14 Toyota Way Principles


Here is the briefly summary of the Toyota Way Principles:

  1. Base your management decisions on a long-term philosophy, even at the expense of short-term financial gains. Have a philosophical sense of purpose and mission that supersedes any short-term decision-making. Work, grow, and align the whole organization toward a common purpose that is bigger than making money.
  2. The Right Process will produce the Right Results. Don’t hide problems within the organization, but create continuous process flow to bring them to the surface.
  3. Avoid overproduction by following the principle of just-in-time — namely, customers should get what they want, when they want it, and in the amount they want.
  4. Eliminate waste of human and material resources. Also, strive to cut back to zero the amount of time that any work project is sitting idle or waiting for someone to work on it.
  5. Build a culture of stopping to fix problems, to get quality right the first time.
  6. Standardized tasks are the foundation for continuous improvement and employee empowerment. Capture the accumulated learning about a process by institutionalising today’s best practices and allows employees to improve the standard through creative self-expression.
  7. Use visual and manual control so that no problems are hidden.
  8. Use technology to support people, not to replace people. Reject or modify technologies that conflict with your work culture. Nevertheless, encourage your people to consider new technologies when looking into new approaches to work.
  9. Develop such leaders in your organization who thoroughly understand the work, live the philosophy, and teach it to others. Do not view the leader’s job as simply accomplishing tasks. Leaders must be role models of the company’s philosophy and way of doing business.
  10. Develop exceptional people and teams who follow your company’s philosophy. Make an ongoing effort to teach individuals to work together as teams toward common goals.
  11. Have respect for your business partners and suppliers and treat them as an extension of your business.
  12. Continuously solving root problems improves organizational learning. Even high-level managers should go and see things for themselves, so that they will have more than a superficial understanding of the situation.
  13. Make decisions slowly by consensus, thoroughly considering all options; but implement decisions rapidly.
  14. Become a learning organization through relentless reflection (Hansei) and continuous improvement (Kaizen). Protect the organization’s knowledge and cultural base by developing stable personnel, careful promotion, and well thought-out succession systems.

Vegetarian Foods, Powerful Tools for Health


A vegetarian menu is a powerful and pleasurable way to achieve good health. The vegetarian eating pattern is based on a wide variety of foods that are satisfying, delicious, and healthful. Vegetarians avoid meat, fish, and poultry. Those who include dairy products and eggs in their diets are called lacto-ovo vegetarians. Vegans (pure vegetarians) eat no meat, fish, poultry, eggs, or dairy products. While there is a considerable advantage to a lacto-ovo vegetarian pattern, vegan diets are the healthiest of all, reducing risk of a broad range of health concerns.


Vegetarians have much lower cholesterol levels than meat-eaters, and heart disease is less common in vegetarians. The reasons are not hard to find. Vegetarian meals are typically low in saturated fat and usually contain little or no cholesterol. Since cholesterol is found only in animal products such as meat, dairy, and eggs, vegans consume a cholesterol-free diet. The type of protein in a vegetarian diet may be another important advantage. Many studies show that replacing animal protein with plant protein lowers blood cholesterol levels—even if the amount and type of fat in the diet stays the same. Those studies show that a low-fat, vegetarian diet has a clear advantage over other diets.


An impressive number of studies, dating back to the early 1920s, show that vegetarians have lower blood pressure than non-vegetarians. In fact, some studies have shown that adding meat to a vegetarian diet raises blood pressure levels rapidly and significantly. The effects of a vegetarian diet occur in addition to the benefits of reducing the sodium content of the diet. When patients with high blood pressure begin a vegetarian diet, many are able to eliminate the need for medication.


The latest studies on diabetes show that a vegetarian diet high in complex carbohydrates and fiber (which are found only in plant foods) and low in fat is the best dietary prescription for controlling diabetes. A diet based on vegetables, legumes, fruits, and whole grains, which is also low in fat and sugar, can lower blood sugar levels and often reduce or even eliminate the need for medication. Since individuals with diabetes are at high risk for heart disease, avoiding fat and cholesterol is important, and a vegetarian diet is the best way to do that.


A vegetarian diet helps prevent cancer. Studies of vegetarians show that death rates from cancer are only about one-half to three-quarters of those of the general population. Breast cancer rates are dramatically lower in countries where diets are typically plant-based. When people from those countries adopt a Western, meat-based diet, their rates of breast cancer soar. Vegetarians also have significantly lower rates of colon cancer than meat-eaters. Colon cancer is more closely associated with meat consumption than any other dietary factor.

