Become LIFESMART one Micro-project at a Time

An exciting moment! Decades of experience as a professor and home educator have led to the development of the Learning4LIFE approach and LIFESMART roadmap.


The Managing Moments Method is based on the idea that we start, modify, continue, and expand projects based on information revealed by moments. Moments guide is in clarifying goals and choosing activities.


Becoming LIFESMART by Managing Moments


Step 1. Notice Moments

Step 2. Respond to Moments

  • Awareness: Cultivate a LIFESMART Mindset

  • Discovery: Evolve LIFE goals over time

  • Direction: Define SMART Micro-projects

  • Integration: Use capacities and Resources

  • Transformation: Monitor progress/ results

Step 3. Grow Capacities



Awareness: Cultivate a LIFESMART Mindset


Key elements of the LIFESMART mindset are:

  • Current Situation

  • Desired Future

  • Macro-projects, Micro-projects, and Moments

Goals and activities for long-term projects (macro-projects) are gradually clarified over time. Micro-projects are short-term, well-defined projects that are doable with resources at hand. Moments guide us in the choice of macro-projects and in the definition and execution of micro-project.


Discovery: Evolve LIFE goals over time


We explore and discover LIFE goals throughout our lives.

L: What do you learn daily?

I: What do you like to do daily?

F: What do you with your family daily?

E: How do you engage your community daily?


Direction: Define SMART Micro-projects


Well-defined, short-term micro-projects that are doable with resources at hand move us forward towards our long-term goals.


S: Specific

M: Measurable

A: Attainable

R: Relevant

T: Time-framed


Integration: Use capacities and Resources


We use our Six Cs to use our capacities and resources effectively in micro-projects. We grow Six Cs as we work on micro-projects.

Connections

Conversations

Clarity

Choice

Competence

Coordination


Transformation: Monitor progress/ results


We start, modify, continue, and expand micro-projects over time. At any given time, SMART projects in each category is an important indicator of progress towards long-term LIFE goals.

Initiating

Adapting

Sustaining

Extending


I am grateful to the support provided by The PhD Project for the development of the Growing Systems of Success (GSS) framework on which the LIFESMART work is based.
