  • A Japanese Technique To Overcome Laziness

  • From time to time all of us set ourselves a new goal, or challenge and just as often in the end

  • We fail to achieve them. You end up telling yourself that you are not ready yet, that you will do it next week,

  • next month, or even next year.

  • Why do we give up so easily?

  • The answer is fairly obvious.

  • We try to achieve our goals too much and too fast. We get sick of the new responsibility,

  • And it's tough to change old habits and try something new. As a result, you get tired and bored very quickly.

  • How To Stop Procrastinating?

  • This is a great solution to overcome laziness and achieve anything you wish.

  • This method takes less than a minute and results are quite impressive.

  • The technique is called Kaizen, or the 1-minute principle.

  • Kaizen originated in Japan, and it is something that anyone can attempt in any sphere of their life.

  • In Japan, for instance, it's often applied to improve management techniques. The word itself contains two roots:

  • Kai (change) and Zen (wisdom). It means you shouldn't change your life spontaneously, but slowly and wisely.

  • The new habit should occur as a result of your reflection and life experience.

  • This method was invented by Masaaki Imai who believes this philosophy can be applied

  • just as successfully to the world of business as it can be to one's personal life.

  • How does this method work?

  • In Japanese culture, the practice of Kaizen

  • includes the concepts of the 1-minute principle for self-improvement.

  • At the heart of this method is the idea that you should practice doing something for a single minute

  • every day at the same time just for a minute no more.

  • It shouldn't be any trouble for absolutely anyone, right?

  • Even the laziest person can carry out a given task for such a small amount of time.

  • We usually find an excuse not to do something when faced with carrying the task out for 30 minutes or an hour a day

  • However, you should be able to do it for at least 60 seconds without any misgivings.

  • Why does the method work?

  • At first glance this practice might seem doubtful and ineffective for people who have grown up in

  • Western culture that claims the idea that you can only achieve your goals by undertaking enormous efforts. However,

  • it's not true at all.

  • Challenging programs of self-improvement that deprive you of vast amounts of energy can end up

  • exhausting you and leave

  • no tangible results.

  • Whether it's doing push-ups or studying a foreign language the task won't seem like something unpleasant that you have to get through.

  • Instead it will become an activity that brings you joy and satisfaction

  • Take one little step at a time and you will move on the path of self perfection.

  • The one minute principle lets you see the progress you're making and it's a critical part of forming new habits.

  • It's important to overcome that lack of confidence

  • You might have in your abilities as well as free yourself from guilt and helplessness.

  • You need to experience a sense of victory and success to move forward.

  • The moment those feelings inspire you you will gradually begin to

  • increase the amount of time you spend on the goal that you have set for yourself.

  • Maybe at first just for five minutes more, but this will soon turn into half an hour and then even longer.

  • All you have to do is understand what it is

  • you want to achieve and start doing it for just a minute every single day.
