The Landscape of your Life2022-01-29

Do not let making a living prevent you from making a life.

John R. Wooden

The dimensions of a successful life are:

  • Health of self and progeny (essentially, your genes).
  • Wealth (essentially, an immediate environmental umbrella for your genes).
  • Influence (essentially, a broader cultural umbrella for your genes).

Everybody is at a particular moment in time somewhere in this tri-dimensional space (Lifescape- life landscape), and has a particular qualitative Life Type. Here they are, with illustrative albeit imperfect names:

HealthWealthInfluenceLife Type
HighHighHigh“The Ruler
HighHighlow“The Rich”
HighlowHigh“The Churchgoer”
Highlowlow“The Worker”
lowHighHigh“The Philanthropist”
lowHighlow“The Yuppie”
lowlowHigh“The Activist”
lowlowlow“The Serf”

These types are not fixed but can change over time with efforts or neglect, with good or bad fortune. Tracking them is a way of getting a handle of where you are and where you want to go.

Our Life x Mind by MindX Sciences app does that, and can provide a dashboard for your life and mind.

Live. Happier. Longer.
