Two of the more frequent questions our team encounters during explorations of lifestyle best practices, particularly the ones that foster health, wealth and happiness in ways that enhance communal quality-of-life and individual wholeness-of-being, can readily be categorized as follows:
- WHAT should I do?
- HOW do you do it?
Throughout this endeavor – ‘Getting It Done’ – established, emerging and elite creators and innovators share and-or demonstrate powerful approaches and solutions to life’s most pivotal challenges.
We highlight emblematic situations and scenarios high performance achievers often face in competitive and combative environments. We use these to encourage participants to discover or design best ways of getting things done in those as well as in other common environments.
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”Sir Winston Churchill
Getting ‘It’ Done (the series)
A unique approach.
In general, at pertinent stages of creative processes, or while solving a problem or engaged in some progressive pursuit, highly successful performers act upon their decisions and directives with the following in mind:
- what’s best to do,
- how best to do it
- a determination, measure or sense of the anticipated quality of the outcome
That framework will inform the general structure of this exploration.
Be aware, also, that throughout this series we’ve resolved to ‘do things’ in fresh new ways with fresh new applications using solid working principles while employing exciting innovations.
Each ‘Getting It Done’ episode includes real life scenarios underscoring its central theme, and is accompanied with informed insights, actions and recommendations..
In a remarkably innovative way you’ve probably not yet experienced, we explored each situation or scenario uniquely. We accomplish this by transforming one or other of seven parameters (anger, pride, sloth, greed, lust, envy, and pride) into a *fresh new lens (see definition). We also converted those seven parameters into *BS Meters, using each to measure attitudes and behaviors in ways designed to encourage deeper exploration. The entire detailed effort is focused on enhancing one’s ability to ‘get things done’ superbly well.
This will result in an exciting new transformation. Enjoy it. (No need to rush through! Outcome & Action are intimately related. Be your best.)

SDS Lens: A lens is a transmissive optical device that focuses a light beam by means of refraction. There are simple lenses (using single elements) and compound lenses (consisted of several simple lenses). There are many kinds of lenses, including microwave lenses, electron lenses, acoustic lenses, and the like. Ours is an SDS Lens. In this series we are not studying or exploring SDS lenses, we are using each SDS lens as a device to focus a refractive light beam on real situations and life impacting scenarios in our focused efforts to gain broader, deeper, or other meaningful insights. Our simple SDS lenses are lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. Look through (not at) each; see what you see.
BS Meter: A meter is a device that measures the amount of something (say gas, water, or electricity) being used. Our BS meters are employed to assess levels of situational worthiness or value (or BS, if you will) of particular actions, activities, or orders of conducting business. The BS Meters in this series are, variously, lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. Apply as you deem fit.
