*Monthly Session | Atsushi SUGITA [nano school #59 | How to be tolerant #9]

A man who is being hurry for something goes through beside you. His shoulder bag hits you. You become to be unsteady a little. The man knows it. The man does not turn around. As he goes further away, you hear his tutting. You feel a surge of anger. You have no clue what to do about.

Why did you get angry? He had a reason of hurry ahead and you disturbed a little his course. No, even if he didn’t have a reason and you didn’t disturbe his course completely. You do not have to get angry. You should not spend your precious life time for such a thing. At that moment, you could have shrugged your shoulder, turned back and made a laugh with the person behind.

Just as we learn mathematics, languages, history and sociology, such things, we must learn about being tolerant. In the fifth season of the nano-school, named “How to be tolerant”, we will think about being tolerant. It would be great if, through one year, we could create a slogan like “How to work better” by Fischli & Weiss.
