Self-Improvement in Numbers

I am an expert in self-improvement.

Not a real self-improvement job, I just happen to be able to summarize all the other books in the self-help section of your local store.

It’s not something I’m proud of, but life is a rough road and we’re in a situation where we seem to be helpless so we’re willing to search under any rock to find an explanation.

Don’t get me wrong; I have certainly gotten better at motivating myself to do more productive and worthwhile activities.

Pop psychology, NLP, hypnosis, meditation, books on the other person

– I’ve tried them all and they all have their own stories of success.

However, I have noticed that there is a key to all self-improvement

that is not often overlooked-the importance of evaluating your progress!

Self-Improvement in Numbers

The only important thing about improving yourself,

keeping track of and documenting your progress and the lessons you’ve learned, is knowing how to measure change.

If you measure your success by the good or bad you feel about a situation,

you are deceiving yourself and your progress will not be slow.

In the realm of true improvement, there will be times when you will come to jump a lot but feel frustrated,

and other times when you will feel great but make no progress at all.

It’s important to follow your heart,

but more importantly, you need to rely on your mental abilities and critical thinking skills.

Emotions and emotions are an inevitable part of life (and sometimes must be taken)

but recognize them as they are often in the realm of self-improvement-mud.

-mind, cloud in your judgment.

Be an empiricist, and know that scientists are only knowledgeable from their point of view.

How will your progress be detected?

Yes, simply put, you assign several traits and skills that you would like to improve. But it becomes more difficult than that.

How do you think a bodybuilder knows he or she is getting better?

Does he judge his progress by his emotions when he wakes up in the morning?

Of course not.

Some days he wakes up and feels energized,

at other times he wakes up and feels sick,

but the bodybuilder knows he’s as good as he was that day at the gym

– no way another surefire way to measure its effectiveness.

She knows she is getting better because she can gain X more weight than she had in the previous month.

This example is very intuitive for most people,

but then people don’t follow how to apply the lesson to any kind of self-improvement,

or community, learning habits,

eating a healthy diet, learning guitar, how to play baseball or other skills.

Knowing this, you can’t just choose a type of measurement, you need to think about it beforehand!

It could be something simple like “how fast can I throw a baseball”

or it could be something more complex and multidimensional like “become a better pitcher”

(which includes some kind of “subskills”, not how fast you can atrophy).

If you find that you want to be better at one thing, quality,

you need a little creativity in creating the most effective way to define your measurements.

You may need to play around with your measurement equation before you can find anything that increases your output (if any).

For example, to become a better striker, there are a variety of things you might want to look at:

win/loss rate, average (ERA), innings, etc. These are statistics in the game, but there are also.

things you can do outside of the game: weekly practice hours. During practice,

you can cut your focus into specific traits: throw faster, throw more strikes (better to be honest), less hanging curveballs, fewer pitches.

First, pick the skill or behavior you want to improve, then break it down into the most basic parts.

Pay attention to all keywords that indicate the potential for measurement:

more / less, faster / slower (speed), heavier / lighter (mass), larger / smaller (size),

farther / closer ( distance), speed / later (time), etc.

Your choice of measurement is important:

make sure it is something close and relevant to your arrival at what you want in that move or that
