You Are Not Your Tools

You have a body, yet you are not your body. You have a mind, yet you are not your mind. You have many wondrous tools, yet you are not these tools. What are you then?

Being is different from having.

Dare: identify in your mind everything that complies to statement ‘I have’, move it to the background and see what remains as ‘I’?

There is no value in having unless it is connected with the way of being. Even more profoundly, since:

We are not human beings. We are human be-comings.

what are you becoming?

Because we have all these tools, that puts us in the role of master. The application of these tools enables possibilities of how our life happens to us.

Life by design is all this is about!

Snap: do you have a design? Do YOU own it?

  • “There is no value in knowing!”, ex-colleague
  • “Possibility”, distinction, “Landmark Education”
  • “Be – Do – Have” vs. “Have – Do – Be”, technology, “Landmark Education”


  • “Life by Design”
  • “And that is my design”
  • Master vs. Victim
  • BE – DO – HAVE – ENJOY!
