"If I gave you $1,000 to track 3 habits for one day could you do it? Everyone knows that they could!"

Martin recaps seven notable and common mistakes people make when trying to develop new habits.

#1) They forget IT'S A PROCESS! Unfortunately, many believe habit tracking is an ALL or nothing proposition! "It doesn't matter if you've failed 163 times, you are experimenting—keep trying!"

#2) They simply put a dot next to the habit and move on! When it comes to habit tracking, do NOT do what 99% of habit trackers recommend...simply put a dot and move on. Don't do that! Search: "P.A.R.R. Plan, Act, Record & Reassess and The Habit Factor"

#3) They focus on THE NEGATIVE HABIT. Put your energy and focus into cultivating the NEW habit! Put more time and attention on the new habit that should replace the old one.

#4) They do not understand what a "Tracking period" is. People do not understand the significance of "Tracking Periods" and exactly HOW LONG THEY SHOULD BE TRACKING! How long do you think you should be tracking?

#5) They do not add notes to their tracking! When it comes to tracking, besides adding a dot (which is very weak), they don't add comments! Adding notes to your tracking reaffirms your commitment and your intention!

#6) They think bursts of energy are important. The cultivation of habit rests upon consistency over a period of time. Daily bursts of energy do not facilitate habit development. It may feel good to give yourself many dots in one day, but it's not valuable relative to habit development.

#7) They underestimate the influence that the environment has on cultivating habits.
 
Personal mastery is simply a one-day-at-a-time 'event'.

If you can "win" today, you can do "win" tomorrow. Do that more days than not, and you'll compile a remarkable life! It begins with habit tracking the RIGHT WAY! ; )

For more info: just google P.A.R.R. and The Habit Factor! 👊

"Habits and goals, by design, complement each other."

 
Oh, the irony. When The Habit Factor® was published in 2010, the idea of using habits to achieve goals as a process for goal achievement was unheard of.

The Habit Factor's subtitle demonstrates its originality at the time: An Innovative Method to Align Habits with Goals to Achieve Success.

Due to its predominantly negative connotation, all of the prior goal achievement best practices excluded habit entirely.

Processes like S.M.A.R.T. goals did not mention habits.
Even scientific research papers that studied the relationship between habits and goals missed this important concept: The cultivation of habits, when aligned to a goal, will help you to achieve your goal more quickly.

Fast forward to today, and it's almost like the exercise where 10 people line up to pass along a message. As the message moves from one person to the next, it becomes bastardized.
 
The same can be said for The Habit Factor's original message. Somewhere along the way, habits have somehow become "better" than goals. This is erroneous and dichotomous; they complement each other.
 
In this episode, MG reviews a few distinct qualities about each and how they work together.

"Everything is difficult before it is easy." ~Thomas Fuller

Resistance comes in many forms. The wind is a terrific example.

It turns out that without any wind trees cannot grow strong and will topple over.

The same is observed in our life. If we are without resistance—if there is no pressure—how can we grow stronger?

Pursing goals and ideals provides ample resistance to grow, learn and become stronger.

Lifting weights, as an example, proves resistance makes us stronger.

The wind offers other clues. MG happens to notice that even boats lying at anchor, FACE THE WIND.

This is analogous to us facing our problems as opposed to avoiding them.

Jen shares a story of finally facing a business banking issue after avoiding it for a long time.

The result: She was relieved and all that anticipated pain was way overblown. She was even able to be of service to the banker.

The moral of the story: Most of the time, facing our challenges is our best course of action.

The wind teaches us how we can grow and become stronger!

"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.

"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.

"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.

"A ritual is simply a series of habits."

MG and Jen discuss a particularly interesting relationship between habits and rituals that is rarely, if ever, talked about.

Consider the times you have sudden insight; driving, showering, napping, sleeping, jogging, or lifting weights.

Performing habits tends to trigger creative insight, perhaps due to the brain wave frequency in which habit operates—the Alpha and Theta levels.

