How would you improve yourself in 2016?
In much the same way as I have for most of the last 60 years:
by reading in many fields,
by questioning and testing assumptions,
by imagining things,
by trying new things,
by engaging with a wide variety of people.
And in my world, perfection is an illusion with no remaining utility.
For me, we are all what we are when we are – that is the nature of reality.
Improvement is not about creating any sort of perfection, or fixing anything that is wrong, it is simply about exploring and creating new capacities.
New capacities give us the potential to do new things with degrees of safety.
I love the Japanese concept of kaizen – continuous improvement.
I attempt to learn at least one new skill every day.
