Two Minute Video Blogs

by mihai on October 6, 2012

My plan is to speak to the camera for 2-3 minutes, upload it and link it here.
No editing, not striving for perfection by any mean.  Just ship it like Seth.

TPG Intro

by mihai on April 3, 2012

Next Boulder Intro:  Thu April 5th, 5:30-6:45pm at the Integral Center.  RSVP on Facebook.


We had the first Intro last week, on extremely short notice. Fourteen of us showed up and felt the power of co-working.  Strong positive reviews for the value of the intro itself, and 4-5 people actually decided to take the entire program!

These days, I do 95% of my work in Actions: 25-minute work blocks, which help me stay focused and feel good about work.

In just over one hour, you’ll

  • (a) learn how to use the Action tool
  • (b) have the experience of doing an Action yourself
  • (c) feel ready for TPG co-working mornings at the Integral Center
  • (d) learn about my 5-week TPG: Foundation training program

Please bring whatever you need (laptop, notepad, iPad) to do 25 minutes of work. The content of this work block doesn’t matter; it can be something you already need to spend time on, or I will give you a topic.

We will start and end everything exactly on time.
Here’s the schedule:

5:15-5:30 Arrive (middle room) and socialize.
5:30-5:40 Intro to The Action Game
5:40-6:05 Everyone does an Action together
6:05-6:10 We all take a break together
6:10-6:45 Time for follow up questions, benefits of The Action Game, invitations to TPG: Foundation


Six Words

January 2, 2012

Reading SMITH Magazine’s Six-Word Memoir project, I was hooked.  Like a haiku, the restriction of form inspires my creativity.  I wrote my own two memoirs, “Found out life is a dance” and “Ivy League computer scientist, still recovering,” but also started using the six-word structure for other things. Most notably, at the end of 2010 […]

MLF Nov 2011

December 9, 2011

I used to love making mixes, and sharing them with friends.  Why not start again? Among other things, this inspires me to seek and process/rate new music. Here is my Nov-2011 mix, with an occasional personal note of what a song means to me…   Faboloso (Fabolous) A minute-and-a-half lively hip-hop/R&B song to kick off […]

NWD 3, Day 3

November 30, 2011

I would estimate I spent four hours today on my NWD commitments.  The impact is, I’m extremely clear about my purpose and why I’m doing it.  I’m also clear about who’s on my support team, what that means, and I’ve already had several clean-up conversations. Why I realize now that I’ve never known why I’m […]

T-group Description

November 28, 2011

Come play! The spirit of the game: get curious about the emotional impact you have on others and vice versa, minimizing distractions like opinions, stories, past tense and defensiveness. We’ve been doing a lot of these lately, but invite only. This is the first time I’m sending out a wider invite, because it’s awesome and […]

Twenty things I learned at ACL

November 7, 2011

I can authentically care for a wide range of people, including those I initially feel averse to. Thanks, Bill and Dan! If I bring my attraction to a woman while in touch with my divine masculine power, whatever happens, she will NOT go into mommy energy (as she will if I’m too in touch with […]

Laying Down My Sword And Shield

November 4, 2011

I recently had, for the second time in my life, an intense experience in choosing to not be righteous.  I can’t know cause and effect, but my life sure feels different a few days later. This blog is where I come to examine (and communicate) the insights I reach…  many of which probably can’t be […]