By definintion, habits require little or no conscious thought. This simple aspect is what frees up one's mind to allocate resources elsewhere—a space that allows the subconsicious to help solve problems that the conscious mind had been working on previously.

"Be quick, but don't hurry."
~Coach Wooden


Festina Lente: Augustus, the Roman emperor, thought so much of the adage that its symbol ended up on an ancient Roman coin—a dolphin wrapped around an anchor.

What is Festina Lente?

Festina Lente is the wise and powerful reminder that our time is precious and limited. Thus, it's imperative to move (and live) with a sense of urgency while at the same time remaining balanced and calm.

Legendary basketball coach John Wooden, who likely rephrased the sentiment, used to tell his players, "Be quick, but don't hurry."

Quickness is essential, but hurrying and losing our balance is a waste of time and resources.

Thus, we must move with urgency while retaining our poise and balance.

The beauty is this: Festina Lente could be the motto for The Habit Factor®, as it parallels its philosophy to a tee.

The Habit Factor® methodology demands users identify a key essential outcome in their life (creating urgency). Still, it clearly demonstrates that the path to a goal is via the intentional and deliberate cultivation of that goal's supportive habits.

Life is short, and time is precious. It's crucial to plan and act accordingly.

"How well you load the dishes determines the quality of the wash."

Once again, we revisit the dishwasher in this episode, "The Dishwasher 2."

The idea of proper dishwasher loading calls to mind the GIGO concept. GIGO simply means Garbage In, Garbage Out.

GIGO originated in the programming world, and the idea applies to many other aspects of our lives.

Consider your fitness level relative to your exercise and diet: Garbage In, Garbage Out.

Many famous scientists, spiritualists, and philosophers contend that the same concept applies to the quality of your thinking and your life's results: Garbage In, Garbage Out.

Learn how the basic, everyday task of loading the dishwasher can be your path to enlightenment!

"It costs $0.00 to become a master of habit and skill development. Understanding how to cultivate habitstrength™ is your first key." ~Grunburg

Forgive the swearing!

For 12-plus years, Martin has taught and preached that habit development for humans has little to do with Cue, Routine, Reward – aka the "Habit-Loop" – and much more to do with intention, action, and reflection.

The "Habit Loop" concept originated after a study of rodents.

Unfortunately, the well-intended "Habit-Loop" advice has proliferated all over the internet, yet it provides HUMANS with very little understanding of how to intentionally build habits.

Humans possess three powerful, innate capacities: CHOICE, INTENTION, and REFLECTION. By following The Habit Factor's PARR methodology – Plan, Act, Record, and Reassess – one can easily develop habitstrength over time. 

Once you understand habitstrength, you can – and should – apply PARR to develop any habits or skills that align with your most important goals!

"Golf is a game of inches and the most important are the six inches between your ears." ~Arnold Palmer

Much like golf, LIFE is often a game of inches.

It's the "six inches" betwen our ears that we tell ourselves all sorts of stories. Stories about ourselves and the world at large. These stories tend to reveal themselves in our decisions, actions and results.

At any given moment, one could be telling themselves an infinite number of stories. Yet, most of us aren't too discerning about which ones consume our attention.

Almost all breakthroughs in goal achievment and personal tranformation, including habit change, begin with a new and different story.

Further, the listerner is challenged to listen to which stories they 'play' habitually (on autopilot), and how those stories have impacted their life.

"Nobody likes burpess until they love burpees."

Without getting too metaphysical, it's important to realize LIFE is simply a one-day-at-a-time "event".

Thus, the importance of cultivating the habit of exercise, which helps to optimize one's emotional and physical wellness from one day to the next.

MG was contemplating why he enjoyed burpees so much. The answer suprised him. He thought he exercised to stay fit, but that is really the secondary benefit.

The primary benefit; exercising "tunes" one's emotions for the day favorably.

