Be Improvement-Conscious

Every one of us has the potential of greatness, waiting to be developed.

"Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not." - Walter Bagehot

Don't be yourself. Improve yourself.

No one ever finds time for self-improvement. Serious ones make time. They decide on priorities. Without priorities of time, no one reaches his potential.

People seldom improve unless they have models greater than themselves. Adopt a few.

Every morning say: "I will improve something today." Every successful man is improvement-conscious.

Just a thought - these slogans seem very apt and interesting, but the process is a BORING way to achieve self-knowledge.
Drop the 'process-driven enlightenment' and corporate talk and BE A COMMUNICATOR!

Hi new illuminati,

Indeed, the diagram is using business terms which are quite boring.

In Six Sigma Methodology, Process Improvement is very important. The idea of Six Sigma is to improve a process without having to be tied to any person. Thus, a company can improves their business processes even when a different person is handling it as long as a new improved process model is employed.

I believe Self-Improvement process is very similar to Business Improvement Process.

Thank you for your valuable views. Best wishes.
