Mike, your ideas are great! I have used a technique with my coaching clients that I call “An Interview from the Future” and it works very much like this, but written down. But in reading how you do this, it stimulated several ideas. 1. I can do this for myself on sticky projects like yours. 2. I can actually utilize this as a coaching device when people are stuck. I can interview them as if they had already accomplished their goal. This would be easier for many people rather than ‘talking to themselves,’ which can feel somewhat embarrassing. I am stoked about trying this out. In fact, I’m going to try this with most of my current clients.
