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 the paper in stead of doing my job (And still wondered why things weren't going my way!!!)

I thought to myself that this really wasn’t the right day to start but since I put that date down to start, I should just as well do it…I signed in and started my first lesson.... Little did I know that I was taking the first step of an unbelievable, life changing journey!
I started off small: Didn't play games on my phone anymore, took the stairs in stead of the lift, etc. but my goals grew as I became more positive... I started slowly concentrating on the types of thought crossing through my mind. I stopped listening to the news on the radio. I stopped reading the negative articles in the newspaper every morning. I then found myself consciously changing my wording in my sentences when I spoke to people to positives in stead of negatives.
I started focusing on tasks at hand at work… Being more positive just made everyone I dealt with more positive. I started closing deals, one after the other!
My wife immediately saw the change in me.
I was driving home one afternoon (11 July – round about day 30 something) and I remember thinking to myself: Why is it that when we can control everything around us, do I still have to smoke? You must know that I smoked between 20 and 30 per day…. I got home and said to my wife that I have 3 cigarettes left and then I am quitting. I couldn’t really read her thoughts but something told me she wasn’t too sure whether I could do it this time. I literally finished my last smoke that evening, threw away the packet, said my prayer to ask God for the assistance – AND THAT WAS THAT!!!!!!!!! I said to a few people after that that it was actually scary how easy it was this time: I just reminded myself that this is good for me, others and the greater Good every time I had a craving and it just went away!
I can honestly say that the KAIZEN challenge changed my life.
I will continue this from here. I have already set out a plan as to do my quiet time in the mornings, to read a motivational peace every morning, set my goals and live the Kaizen way!!!
Thank you Hannes Dreyer and the Kaizen Challenge for an unbelievable experience! Thank you for opening my eyes to a world that is being kept from us by the world! Thank you for showing me that there is so much more to life than rushing around like rats, chasing money!!!!
Thank for making me realize that life truly is a journey and that we have to take responsibility for ourselves.....

Hier is my opdrag vir die Kaizen uitdaging les 49. Ek glo dat jy dit seker in Engels sou verkies, maar alhoewel ek goed tweetalig is, sal ek nie reg aan die opdrag kan laat geskied as ek dit nie in Afrikaans doen nie. Ek weet jy verkies dat dit nie minder as 400 woorde moet wees nie en indien ek dit nie maak nie, sal dit bloot wees omdat Read more...

Today, I stand at the end of my 49 days of the Kaizen Challenge and in a way I am sad as this has become the pivot around which I created my daily routine and business tasks. This is the first time ever in my life that I have stuck to a plan for 49 days! I used to get started on a specific plan all motivated & excited, only to loose Read more...

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 Read more...
