Stick It Planning

Sit Ubo, Sit. Good Dog.

Teaching yourself a new trick and moving through the fear you’re going to encounter learning that new trick is not easy. Rewarding yourself and taking some other strategies into account can help you move through it.

We respond really well to rewards. We like being liked for example on Facebook posts. This keep us going because of that great little chemical dopamine that hits our brains each time we get some kudos.

Let’s keep in scope though that the best counter to fear is positive reinforcement. Fear can be a motivator, however, it can back fire too. A fear campaign can cause us to panic and in many cases make us ignore the affects it can have us long term. Putting us on a path to destruction, rather motivation to plow through it.

Positive results can become more consistent when we find ways to use rewards to encourage great behavior. Good behavior type incentives for challenging work will create some longer lasting cognitive ways of problem solving to the win.

That said, it’s important not to rely solely on this reward type of system either. Or, doing it just because we get the reward. We’re just Pavlov’s Dog if we play this way.

The glory and learning or up-skilling should be our motivation or target, not just the reward. Stay away from fear and the fleeting pleasures of rewards as a way to stick the plan. Find balance!
