We get up, get dressed, go to work, maybe workout, come home, make dinner, eat dinner, watch some television and go to bed. Then we repeat it again and again, except for on weekends when we do our grocery shopping, do laundry and drop off and pick up clothes at the dry cleaners. We might go see a movie or meet with friends and family and then we get ready for the start of the work week and repeat this over for years. Granted we do take a week or two off each year for vacation, but for most of us, our lives are fairly routine. Sounds boring? Maybe. However, in order to make something a habit, we have to do it routinely for a period of time. The good or bad we attract in our lives comes from our habits. To bring more happiness into our lives, we have to be willing, committed and implement changes into our lives.
Kaizen in Practice
Kaizen is the process of making incremental improvements that add up over time. These small changes create big results. Kaizen is the Japanese practice of making changes for the better. Founded by Masaaki Imai, the Kaizen books look to how to create simple, effective ways to address problems. The books share stories of how improvements can be made at the personal and at the corporate business level that yield great results.
Simple, Gentle and Effective
Applying the principles in Kaizen books can help you see how you don’t have to go through a huge ordeal to create big improvements to your life. It’s always a good thing to look at the big picture so you have your overall goal set. However, how you conquer your goal may be broken up into smaller steps. As they say, a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
