warning: as far as i know there is no empirical evidence to suggest this results in you becoming awesome
Step 1) Try and be as reality based as you can.
It is suprisingly hard to actually see reality as it really is, and see yourself as you really are (probably is actually impossible). Human's view of reality is continually clouded by cognitive biases (that probably did have benefits for our evolutionary progress, or were at least harmless, but now are detremental). It is worth trying to highlight these biases when you experience them yourself, or see others falling for them. Hopefully with enough enforcement you will stop falling for them so easily and thus become more intune with reality. There is a great stub on wikipedia that lists a tonnes of them
Note: i also find it really fascinating
Step 2) Never Lie
I've been doing this actively for quite a few months now as mentioned on my blog before. I probably still do some lying that is so second nature i don't even notice, but i haven't actively lied for the whole period. I was inspired to do this by reading this Sam Harris essay
While there are benefits to this without step 3, it is step 3 that really makes this an effective way of becoming awesome
Step 3) Big yourself up
Not sure exactly how to say this, but actively announce what your plans/goals are in life, don't hedge your bets or set easily attainable goals. Set yourself up as the perfect person.
What this system will do will set you up to fail continually, and hopefully your ego will ensure you don't fail too pathetically, as you aren't allowed to lie you might actually do what you are supposed to do instead of not doing it, and then lying about it. You set yourself up as the perfect person, who can do no wrong, and then try and live up to the image you created, whilst not being allowed to lie. Hopefully you will eventually become that person.
Lets all try it out and see what happens guys!
