Tight boundaries are time boundaries too

Playing with tight boundaries helps with overwhelm. “I’m just going to do this one thing, that’s it.”

This works with time boundaries too. “I’m just going to give this 6 minutes/30 minutes/3 seconds/fill in your own blank of my time, that’s it, no more.”

And you can gather excitement by shortening the time boundary. If a team looks like they’ll be easily successful in a team building activity, I’ll tell them I’m reducing their time. There’s a jolt of energy. People tune into the end of televised games. That’s when it matters most – it’s either most exciting then or the outcome is clearly decided.

Play with ‘bringing in the cones’ with time so the playing field is smaller and more full of energy.
