'Reinvent Yourself' Journey
We all have two options at each stage of our life: do nothing or create something. Regret or dare. Keep or give. Stay passive or be active. Give up or find motivation. Be unhappy or discover happiness. And infinitely many similar and different choices that are tempting our flight or fight response.
By consciously choosing the best options for us at any given challenge, we create our Green Path through which we introspect and reinvent ourselves. As we grow, challenges are also changing; we seek new authentic experiences, adventurous horizons, meaningful work, co-creations and collaborations.
Each subsequent journey stage changes our life and opens up new possibilities for us to do something with them. Or not if we shut ourselves in our shells. What we choose and subsequently create is a powerful duo that lifts us further. On the other hand, if we do nothing, we stay stuck in the status quo - often the mainstream, delusive and wrong situation.
Setting life goals is just as important as focusing on achieving them. There are many twists and turns, waves and burns. There is no right way. Although there are many dead ends, your Path is waiting to be discovered and created. I call it the Green Path as it reminds me of spring and new beginnings. But its meaning also comes from its creative, sustainable and nature-friendly perspectives. Everyone has a chance to create their own Path - their own desired future.
The ultimate goal is to reinvent your life and career and be fulfilled! But being on a journey is an accomplishment in itself. Going through a daring process with many challenges develops valuable skills and clears your thoughts about what you want to be.
This is how the 'Reinvent Yourself' journey can be visualized.
You start with a challenge understand yourself, where you can stay lost or dig deeper into your needs. The next challenge is dare to explore, where you test your courage in interactions with the outside world and become inspired to move on to do what you love - a creative challenge. The goal is to use your creative potential to do something original and meaningful. Finally, it leads you to a challenge care for nature & people where you can stay destructive and ignorant or change and help shape a better world.
Moving between challenges can take a little or a lot of time, depending on your life situation, required skills, the effort needed and the people around you.
Eventually, you progress to change your wrong career where you invent your new job or career and actively choose the contribution you want to make. The next challenge is find your purpose as a combination of your values, creations and desired impact. Here you develop your life potential and move into design your desired life where you integrate all your goals, dreams and needs. Finally, you are ready to reinvent yourself as you feel your authentic and confident self.
Now you know what you want and how you want to feel. You can use green creative skills and a fearless spirit to succeed in whatever comes on your Path. You can describe your Path in a few sentences to a stranger, but you can also talk passionately about it for hours. You know what you want to achieve, who can help and inspire you, and what success looks like in your eyes. Now you're ready to bring it to life.
What are your values?
How do you want to feel?
What can you create?
What are your life goals?
How to do what you love?
How to find your meaningful career?
How can you change your life?
What is your life purpose?
If you seek these answers, explore the Art Of Green Path with its diverse free resources.
Try LIGHT if you want to clarify your thoughts, goals and plans.
If you are highly committed to designing and creating your desired change through a structured, focused and wholesome journey, choose any of FOUR PATHS.
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer... Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.
What Are Four Paths?
The ART OF GREEN PATH empowers your life change through Four interconnected Paths.

Four Essential Levels Of Life Change
When we want to change something meaningfully, we need to transform our energies and actions from passive to conscious choices, from closed to open outlook, and from selfish to interconnected behaviors.
In a nutshell - we feel and change INSIDE WORLD first. Then we explore and understand the INTERCONNECTED WORLD. After that, we passionately leap into the CREATIVE WORLD. Ultimately, we influence and co-create a FUTURE WORLD.
In that sense, in the Art Of Green Path, we see 4 essential dimensions of life change:
A unique path is a path or direction different from what is expected or conventional. The idea is about being yourself, exploring new possibilities, trying new things, and pursuing a course of action that leads you to more understanding, opening new horizons, waking up your life potential, and preparing you for authentic creations. For example, searching for your new path might involve significant transformations, such as changing career, becoming a parent, moving to a new location, changing a lifestyle or starting a new business. It also involves taking risks, stepping out of your comfort zone, and challenging yourself to grow and develop in new ways.
