About This Class

The topic of mental toughness has become hugely popular over last 3-5 years. This is partly dues to the books published by Angela Duckworth, who brought us ‘Grit’, and Carol Dweck, who published ‘The Growth Mindset’.

As a result of these books, we are now learning that mental toughness is a key factor in achieving results. I’d like to make a contribution to this important topic.

The problem is that human are comfort seeking organisms. We want things to be nice and easy. What’s more, we are all held back by negative self talk and our monkey brains which warn us about anything uncomfortable or difficult that is coming up. The problem is, if we give in to this voice of the monkey brain in our mind, then there is no progress. 

In this course I’d like to offer something called the GRIT framework. It is designed to give you some practical actions and achieve a focused mindset. The G.R.I.T. framework gets you through the negative self talk that threatens to sabotage results.

What is the G.R.I.T. framework? It is an original framework that is inspired to help you grow your capacity for mental fortitude.

G = Get on with it.

R= Reconcile the short term with the long term.

I = Interest in Detail.

T = Take responsibility for time.

As you can see, this framework is not just a review of the key points in those two famous books that I cited above It is a unique framework that allows you to get more control over your projects.

The assignment gives you a worksheet where you can clarify your strategies and thought processes so that you will be in a stronger position to focus on the work that is important to you. What’s more, it only takes a few minutes to complete!

I created this course so that you can set yourself up to focus your energy and time more easily on your projects. 

Get strategies that help you to turn down and even ignore the negative self talk of your monkey brain. Strengthen your mindset and become a person who gets things done.

I invite you to join this course and find out more!

