Internal Scorecard #11 -- High Production, Shaky Habits

INTERNAL SCORECARD #11 -- HIGH PRODUCTION, SHAKY HABITS

A little over three months ago, it occurred to me to write up some notes on what actions and production are happening on my end -- this could help readers see the real nitty-gritty of triumphs and setbacks as I put initiatives into place in organization-building, productivity, habits, results. You could also see get various recommendations on technology and processes. And it's quite good for me to stay accountable.

The experiment seems to have been a success and people really love these and look forward to them.

This is the eleventh Internal Scorecard I've published. For reasons that will become quite apparent in a moment, this is a scorecard that covers double the normal length, the two-week span from 28 July to 10 August.

On The Art of Sanity

Do you find yourself constantly taking inventory of your life, your mood, your health? “Am I happy?” “I don't feel well!” , “I m tired.” Or the insidious “Why did he look at me that way” “ no one likes me”

As soon as we start thinking these kind of thoughts our mood drops and we tend to isolate our self and it becomes a part of our story. And it repeats itself until we believe it.

Have you ever noticed that as soon as you start analyzing or rating your performance while in a social situation your freeness, spontaneity and creativity disappear? That’s because your brain switches into a different mode of thinking, what I call computer thinking.

Computer thinking is an analytical narrow style of thinking that processes data. It has a proper place in our mental toolbox. But it should be used only when it’s skills are specifically needed.

If you spend time analyzing why “no one likes me,” your analytical mind will produce a lot of answers and probably most of them will reinforce the fear that “no one likes me.” It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
