I love the quality of commenting and discussion on this site - with how bad comments are on most of the internet, I've been really blown away with the amounts of wisdom and smart things we've gotten in the comments.
I try to take sharp and thought-provoking comments and make them into their own top level post, so they get full exposure. I try to do especially do this for comments on older entries that otherwise wouldn't be seen.
Now, it's really exciting when comments on comments are generating good discussion. This is what I've been looking for - a place where smart, ambitious, expansive, cool, good people communicate and talk and work on things.
Roy just replied to her work with an exercise that I think worthy of some consideration -
Hello. I liked this post and I that the idea of a life manifest is a great idea. I came to a similar conclusion a few years ago. Similar but somewhat different. Sit down and write your anti-biography. Or your Nemesis Bio if you want. This consist of writing the story of your life. But not your current life. The one you always wanted to live in your wildest dream. The beginning of your book should reflect your current life until now. But when you get to "today" and future dates, you write down what you want for yourself: become a renown physician, novelist, start a multi national company and marry you're prom queen, yes, the one that did not even knew your name back then... just what ever dream and goals, make it live in you Nemesis bio. When its done. Make it happen! You have a blue print. The goal is to transform your Nemesis bio into your actual biography. The earliest in life you write it the better.
Cheers Roy, interesting exercise. I'll spend a few minutes trying it out over lunch - looks interesting.

It's good, I like it. We've read a lot of the same books, and extrapolated many of the same ideas from it. It's worth checking out. Cheers Roy.
