On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright dives deep into how you can measure your progress when it comes to the 8 Steps and your goals.

Why measuring progress toward doing the 8 Steps is tricky:

The 8 Steps need to align with your inner needs and motives. If we don’t set goals to achieve these steps which are autonomous – that is, they come from our own motivations rather than being set for us by someone else – than we’re less likely to stick with said goals.

The steps need to be viewed as Growth goals vs. Maintenance goals. Growth goals are those that we look forward to achieving. Maintenance goals are those that we must do to maintain the current state in order to avoid negative consequences. Wanting to change (seeing the positive impact in said change) has a more lasting effect on sustaining the 8 Steps vs. Dreading to Change (seeing the negative inconvenience of said change) which contributes to the procrastination of the 8 Steps.

Akrasia is the state of acting against your better judgment. It is when you do one thing even though you know you should do something else. Loosely translated, you could say that akrasia is a lack of self-control. It is what prevents you from following through on what you set out to do. The reason for akrasia has to do with a behavioral economics term called: Time Inconsistency. This refers to the tendency of the human brain to value immediate rewards more highly thank future rewards. This is one reason why the ability to delay gratification is such a great predictor of success in life. Understanding the pull of instant gratification and being able to resist it helps you bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

Introduction of commitment devices can help lock you in future 8 Steps behaviors. It is a choice you make in the present that controls your actions in the future. For example: you can reduce overeating by purchasing food in small, individual packages rather than in bulk size. In other words, find ways to automate your behavior beforehand rather than relying on willpower in the moment. Be the architect of your future actions, not the victim of them.

Reduce the friction of starting with the 8 Steps by building habits of reacting to process praise which is related to the method taken and not “person praise” which is related to the individual. Getting started and staying started are directly correlated to receiving praise related to HOW progress is being achieved (strategy driven). Getting started and staying started are not correlated to the praise received of WHY progress is being achieved (purpose driven).

Person example: Excellent! You must have a natural talent!

Process example: Excellent! You must be using some really effective methods!

Moral: While it is natural for the people you love and respect to praise you after you announce an intention to accomplish, studies suggest that when someone praises you for an inherent trait such as initiative or ambition, it isn’t very helpful to finishing the task of kicking the can down the road. Further, in some cases, it may be less motivating than receiving no praise at all, particularly after you experience failure. This setback guilt could negatively affect your motivation to start another step or achieve another goal. Focus on the process by saying: that’s awesome! Practice that step daily and report back your progress weekly.
