How are the games played via conference call and over the Internet?

Clarify is played over four days via email and on an internet game platform; it concludes with a conference call. The JumpStart Game and the Game of Games also incorporates goal-related activities that take place in the time between weekly conference calls.





I don’t get all this business about games. Why don’t I just take a workshop or a how-to course as a means to help me realize my goals?

Workshops and how-to courses can be excellent vehicles for helping you realize goals. However, playing a structured “serious” game — which incorporate elements of simulations, role plays and game-like activities — offers several advantages over conventional workshops. Although there is no substitute for effort in the process of achievement, incorporating the spirit of play allows us to transmute effort into effortlessness. When we play a game well, we enter into a super conscious zone in which can surpass our conscious perception of what’s possible for us to achieve.





I don’t get it? How will focusing on other’s goals help me achieve my goal? Won’t I just be wasting time?

If you are like the rest of us, you might find that being in the midst of a community of achievers might push you to achieve what you haven’t achieved before.
