How To Turn Challenging Situations Around
Your world is about to change.
Things are going to look very different - very soon!
Just reading about the concept will affect the way you think - for a while, anyway!
Accelerate the process - read it a few times quite quickly rather than once slowly.
Turbocharge the process - try to guess/remember, what the next page is about before you
get to it.
Lock it into long-term memory - read it at least once a day this week and then a couple of
times next week.
Make it part of you - explain it to someone else.
Make it second nature - go to sleep thinking about the implications in your areas of
interest. Go for it!
Improving situations systemically
When a situation becomes challenging it's an indication that our current solution
(approach) is getting to the end of its lifetime.
It has either solved all the problems it's able to solve, or the situation has changed and
produced new problems, which the current solution can't solve either.
It's obvious what's needed: a more powerful solution - one that will solve the problems
that the old solution couldn't solve.
It should be straightforward, but it isn't, is it? Why not?
Well, there are a few reasons - all related to the fact that our society underplays a very

"Do you realise we've spent half an hour looking in the street – and only
NOW you decide to tell me you dropped them in the field?"
"Well, the light’s better in the street. It's so dark where I dropped them,
we’d be looking for them all night!"
In order to find the pattern, we have to know where to look for it!
It mightn't be a bad idea to know what it looks like too!
Fortunately, the two are so closely related that when we know what we're looking for,
we'll also know where to look for it! And vice versa.
Can you hazard a guess as to what the pattern would look like - and where to look for it?
How can that be true?
