Here’s an idea…

Wouldn’t it be great if someone could invent a microwave bed? A bed that lets us have 8 hours sleep in just 2 minutes? We’re all busy people and often it’s too difficult to get the full 8 hours we really need. Wouldn’t it be great if we could lie down, shut our eyes for 2 minutes and feel like we’ve had the full 8 hours!?

Wishful thinking?

Ok. Here’s another idea…

Wouldn’t it be great if we could watch the Great British Bake Off and suddenly be Master Bakers? We could simply sit down for one hour, watch the contestants put all the ingredients together, carefully watch their methods, see what they do right and wrong and then go ahead and simply replicate ourselves in our own kitchens.

More wishful thinking?

Last one. A combination of the two…

Wouldn’t it be great if we could have a behavioural change programme over a 1-hour lunch break? We’re all busy people and find it difficult to commit all the time we really need and we know ‘Millennials’ have a supposed limited attention span. We could simply sit our people down for one hour, hear the tutor tell us all the theory, watch them give an example, with a few good jokes thrown in, then see the new behaviours roll out across our firm like a virus.


We’ve yet to see a microwave bed, or a microwave being used on ‘Bake Off’. We don’t expect to see effective “Microwave Behavioural Training’ any time soon either.
