The S/R/D tool supports me to be really “clear” with myself. Ask myself questions so I won’t stay stuck or dive in headfirst. What is the challenge? Okay. Now what? Break it down? What have I done? What could I do? What am I willing to do? This tool is one of the best ways I let go of “black and white” thinking. It has the added benefit of building trust and confidence within myself. I can clearly see and anchor how my die zone begins shrinking while my comfort zone expands!!!
The first thing that the SRD tool gave me was an awareness that I aimed for the die zone every single time .. and I was failing simply because I pushed too hard, for too much. Inevitably, I bungee-corded back to my comfort zone with my cookies and ice cream. The SRD tool allowed me to soften my approach with myself and to consider heading up a hill instead of hiring a Sherpa and to scale Mount Everest.
