A few years ago I stopped making resolutions when I realized that if I try to make small changes as I go along during the year there is a much higher possibility that I will succeed at my goals. I recently learned a word that encompasses this idea and thought at the start of a new year I would share it with you all. The Japanese philosophy of Kaizen encourages slow and small changes over a longer period of time. Originally created as a philosophy for business, it has become one that encompasses all aspects of life.
I really enjoy cooking, but sometimes feel like recipes are too daunting so I stick with what I know. During the next year I am going to gradually experiment more with new meals and expand my cooking repertoire. After looking through it at a friend’s house last week, I am going to start by ordering this cookbook.
I hope you and your families enjoyed the holidays. Our office has had a great and much needed break. The good news I have to share is that Anna was whisked away on a surprise trip to NYC right before Christmas and got engaged! Congratulations to the bride-to-be!
I would like to take this time to say thank you to my readers who continue to come back and read what I write. Your comments and emails are encouraging and much appreciated. Best wishes to you all for 2011, I hope it is off to a great start.
