I signed up because I wanted to make sure that I did not miss out on anything that could be of value to me, and because of the title which said “Challenge”. I love challenges as well as challenging the status quo, actually, anything that has the potential to overcome the gravitational pull of popular belief or conditioning of the masses.

 
I knew, or rather suspected that The Kaizen Challenge would challenge the way I think, and what I believe, so I made sure from Day 1 that I allocated enough time to look, listen, think and learn. Structuring my daily routine, or budgeting my time was the difficult part because my quiet time had become overgrown and needed serious pruning and clearing – I realized that I had nearly 22 years of encroaching thought patterns and bad habits to clear out.
 
Tonight, after I sat down to do the homework I spent a while recalling my past as they do in the “Survivor” series… well I did not celebrate tonight because I already celebrated yesterday, after my God moved a HUGE mountain out of our way. Regarding television, I still watch a limited amount of television, roughly between 5 and 6 hours per week, which I expect will decrease even more. However, my response to my recollection of my Before TV days was “Eish”, yes with plenty eish.
 
Way back then I had discovered the benefit of order in my personal life. I had managed to maintain the discipline of silence, using “prime time” for this purpose – at that stage I only watched Magnum (on an old Sony someone “donated”) and Tom had a green Ferrari (yes green, because the TV was seriously ill). I used at least an hour in the morning and an hour at night for my Quiet Time. And then I had the TV fixed.
 
Yes with plenty eish! I have been doing a massive spring cleaning. No more eish please, back to basics. I was on the right track, yet I doubted myself. All in the mind. Eventually I allowed compromise to come into my life: I started doing things the “other” people were talking about so that they would stop looking at me as if I were weird because I was sometimes clueless regarding the news and latest gossip – which left me with less time, but more to talk about.
 
The rest is history. The future is yet to come, but boy is it bright (and as it is now 12:00 AM I will probably forfeit any bonus points, but so what, I enjoyed the ride!) Seizing the day is what I will be doing for the rest of my days.
 
Lastly I would like to thank you. You have served a purpose in my life at the right time and for that I am grateful. And here ends my homework.

What does this mean to most people? * It means you have to work harder just to stay in one place. (Does that explain how you’ve been feeling?). * It means you can’t just save your money, you must find ways to grow it faster than inflation. * It means your pension won’t support you.

Where to start that is the question? There have been so many changes since I started this challenge. I think the best place to start will be from the beginning.   I first discovered Hannes's web site "property school" on my search for property investments and Read more...

This realization has released such energy via thought, that one occasional still fall back on the idea that this might just be a dream. This however is clearly shattered with numerous small examples of the visualization to realization process which confirms the process in hard “personal” evidence. The realization that the God live in you and your are Read more...
