This covers day 20 of 30 for the Hypnotherapy Project, which I'm collaborating on with Los Angeles-based hypnotherapist Greg Beckett. You can read more about this experiment, what motivated it and what we hope to accomplish here.
Sometimes I come to Greg's and talk.
And talk and talk and talk.
A lot of this "figuring things out as you go" stuff is debriefing. Or, as I like to call it, "talking."
So on Wednesday, Greg and I talked for an hour and a half about the project, stuff we were learning, stuff that was happening in real life that might affect the direction for the project, which would (in turn) affect the learning.
And at some point, he'd had enough, which I grokked partly because he stood up, grabbed the headphones and said, "You're going to listen to a tape today."
And partly because I said, "If I'm going to listen to a tape, can't I listen to it at home?"
Done and done.
Sometimes things work out and you get the talk you need and the time you want.
And an amazingly sound night's sleep, to boot...
