Frequently Asked Questions about the Human Game
What is the Human Game?
The Human Game is a way to turn your life into a game where the information in your unique birth chart can help you to achieve your goals, explore your potential, and experience happiness.
Imagine that your life is a city. The City of Your Life is divided into twelve neighborhoods, and each neighborhood is zoned for a different kind of activity. The twelve neighborhoods correspond to the twelve houses in the birth chart. When you develop a neighborhood, you expand the range of experience you can have in that part of your life. Upgraded neighborhoods create greater happiness.
The seven personal planets in the chart are construction vehicles. You operate the planet-vehicles to gather raw materials from the neighborhoods, convert those materials into resources, and then use those resources to upgrade and maintain the structures in the neighborhoods.
The configuration of your Human Game playing field is unique to you because it’s based on the date, time, and location of your birth. Your birth chart determines which planet-vehicles are in charge of which neighborhoods, what kind of fuel each vehicle requires, and where they generate that fuel.
How do you play the Human Game?
Playing the Human Game is simple. You will have a specific strategy plan for each goal, and that strategy plan will require that you generate fuel and generate resources to support that goal. You start by taking a reading of the current fuel or resource level. Then, you choose an activity from your daily life and connect that activity to the Human Game with attention, action, and awareness. After you finish the activity, you take 2 to 3 minutes to review the story of the activity and collect the resources you generated. Finally, you take another reading of the fuel or resource level and compare the two readings to get your score.
You will learn how to do all of this in your first Human Game coaching session.
This may not sound exciting, but the instructions of a game never are. You only experience the fun of a game when you play it. And once you discover how easy it is to create the energy and enthusiasm you need to pursue your goals, you’ll be hooked.
What makes the Human Game different from other coaching programs?
Traditional coaching programs focus exclusively on your external goal. You define a goal that is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Timely (S.M.A.R.T.) and identify the specific steps needed to reach that goal. The problem is following those steps.
Traditional coaching views this as a motivational problem and uses a range of different tools to hold you accountable and force you to confront your resistance and work towards your goal. This approach is occasionally successful, but it’s definitely the hard way.
Motivation is the wrong way to view these challenges. As long as your goal is S.M.A.R.T. and you believe that achieving the goal will make you happy, you have all of the motivation you need to pursue the goal. If you’re not taking action towards it, you don’t lack motivation; you lack fuel.
In the Human Game model, whenever you take any action, you operate one of the seven planet-vehicles, and vehicles require fuel to operate. You generally have enough fuel to take care of your current activities with a planet-vehicle, but taking on a new goal requires additional fuel.
Every action you take consumes fuel, but some actions also generate fuel. Once you’ve identified a goal in the Human Game, your first objective is to learn to generate fuel for that goal. You may need to spend time on activities that have nothing to do with your external goal to generate enough fuel to begin to work towards your external goal.
Another key limitation of traditional coaching is staying motivated while you pursue bigger, long-term goals. We need to accomplish meaningful tasks to stay connected to a goal. Meaningful tasks are tasks that we believe directly contribute to the goal, are measurable, and give a feeling of accomplishment when we complete them. When you focus on an external goal, there’s a limit to how much time you can spend each day on meaningful tasks.
When you work with the Human Game model, you can turn virtually everything you do during the day into a meaningful task that contributes towards your goal. You stay connected to your goal and feel like you’re making progress because you’re tracking both external and internal accomplishments.
How is coaching different from counseling or therapy?
The Human Game is a coaching model, and it’s important to understand the difference between therapy, counseling, and coaching. The goal of therapy, which is provided by a qualified medical professional, is to address mental health concerns. The goal of counseling is to help you to understand your unconscious motivations. The goal of coaching is to help you to realize your potential and improve your life. Put another way, therapy tries to convince you that you are not a chicken; counseling explores why you think you’re a chicken; and coaching teaches you 101 ways to cook eggs.
