New Research on How to Overcome Setbacks

After a failure, a focus on external causes may protect self-efficacy.

“Despite our best attempts to prevent self-regulation failure and stay motivated and focused (e.g., through goal setting or progress monitoring), setbacks can still occur.

While it is healthy and adaptive to take responsibility for a failure and aim to improve performance, blaming oneself—especially internal causes beyond one’s control (e.g., thinking that “I’m weak” or “I have no willpower”)—is dysfunctional and has a negative effect on motivation and self-confidence.

Blaming oneself is also often inaccurate because, in many situations, we underestimate—or are not even aware of—external factors that contributed to the failure. For example, you may not be aware of the effects of a medication, TV commercials, or friends’ eating behavior on your experience of hunger and ability to stick to a diet.”

My thoughts on @davidamerlands ‘Intentional’

Intentional: How To Live, Love, Work and Play Meaningfully by David Amerland
David Amerland has always been an influential thinker for me — for example, his book on SEO was my college degree in that space! Intentional belongs on my top shelf along with 7 Habits, Getting Things Done, Fierce Conversations, and Radical Candor. If you like this kind of thinking, you will love this book: “Life is complex. We are complicated. There will be times when this value statement will be reversed. What will never change however is the sense of satisfaction that comes from being the sole architect of how you choose to live.” Amerland, David. Intentional (p. 38). David Amerland. Kindle Edition.

Those friends thou hast

“Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel; But do not dull thy palm with entertainment of each new-hatch’d, unfledg’d comrade.”

You define your goals via @davidamerland

You define your goals. They don’t define you. But the goals you set always define who you will become. This is true whether you succeed in them or not, reach them or not.
