  • Creative output system, not a storage system

  • We are moving from the age of attention to the age of perspective. Perspective is the currency.

My 12 Favorite Problems (Copied from Write of Passage Cohort 7)

  1. How can I balance the drive for self-improvement and helping others, against unskillful attachment and clinging to desired conditions and outcomes?
  2. How can I share with others what I perceive may be of benefit and encourage uptake, without being a snake oil salesman (or having the fear of being perceived as one, stop me from sharing?)
  3. How can I share more of myself with my family without the anxiety or fear of causing them suffering and worry?
  4. How can I balance interactions with the wider world versus cultivating inner qualities that lead to freedom?
  5. How can I worry less about not being a perfectly enlightened being who is equipped to talk about spiritual topics, and embrace that I'm a flawed human being instead?
  6. How can I be wise about how I spend my effort in helping others to optimize impact?
  7. How can I shorten the distance between having an idea and sharing it? (Includes: better writing and storytelling skills, cultivating an audience, etc.)
  8. How can I do a better job looking after myself financially so that I will not be a burden to others when I am old and/or sick?
  9. How can I optimize my mental and physical health/energy on a day-to-day basis to reach my goals?
  10. What can I do to leave lasting positive impact on the world, after I die?
  11. How can I assess if I am even asking the right/appropriate questions to address a problem, and adjust accordingly?
  12. How can I remind myself to reflect upon these problems instead of being distracted by the problem/fire of the day? šŸ™‚

  • When there is a problem, look upstream or downstream. E.g. it might seem like Capture is the problem, but it's actually Organize (downstream) that is the problem
