On Defining a Profession from Scratch

Hey, Sebastian.

I've been thinking about how you're a strategist. What does that entail? How do you go about getting into that area of study? How do you start learning about such a broad field?

My ideas for my life are fairly big and broad, making it difficult to know where to start. I know about the principles of kaizen, taking small steps that compound into something big, but there's still the question of which small steps (out of the 1000 possibilities) to start with. I'm hoping your experience with being a strategist might give me a few ideas.



Change Labs Mission 7: Self Acceptance

On Mindful Change

When I was in military basic training they determined my "ideal weight" - an actual number, not a range. Since then, I think I've always held that number in my head as where I "should" be (aka my ideal). But I'm no longer a teenager and that number may not even be realistic anymore. It's true that seeing the good in my body is a lot smarter than focusing on the extra weight I don't appreciate. So this week I will focus on appreciating the good in this body God gave me.

As far as my paper pile, I think my ideal is to have an empty inbox, at least weekly. The pile is much smaller than when we started but I haven't made it to empty yet. It's kind of hard to see the good in a pile of paper but I suppose there are opportunities. To make decisions. To keep only what serves me best and release the rest. To figure out how to organize my medical paperwork (even a binder or file would make more sense than my inbox). To build my anti procrastination muscle and start making paperwork related decisions more quickly. And probably more.

Peace, love and happiness to you all!
