A taste of life without boundaries and limitations is what our latest Spring/Summer 18 campaign, Tokyo Transcendence, is all about. You are here because you enjoy pushing your limits and surpassing new frontiers. The idea of “continuous improvement” is nothing new, you already do it and our 5 Tip features are purposefully curated every week to help you reach your potential. In Japanese, this is called Kaizen, and is at the heart of everything we do at KANE. This week, in line with our latest campaign, Tokyo Transcendence, we share with you 5 tips to transcend yourself as you seek improvement day in and day out.
1. LEARN AND LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITION
Our intuition is always there. In fact, some people call it our higher self. You might know it as a gut feeling, a hunch or a strong inclination and urge that influences the decisions we make in life. However, if we listen close enough, our intuition has the power to direct us towards the choices that will benefit us and away from the experiences that are bad. Therefore, ignoring our intuition or gut feeling stops us from reaching our full potential and transcending to a new level. The more you acknowledge your intuition and listen to it, the quicker you will transcend into your higher self.
2. JOURNAL YOUR THOUGHTS
The more you write about yourself, your thoughts, and your happenings, the more insight you will get into who you are as a person and who you want to become. Yes it does take a little more effort and management of your time but realistically it takes a few minutes of your day, when you wake up or before you go to sleep, to inscribe a few thoughts. With each insight, you will form new beliefs about yourself enabling you to act upon those and develop yourself mentally. Journaling is well connected to your intuition as it may help listen to your intuition easier giving you a clearer state of mind to base your decisions upon. By writing down your experiences, both past and future, your intuition will naturally be sending messages about what to do and where to go.
3. RAISE YOUR PERSONAL STANDARDS
The expectations you put on yourself determine how far you travel in life. The highest form of yourself wants to find happiness, health and love and in order to obtain those things to the fullest your expectations need to be raised. Don’t accept anything less because you deserve more. Expect positive things to come and find you and reaching for the positives will become a whole lot more achievable. At KANE we are continuously living the KAIZEN mentality and trying to improve everything we do, day in and day out. Similarly, giving yourself high standards motivates you to work towards greatness.
4. BE MINDFUL OF THE PRESENT MOMENT
The only thing we are ever guaranteed is the present moment. This is why our watch designs are inspired by Japanese minimalism to make sure your focus is on what really matters, your time. With an enhanced awareness of the present moment, you take greater advantage of the time given to you. It is essential that in any given moment your focus is solely on the thing that matters most at that moment. As we mentioned in a previous “5 Tips” feature, it is scientifically proven that we are unable to multitask effectively meaning it is critical that we perform one action at a time in order to get the results we desire. So, getting your mind under control and being able to focus and shut out distractions will make you happier and calmer, helping you see things as they are, not as you believe them to be.
5. KEEP IT CLEAN, SIMPLE AND ESSENTIAL
Clean. Simple. Essential. This is the root of our mission at KANE. To create clean and simple timepieces, which through their modular design and select range of styles, represent timeless essentials for every man’s wardrobe. The concept can be applied to life in general. It is surprising how challenging it can be to not overcomplicate things and stick to the simplest path. But consciously eradicating complications and distractions will help you focus on the essentials, guiding you effortlessly to progress. The more you simplify, the more things become clearer and easier to decipher. So keep your mind clean, your actions simple and focus on the essentials in order to transcend towards a next level.
