Here is my main reason to write about Lean Self. To my mind, the self-help industry is somewhat dubious. A lot of it falls into one or more of the following categories:
- Promotion of wishful thinking, aka visualization of goals, aka law of attraction
- Get rich quick, aka how to create your own business, aka buy my book to become rich
- Diet advisory without scientific background or contrary to scientific results
- Esoteric mumbo-jumbo, often disguised as holistic, but missing out the facts of life
Adopting consistent and widely acknowledged Lean Management principles to personal development is systematic. More than many approaches you find in the self-help section of your book shop.
I am convinced that Lean Self is exactly the approach which invites even the most skeptical to learn about self-management.
