All of us have deep-seated aspirations and dreams that we want to achieve. Most of the time we feel lazy and unmotivated to even start working on our goals. But did you know that there is a very effective technique used by Japanese citizens to overcome laziness and in the end achieve your goals?

It is called kaizen or the 1-minute principle. These dreams can only be achieved through dedication and at the same time perspiration(quoting Thomas Edison's famous quote: Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.)

Modern Japan is an economic powerhouse after the rapid recovery after World War II. The country excels in many areas of science, technology, mathematics, economics, engineering and other fields that need utmost dedication. The technique is traditional but still works in the context of the modern world.

The technique is receiving online popularity nowadays. Despite the fact that most modern technologies encourage laziness, the Kaizen technique seems to bypass the information overload brought on by the excessive Internet and smartphone use.
To perform kaizen is relatively easy. All you need is a full 60 seconds or 1 minute to train on something. But in that single minute, you should perform using the best of your abilities. It might seem contrary to the hardworking promise of Kaizen but things will get stranger from here. After doing something for 1 minute whether it's a new skill or an old one, each day you'll add another minute or multiply the number of minutes and in that time period, you should do your best.

There are many Youtube videos about Kaizen tutorials, kaizen videoblogs of how effective it is and infographics showing different varied kaizen progression time graphs. It showed that the kaizen technique encouraged dedication, passion, and most importantly; time management.
