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 been using Alan's Coaching Services for over a year now and the changes he has helped me make in my life have been nothing short of extraordinary. Everything from my personal to business life have improved. I am taking more time off while still increasing my profits by over 30% in a supposed recession. I have coached with several others in the past who have been good, but Alan has helped me take my life to a whole new level. I would personally recommend him to anyone who is looking to live a well-balanced, successful life."
