Episode 101: Practicing Life-as-a-Craft
An alternative to ‘life’ as a patchwork collection of disconnected experiences.
“Which one of us dares draw a harsh line,
Between art, craft and life?”
— Gilbert Grosvenor, Cabinet Maker & Book Editor
Most of us don’t have a system for learning life-as-a-craft, anymore than our parents had one for teaching us growing up.
Life-as-a-Craft is a framework that organizes all the life-skill subjects you will learn throughout your entire life, into a meaningful, cohesive structure. A powerful alternative to the pain and frustration of doing everything by trial and error, making it up as you go, and ‘flying by the seat of your pants’.
In this episode, we talk about:
- Life as a learned craft
- The Five Elements of Life-as-a-Craft
- The Four Phases of Living
- The Way of Craftsmanship
