5. Justice (From The Integrity Family)

There is nobility in truth and in those who hunt for it and insist upon it. Justices are our human compasses. They point us to true north and keep us from straying off course. You see this in the judge, lawyer or politician who won’t sell out and chooses the right way. What would happen in our legal, financial or spiritual worlds if no one…

Martha Stewart is an entrepreneur of creative expression. Her fundamental gift is leveraging and building on creative ideas by demonstrating how to bring them into reality via her television program, magazine, products, and books. Albert Einstein used his…

10. Engineer (From The Structure Family)

Our civilization is built on layers of structure, operating procedures and quality control. Would you be comfortable driving across a bridge built without plans? Do you know someone who loves to organize an office, garage or kitchen, helping to create a sense of order? How many movers and shakers would be dynamically effective without the people who hold it all together behind the scenes? Engineers…

12. Scholar (From The Learn Family)

Every age has its own outlook.  It is especially good at seeing certain truths and especially liable to make certain mistakes.  We all therefore need the books that will correct the characteristic mistakes of our own period and that means the old books.” C.S. Lewis from God in the Dock Scholars are compelled to discover and acquire knowledge. Teacher, scientist, explorer, historian, anthropologist, theologian…all are…

16. Focus

Focus is what a person actually sees. I call it their reality.  It is like a camera lens, and there are different lenses for different purposes. Some people are born with a lens that sees the ladybug crawling across a leaf. They see close-up the vivid colors, the brilliance of the micro-world. Others have a zoom lens that moves in to see the ladybug and…

20. Core Nature

Your core nature is what attaches meaning to relationships, vocation, actions and experiences. It’s your significance filter. What’s meaningful or significant to you may completely elude someone else’s filter. It includes what you value most and seek most from interpersonal communication and other processes. It is your reward system, determining how your unique abilities are best clarified, evaluated and refreshed. A person’s core nature is…

25. It’s A Wonderful Life

It’s a Wonderful Life is my very favorite movie, the story of a man becoming aware of who he is and how he impacts all the other people in his life. Only when he comes to the end of himself is he able to stop, look and listen. C.S. Lewis talks about pain as God’s megaphone to the world and the end of ourselves as…

18. Energy

This area of time awareness is filled with nuance…with the abstract, aesthetic part of time…with the invisible. Therefore, it is the hardest to identify and describe. It’s like the breeze we feel across our face but cannot see, touch or hold. In a sense it touches us. It is noticeable through the results and consequences of its presence rather than by appearance. Energy is the…
