Investigate

Within the second step along The Path, you are required to research/investigate the facts and information you will need and use to help you find a suitable solution to the problem you face. Likewise you will use these facts to help you bridge the gap between your current reality and your desired reality.

The key areas you will be looking at include:

  • Identifying the facts, circumstances, changes and trends related to the problem you face.
  • Gaining clarity about this data through analysis.
  • Creating links and associations between the facts in order to piece together patterns.
  • Sorting and ordering the information to help prepare it for the creative process.
