Extending that thought a little further: even if, to this point, you the
Reader have been working alone, with only tape recorder for
listening and company, you may give some thought to involving
other individuals, creating joint experiences together, and working
together afterwards to actualize some of the wealth potential of the
On the one hand you may have had your fill of waiting for other people's actions and probably desire strongly to move ahead on your own. On the other hand, if you can bring other people with you, you are much stronger, and far likelier to generate those answers, solutions, ideas, innovations, inventions, new products and services which are worth pursuingand far stronger for pursuing them into payoff.
Perhaps your main value to each other as a group, above and beyond the above strengths, can be to remind each other to use one or another form of process for creative problem-solving when encountering some issue or some difficulty en route to your goal.

But you may need to build in some scheduled extra stimulus or self-reward, for it's far more fun with another person or persons than it is with just a tape recorder.

For debriefing, write in as much detail as you can, as quickly as you can.Obviously, these are not mutually exclusive choices. Should you wish to, you can try all options at different times. However, your strongest chances of initial success are with option 3 above. And, of course, there is the fourth choice, the choice most of those reading this are likely to follow:
4. Working alone, with one tape recorder to receive your described experiences. To do this, first read through the above script several times to get the gist of it in mind. Then, take yourself through the following simpler, shorter version of Beachhead:
