A great little book, written with the authenticity of one who has discovered kaizen (meaning change for the better) almost unintentionally, while taking time out in Japan from a hectic publishing consultant role in London - a philosophy of gentle and sustainable steps rather than radical and unsustainable changes. Enshrined over 30 years ago as a pillar of Japanese manufacturing development, and still widely practised in Japan, kaizen is brought into the realm of daily life by Sarah Harvey. Perfect for pretty much anyone!
From Marie Kondo to Hygge to Ikigai, in recent years philosophies to help people live better lives have taken the world by storm. This beautifully colour illustrated and photographed book offers a way to build good habits and remove bad ones, without being too hard on yourself along the way. The focus is on having patience, shaping solutions for yourself rather than following others and not giving up when things aren’t working. Rather than being critical of your faults, the emphasis is on mindful, positive change. Well-known in the business and sports worlds as a method for mapping incremental goals, Kaizen is also a wonderful tool for slowly improving aspects of your life, without feeling daunted or overwhelmed by the challenge.
