The Thursday Thesis - 09/11/2017
When I plan my day (it is planned, no matter how random it looks – that’s my art-form) I always write my goals down, so I can give some kind of shape to the day ahead.
Then I ask myself the crucial question “How did I get all that done, today?”.
On the face of it that’s a daft question, because I haven’t done it yet. But on a deeper level it is gaming my mind’s biases and playing with language to engineer a better result.
First of all, I’m presupposing that I DID get things done.
Secondly, I’m presupposing that I got it ALL done.
Thirdly, I’m asking my brain to look back into an imagined future in which everything went right...
That retrospective into the future gives me a road map to achieve what I want to achieve, from a perspective of completion and success.
So, make a list and ask yourself “How did I get all that done, today?”
Let me know how this works for you, and please like and share the post.
