I have read all the One minute books... I saw that the One Minute Manager touched on my Achilles' Heel...
Each of these One minute books teaches some
attitude, or a thing to do, that makes you and the people you work with happier, more productive, etc.
Occam's razor says: everything should be as simple as it can be but not simpler.
Pop psychology is simplistic. You find yourself nodding vigorously as you read it. But when it comes to doing it... oops. You cannot do it.
The One Minute manager's job is to catch people doing the right things.
Most people cannot. Most people keep their eyes on what you do wrong, what they do wrong... what needs to be fixed. But most importantly they cannot see what is.

If you find yourself on the wrong road... trace your way back to where you went astray... and choose a different road.
Why? Because trying to go across to where you really wanted to go, without going back, is fraught with death traps.
Humanity, some seven thousand years ago, took a wrong turn. In just a few words:
they started to replace reality with word pictures in the mind. Concepts.
This took us to where we are now: not a pretty place. Any and every human is afflicted: no one is exempt.
An "avatar's" job is to take you backwards so you can find your way from there... They have to have earned the right... by going back personally, backtracking themselves.
Most teachers try to cut across... oh the Buddhist, oh the Zen, oh the blah blah... they must know what they are talking about... b.s.
Maybe they know, maybe they don't. But you haven't done the journey back, so you are a second-hander at best, so shut the f... up!

It's New Year's day. Billions of people give and get strokes... happy new year! Thank you, happy new year to you!
You have to answer, reciprocate, or you create a negative balance with the people you didn't answer to... Weird but is so. Violate this at your own demise...
Humans need "strokes", an acknowledgment (validation?) of their existence, to stay alive. The expression Eric Berne uses is, that their spine doesn't shrivel up.
Any strokes will do...

Billionaires are rare creatures.
One of the things you can learn about them is this: they could have become billionaires in almost any business. Not just the one they actually did.
I mean it. But they chose the business they chose, and they chose given what they saw.
One thing the non-billionaires share is that they can see less and less clearly than billionaires.
Their view is cluttered with memes... and remember that memes are words that block you from seeing, block you from even looking...
So we could safely say, that billionaires see more memes for what they are... rules invented by someone else...
...while you see can't see that all memes, all ideas, all thoughts are rules someone else invented for you to stay the same.
And the 67 steps, especially combined with my coaching program, is a cleansing regimen: cleansing you of the memes that cover your eyes. For a minimum of 18 months.
Now, will you achieve billionaire level clarity in 18 months?
You could, but it really depends on the amount of accurate work you put in. More on that factor than where you start.

Latticework can be likened to a Christmas Tree.
I once had a boy friend who bought tree ornaments as gifts every Christmas. Even to people who didn't have a tree... ;-/
One of the barriers to real knowledge, I have found in my students, is compartmentalizing.
The opposite of compartmentalizing is the integrative approach...
I first saw this phenomenon in 1988, when i first read the famous book, What Color Is Your Parachute.
The core of that book is completely wasted on 99% of the readers. The core that talks about portable, transferable skills.
The reason people don't get it, because they cannot see the integrative aspect...
All in all... if we look through spiritual capacities, the issue is that people look through a narrow cone of vision.

This article is about the inner workings of a human... that if you get it wrong, the price you pay for the error is your life.
Is a human like a assembled faucet? When it drips you have to replace the whole thing?
I energize my water in a 5 gallon (20 liter) plastic containers with a spigot.
The spigot is replaceable, but I am not strong enough to unscrew it. I have the replacement spigot... I bought it a year ago, but is still sitting on my kitchen counter. I still need to be mindful that the old spigot, which is just another word for water tap... still drips.

Everything you ever wanted is available to you, if...
... if you are willing to look and see what is so about you and your life.
The truth. Naked. Ugly. Often shameful.
Here is a correspondence I had with a client today:
She said: "I'm interested in changing my
context since it's part of what keeps me stuck."
"... answering the questions: what am I doing? Why am I doing it?
Unless you have done the work of identifying what you have been doing, and why you have been doing it, no way you can shift the context. You cannot catch what you can't see. And you cannot change what you can't catch."

One type of memes that you honor as the truth are called a seemings. It is that way... but if you can change the saying: "It seems to me that..." then it becomes a seeming.
Why turn something into a seeming?
Saying "It seems to me" starts turning on the capacity of responsibility.
Responsibility, the way the capacity sees it, is a privilege. It is a way to look at the world where your power is intact, and you have access to it. Access means: you can feel it, you can use it. Power for what? Power to be well, power to change something, move something, create something.
