Simplified conceptual overview
rlaexp.com is a public service web site
Real Life Adventures + Exploration
Different thoughts for different times
Tremendous challenges for: Government spending, Blockbuster, HP, Yahoo,
Plus lots of individuals
Navigating first requires finding “things”
The “finding” first requires exploration
Exploration includes new Exposure
“To know something,
Where to jump next?
But precisely because there are so many different areas of importance,
Because deterioration is what happens normally—that is,
There is need to reduce the almost limitless possible tasks
There is need to concentrate scarce resources
There is need to do the few right things

“But tomorrow always arrives.
It is always different.
And then even the mightiest company is in trouble
It will have lost distinction and leadership—all that will remain
It will neither control nor understand what is happening.
Not having dared to take the risk of making the new happen,
And this is a risk that even the largest and richest organization

We can only work on and with the things on our mental radar
Imagine the outcomes for somebody in
It is a very uneven and unpredictable landscape
When we are embedded in doing something
The human brain has no natural way to bring itself
Even when it tries,
When the time comes to think beyond the immediate
When is the when?
The site provides a big picture thinking landscape over time
It is a way to see and work beyond current mental involvements
This is essential for navigating a changing world
The site is a tool for creating a work menu and considering what’s next
How do we keep our brain focused on the road ahead and
Technology is changing very quickly, as are markets and structures.
You can’t design your life around a temporary organization.”
Successful careers are not planned
They develop when people are prepared

Creating a Google site search
on Google’s site:
At the present time this is a prototype site.
There are over 500 web-pages — unique web addresses. If each page contained only 10 valuable thoughts, then there could be over 5,000 different brain-addresses in your brain-address book.
Think of everything here as a mental placeholder — a way to see and think beyond the familiar.
Seeing beyond the familiar is necessary to avoid mental stagnation and navigate a changing world — 180-degree change.
The ideas you run across aren’t just
“If you hesitate to map out your future,
Since the site is still a prototype, some pages may be less than visually appealing — it’s the content that matters.
I add, remove, and redesign content based on my own unfolding comprehension of the time-life navigation © (TLN) landscape.
… and then I move on to a new or different attention directing area.
I’ve been collecting and organizing information — full-time — for over thirty years.
New landscape features periodically emerge and existing features get reshaped — e.g. how we take, share, and manage photos.
This means that you might want to periodically revisit relevant pages — as a way to change what you’re paying attention to.
Many of the books that were available when I first started working on what I now call “time-life navigation” have gone out of print or are hard to find.
Having alternative mental landscapes is a good thing.
