The Personal Kanban Difference - The Quadrant of Kaizen: This quadrant contains quality-related tasks—the time and effort you spend here is an investment in future quality. Elevating and prioritizing this quadrant is the essence of kaizen. Since these tasks provide future rather than immediate results, they are often left deprioritized in favor of Urgent and Important tasks. This quadrant should be your focal point, because the more you ignore the tasks within, the more they’ll gravitate towards the panic quadrant. This quadrant is the antidote for panic.
