Why Use Six Sigma in Your Life?
Many people seem to complain that they don’t have enough time in their life to get important things done. Well, it isn’t that they don’t have enough time, it is that their mindset is not organized for accomplishment.
Part of the reason behind this is that most of us don’t feel that our personal lives or having spare time to do what we want is important. But our need to lead a stress-free life is extremely important.
Remember, stress can cause many health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and obesity. So, when you take the time to run through the Six Sigma methodologies for Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control and use them to free up time in your personal life, you’ll have the added bonus of getting all your errands done —which will free up all that stress!
Since the goal is to get certain thing done by a certain time, your creative survival mode will kick in and figure out how to do this. But what is also very important are the reasons why and measuring the time it takes you before you implement DMAIC. So make sure you go through the entire DMAIC process for assured success and the correct mindset.
