Personal Synthesis

The materials presented here are grouped in four categories. Each category includes 16 areas (topics). Introduction to Personal Synthesis, the map, and the first area in each category are FREE – check them out!

If you find materials interesting and useful you can purchase the access to all of them. In addition, you will get bonus materials that include the exercise toolbox, recommended reading and films, an extra overarching area that is not included in the map, and you will be able to download all the materials as PDF files.


The amount of information we have at our fingertips is amazing. You may know about evolution and creation, who won at Waterloo or figured out E=mc2, the names of footballers and politicians, how to drive and use the computer… but how much do you know about the areas of life that make up your everyday experience?

This is what you can find here:

  • how to handle emotions
  • make decisions
  • overcome fears
  • cope with challenges
  • communicate effectively
  • form and sustain relationships, and much more

Following materials provide the essential knowledge about all basic areas of human life. These areas are also organised in a map that shows the relationships and connections among them (hence the word ‘synthesis’ in the title).

The Map

Life experience is very complex and diverse. So, we started from locating the underlying building blocks that life events and experiences are made of (for example, feelings, thinking, decision making, motivation, basic types of relationships etc.). This has several advantages:

  • There are a limited number of such basic areas (whereas there is an unlimited number of life situations and experiences that combine them), so it is manageable.
  • We cannot deal successfully with complex issues if their underlying components are not addressed. Take, for example, smoking. Developing this habit depends on many factors such as our relationship with pleasure, self-discipline, susceptibility to influence, stability, gratification and so on. If there is just one weak link, it is unlikely that you can be in control of the habit (needless to say, you can find all these factors in Personal Synthesis).
  • Finally, these basic areas enable endless combinations that can be applied in any situation, so you can use them in a way that fits your personality and circumstances.

These areas, of course, do not exist independently; they relate to each other. So, in addition, each of them have its place within an overall structure – a map of the territory. The map will enable you to discover connections that are meaningful for you and be creative with using your knowledge of various areas.
