Dan Hawkins on Keeping Score in Life
Dan Hawkins has become one of the best teachers in the LIFE Business. Indeed, because he had to make the changes in his own life, he is amply qualified to share how others can make the same changes. Dan and Lisa Hawkins applied the PDCA (Plan, Do, Check and Adjust) process as well as anyone in LIFE and are reaping the rewards from their perseverance and courage. In this video, Dan shares how to keep score in the game of life. Furthermore, he teaches how important the Check step is for people to change. Sadly, only a minority of people will make plans, but only a few of these will actually do the plan.
Dan Hawkins Believes the Check Step is the Key for Life Transformations
However, even planning and doing is not enough because it’s the adjust step that is the difference maker. But, the adjust step requires a scoreboard to determine what the results of the current plan and actions were. In other words, the PDCA process must do all four steps. Unfortunately, here is how it breaks down in real life. For the majority of people they don’t do P, D, C, or A. However, around 33% will plan, but never do anything to accomplish it. Next, is the 10% who actually do the plan developed. This is a great start as they created a plan and did the work. Even so, without checking the results, a person cannot make adjustments; therefore, he cannot improve like someone who does the full PDCA process. Dan does a great job of describing this and more in the following video.
