– fixing what does not work or
– getting away from something you don’t like or
you don’t want, and

satisfy you
CREATINGCREATING
• is a way in which you can bring your
talents, energies, actions, imagination,
reason, intuition and
• even love to the creation you desire

responsive

will take whatever actions necessary to
bring the creation into the world

In the creative processIn the creative process
• You never need to misrepresent toYou never need to misrepresent to
yourself what you think or wantyourself what you think or want
• You focus on yourYou focus on your REALREAL opinions andopinions and
REALREAL desires when you first conceive of adesires when you first conceive of a
resultresult
• You don’t know whether or not it isYou don’t know whether or not it is
possible to create the resultpossible to create the result
• You know only that it seems probableYou know only that it seems probable
First StepFirst Step
• A simple question:
– What results do you want to create?
• You conceive of the result you want
• You don’t know HOW you will GET
THERE
• You want what you want whether or not it
is possible
Criteria for good end resultsCriteria for good end results
1. It is the end result.
2. It is separate from you.
3. It doesn’t have to be created.
4. It is not problem solving.
5. It is what you want independent of whether or
not it’s possible.
6. It is driven by desire, not by circumstances.
7. It is clear and specific, rather than vague and
unspecific. It can be quantified.
8. It is not an ideal.
Second StepSecond Step
• CHOICE!
• Ask the right question:
– What end result do you want?
• Answer it regardless of the circumstances or any
situation
• You know the answer either rationally or
intuitively
• When you make a choice, you focus vast
human energy which goes untapped
How to chooseHow to choose
• Ask the question “What do you want?”
• Don’t limit what you want based on what you
think is possible
• Conceive of the whole picture of what you want
including the circumstances and choose them all
• Ask yourself the test-question: “If I could have it,
would I take it?”
• If YES,
• Formally make your choice
Types of ChoicesTypes of Choices
• Primary Choice – about the final result (this is
something you want)
• Secondary Choices – actions in support of the
primary choice
• Fundamental Choice
• Essentially different from other choices
• It’s not about a direct result
• It’s about a state of being
• It’s about your general orientation/perspective
• It’s a foundation of your life-building process
Fundamental ChoiceFundamental Choice
• to be theto be the predominant creative forcepredominant creative force inin
your life;your life;
• to beto be true to yourselftrue to yourself;;
• to beto be freefree (of fears, negative thoughts and(of fears, negative thoughts and
feelings);feelings);
• to beto be healthyhealthy (mentally, emotionally,(mentally, emotionally,
physically and spiritually).physically and spiritually).
Fundamental ChoiceFundamental Choice
• Once you have made a fundamental
choice  you will naturally organize your
primary and secondary choices in concert
with the fundamental choice
 the level of your involvement becomes
self-generating rather than dependent
upon circumstances
Third Step: Current RealityThird Step: Current Reality
• Accurately describing the present
conditions is a skill that can be developed
• You need to develop the skill of viewing
reality objectively
Common MistakesCommon Mistakes
• Describing only what you don’t like about the
condition
• Describing only what you do like about the
condition
• Making it seem worse than it really is
• Making it seem better than it really is
• Minimizing how good or bad it is
• Imposing how it “should” be on how it really is
• Analyzing how it got to be the way it is

Structural TensionStructural Tension
• Tension can only be resolved in three
ways:
1. You can give up what you want (vision).
2. You can misrepresent what you currently have
(current reality).
3. You can create what you want (structural tension
– creative tension)
• Tension is structural, not psychological
FOCUSFOCUS
• an important ability in the creative process
that can be developed
• focusing on
• the result and
• what you currently have in relation to the result
• Principle:
“Conscious focus creates energy”
Two types of motivationTwo types of motivation
1. Our actions are motivated either by our
circumstances
– Problems, unwanted consequences,
conflicts, lack of resources, conflict of
interests, pressure from others
 REACTING AND RESPONDING
(action is either a reaction against or a
response to circumstances)
The problemThe problem
LEADS TO
Action to solve the problem

