Tackling Immunity to Change

Drawing from two terrific books (Immunity to Change and How the Way We Talk Can Change the Way We Work), host Tara Rodden Robinson introduces a way to take on significant change in your life. The idea is to uncover your "big assumption"--the obstacle that's getting in the way of your improvement goal--and dismantle it to free you to experience the change you want to see.

I listened to this podcast today and it was HUGE! My 'one big thing' was to follow my routine each day. This nickname is my 'Parade of Daily awesomness' or PODA. I had done a lot of legwork to make it stick, I had tried babysteps etc but I couldn't make myself do it each day but I didn't know why.

Through the process of answering the questions and going deeper and deeper I work out my 'big assumption'. I had never realised that I thought this but my big assumption was 'that women with children aren't allowed lives of their own until the children have left home'.
WOW this is big. I didn't want to waste 'my time' now (before children) doing mundane things as I thought I would have 25 years of chores once the kids came along.

Looking at the evidence against this assumption is miraculous for me. I am so very emotional at present, alternating between laughing and crying. My life is going to be a LOT freer as I work through this issue.

Thank you so much to Tara and the members of these podcasts, you're changing my life all the way over here in New Zealand. Bless you xxx

Hi Tara,
I've been listening to some of the podcasts and I'm slowly workng my way through jumping here and there, and today i listened to this podcast. I was wondering - you mentioned in this podcast that you had some notes with the questions? What's your "big thing", etc.

Can you point me to that? I'd be so grateful.

By the way, I really enjoy your podcast so much. You've turned me on to many things that are greatly changing my life. Leo Babauta for one. Lifechanging - really the missing key to GTD for me.
