Step 4: Select a new “hat” to wear.
When picking out this new hat, it is more important to consider the process of reaching your goal than the type of person you will be once you reach your goal. Give thought to the type of person who will be most successful with the process. As an example, if you have a goal to exercise more, you may come up with the idea to wear the hat of an athlete. However, take time to reflect on the processes followed by successful athletes. You may then decide you want to wear the hat of someone who can be consistent, someone who will come back and exercise the next day even if he missed the day before. If you have a goal to eat healthier, you may come up with the idea to wear the hat of a thin person. After reflecting on the processes followed by thinner people, you may want to wear the hat of a planner who writes a grocery list and shops in advance, so the refrigerator is well stocked with healthier “grab and go” foods.
When choosing which hat to wear, consider the process that’s needed to reach your goal. What type of individual do you need to become in order to handle this new process?
