Much of the teaching of the Kaizen Challenge can be encapsulated in a phrase often used by my late grandmother.   Her words went over our heads, but they now make a huge amount of sense to me, and will strike a chord with all who have followed the Challenge. 
“Cast your bread upon the waters, and they shall come back sandwiches” she used to tell us.  Give to the Universe and it in turn will give to you.  Thank you Hannes, for bringing context and meaning to that delightful saying.
The Challenge has provided an awesome opportunity to contemplate and to re-evaluate life, goals and above all, attitude.  I recognize for example, that my own life has been subject to external controls.  Having been trained as an accountant, most of my thoughts and actions have been governed by the applicable “Rules” at the expense of independent thinking.  
Equally, I recognize that corporate rules are being followed slavishly with scant regard for overall strategy or even common sense.  While this creates, huge frustration when dealing with corporations, it also provides ENORMOUS OPPORTUNITY to steal a march on those colossal businesses.  This is truly where we can apply the knowledge and thinking from the Kaizen Challenge to make ourselves financially independent.
This morning, our colleague Bill, was overtaking a heavy vehicle on his way to work.  The driver took exception to being overtaken, and a broken and battered Bill now lies in the Emergency room awaiting a CAT scan to diagnose his injuries. 
With the mindset I had a few short weeks ago, it would not have been possible to do much more than provide him with sympathy and emotional support.  However now understanding the power of the Universe and of its availability to those who work with it, there is much more that can be done both for him, and for humankind.
All those years ago, our headmaster used to open assembly with the words “I shall pass this way but once, …..”. 
 It didn’t mean a lot at the time, but having aged myself, and seeing my parents becoming ever more frail, seeing my children grow up, seeing how Bill bit the dust this morning, all underline the one theme of the Kaizen Challenge – life is NOT a dress rehearsal.  It is in deadly earnest and any good that I can do needs to be done with urgency.  That is the road to true wealth, where money used wisely is but a powerful enabler.
Thank you for a truly enervating experience that will be with me for …….LIFE.

Unbelievable.... I started the challenge on 4 June 2007. I was having a "bad" day, I was negative, short tempered,  over-all just in a bad space... Blaming everyone for my problems.... Playing games on my phone in stead of focusing, reading Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-09-11 Success story: from PA to webmaster A couple of months ago Netta, my personal assistant, had the same computer skills as most people. She used a computer every day but was not a programmer or IT expert. She did the basic Build A Web course (www.build-a-web.com) because she liked the idea of being able to create her own website in less than an hour. It didn’t cost her anything, and she enjoyed it. A week or so ago she was able to take over as webmaster on my... Read more...

To think back 49 days is to realize “that you do not know what you don’t know”!  To now, for the first time in my life, discover the truth and nothing but the truth, is fantastic!  We know that the oldest trick the devil uses, is to take the truth and twist it a little bit – I call it the hamburger effect:  Nice, attractive lies, the twisted truth, covered by some more nice, attractive lies….and we fall for it every time? Read more...
