Are you the solution or are you the problem?

I am sitting here. In a few hours I have a brainstorming call with a student of mine, who is, who has been, who is proving to be impossible to train… and I am scared and angry.

This article is the process in which I change my context for the call, so I can make a difference… or not… Inside the current context all I can do is yell… Not what I want my life to be. So, here we go…

Useless vs Priceless

Or said in another way: are you the solution or are you the problem?

Your mind is something entirely different, no action comes from the mind… the mind is like Grand Central Station: who knows who is in charge? Surely not you… Continue reading “Consolidating new learning with habit stacking”
