Nikhil Gupta started this blog about self-development as a result of attending one of my Breakthrough events. How cool is that!? We all need self-development, so check out his blog here and let him know what you think.
The introduction explains that part of the daily process is sharing the goal, taking action and making requests. The suggestions Lisa offers fall into one of four categories, including 'Obliterating Resistance' - just saying that out loud almost motivates me to finish this book tonight.
Yes, I like the words, "obliterating resistance," too. It feels liberating to use a term like obliterate to mean something positive. Here's a snippet from post 2:
I believe in the power of questions as a conversation ignitor. In particular - the conversations we have in our own mind - conversations we sometimes take for granted. Lisa lists five 'states of mind' that we can exercise in order to recognize and manifest possibilities:
And he says there will be more posts in the series. Goody! If it isn't already, throw ConverStations into your aggregator and keep up with all the great posts. Thanks, Mike, for taking the time and energy to do this series!
If you are a regular reader - thanks! If you are just stopping by, welcome! I have decided to merge two of my blogs, this one and Management Craft, when it comes to posts about producing breakthroughs.
Here's why. The posts fit in both places and I have many more readers over on Management Craft (the blog is two years old), so I tend to post things there.
I will leave this blog up and may use it in the future to post daily nudges about the daily practice or to journal the progress of a group going through the two week breakthrough process.
So for the current posts about how to generate breakthroughs, please subscribe to Management Craft. It's an area about which I am passionate, and will write regularly.
I don't often cross promote my blogs, but I am making an exception. I have resurrected the Chile Pepper High blog. I was working on turning it into an online magazine, but this project has been put on hold. It's good to be back where my heart and soul can dance!
Do you like the header for this blog? In the background is a slice of a fractal. I chose this because I think that chaos and complexity theories offer many lessons/intriguing thoughts about breakthroughs. More on this later.
