Product Description

"Flying by the seat of your pants" (aka) managing life by 'intuition' is the norm for most people, every single day, all over the world. Hundreds of millions of people flying blind, hoping and praying not to crash and make it home for dinner once more at the end of the day. So, what's the alternative to 'life management' by intuition? For millions, the alternative is the mass consumption of a daily diet of 'motivational quotations' taken like a dose of aspirin, caffeine or sugar snacks delivering that 'jolt' of inspiration, or relief from the emotional pain they're suffering. For most it never lasts. It's a temporary fix leaving them unsatisfied and hungrily chewing through inspirational slogans, 'life coaches' and 'self-help gurus' looking for 'something' that will stick. Something solid and authentic they can build on.Life As a CraftThe alternative to the glut of 'fix my life quick' motivational 'fast-food' flooding the marketplace, is to make a masterpiece of your life the 'old fashioned way'; take the time and do the work with skill and quality. After all, no mission is more important and no adventure is more rewarding. To practice the whole of 'life-as-a-craft', the way a craftsperson mindfully practices the trade of textile weaving, medicine, or carpentry, requires that the myriad activities of the 'craft of life' be systematically organized, managed, taught and learned similar to the ways in which we organize, manage, teach and practice our trades, occupations and professions.Drawing upon centuries of knowledge and practical experience by master craftsmen and craftswomen, Charles Collins has skillfully organized a complete body of life knowledge into Five Elements, providing the guidance and motivation to practice 'life-as-a-craft'.In Other's Words:"Every once in awhile a book is destined to become a classic. This is one of those books."--Dick Hoffman, Author"INTIMACY: 45 Minutes to an Intimate Life""Thank you very much for providing me with the info I wanted. It is a beautiful story."--Deborah CritzerPositive Parenting"The Canadian Crime Prevention Centre strongly encourages people to take responsibility for their own lives and to stop being victims.
