An exciting book that builds off of the gentle Japanese technique of ‘kaizen’, a method that many Japanese organizations have used over the years to achieve their business goals and maintain organizational excellence. Written in a simple and easy -to-follow flow, this book by author Robert Maurer, clinical psyschologist and former faculty at UCLA and Washington University, can help you realize your personal dreams in a similar way. The lessons in this book are contrary to almost any other ‘change’ method currently out there. While there are certainly cases of successful changes happening thanks to big, radical steps. However, most of the time, when people want to make a lifestyle change, fear prevents them from taking the big life-changing steps necessary. Kaizen uses an approach that ‘tip-toes’ around the fear, “presenting ideas for change in a way that virtually melts your brain’s resistance and makes it impossible for it to not do what you want it to do”. A highly readable book that provides successful strategies and insights into everyday challenges.
