Mediocrity to Excellence
There are many ways of “upping your performance and this is one of them. Recenty, people have been talking to me about Hal Elrod’s book “The Miracle Morning”.
In fact, over the last week, three people have suggested I get it, so I thought maybe I’d be sensible to look at it and see what lessons I can take to propel me even further upwards. And it took me back to a mastermind group that I used to attend in London and a tool I learned from the facilitator of the group. At that stage, I was a new coach, who had lots of wobbles and wasn’t really sure how to get clients and work with them. Now everything has changed and the lessons that I learned there and are repeated in the Hal Elrod bok are still very very useful. And I have to admit, I had forgotten about some of them.
And its about habits that change your outcomes. I’m on a health and clarity journey this year and Ive chosen 5 habits that will help me get my outcomes for the year. Maybe some of you are already doing these really well and can choose others – you’ll know what they are.
I’ve developed a table for you (click on the link below) to use which has been populated with the things that I want to make a habit. And I’ve used the following headings for the table:- What, Why, How and What if
If I take something I want to make a habit and go through it with you.
- What – Filing.
- Why – the space around me is more conducive to working in and I don’t start the day with clearing up a mess.
- How – I’m going to notice when things aren’t filed and do it straight away.
- What if – I will feel organised and confident that I can find things very quickly and have more space to enjoy hobbies and friendships in the knowledge that I have complete clarity and am organised.
Of course, there are quick ways to get this sorted from an NLP perspective. A SWISH pattern, gives you choices for behaviours and can change the way you behave in about 20 minutes. It is only used for “highly contextualised, minor behaviour or state” and I use it with clients and also teach it as one of the tools in my NLP Practitioner Training.
