Improving What is Good Already

The fifth principle of Lean Self is “Continuously improve. Towards perfection.” That implies that you even improve when something seems to be good. You could rephrase this:

Better means that more value is created or that less effort is put into the creation of value.

Since Lean Self is about self-improvement, that includes:

  • Abilities
  • Knowledge
  • Behavior
  • Relationships
  • Sense of well-being
  • Health (within the limits of biology)
  • Satisfaction with life

This list is far from complete; every aspect of life can be improved. The continuous strive for perfection need not stop when something is good. Besides, as discussed earlier, staying in a comfort zone is dangerous.
