Analyze and Adjust moment by moment (Fish in Net)

 Analysis and Review of fishing for business is an internal game. The most common obstruction to success is; having a past assumption (or an “anchor”) in your mindset that is pulling you in a direction other than what your business plan outlines. It’s all about figuring out what is producing results and why.

Be Flexible enough to see past yourself

Many times choosing to be flexible requires severing parts of your physical makeup that are actively rewarding you for maintaining connection. Connections in our brain weigh down our functioning like anchors. Our behavior is based on the “anchors” we have created throughout our lives (starting in the womb). You made connections while reading this. “Anchors” are internal responses to an internal or an external experience. 

Whether we have an understanding as to why an anchor is in place or not, there is always a point of legitimacy (or it would not have been created). Problem anchors are exposed when a response is disproportionate to the situation, or when the manner with which you engage is not in line with intent. 

Recognizing what these anchors are and when they are triggered is the goal. 

It is one thing to know what behavioral anchors are in you; but it is absolutely vital to recognize the triggers that lead up to activating the anchors (so that you can be flexible in your behavior when others’ anchors drag you in an unexpected direction). If you can see a hard turn coming; you can prepare yourself to be able to react in an intentional fashion (though it won’t feel natural), rather than purely on instinct and emotion. Anchors are real and carry enormous power, but they are not outside your control. Not all anchors that are disproportionate or that are inappropriate are negative.  

Some anchors are beneficial. With any anchor, it’s wise to consider: 

  • Uniqueness of your stimulus that triggers it
  • Intensity of your response to the situation
  • Purity of your end purpose
  • Timing of when it is (and is not) appropriate
  • Context for when you want this to be a part of your behavior
