I just call it RBIm.
One ask, so what is it that I would want to learn?
Now this opens up a can of worms.
That’s to generic.
So let specify it a bit.
I want to learn to juggle, or to make a great food for dinner or such.
What’s the result of making it that way then?
Most would now picture a perfect outcome.
That’s another can of worms.
Perfect wont be there as first your likely to fail due to you cant do it yet.
Make dinner means your doing the same food for a few weeks to improve the recipe, the ingredients until it taste the way you want it to. Knowing that ahead of time isn’t the same as actually doing it and you will fail before your able to do it.
Most however get stuck on the fail part and give up thinking but what about my perfect outcome?
That’s a memory.
Your brain cant do memories that way as its not connected in reference to contextual experience. yes it’s a “thing of sorts”.
That’s why for example Robert Dilts need to come and see me and talk about this stuff he does so he can update his encyclopedia of NLP. I digress tho.
Once you have an idea of the result you want, then its all about connecting that created memory to reality in experience. One measure this by making the behavior to count for what’s going on.
Most believe they need more information, books, tapes, videos, workshops and whatever else. What you need is more failures.
That has feedback built in within that.
First dinner taste funny, or is to loose to shady and texture isn’t right so next you locate why that is, adjust and do another dinner with the adjustment until the texture is right.
But that isn’t so advanced?
No, it isn’t.
People don’t notice they progress what they measure is what they believe is suppose to happen vs what actually does happen.
Now that’s another can of worms right there.
If your not tracking what happens vs what you believe is happening then how can you even think it will work ever?
While I am all for hope, faith and whatever else it wont be useful to do it those ways as your doing things (Practice) and ignoring the obvious (you can do it already) and then fail to note you already mastered the skill and achieved the result.
So the golfer that now can do something he didn’t believe he could in 2 minutes (50 yard increase driver) then reacted by saying that’s impossible even when he was the one doing the impossible.
15 minute range session the amateur golfer are making perfect swings each time with fabulous contact and becomes so high he can hardly walk. To then stay with the new was a challenge but his handicap went down during summer.
When you have a dyslexic and then in 2 minutes they aint dyslexics anymore they don’t understand what the issue is but their parents, teachers and professors cant believe it did happen as you know dyslexia is for life without solution.
They didn’t notice the feedback that was there, they didn’t measure the progress that was actually happen right in front of their eyes even though I had parents that cried of relief due to their child now wasn’t dyslexic anymore. They didn’t care what I did as it, worked.
So learning is more about how you measure or not the progress happening vs what you believe should happen or whatever you assume happens.
When I do a class and people say ok that was easy what’s next, it means they learned to do a highly complex skill without understanding how they did learn it, they still don’t understand what they have got as value and why I have to spend 2 days doing feedback due to them wont understand that they already can do something they couldn’t, five minutes ago.
For them they believe they always could do it when in fact they could not.
Not understanding that will collide with the cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias people have about learning which obviously gets in the way unless taken care off.
