The path to success does not lie in a more, bigger and faster mentality

We live in a world where everyone seems to think that the path to success lies in the more, bigger and faster mentality. What ends up happening with that type of thinking is actually a lot of wasteful things.

Waste such as increased inventories, increased cost, time lost working on things that don’t actually matter to our clients, and the list can go on.

When I think about trying to create more work:life harmony I think about the ways that I can reduce wasteful things in my workflow.

Reducing unnecessary meetings, or unnecessary spending on things that aren’t useful or moving me closer to my vision and pursuit that I have set for myself. 

The Japanese have a word 勿体無い (mottainai) which is often translated: “No waste”, “What a waste” or an expression of regret at the full value of something not being put to good use.

We often fail to realize that when we try to intentionally get more or go bigger or go faster we end up getting less, shrinking smaller and going slower.

The path to actualizing increase lies more in learning to step back and reflect and assess. Something many of us fail to do in our current environment.

Most CI Professionals are spending their time putting out fires or chasing down the next best thing.  There is a better way, if you would like to learn a different way to approach your workflow let me know.

I’m looking for 5 Continuous Improvement Professionals who want to be a part of a Case Study where you will learn how to build a personal workflow strategy.

Step by step I’ll show you exactly what to do. It’s simple and it works. This isn’t a DIY self-paced course, this is going to be live 1:1 and group calls.

We start the week of March 7, 2022.
