Making Life Easier, With NLP Chunking!

You know, in psychology there is a rule, especially within the NLP circles that I work in and the NLP literature that I read, it is quite a famous rule; 7 plus or minus 2 – this is the notion that the conscious mind can only keep track of between 5 and 9 discrete pieces of information at one time. Your unconscious can literally keep track of billions and billions of things at the same time aparently (clever thing that it is!), while your conscious mind is more one step at a time and it has a fairly narrow focus. Whatever the truth of this, it is a useful way to experience your own thinking.

Here are a couple of things Where Do I Find Weight Loss Resources that you can do to test the extent of your conscious mind: Without writing them down, blurt out now, straight away without thought;

- As many brands of cars as 2007 Equation Problem From Old Pc you can.

- As many film titles as you can.

- As many pop groups 90% Of My "Favorites" Have Vanished. They Were There Last Evening But They're Gone Now. I Use Them Frequently. as you can.

I often ask people these questions on our NLP trainings. Many people run out of steam when they get to ten, usuallly because of the 7+-2 rule. The bottom line is, when the conscious mind is presented with more than 9 pieces of information, it gets overloaded. So before you send me a very Can't Install Print Shop Deluxe 2.0 clever email telling me off for pointing out the limits of the conscious mind, would you like to know how you can use this to your advantage? Of course you would.

When you bear the gfkytsky 7+-2 rule in mind, you can start to organise things so that you work with your conscious mind, playing to its strengths. For instance, if you A Cabinet File Necessary For Installation Cannot Be Trusted. Please Verify The Cryptographic Services Are Enabled And The Cabinet File Certificate Is Valid.__Help!__ have a to-do list.

Many people that I have encountered have a daily to-do list Add Column A Cells Only If There Is No "Credit" In Column B Cells with 20 or more items on it. This is a recipe for total overwhelm (at which point they often resort to looking for the easiest or funnest thing on the list to do.) The following ideas can help you get a handle on your to-do list really fast, especially if that list has things that are important for your goals and achievements and sense of well-being.

Firstly, scan through the list, looking for items that can be grouped together into categories.

For example, here is a load of the stuff on my list for this week:

Write latest ezine 309 Error On Windows 8.1, Start Window And Apps Are Not Working article.

Bank cheques.

Finish writing chapter for new book

Prepare for client therapy sessions.

Finish project on public speaking.

Finish marketing material for new courses.

FInish listening to current educational Audio set.

Read through solicitors material regarding other business project.

Write up script for new audio title.

Send out follow-up letters for last weeks clients.

Do proposal for new book for Publishers.

Read e-book

New course blurb

Meet with prospective business artner for new project.

Clear inbox.

Have a life. Have fun......

The first thing on the list is ‘Write ezine’ – for me, my ezine "Adam Up" is one of A Program On Your Computer Has Corrupted Your Default Provider Setting For Internet Explorer my products, so I write ‘Product’ beside it. Next is ‘Bank Cheques’ – that’s part of our cashflow system, so I write ‘Systems’ beside it. Pretty soon, every item on my list is in a category:

Write Adam Up: Products

Bank cheques: Systems

Finish writing chapter for new book: Products

Finish project on public speaking: Personal

Finish marketing material for new courses: Training

This is better! I A Unique Experience With Aluminum Tubing have now gone from a list of 20 or so items (instant overwhelm) to a list Can't Find Torrent To Delete of 6 categories Can I Have IE8 Generally Look And Act Like IE7 which is well within even my 7+-2 limit.

- Products

- Systems

- Training

- Marketing

- People

- Personal

This is what we refer to as chunking in the NLP field, and is one of the most effective ways of dealing with any large or complex set of tasks (or set of anything else). You may say “Great, but I’ve got 200 things on my to-do list”. It doesn’t matter – the same principles apply. If you go through your to-do list or your goals lists; just get it whittled down from 200 items to 20 categories, that is better, it is getting it more manageable – go through the 20 categories and see where they group together. Group together goals for your own development; being a non-smoker, growing in confidence, creating wealth, reducing weight etc. Within NLP, the key is to have no more than 9 categories at each level – this way your conscious mind can Improve Page Rank Using SEO Services! keep track of it.

It is a simple thing that we do often anyway, NLP just heightened my awareness of it. I now do it in an NLP way.

Secondly, start to manage your to-do list by the high-level categories: You can use this in all sorts of areas to make things more manageable, for example:

- To-do lists.

- Goals you are working toward.

- The filing system on your computer.

- Your filing 2nd Drive Unformatted And Not Restored After Attempting Restore From A System Image cabinet.

- Any project you’re doing.

One of the things this allows you to do is notice very quickly if there’s a specific Business Cleaning Services: The Benefits of Hiring a Cleaning Company area where you have not been taking much action lately – very useful for helping focus on what needs attention.
