"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Further to my earlier post on introducing the lifescape, here are the basic steps to developing lifescapes from Dilip Mukerjea:

Step 1: Ask Key Question(s) and Identify the Focal Issue

• What agitates you?
• What keeps you on edge?
• What can disrupt your status quo?
• What can you initiate today in order to checkmate approaching adversity?
• What can you spark alight now, in order to enhance your long-term prospects?

Learn to think so far ahead that you can look back at the future; so far back, that you can look forward to the past. Discard your mind-set in favour of mind-flux: the state of consciousness, one of aliveness, alert to peripheral awareness, breath of scope, and depth of vision.

The Focal Issue can now emerge from triggering a radiant stream of associations within the environment, addressing factors in domains such as: information, communication, entertainment, finance, education, energy, technology, society, transportation, environment, politics, and spirituality.

Step 2: Be a Hunter-Gatherer of Key Forces in the Micro Environment

Collate the information from Step 1; identify and prioritise the key forces, positive and negative, impacting the outcome of pivotal decisions hinged to the Focal Issue.

Match polar factors such as risk and reward, loss and gain, instant and distant, in order to tease out key elements for critical choices to be made.

You are now in a position to view possibilities influencing the success or failure of decisions and resolutions involving competitors, customers, suppliers and services…or, elements involving your personal relationship with yourself.
