With the realisation yesterday of where this blog is heading, it’s all about continually improving on 96 of 365 days of getting it done.
Kaizen – it’s Japanese for continually improving. There’s really no surprise that it has become the focus of 365 days of getting it done. My old personal training business name was Kaizen Outdoors. The motto of Kaizen Outdoors – continually improving energy, focus and movement.
What better way to get through 365 days of getting it done than continually improving daily and keeping track of the progress!
Like last night. (Now this one, it’s not going to seem like a monumental breakthrough, but it’s an insight into the fact I’ve taken the Kaizen lifestyle on board). For the last few weeks, I’d turn the light on in the bedroom when Liss and I go to bed.
WOW! What a breakthrough. Turning the light on. Okay, that’s not the point and just me trying to be funny. I’ll continue.
There’s two light switches to choose from. One near the door or one above the bed. Being a brain dead male, I automatically turn on the one near the door so when we’re both in bed and the light is still on, guess who has to get out and turn said light off?
Well not last night! With continually improving the way 365 days of getting it done in the back of my mind, I waited for Liss to go into the bedroom first and turn on the light near the bed. WINNING!
Like I said, that particular “light bulb moment (no pun intended hahahaha)” isn’t going to set the world on fire. But no monumental creation was built overnight. It takes a daily approach to actively choosing new and improved thoughts. How can we ever evolve fully if we’re not moving forward with better ways of looking at life?
Something I’ve been working on is the value we give to our observations and the negative or positive impact it has on our reactions. But my friends, that is the topic of tomorrow’s blog.
Quick question – what’s one thing you will do today that will change your tomorrow for the better?
