Your Guide to Continuous Improvement Rituals

Your Guide to Continuous Improvement Rituals: Kaizen is often used to describe the process of continuous improvement. That means making lots of small changes on a regular basis in order to ultimately improve the operation on a larger scale. It's often applied to business and particularly to things like manufacturing and engineering.

But it can also be applied to your own personal goals. If you take the approach of continuous improvement – of making lots of tiny little changes in your life on a regular basis – then over time you'll be able to 'upgrade' every single aspect of your life and in a few years you can be in a whole different place.

Continuous Improvement Rituals:
How to Use the Process

So how does this actually look once you start using it? How do you take this idea and turn it into a reliable blueprint that you can follow?

A good place to start would be at the beginning. So look for one small change you can make to your lifestyle that can help to serve you in some tiny way in achieving your goal.

Let's say you need more time. Perhaps then the thing you need is to get more sleep. So maybe you want to wake up half an hour later. So why not buy yourself a steamer and save a lot of time ironing? Or replace all your shirts with ones that don't have to be ironed.

That's a tiny change you've made – switching your shirts – but the result is half an hour of extra sleep. That's a huge difference to your energy levels throughout the day.

What else do you need to achieve your goals? If you need a little more money then perhaps you could look for a way to save $1 a day. $1 a day is a tiny thing to have to change, so maybe it just means that you have a cup of tea in the morning instead of a coffee, or get off the bus one stop earlier.

Now you have 30 minutes of extra sleep and an additional $20 a week. Those are two tiny changes but they've just made it much easier for you to accomplish anything else you want to in your life because you have more energy and more money… What else might be possible?

What do continuous improvement rituals feel like? How do you feel when you're performing at your best?

For many of us the answer would be a combination of energy, focus and good mood. If you're interested in being healthier then you should focus on these things because not only will you feel healthier immediately, but you'll also then have more energy and drive to stick to whatever other health programs or objectives you're setting yourself.

To achieve these kinds of small improvements, the best strategy to take is to focus on making small, cumulative changes that will build up over time. By gradually improving yourself with smaller goals you will find each change is easier to make and that you experience less resistance. These small changes then add up and provide you with more large scale success.

So what are some little changes you can make to start enjoying more energy, drive and health right now? Here are just a few continuous improvement rituals to start:

·       Swap your coffee for a health drink – Do you drink coffee every morning on the way to work? Not only is this likely to cause tolerance and dependence for caffeine (making you groggier in the mornings) but it also means you'll be missing out on the opportunity to get some health drinks in you. Try swapping this for a vegetable juice and see how much better you feel for all those vitamins and minerals.

·       Remove the sugar from your tea – This will not only reduce your calories and carbohydrate intake, it will also help you to get rid of your sweet tooth.

·       Set the alarm forward 10 minutes – Ten minutes more sleep makes all the difference in the world. It's hard to convince yourself to go to bed earlier, but giving yourself an extra ten minutes in the morning can make all the difference.

·       Sit at the table when you eat – Sit at the sofa when you eat and you'll feel lethargic and not want to get up.

·       Swap your socks – It sounds funny, but swap your socks for fresh ones halfway through the day and you feel energized!

·       Take calls outside – If you're on your mobile why not use this opportunity to pace around a little and get some fresh air? Just a little fresh air makes a huge difference.

·       Wear brighter colors – Bright colors make others see you as more energetic, which means they treat you as more energetic, which makes you more energetic.

Countless studies tell us that people resist extreme change. That is to say that if you think you can wake up one morning and become a highly disciplined individual, then you're in for a big surprise.

In order for change to be successful it must be incremental and it must be holistic. You have to change every aspect of yourself and your lifestyle to support yourself in the pursuit of your new goals. To do this, you need to make small, manageable changes. Begin your continuous improvement rituals today by making just one small change.

     Your attempt may fail but never fail to make an attempt!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size of rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
