  • Hi Yaro.

    This was an excellent subject for your post. My sister worked with the engineers at the Toronto Toyota plant. She told me many stories of their dedication to their employees and the Kaizen philosophy. It was an incredible atmosphere to work in, where their opinion mattered. Very positive. I have felt, for many years, this is the direction corporate America should be moving. Unfortunately that beast is very slow to turn.

    Your post was the perfect reminder to apply this philosophy to our own business. In some ways we already are, through further education, but I can see how we can take this deeper. As our business grows from the two of us to one where we have employees, this idea will integrated into everything we do. I can see where this would have been very beneficial to growth in past business ventures.

    Thanks again


    • It is amazing when I listen to the book how much what Toyota does just makes sense. They are not perfect, but they have such a good culture for correcting errors, when things do go wrong they really look so hard to find out why.

      Thanks for commenting Vicky!


  • […] came to really admire this idea recently when studying the Japanese company Toyota and their philosophies regarding the lean manufacturing […]

  • Kaizen is an idea I love – as is the Japanese approach to business (they also rock in my other love – distance running but I’ll leave that for now). What I WORRY about with Kaizen and looking for the small gains is missing the HUGE gains or disruption opportunities. I look at my industry (health and fitness) and often ask – what would Elon Musk do? Just some thoughts anyway. BTW Yaro if you actually read this with your own human eyes – I LOVE YOUR WORK – you are just a rockstar mate, you add so much great content and I listen to you very very often in my car on the way into town….. in the middle of New Zealand……

    • Haha, thanks Corey, I appreciate it. I still find it a bit weird that people listen to my voice all over the world – it’s pretty awesome!
