The essential guide to kaizen—the art of making great and lasting change through small, steady steps—is now repackaged as an impulse paperback with a dazzling new cover that speaks to its proper positioning as a self-help/inspiration title that’s applicable to business as well.

Written by Dr. Robert Maurer, a psychologist on the staff of both the University of Washington School of Medicine and Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center, and an expert on kaizen who speaks and consults nationally, One Small Step Can Change Your Life is the gentle but potent way to effect change. It is for anyone who wants to lose weight. Or quit smoking. Or write a novel, start an exercise program, get out of debt, or conquer shyness and meet new people.

Beginning by outlining the all-important role that fear plays in every type of change—and kaizen’s ability to neutralize it by circumventing the brain’s built-in resistance to new behavior—Dr. Maurer then explains the 7 Small Steps: how to Think Small Thoughts, Take Small Actions, Solve Small Problems, and more. He shows how to perform mind sculpture—visualizing virtual change so that real change comes more naturally. Why small rewards lead to big returns by internalizing motivation. How great discoveries are made by paying attention to the little details most of us overlook. Rooted in the two-thousand-year-old wisdom of the Tao Te Ching—“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”—here is the way to change your life without fear, without failure, and to begin a new, easy regimen of continuous improvement.
Two weeks afterwards, Oscar asked Professor Koening for a second date, oops! German Dialogue! In the meanwhile, he had encouraged Cutie to have one of her dialogues with the professor off campus. Cutie asked the professor to meet her at the same restaurant Oscar had his class. Oscar took Cutie to the restaurant before the appointed time; he did not want the professor to see him for obvious reasons. The dialogue went well, and the professor took Cutie back to campus. Cutie told Oscar about the wonderful time they had together, and the affable personality of Professor Koenig. Oscar was delighted about Cuties successful dialogue and the intriguing web he was weaving. He had to prevent Cutie from conjuring up any suspicion relative to the ulterior motive he harbored in asking for a second German dialogue. Professor Koenigs house was a large luxurious palatial mansion. Oscar stopped in the circular driveway; he climbed the marble staircase to a big door that signaled entrance to the palace. He spoke to the footman at the door and then went back down the stairs. Oscar turned around to see the footman opened the door, and goose-bumps with a tingling feeling swept over him. Professor Koening stepped out in a red dress that accentuated, indeed flaunted, ever curve in her incredibly sexy body. Oscar opened the door; Professor Koening graciously entered the car. As Oscar looked around he saw a magnificent view of the city and the Caribbean Sea below. He was high up in St. Andrew Hills, which was indicative of the unquestioned highest dating peak of his young life. His heart was racing; he was trembling as he entered the drivers seat. He did not put his hand on the steering wheel in order to conceal his nervousness. He sat there briefly, trying to make light conversation; never in his life was he in proximity to such a gorgeous creature of brain and beauty. How could he even begin to communicate on a sexual level with this outstanding woman of power, wealth, and sophistication? While he was in his contemplation, she accidentally touched his leg, and LJS jumped like a frightened puppy.
