1. Notice

Moshe_PuzzleWhere are you?

Not just physically but where are you in terms of what you want to learn to do better?

Do you know what you DO? HOW you do it? What you feel? sense? emote? as you do it?

If you know where you are before you begin, you will be able to see when things change.

Perceptions are easily clouded by fears of not being good enough, by others’ assessments, and by personal projections. That is why it’s important to take the time to notice how things really are. Right now before you set out to change.

Take the time to notice what you do. No one need know but you.

The more specific you can be, the more truthful and accurate your observations, the easier it will be to improve and to know that you have improved.

Think about what it is you want to do better.

How do you do that NOW?

Give it some serious thought.  How DO you do what you do?  Remember to focus on you and what YOU do, not what others do or don’t do to support your efforts.  If you catch yourself calling out others, pull yourself back.  Stay focused on you.

How do YOU do what you do now?

Change sneaks up on you.  If you aren’t careful, you might not notice that you’re doing something differently.  In order to track your shift, you need to know where you started.  You also need a way to recall that starting point.

How will you remember your starting point?

Hint: You could journal.  Or tell a friend.  Draw a picture.  Make notes on your calendar.  Write a story.  Send a letter to yourself.  The options are endless.  How will YOU remember?