Two types of motivationTwo types of motivation
1. Our actions are motivated by desire and
aspiration
– To bring something into being, to
accomplish results that matter, to build
something
 CREATING
(action taken is motivated by desire to
achieve an end result)
PROBLEM SOLVINGPROBLEM SOLVING ::
IS TAKING ACTION TO HAVE
SOMETHING GO AWAY
– THE PROBLEM
CREATINGCREATING ::
IS TAKING ACTION TO HAVE
SOMETHING COME INTO BEING
– THE CREATION
Tension-Resolution SystemsTension-Resolution Systems
• A structural principle in nature:
– tension seeks resolution
• In nature and in our lives there are
structures of
– Simple tension-resolution systems
– Complex tension-resolution systems
Simple SystemSimple System
• Contains one single tension
– Tension  Resolution
– Hungry  Eat
– Overweight  Not eat
• Two simple systems tied together
– Tension  Resolution
– Hungry  Eat
– Overweight  Not eat
• You can’t resolve the tension in these two
systems
• Resolution in the system increases the
tension of the other system
– Tension Resolution
– Hungry Eat
– Overweight Not eat
• On the level of appearance the dieter is
taking action to lose weight
• On the level of structure, the actions are
designed to resolve structural conflict
Structural ConflictStructural Conflict
• We have two or more tension-resolution systems
with mutually exclusive points of resolution
• The behaviour you see is oscillation over an
extended period of time
• The underlying structure gives rise to your
behaviour
• Sometimes it’s easier to diet, sometimes it’s
easier to eat
Basic Structure of StructuralBasic Structure of Structural
ConflictConflict
• Tension Resolution
• Desire to have Have
end result desired result
• Belief you can’t Do not have the
have what you desired result
want
This structure reinforces fixed patterns of
behaviour. It’s common in our lives.
Basic Structure of StructuralBasic Structure of Structural
ConflictConflict
• Is formed by two competing tension -
resolution systems
1. Your desire
2. Your incompatible dominant belief that you can’t
have what you desire!
• “Solving” structural conflict:
1. You “give up” your dominant belief
2. You “give up” your desire
• Structural Conflict is NOT resolvable
Compensating StrategiesCompensating Strategies
1. Staying within the area of tolerable conflict
2. Conflict manipulation
3. Willpower manipulation
• You may develop one or more of these
strategies  all of them inhibit true
creating
Area of tolerable conflictArea of tolerable conflict
• The goal is equilibrium
• Minimize the amplitude of the oscillation
• Oscillation creates emotional experiences
(minimize uncomfortable feelings so that they
can be tolerated; avoid change; “you don’t rock
the boat”; when challenged – move away from
conflict)
• Behaviour limits aspiration and minimizes loss
• Reaching for only the “realistic”
Area of tolerable conflictArea of tolerable conflict
Negative
Belief
Desire
Conflict ManipulationConflict Manipulation
• You try to “motivate” yourself into action
by
– Intensifying the conflict – presenting a
“negative” vision (fear, guilt, and pity) or
unwanted consequence
– Taking action only to reduce pressure and
relieve the emotional conflict instead of
creating what you want
Conflict ManipulationConflict Manipulation
Negative
Consequence
I can have
what I want

Willpower ManipulationWillpower Manipulation
• Many people take little or no action unless they
“motivate” themselves through
– positive attitudes (“self-manipulation”),
– positive thinking (“affirmations”, “mantras”),
– inspiration,
– exaggerated determination (forcing themselves in
compliance with what they wish to see happen)
– the structure reinforces powerlessness over time

• Structural conflict is not resolvable
• We need another structure that is senior to
structural conflict
• This NEW structure:
– incorporates structural conflict into itself
– transposes a complex structure into a simple
structure
– it has ONE major tension  with a tendency
to completely resolve it in favour of the
desired result
 STRUCTURAL TENSION

The pivotal techniqueThe pivotal technique
• Is used when circumstances are not the way
you want them to be
1. Describe where you are
2. Describe where you want to be
3. Once again, formally choose the result you want
4. Move on
 This technique re-establishes STRUCTURAL
TENSION

