The first stage of the technique consists of identifying and writing down, whatever you believe is preventing you from being intellectually active during the day. One way to do it, is to ask yourself, if you are conforming to rules a little too much. Like for instance, when it’s break time, is all you want to do enjoy your 30 minute break, and nothing more? Or again, when it’s 8 pm in the evening; is all you think about going to bed (even though sometimes you spend some additional time watching TV)? Or are you simply, one of those who get tired very quickly? After you’ve finished answering all these questions, you will now start with the second stage of the technique, which consists of identifying all of the obstacles driving you away from…show more content…
Now stage number three; is where you create a path (draw it on a piece of paper) or if you prefer a sort of mind map. So, starting with the first heading on the left of your table (table.1) you will draw what you’ve listed as your main obstacles, by representing them as shapes (it can be triangles, cylinders whatever you choose) and each shape, should be labelled as Exhaustion, like on your table, followed by Not enough sleep, then laziness, Monotony and lastly poor diet. Do the same things with Time constraint and its subheadings (on table.1). On this mind map, you should be able to already illustrate the path you will follow to avoid these obstacles. The process when you avoid or jump over these obstacles is called “knocking off” obstacles, because they automatically disappear, and you move on to the next one. So arrows guiding you through that path should be represented too, with a “start” line at the beginning of path and a finish line by the end. Fig.A, below illustrate that stage very…show more content…
The arrows represent how you should proceed into avoiding each obstacle. This pattern should, in turn, be recorded in your mind, and replayed when intending to stimulate your mind, and knock out constraints The fourth stage after drawing your mind map, will be to start visualizing how each obstacle is arranged (like a path made up of obstacles), so that your brain can register them; then guide yourself mentally through that imaginary path, as if you were physically blindfolded and that the only thing guiding you was a familiar voice, helping you avoid obstacles as much as
