A fertility page out of Japanese auto makers' management style

I've owned Japanese cars my entire life. 

12 years later with 200,000+ miles, my ol' Bessie continues to drive me in comfort.

I'm hoping it'll last long enough that my daughter can inherit it when she's old enough to drive. 

Something to look forward to in 3 years... Lol


Then I can get my mid-life crisis car!

I'll probably stick with Japanese since they consistently rate higher in quality than US cars. 

Japan's automotive dominance is due, in part, to its management. 

They allow their engineers to focus on steadily improving every individual system in a vehicle, rather than reinventing something new every few years. 

Quality is usually valued over quarterly profits.

A focus on long-term planning.

In contrast, US auto makers shuffle management frequently.  With each new guard comes dramatic changes in corporate direction, product planning, resource allocation, etc. 

On top of that, US management often demands revolutionary new products. While this thirst for innovation is good for the industry as a whole, it sacrifices quality.   Because it takes time to test and iron out the kinks.  

Improving fertility naturally is like approaching it the Japanese way - slow and steady.

This gradual process allows for a constant refinement to determine what's best for a person's individual situation. 

The time is also often needed to ensure that your body has the right nutrients and building blocks so a healthy pregnancy continues.  

Fertility treatments like IVF and IUI are like the American way of making cars.  Lots of innovation with modern technology. 

Great for specific situations but not necessarily the right choice all the time. 

Obviously IVF and IUI are helpful to get pregnant but sustaining a pregnancy for 9 months requires putting in the slow & often frustrating work of laying the foundation.

Sometimes both approaches are called for.

Usually for women over 40yo, the natural approach to conception is the better way.

Or women who have had multiple failed IVF cycles.  Or women with recurrent miscarriages.  Natural preparation might be the key to future success.

If you want to learn my Japanese approach of slow & steady, it's all in my online GPS (Get Pregnant & Stay pregnant) Fertility Program.  Check it out here: zenfertility.com/gps
