While the things you do are projects, you are a project, too.

I think the key to transforming your life is to be aware of who you are.”
— Deepak Chopra

Our brains are often compared to computers, and this is not accurate. It is more accurate to say our minds are like software. In this sense, and for the purposes of our personal development, it would be valuable if we could apply the best practices of software development to the development of our personalities.

We need two methodologies, one that’s practical and another that’s spiritual. We’d like to combine the two, but cultural forces work against it. Many of our personal struggles result from our being caught trying to reconcile the two: the options we’re given versus the choices that are meaningful to us.
