I was at a leadership coaching session all day yesterday. When I am imbibing knowledge, I like to doodle. My mind is at its heightened best when I am converting the knowledge into symbolic doodles on paper. I try and capture the dialogue between the mind and the information I process and more importantly the change it sets off internally. I love drawing monks because it symbolizes the meditative moment and the focus on self awareness and growth.
The Chinese characters depicted are but a figment of my imagination, except Kaizen which is the single most important guiding philosophy I live my life by. Kaizen is Japanese for continuous an never ending improvement. Incremental improvement every day that results in breakthroughs over time. It comes from two words Kai which means change and zen which means good.
