How will I know that I am off in the right direction? What would it feel like? What will I be able to do?
Breakthrough 1: trading
See Why I trade for more details on why trading is part of this project.
- I follow Mark Austin’s trades exactly. No doubts, no early closing, no ‘little punts’ just his trades and to the letter.
- This is not a financial objective, it is a behavioural.
Why is this Breakthrough 1?
Being able to do this means that:
- My prefrontal cortex rather than my amygdala is in charge when I am trading.
- I trust someone who more skilled than I am in this field and have let go of wanting to be better and cleverer and having to right.
- I have freed up the energy that was tied up in my doubts, mistrust and competitiveness so that I can do the creative work that I actually want to do.
On 27 Dec 2016, I do not know what the other breakthroughs could be, but some ideas are:
- Able to speak German without having ‘I bet they think I’m f***ing idiot’ running the show.
- Able to give a Thai Yoga Massage without ego of having to be good and accepting both my knowledge and limitations.
- Finishing my work and showing it to people.
- Making contact with people one of my top priories.
- Moderate/non existent drinking.
- Making my work again (this is the big one).
NICE ideas but…
