Lean Quote: New Beginnings

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.


"Every day I feel is a blessing from God. And I consider it a new beginning. Yeah everything is beautiful." — Prince

Pause for a moment, and consider the phrase, “new beginnings.” What images come to mind? A beautiful sunrise? A new baby opening his eyes to the world for the first time? Spring? Easter Sunday morning? A chance to start again, when life has become dark and difficult? Beautiful images, full of hope and promise.

For many, Easter is filled with rabbits, eggs and baskets, but for others it signifies the season of spring, of hope and renewal.

I’ve got to tell you, Easter is one of my favorite holidays. The day reminds me that this is a time of new beginnings, new starts and makeovers. It is no wonder that Easter comes in the spring, a time when we work on our gardens, tilling the soil and making way for new plants and vegetables. It is also a time when we clean out closets, getting rid of the things that we no longer need or want.

Easter is a great time to sit down and evaluate or reflect. Ask yourself; ‘Am I happy?’. If no, perhaps try and identify the areas of your life that are making you unhappy. It’s never too late to change! If you say ‘yes, I am happy’, perhaps think about what it is that is making you happy and celebrate this.

The idea of a fresh start is for some, the ultimate freedom. It can mean different things to different people but it could mean doing something that you’ve always wanted to do but never had the courage to do it. It could mean changing your thinking which will help to change your behavior, remember: ‘Think positive, be positive’.


You can be empowered. You can have the fresh start that you have always wanted. You can do anything that you want to do. It’s time to make a change.
