KEEP REMEMBERING THAT ONE OF YOUR MIND’S GREAT STRENGTHS IS THAT IT IS A VERITABLE KNOWING MACHINE

So what do you know?
If you are a fan of my “how to think like a dolphin” approach, you know carps, you know sharks and you know NoQuiffs (Not Quite Flying Fish). In a world that technological revolutions have sent reeling, this knowledge is going to be increasingly needed, if not always welcomed.
The world’s main [...]

AN ANTI-BRAIN-BIAS CHECKLIST
TO IMPROVE OUR THINKING BY HELPING
US LOOK BEFORE WE LEAP!

Ever since reading Dr. Atul Gawande’s bestselling book, The Checklist Manifesto, I’ve thought a great deal about the value of using checklists to help make complicated things more manageable and dependable—more safe and trustworthy.
Gawande was the driving force behind the compilation of a single, one-page checklist of 19 items to help hospitals reduce the surgical [...]

ONE OF MY BLOG READERS WANTS A PITHY EXPLANATION OF WHY I REALLY WROTE LEAP!

One of my readers has e-mailed me to ask for “a succinct understanding” of why I wrote LEAP! before he decides whether to cork over $29 and change for the whole 243-page enchilada.
I thank him for his interest and his inquiry, but it ain’t going to happen. The “pithy” part, that is. Too much went [...]

MORE OFTEN THAN YOU MIGHT THINK, STEPPING BACK CAN BE THE BEST GATEWAY
TO MAKING THE LEAP!

This will come as no secret to creative people. The more gifted ones amongst us learn early on that the “Aha!” (breakthrough moment or idea) is too frequent a companion to the “Ahhhaaaaaaaa” (the pause or moment of relaxation) to be accidental.
Lately, any number of published works have been calling our attention anew to the [...]

A LURCH IS NOT THE SAME AS A LEAP!—AND THIS U.S. PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN ALMOST OVERWHELMINGLY ABOUT LURCHING, NOT LEAP! ING

When used as a verb, “lurch” is usually defined something like this: “1. To stagger. 2. To roll or pitch suddenly or erratically.” When the word refers to an act, it refers to something that is observably opportunistic. That is to say, something that is, at minimum, seeking an edge, an advantage, an opening, a [...]

THE DAUGHTER OF THE FIRST BLACK PERSON TO STEP ONTO ANTARCTICA ENTHUSIASTICALLY ENDORSES OUR LEAP!  BOOK! THANK YOU, LEILANI!

That’s the gorgeous Leilani Henry you see at left. And that’s merely how she looks. Wait until you get a peek at her brain (figuratively speaking, of course)!
You’ll be gazing at hyper-energetic “command central” for one of the new LEAP! book’s greatest fans.
She’s ecstatic that the LEAP! psychology, strategy and tactics have now been articulated [...]

THINK LIKE A DOLPHIN AND DO
THE NEXT RIGHT, SMART, GOOD THING
COME HELL OR HIGH WATER!

Not for nothing have I defined “the LEAP!” as finding and mobilizing the next right, smart, good thing or move.
Actually, I’ve done more than just define “the LEAP!” As anyone who has looked around this website knows, I’ve spent a goodly amount of time lately writing a book about the idea.
I did so after concluding [...]
