Reading Mladen Jovanovic’s My “productivity” system (in an attempt) I came across the PDF on lean priming. It is a system used by Toyota and has helped them generate profits when others are losing.

Really, how difficult is this? Stop with the whining. Stop with the excuses. Act like an adult and stop eating like a television commercial. Grow up.”
