How To Reduce Mental Friction

It is easy to blame people when they fail to perform. It is the go-to for many. However, as a leader you must consider your part of the equation. What have you done to minimize the mental friction in order for the team to understand and take action? How many mental calories do your people need to consume to behave in the manner you desire? In other words, how well do you simplify your vision or instruction to get what you need or want? This self-examination is powerful and can accelerate the results you desire. What if you are the problem because your mind's clear vision is challenging for others to see and make actionable? How can you, as the leader, eliminate or minimize external causes of mental friction? Let's take a look.

Behavior Chain
Need to Change? Discover the Behavior Chain

Why do you keep doing that? Do you have behavior patterns that you want to stop? If you are like most people, you struggle with behavior (or lack thereof) holding you back or limiting success in various life areas. You want to lose weight, but you cannot ignore the donuts at the office. You want to save money, but you cannot resist the sale at the electronics store. This type of cognitive dissonance is present in everyone. You are not alone, and you are not dysfunctional. You are human.
