Hey Ranjeeth.
I suggest we apply the 4hww principles to the meeting - that will teach people by doing.
I suggest we do this:
> Free coffee for those who come before 11:45.
> Meet starts at 12:
> You do a quick hello and outline of meeting
> hour1 - troubleshoot round: 4 minutes each - think about your stuck point(s) on your walk to the meeting be willing to share them - 1 action step to take in 1 day
> 10 minute break
> hour2 - concept round:  concept in the book is presented and we each take 4 minutes to discuss it and how to apply it in our efforts: 1 action step to take after the meeting.
meeting done in 2 hours ...

Homework assignments by 2/16/08:
-- INDIVIDUAL: Complete our one or two personal actions
-- Research future venues for event, considering price, location, consistency of availability.
-- Contribute general/shared resources for the group

Comfort challenge by 2/16/08:
-- Wear a rude t-shirt or hat for one full day while interacting normally with people (with mildly sexist, offensive, foul language and/or crude images). You can find a bunch on Canal Street.

FHWW theme for 2/16/08:
-- Being an expert-- find out what in our life we can call ourselves a certified expert in (if not best in the world at). We all have something we're uniquely best in the world at.

NOTE: Spending time on the above assignments are never a requirement for attending. No one will follow up. They are for ourselves, but regardless they give us a clear signal to the level of our intent.

Everyone's feedback has been very helpful for us all, once again.

Till Febuary 16th.
