14. writing is critical IMHO

Here's what I have my babies do, buy a regular 8x11 spiral notebook, write on the first pave something like "this is NMDD2's inventory, if you read it I'll have to have my sponsor hurt you!

Then turn the page so you have the two pages opened up. Since the BB tells us we list our resentments etc, the only way I know to list is down, so you write a name, skip a line, write a name, skip a line etc. When you have listed EVERYBODY, only then do you go to column two. So on the right hand side of that list, make a quick note ( literally! 20 words or less) of "what happened", again going down the list, one at a time.

For a brand new person, that's all they write, they bring that to me and on that facing page we go down the list together again, but we ONLY use the 5 choices in the BB from page 65, ambition, relationship etc noting what was effected. Then we go to page 67 and note in the middle if the page which of those choices were involved? Selfish, dishonest etc.

Finally, on the right side, we write "what should I have done instead"

With a person which knows the process they do the first 4 columns alone, then we discuss the 5th column as the 5th step together.

I have found that process gives us a great deal of information, not only on our 8 & 9 steps, but our 6&7 too.

If you've read all this let me say WOW well done! And I hope it helped
