MBL Minute: Standard Of Performance And Good And Bad Habits


Episode Notes


A Standard of Performance


The way you do anything is the way you do everything.  When you implement an effective standard of performance within an organization successful outcomes occur without having to focus on them (non-attachment to outcome).  The results take care of themselves when you focus on and master the process.  There needs to be an urgentness to adopt the new performance standard.  Hiring, firing, promotion and employment decisions need to reflect the stand of performance you have established.  An organization’s performance standard defines and determines how the culture and behavior will evolve.  Each company is designed for the results they are getting.


Good or Bad Habits


All habits are meant to be addictive so they can be easily repeated.  That is why we need to make sure the habits we are developing are good ones.  The first time you tasted food as a baby your brain instantly created a chemical reaction and you received a massive and unexpected award.  The reward was a dose of the neurotransmitter dopamine.  Your eyes went wide with surprise and amazement.  You began frantically moving your head and kicking with legs.  Your brain said “Wow, this is great, I want more.” now.
