Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. The Kaizen Way by Robert Maurer. Introducing the practical and inspirational guide to incorporating Kaizen and its powerful principles into one’s daily life. Rooted in the two thousand-year-old wisdom of the Tao Te Ching–“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”–Kaizen is the art of making great and lasting change through small, steady increments. Kaizen is the tortoise versus the hare Introducing the practical and inspirational guide to incorporating Kaizen and its powerful principles into one’s daily life.

Kaizen is the tortoise versus the hare. Kaizen is the eleven Fortune companies that significantly outperformed the market through moderate, step-by-step actions. Kaizen is losing weight not by a crash diet which more often than not crashes but by eating one bite less at each meal–then, a month later, eating two bites less.

Kaizen is starting maurerr life-changing exercise program by standing–just standing–on a treadmill for one minute a day. Written by an expert on Kaizen–Dr. Robert Maurer, a psychologist on the staff at the UCLA medical school who speaks and consults nationally–“One Small Step” is the gentle but potent way to effect change.

Beginning by outlining the all-important role that fear plays in all types of change–and Kaizen’s ability to circumvent it–Dr. Maurer then explains the 7 Small Steps: He shows how to perform mind sculpture–visualizing virtual change so that real change comes more naturally.

Why small rewards motivate better than big rewards.

Lists with This Book. Feb 02, Kerfe rated it it was amazing Shelves: I think I read about Maurer’s book in Elle magazine, right when kaozen was published, in At the time I was in a big rut.

I barely managed to start fiozofia, let alone finish it. I read books a year. I “didn’t have time” to exercise, or to make anything, or even to visit a museum occasionally. I had to work; I had to do what needed to be done for my family.

The review struck a chord, so to speak, so I took the book out of the library. I mangaged somehow to read it completely through before it was due. The ideas it contains are simple, and we’ve certainly heard them stated in many different ways before.

But, as McArdle says, ” Five minutes a day–anyone can carve out that much time. So I would read on the bus or the subway. And sometimes it was only 5 or 10 minutes. I did 10 minutes on the exercise bike.

I worked on an unfinished project for 10 minutes. A few things happened. I got into the habit of doing these things. Sometimes I managed to make a bit more time for them. And even with only 10 minutes a day, I started to see real progress after a couple weeks.

All of a sudden I was far enough along that I could picture actually completely something, which made it more likely that I would.

I have not tried Kaizen to confront my fears, although Maurer gives advice and examples for that too. Recently, I ran across the book again and decided to give it another look.

Cezar Matkowski (Translator of Filozofia Kaizen. Jak mały krok może zmienić Twoje życie)

It’s hard for me to remember a time when I wasn’t reading a book a week, when I didn’t begin my day with some exercise, when I didn’t expect to finish at least some of the things I started.

Even if that moment is months away. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. But sometimes we just need to hear it again, filozifia a different voice, at kzizen right time. Jan 11, Wafaa Golden rated it really liked it Shelves: View all 12 mwurer.

This book introduces us to the Kaizen way of changing your life through small steps: This works if it’s about you as much it’s about a group of people in a business. By doing so small steps it’s almost ridiculous, we override the brain’s natural resistance and fear of changes. It’s true that there has been recommendations of breaking Rating: Fi,ozofia true that there has been recommendations of breaking changes into steps, but fi,ozofia takes it a bit smaller.

And it’s true that some people really can do big leaps – like from meat-eater to vegan – but success in this way is rather rare. The size of my book is smaller than usual, which sort of markets the smallness of Kaizen steps further: In the preface and introduction we dismantle some change myths, and talk filozodia the importance of service and gratitude, and the origins of the Kaizen way: We then outline the theory, before going through all the small-ways, and how to use each of them.


At each chapters start there is the main point immediately, them some further tips on making the steps happen.

You don’t have to do all steps with each change, though some fit well with each other. In ‘small thoughts’ we pratice success through imagination. In ‘small problems’ the point is made that we shouldn’t ignore small problems, since letting them be may end up letting them grow into big problems and nuisances like finding a new employee creating massive problems.

And in ‘small rewards’ it’s revealed how small rewards bring better results than ‘huge’ ones. I made so many notes reading this. The ending does not end very solidly, hence my rating, but even that one is positive in its slight vagueness. That said, the majority of the book is very solid, clear and helpful, and inspiring. I can see this being very helpful no matter what needs to be changed or improved, and whether kaizenn business-related or just personal improvement.

A very good book, this one. View all 4 comments.

I highly recommend this book to almost anyone. Who isn’t looking to make a change? What a terrific book! This book, written by an expert in motivation with a background in therapy, teaches the concept of kaizen, or continuous improvement. Don’t be overwhelmed by a big challenge. Attack it in teeny steps. Each day, walk forward, just one small step. And watch the big become small. From the back flap: As one client succinctly put it, ‘the steps are so small, I couldn’t fail’.

And as far as being too busy to solve a problem, learn a new skill, overcome a fear, or curb a bad habit, forget filozofai — who doesn’t have the 30 seconds it takes to get started? And a fast read, too.
