Boston Metaphysical: The Scourge of the Mechanical Men on Kickstarter

All of us are building something in this game, but what foundations are we dropping down first? The start of the year is a good time to think broadly about what you want out of the coming 12 months and this is why I always lay down an Annual Theme for things first. In this session, Ryan K Lindsay unpacks what an Annual Theme is, how it can build clarity for your mind, and what avenues it might help you explore.


Highlights of this Session Include:

  • Annual Themes explained, and why they will matter to you?
  • Ryan takes you through his last 4 Annual Themes and what they mean to him.
  • Analysing other pros through the Thematic Prism: How would you describe the journey of others?
  • Knuckling down in 2018: How to choose your theme and what to do with it?
