Writing to be Read

without comments

If you do much writing (or much reading) you’re probably aware that spoken and written language are two different animals. And even though we all speak our native languages fluently, we may or may not write that way. I know I’ve read some viciously bad writing in my time.

Seth Godin points to some interesting work by Steven Berlin Johnson in his brief article, The Secret of Writing to be Read.

Basically, short, simple sentences not only sell more books, but spread ideas farther and faster.

If you do any writing, this is worth noticing. Of course, Seth Godin is always worth noticing, in my opinion.

Design Human Engineering™ in Orlando

without comments

Richard Bandler and John LaValle are training DHE™ in Orlando, Florida in February 2008.

For years Dr. Bandler studied how geniuses used their minds to accomplish what they did and was able to successfully replicate the results they produced. One day he noticed that all of the geniuses he knew got out of bed in the morning because they had to urinate. He decided that wasn’t good enough.

Hello world!

without comments

Wow… this should be interesting.

I started this blog out of my love for Neuro-Linguistic Programming and my desire to see more people learn to love it. Sure, I read great articles and find out about trainings and sales from certain trainers; I subscribe to their newsletters. But there may be lots of good folks out there with whom I’ll never have the opportunity to train because, for whatever reason, I haven’t heard of them and don’t know about their newsletters and mailing lists. And I bet the same is true of you.

So I hope that this will change that. I’m asking for articles, news, and sale notices from everybody who cares to submit them. If I like them, I’ll put them here. If I don’t like them, I won’t. (Hey… it’s my blog.)

I’ll ask for patience. I’m new to WordPress, I’m working alone in my spare time, and if I don’t get to your stuff immediately, it’s probably because I’m working or sleeping.

When I get a chance, I’ll create a “rules” page so you’ll know what I’m looking for and what I’m not. I’ll also be opening it up to comments when I get some content worth commenting on. In the meantime, pass the word.
