Habits 2 Goals: The Habit Factor® Podcast with Martin Grunburg

“You are born alone and you will die alone.” This week we investigate aloneness. Aloneness is different from loneliness. MG discusses a book he read in the early '90s while backpacking across Europe, Stephen Batchelor's, Alone with Others, an existential approach to Buddhism. After thirty-plus years, MG challenges that statement by adding a twist. While we are born alone, it is with and in spirit.   When we die, it is the spirit that leaves our bodies. Thus, we are not entirely born alone, nor do we die entirely alone. Arguably it is our spirit that is either with us...

"Energy flows where attention goes." This week we revisit a goal achievement first principle: EVERYTHING IS ENERGY. Suppose everything is energy (and it is). That means you are energy, and your goal will require energy. Interestingly, habits are the most efficient use of behavior energy and this is why The Habit Factor process of habit alignment is so effective. There are two key elements that impact one's behaviors the most over a long period of time; their environment and thinking, which is predominantly in the form of stories). To illustrate MG discusses the "3 Circles of Behavior...

"Notice all the B.S. stories you tell yourself about EVERYTHING. Then, run them through the H.E.R.O.'s checklist." Your internal monologue is very active! Sometimes it's helpful, and other times, not so much. This internal chatter provides stories about EVERYTHING, from your career to your potential. You even have stories about your spouse, friends, etc. You also have stories about your goals, the ones you choose to pursue or not. These stories establish boundaries. They setup walls that become impenetrable until you notice them first. The more aware you can become of your internal dialogue...

Goals are Not Optional! show art Goals are Not Optional!

Habits 2 Goals: The Habit Factor® Podcast with Martin Grunburg

"Goals are not optional!" Drifting – living an aimless life – might be fun for a week, a month, maybe even a year. However, drifting for too long is dangerous. Having a purpose – a big, vital goal – to pursue is essential to a fulfilling life. The fact is almost everyone already has goals. Unfortunately, as Tony Robbins likes to say, "they're mostly impotent." Weak goals like "make it to the end of the month" or, "get to happy hour after work" won't keep you inspired. It also helps to think of goals as "intelligence in action." We arrive at that definition by assessing the definition...

Habits 2 Goals: The Habit Factor® Podcast with Martin Grunburg

"You don't need to eat a piece of cake after you run 5 miles." Studies on habit development support the idea that self-efficacy – the ability to produce the desired result – is rewarding. By following P.A.R.R., (Plan, Act, Record & Reassess), The Habit Factor's method for habit development, users experience self-efficacy, often. Of course, the opposite is true. If a user does not follow through on their habit tracking plan they will be unhappy. Hence, the method encourages users start with low tracking parameters. By creating a habit plan, and then acting on that plan, you...

"Intentionality is your superpower, and the best news is, you're already great at using it!"

When was the last time you went shopping?

When was the last time you got a haircut?

When was the last time you ate some food?

That fact is, you're already an incredible, purposeful, deliberate, goal-driven machine. You use your intentionality every day, all day long.

Getting your hair cut wasn't an accident. You set up an appointment and then showed up. You didn't just arrive at a grocery store; you realized you needed food and made a plan to go shop.

You didn't accidentally start reading a book; you intended to read the book, so you picked it up.

Intentionality isn't just a superpower, though; it's your means to design the life you want, AND it's a demonstration of your intelligence in action!

Being intentional—being purposeful, being goal-driven—equates to intelligence in action.

Tony Robbins put it this way: "We all have goals; the problem is, most of us have really crappy goals, like, 'I just want to get through the day,' or, 'I just want to get through the month.'"

The truth is, goals are a must in life, and the bigger, more inspiring or even scarier the goal, the more inspiring your life is likely to become. That doesn't mean you have to begin with a huge, scary goal, but it does mean you must set goals.

"In life, goals are NOT optional."

By using your intention, being purposeful and deliberate with your life, you design your ideal future and begin to move toward it. This is the process to realize "success," and it's found in the daily effort to move toward your ideal future.

The method that takes you there is to follow P.A.R.R.—to intentionally create and align habits that support your goals. By Planning, Acting, Recording and Reassessing daily, you put your intentionality—your superpower—to work!
