Jim Kwik researched ‘Geniuses’ in different fields where they are committed to life-long learning ~ artists, musicians….different industries….the following are notes from a video-segment regarding his genius mind hacks.
If you want to create change and a new habit, go through and address the Different Levels of Learning:
**Ask yourself, “Where is a Genius doing these things and when are they doing them (time of day)?”
FIND WHEN **YOU** ARE MOST PRODUCTIVE:
Some people are early birds/some night owls ~~> So think about when you personally are able to mentally focus at a specific task at hand (Self Awareness) FIND YOUR SWEET-SPOT LIKE GENIUSES DO.
We grow, to impact others
~Reading each day
~Create your To do list
~Your not-to-do- list (usually is longer)
Beliefs/Values (Your ‘Why’ and why you do what you do)
Know your “Why” ~ it must be bigger than yourself, so you can follow through and power through when times get tough. (Good Read: Find Your Why by Simon Sinek)
Your daily ‘habits’ to get you to the next level: Get your environment in order for best productivity
Skill Acquisition/Behavior (‘What’?)
How will you best retain the skills you need to help you get to the next level?
When and Where (Environment): Time of Day & Environment
Laptop (anchored for work) ~ Productivity Time
Ipad (anchored for entertainment only) ~ You have a dedicated amount of time for entertainment
Bedroom (sacred space) ~ Train yourself to rest in this space, especially if you have trouble sleeping.
What to take away from this:
Once you get all your Different Levels of Learning in place, will you have the best chance to hack your way to peak performance in your field.
