"The successful person is just the average person, focused."

Why are deadlines important? Deadlines create pressure. Pressure creates focus and concentration, which are essential components of productivity and creativity.

The accordion method, much like the whimsical musical instrument, works by creating pressure and then releasing it.

The accordion is a terrific model for how anyone can intentionally use pressure to be more focused and productive.

The challenge for many people is that they don't appreciate the value of pressure, largely because it creates discomfort. Thus, few people impose deadlines on themselves.

Many believe life is already too pressure-riddled—adding more pressure would be too stressful.

The interesting thing is that, without controls and constraints, such as deadlines, human energy is boundless and unfocused. That doesn't mean you never get tired; it means you're not directing your energy with focus and concentration upon a goal or target.

Goals, targets, and milestones create pressure that guides our energy!

The beauty is that The Habit Factor® method, by design, involves a series of constraints that helps anyone become more productive and even more creative.

"So many Goo-Roos preach the idea that you should just focus on your strengths. The reason it's called 'Personal Development' is it involves both—improving your weaknesses and capitalizing on strengths."

"Shouldn't people just focus on what they are good at?" Someone asked MG this question when he recommended tracking fitness habits even if fitness isn't someone's strength. 

It's crucial to point out that The Habit Factor® methodology is both a specific process to develop habits by following P.A.R.R., and a general framework that allows the user to identify their goal along with the supportive habits that will help them achieve that goal.

The Habit Factor® allows the end-user to decide upon any habit to track. If they only want to track their strengths, they can.

However, since traits like discipline, focus, and concentration are habits that can be cultivated—and they help to foster other habits—they are foundational. Similarly, habits related to fitness and wellness are not only foundational because they improve our energy, they greatly influence our probability of achieving any goal. 

The moral of the story is that personal development is a never-ending pursuit that involves both the cultivation of new skills and habits that may not be strengths and optimizing our strengths. 

Not all habits are equal, and challenging oneself with a sincere desire to progress is the path to self-improvement.

"Effort is the special ingredient that helps one to develop discipline. P.A.R.R. is the process that reduces the effort."

Effort, as a concept, is so significant that it's part of the Buddhist Noble Eightfold Path.

While there are very few things we can control directly, our effort is one of them.

In a post-game press conference, pursuing his 4th NBA title, Steph Curry reminded the press, "The one thing I can control is my effort."

What makes the topic interesting is that it's the desire to be lazy—to put in less effort— that often sparks innovation and creativity. Exhibit A, B, and C: The lawn mower, automobile, and blender.

While laziness may inspire creativity and innovation, it's putting in the cliched 110% effort toward our passions and goals that helps to assure their realization.

The guaranteed formula for success is to do both: Work smart and hard.

Further, it's important to know that energy can constrain effort. A sick person can't give maximum effort compared to when they're well. 

Most importantly, a lack of energy and effort will constrain our success and achievement, at least in the beginning. Even the worker who praises themself for only working four hours a week most certainly put in 80-plus hours a week in the beginning.

"An essential ingredient to scheduling and habit building is experimenting."

MG and Jen discuss this week's all important topic: How to use scheduling to best cultivate habits.

In short, the day and time you choose to cultivate a habit largely depends upon the habit itself.

If the habit is creative, such as "writing" you may want to set aside the times of day you are most creative. If the habit is exercise related, than you'll want to identify the best times and days you'll have the time and energy.

By following P.A.R.R. (Plan, Act, Record & Reassess), and identifying the "targets" days (and times), you'll have a plan to cultivate each habit.

Further, P.A.R.R. is flexible enough and allows you the ability to skip "target days" and/or continue to experiment with different times and days in subsequent four-week tracking periods.

Most importantly scheduling simply reaffirms one's intention to cultivate the habit. However, it's only via the daily tracking data that one can assess and experiment.
