How to make progress on your goals using Kaizen or small improvements / changes on a daily basis.

Failed to Blog Consistently – Oops!

Since my last post ‘Blogging by Kaizen’ I have failed to do what I have said I would do.  I anticipated blogging on a daily basis.  At the moment I find that too difficult due to work commitments.  I am also writing my book and that is going well.  I am certainly using Kaizen there – I write for 30 minutes per day.  I have now decided to blog on a weekly basis – every Saturday and see how that goes.  Perhaps later I can decide to blog more often – perhaps twice per week.

Blogging by Kaizen

One of the principles I intend to use in developing this blog is the Japanese principle of Kaizen.  Kaizen means small daily improvements.  I intend to add small daily improvements to this blog which over time will hopefully amount to substantial improvements/progress.  I intend to invest about 20-30 minutes of my time on a daily basis on the blog and see where this leads to.  A good time to review progress will be at the end of 2013.  I have read a number of good books on Kaizen and I will review them here soon.  In my experience the principle of Kaizen is very useful and also very powerful.  One very good book on the principle of Kaizen that I can recommend to get you started is called “The Slight Edge (Revised Edition): Turning Simple Disciplines Into Massive Success” by Jeff Olson.  When you click on the above link it will take you to the book on Amazon and you will see the book has received very positive feedback.
