Over the last 5,000 years, humankind has become the greatest success story this planet has ever seen. What we have created together is phenomenal. The man-made system our ancestors invented at the dawn of civilization has fulfilled its Purpose-we have become happier, healthier and wealthier than at any time in our history. However, if we continue to use the same system for the next fifty years, humankind will go extinct. The system is no longer fit for purpose. Its success was predicated on the dual principles of extracting capital from individuals and raw materials from the planet. For the vast majority of these 5,000 years, the ends-growth-justified these means. However, The Industrial Revolution and the internet have accelerated this philosophy of extraction to the point where the entire system is breaking down. Inequality and climate change are the two most visible symptoms of this breakdown.Now, we need to rebalance, reimagine and recreate the system so our children and grandchildren can create the next 5,000-year cycle. #Masterpiece is the ultimate guide to do this. It describes how you can extract yourself from the man-made system so you reconnect to the entire ecosystem and create your own Masterpiece-the greatest contribution you can make for yourself, your family and society. It is what you would do if you had all the time and money in the world. Your Masterpiece could be a painting, a book, or even a relationship; it could be a program, retreat, initiative, or a new business. Whatever it is, it will change your world for good.This book is for Changemakers, misfits, the crazy ones, the artists with wild ideas-anyone who has been rejected. We think different. If this is you, #Masterpiece is your ticket to be part of the Masterpiece Movement-creating the next 5,000 years one Masterpiece at a time.
