Have you ever said, “Freedom is being able to do what I want, when I want, and with who I want?”

I have uttered this common phrase at some point.

But is it true?

This week’s mindset tip: Freedom is the result of Deliberate Practice.

My entrepreneurial journey has taught me that freedom is only available to organized, focused, and intentional individuals—those few individuals who have mastered themselves in time.

Remember when everyone began to work from home? Most soon found out that the only way they would get things done was to build a schedule and develop a routine. They became deliberate.

I get it. When I first became self-employed, I had no routine, systems, or actual model to follow. I did what I wanted when I wanted.

As a result, I floundered, and my results were pitiful. I was not free!

Then, I learned the secret skill of all high achievers: Deliberate Practice.

Deliberate Practice is how individuals considered experts, superstars, or authorities in their field operate.

And since success leaves clues, I decided to adopt this technique.

Deliberate Practice involves setting goals, receiving feedback, and focusing on areas of your performance that need improvement.

Here are five steps for implementing Deliberate Practice and developing mastery.

  1. Break your goals down into smaller manageable tasks.
  2. Do the tasks in the same order or sequence.
  3. Track your progress.
  4. Evaluate your progress and get feedback.
  5. Identify your weaknesses and develop a strategy for improvement.

If you are like me and constantly looking for ways to improve your skills or achieve greater success, Deliberate Practice is a powerful tool to add to your toolkit.
You see freedom in not doing what you want when you want.

Freedom is taking the action that put you in a position to have choices.
