At SageMy™Life we specialize in understanding the networks of people around us. Why? The quality of our life, our health and our success is not up to us alone. The people in our life play a role, too.
We’ve been researching how networks impact people’s lives, drawing on our own studies and those of others. We’ve learned that it’s important to manage networks well. When people, families and businesses do that, their lives get better, their businesses become more successful. Sometimes, dramatically better and dramatically more successful.
Through our lens, eight important networks shape our lives. In each one are people who care about us and who can help us with our intentions to create a great life, a loving family and a successful career. When times are good, these are the people we want to celebrate with us. When times are not good, these are the people we need to turn to for support.
We’re born into five networks. For that reason, we call them birthright networks. These networks are created for us by our parents. If you are a parent, you created them for your children. These include a family network, a health and vitality network, an education and enrichment network, a spiritual network and a social and community network.
As we grow up, we shape each one to suit us. We pick our own friends, for example, and we avoid people we don’t like.
When we mature, we add two more networks. For that reason, we call those coming of age networks. These include a career network and a home and personal business network.
Our lives are influenced by everyone we meet and even, but some we never will. Not everyone we meet stays in our lives forever, though. Some pass away. Some move away and we lose touch. Those who are not present in our life, we call a ghost network. Even if our time together was brief, their impact can be lasting.
In most cases ghosts are the real people who were once a big part of our life, shaping who we are today: a wonderful grandparent, a great teacher, admired career mentor or even, a beloved pet. Others might have been the ones who left us with a hole in our hearts or a bruise to heal: a mean teacher, a schoolyard bully or a teenage clique that excluded us. Some ghosts, we might never have met at all. They could be the historical figures – or even fictional ones – whose life or courage became our role models.
Our Network Technology Platform to Support Senior Care
We are building a first-in-class cloud-based platform to support seniors, their families and the experts to advise and care for them. It will help build the support networks to help seniors remain in their homes and in control of their lives. It will also help avoid the economic costs and losses to seniors, families, employers and governments for expensive senior-care alternatives.
