Juan helped me see things about myself that were blind spots -- not faults necessarily, but ways of behaving and thinking that I was not conscious of. For instance, I remember him telling me during one conversation: "Oh, I see that's a rule you live by". I said "What rule is that?" Juan said "You don't do anything until its perfectly thought-through." As I considered his insight, I realized he was right on: that is a "rule" I operate by and never realized it. Well that "rule" tends to make me too cautious. It holds me back. Now when I start to feel that sense of reluctance creep into my thought process, I am much more aware of it and can honestly assess myself: am I waiting for perfection here, or is this good enough to get me started and I can refine the process later?That level of self awareness is an incredibly helpful filter to have. Juan's coaching and questioning process helped me see that about myself.