Why do vegetarian diets help protect against cancer? First, they are lower in fat and higher in fiber than meat-based diets. But other factors are important, too. Plants contain other cancer-fighting substances called phytochemicals. For example, vegetarians usually consume more of the plant pigments beta-carotene and lycopene. This might help to explain why they have less lung and prostate cancer.
Also, some studies have suggested that diets that avoid dairy products may reduce the risk of prostate and ovarian cancer. Some of the anti-cancer aspects of a vegetarian diet cannot yet be explained. For example, researchers are not quite sure why vegetarians have more of certain white blood cells, called “natural killer cells,” which are able to seek out and destroy cancer cells.


Vegetarians are less likely to form either kidney stones or gallstones. In addition, vegetarians may also be at lower risk for
osteoporosis because they eat little or no animal protein. A high intake of animal protein encourages the loss of calcium from the bones. Replacing animal products with plant foods reduces the amount of calcium lost. This may help to explain why people who live in countries where the diet is typically plant-based have little osteoporosis, even when calcium intake is lower than that in dairy-consuming countries.


It’s easy to plan vegetarian diets that meet all your nutrient needs. Grains, beans, and vegetables are rich in protein and iron. Green leafy vegetables, beans, lentils, tofu, and nuts are excellent sources of calcium, as are enriched soymilk and fortified juices.
Vitamin D is normally made in the body when sun shines on the skin. People who are dark-skinned or live at northern latitudes have some difficulty producing vitamin D year-round. Vitamin D can easily be obtained from fortified foods.

Some sources are commercial breakfast cereals, soymilk, other supplemental products, and multivitamins. Regular intake of vitamin B12 is important. Good sources include all common multiple vitamins (including vegetarian vitamins), fortified cereals, some brands of nutritional yeast, and fortified soymilk. It is especially important for pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers to get enough vitamin B12. When reading food labels, look for the word cyanocobalamin in the ingredient list. This is the form of vitamin B12 that is best absorbed.

Curriculum Vitae

Curriculum vitae yang biasanya disebut CV adalah representasi diri. Tetapi para lulusan baru sering mengirim CV yang bikin geleng-geleng kepala. Karena kurang referensi, mereka kerap melakukan kesalahan yang tidak disadari. Memang tidak mutlak membuat mereka ditolak, tetapi memperkecil peluang untuk diterima.

Berikut adalah beberapa kesalahan yang sering ditemukan dan mungkin menjadi alasan kalau CV anda tidak diproses lebih lanjut.

1. Foto

Pilihlah foto yang membuat Anda terlihat profesional. Umumnya perekrut lebih menyukai foto yang formal dan sederhana. Pergilah ke studio foto dan buat satu foto yang bagus untuk investasi Anda ketika melamar pekerjaan dan tentunya jangan pakai foto yang sudah terlalu lama.

2. Alamat email

Dewasa ini tentu hampir setiap orang menyertakan alamat email dalam CV-nya. Hindari alamat email yang terlalu personal seperti atau Buatlah satu akun email dengan nama asli Anda untuk keperluan resmi. Jangan sampai Anda kalah bersaing dengan pelamar lainnya hanya karena alamat email Anda menggelikan.

3. Informasi yang tepat

Jangan kirim CV yang persis sama ke semua perusahaan. Usahakan “jahit” terlebih dahulu setiap kali Anda melamar. Beri penekanan pada prestasi atau keahlian yang relevan dengan posisi incaran. Tidak perlu mencantumkan prestasi “pemenang lomba karaoke” bila memang posisi yang Anda inginkan tidak membutuhkan keahlian bernyanyi. Informasi pendidikan juga cukup dimulai dari SMA saja, tidak perlu taman bermain dan TK. Intinya, tekankan pada informasi yang bisa menunjukkan Anda orang yang tepat untuk posisi ini.

4. Terlalu panjang

Pihak perekrut akan menerima setumpuk lamaran, jadi satu menit pertama amat menentukan. Jangan buang waktunya sia-sia dengan membeberkan prestasi Anda dari sejak TK. Buatlah kesan yang baik di surat lamaran sehingga mereka mau membaca hingga habis. Anda boleh menyertakan alamat LinkedIn atau blog yang berisi portofolio bila diperlukan. Tetapi apa pun yang terjadi, jangan pernah meminta perekrut untuk mendownload sendiri CV Anda dari Internet. Itu namanya tidak sopan.

