Conversations For Transformation: Essays Inspired By The Ideas Of Werner Erhard Essays By Laurence Platt Inspired By The Ideas Of Werner Erhard And More A Feast For The Eyes Mumm Cuvée, Rutherford, California, USA July 19, 2006 I can't sleep . Throwing off the sheet I pull on shorts and a tee-shirt and walk down the path through the sand dunes to the beach. I amble to the water's edge and stand there with my hands on my hips letting the warm waves lick my toes. It's one of those nights when being alive is its own reward.

I'm not a yogi . What's required is to notice it and to acknowledge it and to leave it alone. The most remarkable aspect of all of creation for me is this: things are , things can simply be .

The End Of Advertising As We Know It--And What To Do Now "How are we supposed to judge a creative idea versus a product idea?" This was a question that surfaced during one of the many long judging sessions last week in the South of France where I got to preside over the Mobile category, one of the 16 categories at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

Shifting Perspective | Motivcoach © Michelle Clarke If you own a cat, and even if you don’t, I’ll bet you’re familiar with feline tactics for attention. Walking, prancing and rolling on a keyboard is a favored manoeuvre. This morning, my cat was doing just that when she accomplished an extraordinary shift; I’m not sure which keys she stood on, and in what sequence, but *viola!* the entire visual on my display screen turned 90 degrees. Coach: I get the sense that you’re just going through the motions. Client: I am Coach: What’s that about? Client: Everything’s going along like It should. Coach: Kind of a Zombie Place? Client: Right. Coach: So we’ll draw a circle and put a label on this perspective, “The Zombie Place”, right there on the top of the circle. Client: Until things change at work, there isn’t much I can do. Coach: Now I’m going to ask you to move over 90 degrees. Client: It could be a plateau. Coach: Like a resting place between changes. Client: It could be a transition period. Coach: Good. Client: Sure…like what? Client: Right

Yesterday, while preparing, I felt a bit anxious. Once I’d realised it was just my anxious thinking, I noticed I felt like posting about that thinking on a couple of Facebook pages for coaches. I received an overwhelming response of support, love, understanding and brilliance. (It had such an impression on me that it inspired this poster). Poster of love I felt the talk went very well, and what follows is a debrief. 1. (To me, it’s one way illustrating how our well-being (feeling of calm, clarity, connection with our inner wisdom, and represented by an upright monkey) is our default setting. The group liked it and developed the metaphor for themselves. 2. 3.
