Demonstration of The Kaizen Sheet Method
What gets measured gets managed.
If you find a way to track and measure the work you’re doing, it’s almost impossible for you to not make progress.
Awareness is one of the most powerful words ever. Well, it’s a boring word, but awareness represents is your most important weapon. You don’t need anyone to be angry at you for failing to act. Awareness is enough. You know within yourself what the right thing is. You don’t need any fear-based motivation to do it.
In order to the right thing you don’t have fear a scenario of what happens if you don’t. You just need to know that it’s simply the right thing. You don’t have to fear what’ll happen if you punch someone. You just have to know what happens if you punch someone. We learned enough from fear when we grew up. Now we know more than we need to know.
With the Kaizen method you’re putting awareness on the part of your life you want to improve in. Approaching is a measurable activity.
The width of this exercise is not limited to approaching. If there’s any action you’d like to see yourself doing, measure how often you’re failing and succeeding to act.
Here’s the other great thing about this method… it’s inspiration-based.
