Make being silly & making mistakes part of our daily purposeful practice.

Show up daily.
Repeat specific, defined actions.
Be Playful & Imaginative.
Be a copycat — model world-class experts and steal ideas & behaviours and claim them as our own.
Be willing to be silly and
Play the fool.

Why? In doing this, we are ok with being with fear; we may even lose our fear. We aren’t afraid of making mistakes.

Feeling and being playful feels awesome. Feeling stupid doesn’t always. However, being willing to show up and be silly and risk the emotional pain of making mistakes is critical. Why? It bears repeating: reaching and failing are the way our brain forms new connections, and when it comes to developing our talents and skills through purposeful practice mistakes are not really mistakes, they are our guiding light.

More how-to execution guides and strategy on purposeful practice and behaviour design; these are my blog topic for tomorrow & this week — models, maxims & methods on purposeful practice applied IRL.
