Lateral Action Introductory Series Starts Today

Marla, Jack and Lou

Yes, we are having text as well as video on Lateral Action. Today I begin an introductory series of posts that explain the background to the videos about Lou, Jack and Marla and outline the future direction of he site.

The first post is called Innovate or Die: Why Creativity Is Economic Priority Number One.

The series will run for the next two weeks. I won’t be blogging about the whole series on Wishful Thinking so if you want to know:

  • why Lou is screwed
  • the problem with creative thinking
  • how focusing on productivity can be unproductive
  • why you’re an entrepreneur (whether you like it or not)
  • how to be creative and effective instead of just ‘busy’
  • the secrets of Marla‘s success

Then make sure you grab the Lateral Action RSS feed or sign up for updates via e-mail (link on the home page).


  1. Mark,

    I haven’t been to your blog in a while, and now that I’m back, I realize how much I’ve missed it! You’ve had some great things going on here!

    I also watched a few of the Lateral Action videos and loved them, what an ingenious idea, congratulations! I am trying to resist signing up for the updates, but I must find out why Lou’s screwed! haha


  2. Thanks Claudine, the feedback is much appreciated.

    As for signing up for updates — go on, you know you want to. 🙂
