From the Inside Flap
Unleash the potent force of kaizen, the Japanese technique of achieving great and lasting success through small, steady steps. Whether the goal is as specific as getting more sleep or as broad as meeting the love of your life, kaizen works because it melts away resistance—in particular, the "fight-or-flight" brain chemistry behind people’s underlying fear of change.
An expert on the art of success, Dr. Robert Maurer has helped countless people and businesses use kaizen to reach their objectives and maintain excellence. Distilling its secrets, Dr. Maurer shows not only how and why kaizen works, but how to make it work for you—how to position yourself for change and make your life more effective, whether at home or in the office; how to address personal changes and career changes; how to realize ambitions by sidestepping any impediments.
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 it—who doesn't have the 30 seconds it takes to get started?
The road to a life of continuous improvement begins with a single step.

This short, easy-to-read, easy-to-digest book tells you how to do it. It combines stories and scientific data to simply explain why we struggle to change. We come to understand the neurological programming we all have that interferes with change, then we get to find out how to subvert it - in a way that is almost silly in how effortless it is. This technique has a Japanese name - "kaizen" - and, the Japanese were simply the first ones to give a name to, and focus on, something that smart people have used for centuries around the world. Now we can all replicate what we know instinctively makes sense.
I will be using these techniques for the rest of my life, for sure. I will also be recommending this book to many of my clients who are looking to shift their direction and their lives.

I'm an executive and life coach, and the philosophy espoused in this book fits perfectly with the approaches I already use with clients. What I love about this book is that the author lays out a very good argument for small changes. I first read this book with my Mastermind group, and have subsequently used it with clients to help them "get" the concept in their head, even as I was working using this approach to help them shift habits/behavior.
