Your Life Curriculum

Charles Collins has spent more than three decades researching the world of traditional workshops, and their pursuit of high-quality craftsmanship as the guiding force in their work, and as a model for crafting a masterpiece of our own lives.

In Life Crafting: A Master's Journal, the newest book in the Life Crafting collection, Charles has condensed the lessons from this ancient way of working into a simple, easy to follow framework that anyone can apply to guide and improve our personal lives, and the work we do in our trades, occupations and professions.

Life Crafting: A Master's Journal scheduled for completion in 2024, is the companion guide to 'Your Life Curriculum' the first book in the Life Crafting collection released in 2012.

 'Your Life Curriculum' - will help you organize everything you have and will learn in your lifetime, into five master categories called the Five Elements: 

  1. Family and Personal Heritage 
  2. Family and Household Management 
  3. Family and Personal Finance 
  4. The Human Being 
  5. Tools for Living

It's like having the master library of your life at your fingertips. "What You Learn, Makes You Who You Are".

Excerpt from Life Crafting: A Master's Journal

Life Visioning

"What do you see (vision) yourself doing most often in your daydreams and night dreams? Are you climbing mountains, or nursing someone back to health? Making speeches to an audience, or writing at a desk?

The thing you see yourself doing most often in the workshop of your mind, that you ‘envision’ as the pursuit of your life, may be the same activity you are actually performing in the world. If so, you are likely feeling aligned between your inner-self and your outer-self.

However, there are times in our lives when our 'vision' of who we see ourselves to be, and what we are occupied doing out of necessity and circumstances, is not aligned with the vision we have for ourselves in the workshop of our mind. It is one of the oldest stories in human history. 

To turn a vision of oneself into a tangible result requires skill, and the right tools for the job. This is Making a Masterpiece of Your Life."
