He then marketed this very successfully through BBC programmes (which is where I first encountered it in the 1970s), books and lecture tours.

But when I’ve had a particularly hard time, I hit these moments where I’m in a foul mood, or I’m just feeling paralyzed, and I’m just stuck. Sometimes I just stew in that and stay there, but sometimes I actually get intelligent and pull my way out of it.
