Introduction

There are hundreds of pieces of key information about yourself and thousands of pieces of key information about the world of work that you need to research, collect and prioritize now and over your lifetime, if you want to 1) know who you are, so you can 2) (re)define and 3) (re)find your LifeWork.

When you (re)define your LifeWork in your version of A: My One Page LifeWork Profile (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM) (LW) (GD), you will soon discover that it only contains a few key elements.
