What is the Kaizen method?

How many times have we said to ourselves? "from Monday I start the diet "," next week I quit smoking " or "Next month without fail I joined the gym"? Unfortunately, sometimes laziness and laziness are stronger than us at the time of making any decision.

However, this has a solution. The Japanese developed decades ago what is known as " Kaizen method"A technique that will help us to give us that initial push that we sometimes need so much at the time of taking action. This term comes from the Japanese words "Kai" (change) and "Zen" (wisdom) Alluding to the fact that through changes, we can become people with much more initiative.

The best of all is that this method can be applied in any area of ​​our life, even in the professional. In fact, thanks to the Kaizen method, the Japanese have become one of the most effective people in their respective jobs.

The minute rule

We will start by explaining this method saying that its execution is the simplest. You just need to set an objective, a goal that you can achieve at least once a day. After this, you just have to put it into practice for a minute.

Is not it a long time, right? Start reading a book, memorize a sentence in another language, do push-ups ... These are all things that can be done in sixty seconds. And therefore, they will not need much effort on our part when it comes to carrying them out.

When you've been a couple of days, sure sooner or later that little voice appears that tells you "Stop doing that, it's too lazy!"Breaking a bit with our comfort zone can lead to a multitude of internal duels. However, when we overcome them before, before we can get rid of laziness and laziness.

Once you take a month with this practice, surely when you do something during that minute, you will feel really good with yourselves and I am sure that a great satisfaction goes through all of your

This will give you the strength to face future challenges

Many Westerners have the preconceived idea that you can not achieve great goals through small efforts. Through Kaizen we do not want to tell you that overnight you will see the results. It is a slow process, which needs a lot of time and effort on your part.

The important thing is to be constant. Not giving up. Do not let laziness grow stronger than us. Otherwise we are bound to fail and we will have no choice but to "start over from scratch". And you do not want this, right?

For all these reasons it is very important to start little by little. With every minute you spend you will become a stronger person. Every sixty seconds that pass you will be closer to your final goal. You may have to spend thousands of these seconds. But we are sure that in the end you will see the results.

From here on, you only have to set more ambitious goals. You will only have to convert the minutes into hours. The hours in days. And the days in months. In this way what you previously saw as impossible, will have become a goal you have made for yourself. Do you know the amount of self-esteem and confidence in yourself that all this will entail? In short, remember that goals are dreams that have a delivery date and it is up to you to complete them on time. This article is published for informational purposes only.
