I am the founder of LifeWork Planning Services (LWPS).
Welcome to LWPS.
The purpose of LWPS is to provide an e-learning blogging platform where you as an individual can create and share posts about your significant lifework events and use them to develope your short and long term life and work plans to achieve soul-satisfying harmony and happiness, and/or where you as a lifework/career professional can offer your services to other LWPS members to assist them in doing their life and work planning. LWPS is being designed to help you answer questions like - "Who am I? What do I want to be, ... do? What are my gifts? What is my destiny, ... soul's code, ... life dream, ... purpose, ... calling, ... spiritual or soul voice? What is my passion, ... my LifeWork?".
This state-of-the-art platform provides for secure (private, semi-private and public) personal, professional and/or community weblogging, ePortfolio development and social networking and will soon be integrated with the National Career Development Guidelines framework (NCDG) as well as optional career cyber services such as ....
Coupled with the above stated purpose of LWPS is the penultimate LWPS goal of each user collecting links to all of the posts that describe their significant lifework events into ONE post that I call a LifeWork Portal (LWP). Here is my LWP as an example.
In the right sidebar, you will find several LWPS communities that I created. Below that are communities created by other LWPS members which I have joined. There are a few other communities that other members have created that I have not joined. I encourage you to explore these communities and join those that interest you.

On a planet with over 6 billion people, how do we find those that share our interests and passions, and how do we find work that satisfies our soul?
My vision is an application that will make that task of connecting us together almost effortless. LWPS/Elgg is one of those tools.
Imagine this. I have an idea. I go to my computer and start composing it into my blog. And while a background application is checking my syntax and spelling and highlighting errors for me to correct, another application is assembling something far more important and powerful. It is taking ever significant keyword and phrase I have written in this journal entry, merging it with all previously related journal entries and my life-profile (e-portfolio, career plan, etc.), and creating a search-string that I can use to (one-click) search the web for ALL related ideas, resources and people.
Reflection, engagement, deep learning, collaboration, work (job) matching and finding new friends are only a few of the obvious benefits.