Transcripts

1. GRIT Intro: 2017 seems to have been an important year for the topic of mental toughness. Angela Duckworth introduced the book great. And Carol Dweck published the growth mindset. As a result of these books, we're now learning that mental toughness is a key factor in achieving results. I'd like to make a contribution to this important topic. Let me explain. We all held back by our negative self-talk and our monkey brains. We want everything to be safe and comfortable. The problem is if we give into this constant desire to be safe and comfortable, then there is no progress. This course, I'd like to offer you something called the GRI framework. It is designed to give you some practical actions and achieve a focused mindset. The grit framework gets you through that negative self-talk that threatens to sabotage results. What is the GRI, framework you might ask? Is an original framework that is designed you too help develop your mental fortitude. G is about to get on with. It. Refers to relating the short term to the long-term. I is interest in detail. And t is about taking responsibility for time. As you can see, this course is not just a review of the two famous books that I mentioned earlier, is a unique framework that helps you get control over your projects. I created this course to help you set yourself up to focus your time and energy more easily on your projects. Get strategies that help you to turn down and even ignore the negative self-talk of your monkey prying, strengthen your mindsets and become a person who gets things done. I invite you to join the course and find out more. 2. GRIT Project: So the energy our IT where she is today you writing down your ideas and strategies. This will help you to achieve clarity on how you are going to make your projects IE6. There are five sections to the worksheet. The first section has some general strategy questions, and then the remaining four sections focus on areas that I have covered in this course. So there are some problems about g. Get on with it. Relate short-term to long-term problems to help you focus on details. And some problems on prioritizing and taking responsibility of your tie. By completing this worksheet, you will have created a collection of prompts and strategies that help you to stay on track and get things done for the project. How about posting a photo of yourself, Haldane, your completed great workshop. The photo, it doesn't have to show the actual contents of your worksheet because they might be personal and for your eyes only. Just post the photo for the thumb to show how you have completed. Finally, I've got just one more tick. It's often a good idea to pin up your worksheet on a notice board somewhere where you can see it every day. It will help you to remind yourself of the strategies you want to. All right, I look forward to seeing your photos. 3. G of GRIT Get On With What?: Hi everybody. This is the first section of the grid framework. And we're going to look at the g of grade. So g means get on with it. And this section is all about using your willpower. Now, I know there's a lot of information about willpower. And the general consensus among experts is that will power goes up and it goes down. It is not always something that you control. I'm not saying here that you can control your willpower 100%, but it is a vital ingredient in the grit framework. I'm going to suggest a number of mindsets that will help you too, get the most out of your willpower results. Before I go on to talking about these mindsets, it is important first to understand and be clear about what you are actually going to get on with. So the question is, get on with what? And I'd like to suggest a three-step habit that will just help you to get clear on the things you need to get on with. The first step then is to clarify your massive and your major projects. By massive projects, I'm talking about the real big coals that you want to achieve. These are the big, dreamlike goals that would make a massive change in your life. They are the kind of thing that might take years to actually achieve. Because these represent massive projects. They can be broken down into other major projects. As an example, let's say your massive project is to double your income. Now to do that, you might think of three or four different projects that are going to bring in extra income for you. Therefore, those extra income generated projects, they will be the ones that you call your major projects. Once you have clarified to your projects, then you have to clarify the habits and goals that you need to apply in order to actually make those projects a reality. Notice that in this step, we're still only really in the planning stage. And you're talking just about the individual outcomes that you want to see. And just the planning some of the actions that you're going to take. And then step number 3, of course, is actually taking action and writing out and doing the daily tasks that take you small steps towards achieving the outcomes of your massive and major projects. Once you have a clear idea of what you're going to get on with, then we can talk about the mindsets. 4. G of GRIT Mindsets: Here are a few mindsets that will be useful for you. The first one then is to understand the difference between professionals and amateurs. I think that basically, if we are going to achieve our objectives, then we need to take a professional mindset about things. And the basic difference which you might have heard is that the professionals do things even when they don't feel like it. If you can adopt that attitude of I am a professional, then you're going to be more likely to do the tasks when you need to. And let's face it, the problem with achieving things is actually, a lot of the work is not stuff that we feel like doing. We'd probably much rather get on the internet, browse, social media, watch YouTube, watch Netflix or something like that. I'll talk about the problems of Internet distraction. But this is one of the main resistances that we need to get through or get over. Another useful mindset is that of vision and visualization. This sounds fancy and a bit woo-woo, but you don't have to go crazy on it. But having a clear picture of what you want to achieve and what