You want to know if you are on the right track?  Here is a set of guidelines for knowing if we are on the right track.
  • The right track is the one that leads toward greater and greater health.  [It is not the one that leads toward normal.  “Normal” is a pretty low standard of health.]
  • Health is optimized by creating what we need, recognizing that what I need is not the same as what I want.  [“Wants” are objects and outcomes.  “Needs” are qualities of a relationship.]
  • If I am making choices that cost me what I need in order to give others what they want, I am on the wrong track.
  • If I am making choices that create what I want at the expense of what others’ need, I am on the wrong track.
  • When I make choices that move me toward what I need such that others also get more of what they need, I am on the right track.
