Personal Revolutions: A Short Course in Realness is a book designed to help you look at every level of your life from the inside out. It contains 166 practical ‘Revolutions’ for awareness and over 8000 Self-Guidance Questions for you to start building your real life on the realest possible foundation. See further down the page for the full list of ‘Revolutions’.
The book/course is based on the simple assumption that it is what it is and you can either learn to accept it or to bring more friction to your life by allowing your ego to convince you that things are otherwise. It combines cutting edge thought from practical philosophy, design and systems thinking, and coaching and leadership to help you look at every level of your life from the ground to the sky and back again so that you can take real action.