The exercise habit has at least three benefits:

1) It primes one's emotions
2) It provides self-efficacy and,
3) It provides an easy "WIN" for the day, regardless of how the rest of the day shapes up.

Approaching each day with a better emotional disposition, due to the habit of exercise is the real benefit of working out.

Enjoy the episode!

"I must've interviewed 50 business people that summer...they all had a common theme—GOALS!"~Jack Daly

H2G welcomes back the legendary business sales coach and icon, Jack Daly.

Jack's releasing his 10th book, Life By Design.

The 15-time Ironman competitor has also completed 100 marathons in 50 states and on seven continents.

He achieves his goals and lives life to the fullest by following his own Life by Design techniques.

As a 13-year-old caddie at a country club, he was both curious and intentional.

Comparing the lifestyle of his hardworking father to the men at the country club, who golfed on weekdays, Jack was curious to learn what they did differently.

By the end of the summer, almost all the members knew the young caddie.

The payoff for Jack was enormous: He tripped upon a process that he's been living for decades and now shares in his latest book.

At 73, Jack still employs these practices each and every day.

Jack DESIGNS his life with intention—and tracks all the activities and habits that are important for his goals, rather than just allowing life to happen.

While Jack readily admits that life often "happens anyway," he insists it's important to understand what you can control and move toward your ideal life with intention, every day!

Enjoy the episode!

"Habit: A shackle for the free."~Ambrose Bierce

In 2009, MG was tasked with developing a logo for The Habit Factor® app. The vision of the infinity symbol was one that he couldn't escape. 

He proceeded to integrate the infinity symbol as the cross-beam within the letter "H".

The reason for the infinity symbol?

The more he reflected upon habit, the more the idea of universal patterns came to mind.

MG shared these ideas when he was invited to present at TEDx in the United Arab Emerits, back in 2011.

It turns out habit patterns are everywhere and for good reason. Energy has a tendency toward pattern and rhythm.

That means even our human energy—our behavior—forms into patterns (for better or worse).

Think of how you drive to work, brush your teeth and even the meals you eat.

The only important distinction MG was intent on sharing; unlike other creatures, humans have the capacity to establish new habits patterns and even break others, at will.

Thus, the infinity symbol within the logo had to be broken, symbolizing one's ability to 'at will' form new habit patterns.

Unlike other creatures in nature, humans have the incredible capacity to develop any habit pattern that is aligned with their goals!

Today, so many other habit apps and books have since followed using the same imagery— an infinity symbol to represent HABIT.

Enjoy the episode!

"Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such."~Henry Miller

What's the main difference between "successful" people and "failures"?

Arguably, it's that they've simply compiled more daily "wins" over their lifetime than loses.

It's actually a bit more nuanced than that, as any given day may provides critical defining "moments".

What's an example of a critical defining moment?

Let's say someone or something disappoints you. Now you're angry and frustrated.

How are you going to respond?

Each moment presents a bifurcation point; an opportunity to stay on the path or, to fall off the path.

In short, "successful" people stay on "the path" from one moment to the next, more often than not.

How do they do that?

To stay on The PATH (prior episode), they respond rather than react!

When problems arise, expectations are dashed, in short, when "sh*t happens", "successful" people choose to respond better;  more positively, most of the time.

It's the "unsuccessful"—the ones that react emotionally, flip out and therefore, push themselves further and further off "The Path".

In total, over one's lifetime, all of these moments compound from moment to moment, day after day.

Enjoy the episode!

"If work expands to fill the time allotted, then you can count on 'stuff'  expanding to fill the space allotted."

Aristotle once observed, "Nature abhors a vacuum."

This week, MG combines A's brilliant observation with Cyrile Northcote Parkinson's "law," known as "Parkinson's Law" — "Work expands to fill the time allotted."

The resultant corollary: "Stuff expands to fill the space allotted."

