Welcome :)

Hi. I’m Brian Kerr.

Feeling stuck? You’re in the right place. Most of the time things aren’t great. And when things feel great, that experience of greatness is fleeting. We’re stuck in pain-in-the-ass systems that don’t work right. We’re stuck in groups that frustrate rather than inspire. We’re stuck in our own heads.

All we have is this day. Let’s use it: improve something today.

We’ll learn together. Thanks. —Brian

Continuous improvement


Never let a good crisis go to waste: each problem is an opportunity

Better together


Helping people find agreement on what to do next, and why

It’s already here


Getting out of one’s own head is a great joy and a great gift


  • Introducing my free field guide to finding waste in knowledge work and service work—and using the waste you find as an opportunity to start a practice of continuous improvement. Download the field guide here: improvesomething.today/field-guide.
  • The places where we don't know all the answers are where real improvements can happen. Discussed: Buddhism Without Beliefs by Stephen Batchelor; T. H. Huxley's agnosticism.
