Ananth's Managing Moments Journal
Ananth received a notebook after his dance presentation at the parent workshop at Dr. Kamakshi Memorial Hospital on February 1, 2020. Today, we decided to build his dance journal using this notebook and the Managing Moments kit.
We decided to set up a page for the month. In addition to the monthly page, we will add pages for details as needed.
An important moment at the workshop! Professor Mohanan recited a verse that is timely for Ananth as a focus for practice this month!
The Managing Moments Process
Because life does not follow your plan!
The Managing Moments process is based on the idea that we are continuously refining our ideas of our desired future. We are also considering, starting, modifying, continuing, and extending projects based on information revealed by moments.
Managing Moments distinguishes moments and actions. Actions happen over a period of time. As shown in the figure, there are five steps in the Managing Moments process. Each step is influenced by moments. In other words, the steps do not occur in a strict linear sequence. Any of the five sets of activities are changed by moments in unpredictable ways.
