I love my work, as I meet so many people, and together we go on a journey of discovery of how we as humans interact with and communicate with the world around us, and how we interact with ourselves. Yes interact with ourselves, with our inner mind and our conscious mind.

As we take the journey, changes happen, they have to, as every experience we encounter will have influence upon the way we understand the world, how we interpret what is happening to us, meeting new people, seeing new sights, hearing news sounds, tasting new tastes.

For some it will be a new journey, like taking an overnight bus trip to far of lands, taking a cruise ship across the oceans, or catching a flight to different countries and cultures.

Some will come across experiences that will amaze them, some will come across experiences that will shock them. It is these experiences that enrich our lives, they give us the learning to be able to cope with our future life, to see things in perspective about our previous life.

I love taking this journey with the participants, as it is like helping someone to cross a road, we also have to cross the road with them.

For me the journey we will take is a well trodden one, I have done it so many times, and it is a joyous journey, one that I also enjoy finishing, because I know I will feel good at the end.

Just like my flight to Istanbul on Friday, the journey may be difficult. There will be procedures I will have to go through, booking-in, security, there may be turbulence in the flight, the food may not be to my liking, and I do not know who or what will be waiting for me at Istanbul Antaturk airport.

One thing is for certain, the clock will continue to tick, time will not stop. The time in Turkey as I write this blog may be 12:00 mid day, people may be eating their lunch, but here in London it is only 10:00 in the morning, I have only just had breakfast.

Time as we perceive it, is only relative to our own place in space. We must learn to enjoy what we have now, for do we know what is at the end of our journey?

Let us plan for a good outcome on our journey together.

Business Matters TV program in Sri Lanka

Published by:

In 2003 I travelled to Columbo in Sri Lankato give courses in NLP, PhotoReading, Mind Maps, and was asked to take part in a TV program called Business Matters, hosted Parakrama Dissanayake.

The podcast TV progam lasts about ten minutes and will take a little time to download depending on internet speed. Enjoy.

For those wishing to take part in future courses in Sri Lanka, please visit the web site or contact Maxwell de Silva or Hemantha Wickremasinghe on SRI LANKA 011 2345257.

Memory and Mind Maps

Published by:

In a very hot Istanbul, it seems that the air conditioners cannot cope, we finish another great course.

This is a corporate course for Global Communications, part of the Turkcell mobile phone company, the largest in Turkey.   

                                                      Mind Maps and Memory, with lots of laughter and fun.

The participants helped me decide whether to have a fast-food meal or not, successfully recorded a lecture, helped me with my weekly shopping, and more all on mind maps.

They successfully remembered after being distracted for a number of hours, even from the previous day, sixty (60) random words, given to them only once, the names of fifteen people the day after initially learning them, telephone numbers, and facts, facts, and more facts.

I know that the information from the training will be implemented company wide, as other companies I have trained have done, HSBC bank, Shanghai Airlines, and world wide companies, Boeing Aircraft Corporation, Axia Insurance all saving millions of dollars, and saving time vast amounts of time.

Learning can be productive and such fun.
