This applies to ANYTHING.
How It Works
Often when we’re doing any kind of activity, we get in our own way by letting our thoughts restrict our actions, either through fear of failure or limiting our expectations, but when we follow a trusted system we are able to focus on the process rather than our own ability at the same time freeing our mental resources to ask questions and look for positives.
It’s about removing bias, getting out of our own way & just sticking to the data (reality).
If you can detach yourself from whatever it is, create a system that means you only need to follow the steps of that system, like a trained monkey to gather data (because we have more tools than ever before for gathering and analyzing data – and we can learn a LOT from data) – then you’re on the road to massive improvement and success.
OBVIOUSLY there is a lot more going on here psychologically which we could explore AND it’s easier said than done, but these efficiency hacks are supposed to be brief so for now, that’s it in a nutshell:
For any given endeavour you want to do well/improve: GET OBJECTIVE —> create a system and gather data.
THEN (the important part), USE THE SYSTEM, to ALLOW YOU to do the following two things:
- Do your best
- Enjoy the process
This is how you will learn and improve like never before.
I might elaborate further on this concept (psychology, more examples, how to do it, how it relates to limiting beliefs etc) in a future article and if so, I’ll link to that here.
In the meantime, if you have any thoughts or questions, lemme know below…
