In the last many emails, (begin review with email 57)
we have continued to look at decisions and actions. I have suggested
that our ways of being are backed by beliefs. I do hope that you have
taken the time to become more aware of the automatic daily activities
you engage in.
Closing the GAP requires becoming more deliberate and conscious. In this
email, I will offer further ideas for your consideration:
Repetitive daily activities that serve your goals:
- may be strongly positively associated with a successful self-image
- likely have become learned, habituated and relatively easy to complete
- serve as stepping stones for other well chosen behavioral efforts
Repetitive daily activities that do not serve your goals:
- may be strongly negatively associated with the self-image of one who feels incapable of influencing the self or externals
- likely have become learned, habituated and although they may cause pain, the execution of the activity is familiar and easy
- serve as stepping stones for other poorly chosen behavioral efforts.
