Reflection and Re-designing

Reflection and Re-designing

Because each step has been broken down, you’ll be able to easily identify any points of weakness. This is done by reassessing all nine steps on a regular basis.

The other gain around continuous reflection and re-design is the way it propels you through failure. For example, if you realise that you’ve missed your daily learning habit four days in a row, then break it into something smaller that’s more easily consumable. This stops you beating yourself up and stops you giving up.

Visualize your process working

Visualize your process working

As Marian Wright Edelman stated;

You can’t be what you can’t see.”

Define your target for the month: visualise the specific skills and habits that will lead you towards that future.

Define the actions that will build those skills: visualise what it will look like within your day to day life and schedule.

Don‘t try to create more than 3 new habits at one time

Another common temptation is to bite off more than you can chew. Don't try to integrate multiple new habits.

A habit is the result of intentional and deliberate action performed repeatedly, with purpose, until it becomes a standard behaviour. Before you can create a habit, you have to retain it as a reminder in your short-term memory.

Developing too many habits at once will muddy your success rate. Focus on just three, master them, then start on the next set of habits to develop.

Get going and learn

Get going and learn

Take action, get going, and learn. It isn’t enough to get excited and buy the books and courses when you’re motivated. It’s about the action. You have to do things every day.

Keeping it simple and having a plan for your vision will help make this happen.

Embed learning in your daily routine

Embed learning in your daily routine

You have to design all of your learning so it fits around your daily routine. Don’t try and create a new way of living your life.

Make a change and design habits so they fit around your lifestyle.

Think: You need to build a bridge from where you are to where you want to be in one month, one year, and ten years. You aren’t hopping on a plane and flying straight there. The bridge is built with the blocks of new information and habits, and held together with the mortar of your daily life.

Bill Gates

“Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.”


Design with simplicity

Design with simplicity

A more effective approach is to design with simplicity in mind.

For example, rather than deciding to read an entire book and implement what you’ve learnt from it, set yourself the simple goal of reading one article a week and really practicing its tenets deeply.

Take your learning in short bites. Focus on one thing at a time. Get it right, then move on to the next thing.
