As you get the hang of interviewing, you will surround yourself with quite a menagerie of emerging potentials. They will each have their recommendations and their own particular competencies. A log, such as the following, is a way to keep track of everyone and what they recommend.
This is a way of showing your interviewed emerging potentials that you are continuing to respect and listen to them long after the interview, by taking their support and recommendations seriously. This is a metaphorical exercise, in that they do not actually exist. What you are doing is remembering and becoming perspectives of your inner compass that awaken life to itself. Such an interactive, ongoing dialogue and working relationship with valued members of your internal support community or Sangha can only hasten your growth into greater health, balance, and transformation.

You can also stay in touch with your emerging potentials by surrounding yourself with pictures of them at work, in your bathroom, on your computer laptop, your bedroom, and your car. One student made a “tarot deck” of her growing family with a picture of each on one side and its qualities, uses, and recommendations on the other.
