We yearn for simplificity, yet we are in ourselves very complex creatures by default. We pray for a magic pill that will solve all of our problems and get us back on track living the life we want on our terms.
Despite my years of experience, the responsibility I’d taken for my life outcomes, no matter how negative they were and the fact I’d tried hard to be the master of my destiny by starting businesses I wanted to I’ve waited and hoped for one too. It never came.
The first and persistent problem we hit in the Endless Search is that of course, we are actually all very different despite what the spiritual, business or marketing gurus might lead us to believe.
Now I realise there is no one-size fits all cure-all that will release us from this right-of-passage jail time anxiety inducing anguish. I’ve wasted years looking for an escape from this perpetual prison sentence.
Little did I realise the way out was much closer to home and absolutely without a shadow of doubt always within our control and available to us at any and all times.
For this reason, I worked relentlessly to translate my concepts and ideas into a flexible framework that would apply to everyone but in practice be unique to the individual. In this way, it has a much greater chance of helping more people, no matter their background.
The first book in the Work Life Wide Open series ‘Break Your Busy - Set Your Creativity Free’ was intended as an on-ramp to these deeper, more insightful concepts and practical blueprint for the High Definition Life we are all trying to live happier more, useful and meaningful lives within.
So far the first book in my Work Life Wide Open Series has started to serve its purpose and is continuing to deliver on its promise.
It has hit #1 in many of its categories on Amazon’s free listings including Mentoring & Coaching, Time Management, Business Skills, Creativity & Genius, Creativity, Personal Transformation, Stress Management, Personal Growth and Personal Success.
Now, the next book in the series ‘The Seven Works - Reconfigure The Facets of Life’ digs deeper into the core curriculum and foundation of Significant Life Change. It takes us a step closer to identifying our core life problem, explaining why it’s so persistent. It explores how to make small changes in our life now that will lay the groundwork for more meaningful, longer lasting and impactful change to come.
Change now. Unlock your time and creativity.
Believe me, when I tell you that even with the solid foundation I had in life I wasn’t able to crack the code by myself. Primed by ten solid years of seeking and searching everywhere and anywhere to find the answers it still took me what seemed like forever to join the dots and finally see what was going on.
I couldn’t even fall back on a traumatic childhood as the deep-seated reason for my discord and the seemingly constant set backs in my work and personal life. I had a loving and supportive family, a post-graduate education and an excellent work ethic. These Godsends combined with an ability to learn quickly and apply what I’d learned efficiently with unrelenting and often extreme focus left me perplexed at how the life I wanted continually eluded me.
Even with a not insignificant level of worldly achievement and success I still wasn’t able to start living life how I wanted. Hell, I couldn’t really, underneath it all get to grips with what I wanted, never mind what I truly needed.
It’s amazing how not knowing what you want, let alone living it can ricochet around your life, your work, and your relationships, wreaking havoc along the way, without you being aware what the real problem is. I call this living in the Idyllic Illusion. Avoid it at all costs.
Through the ups and downs of broken relationships, businesses and finances I’ve been searching. But it wasn’t until I finally made a significant life changing decision to break my busy did I eventually start on the path to understanding how life does and doesn’t work for us in the High Definition Life and what to do about it.
This is where ‘The Seven Works - Reconfigure The Facets of Life : Reduce Inner and Outer Conflict with a New Flexible Blueprint for The High Definition Life’ picks up the baton and comes to our collective rescue.
With it, we can say goodbye to the outdated concept of work-life balance, and all but eliminate conflict at home and work. In the process, we will gain far greater insight and clarity into What we want to be and do in the world and most importantly Why.
These enduring Real Work characteristics are the pre-cursors to creating the life we want by Planning To Give of ourselves to life as oppose to Planning To Get as much as we possibly can from it. Sounds a little too obvious now I say it doesn't it?
Maybe, but in reality, we can easily confuse ourselves and only when we peel back a few layers of our life experience do we start to appreciate we had it the wrong way around all along.
Take the first or next step to developing a simple, unique practice that will allow you to maintain a truly meaningful connection with your self and others while on your evolving life-work adventure.
It’s not only time to get to know and understand the facets of life, but it is also long overdue that we all started to reconfigure them in our own special unique way.