To illustrate his point, MG shares a couple of quick stories from his home: "The Drawer of Death" and the "Closet of Death."

While nobody actually died in either, these spaces are consummed with "STUFF"! They are filled with everything, and yet, whenever you go looking for something, you can't find it.

The reason for sharing this?

YOUR MIND is the drawer and closet—your mind is SPACE to be filled.

While keeping an 'empty' mind is a noble pursuit, it's impossible for extended periods of time.

Even the awareness of possessing an empty mind, paradoxically, produces a thought, which proves it cannot be empty!

The beauty is, when you know your mind won't be empty for too long, your mission is to fill it with "good" stuff—stuff that supports your goals and ideals!

Don't let your mind become the drawer or closet of death.

Choose to fill your mind with good, supportive thoughts and stories that work to support your goals and ideals.

If your mind is going to get filled, choose to intentionally fill it with the good stuff!

Enjoy the episode!

"Give someone just 30 seconds, and if they're being honest, they can tell you the one or two skills that, when crafted to excellence, could change their life."

Last week's episode, How Can I Use This?, was all about the 3 R's—being Responsible, Resourceful, and Resilient.

This week, MG explores a concept he learned when training for his first Ironman: limiters.

The Ironman is a triathlon comprised of three separate skills (in order): Swimming, Cycling, and Running.

In Going Long!, a great book that was recommended to MG, the author advises focusing most of your training time on your key limiter—that is, the one weakness likely to hold you back or most significantly impact your finish.

For MG, the limiter was obvious right away: running!

Accordingly, he spent 80% of his training time trying to improve his running technique—his limiter.

By doing this, he became a better runner, and the conditioning the running provided became a nice overlap effect for the other two events, swimming and cycling.

You can use this same strategy—focusing on your most significant limiter—as you pursue your goals and professional aspirations.

What one or two skills, if you were to develop them to excellence, would take your career to the next level?

Most people immediately know the answer.

While many "Goo Roos" advise people to ignore their weaknesses and focus only on strengths, the truth is, many weaknesses must be addressed and can't be outsourced.

For instance, nobody is going to lose weight or get fit for you. And, in some cases, you may have to be your own sales or marketing person, even if you don't see these areas as your strengths.

Whether it's writing, public speaking, marketing, or sales, identify your key limiter as it relates to your most essential goals.

Much like completing an Ironman, identifying and improving your limiter will go a long way toward helping you reach your personal and professional goals.

Enjoy the episode!

Chances are very good that your greatest problem at this moment could become your greatest asset in the future!

"How can I use this?"

That's a question you ought to develop the habit of asking.

It can be an incredibly valuable question.

Chances are very good that the biggest problem you are facing right now may represent your biggest opportunity and future breakthrough.

Are you "poor," perhaps having a hard time making money?

Terrific! How can you use that?

Are you having a problem gaining and keeping friends?

Terrific! How can you use that?

Are you overweight and out of shape?

Terrific! How can you use that?

The fact is, your current problems and weaknesses are excellent opportunities in disguise—if approached with the proper mindset, encapsulated in the 3 R's.

Responsible
It's your problem. You own it, and nobody is going to solve it for you.

Resourceful
You are a creature—a creative individual who is capable of coming up with novel solutions!

Resilient
Failure is just an opportunity to begin anew, more intelligently! You manage to process the "failures" as information and adapt appropriately.

The truth is, it's your life, and much like being on a deserted island, there is nobody to bitch and complain to.

Rather, you have to dig in and apply the 3 R's!

In the movie Castaway, Tom Hanks's character had a made-up friend, Wilson (a Wilson volleyball). He complained to Wilson and talked through his problems with Wilson.

Talking through his problems with Wilson gave Hanks's character the opportunity to articulate his frustrations and concerns, which ultimately helped him create solutions.

You can and should do the same.

Articulate and even write out your challenges; assess and review your weaknesses, and then ask, "How can I use this!"

Enjoy the episode!