  • 11. In the creative processIn the creative process • You never need to misrepresent toYou never need to misrepresent to yourself what you think or wantyourself what you think or want • You focus on yourYou focus on your REALREAL opinions andopinions and REALREAL desires when you first conceive of adesires when you first conceive of a resultresult • You don’t know whether or not it isYou don’t know whether or not it is possible to create the resultpossible to create the result • You know only that it seems probableYou know only that it seems probable
  • 12. First StepFirst Step • A simple question: – What results do you want to create? • You conceive of the result you want • You don’t know HOW you will GET THERE • You want what you want whether or not it is possible
  • 13. Criteria for good end resultsCriteria for good end results 1. It is the end result. 2. It is separate from you. 3. It doesn’t have to be created. 4. It is not problem solving. 5. It is what you want independent of whether or not it’s possible. 6. It is driven by desire, not by circumstances. 7. It is clear and specific, rather than vague and unspecific. It can be quantified. 8. It is not an ideal.
  • 14. Second StepSecond Step • CHOICE! • Ask the right question: – What end result do you want? • Answer it regardless of the circumstances or any situation • You know the answer either rationally or intuitively • When you make a choice, you focus vast human energy which goes untapped
  • 15. How to chooseHow to choose • Ask the question “What do you want?” • Don’t limit what you want based on what you think is possible • Conceive of the whole picture of what you want including the circumstances and choose them all • Ask yourself the test-question: “If I could have it, would I take it?” • If YES, • Formally make your choice
  • 16. Types of ChoicesTypes of Choices • Primary Choice – about the final result (this is something you want) • Secondary Choices – actions in support of the primary choice • Fundamental Choice • Essentially different from other choices • It’s not about a direct result • It’s about a state of being • It’s about your general orientation/perspective • It’s a foundation of your life-building process
  • 17. Fundamental ChoiceFundamental Choice • to be theto be the predominant creative forcepredominant creative force inin your life;your life; • to beto be true to yourselftrue to yourself;; • to beto be freefree (of fears, negative thoughts and(of fears, negative thoughts and feelings);feelings); • to beto be healthyhealthy (mentally, emotionally,(mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually).physically and spiritually).
  • 18. Fundamental ChoiceFundamental Choice • Once you have made a fundamental choice  you will naturally organize your primary and secondary choices in concert with the fundamental choice  the level of your involvement becomes self-generating rather than dependent upon circumstances
  • 19. Third Step: Current RealityThird Step: Current Reality • Accurately describing the present conditions is a skill that can be developed • You need to develop the skill of viewing reality objectively
  • 20. Common MistakesCommon Mistakes • Describing only what you don’t like about the condition • Describing only what you do like about the condition • Making it seem worse than it really is • Making it seem better than it really is • Minimizing how good or bad it is • Imposing how it “should” be on how it really is • Analyzing how it got to be the way it is

