Today’s to-do list

Is complete.


By asking people about purpose, “what matters” and what is the problem we are really trying to solve.
Short words, but powerful in the correct order.

More powerful than this too…


A large hammer.

I asked for a volunteer, then asked everybody else to sit around the table with their hands resting on the table top palms down.
Then produced the large hammer suddenly from behind a cupboard and gave it to the volunteer with the instructions,

“Starting here [ pointing at back of unfortunate lady’s head] I want you to work your way around the table hitting their hands with the hammer as hard as you can until I tell you to stop”

To demonstrate the value of just stopping , even if you have nothing to replace it with, sometimes even nothing is better.
