Kaizen simply means “change for better”. It refers to any improvement, large or small, that will make you better.
Improvement should not be a one-time thing. It should be a continuous thing, particularly for the martial artist. If you are not challenging yourself regularly, you are not living life to its fullest.
There are so many things that you can improve on a daily basis. Can you be a better spouse, parent, child, worker, student, martial artist, etc, etc? Of course you can, even if you are already good at all of these things. If you are getting better at the things you love, how can you not be happier and more contented?
Remember, you do not have to be the best. You just have to be your best. You owe yourself that. Therefore, for this week, target one thing per day that you will try to improve…..then go out and do it.
