What did they receive? What did they take for themselves? What are they giving forward?  Give and receive time We met over coffee, during our lunch break, so this was more a conversation than an interview. She told  me the reason for making time to meet during such busy days – the proposal was coming

I was eager to learn the craft and start helping people work on their challenges. After only six months, I gave up. The first rule of the game was to keep your mouth shut and don’t offer solutions to the client. It was not my kind of business. What if I know what the client should do?

I kept stopping and starting. And then I realised. I didn’t have to explain what it is. We all already know. We just don’t know that we know. We all solution-­‐focus, we just don’t know that we do. You do also. You just don’t know it. You solution-focus whenever you say “Aha! How come I hadn’t thought of that earlier?”; every moment you can see things clearly and spot