Counseling and coaching are not substitutes for therapy. But having a stable foundation of mental health doesn’t mean that you’re living your best life or experiencing true happiness. Counseling and coaching are both designed to improve your quality of life, but they have different approaches.
In general, counseling is offered by a licensed professional with an advanced degree and formal training in one or more schools of psychology or sociology. The relationship between a counselor and a client is face-to-face, and it’s an unequal partnership because the structure of the relationship puts the counselor in the position of power. Counseling tends to be open-ended and ongoing without a fixed objective. A counselor provides advice and even suggests answers to a client’s questions or concerns. Many counseling approaches explore your story and try to make you feel better about it, but few address the story itself.
Professional coaches have also received extensive training, and use many of the same listening and cognitive skills employed by counselors. The relationship between a coach and a client is side-by-side, with you both facing the same direction. It’s an equal partnership because a coach is more concerned with helping you to achieve your goals than with getting you to choose different goals. This means that coaching is task-focused with a clear objective, and when you reach that objective, you’re done. Coaches don’t give advice or suggest answers; instead they ask questions that help you to find your own answers. And when you work with a Human Game coach to question your story, you learn how to change your story, elevate the truth quotient, and reclaim your power.
What is a Human Game coaching session?
A Human Game coaching session is a 75 to 90-minute consultation that will help you to identify and refine an external goal, and then connect that goal to your personal Human Game playing field.
The first part of the initial coaching session may be familiar to you if you’ve ever worked with a coach before. You will begin with a goal, and then we will explore that goal to make it S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Timely). We’ll identify what has to change in your life to accommodate that goal, explore potential obstacles and solutions, necessary resources, and finally create a meaningful task list for the goal itself. And at this point, we’re done with the external goal.
Now, we connect that external goal to your unique Human Game playing field (based on your unique birth chart) and explore what is really required to achieve that goal.
The first and most important consideration is how you generate fuel to be able to pursue the goal. You will learn how to measure your fuel level for the goal, and explore the components of the AAA Plan (Attention, Action, Awareness) that you will apply to routine daily activities in your life so that those activities can generate fuel and help you to achieve your goal.
Finally, you will learn how the modality of this goal (also based on your birth chart) determines how you approach the goal, how you handle fuel, what your biggest challenges are, and the best strategy for success.
If your goal has a Cardinal modality, you approach it like an archer. You have one arrow and one chance to hit the target. If you miss the target, you have to start over again with a new arrow.
If your goal has a Fixed modality, you view it as an evolutionary process. You have faith that you’ll achieve the goal eventually, but you expect it will be a slow, lengthy, methodical process to get there.
If your goal has a Mutable modality, you focus on the individual tasks associated with the goal rather than on the big picture. This gives you the feeling that you are moving forward but in fact, you may be running in circles.
At the end of the session, you will receive a detailed worksheet that addresses everything covered in the coaching session including the external goal and your Fuel AAA Plan, a set of Fuel AAA Plan journal pages, and a Human Game Strategy Guide.
How many coaching sessions will I need to achieve a goal?
While the Human Game coaching program gives you unique, personal tools and strategies to help you to achieve your goals, it does not guarantee that you will achieve a particular goal. With that in mind, there are three levels of the Human Game that you will need to learn to play to take advantage of all of the strategies. Level 1 is fuel generation; Level 2 is neighborhood upgrades; and Level 3 is driving the planet-vehicle.
If you’re new to the Human Game, you will need to learn how to play each level of the Human Game, and that will require three coaching sessions. Once you understand how to play the Human Game on all three levels, new goals can usually be addressed in a single session.
That being said, you will experience significant progress after only a single Human Game coaching session. Just learning how to generate fuel so you can begin to work towards your goal is powerful and transformative. After spending a week or two playing Level 1 of the Human Game, you will be eager to go deeper and explore the next level.
Do I need to know my birth time to play the Human Game?
Yes, an accurate time of birth is a requirement for the Human Game. The most critical elements of your unique Human Game playing field are determined by the time of birth.