An unconventional path is your opportunity to hold your life in your hands and think clearly about what you would love to do and who you would like to be so your life makes more sense. And then act to overcome all challenges, seize all opportunities, and cherish all experiences as you create something that matters. Adventurer Ben Fogle and his hit series New Lives in the Wild are an excellent inspiration for pursuing a new path. Ben Fogle travels round the world to visit people who have given up the rat race. He spends a week with different people in far corners of the world who have chosen a new way of life: unconventional, simple, closer to nature and with more connection and purpose.
Understanding yourself and your needs is a prerequisite for all other endeavors in life - it can move you away from a life that doesn't make sense and lift you up into your new reality where everything becomes possible. It can show you how to identify and strengthen the relationships most impacting your well-being. Modern society sells us messages that are not true, such as 'buy this, and you will be happier' - to keep us in a perpetual cycle of anxiety and hunger for more. Why do so many people focus their lives on material things and money?
The Harvard Study of Adult Development has established a strong correlation between deep relationships and well-being. Its author, Dr. Robert Waldinger, says the most critical factor for happiness is having good relationships with friends and loved ones, with whom we can talk and rely on each other. Since the authors followed the participants and their descendants for 85 years, they saw that it is never too late to establish good relationships and achieve well-being. If you think it's too late to have better relationships, think again.
By embracing your unique role in the whole picture of the world, your authentic path gives you a life of awareness, happiness, and purpose. Moreover, it can lead you to deeper relationships, a green career, a green lifestyle, more contribution and more positive impact. And ultimately to your Art Of Green Path.
A green lifestyle focuses on sustainability, environmental responsibility, social responsibility and the conservation of natural resources. It is a way of living that aims to minimize the negative impact of human activities on the environment and to support health, fairness, and a good life for all people. A green or sustainable lifestyle can involve many practices and actions, including a sustainable, less meat diet, less car usage, buying less stuff, reducing waste and pollution, conserving energy and water, using environmentally-friendly products and services, and supporting environmental conservation and restoration efforts. On a personally beneficial level green lifestyle involves adopting a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, exercising regularly, walking and cycling often, helping other people and living in a way that promotes personal well-being and happiness while supporting the health and resilience of people and nature.
It can also involve engaging with environmental organizations and initiatives and participating in activities that support the conservation and restoration of natural habitats and resources. One of the best examples is Blue Zones - a project and community applying 20 years of groundbreaking research and innovation of the world's longest-lived cultures to empower everyone everywhere to live better, healthier and longer.
Reasons to be Cheerful, founded by David Byrne, artist and musician, is an excellent resource for optimism and action, full of inspiring stories of actual projects and initiatives that shape a better world. Reasons to be Cheerful - part magazine, part therapy session, and part blueprint for a better world. They publish stories of real solutions — successful endeavors to create marked changes that are improving the world today.
Conscious people are more inclined to choose a green lifestyle and focus on protecting and preserving the natural world, increasing the well-being of all people and living in harmony with the environment.
A green career is a career that focuses on social and environmental responsibility, sustainability, circular economy, and ecological systems protection. It is the idea of pursuing a job that is mindful of the natural world and the impact of human activities on the environment. It seeks to minimize harm and maximize the long-term prosperity of all sentient beings. A green career might involve working in a field that directly supports the planet's health and the well-being of its inhabitants, such as environmental conservation, environmental research, renewable energy, or sustainable agriculture. It might be focused on risks posed by artificial intelligence, promoting effective altruism, global priorities research and climate change, which 80000 Hours ranks as the most pressing world problems.
A green career requires green or greening skills, innovation, flexibility, creativity, critical thinking, and collaborative work. It might also involve working in a field that indirectly supports social and environmental protection, such as education, policy, or advocacy.
Art Of Green Path is also about shifting your career path to have a substantially more social and ecological impact.
The overall purpose of a green career should be to create a sustainable and healthy future for all by simultaneously giving us a personal sense of doing something good and needed.
Art Of Green Path Concept
The Art Of Green Path is the original concept by Four Paths embracing all skills, creativity, and intentionality that is involved in creating and living a fulfilling, connected and meaningful life. It is the idea that living a good life is not just about following a preconceived set of rules or guidelines but about using your talents, passions, and abilities to create a rich, rewarding, and satisfying life. The art of life involves finding your own path, exploring your interests and desires, choosing your meaningful career and making choices that support your well-being and happiness while making the most significant positive social and ecological impact.
