Craft Your Life

Life is what happens while you’re making plans.  We’re taught to plan things before we execute, think ahead, work smarter not harder, that way we can get from here to there, achieve our dreams somewhat in the same way a classical army would “take that hill!”  I tend to visualize this as an architect carefully plotting out the entire structure, adjusting for ground water, trying to project how people will use the structure, making sure to accommodate all the local laws and restrictions, factoring in the budget, detailing what materials to be used, all of which culminates in a set of blue prints to be followed in making a building.…Details
