Emotional Judo is a real thing - and the dot com is taken. So no point looking.

A map is the ultimate magic trick because if you have a piece of paper in front of you, you will know what is coming round the next corner.

It can't be any map - it must be a specific map - of the place where you are.

And that is the reason to use a consultant or a coach - because they have a map of where you are and what it likely to be round the next corner.

Captain Cook cropped up.

He was a British explorer and navigator who made the first contact with the east coast of Australia (apart from the people who were already there) and the first circumnavigation of New Zealand.

In three voyages, Cook sailed thousands of miles across largely uncharted areas of the globe. He mapped lands from New Zealand to Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean in greater detail and on a scale not previously achieved.

One of his maps is below.
