How to Run Your Own Life, many consider the most useful do-it-yourself book ever written; by one of America's foremost executive coaches. The author, Jut Meininger was listed by "Businessweek" as a top TA guru in the US.



Many times throughout history, the "father" of an idea that grows to be a universal house-hold concept shares that idea early on with his friends and colleagues. As that group discusses the subject among themselves, their input serves to enrich and clarify the first idea. Then, as members of the original group begin to mentor and train others in that concept, those new colleagues will likewise enrich the concept and further clarify the ideas for the next generation.


Building on a pure idea like that results in simplifying, explaining, and clarifying the idea. However, interested parties who don't have the privilege of the original concept, but rather latch on to a particular facet of it and attempt to build from that incomplete concept tend to confuse the original idea as well as complicate and muddy their own product.


Eric Berne had an idea that changed the way the world thought. From Games People Play, to Redecision Therapy, to Applied TA, to Human Interaction Analysis the family tree is intact, each generation making the original idea more understandable and usable for the audience for which it was meant.


This work is not nearly finished. There are others out there that can take this work even further. Are you that person? The only way this pure strain of Berne-influenced TA can be carried on is if the last in line teach those who will be taking over when they are no longer available. Are you that person?


No background in the subject is necessary. The concept can be easily taught from the beginning. Contact if you feel you want to contribute. [see more]
