Five inter-related elements moving in time: organization evolution (main change vehicle); life design (main change beneficiary); work life (career) evolution (main change initiator); financial investing (golden goose); and a life navigation system (the action sequencer).

These five dimensions are layered on a time "terrain" awareness foundation (discontinuous change). This TLN synthesis is the site's topic and scope. Developing an adequate, long-term (multi-generational) work approach is the desired end result.

These are not separate subjects. It is more useful to view them as key dimensions of a dynamic reality that is both unique to each of us and yet interconnected. A reality "moving" in time, but not linearly. Download news analysis and perception.doc to test the previous assertions for yourself.

Managing Oneself is a REVOLUTION in human affairs.” … “It also requires an almost 180-degree change in the knowledge workers’ thoughts and actions from what most of us—even of the younger generation—still take for granted as the way to think and the way to act.” …

… “Managing Oneself is based on the very opposite realities: Workers are likely to outlive organizations (and therefore, employers can’t be depended on for designing your life), and the knowledge worker has mobility.” ← in a context




These pages are attention directing tools for navigating a world moving toward unimagined futures.

It’s up to you to figure out what to harvest and calendarize
working something out in time (1915, 1940, 1970 … 2040 … the outer limit of your concern)nobody is going to do it for you.

It may be a step forward to actively reject something (rather than just passively ignoring) and then figure out a coping plan for what you’ve rejected.

Your future is between your ears and our future is between our collective ears — it can’t be otherwise. A site exploration starting point
