Kaizen — a Japanese term meaning “continuous improvement”. The kaizen philosophy teaches one how to work smarter, not harder. Utilizing scientific methods to perform experiments, it teaches you how to spot and eliminate waste in a business process.
As online business entrepreneurs, how can this concept help us?
First, by continually improving business processes, you will become more efficient at what you do. Efficiency helps you to eliminate overly hard work, and focus on what you like to do that benefits your business the most. For example, by committing to do one thing per day for your business, by the end of one year you will have accomplished 365 things to improve or further your business. that’s 365 steps closer to your goal!
Apply the philosophy of Kaizen to your life and your business, and learn how to Keep It Simple, Stupid (K.I.S.S.). If you focus on one thing at a time, you will find that feeling of being overwhelmed will simply disappear.
Kaizen! (what a great word.)
