Translated from the Japanese, “Kaizen” means “improvement, a change for the better.” This technique was born in Japan after the Second World War, under the influence of American techniques and traditions of self-organization. The main advantage of kaizen techniques is its maximum specificity and consistency. All the goals you set for yourself, starting with prosaic (clean house) to the global (gain financial prosperity, high status, to succeed in the work), have to be understand systematically will all the points. Another important feature of it – awareness. The basis of Kaizen – guiding questions to ask yourself periodically. To begin, select any goal that you would like to achieve.
Suppose you want to learn how to bake delicious cupcakes. Ask yourself: What concrete step I can take to get closer to the goal? Avoid questions that can not be answered just as specific. For example, before writing this blog, I asked myself: “What specific useful idea I want to express with the help of this blog?”. The answer was clear: “I want to say that kaizen – a convenient way to organize your thinking in such a way as to consistently achieve your goals.”
Write down your question and ask it yourself regularly, the best – in the same time. Write down the answer, giving yourself some time to think. Do not try to come up with something clever and significant. If all else fails – write the first thing that comes to your mind. You need to fix nny answers that are born during the day. Remember that your brain can not find an answer only in the process of working on the task, but also at time when you are busy with other things at all, or even sleep.Once a week, spend an inspection: if this issue still relevant? Perhaps you have already learned how to cook delicious cupcakes and want to move on to more complex dishes? Or do you want to apply your knowledge at practice? Then it would be more appropriate to ask: “What can I do to demonstrate my culinary talents to others?”
