I have a huge opportunity for you to learn more about the Theory of Constraints and the TOC Thinking Processes.
The Odyssey Program is coming up this July 18 to 25 in San Jose, CA. It's short notice, but it's a great deal. You can attend both the regular session (first 5 days) and the alumni session (last 3 days) which are normally $3500 together for only $1600 for both. And that's all inclusive (ALL meals, accomodations, materials are included).
Why? We are short on attendees due to dealing with Dr Goldratt's passing and we have not had time to market. We need to cover our costs. This price will NOT be available again!
This offer is limited to the first 10 people who respond and mention the Science of Business. I don't make a commission on this, I just really believe in this program and I promised Eli I would help to market TOC the last time I talked to him. The program is 100% run by volunteers and 100% non-profit. It's a must do for EVERYONE!
If you are interested in learning more about the TOC Thinking Processes and in critical thinking -- this is a great opportunity. This is a life opportunity. Read on for the details:
This program is aimed at helping attendees develop and apply critical thinking skills to discover the cause-effect patterns, generic conflicts and assumptions that limit success in the various aspects of their life (e.g. wealth, health and happiness) and discover how to practically break these conflicts in ways that do not have any major negatives and or major implementation obstacles.
Attendees can apply these TOC Thinking processes to any personal subject or circumstance (e.g. what to do with the rest of my life, how to live a full life, how to make an important decision).

- Get to know the Odyssey Facilitator - Dr. Alan Barnard (Freshman and Alumni program facilitator).
- Read all about this years venue – San Jose State University.
Starting points for this analysis can include:
1. How to set a life goal and discover which current assumptions can block you from achieving this life goal and how to overcome these obstacles in a systematic and logical way OR
2. How to make Important decision(s) you've been procrastinating on (such as "what to do with the rest of my life", "Why can't I sustainably quit a bad habit" ) and discovering what underlying conflict(s) blocks them from making these decisions and how to identify and challenge limiting assumptions in a holistic and logical way OR
3. Identifying stressful expectation gaps (gaps between what you really want /where you want to be vs. what you have now/where you are) from three different aspects of your life (e.g health, wealth and happiness) and discovering the common underlying conflict and limiting assumptions that block you from closing these gaps and how to overcome implementation obstacles in a holistic and logical way.
The 3 day Odyssey Alumni program (which follows immediately after the 5 day Freshman) is open to anyone that have previously attended a Odyssey Freshman program (including Odyssey Freshman class of 2011). In this program, Dr Alan Barnard will lead the group, following an exciting discovery process (developed by Dr Goldratt specficcally for the Alumni), to experience a real scientific breakthrough using the thinking processes and principles of the hard sciences's "scientific method" to make a real breakthrough in a topic that is important to both our professional and personal lives. Past Alumni topics included "How to find the essence of something we study/read", "How to really focus on what is important/not get distracted by unimportant stuff", "How to prepare properly when we want to sell a new idea/change".
I have personal experience of the impact of the tools taught at the Odyssey Freshman and Alumni programs and can testify the value it has brought to my life and to our organization.
