Up Until Now
My favorite Golden Key trick for unlocking this constant comments was inspired by Virginia Satir, but I dedicate it to a Nebraska farmer who was being interviewed by a reporter on the occasion of his 100th birthday: "Have you lived all your life in Nebraska?" the reporter asked. "Well, yes," the farmer said, after a moment adding, "... up until now."
Lesson: whenever you're feeling trapped by a statement of Absolute Truth, consider breaking it by adding the disclaimer "...up until now."
