Taking my shot at describing, capturing for future, further access, what I learned this week—whether I really understood it, or not.

[1] the choice of, not between

From the book, The Opposable Mind, the idea of considering options, including distasteful ones, as sets of factors that can be material for something new, something other than an either-or proposition...something best of both worlds—something better.

Everything is material.
It's what you make of it.

[2] questions are not accusations

Wait a sec before answering. Before deciding what that question really means. Leave room for us to just not be in sync. What he's asking—what's on your mind. Two different things. Maybe a lot different. Leave some room for that. Try just answering the question asked.

[3] Transition begins when?

I can't stop thinking ahead. I'm so used to it—most of the time I don't know when I'm doing it.

Do you?
