Clients and friends would often ask “What is Livology?” Our our answer was always the same, “we are not sure,” but every time we said the domain name we both felt a twinge of something big.
We purchased the Livology domain name nearly ten years ago. That same week, Ron ordered a custom license plate frame that said www.livology.com and he drove around with that on his car for nine years before we had any idea what Livology was or could be.
We tried to fit various business ideas into the word because at times it felt uncomfortable not to know, but nothing fit perfectly. Nothing was big enough or expansive enough for such a great word, until now.
The study of living engulfs us every day and has brought us to a new place. Livology is a product of passion. It started as a way to stay connected and reflective and has evolved into a way of living. Where once we focused so intently on making a living, and fit life in where we could, we are now focused on making a life, and making a living is born from that place.
Thank you for being a part of the journey and for sharing your knowledge along the way. That very exchange is what brought about this new site, as we continue to learn and share with you, from you, and about you, during our travels.
We hope you will find the new site more easily navigable and we look forward to hearing your ideas for making it even better. We will continue to offer our observations from the road as we travel, and we will begin to offer something new. Many of you have asked for suggestions and daily practices for living more deliberately.
What are the Livology Daily Livits?
Our Daily Livits will deliver practices and concepts right to your in-box for those of you wanting to deepen your study along with us. They will correspond with the blog topics for the week and they will look something like this:
Today I am deliberate about taking action in the direction of a dream I have for myself.
- What is something you wish for in your life? Write down one thing. Make sure you simplify it and it is pure and clear. Write down one emotion you believe you will feel when this wish comes true. Focus for 60 seconds on basking in that emotion. What does it sound like and look like? Who is with you? Take that feeling into your day and watch what happens.
Today I am deliberate about taking action in the direction of a dream I have for myself because I know that my ability to feel the fulfillment of this wish NOW is the most productive action possible.
