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.

Shjoe! Where can I start? The best place to start is to thank Christ for his mercy and at the same time for living in me and that I shouldn't see the Holy Spirit as an external force but part of me in every possible way I can Read more...

I have always realized that it is important to live a balanced life but I must be honest that until I did this program I never truly understood just how important it is and what a difference it makes. For starters I could see the effects physically. For the first time in a long time I managed to get into the habit of Read more...

Profound - Truly Profound - It's a word I use sparingly; but if I look back seven or less years from now, gratefully, financially free, retired, working on getting rich further in mind, body, soul I will cite this tool, this way of life, practicing, improving Read more...

It’s a strange feeling being different. You are aware of how you used to be but also how you are now....This is how I feel after the challenge. I know how I used to react to things & how I used to feel about them, but I know choose to feel & act differently. My day starts at 05:30. take a shower & get dressed. I then pray with my wife & leave for work. When I get to the office, I close my door & meditate. For 30 min I shut the world out & spend time... Read more...

Wow, what an incredible journey!  I started the challenge during a very busy time in my life, but I decided to start when I received the email about it instead of putting it off until a ‘quieter’ time because there probably would never be a ‘quieter’ time and I didn’t want Read more...
