How does the behavior scale? 

**NEW: Text MG direct your toughest #habits and #goals questions now: 619-547-1915

The Habit Factor® "5-Day Challenge" ENDS THIS WEDNESDAY 10-28-20! Because all exercises and live sessions are recorded, you can still sign up today: https://thehabitfactor.com/challenge

Today's MBM brings us to the idea of compounding behaviors. It's fairly trendy to hear entrepreneurs talk about "scaling" their business, and about the importance of business models that will scale.

If you can make a profit with 10 customers, it stands to reason you want to be able to get to 1,000 customers as effortlessly as possible. The right "model" will allows that, but the wrong one? Well, it will just create a nightmare, or in a best case scenario will be limited in its growth potential.

When it comes to our behaviors, it's certainly worth asking some similar questions: "How does IT scale?" In other words, how does that one behavior scale? What will the compounding effects of that behavior be in a year, or even better, five years?  A pack of cigarettes a day? How does that scale? Ice cream every night before bed? How does that scale?

Arriving habitually late to work? How does that scale?

You get the picture? Our choices should or could be better determined by asking that simple question: How does IT scale?

This goes for questionable decisions that might be better guided by the same simple question. How does it scale?

Enjoy the episode!

"The map is not the territory." ~Alfred Korzybski

**NEW: Text MG direct your toughest #habits and #goals questions now: 619-547-1915

The Habit Factor® "5-Day Challenge" starts THIS THURSDAY 10-22-20! Sign-up today: https://thehabitfactor.com/challenge

Alfred Korzybski was a Polish-American independent scholar who developed general semantics, which he viewed as both distinct from, and more encompassing than, the field of semantics.

He argued that human knowledge of the world is limited both by the human nervous system and the languages humans have developed. (A topic previously covered here: https://podcast.thehabitfactor.com/language-and-thought-s4-49/)

Thus, Korzybski posited, no one can have direct access to reality, given that the most we can know is that which is filtered through the brain's responses to reality.

"The mind is for having ideas, not holding them."
~David Allen

*Important Note*: The "GET UNSTUCK 5-Day Challenge" begins 10-22-20! Sign up today: https://thehabitfactor.com/challenge

A cup is designed to be empty, not full. Its value comes from being able to fill it up. This is true for minds, as well. Keeping an open and empty mind allows for creativity, innovation, and learning.

MG shares the classic parable about the Zen master who pours tea for his student and just keeps pouring—even though the tea is spilling out of the cup onto the table and floor. The student jumps to his feet. "Master," he screams. "My cup is full already!"

"Then you see," says the master. "I, too, cannot put anything in your cup if it is full already."

Learning new languages tends to be much easier for young children, not because they're smarter, but rather because they don't come with preconceived notions, judgements, and opinions about what they will learn or even how they will learn it.

The key to keeping an empty mind is to dispose of thoughts that aren't serving you, writing down ideas so they don't fill your mind. With a clear and empty mind, you'll be far more at peace and hold more creativity.

Enjoy the show!

"To go far you must begin near, and the nearest step is the most important one." 
~Jiddu Krishnamurti

One of the reasons it's called, The Habit Factor® is because the habits we perform most often, powerfully compound over time.

Where you are right now, is the result of your habits compounding. Nobody becomes rich or fat overnight. (lottery aside)

Small actions compounded (over time)
reveal massive results (positive or negative) 
(excerpt, The Habit Factor® 2010)

Today's episode is a classic reset for The Habit Factor and we're gonna add the explicit tag just in case; "What are the habits that really freakin' matter in our life?

Give that question some thought and the best answer can only be; the habits you perform the most.

So, what are they?

MG runs through a wide array of habits beginning with our breathing. Breathing, he points out, only influences everything.

Then there is your THINKING. And, categorically, our thinking about important aspects within our life, ourselves, our self-concept, others and even the world at large.

Then there are our wellness habits. Our habits of diet, exercise and sleep. These are perfect examples of habits that compound the most.

Then consider our relationship habits. If relationships constitute up to 85% of our life's happiness, what relationship habits are you practicing?

Enjoy the show!
