Kaizen is a philosophy of improvement.

It analyzes processes and suggests ways to make them better.

As I understand it, Kaizen assumes that perfection can never be reached. We can always develop. We can always improve. We can always evolve what we’re doing to be better and better versions of ourselves. We adapt.

You can’t say, “I’m doing my best,” because there isn’t a “best”. Best means the work is done. Best means the end.

Not that you aren’t perfect. You are.

I’m talking about the expression of you. I’m suggesting that you can constantly improve the way you’re manifesting yourself as evidenced by the work you output.

How can you do what you’re doing, but better?
