A master in the art of living…

I’m going to forever remember my son telling team k-dev that the Chateaubriand quote is possible. He’s beginning to believe that you can work and live in such a way that you don’t know when you are playing and when you’re working. My son said he’s seen this when he’s watched me do both and he’s seen this when he’s been with Brett. My God, I could die with a smile.

You see, friend, the entire point of BTL practice is to build masters in the art of living. It is our aim to model the way as best we can and hope that a few crazies catch fire. Everyday, we attempt to slow down some of the worlds most productive people and make them think deeper than wins and losses, mergers and acquisitions, and even profit and losses. There is so much more to mastery than money, material acquisition, and beating the opposition. Masters are meaning mongers. They chase someone, something, that they cherish and find great joy in the pursuit. They have found joy in the journey, all aspects of it. They find joy, even in isolation.

“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which…” L.P. Jacks

Now do you understand why our aim is oneness? Slow down and sit with this for awhile. Are you building a masterpiece worth showing your children? Your grandchildren? Are you becoming a master in the art of living?

Live hard. Love harder. Make sense?
