Week 3: Focus David-San

Posted by

Shortly after the third week session of the Master Key Experience (MKE), I had this epiphany… Answers come when they need, not as you want.

Quick sidebar… I can see why we were to have 300 3×5 cards for the program. When the epiphany and other thoughts popped in my head, I wrote them down before I forgot.

I have to admit it’s been agony for me to figure out what’s my Definite Major Purpose (DMP) while manifesting it effectively on paper.

Another sidebar… I feel someone’s going to tell me, you don’t ‘figure out’, but that’s contemplation for another time.

The lead guide of MKE, Mark, shows this clip of the movie Karate Kid where Daniel complains to Mr. Miyagi all the crap he’s doing for him and not learning karate as he was promised.

I’m slowing coming to see, like Mr. Miyagi, Mark is not an instructor, but a guide. Mark, Pamela (personal guide) and MKE, cannot give me answers, they must come from me as I travel my journey.

OK… the last paragraph sounds so Zen-like, but like Daniel-San, David-San was getting frustrated this past week on his journey.

Before MKE started, my life was, and still is, what Denis Waitley calls Someday Isle. Someday I’ll do this, someday I’ll do that.

Someday Isle doesn’t work with DMP.

I swear I must have rewritten a dozen iterations of my Someday Isles, from Ghandi-like to uninspiring drivel.

And to top it off, Mark (MKE), shared more guidance (notice I didn’t say instruction) on how to write an effective DMP.


I’m very analytical, or WHITE, in color coding of personality styles, and one thing that ‘frosts my cookies’ is not having all the information upfront, especially if you had it.

Like my epiphany earlier… Answers come when they need, not as you want.


  1. Thank you for the share…I thought it was just me struggling with the DMP. “Answers come as they are need, not as you want”…very well stated and something Im trying to wrap my head around. Thank you again for your insight.

  2. David, how true you are, answers do come when you need them, not when you want them. From your blog rover friend.
