Selby Evans is Thinkerer Melville in Second Life
Clipits are crib sheets for thinkering. They summarize key information. You may need to read the related pages to understand everything in the summary, But you don't have to understand everything on the Clipit to start using it. All you have to understand is what you are going to use.
You can use a Clipit as a cue:
With your money.
On you mirror.
On the dashboard of your car.
On the TV remote.
On your refrigerator door.
On your calendar.
On your desk lamp.
In papers you are working on.
On your computer.
If you want this plan to work, pick one Clipit and use it for at least a week.
If you don't think the plan worked, ask yourself why.
If you feel inclined to use several Clipits at the same time, don't bother. Just conclude in advance that it won't work. Skip the Clipit trick until you are ready to focus on one thing at a time.
Goal: Look at the goal, not the problem.
Translate: Translate complaints into goals.
Who: The only who is you.
Start: You will start with your resources.
Hard: If it were easy, you would have already done it.
Time control Try this if you have time
|If you discover that you didn't really want to do what the Clipit called for, stop trying to do what you don't want to do. Go to the goals venue and figure out what you really want to do.||
If you expect your brain to help you, decide what you want it to do.
