Life Line Analysis
(Bar Chart) 
This is a time line chart of my life from 1949 to 1980. Putting things down like this evolved over time. Looking back is as powerful a planning tool as looking forward.
Life Line Analysis
(Original Notes) 

These are the original notes (in the form of a timeline) that were the basis for the Life Line Bar Chart. It was a "deep dive" into my self-observations at that time

Life Line Analysis
This is a “Questionnaire” in the form of Boxes and Ladders – a visual diagram technique useful for organizing content in pre-scripted categories.
Reflections, Goals
(What is success ?) 

These three commentaries about things to consider in reflection, the symptoms of inner peace (goals) and the nature of success are worth reading. They have all provided inspiration to me over the years. I thank the givers: Deepak Chopra, Bobbi Spurr and Karl F. Elliott.
