Make yourself useful.
Make yourself scarce.
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“What is your niche?
Express it as one skill, and three skills.”
“Expressed as one skill, my niche is Thinking/Awareness. I consider it life’s most important skill.”
“Why the pairing?”
“I’ve integrated them together into one concept (Concept-Stacking [<link; short read]). Another way of expressing it is Thinking/Non-Thinking.”
Expressed as three skills, my niche is:
Meta-Thinking – Deconstructing and creating meaning and mental tools of thought, optimally directing attention, QM (Questions and Mental Models), …
Creative Thinking – Creativity and Design
Meta-Learning – Optimal Learning”
“If we think of these skills as tools, what is their ultimate output?”
“Artful Living – Life and Experience Design
Over the coming years, I want to discover ways of making myself useful in all these areas.”
