The president of Nintendo encouraged a 12-year-old boy to make an effort and make his dreams come true.
During the last few days, an alleged letter has come to light that Satoru Iwata, former president of Nintendo, wrote to a 12-year-old boy encouraging him to continue studying and striving to make his dreams come true, that they happened to become a videogame developer
“Thank you for your letter, I am delighted that you have chosen Nintendo as part of the school’s work-related duties,” the late Satoru Iwata wrote to this young man in 2013. “At school, I started to get interested in computers and very soon I decided to study the subject at the university. While I was a university student, I realized how much fun it was to create video games and decided to turn it into my work. “
What you do well and what you like may not match Iwata says in his writing that developing games “is a job that requires a lot of energy, but for me, it was even more fun than playing them.” That, in addition to other people, could enjoy my creations, gave me a goal in life “. The boy asked about what work he should do in his adult life and to this, the Japanese creative responds that “there is not a single answer”.
“I think you’ll discover what you’re good at if you think about the things that interest you and do not settle for spending your days without expanding your knowledge, discovering new things and repeating that process,” says Iwata. “What you do well and what you like may not match,” adds the late president of Nintendo. “That’s one of the reasons why you should continue to study and gain experience impartially.”
“Please, strive for that, ” the long-awaited Satoru Iwata, one of the key figures of the success of the company responsible for Nintendo Switch, sadly dies in July 2015 due to illness.
