Kaizen & Moonshining
When we practice Kaizen and moonshine on both the shop floor and on our business processes, it is not uncommon to experience fear because we are trying something new. The fear is especially prevalent because we do not know for sure how the change will work. But, when we demonstrate courage by trying new innovations, right away in a hands-on way, we get immediate feedback from that trial. That quick feedback enables us to learn and iterate over and over again.
The quick, iterative learning that we experience leads to many small successes that build confidence. Ultimately, success occurs through practicing Kaizen in this way and confidence leads to wisdom, through our own hands on learning with our own experiences. This is how practicing Kaizen transforms fear into wisdom.
