Comments10/10/2016 #5 Aaron SkogenWelcome to the hives @Lynsey Heeks. THis is a solid post, well done. In particular, I like that you wrapped it up with using what you learned to improve.

Comments08/10/2016 #24 AnonymousI loved this @Kevin Pashuk! I am not whole if all my energy is spent on only one aspect of what it means to be human. Although some life circumstances will require periods of undivided attention. I like your categories and can see them as overlapping as opposed to compartmentalizations. For me, balance seems to happen more when I am releasing the reigns.08/10/2016 #22 debasish majumderintriguing post indeed Kevin Pushuk! i guess, we have little to do in terms of controlling our boxes as you describe. our external world used to play they key role and that actually the ingredient which being instilled through fuel injector, determining the induction mechanism to work, mobilizing us to get the momentum. we are forced to act according to the available circumstances, where our personal life and desire have very little significance. besides, our life is not a machine, where the reflection in our faculty used to play a key role. car can be your fancy, but car have no life, neither have at all any ability to make any decision, effecting our decisions, and moreover, along with steering, five wheels are of great significance along with the human effort which is the driving force of world history. however, nice post. enjoyed read. thank you for sharing the post.08/10/2016 #20 Lisa GallagherThe picture of the car is really cool @Kevin Pashuk. I think it's great that your art students drew pictures of the car. Love the matrix boxes and the 6 components of a healthy life. Real goals one can achieve, even if just one goal a day is written in the boxes. My son and daughter both have date nights with their spouses once a month. I wish that concept would have been around when we were younger and raising kids (well even if we weren't raising kids). I see that as a very healthy aspect to a relationship. My daughter is so cute about it- you'd think she was going out on a date with her boyfriend, not her husband! That's how it should be :)) Thanks for this.08/10/2016 #18 Aleta CurryThanks for this, @Kevin Pashuk. Too often, people are thinking laterally or one dimensionally, as if everything works for everyone, or presenting either/or scenarios. The truth is that we are not one trick ponies, and we are complicated, therefore our planned solutions for healthy, balanced living, have to take that into account.08/10/2016 #15 Karen Anne Kramer ~ CNN Women Leaders 2015@Kevin Pashuk.. Well Kevin! What a challenge for me always bringing my(very slight) OCD ALONG when I read articles. Truth be known, I cannot take my eyes off that car! Read a paragraph., then back to the car. such a lovely fun and ultra smart organized way to live. This was so informative. I thank you ! KAK ( I am putting my initials on because I am not well known here) I will.be if I can just stop looking at cool cars!16/06/2016 #14 Kevin Pashuk#13 Thanks for the compliments @Aaron Skogen. I do tend to agree with you about the listicle - even though a number of my posts have them. I did a fair bit of blogging for a technical magazine and they wanted blogs that had "5 Things..." in the title. I'm not proud, so any newer work will try to avoid it.16/06/2016 #13 Aaron SkogenLove the matrix @Kevin Pashuk. I'm not a fan of the listicle commonly found over on LI, and I was concerned this may be one. Thankfully it was not! You have touched on a point about balance that I completely believe in, that there is not "one size fits all" rule. We each find balance in different ways. Your matrix happens to correspond to my approach. Work is but a small part of the complete tapestry of our lives. Thanks for a well articulated and thoughtful post Kevin.16/06/2016 #11 Kevin Pashuk#10 The original Mini will forever be in my heart @Dean Owen. While they were an engineering force to be reckoned with, and would go practically anywhere, they weren't about to be acting as limos for the rich and famous. My son bought one of the new minis, and while pretty, it missed the mark on so many points for those of us who experienced the original. It's much like those who insist tofu is a great substitute for steak, having never tasted the wonder of charbroiled beef.16/06/2016 #10 Dean OwenUnlocking the internal secret of happiness - an exceptional thought process ruined only by your assumption that the new BMW made Mini's are sexy and the original Mini, Car of the Century, was a piece of junk. For that reason, I give you one star! Let's not forget the Mini Cooper S won the Monte Carlo rally 3 times in the 1960's! (Angryface)16/06/2016 #9 Kevin Pashuk#8 My mini also had 4 wee cylinders @Ken Boddie, but my life has 6... so I had to expand the model to fit my life. That car was a wonder. With your butt approximately 3" (7.5cm for those of you who are younger) off the roadway, it was more like driving a go cart. It would feel like you were doing 100 mph, then you look down and realize you were really doing 30.16/06/2016 #8 Ken BoddieDon't want to spoil the imagery, @Kevin Pashuk, but I thought the original minis had an Austin straight 4 cylinder engine? They certainly were unique vehicles, much more so than the modern day BMW revival, and the only car you can comfortably drive down stone steps. Thought you might enjoy this clip of the Italian Job movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtWkewqIFDM Wont't do much for your life balance overall but may add a couple of positive to the soul box. 🚗16/06/2016 #7 Kevin Pashuk#6 While I fit in the driver's seat quite comfortably, it was more comical to watch on the days it was my turn to drive for the car pool. There were three others. One was average (like me). The other two looked like a taller and rounder (respectively) version of Laurel and Hardy. Squeezing those two in the back seat always made me chuckle seeing 'Laurel's' knees up by his ears. It's a good thing it wasn't a long drive.16/06/2016 #5 Emilia M. Ludovino#2 LOL Love your buzz @Kevin Pashuk - I like that you outline so very well the importance of Body, Work, Spirit. Community, Family and the matrix of the boxes it's really important because write down and has a visual overview of our chores make a big difference to lower anxiety and stress. Very well done. I'm happy that you shared it also.

