The Kaizen Approach to Achieving Your Biggest Goal (The Philosophy of Incremental Progress)
Kaizen, which means continuous improvement in Japanese was originally developed by Depression-Era management gurus in the US. The Japanese embraced the idea of improving and thriving in small steps, as opposed to working on a BHAG (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal).
The long, hard process looks difficult but is actually easy if we just focus on the small step that needs to be taken today, and do that consistently.
