  • 3 day weekend or friday night where we go somewhere? Maybe on the island. First step would be to go check out AirBnB and see whats there?
  • Also should we have an agenda? Or a limit?
  • What’s the intention? Just a big ideas weekend? Get a Shaman in there?
  • It depends on weekend and the budget? it will help knowing what we want to do.
  • We would have to rent a car to go to the island though.
  • Maybe we can work from there too.
  • if you can get everyone to put in $50, you can get a castle in Spain!
  • Maybe you can get some crazy rich house in West Van
  • Each member can facilitate something they’re interested in.
  • Possibly we can have some facilitation within the core group and then grow from there in subsequent “workshops”
  • Should do a Decision Tree poll for this?
  • What dates should we do?

Judgement Exercise

  • Every one present is going to private write 5 immediate judgements they have about each other on a piece of paper. These will be read out by Kris anonymously to the whole group. This is an exercise to expose your immediate judgements about other people.
  • We can do this at the retreat as well.

Measure your discipline

  • Meditation tracking - The Calm app
  • Set more controllable goals - The Theory of Planned Behaviour
  • What influences your actual behaviour (The perception you have on the control of your behaviour)
  • Believe you can and you will perform it better than those who don’t believe they can
  • Do things you know you can do “Go to the gym for 30 minutes” instead of “Lose weight” - You control only one these directly
  • “My discipline is in line with how guilty I feel”
  • Kaizen - Do one minute of it
  • “I use golden ratio, fibonnaci – patterns found in nature”
  • Think of a metaphor, for writing
