Kaizen is the Japanese word for continuous improvement. The two Japanese words Kai and Zen translate to “change” and “good.” Put together, they mean – “change good” or change for better.
It’s a simple and powerful motto for two reasons. First, whether you’re frustrated or elated, you can always choose to change for the better. And, second, it underscores the need for us to change – continuously.
And, needless to say, it comes with a 100% “it will change your life” guarantee.
The question for us, then – are we going to hear the word “kaizen,” nod and walk away?
Or, are we going to adopt Kaizen and all that it entails in our lives?
