Engineer

Within the forth step along The Path, you are taking the solutions and ideas you have generated in the previous step and developing a plan for the implementation of this solution/s to help you overcome the problem/s you face. To help with this process, imagine yourself as an engineer — who is a skilful contriver or originator of something — undertaking the process of skilfully or artfully arranging for an event or situation to occur backed by a strategic plan of action that will help you bridge the gap between your current reality and your desired reality.

The key areas you will be looking at include:

  • Selecting your best solution and ideas using a specified criteria.
  • Envisioning a set of scenarios that will help you implement your solution.
  • Evaluating the scenarios and choosing the best options for moving forward.
  • Crafting a plan of action that will help you bring your idea to fruition
