I graduated from the 2nd est training in San Francisco (I believe it was 1971.) It was at the Jack Tarr Hotel.
Langdon Carter was my trainer and Ron Bynum was in the back of the room at guarding the door. We were at the Jack Tarr Hotel.
I had to pee so bad toward the end of the first day that I got up and ran to the back, out the door, and was stopped by Ron.
When I told him that I was willing to forgo the $200 and I WAS GOING TO THE BATHROOM! … he finally relented, but made me promise that I would not do that again for the rest of the training. I did.
I went on with est to be in the first Trainer Training held. I did not continue because I was offered a dream job at the Joe Alioto’s Mayor’s Criminal Justice Council under Bill Mallen.
Today, in my office, I have a sign that states – “If you wouldn’t write it and sign it, don’t say it.”
I don’t know if my life would have been as good had I not taken est…but I am glad I did.
