People often ask about tips to putting The Power of TED* into practice on a daily basis.  In response, I developed the 7 Daily Practices. These seven relatively simple – though not always easy – daily disciplines will increase your capacity to live as a Creator and cultivate TED* roles and relationships.

2.      Take a time-out every 2 hours

One of the most important ways of creating the new neuropathways mentioned in a previous post is to call yourself back to awareness and attention on a regular basis.  This helps prevent sliding back into old, patterned, and default ways of thinking and reacting.

Create a way to call “time out!” every two hours by setting an alarm on a watch, clock, or computer. Review the previous two hours by reflecting on the following questions:

—  Which Orientation (Victim or Creator) have you been operating from?

—  Have you been in any of the Dreaded Drama Triangle (DDT) roles of Victim, Persecutor or Rescuer?

—  If you are in any of the DDT roles, how can you make the shift to the antidote roles of Creator, Challenger or Coach in TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic)?

 Try this process for a minimum of seven straight days and you will be amazed at how your awareness grows.  You will be developing those new neuropathways!
