Marshall offers a simple solution to successfully modifying our style by utilizing daily self-monitoring, “active” questions. Active questions measure our effort instead of focusing on our results. The beauty of these active questions is that they will help anyone get better at almost anything. They make us take responsibility for our own behaviors because the questions always begin with, “Did I do my best to…” You simply rate yourself based on your effort for that day. I like to use a 0-10 scale, but pick the one that works for you.