The overall Art Of Green Path's goal is inspired by the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an urgent call for action by all developed and developing countries in a global partnership. They recognize the most critical global issues, from poverty and inequality to environmental destruction and biodiversity loss. In addition, they offer strategies and actions to improve health and education, reduce overconsumption, and increase renewable energy and sustainable food while tackling climate change and preserving our oceans and forests and life for future generations.
Some of Art Of Green Path values are also similar to Effective Altruism values. EA is a movement, research field and practical community that aims to find the best ways to help others and put them into practice. What unites us is a shared passion for helping others as much as possible.
Your goal should be about being present, mindful, and intentional in your actions and decisions and about living a life that is authentic, conscious and true to who you are, with great positive impact.
In this sense, the Art Of Green Path is not just about achieving specific goals or outcomes but about the process and journey of creating a fulfilling and meaningful life, in harmony with nature, with great responsibility to help all other people and protect life for future generations.
Connect Life Through Love
When you build a bridge, you feel good when somebody uses it. So let's build bridges inside us and between us.
Healthy nature heals us, feeds us and cares for us. It gives us energy and inspiration to become the most creative and responsible people who shape our authentic paths.
Job is where we spend around 80000 hours of our lives, representing our most significant opportunity for positive impact. Choosing it right makes a massive difference to our personal growth, satisfaction, and creative life contribution.
The sweet spot is to find:
1) something you're good at (uniting all your talents)
2) what you love doing (it will help you persevere)
3) where you can create positive value for the world (not work only for money)
4) where you really help people (not the opposite, like in many jobs)
5) be aware of the impact of your work on nature, all beings and natural systems as the true virtue of a conscious, responsible, ecological path (many jobs fail in this category)
The right job is possible if you understand yourself, search beyond obvious choices, choose lifelong learning and create an unconventional path that makes sense to you, people and the planet.
You have to take risks, be bold in your vision and be resilient in your reinventions. Finally, you will find your compass and create your map as you connect and collaborate with inspiring people who are already doing something meaningful.
How Is Personal Growth Connected With Sustainable Goals, And Is It Possible To Pursue Both?
Personal growth and sustainable goals are interconnected in many ways. Personal development involves exploring our passions and interests, discovering our strengths and weaknesses, and taking action to achieve our goals and dreams. By pursuing personal growth, we can become more confident, self-aware, and capable of achieving great things in our lives.
At the same time, sustainable goals are goals that are good for us and for the world around us. These goals focus on creating a better future for ourselves, our communities, and the planet. They are centered around nature preservation and protection, people's right to decent life and equality, and the economy's development not focused only on profit. Among others, they fight climate change, biodiversity loss, and the destruction of animal habitats while empowering people locally, regionally and globally with actions beneficial for their health, education, jobs, food security and overall prosperity. By pursuing sustainable goals, we can positively impact the world and contribute to the well-being of future generations.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
The 17 SDGs are integrated - they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.
Countries have committed to prioritize progress for those who're furthest behind. The SDGs are designed to end poverty, hunger, AIDS, and discrimination against women and girls.
The creativity, knowhow, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve the SDGs in every context.
Personal growth and sustainable goals are interconnected because pursuing one can help us to achieve the other. By focusing on personal development, we can gain the skills, knowledge, and confidence necessary to pursue sustainable goals and positively impact the world. And by pursuing sustainable goals, we can contribute to the well-being of others and the planet, which can, in turn, enhance our own personal growth and fulfillment.
Art of Green Path is made from this concept where personal growth and sustainable goals are interconnected and mutually reinforcing. By pursuing both, we can create an original and universal purpose, find our meaningful work and protect the nature we depend on as we positively impact the world around us.
Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet
David Attenborough and scientist Johan Rockström examine Earth's biodiversity collapse and how this crisis can still be averted.
Breaking Boundaries: The Science Of Our Planet
2021 | Nature & Ecology Documentaries
David Attenborough has been the most important voice for nature in the world for two generations. Over the past five years, he has moved very drastically from love for nature to the need for planetary stability. This journey has taken him to a much stronger engagement with climate.
