Your One Word 2

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“Once you discover your One Word [<link; medium read], the next stage is going granular, gaining more and more clarity on what it means. Building a high-fidelity model / map.”

“What’s your process for doing that?”

“I’m thinking meta.

What is the highest-order level that captures the essence of who I am / strive to be?

I’m focusing on four domains – like four cardinal-points:

Meta-Identity (essential identity-blocks [<link; medium read])
Meta-Principles
Meta-Values
Meta-Skills

Visually the map looks like this:

My One Word

Each item on the map is a (ever-evolving) philosophy in itself.”

“You’ve beautified the map itself.”

“There’s a quote I love by Josh Waitzkin:

The real art in learning takes place as you move beyond proficiency, when your work becomes an expression of your essence.

Expanded to the Art of (Playful) Living:

The real art in living takes place when your work becomes an expression of your essence – and your entire life becomes your work.

For the Life-Artist everything is a means of self-expression.”

“Do you think that anyone can be a Life-Artist?”

“Yes. I strongly believe that anyone can, if they choose to.”
