We all want to improve our lives, but it can be difficult to know where to start. My philosophy is a philosophy that is all about making small, everyday changes that will have a big impact on your life.
This is heavily influenced by the Japanese philosophy of kaizen and applying that mindset to everything I do. Applying a kaizen mindset to your life means making small, everyday changes that will help you work your personal strategy and move toward your professional pursuit.
These changes might be something as simple as waking up earlier, drinking more water, taking a walk more regularly or making changes to the way you execute your daily tasks.
You don’t need to make drastic changes to your life in order to see results and improvement—in fact, you’re more likely to achieve success if you take things slow and steady.
Here is one thing you can do today to help you make improvements to your daily routine:
Start keeping track of where your time is going. We often complain about not having enough time or that we will do that thing whenever we get around to it. So start studying your calendar and you will find that you do actually have time after all, it just doesn’t seem like it because you aren’t focused on it.
Could it be that we are just waiting for a “round 2 it” instead? If that is the case, consider yourself to have found one now, now apply the law of GOYA (Get Off Your Ass) and start studying.
