StuartSmalley.jpg Because I'm good enough, I'm smart enough and gosh darn it, people like me! picture by evolutionsfinest Well, so this is a bit like out of Saturday Night Live! :)   I have set my goal for Base Camp Everest and now I need to get myself in shape to do it.  So a bit like in Saturday Night Live, I’m trying these visual ques motivational tricks.  From all the self-improvement, psyche  books this is supposed to be a VERY powerful tool.   I”m using this for my business now- but I have NEVER tried this to apply to myself.

So, time for something new.

Posted visual quos around the house as a reminder of my goal.   Honestly, it feels silly – BUT – its a different pattern from what I did before, so I’m curious to see how this plays out.   Alex was very helpful with this project – and was happy to help.   If this technique works, as according to literature it should, it would be nice for her to learn how we can self-motivate.

Beyond this, I have a book on cognitive behavior modification theory – one of the books I read – had suggested that Cognitive Behavior Modification is the best way to alters’ once behaviors – so I’m going to take this opportunity to learn about CBM techniques – and play with that as well.    

The cool thing is that I’m breaking the patterns that I have repeated year on year – so its interesting to experiment on yourself!

Here is what my home looks like now:
