Default Becoming a "good Svengali"...!

Hi Gordon,

Thanks, some great posts!

I agree that controlling OTHER people's time is extremely powerful... And you've pointed the way towards some examples and ways to do so...

It makes it sound like a person can become a sort of "Svengali"... (Without the "sinister" part... a "good" Svengali!)

On interruptions... Not all interruptions are bad. Some are very welcome...

It's great to be a "welcome" interruption... Which, I think, is almost always possible, especially if you are bringing a win/win/win type of offer...

You need the right kind of "opening" though! (I guess the right direction is... sitmulus/response... I'm gonna re-listen to your audios on that!)

By the way, I'd love to see the Group Pictogrigm of Persuasion (POP)!

Best wishes,

The person you want to control in the future has no idea you exist.

My Flower Power intersection was THEIR front porch. My knock was the Interruption. My offer was rejected. My magic words began. I made them do what I wanted.

Before I started knocking on doors, Mr. Green (my Mr. Myogi) knew I was going to be doing something in the very near future...controlling someone who wasn't even aware of a favorable conclusion for us both.

Your INTERSECTION could be an email. Or an introduction. Or some preselling, or warming up, such as sending them something before you contact them.

All of this to set the stage, to have control of the INTERSECTION and then when you or your words meet with your target, a predictable result can take place.
