両といえども、個人で乗車の是非を決めるわけだし、必要でない人を強制的に退場させることが出来る法的拘束力もないので、そこは監視カメラの設置による抑止力を働かせるといったことになるだろう。

anond.hatelabo.jp

 

法的拘束力を持つ車両を作るというのは、難しいと思う。

だから、抑止力を差別意識が生じることなく働くような車両を作ることが現実的かつ理想的な解であり、将来的な落としどころになるんじゃないだろうか。

もちろん、長期的な課題としては満員電車の解消も当然根本問題として認識する必要がある。ただ、莫大なインフラ投資が必要なことを考えると、呼び名を変えてカメラを設置するにとどめるケア車両の方がまだ手身近な解だと思っている。

自分の能力向上のために

タイトルは大それているけど、少しでもアウトプット向上のために、最近見聞きして気になったキーワードを書いていく。

 

まずいきなり完璧なアウトプットでないと発表したり、記事に書いてはだめだと考えてはいけない。

自分もよく「こんな質で公開できるかよ」と考えることが多々あり、結局着手すらしないこともあるけど、これはいわゆる完璧主義的な考えの弊害だと思う。

成長するためのアウトプットなのだし、成長過程なんだから、最初から完璧じゃないと後悔しないとか厳しい自分ルールを作らない。

 

次に習慣化する。「天才たちの習慣」的なホットエントリーを見た。ダイエットが続かない友達の話を最近聞いた。紗倉氏*落合氏の対談を読んだ。(小説を入院中書き出した下り)

すべてに共通すると気づいたのは、強力なアウトプットを出す人は、その能力を磨く行動を習慣化させていることだ。習慣化させるには最初から難易度が難しい行動を習慣化しようとしない。ダイエット中の友達が彼女にジムに行け、野菜を食べろ、移動で楽をしようとするな、それら全部同時に継続しろと言われ、調整したはいいけど目標体重を達成した瞬間やめた話を聞いた。短期的に一気にやせたはいいけど、結局続かなくちゃ意味がない。跳び箱で高い段を飛ぶのにも、低い段から練習する必要がある。継続して出来る範囲と質を少しずつ広げる・高めていくしかない。

 

とりあえず、キーワード2つ。完璧にならないと発表しないという自分ルールを捨てる。習慣化することを大切にする。

これを大切にしようと思う。
