    Dream big dreams; only big dreams have the power to move men’s souls.” — Marcus Aurelius

    Success is more than just living in the present. Some people have dreams, but few have vision. Some simply live in the present; but others — they use the present to construct a better future.

    For example, birds exist day-to-day, squirrels store food in the summer for winter. And so it is with people. We best map out the roles we want to play on the stage of work. For we can be a star, but only if we prepare for it.

    You can choose to be a bit player on the stage of work or a superstar. But to be a star, you will want to learn skill mapping

    This module covers essential elements needed to stimulate foresight and construct a personal vision.

    The first-step is not easy for some. Why?  It calls for you to project yourself into the future using your imagination. If you somehow manage to get from K1 to 12 with your imagination intact, surely college will destroy it. 

    The case can be made that formal education causes imagination to atrophy. Think back, in any of your classes at any time in you life, did a teacher ask to close your eyes and use your imagination? Most people cannot come up with one time — not even once in the many years of sitting in a class room. If you somehow manage to get from K1 to 12 with your imagination intact, surely college will destroy it. 

    But what was atrophied can be fleshed out. 

    A core part of this process is to define the key skill-sets required to play a particular role. But before that, one has to define your social roles. Three of them are future oriented, one is related to what you are currently doing.

    Step 2a: Your Current Role

    Step 2b: Your Next Role

    Step 2c: Your Dream Role

    Step 2d: Your After Life Role


    Roles aren't just played in Hollywood and Bollywood. On the stage of work, you can be a bit player or a star. Imagine your future roles — a future you define — not your boss, not your parents, not your university, you.

    Objectives:
    • Develop a deeper understanding of foresight
    • Practice developing a vision for your future.
    • Write out your Four Roles

    A Program For You, Your Children and Grandchildren — Learn It Yourself — Teach It To Them

     

    Finding flaws matter. After all, your strengths get you hired, your weaknesses get you fired. Yet most people would not know how many flaws they have let alone whether they have a fatal flaw. 

    There is nothing worse then finding out you can't advance due to factors you control.

    Those who wish to lead and live an ethical life understand the importance of building habits known as virtues to counteract the tendency for us do bad things. It's like an ethical vaccine preventing descent into the abyss of bad habits, negative emotions and unproductive states.

    Those with the moral authority to lead, have virtues followers identify with.  More importantly, they Take Action to practice and install these in day-to-day activities that make up work and life. After all, it’s a poor sort of ethical system if you can't use it to guide daily decisions and actions.  

    By taking this class you will learn:

    • Why humans are good and bad: but you can choose the good
    • how to reveal your flaws and search for the elusive fatal flaw
    • A powerful way to evolve yourself by defining your virtues
    • About installing your virtues —it’s about making yourself better

    Module 1: You’re Good and You’re Bad: The Paradox of Your Mind

    "Everybody has good and bad forces working with them, against them, and within them.” ― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

    “The insufferable arrogance of human beings to think that Nature was made solely for their benefit, as if it was conceivable that the sun had been set afire merely to ripen men's apples and head their cabbages.” — Cyrano De Bergerac

    Module Description

    The Ego, as the primary part of the mind that deals with realty, also has some characteristics that prevent it from achieving happiness. This session looks at a number of these limitations.

    Freud was the first Western psychologist to point out the Ego was wrapped in a cocoon of largely unconscious mechanisms that protect—the way a blanket protects a baby. However, in adults, these Ego defense mechanisms filter and distort realty in ways that prevent the Ego from dealing with anxiety and dangerous truths. And so the Ego stays immature--often entering a state of arrested development.

    Module 2: The Search For The Fatal Flaw

     “A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time. When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, The one I feed the most.”   George Bernard Shaw

    Module Description

    If each of us that the potential to do good and bad, we should understand the nature of the bad in hopes that we can prevent this from occurring. In other words, assuming free will (a big assumption), you will choose what path you travel down. Just as important, is your ability to recognize pathologies in others. In this case, we are going to focus on traits and behaviors, the kind of thing you can observe in yourself and see in others.

    In this module, you will do what very few people do — document your flaws. For example, if you ask the average person what their top ten weaknesses are, they would look confused, the offended before going into denial that they have any flaws at all. Or perhaps they will give you a fake one—the kind of thing that you would do if you were in an interview.

    The search for the fatal flaw is a characteristics that will cause you no end of grief if you do not take care of it.

    “The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues.” Elizabeth Taylor

    Module Description

    Most people, that vast majority I belief, never ask themselves what they should be, what they should become by the time they check out of life. Sure, everyone focus on money and having lots of it, but very few focus on this issues of the character. Do you want be kind? Or is this unimportant. How about creative? Or resilient? or Optimistic? It seems strange that we would spend more time on our taxes in a year than we would what kind of person we should be. In this section, you will put together a profile for your "Ideal Self."

    “Virtues are too difficult,” I told him, shaking my head. “Look how old you are and you’ve hardly made a dent in them. I’ll admit, you seem to have zeal nailed, as well as faith and temperance. Self control? I’ve got my doubts based on your recent actions. I’m not seeing the kindness, love or generosity, either. That humility thing seems to be pretty far beyond your reach, too. Really, really far. I’m sorry to tell you this, but from what I can see, the sin of pride is a major component of your character. Dude, you’re old. You should have these things pretty well ticked off your shopping list by now. I’m seriously disappointed. Seriously.”

    Debra Dunbar, A Demon Bound

    Module 4: Take Action

    “Where we stand in times of controversy is a measure of our character,” said the Rev.  Jesse Jackson, an Apple shareholder who attended the meeting. “Some leaders only follow opinion polls. Others stand up for their principles, refuse to compromise, and mold opinion. We have such a leader of Apple, Tim Cook.” Benner, (2016) Apple Shareholders Show Their Support for Tim Cook, New York Times, Feb 25..

    Module Description

    Once you know your starting point and your destination, you still have to get from here to there. And this frankly, is the hard part. It's easy to come up with the map, it's hard to walk down the path. For what you are striving to do is reduce your bad behaviors, flaws and sins and substitute a better set of behaviors which we call the virtues.

    Unfortunately, this is not like taking a class, which you will only due once. You will have to practice many times. And you will find that sometimes you take a step forward, you will take a step back and it seems like you are standing in place. Don't worry about it.
