This part of the site is about taking charge of your outer life, about your dealings with the world.
Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told,
"I am with you kid. Let's go."
You need to bring order, balance and focus to your life in the world – your work, your projects, your time out and your future. You have to know where you are going, to assert yourself as the person you are.
You need to live out your own gifts.
The five sections are:
- The cycle of action and learning
- Getting things done
- Want-tos and have-tos
- The act of creation
- Community feeling.
There are two practices here:
1 The cycle of action and learning is the foundation of action (as close listening is of human relationships). It has two applications here:
- Getting things done is a foreground application, a matter of paying close attention to the details of living from day to day.
- Want-tos and have-tos is a background application, in which you review your life systematically, conjuring up a fresh vision of who you are and where you are going.
2 The act of creation is about bringing a project to life. This is a natural, non-linear model of the creative process.
Finally, the section about community feeling puts your life and projects into the context of human society and the wider world.
