Are you a continuous improvement 'early riser'?

Do you find that your continuous improvement projects are progressing as quickly as you would hope?

If you're not, it might be worth considering what time of day you undertake your improvement activity.

There are two things I would like you to consider:
  1. What time of day do you feel most productive, focused and enthused?
  2. How much of your day is spent in chaos.
Once you have mulled this over, even for a moment, please consider these two questions:
  1. What would happen if you kept a little bit of your best time for continuous improvement?
  2. What would happen if you started your day with continuous improvement?
If you keep a little portion of your most productive time for continuous improvement ten minutes can be worth an hour of normal working time and you can make some serious progress.

If you use the strategy of starting your day with continuous improvement then you increase the chances of doing it and you can put Parkinson's Law to good effect (Parkinson's Law states that work expands to fit the time available - so you can fit the rest of your work into the rest of the day!).

So, if you combine both approaches you might just find a very simple strategy that you can use to accelerate how you make changes happen in your business.
