Le kaizen s'annonce comme la prochaine grande tendance en matière de style de vie après l'ikigai et le lagom.
Le kaizen est la méthode japonaise douce pour changer ses habitudes. C'est la mise en oeuvre continue de petits changements qui conduit à des améliorations significatives sur le long terme ; en japonais, le mot kaizen veut en effet dire « amélioration continue » et est déjà éprouvé, depuis longtemps par l'industrie japonaise. Cette conduite du changement peut se résumer en une phrase : « Mieux qu'hier, moins bien que demain ».
Le kaizen peut s'appliquer dans tous les domaines de la vie quotidienne. Il suffit d'avancer d'un petit pas, jour après jour. Les efforts paraissent minimes, même quand l'objectif est important.

The #1 Sunday Times and International Bestseller from 'the most influential public intellectual in the Western world right now' ( New York Times ) What are the most valuable things that everyone should know? Acclaimed clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson has influenced the modern understanding of personality, and now he has become one of the world's most popular public thinkers, with his lectures on topics from the Bible to romantic relationships to mythology drawing tens of millions of viewers. In an era of unprecedented change and polarizing politics, his frank and refreshing message about the value of individual responsibility and ancient wisdom has resonated around the world. In this book, he provides twelve profound and practical principles for how to live a meaningful life, from setting your house in order before criticising others to comparing yourself to who you were yesterday, not someone else today. Happiness is a pointless goal, he shows us. Instead we must search for meaning, not for its own sake, but as a defence against the suffering that is intrinsic to our existence. Drawing on vivid examples from the author's clinical practice and personal life, cutting edge psychology and philosophy, and lessons from humanity's oldest myths and stories, 12 Rules for Life offers a deeply rewarding antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.

News is to the mind what sugar is to the body. In 2013 Rolf Dobelli stood in front of a roomful of journalists and proclaimed that he did not read the news. It caused a riot. Now he finally sets down his philosophy in detail. And he practises what he preaches: he hasn't read the news for a decade. Stop Reading the News is Dobelli's manifesto about the dangers of the most toxic form of information - news. He shows the damage it does to our concentration and well-being, and how a misplaced sense of duty can misdirect our behaviour. From the author of the bestselling The Art of Thinking Clearly , Rolf Dobelli's book offers the reader guidance about how to live without news, and the many potential gains to be had: less disruption, more time, less anxiety, more insights. In a world of increasing disruption and division, Stop Reading the News is a welcome voice of calm and wisdom.

Peterson offered an antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to modern anxieties.

''When asked what my best piece of advice is, I nearly always reply with: "if in doubt, wash your hair." On the one hand level it''s flippant, even trivial.

Whether it's the Protestant work ethic, or the capitalist need for productivity, most of us in the English-speaking world believe that in order to achieve anything worthwhile, we must first expend huge amounts of effort. In fact, just the opposite is true. In The French Art of Not Trying Too Hard, Ollivier Pourriol shows how the best results in life, love, work, art and even sports come not from working harder, but from letting go. This is not a new idea in France: since Montaigne, philosophers have suggested that a certain je ne sais quoi is the key to a more creative, fulfilling and productive existence. We can see it in their laissez faire parenting, their chic style, their haute cuisine and enviable home cooking - the French barely seem to be trying, yet the results are world famous. Drawing lessons from French legends like Descartes, Stendhal and Francoise Sagan, Rodin and Zidane, Cyrano de Bergerac and Coco Chanel, Ollivier Pourriol explores how to be efficient a la francaise , and how to effortlessly reap the rewards.
