Treat life as art, be an artist always improving on what you do.
Life is what we make of it, we are the artist creating our life each moment of the day. Life is our art, and all that we do is a process that is creating that art. The artist is always refining their process, improving upon their art, a creative life is one that is always improving. Regardless of your current life you can improve your life for the better each new day.
Prosperity is a goal of many, that of being happy, healthy and abundant; a goal which is a state of being that each individual creates through every thought, word and action of each day in harmony with self, others and nature. Each individual follows a process in which to achieve their goals, this process can always be improved upon.
David Kanigan in his blog “The Relentless Reviser” mentioned the concept of Kaizen. Meaning in Japanese “good change” Kaizen is better described in English as “continuous improvement”. By following Kaizen each individual reviews their life processes in relation to their goals looking for small improvements each day which helps them achieve their goals faster, efficiently and effectively. A.T. Bui recently added to this concept of Kaizen in his blog yesterday called “The 80/20 Principle”:
“80% of the people and activities in your life contribute to only 20% of its value, while a select 20% of people and activities contribute to 80% of its value.”
In other words 80% of your life is junk that won’t help you in achieving your goals. Through Kaizen you can review your life processes in relation to your goals and remove some of this junk that hinders your goals. For example television rarely can be considered a useful tool to being happy, healthy and abundant; it eats into your time, dumping toxic rubbish into your brain; eliminating the television is like removing junk under the 80/20 principle and works to make it easier to achieve your goals as an improvement of your life processes under Kaizen.
