Craftsmanship names an enduring, basic human impulse, the desire to do a job well for its own sake. - Richard SennettIf it's flipping hamburgers at McDonald's, be the best hamburger flipper in the world. Whatever it is you do you have to master your craft. - Snoop DoggWith research spanning three decades, Charles Collins is continuously engaged in the study of 'The Way of Craftsmanship' - as handed down over the centuries by master craftsmen and craftswomen across the world - to uncover the universal principles for developing a high level of skill in any endeavor in one's life. From Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas, he discovered there is a clear set of practical, down-to-earth principles that transcend cultures and time, which anyone can apply to skillfully practice 'life-as-a-craft'. Life-as-a-Craft To practice the whole of 'life-as-a-craft', the way a craftsperson mindfully practices the trade of textile weaving, medicine, or carpentry, requires that the myriad activities of the 'craft-of-life' be systematically organized, managed, taught, and learned similar to the ways in which we organize, manage, teach and practice our trades, occupations, and professions. In 2012 with the release of Making a Masterpiece of Your Life, Charles introduced the Five Elements of practicing 'life-as-a-craft', based on the organizing principles found in the world's craftsmanship teachings, practices, and traditions. Making a Masterpiece of Your Life Making a Masterpiece of Your Life - the book - published in 2012, quickly became an Amazon #1 seller in the Personal Transformation and Motivational Self-Help categories. Seven years later in the Summer of 2019, 'The Way of Craftsmanship: The Tao of 'Life-as-a-Craft' - was released in the Success & Self-Help category on Amazon books. In September of that same year, season one of Making A Masterpiece of Your Life - the podcast - was released on the Apple and Google Podcast platforms and other popular locations. The following year www.MyLifeMasterpiece.com opened to people of all ages and skill levels as a resource to learn and apply the principles of craftsmanship, and the Five Elements curriculum for "Making A Masterpiece of Your Life." In Charles' own words: "If you're going to make something of your life, make it a masterpiece."So if you're ready, take out your pencils, and let's begin.Connect with Charles.Connect with Chris.START YOUR WEBSITE TODAYSupport the show (https://paypal.me/pencilleadership)
