The one-sentence DMP was a really useful exercise. To get the full picture I had to raid my Press Release for additional inspiration and the process of looking forward at what I set out to achieve (DMP) and projecting forward to look back at what I had achieved (Press Release) introduced a whole new perspective. My PPNs now make sense!
Then on the Sunday webinar I spent 50 minutes repeating the one-sentence DMP in front of a mirror. Now I didn’t burst into song and dance like some but I did experiment with the delivery. I imagined it as an introduction to my on-stage presentation when I get invited by the company to tell the world how it all started and how I did it. So my next task is to write my whole presentation and rehearse it as I do my Press Release.
Of course my one-sentence DMP is memorised (how could it not be after 50 minutes!) and I use it as one of my affirmations utilising the brain gym techniques when I am out walking. All the affirmations have a natural rhythm that synchronise easily with walking pace and if necessary can alternate starting on the left or right foot to vary the input. The whole town now thinks I am crazy with the advantage that I get a lot of pavement space to myself!
And finally, “The Guy in the Glass” makes a nice rap but that stays strictly in the bathroom mirror between me and “The Guy”. I don’t know who laughs a whom the most.
