There’s a man called Akiyama Lihui in Japan. He founded a professional carpenter customization enterprise which has only 34 staffs and can make a profit of 1.1 billion （Japanese yen）per year. Such amazing performance comes from the unique business management model of Akiyama Lihui.
This is a learning-oriented enterprise where both men and women are required to wear short spiky hair and they’re forbidden to play with mobile phone, fall in love or obtain money or stuff from their parents. Besides, they’re required to recite rules three or four times and they must summarize and reflect on their own every day during their eight-year apprenticeship without any holiday. After eight-year apprenticeship is finished, apprentices start their own business in the ninth year. I think many people cannot accept such strict management, but I as an enterprise administrator understands the care and thought of Akiyama Lihui quite well.
Both men and women are required to wear short spiky hair in order to eliminate appearance differences between men and women, thus avoid lust among apprentices. Cellphone is forbidden in order to keep apprentices away the dust of the world and keep their heart peaceful and quite so that they can concentrate on learning. Apprentices are forbidden to fall in love so that they don’t waste their previous time during their apprenticeship. The refusal of money or stuff from parents can enable apprentices to develop belief of earning their own living and learn practical skills so that they parents can feel at ease. As for reciting rules three or four times every day, repeated recitation can enable apprentices to abide by discipline and strengthen their energy in future. In terms of summarization and reflection on their own every day, “a gentleman is active and vigilant all the day, and in the evening still careful and apprehensive. (The position is) dangerous, but there will be no mistake.” After continuous work all day for eight years, apprentices develop tough and hardworking life style and benefit in their whole life. This is really a wise management model.
Such seemingly ascetic management model brings in the most practical benefit, an annual income of 1.1 billion （Japanese yen）. Their customers come from the Japanese royal family, Japanese Imperial Household Agency, Guest House, Parliament and famous hotels. This is the success way of Akiyama Lihui. By virtue of craftsman spirit, everything can be achieved smoothly and beneficially, hence comes peace.
