Progress, Not Perfection


The Japanese term “Kaizen” is made up of two characters: Kai (or change) and Zen (or good), in this way, Kaizen means change for the good or the better. The term is often used in business contexts as shorthand for practices and techniques for continuous improvement. It is a useful business tool for improving an organization and it is a valuable model for personal growth and development.

The accomplishment of goals is admirable and can bring a great sense of personal achievement. But, even when you have no specific goal, you can cultivate a mindset of continuous improvement in your daily life; striving for progress each day, not perfection.

Continuous improvement has no goal, no end.
