extraordinary is what I can say about last weekend’s Wisdom Course Downunder” run by my favourite personal development company; Landmark Worldwide. Within the 24 hours (starting Friday afternoon and ending Sunday Evening) , one of my big takeaways until the next weekend on October 11,12,13 is making my INITIATIVE for my life as “BEING GENERATIVE”.

From that, on Monday afternoon straight after the course, Reuben (aged 10) came to my door THRILLED to share his latest escapades at Brunswick Heads Public School, Northern New South Wales, (The current escapade is when he puts his Blue “Year of the Ox” World Peace by 2020 name badge on; see )

Reuben: “Charles I did it!”     

Charles: “What happened?”         

Reuben: “I WORE THE BADGE again today and also the ‘bum bag’ (‘fanny pack’)

(The small bag is filled with 40 colourful laminated “beer mat” size “World Peace by 2020” fliers)

Reuben: “BUT THIS TIME, I didn’t make a song and dance about them.”

Reuben: “I just walked around all day. “

Reuben: “ and no one bullied me!”

Reuben: “Then kids would then come up to me and ask what was in the bag?”

Reuben: “I would take a deep breath ( turn, saying to myself “Bold and Brave”)

Reuben: “and say.......”

Reuben: “These are World Peace by 2020 badges, which colour do you want?

Reuben (PROUDLY): “I got rid of them all!”

MY INSIGHT:I saw from that moment that I had been “BEING GENERATIVE” with Reuben, BEFORE Monday and , as he was sharing, I observed that perhaps it was “THE LISTENING I PROVIDE “ which gives a clearing for GENERATIVE CONVERSATIONS that Produce and Create.
