  20. 20. Teach to steal by forcing people to share... Getting used to steal People are weary of stealing. But stealing is OK. As long as you give credit. A way to make participants getting comfortable with stealing is by using guided mastery. (See Bandura’s guided mastery, see also #gamification). Exercise: Give each participant four A4 papers. Fill each A4 respectively with: Lines. Triangles. Circles. Squares. Be creative. At each A4 make participants incorporate one interesting ‘element’ from their peers’ previous A4 into theirs.

  29. 29. Exercise: How-to gain confidence? 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9123456789 When we arrived in the Valley we didn’t know anyone outside our comfort zone. Me and Cesar decided that we would try to make an effort to socialize more with strangers. So every Saturday noon we would go to a random Starbucks. We meet self-taught illustrator Juan Villa at such a Starbucks near Edgewood. He taught me this hack: Write numbers from 1 to 9. The left hand writes the mirror image of the right hand. Both hands write at the same speed. Most people are surprisingly good at left-hand mirror sketching. Gain confidence by discovering hidden abilities.
