Four Stages of Learning

There are four stages to learn just about anything. See how they apply in your life:

Phase 1 - Unconsciously incompetent...means, you don't know that you don't know, and you don't care. When you're two years old, you can't tie your shoe, you don't know you can't tie your shoe and you don't care.

Phase 2 - Consciously incompetent...means, now you know that you don't know, and you care! When you're four years old, you watch your friend tie his/her shoe, you realize you can't, and you want to!

Phase 3 - Consciously competent...means, you know...but it’s new or hard. When you're five years old, you practice making that loop to pull the other shoe lace through...that was tough! So you do it, but you struggle and think. Hmmm.

Phase 4 - Unconsciously competent - means, you do it so well, you don't even think about it. You now tie your shoes while drinking coffee, reading the paper and you don't even know how or when they were tied!

As we all learn and grow, making strides and learning is easier when the sun is shining, the kids and family are healthy, business is good, rewarding and's pretty good!

What happens and what do we learn when the detour sign hits our path? Sometimes all learning ceases, survival is the only focus and concern...

When growing a business, focusing on the above will move you faster toward your goals...find out what you want to can do it!
When growing you, the path isn't quite as straight.

Future Diary
In 1983, Mark Victor Hansen came to a Markson Management Services seminar and handed everyone a book with nothing in it. He called it Future Diary.

He then proceeded to tell us to write down everything we wanted as if it were already true...hence future diary.

I remember writing 5 things down that I really wanted, never thinking or believing that any of them would come true. All five did!

In Their Own Words ...

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Alan for more than 10 years. First as his coach, then as his colleague... all which developed into a dear friendship.

I count myself lucky to know and be connected with Alan. There are few people that can coach another coach! Alan is one crystal clear voice that I can truly hear, and integrate what he says. As a coach Alan asks powerful and revealing questions. There are no others like him!"
