"Life is a kind of Chess, in which we have often points to gain, and competitors or adversaries to contend with.” ~Benjamin Franklin

On this in-between-seasons Habits2Goals episode, we explore the fascinating Mind Bullet topic of chess. Chess is thousands of years old and encompasses infinite possibilities, confounding even the grand masters. Its strategies and complexities have dynamic applications to real life. 

When you play the game, whether against a person or a computer, your "goal" is clear: Get the king. On the way to your goal there will be many battles. Some pieces will be strategically sacrificed to protect another piece.

The entire way, you're forced to look at things logically from your end goal. 

Chess has many benefits, from raising confidence and IQ in children to enhancing your ability to focus and recollect. Chess develops your skills of foresight and planning; you see the layers you must wade through to get to the end goal. 

Chess is a phenomenal tool for strategic thinking and planning, utilizing foresight and protecting yourself and your assets.

But perhaps the greatest gift of chess is making you aware of your situation. You are at once offensive and defensive. You must constantly assess where you are being threatened. Which piece is exposed? Can it be sacrificed? Where am I vulnerable? In life and goal achievement, there's no greater question.

Listen in for a fascinating discussion of chess as a metaphor for the goal-achievement process, illustrating the strategic thinking, planning, defensive posturing and awareness you'll need on your own goal achievement journey. 

Enjoy the episode!

"The first step in the acquisition of wisdom is silence, the second listening, the third memory, the fourth practice, the fifth teaching others.” ~Solomon Ibn Gabirol 

Today's in-between-seasons Mind Bullet Monday delves into the idea of going deep and what it means for true wisdom and how it can help your own personal goal achievement journey. 

We've discussed wisdom in the past, and we know that mastery and learning come via repetition. In this vein, re-listening to a Brian Tracy podcast on relationships sparked a new gem of understanding.  around the concept of "going deep."

In the quote above, Solomon Ibn Gabriel's fifth step in the acquisition of wisdom — teaching others — means that you've learned something so thoroughly and completely that you can convey its nuances others. You have gone deep on the subject.

We all have some kind of remarkable and specific knowledge already — we've gone deep in those areas. But it's critical to stretch yourself and go deep in new areas, getting to know new subject matter so intimately you could teach it. When you do so, a deeper layer of understanding creates near-magical connections throughout your life.

The Habit Factor is a great example. By studying habit deeply and intimately, we came to the knowledge that if you focus on core and recurring behaviors, they will lead you to your goals more quickly. 

Another example: Studying pressure deeply from multiple angles for years yielded The Pressure Paradox.

YOU can do this — with any subject matter. It's a challenge, but the more you can study a single subject that truly piques your interest,  you will begin to see new and interesting relationships between that subject and the world around you. Your knowledge of that subject will grow and become multidimensional, bringing value to your life and your own pursuit of goals than you can ever imagine.

Listen in for a multi-layered discussion about going deep on a subject that excites you, creating connections you never knew were possible, and ultimately helping your goals in ways you never could have imagined. 

Enjoy the episode!

"Nobody improves the world without first improving themselves."

On this in-between-seasons Mind Bullet Monday, we discuss a topic that helped spur the Habit Factor itself: challenge and change. 

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.

Today we're taking a look at CHALLENGE and CHANGE through the prism of a few examples. The goal is to inspire YOU to find/create a new, personal challenge!

First, we reviewed MG's personal "burpee" challenge in a prior episode. Feeling the need to challenge and improve himself physically, he set a goal back in January to do 15 burpees a day for 30 days — a goal that quickly changed to 30 burpees (done within five minutes) for for thirty days straight. 98 days later... his streak ended doing 45 a day on the "off" days and 120 on "target" days.

Following P.A.R.R. (Plan, Act, Record, Reassess) MG upped the challenge in each successive four week tracking period. By the time the streak ended on April 11, he was doing as many as 5 sets of 15 daily. Habitstrength kicked in! 

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.

Secondly, MG is planning his next goal: The Rim-to-Rim hike of the Grand Canyon, leaving the south rim and hiking across up to the north rim, about 25 miles. The ante has been upped already to add another 25 miles the next day hiking back to the south rim again. We'll keep you posted!

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.

Listen in for more on jumping into new challenges with a "now or never" attitude, developing a sense of urgency for your self-improvement, and creating your own personal challenges to create YOUR change.

Enjoy the episode!

"All successful people learn that success is buried on the other side of frustration . . .  You get through [roadblocks] by plowing through frustration, taking each setback as feedback you can learn from, and pushing ahead." ~Tony Robbins

Today's topic on this in-between-seasons Mind Bullet Monday is the significance of frustration as it relates to habit and goal achievement.

First, a little background and context. Circling back to last season, we focused an episode on Tony Robbins and his Keys to Wealth and Happiness. The first key is: "You must learn how to handle frustration." Frustration is a toxic byproduct of pressure that can actually block our success.

What cause frustration? There's other people, impatience, expectations, and a lack of control, among other things. But the only solution for frustration is YOU and your ability to manage and mitigate this negative force. 

Viewed through the prism of goal achievement, when we're frustrated, we're dissipating our energy. Our attention becomes fractured and unfocused. Goals become harder to reach.

The irony here is that goal achievement itself is incredibly frustrating. So if you're easily frustrated, prone to poor emotional control -- and if you're not developing the mental muscle to manage that frustration -- you're going to have a very hard time achieving your goals. 

The better we get at managing frustration, the more energy we conserve for the things that are truly important to us.

Listen in for more on developing the emotional intelligence to turn the page, accept the situation causing frustration, and move on to continue on your path toward your goals.

Enjoy the episode!