5. Email kosong

Mentang-mentang CV tersimpan di telepon seluler, maka begitu melihat suatu lowongan Anda langsung mengirimkannya tanpa berusaha membuat surat lamaran. Mau tahu kesan yang muncul begitu membaca email kosong seperti ini? Pelamar adalah seseorang yang malas. Pelamar hanya secara acak mengirim CV ke kanan-kiri tanpa usaha lebih untuk membuat surat lamaran yang menarik.

6. Jiplakan

Yep, para perekrut sudah sering membaca bertumpuk CV jadi mereka bisa mengenali mana yang jiplakan dan bukan. Usahakanlah membuat surat lamaran dengan kalimat orisinal untuk meningkatkan kemungkinan Anda diterima. Kalaupun belum memiliki pengalaman, Anda bisa menceritakan poin kekuatan Anda yang cocok untuk pekerjaan yang diincar. Tak perlu membuat surat lamaran yang terlalu panjang. Fokus pada kekuatan Anda dan tentunya jangan lupa mencantumkan informasi kontak agar mudah dihubungi.

Fear are Actually Good Things

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” – George Bernard Shaw

The fear of making mistakes can prevent you from trying anything new or moving out of your comfort zone. This is such a terrible waste of your skills and your talents and robs you from truly enjoying your life.

Just the word, “mistake” will strike fear in a lot of people’s minds when it really shouldn’t. They’re actually good things not bad.

Walter Anderson talks about the fear of making mistakes in his book,The Confidence Course: Seven Steps to Self-Fulfillment. He says, “In order to live a fulfilled life, to feel exhilarated by your accomplishments, to worry well, you must expect mistakes to occur – and you must practice what I call RIP, which stands for responsibility, insight and perspective. It also means, as you know, Rest In Peace, which in itself may not be a bad way to look at your mistakes.”

So, mistakes are a good thing. You can’t grow if you don’t allow yourself to make mistakes. The trick is to focus on what you learned from the mistake and how to improve from it.

It’s not worth wasting your time agonizing over things in the past because you can’t change what happened. You just need to recognize that you simply made a mistake. That doesn’t mean you’re a failure because you made a mistake. You and the mistake are not the same thing at all. You learned something valuable from it and can now move forwards. It means you can focus on a solution and be far further ahead than if you’d never allowed yourself to make the mistake.

Lots of times, they’re not even mistakes. You just learned a different strategy was needed. Your actions weren’t getting what you wanted so you needed to think of a different way. That’s not a mistake. That’s simply exploration and discovery. As Thomas Edison once said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

Lisa Nichols, the motivational speaker, also has a great quote which says, “they’re not failures, they’re feedback”. It’s much more comforting to think of them that way. You also keep a positive mindset rather than sinking into the thoughts that you “failed” when you didn’t really. You just gained some additional knowledge.

The best part about it is that you faced your fear of making mistakes and even though you may not have got the exact result you wanted, at least you tried. And, you won’t have to live with that constant nagging thought of “what if”.
What if I’d tried, what if I’d said something, what if…

People don’t notice our mistakes nor judge us anywhere near as much as we think they do. And, if you gain something from it, why let the fear of what someone else “might” think stop you? You can never know what someone else is really thinking anyway. They might really be impressed at your willingness to take a chance and to try things. You just don’t know. You can only know what you’re thinking. That you have complete control over.

Mistakes are usually some of our greatest learning experiences and that’s the key thing to remember. It’s really not so important what others think of us. It’s far more important to understand what you now know about yourself.

Sometimes, “blowing it” can make you realize what your priorities and values are and that’s valuable insight you probably couldn’t have got any other way. This knowledge not only makes you more comfortable with yourself, it also helps you move forwards in a more confident way.

Once you relax and accept that you really are a good person just trying to do your best and that you make mistakes sometimes, then that mindset is going to be reflected outwards and come back to you in good ways. You’ll discover that people trust and respect you all the more for being comfortable with allowing yourself to make mistakes.

Be who you are. Trust in yourself. It will come back to you in amazing ways. Don’t be so focused on achieving one particular outcome that you miss all kinds of wonderful opportunities because you fear making mistakes. Mistakes are good things. Forgive yourself when you make a mistake. Or even better, celebrate. You’ve probably just learned a better way to do something. Or as Danish Nobel Prize winner, Niels Bohr, says, “An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field”. You could now consider yourself an expert in your field.

It truly is all in how you think about it.

“The people that quit when they get knocked down from life’s blows call it failure.  The people that get up and keep on moving forward towards their goals and desires call it experience.” – Mike Kemski
