How to use new behaviour generator for learning skills?
The New Behavior Generator sets up a template or mental map of unconscious competence for a skill. It organizes us so we can develop skills more easily. We set up a mental structure for our nervous system to follow. We still need to practice and refine to actually get the skill.
We don’t have to learn everything from scratch. Leverage is about learning from the experiences of self and others. We have many references and pieces of behaviors already unconsciously that we can organize and sequence to create new skills.
People learn through observation, practice and refinement. We create strategies to achieve things. If I want to paint my office for instance, I create a plan for moving things out of the way, preparing the surfaces and applying the paint. If I painted rooms as a trade, my set of strategies for this task would be automatic.
