THE CHIMP PARADOX
Transcript of THE CHIMP PARADOX
Give it a banana
In a school student you may find...
Control your chimp with these strategies
TYPICAL CHIMP BEHAVIOUR
What does this look like?
Distract your chimp
Staying in Bed
Fear of failure
Let your chimp have it's say away from the action, for about 10 mins without interruption.
Go with the flow, however irrational
Deal with it in a measured way. Use facts, logic and truth to calm fears.
"I'll work for 20 mins then I'll text my friend so they know I'm still alive!"

Your chimp runs riot at night
Beware of night time
This is the time when your brain is idle and too tired to engage with rational thought
Doors are opened to the chimps irrational fears
Distract it with positive thought and believe that things will look better when you wake
Distract it with simple mental exercise or games
THE CHIMP PARADOX
Distracts from tasks
Anger and agression
Drives: Sex, Power, Food, Ego
Instincts: Fear, Fight, Flight, Freeze
Jumps to opinion
Thinks in black and white
Acts on feelings
Getting up in the morning
Chimp says 'I think I will stay in bed for 5 more minutes.... I'm tired'
Keep reminding yourself that we dont think until we are on our feet, so when the alarm goes off, count to 5 and getup. The more you say it the more you'll beat your chimp.
I'm going to try and do work for an hour... I'll reply later. Why don't you do the RS essay plan and we can catch up at the end?
I'm going to turn my phone of in half an hour so I go to bed before midnight. Got a test tomorrow!
Vision: How clear are you about what you want to achieve
Effort: How many hours of independent study are you putting in? It should be about 15!
Systems: How do you organise your learning and free time? work to the rule of 8: 8 hours sleeping, 8 hours working, 8 hours leisure.
Practice: What kind of work do you do to practice your skills?
Attitude: How do you respond to setbacks? Develop autopilots.
What is this going to look like over the holidays? Keep an eye open for your inner chimp and see how often you challenge it.
