My name is Peter Gales and I believe that business and career can be a full and free expression of who you are and the difference you choose to make. I intend to play a role in changing the existing conversations (discourses) about “work”, and about what it means to live your life fully and completely.

As I said in my first post, I believe that there is something fundamentally unworkable about the American and possibly world approach to individual happiness and fulfillment in life. The popular culture teaches people to look for the quick fix and the magic bullet that will solve all of their problems.

I write to stimulate and encourage people to take on a different perspective to happiness and fulfillment in life, and it comes from engaging with your life as a practice i.e. the exercise and pursuit of a consciously created life. I’ll be writing about basic and fundamental principles that can help people engage with their life as a practice. In the same way that you don’t go to the gym once and expect to be fit for the rest of your life, you can’t expect to go to one course or read one book and expect that all will be well after.

No one likes to talk about the work that has to be done in your daily life, or the impact on the choices that you make everyday to the quality of the life you will lead one year, five years, ten years from now.

I do. And I intend to cause a shift in people’s relationships to words like “work,” “failure,” and “responsibility.” Wish me luck.