Comments08/10/2016 #9 Ian Weinberg#8 @Deb Helfrich thanks for that. I sincerely believe that we are evolving into a new scientific space as we speak. The old has not provided adequate answers. The substrate for 'legitimate' enquiry has narrowed significantly as more and more concepts have become inconvenient for incorporation into existing models. I would name Rupert Sheldrake and physicist Dean Radin amongst several others, who are birthing a new science.08/10/2016 #8 Deb HelfrichAh, Rupert Sheldrake has done some fascinating science. The easiest to approach is around how dogs know when their owners are coming home. And here is a pertinent quote from his book titled "Morphic Resonance"
"Although evidence is piling up that cosmology is evolutionary, old habits of thought die hard. Most scientists take eternal Laws of Nature for granted – not because they have thought about them in the context of the Big Bang, but because they haven't.
Laws anthropomorphize because what are laws in relation to nature, and there is no parallel in nature for monarchs or parliaments or congresses. The legal metaphor is incoherent.
I suggest a new possibility. The regularities of nature are not imposed on nature from a transcendent realm, but evolve within the universe. What happens depends on what has happened before. Memory is inherent in nature. It is transmitted by a process called morphic resonance, and works through fields called morphic fields."
This is in parallel with all of the studies about embodied cognition, wherein our senses of very subtle things influence our behavior in very marked ways. Of course, we are in many ways just as invisibly effected by the macro world as the micro world. The age of rational intellect as the supreme force in the universe is all but over.
It is only human to think about things. It is socialized dogma to find certain things not worth thinking about.
I am quite eager to surrender to the possibilities that I am so far unable to fathom.08/10/2016 #6 Chas Wyatt@Ian Weinberg, Velikovsky's theories about planetary collisions were laughed at by the scientific community,but, are now regarded seriously by that same community. The theory of floating Tektonic plates on the Earth's magma was once also scoffed at. If it weren't for the moon's pull we would not have tides and the seas would essentially be dead. Astrology is based on a twelve planetary system. Planet x, a tenth planet is becoming more and more accepted by the scientific community as well as a possible 11th planet. Many esoteric teachings and beliefs are beginning to be accepted by science as not just being cloaked in the veil of myth and folktales, but, being rooted in reality.08/10/2016 #3 AnonymousI like to explore science, but I'm not a scientist so my feeble mind only grasps so far. At some point, I say to myself, wasn't all science conjecture at some point or another in human history anyways until proven/disproven and our beliefs subsequently evolved? I also like to explore poetry, literature, music and art, and sometimes I think they are all saying the very same things, they just use different languages and words and expressions. When I explore my heart, the stars whisper things to me. Maybe that's where both science and art are born. Maybe that's what is Awakening. Maybe.08/10/2016 #2 Peter van DoornScientists need evidence. At some point in the very near future, we will not be able to find evidence anymore. Is that the end of science? I wonder.
I even wonder if the end of science would be a disaster or a blessing?
What did science do for humanity? Agreed, we live longer. The quantity of years improved dramaticly. I dare to say the quality of life itself did not improve. In the old days you had to be physically strong to be free. Now you need mental strength.
Science gave as weapons of mass destruction. Science gave us a long virtual life. I see so many people depending on technology.
A life staring at your phone. Expressing yourself on social media. Virtual, prolonged life. Safe. That's it, isn't it, we feel safe.
"Perhaps we ought to read the stars?" I have another suggestion. "Perhaps we ought to reach the stars?"
We reached a point where we know so much. And we use all that knowledge for potential destruction and dependence. To make money.
Two million years of evolution, and we are still apes.
Maybe humanity is near a turning point. The way we chose is up to us. Not to me. The universe is not going to change because of our actions.
We are free. And thus alone.

Here is what one of my client said: "" From the first moment Dunja digged deep, and uncovered my true fear, the fear which I never realised was laying underneath the surface. She helped me deal with it in the moment and stayed with me in thoughts, spirit and vocally that I felt safe the whole time. Even though I broke down in tears I came out stronger and more brave, ready to take on what I fear and ready to face anything life is going to throw to me. If I feel that the voice of fear wants me to drag me down, I acknowledge it but tell it to take a back seat while I walk or dance it away.

