Your life is a beta version

“Your life is a beta version” is not a phrase I invented but definitely the way I view, if not live life. Actually, a beta version refers to multiple versions all focused on trying to improve. The way I build my beta versions are guided by three principles Truth, Beauty, and Knowledge.

Since people began speaking, they argue about what is the Truth. For me Truth is authenticity. If you are not authentic then you are really nothing. Beauty is outcomes. An outcome is doing what is uniquely human and creating something new or renewed. Lastly, Knowledge is improvement. If Knowledge is not used to improve, then it is worthless and even worse, it is inauthentic.

Here I will share reflections and knowledge gained from my many and continuous beta versions. True to the essence of a beta release you may visit the site one day and read an outline which develops over time into a full post. You are welcome to come along… or not.
