With apologies to Bob Dylan

“Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the TEM$ they are a-changin”

For me the greatest lesson to be learned during the Kaizen Challenge can be
summarized in that classic (albeit slightly modified) first verse by Bob Dylan.
 It is imperative that in order to grow and learn, one has to set aside the TIME.
Time is nothing if you’re doing nothing, so put in some EFFORT.
Use that effort to slowly change your MINDSET to that of a Wealth Creator,
and at the same time be willing to INVEST IN YOURSELF FIRST.
As far as the actual challenge goes I found I did struggle with consistency.
Ideally I’d liked to have started at the same time and same place every morning in order to build a habit, but Corporate Aviation has other ideas and with 5am departures and constantly changing destinations, it was a challenge to say the least. But I persisted, and made certain that each daily task was accomplished.
The trick now is to maintain the momentum and continually build on those qualities required to stay on top of the game. Like someone that trains hard to do the Argus Cycle Tour or the Comrades Marathon, it’s very easy to rest on ones laurels having accomplished such a challenge, and in effect go straight back to the “rat-race” mentality. I am about to start the Kaizen Challenge from the start again, and indeed again after that, if that’s what it’ll take to make me a habitual “thinker”.
Already I find myself spending more time in the day contemplating my own life path than reading newspapers that sell only doom and gloom and depression, but it still needs work.
In conclusion: I find myself healthier, happier and in love with life. The relationship between my wife and son and I is stronger than ever and the positive vibrations appear to be oozing out of the walls of our home. My 10 year old son is already showing signs of an eagerness to learn more as I use Kaizen principles to teach him life’s truly valuable lessons.

The Kaizen Challenge, was it life changing? I would like to think of it as mind changing, because that is where it all starts, and that is how it becomes life changing. A lot of things however have already changed. The biggest for Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-08-21 If you’re gold, for goodness’ sake, glitter! Remember the story last week about the woman who was gold to her boss, but he never noticed? He treated her like nothing special, and she left. And that was when he realized for the first time that she was an angel in disguise. She was gold, but he hadn’t noticed. He really lost out, but how about her? She did too. She left with nothing. After 20 years of building someone else’s business. Why?... Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-06-26 Inside information nobody else will tell you about a website There have been 800 or so questions asked and answered on www.build-a-web.com. Many are about the course itself, but many others are relevant to any website. So if you have a website or plan to create one, you might find some of the information really useful!
