These are things to do in Possibility Labs that build matrix and provide a different kind of necessary food from doing only personal process work. Doing too many personal processes in PLab can be deadly for PLab, because then people think they already know what will happen in a PLab when in fact, when I (Clinton Callahan) lead a PLab or TLab, I don't even know what is going to happen next. Adding a wide variety of additional experiences keeps the PLabs alive and evolving.

Many of the following activities require that you purchase or prepare things beforehand.

If you may think you must be an expert at the thing before you deliver that to your people, this is not true. You just need to be committed to serve your people. Often times, the best way to learn something is to teach it. Have Fun!

  42. Develop and deploy each person's "shtick." Shtick is a source of authentic humor (as opposed to unconscious Gremlin humor which is not appropriate in Training spaces). If you do not have your shtick then the nonlinear possibilities created through humor are missing. Your shtick is your personal style of humor and nonlinear quirks. Every Trainer needs to develop and deliver their unique personal shtick until it can fill up the whole space and take the space in nonlinear directions. Using your shtick is often a conscious use of your Gremlin. You already know that my personal shtick includes burping, farting, side-talking with Marion, being overwhelmed with surprise when big Gremlins or big Boxes show up, making exagerated or funny faces, Pirate jokes, eating gigantic plates of chocolate during Small Talk Cafés, watching action movies late at night, group hugs, and so on. Possibility Labs need your humor. Participants need do see your schtick. Participants need to fall in love with your playful enthusiasm for this work and for the simplicity of co-creating their bright future. PLabs are not just about battling people's Box and Gremlin to death.
  43. And so on...
