Here is a quick summary of the lecture using the new book. MIAW ( I slightly edited the quote below.)

Control is simply cooperating with reality with conscious intent

Capture: write it down
Clarifying: what does this mean to me?
Organizing: put it where it goes
Reflecting: look through the whole
Engage: Do

Perspective

Purpose/ Principles – 50,000 How: how do I want to operate as a human being?

Goals – 30,000 Feet What do I want to accomplish both long term and in the next two years?
Responsibilities – 20,000 Feet What do I have to do
Projects – 10,000 Feet

System: build, fill, use
