Personal Revolutions: A Short Course in Realness

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.

Here are just some of the potential benefits of investing in this ‘Course in Realness’ (check out the Amazon reviews by clicking here):

-Find out what you really want and how to get it.
Eliminate major blocks to creativity.
-Make better use of your time by learning to make decisions from the realest place within yourself, not based on either your own or other people’s illusions about you.

————————

From the intro:

This is a course in realness.

Personal Revolutions: A Short Course in Realness is a book about being human for human beings. It is an attempt to build a practical philosophy of the ‘good life’ and ‘self-actualisation’, or realness, by using design thinking to break these things down into as many of their constituent parts as possible. Each chapter (or ‘Revolution’) helps readers to raise real awareness of themselves, and their worlds, by focusing on a particular window into the human condition, and then allowing them to cement this awareness in terms of their own life and experience through a series of ‘Self-Guidance Questions’ and value-based, purposeful action.

Both individuals and tribes can benefit from the information and ideas in this book:

Individuals: If you’re an individual reading this book, you will be given the opportunity to look at your life from the ground up and to build a value-based process of action that helps you to live a more authentic life by increasing your ‘realness’ and making your values valuable to others. Ultimately, this involves looking at yourself and your world, the state of interdependence that you share with others, and the effects of any self-limiting beliefs and ideas that you carry about what is possible for yourself and the world, usually due to the fear, pride, and desire of ego (the opposite of reality).

Most people reading Personal Revolutions will find that they are capable of so much more than they have initially been led to believe, and will hopefully be able to motivate themselves to go out there and ‘put a dent in the universe’, either as part of a tribe, or by building a new one. Personal Revolutions is a ‘short course in realness’, and the final lesson is that ‘reality’ is always the way to go and that acceptance is the only way to get there (the ‘long’ course is your life itself).

This book is designed to help you find out almost everything you need to know about yourself.

Tribes: If you are reading Personal Revolutions as part of a tribe, either as a leader or a follower, this book will help you to create systems that allow as many people as possible within your tribe to thrive creatively, in a way that is most authentically human. In this sense, Personal Revolutions offers great value for anybody working in Service Design, or anybody else who has ambitions to create systems that engender and support the whole of real human nature, to the greatest extent possible, instead of the mere fragments that many mechanistic systems are currently built upon.

By combining practical philosophy with ideas from design thinking, systems theory, coaching, and leadership, Personal Revolutions helps us to appreciate the power of our thought and intellect, but also its limitations, and the relationship between our thoughts about the world and our real place and potential within it. By sharing the ideas and understanding in Personal Revolutions with other members of your tribe, you will be able to build value-based systems that support the growth of both these systems themselves, and the human beings operating within them.

This book is designed to help us build a real world that engenders real human potential.

Whether reading as an individual or reading together as part of a tribe, Personal Revolutions will help you to increase awareness of yourself and your world, better understand the real relationship between the two, and then build upon that awareness with self-directed, significant action.

———————————————

Personal Revolutions looks at the idea that life is ultimately a communication problem, beginning first and foremost with the way in which we communicate with ourselves.

10 Keys to Dialogue

1. Your opinions are something that you have, not something that you are. (via Bohm)

2. Human beings don’t possess facts, only interpretations. (via Nietzsche)

3. When people are ready to really talk, be ready to really listen.

4. Do not enter the circle to be served, but to serve.

5. Engage in dialogue with the people in front of you, not your ideas about these people.

6. Try to respond to each other consciously, not automatically. Create, don’t just react.

7. Try to use more of your time to move towards wholeness and less towards fragmentation. (via Bohm)

8. Think in terms of spectra and continua, not only in blacks and whites. Everything contains the seeds of its opposite.

9. Aim for presence, not distraction. Be in the circle. Stop thinking of things to say and wait to say what needs to be said. (via Senge)

10. Do no harm.
