RPM stands for Rapid Planning Method. It’s not another program that will teach you how to manage time; it’s a system that teaches how to adjust your thinking in order to create a life which is more fulfilling and rich.
The review will explain the basics of how the program works, and compare it to other personal development programs out there. So if you have just a few minutes to decide whether Tony Robbins’ RPM method is for you, I suggest you invest them here.
The RPM method is centered on focus. Tony Robins’ main point in the program is that most people don’t achieve more in life because they lack the focus and intensity of thought to pursue and achieve what they really want. If people knew what the outcome that they are striving for, and harness their capabilities towards achieving their goals, then they would actually achieve their goals, and live a more fulfilling life. So all though RPM stands for Rapid Planning Method, it can also be looked at as a Result-oriented, Purpose driven Massive action plan.
The program is based on 3 main questions:
- What do I really want? – what is my desired outcome? This outcome should be as specific as possible and measurable. For example, a good outcome would be “I want to earn $150K each year” as opposed to “I want to earn more money”
- What’s my purpose? – Why am I doing what I’m doing? The Why is even more important than the objective. That’s because the “why” is what gives the objective the emotional fuel. The emotion gives us the motivation to continue on with pursuing the objective even when things don’t work out (and it’s certain that there will be times that they won’t).
- What do I need to do? – What is my massive action plan? Not just one or two things that I can do. It’s important to brainstorm a bunch of ideas, so later we could decide which ones have the most power, and are the most effective in getting me to my goal.
In addition to the question above, which construct the basis of the program, RPM outlines a specific method to build a plan and follow it through. The method is very simple to understand, and consists of just 4 steps:
1. Capturing your thoughts – writing down what you want to accomplish. It could be a big goal, and it could be something you want to achieve today. The main point is to write down the ideas, and don’t keep them in your head where they might vanish.
2. Chunking – Chunking is a way to turn a lot into a little. It’s a way to take all the information that is given to us, and size it up to bits our mind can handle effectively. This step calls for you to identify the similar items you captured on stage one, and group (or chunk) them together under one category. For example refreshing your stock portfolio and starting another savings account could both go under the “finance” category
3. Build an RPM block – An RPM block looks like the table below:
This is a place to take each category and build a block that has all of the RPM elements. This is a place to write down your “why”, plan the massive action plan and write down the requested result, so you don’t loose track.
An example of an RPM block could look something like this:
4. Creating fun/empowering names for your roles – Describing yourself in terms of roles can give a whole new perspective to what you have to do in order to reach your goals. Thinking of new words to describe your actions creates exciting new possibilities of looking at the “ordinary” things that need to get accomplished. For example, the person who wants to get promoted to a new position could think of himself as the new “rising star” in the company, that everything he does works brilliantly and attracts the right kind of attention. This is instead of the usual role of “corporate worker” which all it does is just filling up a position in the company.
An accountant can be a financial detective. A mechanic can be a car surgeon and a secretary can become the treasurer of information.
Whatever name you choose, make sure you are having fun with it, and that it makes you feel good about what you are doing. The point is to have a role for yourself to unleash a child-like behavior that would get you through the challenges of accomplishing your goal.
These are the basic principles of the method. As long as you can answer the first 3 questions, and set up a massive action plan, all you need is the consistency to achieve it. That is accomplished by writing down the goals, and the “why” and putting as much emotion behind each daily activity towards your goal.
If you want a summary of the program from Tony himself, here’s a video that explains the basic principles behind the method:
Pros and cons
- Not that expensive compared to other programs in the industry
- Result oriented and very practical
- The binder includes all sort of tools, and a workbook, but no audio instructions or explanations.
- No spiritual element – All though the program is very practical, I think that as long as it does not include a spiritual aspect behind it, something is missing.
The RPM method is extremely practical. It fits people who want to work methodically, and in an ordered manner. It’s very simple to understand, and all though simple, still makes you think and ask yourself difficult questions. The program then takes the answer you gave to those questions and explains how to build on them and move forward.
With that being said I think that program is still lacking one major aspect, and that is the spiritual side of success and achievement. Most people would probably won’t even notice/care, but I think that a spiritual element that explains the philosophy behind personal success, is important to help to implement and understanding the method.
So if you don’t mind all the spiritual mumbo-jumbo and want results, this program would be excellent for you.
