A great saying for those wanting to work towards any goal: “A jug fills drop by drop” (Buddha)… this rightly suggests that you have to take some action everyday to achieve your dreams. Difficult concept in our modern world where we expect everything right now, for minimal effort.
The Japanese have a very neat word for this concept, something which I almost want to get tattooed across my forehead to help me remember that making life changes are a long term game: Kaizen. It is defined as:
“improvement”, or “change for the better” and it refers to philosophy or practices that focus upon continuous improvement of processes in manufacturing, engineering, game development, and business management”
So the good news is, your daily actions do not have to necessarily be big actions, but doing small incremental steps daily towards your life goal means you will get there!
