A Quote for life!

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

Kaizen, in your life

Every day I spend makes me feel that there is so much to be done. I have done so less. Life is moving steadily and surely, no doubt; but there is ample scope of improvement - improvements in my personal life and improvements in my professional life. Kaizen, a quality tool that talks about ‘consistent and continuous improvement’ is relevant, helpful and important in all realms of life – be it in office or at home or anywhere that one travels or ventures in. We need to improve and there should be a inherent fire within all of us to better ourselves.

I really believe that the biggest competitor one can have is himself. There are lots of ideas that come to a lot of people – ideas that can take people to heaven or to hell. People, who have taken these ideas far by acting on them and improving the same over time has risen. Countries that had more and more of these kinds of people have also risen. If we all pledge today that we will move towards improvements, towards goodness, towards light, there is nothing that would stop our country from rising. Then, if that happens, no one (be that the president of the biggest state in the world) can come and stand on our land and say or try to decide whether we are developed or we are still developing. It would be visible to all and all will talk in sync and talk only good about us, our country!

I remember one of my close friends in college saying, ‘remember, you are better than the best.’ I never understood it more than today, when I know what he meant. It is also telling to better yourself, to fight against yourself, the biggest competitor that you would ever have.

I saw a movie recently, which talks about this, in a different way. It says that every person has two choices in life – one that takes him to heaven and the other that takes him to hell. That is all about it. It is time we take the right decision at the right time. Think, think and think more and get all the ideas in you come out of your mind and put them in black and white. List them out. Do an analysis and find the one which would best suit you. Initiate and plan on it and act. Get that done and that idea going! Once done, take a deep breath and chuck it off! That is all about it… go to the next one now. Improve the one that you have done. Act on it again. And the circle goes on and on. That is all that Kaizen tells you to do. Not only with the reports that you send at the end of the day in office, but also try to improve your habits, your cooking, your skills in hitting a par, your blogging – continuously. Improve yourself and you will find nothing, absolutely, is unachievable.

All the best!
