Life in the fast Lane

Look at this phone – it receives faxes, emails, texts and pages. Oh, and phone calls. I can use it on mountaintops, on moors, on remote beaches … it reaches everywhere.


The hyperactive go-getters of this city cram a whole week into every day, and count any moment when they are doing less than three things simultaneously as a waste of time.At the gym, they are all watching TV as they pound the treadmills and jabber into their phones. In the car, they yell at their radios as they chew on their breakfasts. In meetings, they monitor their stock-holdings via their palm-sized computers and the ballgame on their wristwatch TVs.Hardly surprising, then, that it takes forever to get anything done in LA. Movies wallow in development limbo for decades. Legal cases drag on for lifetimes. Even their car chases happen in slow motion – remember the OJ Simpson farce?I believe strongly that the only efficient way to get anything done is to apply total focus. Whatever you are doing, do it as if your life depends on it. When it’s done, put it out of your mind – and focus on the next task, 100 per cent.Whether you are watching TV or pressing the boss for a pay rise, cooking a meal or enjoying a work-out, be focused. By trying to do two things at once, you’ll slow both tasks down by far more than 50 per cent. And if you try to do more than two … you might as well be doing nothing at all.Fwant to live in the fast lane, think about this metaphor:When he drives a Ferrari, Michael Schumacher wins races. But if he tried to switch constantly between two Ferraris, would he win two first places? Or finish a dismal last?

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

Tannens Magic Blog

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Absolutely amazing”

Mick Jagger

“Truly incredible”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”

“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”

Clint Eastwood

“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
