Chapter 4: The man who didn’t look right
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” - Carl Jung
We are not aware of most of our habits. They simply happen automatically. When the cue occurs, we go through the whole habit without noticing any part of it.
You can increase your awareness and find out about your habits by using the Habit Scoreboard method (described below).
When we do things automatically, we can make mistakes because we are not always conscious of what we are doing. There is a method called Pointing-and-Calling, that may help you to minimize mistakes. Designed by Japanese managers, it is used in many industries that require constant awareness (like the metro management system). Use this method to make unconscious habits more conscious.
