Here is my thought for today ….
Kaizen is a Japanese word (I think) that translates to “positive change.” I like to think of this as “incremental improvement.”
I explain it as step-by-step improvement or “two steps forward, one step back.” You get the idea.
Pick a single area in your life where you feel a little improvement might do you some good. Don’t bite off more than you can chew. Just one goal for the moment.
Then, draft, or conjure up a plan designed to get you one step closer to your goal. Let’s say you want to get fit enough to run a mile without stopping.
- Day One: Buy a pair of running shoes. (Done for the day)
- Day Two: Lace them up and walk to the street and back. (Done)
- Day Three: Walk to the corner and back. (Done)
- Day Four: Jog 30 seconds. Walk one minute. (Done)
- Day Five: Jog one minute. Walk thirty seconds. (Done)
- Day Six: Jog until you have to rest. (Done)
Before you know it, and without breaking your back or your will, you will jogging a mile at a pretty impressive clip. Kaizen does it again.
Now, pick a goal of your own and draft a step-by-step plan of your own.
