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.

 Has all the easy money been made in property? Log in to the new, relaunched Property School website and view the 6 part video series “Property Investment in Uncertain Times” at no cost.   It seems like by the time something hits the news, the good times are over. By the time everyone gets into it, the easy money’s been made, the big boys are entrenched, all that’s left are the crumbs.   Is this true of property too?

During the Kaizen Challenge I have reminded myself every day that whatever image I hold before me will become my reality– that the future is in my hands. This is a tremendous realisation if you deeply meditate on it, a huge spiritual realisation. It is such a profound Read more...
