Feedback from SOT Students
this stuff is worth more than all the traditional education stuff combined
To focus on the process instead of just the result. I’ve previously taken a variety of work related courses on this subject, however none have matched the presentations given at SOT.
Mind-blowing and life changing. Having a daily lesson gives me a few minutes away from patterned behaviors to stop and think. SDNT CVSTOBVS QRH PRR. Each part of the code opens a new world of possibilities. These lessons learnt will be useful for the rest of my life.
cvs2bvs. simple effective pure genie in the bottle stuff
Yes. I can DO a switch! This is a large shift from the idea that creativity is a magical and mysterious process that awaits inspiration.
what a relief to be free!! if i cannot step aside from my cvs then I’m unable to think effectively on any issue. i am just churning out familiar ideas and beliefs.
SOT has taught me to think outside the square. A remarkable achievement.
I love the thought that cvs2bvs is universal so that I can apply it to any situation. There is always a better way to see a situation and the universal switch simply has to be used.
Again I’d like to thank Michael for his tireless contribution to this worthwhile cause and encourage him to continue despite the inevitable weight of the challenges involved.
i was humbled and exhilarated at the same time! curious sensations.
With the repetition of cvs2bvs I have come to realize that with any situation there’s a potential ‘always’ for a BVS.
The main insight for me is the Escape. Escaping from my current point of view, rather than indignantly defending it. A realization that something else might just be better rather than taking it personally that someone else may not agree with my current point of view.
I feel my confidence building day by day. Looking forward to the next set of lessons.
There have been many benefits in using CVS to BVS. The most significant has been the realization that I have more time than I realize to make a decision.
The main insight I’ve noticed is how little time I spend in defending a CVS, rather time is invested in thinking and continuing searching for Ever Better ideas and actions to produce ever better results.
I really like the idea of cvstobvs as a switch because it denotes, to me, ease of action. Its as simple as shifting ones thinking, changing the perspective and pow! You find yourself going from cvs to bvs. The concept of a switch that takes you to infinite universes of thinking is game-changing and has had a very powerful impact upon me.
The SDNT CVSTOBVS QRH PRR sequence, it’s a wonderful compact philosophy that I’m using 24/7! That’s the key for innovation and productivity.
NO matter what the situation there IS a better view of the situation. Imagine if you lived your whole life stuck inside a disempowering view of the current view of the situation and the day before you died you found you could create a better view of the situation and you could have created a fulfilling satisfying and peaceful life. Well I’VE GOT THE POWER. Thank you Michael.
dude! this place is so awesome! they describe thinking process in such fine fashion. learning from the quotes of all great people plus the cvs2bvs. dude u must check it out. it will widen your thinking outside the box.

I was involved in the automotive industry, first as an automobile repair technician (Mercedes-Benz), then moved onto the position of Shop Foreman (person to help other technicians with repair issues), and my final dealership position was the Service Department Manager. After 15 years at the Mercedes-Benz Dealership I was hired by the Mercedes-Benz USA organization in a few positions: teaching dealership technicians, helping technicians repair cars via telephone and actual visits, teaching sales personnel with regards to providing knowledge about the MB product, and finally moved into a position to approach dealers with challenges in their entire Customer Service Departments. Unfortunately, I was unable to continue my involvement due to brain damage caused by encephalitis.
I want you to know that I was introduced to the School of Thinking in my early years of the automotive industry and your influence was very valuable to me. I believe lessons I learned via internet played a big part in my life.
Even with my daily challenges due to brain damaged memory and physical issues, I still read and enjoy your information.
Have a great day!
Thanks Rob. Very encouraging to get your feedback. You have a great day, too.
