Kaizen – Small steps, Continuous Improvement

Kaizen (改善) is the Japanese word for "improvement". In business, kaizen refers to activities that continually improve all functions and involve all employees from the CEO to the assembly line workers.

In our personal life, Kaizen is the practice of continuous improvement.
One of the most notable features of kaizen is that big results come from many small changes accumulated over time. However, this has been misunderstood to mean that kaizen equals small changes.  While the majority of changes may be small, the greatest impact comes from the accumulation and increase in the Velocity of change over time - large leaps toward your goals.

If you find that your lists of tasks and goals appear to large to ever accomplish anything Kaizen may be the answer.
