One of the most powerful aspects of Kaizen philosophy is that it asks us to always start with nothing.
That means no materials. But it mostly means no ideology.
Every day is an opportunity to challenge our beliefs.
Every time we pick up a hammer and swing it at our art, we have an opportunity to improve.
Every time someone challenges our ideology we are given an opportunity to learn.
Perhaps our belief will be bolstered by our defence. But it may also crumble and give way to a new, deeper understanding of the world and how we move in it.
Few things are more potent tools for growth than the ability to challenge dogma continuously.
That’s where all the best ideas come from.
