I try to apply “lean thinking” into all aspects of life, not just to work and certainly not just to construction projects (if you ever meet me in person, ask me to tell you how I manage my family’s weekly grocery list). When trying to inspire lean thinking in others, I encourage them to pick something that bugs them – it doesn’t matter what it is – and work their way backwards from there. The goal is to make life easier by reducing waste and/or add value; finding ways to simplify the process by speeding up or eliminating steps and handoffs wherever possible.
BTW on my scales I have already lost on IF and I have only been on this routine for 3 days! I know some of this is water and so forth but I really like this concept and I feel that it will work. I am not even getting very hungry, I think a lot of hunger is more mental then physical and when you have a structure like this to follow it puts up a firewall to prevent that from influencing my food consumption as much and plus every day your stomach is small again (prob normal sized) so its hard to over eat and not blantantly know it. I feel a lot more balanced out, thanks for sharing this with all of us.
