The Technique of 10

The Technique of 10

Is there anything that you’d like to change about your life? Of course there is. None of us are perfect. Now…how long have you wanted to change it? Six months? A year? Five years? Don’t beat yourself up too much. Many people express interest in self-improvement, but very few of us actually do anything about it. Without external reinforcement from a life coach or mentor, we can easily lose focus and get distracted or discouraged.

If you’re looking for something to help you get started, try a simple technique called The Technique of 10. Here’s how it works:

  • Buy a small spiral notebook.
  • On the first page, list 10 aspects of your life that you want to improve. For example…
  1. Sleep
  2. Exercise
  3. Nutrition
  4. Attitude
  5. Lifelong Learning
  6. Practice Leadership
  7. Home Life
  8. Interpersonal Relations
  9. Stress
  10. Mastering a New Technique

Note the mix of personal and professional, broad and specific (#10).

  • Every day, use the notebook to score… on a 0–10 basis… how you did in each of your 10 target areas.
  • At least once a week, check your progress and commit to doing better where needed.
  • Modify the list periodically, removing areas where you’ve reached your goals and adding new ones.

The Technique of 10 can be a great jumpstart to making the life changes you’ve been wanting to make for years.
