Learning About Habits

As a former college coach my teams and players got better when they mastered the fundamentals. Complete mastery occurs when it becomes both unconscious and competent.

Noel Burch came up with a learning model in the 1970’s on how we learn new skills. The model had four stages.

  1. Unconsciously unskilled – we don’t know that we don’t have this skill, or that we need to learn it.
  2. Consciously unskilled – we know that we don’t have this skill.
  3. Consciously skilled– we know that we have this skill.
  4. Unconsciously skilled – we don’t know that we have this skill (it just seems easy).

As you build experience and expertise, you reach the stage of unconscious competence – wherein you do not have to think about the activity you are very good in. To accomplish this you need habits.

Habits

The challenge for many of us is once we start to practice a new habit how do we stay with it especially in the beginning when you may not see tangible results.

Scott H Young has a great website and on it he posted a great blog post about habits. The blog was called 18 Tricks to Make New Habits Stick

I particularly liked his suggestion to find role models that mirror the habit you are trying to become Unconsciously Skilled in. If you are THINKING about starting a new habit get STARTED.
