How to be More Productive?


S + R = O | The Discipline of First Response

First Response is the Discipline of building the best possible Response in any Situation to get the best possible Outcome.  An Event is a “thing that happens.”   But the Situation puts the Event into Context,  and the gravity of the Situation is assessed with Situational Awareness that can impact the Response and the Outcome. 

The Growth Mindset plays a powerful role in S+R=O because it sets your Attitudes that impact your Perceptions, Beliefs and Experiences.  And the Growth Mindset is constantly focused on gaining positive Outcomes.

First Response has four Disciplines:

  1. Stop & Listen – Every situation is different and your Attitudes and perception can drive a hasty Response.  Stop & Listen, get the Situation right .
  2. Assess the Situation – The Context of a Situation is your Perceptions, Beliefs and Experiences.  The Mindset Cycle uses Self Talk to walk through the combinations.
  3. Identify Outcomes – Once the Situation is understood, the Mindset Cycle goes after Outcomes derived from Beliefs and Experiences and the Opportunistic Attitudes of the Growth Mindset.
  4. Respond with Discipline – The Growth Mindset will steer toward an Outcome that offers a solution, is productive and makes a difference to the organization.  The Response is measured and delivered with Discipline.
Situations are often driven by our Perceptions and Attitudes.  The Growth Mindset is loaded with positive attitudes and often produces an exceptional Response that is aligned with the purpose and goals of the organization and an envisioned future.

Growth Mindset is the Fuel, Self Talk is the Engine

Self Talk is your mind working through information and identifying what you perceive, what you believe and what you have experienced.  The Growth Mindset is birthed from experiences and your values and guides the Self Talk to better Outcomes.  The system of First Response can be applied in any situation to address any issue regardless of the gravity of the situation.  It is the key to driving productive Growth and positive outcomes on daily, weekly and important occasions.
