How to start a lab page

It’s easy and it’s also hard and it’s also something you should do anyway. Here’s how to do it.

Your purpose may change over time, but you lab gets you ready for fuzzy search.

To join the School of the Possible this is all you have to do. It doesn’t cost money but that does not mean it’s easy.

You know you have a personal purpose, right? Your reason for existence. Why are you here on this planet? If you don’t know, I want to help you figure it out. There is a simple recipe for this, and here it is:

Just write a medium post that clearly states your purpose in the world. Tell us about the place you want the world to become. There are a few examples below.

Then answer a few simple questions about your personal purpose. If you haven’t done it, you should, and you know you should, and as a reward, if you actually do it, we want to see it and share it with the world.

Here are the questions your lab page needs to answer, and what we need to see, in order to be approved for our publication:

A way to follow your progress.

When you publish, add the tag “lab” so it shows up in the labs tab on our home page.

When you are ready to submit it,

  1. Let us know by sending us a link to your page. Tell us you have a lab page for review.
  2. Follow these instructions to add it to our publication. We will be in touch

Labs are for people only. You can add your organization to your page, but your role changes over your life. This page represents you, and should remain relevant when you change jobs over time. It’s a living document that you use to reflect and revise your life’s purpose as you learn and grow over your lifetime.

Existing pages:

Adam Hansen.

Alicia Dudek.

Daniel Szuc.

Dave Gray.

Mike Parker.

Sunil Malhotra.