things will be like upon achieving it is going to help you. The principle here is based on the idea that internal change comes before external change. If you want to achieve anything, then you have to get your mindset right and a visualization of what you need to achieve and how it's going to be, can be really useful. To explain this. I've got a quotation from an SX SIS guy called Ali soliton. He is famous in the UK. Not just as one of these SIS, Celebrity guys. He's written a few books. And of course we can learn from his comments and experience of working in these elite environment. Here's what he says. I fully believe that our lives are a product of what goes on in our heads. If your life is a mess, It's because you accept those thoughts in your head, you, and only you can change the color of those thoughts. He also goes on to talk about how useful it is to eliminate negative ideas and fill your mind with a positive visualizations. So he says, as best I could, I removed every possible source of influence that might dampen my equilibrium and drive. That's the mindset of visualization. May be you can go on the internet, download some photographs, or write a description of the outcome that you want to achieve and how it would fail, what it will look like. The next mindset, I'd like to suggest that of adopting a warrior persona. Because we're talking about willpower. Using your willpower to get things done requires some kind of effort and energy. And just taking the mindset of being a warrior can give you the strength and determination to go through with all of the actions that you need to take. So to help us understand this, let's get a quote from the world famous Mr. David Goggins, who is probably one of the world's number one warriors that we know about. Here is what he says. From the time you take your first breath, you become eligible to die. You also become eligible to find your greatness and become the one warrior. But it is up to you to equip yourself for the battle ahead. Only you can master your mind, which is what it takes to live a bold life filled with accomplishments most people consider beyond their capability. And connected with David Goggins. The David Goggins book also led me to this quotation from the ancient philosopher called Heraclitus. And Heraclitus is attributed to having said this out of every 100 men on the battlefield. That is my addition there to give you context, 10 shouldn't be there IT, or just targets. Nine are the real fighters. And we are lucky to have them For they make the battle. But 11 is a warrior and he will bring the others back. So that is three mindsets. So far. Professionalism, visualization and adopting a warrior persona. 5. G of GRIT mindests 2: The next mindset is to see things as temporary. This is a short and simple point, but it is very useful. And the point is that if you see things as temporary, then you are much more likely to appreciate the, your ability and capacity to do something. The famous saying Is this too will pass. It's a philosophy that helps you to get through the tasks and jobs that maybe you don't want to do, or maybe they are difficult or perhaps overwhelming. All you need to remember is that it is temporary and you will get through this later on. I've got more to say about this. In the T section of our grid framework. We have two more mindsets that I'd like to suggest in terms of helping you to have the power to get on with it and using your willpower in an effective way. The next one then is to take the emotion out of things. Usually, we have what you might call the monkey brain, which is the part of our mind that tells us how uncomfortable and unenjoyable some tasks might be. And the point is that we can learn to take the emotion out of that task. You might need to have a conversation with yourself to calm down the emotional chatter of your monkey brain. Here is a quotation from Ali, Ali button again, and he talks quite a lot about taking the emotion out of tasks. Many of us fail at the point of success. It's the moment when you feel yourself veering towards the negative, when you self-sabotage and allow the voice of self-doubt to start talking you out of it. Instead of encouraging you to dig deeper, your mind is telling you to take the shortcut and end the stress. All right, Then the last mindset I have got completely from Mel Robbins. And maybe you know about Mel Robbins. She is another one of these speakers that in the personal development field. And she has had a book out for a number of years called The Five Second Rule. And it's just a little rule that will snap you into action. All you have to do is count down from 554321 and then stand up and just do it. The classic example here is getting out of bed when the alarm rings and you're lying there feeling that you don't want to move. You count down 54321 and just snap out of bed and get yourself moving. And it is like a quick, fast trigger that you can use just to get yourself started. So very simply, use the 5 second rule by saying, okay, on after the account, I will get started on my next task, 54321, go. 6. G of GRIT Summary: There we have it. Then they are a few mindsets that hopefully will improve your ability to get on with it. Let me just summarize what the points are in this GI section. First, clarify your projects and tasks, visualize your outcome. Adopt the warrior persona. Remember that this too shall pass. Take the emotion out. And lastly, use Mel Robbins Five Second Rule to snap yourself interaction. That is the GI section of your grit framework. In the next section, we'll look at the parts of the framework. I'll see you then. Thank you. 7. R of GRIT Intro: Hi everybody. Welcome back. Thank you so much for watching this course. I really hope that it has given you some ideas and inspiration about how you can achieve the results you need through this grid framework. I've already covered the g of the great framework. Get on with it. Now, in this next section, I'm going to talk about the law. And of course, our mains relate short term to long term. This is something that I call the dual time frame mindset. I think it's important to alternate between having a long-term perspective and also having a short term perspective and kind of alternating between those