Kaizen: Do What You Can Do Today

By Jon Miller Published on June 30th, 2008

Some of the best kaizen ideas can be truly very little things. It is the accumulation of small changes daily that give us the habit of coming up with creative ideas.
If you don’t have on in your mind already, within the next few minutes you will have a small improvement idea. Pay attention to it and don’t dismiss it as too small. If it’s a small enough idea, you can do it today.
Nineteenth century English clergyman and author Sydney Smith said, “It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little.”
This is as much as I have time for today. A little, but better than nothing. With kaizen, tomorrow will be a better day.