Comments05/10/2016 #4 Renée CormierI always tell people (and myself, sometimes) to change the talk in your head. I agree with you completely. Much of what holds us back in any situation will depend on how we choose to frame things in our own minds. Being your own cheerleader is very important, but I think everyone also needs an external cheerleader in life in order to combat feelings of self-doubt. I am glad you are inclined to encourage others. People who put up emotional road blocks for others are a dime a dozen.05/10/2016 #3 Julie Hickman"Like any good friend, we want him to stop us, slap us in the face and tell us that it’s ok to fall and fail, and that if we do, we will stand up again and continue the journey." - @Enrique Rubio View more"Like any good friend, we want him to stop us, slap us in the face and tell us that it’s ok to fall and fail, and that if we do, we will stand up again and continue the journey." - @Enrique Rubio

Comments19/08/2016 #2 CityVP ManjitDear Evelyn, the book Crucial Conversations is indeed an excellent desk companion and it is made even better when we accompany this reading with the work done by the Harvard Negotiation Project called "Difficult Conversations" http://www.peace.ca/difficultconversations.pdf View moreDear Evelyn, the book Crucial Conversations is indeed an excellent desk companion and it is made even better when we accompany this reading with the work done by the Harvard Negotiation Project called "Difficult Conversations" http://www.peace.ca/difficultconversations.pdf When insights from both books are coupled - they form really excellent resources in our reference library.
There are books which one can read cover to cover or even simply glance and browse and that is the disposable value of knowledge, yet the iterative value of continuous improvement makes books like "Crucial Conversations" and "Difficult Conversations" as the books that accompany our own life journey. If I am reading a book on Accounting, once I know the methodology I know it, knowing how to do a trial balance is bit of knowledge. Knowing how to create meaningful relationships, that is a lot of life.
We can have a lot of life and still have bits of knowledge or we can have lots of bits of life and lots of knowledge. I am a developing connoisseur of the former and that is the elegance I wish personally to live in, and today my learning is a learning journey - a journey with an endless horizon or at least until I crash into the rocks of so called reality.
Most of our life journeys are to a destination and we are navigating challenges, and that is when conversation helps us with our challenges. Beyond this conversation helps us to see conversation and that in turn allows us to begin to see the whole - and even in an organizational situation - this is the actual smarter essence of when our leadership also becomes whole. Close19/08/2016 #1 Alan Geller"What makes a conversation crucial and not just challenging, frustrating, frightening or annoying? It´s crucial when the result could have a huge impact on the quality of YOUR LIFE." Fair enough Evelyn Kloetzer. Here's another perspective: "If someone were to cut your body with a sharp knife, you would probably have a significant reaction. Why? Well, at first you'd say because it hurts. But this isn't the whole story. More than likely, as the blade cuts, you would interpret that it is "you" that is being cut or damaged. But if it were a piece of tofu being cut, you wouldn't care at all. We figure that's just because we don't "feel" the tofu, but what's also true is that we aren't the tofu. If someone scratched the paint of your cherished new car, pain could easily be a reaction. Why is there pain in this case and not with the tofu? Because it's "your" car, something that represents you in some way, something to which you are attached. You have no nerves in the car, and it still causes pain. Just so, if your body was cut, and you really didn't consider this body as anything you or yours, what reaction would there be? - Peter Ralston, The Book of Not Knowing

I did try as a teen to get into the world of acting and would very much still like to do it, but it is a cutthroat and difficult industry to make a name for yourself in. Still, many actors have done so at the later stages of life. Morgan Freeman didn´t do his first film until he was in his 50´s.

I now live in Bali where time moves at a more agreeable pace and tap out pieces and books that I hope people read. However beware!!!! A terminal disease can creep up and getcha ! Sloth and procrastination, which at times embraces me in its clutches like a hungry python.

Good Luck !23/06/2016 #6 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianFreelancers and start-up entrepreneurs are cut from the same cloth. This year, I started offering an annual contract. I gave a break on fees in return for an annual commitment. I don't even charge extra for the occasional "emergency piece." Contract clients have priority on my time and pay less. Both they and I can budget more effectively. It's a win-win. "On-call clients" were disappointed when I had to refuse jobs both for the Facebook ChatBot and MS/LI announcements. I would rather refuse a job than miss a deadline.
I haven't missed a deadline yet and have no intention of starting now.
re: "Setting boundaries is a must. This means that family and friends need to “get” that you’re not 100% available," that applies to clients too.

What about open the window and go outside of your comfort zone :) Breathe the fresh air and let your inner light shine bright - as we never know to whom we are being a beacon of light in the darkness and inspiration.

And also: "The things that daunt us and trigger us can be the windows into new worlds of change. We can take a look through the window or we can close the drapes and go back to sleep." Well said!
