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])
Visually the map looks like this:

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.

“Do you think that anyone can be a Life-Artist?”
“Yes. I strongly believe that anyone can, if they choose to.”
