168 days from now is my birthday.
Today’s the 13th day of utilizing the scientific method, kaizen, and blogging.
Today’s the 4th day of writing on 3 * 5 index cards.
I will execute the scientific method on:
“STEP OR STAGE #1 of the Scientific Method
“Previous experience – You have some thing or theory to investigate.”
What is your previous experience?
What is something you have to investigate?
What is something you have previous experience of that you have to investigate?
What theory do you have to investigate?
– 80/20 rule
– Parkinson’s law
What is a theory? How does a theory exist?
What theory do you have previous experience of that you have to investigate?
On to doing kaizen. p. 48 of ‘One Small Step Can Change Your Life’
“What’s one thing I wish to contribute to the world with my book, poem, song, or painting?” (Day 13)
– w/ my app?
“Whom could I ask for help or inspiration?” (Day 12)
“What is special about my creative process/talents/business team?” (Day 11)
What is special about my talent of developing software?
– I get to develop software that will improve facets of my life: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. How?
“What type of work would excite and fulfill me?” (Day 10)
“What is one thing I like about myself today?” (Day 9)
– I focused and finished something that had to be done.
“If I were guaranteed not to fail, what would I be doing differently?” (Day 8)
“If you are trying to reach a specific goal, ask yourself every day: What is one small step I could take toward reaching my goal?” (Day 7)
What is one small step I could take toward reaching my goal?
“What is one small step I could take to improve my health (or relationships, or career, or any other area)?” (Day 6)
What is one small step I could take to improve my career?
– Mind Sculpture.
“Is there a person at work or in my personal life whose voice and input I haven’t heard in a long time? What small question could I ask this person?” (Day 5)
“What’s one good thing about this person?” (Day 4)
“What is one small thing that is special about me (or my spouse, or my organization)?” (Day 3)
– I’m determined.
“1. Isolate a task either that you are afraid to do or that makes you uncomfortable. Try to give yourself at least a month before you actually have to perform this activity.” (Day 2)
2. “Decide how many seconds you’re willing to devote to mind sculpture for this task each day. Make sure you allot seconds, not minutes or hours; the time commitment should be so low that you can easily fulfill its requirements every single day. Repetition is important.” (Day 1)
– 30 seconds, then increase 1 second every day until I’m at 60 seconds.
