I found this article on the web and it seemed to me to be an interesting one that relates directly to survivology, more specifically to communicating during a stressful situation. This technique as described in the article is a time proven one that you may recognize. Also notice that the author discovered how effective it was by "reflecting back" on the past season. Remember that reflection is how we make sense of all the day to day frustrations that we encounter. Read the article and try it out you will be surprised how well it works. It is simple human psychology. Do you remember your drill instructors saying "EYEBALLS" and answering "OPEN SIR" It is the same thing for the same reason. Another one that I often use is "FOCUS" although it is more to maintain attention than to gain attention. ENJOY!
