Make some space
Get oriented & start finding better ways forward
Start with People and go clockwise from Observations (POPIE), or however moves you forward.
Really explore each space to find new possibilities: add, question, and totally change things. What happens?
Please, please share if you can—it helps so many others!
Try one of the guides (Pocket Compass card, videos) linked at the right. All go in that clockwise order, helping you get the feel of exploring each space deeply by inviting you to:
Push yourself with the grey compass points.
E.g., for the lower left, Have I really seen details in new ways yet?
Ask the questions again and again. Explore different what, when, why, how.
E.g. What's happening? Why? Why? Why? What else is happening?
Tap into another of your or others' Ten+ Tools (below).
E.g. What if I look, listen, or feel? Use a picture, object, or motion? See what my heart or gut says? Consider what others do, think, feel?
Add question marks to hunches, and keep going to test them.
E.g. I *think* this is happening, so I'll put it here with a question mark for now.
Use the other spaces.
E.g. What observations are behind the ideas I have? What happened from experiments I tried before?
Use all your resources
We always have 10 tools in and around us. The guides above, and all deeper methods I've found, basically invite you to use one or more of these to go further in any Compass direction you're exploring.
