"Being off-balance is a sign to adjust, to move in the opposite direction—to regain equilibrium."

Far too many Goo-Roos insist that balance is BOGUS—that BALANCE doesn't exist.

What they appear to be missing is the dynamism of life. Life is hardly a static event. In fact, the very sensation that one is off-balance is proof that balance exists!

The key is the awareness.The sensation of being off-balance presents an opportunity to make an adjustment.

The truth is, everyone is off-balance from time to time, arguably MOST of the time. It's the adjustments that help keep one in balance and harmony.

Under a deadline to complete a project, it's easy to lose balance, for example, not eat right or exercise.

A 'successful' entrepreneur recently posted about his breakdown in an elevator just two years prior. His great lesson was that he was too far off-balance, taking work too seriously and not enjoying the process.

Observe any tightrope walker—take a picture of them at any moment in time—and they will be off-balance. Yet, if they're good, they'lll make it to the other side. Why? Because they make adjustments along the way!

"Today is the eight day of the month. Tomorrow is the 13th." ~Zen Koan

Skills vs. habits. Habits vs. skills. What's the difference?

Bound by language, experts in behavioral science tend to struggle as they attempt to delineate the two. (See Zen koan above).
 
MG suggests these scientists are missing the most important aspect of their relationship: How similar habits and skills are!

There are many favorable reasons to regard habits and skills as nearly identical.
 
First, it helps to remove the predominately negative connotation that habits carry. Skills are rarely, if ever, thought of as "bad" or negative.

Second, it reinforces how POSITIVE HABIT BUILDING FOLLOWS THE SAME PROCESS AS SKILL BUILDING. This is precisely what The Habit Factor's P.A.R.R. method has taught since 2010.
 
When it comes to developing good habits, the same sort of desire, effort, and practice is required that skills demand. Which underscores how ineffective "The Habit Loop" is when it comes to intentional habit building.

Further, by juxtaposing P.A.R.R. against "The four levels of competence" model, developed by Martin M. Broadwell, we can see how both habit and skill capability improve similarly.

LEVEL ONE: Unconscious Incompetence:
I don't even know that tying my shoes will be helpful.

LEVEL TWO: Conscious Incompetence:
I've just started to learn, and I'm really struggling.

LEVEL THREE: Conscious Competence: I'm much better at tying my shoes now, and it's getting easier.

LEVEL FOUR:  Unconscious Competence: The highest level: I tie my shoes without even looking or much thought!

Level four is where both habits and skills share the greatest similarity and, interestingly enough, they reside in the same place in the brain!.

It always takes effort and practice to develop good habits, just like it does for skills.
 
Enjoy the show!

"Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things they are transformed." ~Thich Naht Hanh

In a universe comprised of energy, it's impossible to extract negativity. So, what is it's value?

It turns out, negativity has tremendous value. Within medicine for instance, a negative Covid-19 test is very positive.

Science experiments with negative results bring the scientist closer to a correct solution.

Negativity can be problematic in relationships. Most humans tend to gravitate toward positive, kind and loving relationships.

Even though people who are negative may be smarter or funnier, they are often cynical and pessimistic. Too much negativity leads one toward isolation and loneliness.

With a little awareness and effort, like tracking new positive habits, a negative personality can become more positive.

"Genius is the infinite capacity for taking pains."
~Thomas Carlyle

Pain is something everyone can relate to. Pain hurts.

Yet, what happens when we pursue a goal and along the way, encounter pain? Should we just quit?

Another definition of pain is "careful effort; great care or trouble."

Pain is often a requirement for growth and learning. And, pain is a key, leading indicator that one is on the path toward something meaningful and worthwhile. Hence, Carlyle's great quote above.

Your goal may be getting more fit, or writing the next great novel. Rest assured, tremendous pain stands between you and the desired outcome!

Strangely, it was a tweet that inspired this episode.

The man behind the tweet insisted that it was a high tolerance for pain that keeps people stuck; in undesirable jobs, relationships, etc.

The truth is, it's more likely the opposite. Chances are good that they believe making any change will be more painful than staying where they are.

Unfortunately, the desire for stasis—to remain unchanged—in an ever-changing world, is unrealistic.

Thus, the importance of becoming comfortable with change and the type of pain that is felt when one heads toward their most important goals and ideals.
