#2- 整頓 (Seiton) translates as “order”
#3- 清掃 (Seisō). This Japanese word translates as “cleaning”
– in the morning: you need to arrive 10-15 minutes before the beginning of the working day to wipe the dust and get ready for work;
– lunch: usually the lunch break lasts 1 hour, but try to keep it within 50 minutes and spend the remaining 10 minutes cleaning your workplace;
– end of the day: you should finish the working day with cleaning to spend less time for restoring order in the next day.
#4- 清潔 (Seiketsu) – “purity”, but another translation is more popular – ” standardization”
#5- 躾 (Shitsuke), which translates as “education”.
