“Do it.” A challenge only possible when mistakes are allowed.
I made an assortment of popular products, such as spray bottles, sponges, and scourers, and put them in the empty space among plastic items. Poor store staff! They only wanted buckets, but they come with other products.
I told them that it was necessary to keep the price of the buckets low. But they kept saying, “We don’t need this much.” I tried that for some years, but it never worked. Nowadays, nobody does it.
I was employed at Daiso when annual sales saw an increase from 3 billion yen to 430 billion yen. The corporate climate allowed the acceptance of drastic ideas and mistakes. Such challenges made the company grow.
