The fight against laziness, an omnipresent obstacle in daily life, has motivated various cultures to develop methods to increase productivity and personal success.In Japan, for example, seven techniques known as LSA have been perfected, representing a comprehensive approach to overcoming laziness and improving efficiency in all areas of life.
Kaizen, which means ‘continuous improvement’, is based on the implementation of small daily changes to facilitate the process of personal improvement in a gradual and sustained manner.
The ‘5S’ – Seiri, Seiton, Seiso, Seiketsu and Shitsuke – emphasize cleanliness and organization in the work environment, which helps reduce distractions and optimize available space.
Encourages self-assessment and constant reflection, allowing you to identify areas of improvement and set goals for continued personal development.
Or group decision making, promotes collaboration and communication when making important decisions, providing support and pressure to stay committed to set goals.

These seven concepts are fundamental to continuous improvement and have proven effective in overcoming laziness and increasing productivity. We invite everyone to put them into practice and experience the benefits they offer.
