Live Life Insight Out is a call to action! It’s about combining life experience with powers of observation and deduction to develop an innate understanding of how human beings behave. Over time, this understanding gets imprinted deep in your mind as you develop insight – a gut feeling for things, a sixth sense on how to solve problems, and using that keen perception to make good judgments. It’s the essence of sagacity.
One way to develop insight into yourself and the world is to challenge yourself with questions or provocative ideas and chew on them—break them down, savor them, as you let them stimulate you, tease you, get you to think about life, about the fun and foibles of being human, and what that means to you. Choose from 4 featured paths to take that journey!

Don’t Think Naked: Outfitting Your Brain to Empower Your Life.
You’re naked! Sure, you’ve outfitted your body, but have you properly outfitted your mind for the challenges of the day? If not, you’re naked—mentally naked. What we wear can be empowering, but you’re leaving yourself exposed if you neglect to dress your interior self. You’re left vulnerable to self-doubt, defenseless against outside influences, stripped of self-confidence in your ability to make the right choices. Just as you need a well-balanced wardrobe for your body, you need a well-balanced intellectual wardrobe, too—filled with essential information and critical thinking skills to mix and match for tackling both daily and life-long challenges.
Don’t Think Naked! is about empowering yourself with the 3 things you need for a successful, happy life: Confidence in who you are and what works best for you, Knowledge of how to gather and assess the right, credible information you need to make fully-informed decisions, and Ability to tap into the common sense instincts you already use every day to better evaluate your options and narrow down the answers that best “fit” your life.
You’re Not Cursed: It’s a Course Correction.
Sometimes, bad things must happen to good people. It’s not that good people deserve to have bad things happen. It’s that good people never give up unless they’re forced. Good people try and try, and try, again. They compromise, accommodate, sacrifice anything and everything—even their own lives. They stay faithful and loyal and simply never give up—even when giving up is exactly what they need to do. That’s where bad things become necessary.
You’re Not Cursed! is about the good things that come from allowing a bad thing to guide you to a more fulfilling, more realized life for yourself. Sometimes, it takes a crisis, a catastrophe, a painful heart-breaking, spirit-crushing event to finally get you off your current path and headed in the direction meant for you. Course correction is not about making the best of a bad situation. It’s about recognizing that you were born to fulfill a different destiny than what you would have ever willingly, voluntarily embarked upon, if not for being forced off the path you were on by a bad experience. It is about recognizing a dead end and embracing the unexpected detours that keep you moving forward towards fulfilling your greatest potential.
Sort Out the Trash: What in Your Life is a Treasure, a Recyclable, or Just Plain Trash.
What’s in your emotional dumpster? Do you take the time to intellectually and spiritually clean house? Or are you a psychological hoarder allowing people or things to clutter up your life, waste your spiritual and financial resources, or worse—hurt you or hold you back?
Knowing who you are is key to creating happiness and success, but it means nothing if you don’t use that knowledge to distinguish what’s working for you, what could work better with a few changes, and what simply should be trashed. Are there people, relationships, jobs, beliefs, goals, or other things you keep out of habit or fear of letting go, but which have no useful value or otherwise take away from your life? Do you blindly cling to so-so or out-dated friendships, family obligations, religious rituals, corporate politics, societal expectations, yet have lost touch with why you bother? What do you neglect or take for granted, because it’s outlived its original purpose, but with a little effort could become a treasure to you again in new ways? What people and things in your life just aren’t worth hanging onto anymore?
Be true to yourself. Take the time to Sort Out the Trash!
SagaciSeeds: Teaching Sagacity Through Human Agriculture!
Human Agriculture is about treating relationships like an open field ready to plant and grow the harvest you hope to reap. Big problems in relationships don’t start out big. They start out as micro-inequities – little messages of disrespect, hostility, and bias sent from one person to another, often without knowing it. Like weeds in a garden, indulgence in negative emotions are psychological seeds that take root and destroy an otherwise healthy landscape. In contrast, positive seeds – SagaciSeeds – are conscious choices that rise above emotions to promote respect, honor, and decency in human relationships that can be cultivated into a more productive and rewarding outcome.
SagaciSeeds lists speaking engagements and workshops for your group, workplace, or organization on the principles of Human Agriculture and how to weed out negativity, while cultivating positive behaviors that enhance and sustain better relationships.
