Hammering it Out: Using a Craftsman Approach to Build a Life You Love with a Charles Collins

You life is in the hands of a primary crafts person. You...are that crafts person. Your job is to learn and make a masterpiece of your life.

Joining us today is master craftsman and author- Charles Collins.

His book The Way of Craftsmanship: The Tao of 'Life As A Craft' teaches us that Craftsmanship is an attitude of mind.

With research spanning three decades, Charles teaches us  'The Way of Craftsmanship'. Handed down over the centuries by master craftsmen and craftswomen across the world. 

We  uncover the universal principles for developing a high level of skill in any endeavor in  life, replacing the often frustrating methods of learning personal development and parenting skills by trial and error.


Find out how you can Craft a life you love... On this episode of The Light Inside.

Audience Take Away:

Charles' work demonstrates how anyone can learn to practice 'Life-as-a-Craft' to achieve extraordinary results. It is a big-picture framework for managing life topics, similar to the way we manage our occupations and professions vs. the 'hit-or-miss' results of living by trial and error. Listen to the brief 5-minute overview.

Discover how you can view 'life-as-a-craft' and become the master craftsmen and craftswomen your own lives 

While teaching the next generation skills to make a masterpiece of their own.

We show you how moving past traditional educational systems allows you to become an apprentice of learning and life.

Craftsmanship is an attitude of mind- having the skills to engage the mind in a way that utilizes all of our functions, organizing them into strategies and effective systems or processes.

We are at our best as craftspeople when the myriad systems of life are organized, taught and learned. It's those all important elements of strategy, systems, processes and execution.

The Four Phases of Life:

Apprentice- one learns to comprehend the nature of the raw materials of the craft, and the skillful use and application of the tools of the craft of life.

Journeyman- comprises the many years of work performed after Apprenticeship toward becoming a Master. It is the time when a craftsperson distinguishes him or herself by earning their way in life by their craftwork

Masterwork- characterized as the finishing or 'polishing' Phase, after years of Journeywork to distinguish oneself as a skilled craftsperson

Mentorship- the time period in the practice of life as a craft, during which the primary objective is to make accessible to those who would seek it, select masterworks, knowledge  and an account of your practice of craftsmanship as a legacy for the next generation
