Become More Efficient With Your Thoughts And Actions

"The ancient Japanese are of aikido teaches that the less resistance you create, the more efficient and effective your action."

- Dr. Jerry Lynch

How to become more efficient with your thoughts and actions:

i. Know where you want to go. To become more efficient at what you do, you need to set goals. Efficiency has to be inline with your goals, it is not a generalized concept, efficiency has focus.


ii. Consistency is key. Things don’t happen overnight, it takes time to build up to where you want to be.


iii. Make it fun . This includes having days off and times you can eat less nutritious food.


iv. Eliminating steps doesn’t make you more efficient. If you choose to skip steps, you will likely suffer the consequences later down the road, be it injury or a plateau in performance.


v. Take the right step the first time. It can be harder to break an old habit than it is to create a new one. Either way, commit to taking your time, working through the challenges and frustrations, and doing it right.


vi. Manage your time. Create a schedule by writing down all your appointments, commitments, and training goals. Writing things down makes it tangible because you can see it and dedicate your time and energy to it.


vii. Be proactive not reactive. Communication is key. It’s essential to communicate your commitments to others, especially when things on your schedule conflict. If you take the time to create a schedule, you can learn to plan ahead.


viii. Journal your progress. Charting your progress allows you to see how far you have come and how much closer you are to achieving your goal. When faced with setbacks and challenges, your journal is also your reminder that things will be ok.


ix. Know your why. There will be tough and challenging days that you have to endure and push through. If you have direction and a plan, you have your motivation and passion to press on.


x. It’s part of the ever changing process. There is no standard way of becoming more efficient at what you do. You are unique , so you need to adapt skills and techniques to fit you.
