Welcome to Kaizen Journaling: How We Can Contribute to Your Success


I believe that no one wants to settle for mediocre achievements. People end up leading average life because they fall into it by following conventional routes of education, career and relationships, and they never quite manage to break the cycle.

My mission here is to advocate dreaming big dreams, and believing in possibilities. It’s about realising that everyone gets only twenty-four hours in a day, and it is what we do with that time that makes the difference.

I’ll never tell you to accept other people’s definition of success. I believe that success, like people, is an individual concept. Your success is measured by what you want, not by what someone else has achieved. It’s in your power to be the best you can be. I’m here, to guide you on the way.

Here, you’ll find practical resources that you can use to create your personalised arsenal for success using simply a journal and a pen. Every post will have SPECIFIC ACTIONS at the end, so you can start applying what you read straight away. Learning is good, and I encourage it heartily. But application is what makes us progress.

Does any of the below resonate with you?

  • You want to wake up, feeling enthusiastic about going to work.
  • You want to feel like you are living up to your potential.
  • You are not always comfortable being yourself, for the fear of what others might think, or for the fear of having to justify yourself.
  • You are afraid you will be unsuccessful, and won’t make your mark in the world.
  • You want to do many things, but not sure how to go about it.
  • You are worried your dreams are unrealistic.
  • You feel that there is not enough time to do everything you want to do, and too many things to do that you don’t want to do.

If you agree with any of the above, then you are in the right place.

This is the beginning for all of us…

We are here, united by our drive to live in a way that is an extension of who we are. We are here to practice Kaizen by continuously improving our lives, fuelling our dreams, and honing our skills. We are here to stand up for what we believe in.

I’m here to help.

You are all here because you share my belief, and are not afraid of hard work. You know that anything worthwhile takes hard work. You are not here expecting a miracle, but guidance to get the best results.

I’m grateful that you are here, and a part of this community. Individually, we are just a few odd balls fighting an uphill battle against the world full of “should” and “must”. United, we are a movement. 

We are not meant to simply exist and fit quietly in this world. We are here to make our unique mark. We don’t all have to lead revolutions and change the world on a grand scale, but we can take control of our life.

If you agree, I would love to consider you a regular reader.

  1. Dolly, i’m so excited for you and to be a Kaizen Warrior. The things you speak of, about making the most of our 24hrs and avoiding language such as ‘should’ and ‘must’ really resonate with me. I am forever telling myself I should have done this, or I must do that, or I ought… it’s all based on other people’s expectations of us. I look forward to this journey!

    Also, I just wanted to say that I really like the ‘Action You Can Take Today’ part – really helpful and motivating!


  2. Hey Dolly! Just wanted to stop by and say CONGRATS! Amazing message. Wonderful site. Great content. WELL DONE!

    I too am excited about being a Kaizen Warrior!
