Personal Experiences with Kaizen

Kaizen has been wonderful for me having practiced it over 2 decades. It's like maths or physics (in fact any subject) in that if you want to you can see it being used in all aspects of everyday life. From a water droplet free falling to its impact, the energy used in its 'explosion' when it hits the floor, for example.
I feel that Kaizen may have its limits, as in everything. For instance sometimes, although not very often, I assess a task I may wish to undertake, think about how to perform it, it's impact when completed, how possibly to improve upon it etc. A time comes when I think 'perhaps I should not have thought about the process too much and just did it'. I am, after all NOT a machine. I wish to derive pleasure from my action. Occasionally I feel that certain things must be done on the spur of the moment and not thought about too much. Even quickly assessing so etching be it for half a second is perhaps half a second too much. Perhaps I'm thinking too deeply. How do I control Kaizen and make it work for the more important things. Should I adopt Kaizen thinking when asleep, or is it already doing that for me?
I enjoy Kaizen and advocate to anyone who asks me. It can be a way of life, but should it control my life? I feel that whenever I feel that it's beginning to overpower me, I just stand back and pause, enjoy the pause, rethink and then do it... Or is that Kaizen controlling me again?
Please share your personal experiences with Kaizen and leave me a reaction.
