Kaizen

Just bought a new book entitled Kaizen.  Kaizen is the Japanese method for transforming habits one small step at a time.  I have not read the book and it is still nicely wrapped.  But what intrigues me is that a colleague from Academy of Islamic Civilisation, UTM wrote a beautiful quote on his FB wall which has a similar meaning .  The quote is

Hidup jangan berlari

Cukuplan kita berjalan

kerana hidup ini bukan perlarian

tapi hidup ini adalah perjalanan
