1. A quote I’m resonating with this week
This one comes from co-author of the seminal book, The Third Wave, Alvin Toffler (he’s quoted in this week’s ‘glimpse of the future’ article):
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, relearn and unlearn.”
2. An interview with someone who’s touched my life deeply
Jan Chipman is one of the most experienced teachers of the principles as discovered and taught by Sydney Banks. Her work ranges from corporate consulting through to pioneering work with inmates in jails. And one of the interesting things about Jan is that she’s had a profound impact on me personally in the domain of relationships. I loved doing this interview with her, so I hope you enjoy it! https://www.jamiesmart.com/rmp20-jan-chipman-the-source-of-happiness/

4. A handy checklist for doing Intensives
In my Facebook group this week, I shared a checklist for coaches and therapists who want to do multi-day 1:1 coaching intensives with high-value clients. Basically, lots of coaches, therapists and transformation professionals want to offer and deliver multi-day “intensives” or breakthrough sessions, but don’t know exactly what it involves. You can find out how you can start doing intensives yourself with this free “7-Point Checklist for Doing Multi-day Intensives”. Visit the post here on Facebook and type “ME” into the comments below it and I’ll send you your checklist!

5. This week’s 3 minute miracle
Billy Taylor’s gospel anthem, “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free” was famously sung by Nina Simone. But it was also used by the BBC’s Film show which was hosted by the ever-wonderful Barry Norman. I love movies, and when I arrived in the UK in 1986, Norman’s show was my *only* credible source of up to the minute film guidance. Barry Norman died last week at the age of 83. Thanks for all the gems I wouldn’t have seen if you hadn’t given me a heads-up, Baz. Here’s a minute of that tune, one more time… https://youtu.be/k4lRmG_UXy8
That’s it for this week!
Thanks and big love,
PS By the way, one of the ways I love to wake people up to who they really are is by creating powerful learning experiences, and I was wondering… would you like to ‘sit in’ / observe / ‘be a fly on the wall’ during one of my 3-day 1:1 Intensives with a client? Here’s what I’m thinking: Ever since I wrote in RESULTS about how Ankush Jain sat in and observed while I did a 3-day 1:1 Intensive with a client, I’ve had lots of people come to me and ask how they can do the same. The motivation is clear: while lots of coaches love the idea of offering high-value, multi-day intensives, very few coaches actually have a reference experience for them: they haven’t experienced what a multi-day intensive looks like, sounds like and feels like. Basically, it can be tough to do something when you don’t have any kind of reference for it. So I’ve been giving it a lot of thought, and I’ve come up with a way for you to sit in while I do a 3-day 1:1 Intensive with a paying client, and then de-brief with me between the sessions. Would you like to see/hear more? If yes, email Nikki at email@example.com and change the subject line to INTENSIVE
