  • 1. The Third Way A fresh perspective on perspective
  • 2. Why don't you have what you want?
      • You don't know what you want.
      • If you did, you don't have a plan to get it.
      • If you do, the steps are overwhelming,
      • ...and if they aren't, then every time you start...for some mysterious reason you stop right away.
  • 3. A Goal, and a Plan
    • To start with, you need to know what you want and how to get it.

  • 6. If I were drowning in a sea of self-doubt, I'd want a PFD
  • 7. Perspective, Facts, Discovery
    • First Perspective:
    • What is your opinion of the situation you are reliving, was it:
      • A failure?
      • A complete disaster?
      • A catastrophe of biblical proportions?
    • Then answer this:
  • 8. Who died, was crippled, or had their life destroyed? Nobody? Thought so. Looks like you need some perspective.
  • 9. Facts
    • The Facts ma'am, just the facts.
      • Who was involved?
      • When did it happen (what's the context)?
      • What happened?
      • What really happened?
      • Why did it turn out the way it did?
      • Who else shared the responsibility?
  • 10. Discovery
      • What did I learn about myself in the process?
      • What inner or character strength did I exhibit by getting through this?
      • What lesson did I learn?
      • What have I accomplished as a result of that lesson?

  • 12. If you stop picking at it, it won't bleed anymore.
