“All knowledge is based upon perceptual experience” ~Aristotle

Empiricism is a theory that states that knowledge comes only or primarily from sensory experience.

Here’s a couple questions to ponder deeply… 

"How real are certain “truths”? "How accurate is your knowledge particularly as it relates to the stories you tell yourself about your desires, goals and intentions?"

For instance, the US Supreme Court has nine justices? Why not just one? The reason is all nine people can and often see the same data, same experience and same "truth" differently. It turns out that their unique perception reveals to each a different story.

So, the question becomes, what story are you crafting about yourself? Which ones impose limits on you? How “real” are they? Are you certain that you can’t change the story to better support your ideals and goals. 

Knowledge is rarely static. Rather, we find that knowledge shifts around often throughout history. For instance, we know today that the world is round. There was a time that knowledge told all humans the world was flat. In middle school, we were taught that there are nine planets in our solar system. Today, knowledge tells us that there are just eight! Science told us for years that cholesterol was bad. Today there is good and bad cholesterol.

So, if your story (knowledge) isn’t serving you or your goals, CHANGE IT!

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things." ~Einstein

Why is it that we (humans) have this innate capacity to set goals for ourselves?

If success can be defined as "creating your ideal future" then how anyone can go about achieving "success" is via GOALS. Goals provide people a sense of control and self-efficacy as well as purpose. The challenge is, most people don't know how to effectively go about goal achievement so unfortunately they give up or think it's futile.

Henry and Martin review a few definitions and theories about "success" and realize that if we're trying to simply become better people, it is goals that help provides us the vehicle! And, any progress along the road is "success".

It turns out though that success is NOT really an event or a destination but should rather be this idea of constant improvement — the journey.

Check out this episode and set a big goal today!

“My goals are posted on my website for the world to see, JackDaly.net”

At 59, Jack Daly did his first Ironman Triathlon! Today's he's closing in on 100 marathons and has the goal to complete one on every continent! When Martin catches up with him in this H2G interview he's preparing to go compete at the USA Triathlon "nationals".

Jack wasn't always an athlete and that's at least one of the many lessons in this entertaining and educational episode. Jack Daly has an extensive list of "Bucket List experiences" an MBA and his sales expertise makes him a sought after speaker and consultant.

Although Jack's real specialty (as far as Martin is concerned) is his philosophy of "lifestyle by design" and throughout the episode you will learn the important lessons and mindsets, tools and tactics that helped him craft his unique and inspiring life. Yes, YOU GUESSED IT, it comes down to his HABITS and GOALS! ; )

"Habit is a cobweb at first and a cable at last." ~Chinese Proverb

Let's say you have a habit of doing push-ups every morning. At what point does a habit cease to become a habit?

Well, it turns out that psychologist, Clark C. Hull introduced something he labeled "habit strength" many years ago. As Martin puts it, his "formula" was a little eccentric, perhaps too complicated and Martin set out to reintroduce HabitStrength™ but make it much easier to apply and understand.

Just like a muscle, habit is strengthened with consistency over time. By following the P.A.R.R. methodology anyone is able to increase their HabitStrength™

Plan. Act. Record. Reassess. P.A.R.R. is The Habit Factor's proprietary methodology to help anyone develop habits and increase their HabitStrength™. After each successive 28 day period (4 weeks) the participant, if they've registered 85% or better against their targets can "raise the bar."

The fact is HABIT DEVELOPMENT demands three core elements/ ingredients... Knowledge, Skill (capacity to do the work), DESIRE.

Here's a blog post to add some depth to the idea: Skill vs Habit

This episode is chock-full of tips, tools and techniques to help you master your focus and to be more productive! Martin and Henry discuss focus in an age of high technology and perpetual distraction.

A few KEYS covered include: deep breathing, knowing you energy patterns, setting minimum focus time and changing your environment!

“Before fear becomes fear, it’s pressure.” Martin and Henry dive deep into WHY we all seem to procrastinate more than we’d like. Spoiler alert: The biggest reason is resisting the possibility of future PAIN, FEAR and/or uncertainty.

Then they delve into the various mindsets and strategies they use to address and overcome procrastination. Talk of "The Pressure Paradox™" comes up as it must!

How do you “refract” PRESSURE? Just like light refracts through a prism Martin proposes that each of us refract pressure and procrastination is just a negative form of refraction based again upon fear, uncertainty and the concern for future pain. Check this one out!

After Martin and Henry bust out their GTRs (Good Things Report) they tackle the power of accountability. Henry calls out MG on his confession about tracking just 50% with his accountability group. Then, Martin shares the significance of TRACKING + ACCOUNTABILITY and the mindset that helped him to stay motivated!

Questions to ponder: What are you comparing yourself against? How much better are you doing just by the act of tracking in the first place?

Martin shares that The Habit Factor's Facebook Accountability Page has been critical to help him push through stagnation and how fun it is to see others progress and how everyone encourages each other!

They even review the fundamental components of habit development (the absolute requirements PLUS the best method for habit development; P.A.R.R. ) and examples of working with others who’ve realized a great ancillary benefits even if and when they were tracking the wrong habit and chasing the wrong goal!

In this, the first episode of the new season Martin welcomes Henry Evans of "Hour a Day Entrepreneur" fame and "Get Clear Marketing" as the season’s new co-host and they get right into the topic du jour, “Theme Days”.

When you think about the most successful organizations they do one thing well: they are consistent! Consistency of behavior is achieved via a rhythmic, habit-pattern sort of scheduling that takes advantage of the natural rhythms in nature. Hence, we have a calendar and a clock. So, for instance, management teams will meet on Mondays. Or your gardener always shows up on a Tuesday and Church is always on Sunday. etc.

Consider how you can employ the same idea to your productivity! The key question becomes, how are YOU going to establish a rhythm of behavior (habits) that support your or your organizations goals. Rhythmic behavior is a great way to SOLVE problems ensuring that problem areas get routine, systematic attention and treatment.

For more on the topic you can read Martin's post
