Kaizening Life is the ultimate life-improvement game changer!

Privately Inspired People

I love my work at Happy Living!

For the last nine and a half months, I’ve been preparing an agenda and leading thought-provoking discussions with Privately Inspired People twice a month. This is an invitation-only group that we created to provide an environment full of ideas, encouragement, and support to help one another take inspired action to live our one wild and precious life to its fullest, because…

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17 

Kaizening Life

The focus of our meeting on Thursday, September 14, 2023, is Kaizening Life. Kaizening Life is based on a beautiful Japanese idea that small incremental improvements add up over time to yield great big results. I love it because it’s based on mindset, not circumstance. Kaizening life is knowing there’s always something I can do better tomorrow than today. It creates an optimistic, gentle but powerful, and continuous uplifting of my life; day after day after day.

We’ll spend our time together discussing three aspects of Kaizening Life.

  1. Continuously
  2. Endlessly
  3. Big things, and small

1️⃣ Continuously. Kaizening Life involves a commitment to an ongoing journey of self-improvement. It’s not a one-time effort but a continuous process where we strive to identify areas of their life that can be enhanced. It’s a realization that there is always something we can improve upon, whether in health, habits, skills, or attitude. As one improvement is incorporated into daily life, attention shifts to the next, creating a cycle of perpetual growth. This ensures that we remain engaged in our personal development, always seeking new ways to refine and elevate our experiences. #Kaizen #ContinuousImprovement #PersonalDevelopment

2️⃣ Endlessly. Kaizening Life recognizes that the possibilities for self-improvement are virtually limitless. As we learn and evolve, and practice and adapt, new opportunities for improvements emerge. This reflects the ever-changing nature of life itself. With each improvement we make, we gain another layer of understanding of ourselves or our environment, taking us to places we might not have previously considered. Kaizening Life can be applied to physical, mental, financial, spiritual, and virtually every aspect of our lives, enabling a holistic approach to life improvement that continues to unfold over time. Kaizening Life is thus an endless journey, as there is no final destination but rather an endless exploration of ways to optimize our lives. #PhysicalFitness #MentalFitness #FinancialFitness #SpiritualFitness

3️⃣ Big things, and small. Kaizening Life applies to improving things of every size. It’s not limited by the magnitude of the change but instead encourages us to tackle both big and small improvements with equal enthusiasm. While some improvements might involve significant transformations or great big achievements, others could be as simple as adjusting a daily routine or adopting a healthier habit. By encompassing big things, and small, Kaizening Life creates a gentle but powerful, and continuous uplifting of our lives, allowing us to see daily progress while maintaining an endless, lifelong journey of self-improvement. #KaizeningLife #GameChanger #SelfImprovement

In preparation for our meetings, I generally recommend that each member ponders over a quote or two and does a little bit of light homework (reading a blog post or two and sometimes viewing a video, too). This is the prep work for our September 14, 2023 meeting.

PONDERABLES

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”

Johann von Goethe

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”

Unknown winemaker

“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.”

Confucius
