Four frogs are sitting on a log.
One decides to jump into the water.
How many frogs are sitting on the log?
Because deciding to jump is not the same as jumping.
The Churning includes tools and exercises at every step of the way. This means you not only get to understand the messages of the book but also apply them to find out what they mean to you.
Chapters 1-3 of inner leadership provide tools for identifying your options: what the water’s like in different directions around the log.
Chapter 4 is about choosing the outcome that is best for you: deciding whether to jump, and where to.
Then Chapters 5-7 are about creating the inspiration needed to take others with you, so that when you come to jump, you can be sure that no frogs will be left sitting on the log.
Every chapter of The Churning contains tools, frameworks, and exercises. Because it is only when you take the action that you also take the decision.
(You can see the same principle in action in Waiting for Godot.)