  • 22. Structural TensionStructural Tension • Tension can only be resolved in three ways: 1. You can give up what you want (vision). 2. You can misrepresent what you currently have (current reality). 3. You can create what you want (structural tension – creative tension) • Tension is structural, not psychological
  • 23. FOCUSFOCUS • an important ability in the creative process that can be developed • focusing on • the result and • what you currently have in relation to the result • Principle: “Conscious focus creates energy”
  • 24. Two types of motivationTwo types of motivation 1. Our actions are motivated either by our circumstances – Problems, unwanted consequences, conflicts, lack of resources, conflict of interests, pressure from others  REACTING AND RESPONDING (action is either a reaction against or a response to circumstances)
  • 25. The problemThe problem LEADS TO Action to solve the problem LEADS TO Less intensity of the problem LEADS TO Less action to solve the problem LEADS TO The problem remaining
  • 26. Two types of motivationTwo types of motivation 1. Our actions are motivated by desire and aspiration – To bring something into being, to accomplish results that matter, to build something  CREATING (action taken is motivated by desire to achieve an end result)
  • 27. PROBLEM SOLVINGPROBLEM SOLVING :: IS TAKING ACTION TO HAVE SOMETHING GO AWAY – THE PROBLEM CREATINGCREATING :: IS TAKING ACTION TO HAVE SOMETHING COME INTO BEING – THE CREATION
  • 28. Tension-Resolution SystemsTension-Resolution Systems • A structural principle in nature: – tension seeks resolution • In nature and in our lives there are structures of – Simple tension-resolution systems – Complex tension-resolution systems
  • 29. Simple SystemSimple System • Contains one single tension – Tension  Resolution – Hungry  Eat – Overweight  Not eat • Two simple systems tied together – Tension  Resolution – Hungry  Eat – Overweight  Not eat
  • 30. • You can’t resolve the tension in these two systems • Resolution in the system increases the tension of the other system – Tension Resolution – Hungry Eat – Overweight Not eat
  • 31. • On the level of appearance the dieter is taking action to lose weight • On the level of structure, the actions are designed to resolve structural conflict
  • 32. Structural ConflictStructural Conflict • We have two or more tension-resolution systems with mutually exclusive points of resolution • The behaviour you see is oscillation over an extended period of time • The underlying structure gives rise to your behaviour • Sometimes it’s easier to diet, sometimes it’s easier to eat
  • 33. Basic Structure of StructuralBasic Structure of Structural ConflictConflict • Tension Resolution • Desire to have Have end result desired result • Belief you can’t Do not have the have what you desired result want This structure reinforces fixed patterns of behaviour. It’s common in our lives.
  • 34. Basic Structure of StructuralBasic Structure of Structural ConflictConflict • Is formed by two competing tension - resolution systems 1. Your desire 2. Your incompatible dominant belief that you can’t have what you desire! • “Solving” structural conflict: 1. You “give up” your dominant belief 2. You “give up” your desire • Structural Conflict is NOT resolvable
  • 35. Compensating StrategiesCompensating Strategies 1. Staying within the area of tolerable conflict 2. Conflict manipulation 3. Willpower manipulation • You may develop one or more of these strategies  all of them inhibit true creating
  • 36. Area of tolerable conflictArea of tolerable conflict • The goal is equilibrium • Minimize the amplitude of the oscillation • Oscillation creates emotional experiences (minimize uncomfortable feelings so that they can be tolerated; avoid change; “you don’t rock the boat”; when challenged – move away from conflict) • Behaviour limits aspiration and minimizes loss • Reaching for only the “realistic”
  • 37. Area of tolerable conflictArea of tolerable conflict Negative Belief Desire
  • 38. Conflict ManipulationConflict Manipulation • You try to “motivate” yourself into action by – Intensifying the conflict – presenting a “negative” vision (fear, guilt, and pity) or unwanted consequence – Taking action only to reduce pressure and relieve the emotional conflict instead of creating what you want
  • 39. Conflict ManipulationConflict Manipulation Negative Consequence I can have what I want I can’t have what I want I can’t have what I want I can have what I want
  • 40. Willpower ManipulationWillpower Manipulation • Many people take little or no action unless they “motivate” themselves through – positive attitudes (“self-manipulation”), – positive thinking (“affirmations”, “mantras”), – inspiration, – exaggerated determination (forcing themselves in compliance with what they wish to see happen) – the structure reinforces powerlessness over time
  • 42. • Structural conflict is not resolvable • We need another structure that is senior to structural conflict • This NEW structure: – incorporates structural conflict into itself – transposes a complex structure into a simple structure – it has ONE major tension  with a tendency to completely resolve it in favour of the desired result  STRUCTURAL TENSION
  • 43. Structural TensionStructural Tension VISION Result you want to create Current Reality What you now have T E N S I O N RESOLUTION R E S U L T SEEKS INCLUDING SOMETIMES STRUCTURAL CONFLICT (Oscillation) LOVE TRUTH
  • 44. The pivotal techniqueThe pivotal technique • Is used when circumstances are not the way you want them to be 1. Describe where you are 2. Describe where you want to be 3. Once again, formally choose the result you want 4. Move on  This technique re-establishes STRUCTURAL TENSION

Editor's Notes

  1. The educational system doesn’t focus on the results you as a student want. Instead it promotes the notion that what you should learn is process. You should learn how to do math, construct sentences, how to write research papers and lab reports. The assumption is that as you become fluent in these processes, the results will take care of themselves.
  2. Conversations have also simple tension resolution systems (question – answer)‏
