You can count the number of seeds in every apple,
but you can’t count the number of apples in every
seed. Think of the REALITIES, but at the same time
think of the POSSIBILITIES.
The jigsaw puzzle. Take time to exchange
information. Be sure you are all talking the same
language and seeing the same picture.
We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints;
We spend more, but have less;
We buy more, but enjoy it less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families;
More conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
More knowledge, but less judgement;
More experts, but more problems;
More medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much,
Smoke too much,
Spend too recklessly,
Laugh too little,
Drive too fast,
Get too angry too quickly,
Stay up too late,
Get up too tired,
Watch too much TV,
And pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our
values,
We talk too much, love too seldom and lie too often,
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life;
We’ve added years to life, not life to years.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back but have
trouble
Crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.
We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space;
We’ve done larger things, but not better things;
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul;
We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice;
We write more, but learn less;
Plan more, but accomplish less.
We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait;
We have higher incomes, but lower morals;
More food but less appeasement;
More acquaintances, but fewer friends;
More effort but less success.
To produce more copies than ever, but have less
communication;
We’ve become long on quantity, but short on quality.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion;
Tall men, and short characters;
Steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are the times of world peace, but domestic
warfare;
More leisure and less fun;
More kinds of food, but less nutrition.
These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce;
Of fancier houses but broken homes.
These are the days of quick trips,
Disposable nappies,
Throw away morality,
One-night stands,
Overweight bodies,
And pills that do everything from cheer,
To quiet, to kill.
It is a time when there is much in the show window
And nothing in the stockroom.
Indeed it’s all true.
The chief cause of failure and unhappiness
Is trading what we want most
For what we want at the moment.

Our Behaviors Habits determine the
BLUE or RED in our Organization
How I behave starts with my “Pictures” or “Paradigms”
What I
“See”
Believe or
Disbelieve
Get or
Not Get
Creating my
HABITS
Makes me
So that I
Do
Therefore, to change habits start 1st by
Behaviors in Action
Our Current Approach to Change
If I do not Get what I want
I only change what I am doing
Not Get
Do
Thus no Change in Habit/Behavior
NB. Find the “Pictures” or “Paradigms” that create RED behavior
The 6 RED pictures
1.
There is only one version of the truth
2.
The world is a finite (limited) place
3.
The world is an unfriendly place
4.
Some of us are better than others
5.
My success lies in being Independent
6.
Coercive power gets things done
Getting things done
Getting things done right
Getting right things done right
Getting right things done right
Together……..
Getting right things done right

The Disengaged School Principal
A father knocks on his son's door. "Jaime," he says,
"wake up!"
Jaime answers, "I don't want to get up, Papa."
The father shouts, "Get up, you have to go to school."
Jaime says, "I don't want to go to school."
"Three reasons," says Jaime. "First, because it's so dull;
second, the kids tease me; and third, I hate school."
And the father says, "Well, I am going to give you three
reasons why you must go to school. First, because it
is your duty; second, because you are forty-five years
old, and third, because you are the headmaster."

Autobiography in FIVE SHORT CHAPTERS
From “There’s a hole in my sidewalk” by Portia
Nelson
1.
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost … I am helpless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.
2.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.
3.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in. It’s a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault. I get out immediately.
4.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.
5.
I walk down another street
FRACTALS
The word fractal has its origin in mathematics.
Fractals are the visual depiction of mathematical
equations, the same equations that describe natural
phenomena like coastlines, plant shapes and
weather patterns.
Fractal shapes appear everywhere. A fractal object
repeats a similar pattern or design at ever-smaller
levels of scale. No matter where you look, the same
pattern will be evident, yet no two fractals are
exactly alike.
In nature there are an infinite number of examples
of fractals: e.g. the repeated form of the cells in a
honeycomb, the form and structure of leaves, the
scales on the skin of a snake, the dominant shape of
the broccoli head, the shape of the clouds etc.
The word is now also used to describe social
phenomena:
“I believe that fractals also have direct application
for the leadership of organizations. The very best
organizations have a fractal quality about them. An
observer…can tell what the organization’s values
and ways of doing business are by watching anyone,
whether it be a production floor employee or a
senior manager. There is a consistency and
predictability to the quality of behaviour. No
matter where we look in these organizations, selfsimilarity is found in its people, in spite of the
complex range of roles and levels.”
Margaret Wheatley.
We promote the concept of fractals to enable
people to address their major concerns – to make a
difference. They are encouraged to decide upon a
simple action, which they can repeat at regular
intervals, and which either by their own effort or
the support of others will contribute to the solution
of the problem.

THE STORY OF LECH WALESA
WHO BECAME PRESIDENT OF POLAND
He was a dockworker in Gdansk, a Polish Port on the
Baltic Sea.
It was 1986.
Poland had been occupied forcefully by the Soviets
since 1945 and had tried several times to oust the
Soviet Occupation.
It was a Saturday. Lech Walesa and about 12 fellow
dockworkers were having lunch in the docks, discussing
what they could do to get rid of the Soviets.
On the next Tuesday 9 million Poles came out on
strike, demanding that the Soviets get out of Poland.
The history of the World changed that Tuesday.
Communism lost its power and dominance.
Gorbachev and Perestroika replaced communism.
The USSR was broken up.
The Berlin Wall fell.
The “cold war” between the West and the USSR
warmed.
The nuclear arms race came to and end.
What a multiplier effect!
How did it happen?
Tuesday’s plan to strike – and ask those 8 to tell
another 8, and those 8 to tell another 8 … and so on.
The Pensioner’s Lament – time waits for nobody!
If I had my life to live over again, I’d not be afraid
of more
mistakes, next time.
In fact I’d relax a lot more.
I’d limber up, I’d be sillier than I had been on this
trip.
In fact I know very few things that I’d take so
seriously.
I’d take more chances, I’d take more trips,
I’d climb more mountains.
I’d go more places than I’d ever been before.
I’d eat more ice-cream and fewer beans.
I’d have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary
ones.
You see I was one of those people that lived
prophylactically
and sanely and sensibly hour after hour, day after
day.
and if I had to live my life all over again,
I’d try to have more of those moments.
In fact I would try to have nothing else but
wonderful
moments, side by side by side,
I was one of those people who never went anywhere
without a
thermometer, a hot water bottle, a gargle,
a raincoat and a parachute.
If I had to do it all over again, I’d travel lighter next
time.
If I had my life to live over again, I’d play with more
children
pick more daisies.
I’d love more.
If I had my life to live over again.
But you see I don’t ……
We’re given only one.

Nasrudin was now an old man looking back on his life. He sat
with his friends in the tea shop telling his story.
“When I was young I was fiery – I wanted to awaken
everyone. I prayed to Allah to give me the strength to change
the world.
In mid-life I awoke one day and realized my life was half over
and I had changed no one. So I prayed to Allah to give me the
strength to change those close around me who so much needed
it.
Alas, now I am old and my prayer is simpler. ‘Allah,’ I ask,
‘please give me the strength to at least change myself’
comes down to a single imperative - your ability to grow and
