AUMftHE 17 - LETTER TO A YOUNG ME.
Here the author goes BRAVELY AND SWEETLY INTO THE PAST. He sits down with his morning coffee at age 44 and writes a wise and loving letter to himself at 22 (knowing full well that himself at 22 wouldn't listen to what "some old guy" has to say!). We end this chapter (and the book) with the author at age 44 receiving a wise and loving letter from the future, from himself at age 60. The author at 44 actually DOES listen to some of that. Then the author and his wife sit down and tell you the wonderful things predicted in the book that have actually HAPPENED by LIVING THE BOOK since the book came out! And THAT'S ALL FOLKS! (But stay tuned for TWO BONUS EPISODES, MP3s of the full songs by the author used in excerpt in the intro and outro of each episode.)

AUMftHE 16.5 - Organization Building - New Uses For Old Tools.
We continue to present ways to "herd cats" in any organization from the smallest to the biggest, from the local to the global (and beyond!). We also talk about priorities, fighting only the fights worth fighting (which is different from only fighting fights we can win). Also how to AVOID fights, even when working with people who disagree.

AUMftHE 16 - Organization Building - New Uses For Old Tools.
"Group-dynamic games" are exercises where a "team building consultant" is hired to come into a company for a few days and lead employees through problem-solving exercises. The goal is to try and learn to work together more effectively. WE AREN'T GOING TO DO THAT. WE AREN'T PLAYING GAMES HERE. This is THE REAL DEAL. ORGANIZATION BUILDING is more about working with simple voluntary bylaws from the beginning. Using The Only Two Rules in Life with AA's 12 Traditions can be very effective for Org Building.

You could skip the theory part and go straight to THE PLAN, but you know by now how I work, so you know I think it's all equally important. Besides, I'll also make sure it's all FUN.

AUMftHE 12 - Stop Being a Victim
Professional victims make a career out of reenacting their grief. Over and over. They do it in real time, too: relive each tear, each torment, and then "see the light", all as a tiny three-act play. They live on "redemption in the third act." And the more horrific the first two acts are, the more talk-show engagements they'll get, and the more books they'll sell. Learn how to spot and avoid all types of victimhood (professional AND amateur), and learn how to delete any victimhood in yourself. Your life will be much happier and more productive.

AUMftHE 07 - The No-Contact Strategy
So, what do you do if enforcing reasonable boundaries with a hard-core serenity vampire simply DOES NOT WORK? Well, if it's someone you never want to see again, you block them for good. But if it's someone you love, who you MIGHT want back in your life at SOME point, but now just isn't the time, you can institute a NO-CONTACT STRATEGY. It's only for certain types of situations (which we explain), and most be done in a specific way in order to work (ditto). The NO-CONTACT STRATEGY can save a relationship or end it for good, but it can sometimes be the ONLY thing that will help.

Examples of different tactics when dealing with good people, weenies, Serenity Vampires, and people from hell.

We take you step by step, showing you what happened, what was done right, and what we would have done differently had we known what we know now. Each of the seven examples are in order of increasing hellishness, and you'll learn how to diffuse and avoid, including showing you which Cooper Code color level was involved.