two different types of perspectives. I want to talk about the long term first. For a long-term perspective. Then without getting too cliched, we do need to remember that life is a journey. And along that journey, we can experience milestones. The milestones either going to be good things or bad things. It's worth considering those milestones. If they are good, then you can celebrate them. If I are bad, then consider it a learning experience and find out what you can learn from from that particular file. Yeah. 8. R of GRIT short term vs long term: Alright, I've talked about taking the long term perspective. Now let's look at the short term perspective. And this is where we have the concept of immediate discomfort, which leads to long-term benefits. I would suggest that a lot of goal achievement involves a media discomfort. The short-term realities of trying to achieve goals. It can seem too difficult. How on earth can I double my income? Or it can seem confusing as well. When you have your massive project and you're really not sure if any of your ideas will work and is it worth spending the time and energy on them? There are distractions and Internet distractions are the number one thing. Of course, at any time, at any dye, we can just stop doing this kind of stuff. Relax, watch some YouTube, maybe watch Netflix or as another streaming channel, something like that, and do something that is much more fun and easy. This is why achieving goals is always going to involve some kind of immediate discomfort. However, if we do it, then we can see that there are long-term benefits to experience. We will get more of a purpose in our life. We will understand why we are doing things and generally have a more pleasant lifestyle. I'd just like to reinforce this with Jim Rhone. Quotation. Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced every day. I've put a few examples of success that resulted through discipline. You can imagine a happy marriage is the result of daily attention to your partner, showing caring, respect, and understanding on a regular basis, even when you feel annoyed with them. Or a successful business. This comes from the small actions of taking care of customers, dealing with your angry customers. Studying business practice, listening to customers and their needs so that you can innovate your product and service to adapt and satisfy the market. Or the last example is simply a guy who has paid his house mortgage off, which involved obviously monthly budgeting, not spending money on things, and having the discipline to pay more than the regular payments every month. 9. R of GRIT motivation comes through action: Light talked about action and belief, and I think this is an important point for having a good long-term perspective in that your confidence and enthusiasm develops over time as you work on projects. This idea comes from Cal Newport, and these are some quotations from his book about being the best that you can be. The first quotation then represents the idea that we grow into our projects. We can't necessarily expect to have a real positive, enthusiastic attitude at all times. Here's what he says. Is this who I really am? Do I love this? Rarely reduced to clear yes or no answers. And then he talks about this issue of passion. I am suggesting that you put aside the question of whether your job is your true passion, and instead, turn your focus toward becoming so good, they can't ignore you. 10. R of GRIT tiny habits: If we talk about these simple disciplines, then the idea of tiny habits can be very useful. Haha, this is a diagram that I have adapted from the book called Tiny Habits, which was written by BJ hug. And he talks about just starting off Tiny Habits that will get you into the routine of taking those simple actions which will compound and build up into significant results. According to this author, if you look at your habit, you can consider two factors. That is, the motivation you have to do the habit. And of course, you've got, you might have a high motivation to do it or a low motivation to do it. And then the other factor is, is this habit easy or difficult to do? With these two scales of motivation and ability, we can talk about four different types of habits in terms of our attitudes. We can see that there are habits that are hard to do and the motivation level is high. There are also habits or tasks that are easy to do and the motivation level is high. Another one which is probably the most difficult, is one where you have low motivation to do it and it is difficult to do. And lastly, we have things that are easy to do, but you have low motivation. Now, the idea is to manipulate your tasks so that you have, you have them in the easy to do and high motivation section. Let's take the example of exercising. If your goal is to run ten kilometers, and let's just assume that you are not yet a fit person. So this is something that's going to be hard to do. Ten kilometers is quite a long way. And the thought of running ten kilometers is probably something that makes you tired, just thinking about it. So you kind of feel a bit lazy. And once again, maybe the fixed mindset talk in your mind tells you, why are you saying run ten kilometers, you'll never be able to do that. So negative self-talk brings your emotion down to a low level. So we're in this kind of hard to do low motivation section. If we're in this sector, it's highly unlikely that we're going to achieve the goal. So what you need to do is manipulate it so that you change the task and put it in sum, in the sector that is easy to do and with high motivation, usually the way to do this is by breaking it down into a tiny habit. So instead of running ten kilometers, you can just break it down to running 50 meters and just spending a few minutes on it every day. Once your mind knows that you're only going to spend a few minutes and running, then it becomes a lot easier to do. The idea then is to convert this short-term perspective of immediate discomfort into tiny habits that make your work a lot easier to handle. 