Internal Scorecard #7: Long-Term Trajectories and Habit Installations

INTERNAL SCORECARD #7

This is the seventh internal scorecard I've posted. I put these up as a way for you to see what production and productivity actually look like (with the up's and down's, and so on), and as a measure for myself of what's happening and what's to come.

This covers 30 June to 6 July.

DALIO OF THE WEEK

"Goals are the things that you really want to achieve, while desires are things you want that can prevent you from reaching your goals—as I previously explained, desires are typically first-order consequences. For example, a goal might be physical fitness, while a desire is the urge to eat good-tasting, unhealthy food (i.e., a first-order consequence) that could undermine you obtaining your fitness goal. So, in terms of the consequences they produce, goals are good and desires are bad." -- Ray Dalio, Principles, p27

Have you ever been really struggling with a problem. You're sat down with a blank sheet of paper in front of you. Really racking your brains and wrestling with the issues. Only for the next day whilst doing something repetitive the answer just pops into your head.

But first...

Ideas may seem to just be peaks appearing over the tops of the cloud of your mind. But they are really built upon mountains of your underlying knowledge. Its not true that some people are naturally creative and others are not. Creativity is simply re-synthesising and linking different concepts. Some people just gather more raw information. Then spend more time thinking about it. To become creative you just need to follow these 5 steps.
