THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX
Why is a keyboard on a typewriter or computer set up like this?

Q W E R T Y U I O P

Most people think a keyboard is designed for maximum speed in typing, that that's incorrect. Early typewriters would jam if a typist went too fast, so the keyboard was actually designed to slow the operator down! Today, electric typewriters and computers are impossible to jam, so why do we still use this old style keyboard? Because we think inside "boxes" of rules and regulations adopted consciously, or unconsciously, long ago.

It's Called the Aslan Effect:

The Box

1. We make rules based on reasons that make sense.
2. We follow these rules
3. Time passes and things change
4. The original reason for following the rules is gone, but we still follow the rules.

This seminar is 100% practical and relates directly to one's professional and personal life. It examines the five major mental locks that need to be opened for more creative problem solving and decision-making. Each lock is examined carefully and procedures are shown that can be used to eliminate that lock as a stumbling block.

In this seminar you will also learn:

  • How to inspect old rules
  • How to discard old rules and adopt new ones
  • How to take appropriate risks
  • Your own sensitivity to risk-taking and why
  • How to become a better risk taker
  • Why failure isn't fatal or necessarily bad
  • How to be more creative
  • How to avoid the deadly "Judas Trap"
  • And if time permits, a special segment on:

    The Imposter Syndrome
    or:
    Why, if I am so sharp and even successful, do
    I often feel I am not as good as I should be?
    (Why do I feel I am "faking" it?)
