Dear colleagues,

Are you interested in fresh thinking regarding OST?
Are you interested in making it better?

I recently participated in the WOSonOS planning meeting and ever since I’ve been wondering: 
What could make me eager to go to Iceland?

Right now, I am not eager. Yet. 

I have already been to three WOSonOS (2003 in Svenmark, 2005 in Canada, 2010 in Berlin) and several OSonOS. 
I don’t need another OST just to share some practices, experiences, stories.
Just to see old friends (while I love meeting old friends!). Just to make new friends (while I love making new friends!).

But none of this evokes the desire to go to Iceland for WOSonOS from me.
How about you? 

So I’ve been contemplating: 
What would I need to happen there, so that I create the money and time to go? 
What would need to have evolved, so that afterwards I will celebrate having been there?

Today I listened to a podcast by Seth Godin, who I appreciate for his honest and brilliant approach to marketing.
Regarding the grandest possible vision for OST I invite you to listen to 1 minute:

	Stopp what is playing automatically 
	Scroll down to the episodes and start „The Grand Opening"
	Listen to 10:57 - 11:58

Please take 1,5 minutes, listen first, than continue reading. Thank you.


So referring to what he shared and applying it to OST:

Can OST actually be made better?
I know there is a strong perspective of every change = making it worse.
I once thought that way. Not anymore.

What if there actually were many things to make it better? 
Be it in the format, the marketing, how it is integrated into business…

So that we relax and trust that… slowly and naturally… some day soon… everyone is going to know about it?
And what could this year's WOSonOS have to do with it?

Just wondering…

Any thoughts, feelings, further questions?

PS - some of you may remember me:
I am located in Germany, back on this list after many years of absence. I was pretty active in this community starting in 2003… Left several years ago. 
One: I wasn’t learning as intensely as before and had a sense that the space for fresh thinking was closing. 
Two: Other topics captured my passion, including the Genuine Contact approach - which integrates OST and made it better ;-) - so I believe...

With curiosity to explore together,