Professor Johan Rockström provides his story on the Netflix documentary, Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet, narrated by Sir David Attenborough. The 75-minute production follows the scientific journey of Rockström and his team's discovery of the nine planetary boundaries we must stay within, not just for the stability of our planet, but for the future of humanity.
"Well, fundamentally, this film is about reconfiguring our whole relationship with planet Earth, so of course, that's a big ask. Still, we are at this moment where we need to reconnect our modern development, all our aspirations and dreams and what we value in life with the stability of the planet and to understand that we are now the big world with the big actors on a very small, very sensitive system that we need to take care of in its entirety. So that's the big-picture issue.
The second hope I have with the film is that it will not only inspire particularly young people to go into the quest of solutions for a sustainable, prosperous, equitable future but to really be inspired by practical solutions because the film does not only give the new insights of the risk landscape but it also shows the window of opportunity to marry sustainability with positive outcomes, and I hope that I can also inspire a new kind of engagement and even higher engagement and sustainability at the moment where we're seeing some positive momentum in that direction, so this film tries to tip over a positive momentum that we're starting to see."
These are Johan Rockström's words about Netflix documentary Breaking Boundaries.
The key message from the film is that we still have time. It also outlines four priorities for action:
> cut greenhouse gases to zero
> protect the wetlands, soils, forests and oceans that absorb our impacts
> change our diets and the way we farm food
> move to circular economies.

The 75-minute production follows the scientific journey of Johan Rockström and his team's discovery of the nine planetary boundaries we must stay within, not just for the stability of our planet, but for the future of humanity.
"All the cards need to be put on the table. The patient is sick and we must do a transparent diagnosis. We are clearly close to the point that can lead to disaster. A science based fear element is justified and important.
Activism is a necessary force for change, but it can be counterproductive if the indifferent majority thinks everything to do with the environment is about barricades, breaking down the world order and an alternative lifestyle – that doesn’t attract the mainstream. We need all forces.
Tree-huggers and frontier activists are very important but they can’t tip this whole thing over by themselves. We also need the bankers and executives. Why? Because we have only 10 years to cut emissions by half. We cannot change the economic model in 10 years. We can’t forbid everyone to do things in 10 years. We can’t re-educate whole populations in that time. We have to be very tactical."
These are Johan Rockström's words in The Guardian article where he calls for participation from all parts of society.
Johan Rockström and Owen Gaffney have also published a book to accompany the documentary. Also called Breaking Boundaries: the Science of Our Planet, and with a foreword by Greta Thunberg, the book focuses on three themes: planetary awareness, planetary boundaries and planetary stewardship.
An accessible summary of the planetary emergency and how to turn things around, from authors whose work is the focus of a new Netflix documentary narrated by David Attenborough.
On the brink of a critical moment in human history, this book presents a vision of “planetary stewardship” – a rethinking of our relationship with our planet – and plots a new course for our future.
The Planetary Boundaries
The Planetary Boundaries concept presents a set of nine planetary boundaries within which humanity can continue to develop and thrive for generations to come.
1. Stratospheric ozone depletion
2. Loss of biosphere integrity (biodiversity loss and extinctions)
3. Chemical pollution and the release of novel entities
4. Climate Change
5. Ocean acidification
6. Freshwater consumption and the global hydrological cycle
7. Land system change
8. Nitrogen and phosphorus flows to the biosphere and oceans
9. Atmospheric aerosol loading

Gratitude and Creativity: The Power of Appreciation and Imagination
Though it sounds logical and emotionally balanced, even simple, there is a long path to come to this profound realization that life is beautiful and unique, no matter our surroundings and consequences. Most of the time, we are our own biggest enemies who don't allow us to see everything we have but make us anxious about everything we still want. This deprives us of gratitude and organic growth. Life can be lived in many different ways, challenging us to find our own path. This is good as long we don't suffer from our own desires. As soon as we can see our fleeting life both as a true gift and a possibility for creation, we can open ourselves to the true purpose of life.
Three things I am most grateful for:
1) Being healthy and creative
