The Story of “The Pool” (Paradox creates Contradiction then Internal Struggle)Your target condition is to have Everyone in the swimming pool and to participate in Having Fun while in pool.Current State Condition:• You are pool side and observing current condition and what do you see? • You see 300 people in the pool having fun • You see 600 people standing outside on the pool deck watching those in pool having fun • You see a house, close to the pool, containing 100 peopleRules for use of YOUR Energy:• You cannot talk to the people who are pool side watching those in pool having fun, to persuade them into the pool• You cannot talk to people in house who occasionally “peak” to see what is happening outside to persuade them into the poolThings that make you go Humm…> You Hansei, reflect and create internal struggle as to how you will achieve target condition• Free Will coldly stares you down.• Personal Choice in free will may make for heavy lifting• What if there are people who cannot swim, burdens the minds eye• What if there are people who are deathly afraid of water, creates a blunt reality in you’re head• There are infinite and reasons hidden from view for WHY people will NOT get into the pool. (Some being excuses)Diagram your approach and create your mental model:• Where will you expend your energy?• How will you conserve energy?• What approach will you employ to build trust and confidence in others that being in “The Pool” is the place to be?• How will you reach the target condition?• How will you overcome the “Things that make you go Hummm….???”
100 people “IN THE HOUSE” (Sometimes Peaking outside to See what is happening with the 600 NOT currently in the pool who are watching the 300 in the pool) These House People are considered the “Minority” Target: Move from house to pool area 600 People Around the pool watching “The Majority” Yet they are only 2nd order Majority(They are potential Followers and are in need of better understanding benefits of being in the pool > convert to Leaders) Target: Move from pool area to pool 300 PEOPLE in the Pool 1st order Majority (Leaders)
The Rule of 3 No-one goes into in the house to persuade > no energy is expended here! When more and more of the 600 begin to enter the pool Free Will and Choice and wanting to belong begins to create positive tension Simple human curiosity, people could potentially come out of the house and take the place of the OR 600 standing around pool. (But How?) = People in Pool = People in Pool There is a Psychological Heuristic Model of the phenomenon below out there somewhere Area WHAT IF all 300 people got together and 200 decided to get out of the pool at once and perform what the 3 did, what do you think would happen? 1:3 ratio There is an empirical curve to represent the rate of growth presented here.
