Jedi Mind Tricks

April 16th, 2017 · Comments

Are you a Star Wars fan? The new trailer is out for the 2017 movie, and it's a good time to think about Jedi mind tricks. Is there a process that you could use in real life to get other people to do stuff with less resistance and better results?

Learn how the Jedi:

  • develop a mindful presence that allows them to read their environment through what is changing in themselves
  • connect their big picture "what I want my life to mean" to their small, defined asks
  • offer their full attention to the connection they need to make to get results
  • describe what they want in sensory tangible detail

If you're not getting results you like when you ask other people to do stuff, listen and then check your process against this process. If you don't have the power to make people do things and you can't argue them into doing them, it's time for a different approach.