11. R of GRIT Closing: Okay, that is the section relate long-term and short-term perspectives. Take a dual timeframe mindset. Let me just review the points that I've covered. We have the marathon view with positive and negative milestones. Adopt a growth mindset. Know that immediate discomfort results in long-term gain and your enthusiasm and accumulate actions through tiny habits. That is the end of the R section. I really hope that you'll continue to join me into the next section, which of course is the I in the framework. And that is all about interest in detail. I'll see you there. 12. I of GRIT Intro: Hi everybody. Welcome to this section. We've already done TJ. Get on with it. We've looked at our relates the short term to the long term. And I, in this great framework is about interest in detail. I've got a couple of examples that I want to tell you about that will illustrate this. 13. I of GRIT Van Halen Example: The first example is a story from Van Halen. I'm guessing a lot of you will know about the famous rock band Van highland and the virtuoso guitarist Eddie Van Halen, who died last year, rest in peace. As you can guess, I'm probably a bit of a rock fan. If you are younger and you are interested, get on YouTube and have a look at some of the Van Halen songs. They were one of the biggest rock bands back in the early and mid eighties. There's a famous story about M and M's. And the story goes that in the backstage catering, the rider that Van Halen asked for, they wanted M and M's, but they wanted to all of the brown M and M's taken out at the time this story was put in the media as a kind of, oh my God, van highland are so crazy. Water punch of fevers. You think they're amazing rock stars. And they want someone to go through all the effort of taking out the brown M&M's from the packets. How stupid combat pay? That was the general narrative. However, the main singer, David Lee Roth, revealed another motive in this decision. He said that when the band, third thing carried lots of equipment and the equipment was quite heavy, there was no guarantee that the bands stage gear would all fit into every particular venue that they played at. Some venues were okay. Some venues were not. Now, you can imagine the disaster that would happen if Van Halen loaded all of their gear and the stage, the venue was not enough to hold that gear. Things could come crashing down. So what they did was they put this close in the writer about Brown M and M's. And the idea was that if the promoters read the instructions carefully and took out the brown M and M's. Then oh, the band had to do was to look backstage at the M and M's provided and see if the promoters had that attention to detail. If I had taken the brown M&M out, then they knew that the promoters would have paid attention to the other more important areas of the shuttle. Whereas if there were still brown M&M's in there, then they got the idea that the promoter had less attention to detail. Therefore, pipettor double, double-check their stage set up to make sure that everything was safe. Now, that's the story from David Lee Roth, who knows which one is true. But I think it does illustrate an important point. I hope it's true. 14. I of GRIT Singapore Example: And the next example is Singapore. I'm sure a number of you have been to Singapore. And even if you have never had the pleasure of going to Singapore, it's recognized as a modern city, famous for its cleanliness and amazing customer service. Most people who take a visit to Singapore very impressed by the all-round experience that they have there. And the reason for this is simply attention to detail. In Singapore, They pay attention to the details of things like the rubbish and keeping everywhere clean. On public transport, everything is clean and runs efficiently. All of this is about paying attention to the small things that improves the customer service and the experience. I'd like to suggest then that interest in detail is a key factor that will help you to improve and deliver on your goals. 15. I of GRIT tips: The last point in this section is a few ideas that I have that will help you to find the detail in your activities. The first thing I would suggest is to learn from others. Let's say you are fortunate to have the experience of flying first-class or business class on a trip. As you have this experience, observe how the flight attendants complete their jobs, how they provide customer service. Look at the points of detail that they apply. Or maybe you stay at an expensive hotel, just observe the check-in process. Observe the items in the room and how the room is presented to the guest. Observe how the menus are designed and all those kind of things. If you experience and excellent high-quality service or product, then observing what they do to maintain that high quality reputation will give you some ideas for your own projects. The next thing is to turn to your projects and ask yourself, what are the points of detail. As an example, when I do these online courses, I will look at my notes, my scripts, and I will look at points of detail that I need to bring in and consider. Another point is to add two. Good enough. Now, nothing is going to be perfect. When you make a video or produce a piece of artwork, I'm sure that you will look at it and you will probably see some weaknesses, some things you want to improve or things you might change. But you will get to a point where you say to yourself, Okay, this is good enough, Let's put it out and that's fine. What I suggest to you is to just take a pause and think, well, is there just a few little points of detail that I can add to it? It's good enough now, I can send it out to my audience. However, can I just change two or three points of detail and just make it that little bit better. Of course, doing this means that interest in detail is all about reviewing things. At the beginning, you probably won't really know what the points of detail are that you can use to improve the quality and increase value. It's only when your project is taking shape and you've got to that state of seeing that. Well, it's okay. It's it's nearly what I want to produce. That's when you start seeing the points of detail. So reviewing your projects before you ship them out to your audience is a really good way to bring those points out. 16. I of GRIT conclusion: Alright, that is the third section. Just a few points in the summary. Remember that it is the small things make a difference, as we saw in the examples of Singapore and Van highland and their M and M's. And it's important to review your project and find the points of detail in the project where you might have an opportunity to add value. That's i interest in detail. The next section is the fourth and final section of the grid framework. That is, take responsibility for time. I look forward to seeing you in that section. 