Building the Background
A Lean Living Practitioner acts with a great sense of Responsibility toward this planet, its environment, its living beings, mankind and the society (that includes the Practitioner and the Practitioner’s family and relatives) at large. The Practitioner never tries to chase innovation (continuous improvement) without that sense of responsibility. Acting responsibly, while innovating, produces excellent results that matter the most to human life. Lean Living is a set of 'configurable' and 'context sensitive philosophy driven' Life-Practices that guide a human being in consciously living a life that is full of things and events that make the most real sense in a human-life. It helps one steer clear of things and events that, apparently do, but do not actually make real sense in one’s life. So when one looks back, while resting and slowing down in the long journey called life, the feeling that flashes in the human mind is that of absolute satisfaction and not resentment.
It happens in case of many human beings. Till very late in life, they keep themselves busy in chasing material acquisitions. And, that continues to prevail as their sole goal in life. At a very later stage in life, tired and dissatisfied, they try to reflect back. And, when they look back, they discover that they did not really live a life. It was more a chase combined with a passion for material acquisition. Unfortunately, many still believe, material acquisition is a symbol of social advancement. However, it is just the opposite, as per the theorists of that subject (Social Advancement). They (authorities | theorists) believe, in a really advanced society, we get to see substantially lesser focus on material acquisitions. And, we do get to see a great focus on social welfare and justice, sense of responsibility towards people and the planet, ‘cognitive, intellectual and spiritual’ acquisition and true enrichment of human life.
