T-coach :)

”Take my advice, I don’t need it!”
It was a text on a T-shirt
a young rocker wore near by at a concert.

It is a truth well said, and an integrative one.
It communicates a lot due to the descriptive level.
It ex-poses the ”you&me” system (often read ”game”).
It is provocative and it challenges the frame of reference.
It is a situation of using the paradox tool in coaching session.
It is an iconic example how context helps in training us.
It proofs the value of attention - and it coachs!

Indeed, the metaphore is the most powerful communication tool –
it needs many words to say it differently.
(precisely 112!)
