    Intentional Practice

    Intentional Practice

    "Isn't all practice intentional?"

    "EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY" a recent #1 Amazon Hot New Release.

    EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY debuts as a "prequel" and completes a "trilogy" MG never knew existed. Martin began writing The Habit Factor® shortly before 2005; it was published in 2010. Then, in 2015, The Pressure Paradox™ was published.

    EVERYTHING culminates nearly 20 years of deliberation, collaboration, and meditation, all in the pursuit of deconstructing human behavior for the purposes of goal attainment.


    In this episode, MG shares a quick story from a recent consultancy project. Martin was hired to help create some scripts based upon The Habit Factor's P.A.R.R. method for habit development and goal achievement. (Since there is an NDA that is all he can share about the project.)
    A script involving the term "intentional practice," was being reviewed and an associate asked, "Isn't all practice intentional?"
    It's a great question and the answer is nuanced. In short, YES and NO.
    There are degrees to practicing relative to its intentionality. The more specialized a practice becomes, the more intentional it becomes. 
    The real takeaway for the listener is this: "Intentional" and "deliberate" practice (as they are synonyms), can and should be used to cultivate both HABITS and SKILLS!
    In fact, that is the premise of The Habit Factor's P.A.R.R. methodology: One can intentionally practice positive habits in order to cultivate them and achieve their goals more quickly.

    "EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY" a recent #1 Amazon Hot New Release!

    EVERYTHING culminates nearly 20 years of deliberation, collaboration, and meditation, all in the pursuit of deconstructing human behavior for the purposes of goal attainment.

    EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY debuts as a "prequel" and completes a "trilogy" MG never knew existed. Martin began writing The Habit Factor® shortly before 2005; it was published in 2010. Then, in 2015, The Pressure Paradox™ was published.



    In this episode, MG reviews how language guides us toward insights about topics and problems we want to learn more about and solve.
    When it comes to achieving extraordinary results, it's clear the requirement is to have behaviors and habits that are out of the ordinary. Thus, "extra-ordinary." Of course, these extraordinary results could be undesirable as well.
    Either way, exceptional and extraordinary results come from doing things out of the ordinary.
    Martin shares how he used the same language discovery process when writing The Habit Factor®.
    A critical insight was observed, the Latin root of HABIT is, "HABIT-US," essentially meaning "condition and/or character."
    Martin then shares a remarkable story recounted in The Pressure Paradox™ about concentration. One of the greatest tennis players of all time, Rod Laver, provided key insights on the topic.
    Rod explains to Martin that he "just happened to play his best when it mattered most." Martin asks Rod to clarify exactly how he managed to "play his best when it mattered most."

    In this episode, MG reviews the magical concept of time. How time is both real and important sometimes and unimportant and illusory at other times. MG reminds listeners that there are at least four prior episodes on TIME at https://podcast.thehabitfactor.com/?s=time
     
    Jim Rohn, the late great personal development legend, used to say, "The good news is you will arrive ten years from now. The question is, where?"
     
    Quickly reflect on yourself – your being – at the ages of 5, 15, 25, 35, etc. You'll notice one thing immediately; you are in a perpetual state of becoming. You are perpetually transforming as you develop new skills and habits.
     
    Few organizations are more goal-oriented than NASA. Yet, what do they do when they miss a deadline for an important launch – a goal date? They certainly don't freak out. They don't panic, and they don't abandon their goal. They just reset the launch date. 
     
    You should be setting and adjusting your goal deadlines similarly. The most important thing is to be ON THE PATH!
     
    When you're moving toward your most important goals and ideals daily, you're on the path. This adds immense value to your life and others as well as purpose and meaning.

    How Systems Help to Create Habits & Skills

    How Systems Help to Create Habits & Skills

    The military and business franchises are great examples. Both embody the "3 Circles of Behavior Echo-System" perfectly. Each reveals how crucial it is to frame one's behaviors with a supportive environment and narrative to foster new habits and skills.

    "EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY" a recent #1 Amazon Hot New Release!

    EVERYTHING culminates nearly 20 years of deliberation, collaboration, and meditation, all in the pursuit of deconstructing human behavior for the purposes of goal attainment.

    EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY debuts as a "prequel" and completes a "trilogy" MG never knew existed. Martin began writing The Habit Factor® shortly before 2005; it was published in 2010. Then, in 2015, The Pressure Paradox™ was published.



    In this episode, MG clarifies what a "system" really is and how they influence the development of new habits and skills.

    Unfortunately, many thought leaders in this personal development space define "systems" as a "series of habits." That is incorrect. A series of habits is a ritual, not a "system."
    Two fantastic examples of systems in action are business franchises and the military.

    Each, by design, bookends their employees'/soldiers' behaviors with essential core narratives (values, meaning, purpose, mission – see the inner concentric circle in the image above) and a supportive environment (see outer concentric circle).

    Together those components equate to a "system." That system helps to forge behaviors into new habits and skills.

    Each organization then aligns their employees'/soldiers' behaviors to their respective goals to make them remarkably effective!

    Each reveals how YOU can and should implement the "3 Circles of Behavior Echo-System" to design the new habits and skills that will help you to achieve your most important goals and ideals.

    Grunburg's new book, "EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY," presents a new, paradigm-shifting behavior model that anyone can use to change their stories and habits to redirect their lives.

     
    STORY is at its core and reveals how human thoughts and behaviors’ echo’ and ‘reverberate.’
     
    Older behavior models are complicated and represent human behavior linearly. 
     
    Human behavior vibrates. Our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and behaviors produce a “vibe.” These “vibes” influence how we behave.
     
    There’s a reason people say things like, “I like the vibe here,” or “that resonated with me.”
     
    Environments, thoughts, feeling, and behaviors influence each other.

    In this episode, MG reviews the essential idea "To begin," as Stephen Covey put it, "with the end in mind." To do so represents "habit #2," according to Covey's bestseller, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
     
    Whether it's date night, a meeting with the boss, or lunch with the kids, approaching situations with a notion of an ideal outcome greatly facilitates the chance of it materializing.
     
    The principle becomes more valuable for significant "events." Few "EVENTS" are more significant than your life.
     
    Thus, taking time now to press pause and identify the ideal outcome of your life has a similar benefit!

Fantastic Podcast!

Dario Deak ,

Reset

I’ve been consuming Martin’s content for several years. The topics discussed within this podcast are timeless and worthy of study in any environment. It is one of my main go to’s especially when I need to reset my mind and actions that tend to drift away often due to many challenges of life. Simple and effective approach. Highly recommend!!!

ImImpressed ,

Suggestion

Martin,
See my previous comment. The content is great, but I wish you would change your podcast name back to the original HabitFactor instead of Habits2Goals. My only goal is to develop and maintain healthy habits. The notion of Goals gets too complicated and may confuse many. Need to be clear & calm before we can identify goals. At least make it clear that we don’t have to set our Goals before starting down this path.
