Most of us know how hard it can be to get rid of a bad habit. The amazing thing is that it is all in our mind and there is a simple technique everyone can use to get rid of the bad habits and build new good habits. The technique comes from a TED talk from Judson Brewer: “A simple way to break a bad habit” (the full link is https://www.ted.com/talks/judson_brewer_a_simple_way_to_break_a_bad_habit?utm_source=tedcomshare&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=tedspread)
Life is all about on-going change and adaptation, like a photographer choosing the camera and options best suited for the purpose. How are you changing and adapting to take the new possibilities and opportunities in life?
We are never too old to learn new things. We may just be too comfortable to the way we think. Change your thinking style, seek new ways, seek new approaches, seek new… anything!!! Just keep an open mind, a growth mind to learn and grow.
Change will take place not matter what we do. If we fight it or try to avoid it, then change will take place according to what someone else wants. If we drive it, we will influence the outcome to our liking and our needs.
Too often, I see people working how to improve and at the same time unwilling to make any change. Why this happens is a long story and it can be easy to fix. Let us all do something to help each one of us get better at coming out with alternatives, innovative ideas and start to become more comfortable with making changes. Challenge: For the next 30 days, each day come up with a new way to do normal activities in your daily routine.
It is funny how sometimes when working out ideas (for whichever reason), businesses and individuals keep shooting themselves in the foot. The funny size is that when someone starts coming up with an idea, another person or the individuals themselves, immediately shot it down because x. Isn’t this about coming with new ideas? Why is it that we stop before it is fully formulated? We could argue that it was too dumb or too this or too that. The point we would be missing is that all ideas are good. Some may not be practical and still they are good. As more ideas are written down, patterns start to emerge, some ideas will trigger other ideas, etc. Even unpractical ideas can trigger great ideas. Never be afraid of expressing and writing down ideas. They are an excellent source of innovation, improvement and progress. What idea are you thinking about now? Write it down!
