Three Laws of Performance

I finished reading The Three Laws of Performance a few months back. I'm pretty sure that its an amazing book, but the concepts were a bit hard to understand. So I'll need to read it again to be able to explain what's going on in it. (That's why I didn't take any notes on it -- or maybe I was just lazy :) Anyway, here are the 3 laws (which in the book are illustrated with some amazing stories):

  1. How people perform coorelates to how situations occur to them.
  2. How a situation occurs arises in language.
  3. Future-based language transforms how situations occur to people.