17. T of GRIT Intro: Hi, Welcome back. I really hope that this great framework has been useful for you. We're now in the last section, the tea pot and T means take responsibility for time. Here, we're going to focus exclusively on time itself. I'd like to just remind ourselves of some key facts about time. You've probably heard these facts before, but they are worth remembering. Firstly, of course we all have exactly the same amount of time available. You cannot increase this resource, you cannot grow it. It's 24 hours, seven days a week. And of course, the big difference is how we use our time. It's really the difference between toughness and weakness, success and failure. How we decide to use those minutes in our day. 18. T of GRIT opportunity cost: I think the first thing to look at to get our head around how we use time is to consider the opportunity cost of time. And if you're an economist, you understand well, opportunity cost. If we're doing something, then we cannot do another thing. And that is the cost of taking any action. It is that we cannot take other actions. In modern times, we have this concept of FOMO, fear of missing out. This FOMO point goes back to the idea of immediate discomfort. And that feeling of FOMO makes the immediate discomfort even stronger. So for example, let's say you're trying to write a script for a video. And it's hard. You're writing the script and your kinda thinking about what I want to say, what information do I need? It's a little bit like writing an essay or something. Over time you're doing this. Your monkey mind is saying, why are you, why are you going through this exercise of trying to write a difficult script? You could just stop and watch some YouTube instead. I think understanding this FOMO principle helps you to overcome it. 19. T of GRIT priorities: Okay, the next thing is to practice time awareness. And this idea basically comes from the concept of mindfulness. And you might know that mindfulness is all about being in the present moment and focusing your mind and senses on what you are experiencing now, this very second, with time awareness, you do this, but you just focus on the, your choice of actions at this time. There are two questions you can ask yourself. What am I doing now? And is this the right thing for me to be doing? Now? If your answer is no to that second question, then you can stop and move on to an activity that is going to be more beneficial for you. Another key factor for time awareness is to prioritize, have a sense of priority for your tasks and projects. If you don't have any sense of priority, then it's really difficult to make a choice about how you should be using your time because you don't know what your time should be used for. And the big danger with having no priorities is that you will drop into default, which is going to the Internet for entertainment. When you're assessing priority, you can do this in a number of ways. Of course, there is the very famous way of determining priority through importance and urgency, and ranking your projects and tasks in terms of high or low in potency and high or low urgency. I would also add the Tiny Habits aspect to this because there's kind of a psychological element of whether we feel like doing the task or not. And even if it is a high priority, if we do not have the best of attitudes about it, we are perhaps less likely to do it. Something that is important and urgent might still not get done if we haven't attained the right mindset. So in terms of measuring your attitude, consider your ability and motivation to complete a task. And once again, going back to Tiny Habits, if you feel that you have low ability, low motivation, you need to break that task down into something that is smaller and easier to achieve. 20. T of GRIT break it down: All right. I talked about breaking it down and there's just one more point to make here. It can be really useful just to identify deadlines for your tasks in terms of 15 to 20 minutes sections. This is because we can do something for 15 or 20 minutes. It's kind of doable knowing that there is an end to it in a short time and we can take a break. Short time blocks are easy to do. So breaking your priorities down into those 20 minute tasks can be helpful. And you can just set up a kind of rule. You might say to yourself, I will work on this paper until 730 and then stop. I will keep going for another 10 minutes. I will stop, but I will stop ten minutes later. Not just now. And saying those things can push you through to avoid the opportunity costs of time that I talked about before. 21. T of GRIT Conclusion: There we have it. That is the T section of the grit framework. I talked about the key facts of time. Understand the opportunity cost of time, prioritize, practice time awareness, and break it down in terms of time limits. There you have it. That is the whole grit framework. I'll just round everything up in the conclusion lesson. Thank you very much and I'll see you there. 22. Conclusion: Thank you so much for completing this holes. We have covered a whole range of strategies and mindsets related to the GRI, framework. We've looked at how to use your willpower, the importance of short-term discomfort to achieve long-term comfort. The importance of having a detailed perspective, and how to prioritize and take responsibility for our time. The most important thing to remember is that we keep on doing what we need to do every day. Whatever happens, and however small our actions may seem at the time, we just need to keep on walking the power off. Please let me know if you have any comments or questions and put them in the student's comments area, I'd be really happy to hear from you. And lastly, of course, I look forward to seeing the photos that you post. Have a great day now. Thank you, and I'll see you on the next coals.
