163 days from now is my birthday.
Today’s the 18th day of utilizing the scientific method, kaizen, and blogging.
Today’s the 9th day of writing on 3 * 5 index cards.
I will execute the scientific method on:
“STEP OR STAGE #1 of the Scientific Method
“Solution of one problem – This often reveals other problems.”
What is a solution of one problem?
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 18)
– w/ my app?
“Whom could I ask for help or inspiration?” (Day 17)
“What is special about my creative process/talents/business team?” (Day 16)
What is special about my talent of developing software?
– It will help me make money
“What type of work would excite and fulfill me?” (Day 15)
“What is one thing I like about myself today?” (Day 14)
“If I were guaranteed not to fail, what would I be doing differently?” (Day 13)
“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 12)
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 11)
What is one small step I could take to improve my career?
– Apply step 1 of the scientific method to improve my career.
“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 10)
“What’s one good thing about this person?” (Day 9)
“What is one small thing that is special about me (or my spouse, or my organization)?” (Day 8)
– I like hanging out w/ my friends especially during UFC night.
“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 7)
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 6)
– Then once I reach 60 seconds, increase 1 second and stop at 01:59 minutes.
3. “When you are ready to practice mind sculpture, sit or lie down in a quiet, comfortable spot and close your eyes.” (Day 5)
– I practiced before dinner today.
4. “Imagine that you are in the difficult or uncomfortable situation and looking through your own eyes around you. What do you see? What is the setting? Who’s there? What do they look like? See the expressions on their faces, the clothes they are wearing, their posture.” (Day 4)
5. “Now expand your imagination to the rest of your senses. What are the sounds and smells and flavors and textures around you?” (Day 3)
– The sounds would be other people talking, tv.
– The smells would be the alcohol and food.
– The textures would be the softness of the chair and harndess of the wooden table.
6. “Without moving an actual muscle, imagine that you are performing the task. What are the words you use? What does your voice sound like and how does it resonate through your body? What are your physical gesures?” (Day 2)
7. “Imagine a positive response to your activity. If you are mindsculpting for public speaking, for example, see the audience leaning forward in their seats, looking responsive and interested. Hear the scratch of pencil on paper as some particularly enthusiastic people take notes.” (Day 1)
