Replying to LO30818 --

Hello Edward, lo-listers,

Funny you remarked this: i've just opened "The Path of the Least
Resistance" by Robert Fritz again: both *nesses have to do with
action- reaction orientation - or so i think - compensating strategies
or addiction loops (in systems dynamics terms). Momentum - who used
that word again lately? - has to be build. The pivotal technique might
help - and i suspect that it is this that Rick has been doing -:

1. Describe were you are (current reality)
2. Describe were you want to be (vision)
3. Formally choose the result you want to have
4. Move on (leave the tension unresolved! The issie arose because we
tend to solve the tension)

Kind regards,

Jan Lelie

- have to coconduct a training tomorrow -
