Great Big Small Life is a model I've created to reflect different strategies that people can use to live a happy, creative, and sustainable life. Taken together, these strategies form a 6-sided yurt with 3 doors and 3 windows, like the one in this drawing.

Each door offers a different access point. The Great door is for people who are looking for ways to play and express their creativity; the Big door is for people who are looking for meaning, fulfillment, or their vocation; and the Small door is for people who are want to observe, slow down, be present, and take manageable steps. The windows connect us to nature.

This essay is about being immersed in a Great Big Small Life.
