“Isn’t all practice intentional?”
“EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY” a recent #1 Amazon Hot New Release.
EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY debuts as a “prequel” and completes a “trilogy” MG never knew existed. Martin began writing The Habit Factor® shortly before 2005; it was published in 2010. Then, in 2015, The Pressure Paradox™ was published.
EVERYTHING culminates nearly 20 years of deliberation, collaboration, and meditation, all in the pursuit of deconstructing human behavior for the purposes of goal attainment.
In this episode, MG shares a quick story from a recent consultancy project. Martin was hired to help create some scripts based upon The Habit Factor’s P.A.R.R. method for habit development and goal achievement. (Since there is an NDA that is all he can share about the project.)
A script involving the term “intentional practice,” was being reviewed and an associate asked, “Isn’t all practice intentional?”
It’s a great question and the answer is nuanced. In short, YES and NO.
There are degrees to practicing relative to its intentionality. The more specialized a practice becomes, the more intentional it becomes.
The real takeaway for the listener is this: “Intentional” and “deliberate” practice (as they are synonyms), can and should be used to cultivate both HABITS and SKILLS!
In fact, that is the premise of The Habit Factor’s P.A.R.R. methodology: One can intentionally practice positive habits in order to cultivate them and achieve their goals more quickly.
Enjoy the show!
