Cards on the table

STRATEGY 1: Wholeness

Is when you define who you are though more than one of your component layers. As I presented above: I am a graduate, a dog owner, a volunteer, a friend etc. I am not the perfect student, but I am one of the best in my university, I am not the perfect mom for Yuri because there are days when I would ask my mother to help me, like going out with him for a walk but I give him as much love as I can.

STRATEGY 2: Perfection

Is when you identify yourself with only one of your sub-structures. Is when you give 180% to only one of your life dimensions. This is usually the path of geniuses, of outstanding people. Why? Because these are those people who would devote their life to one purpose. In this category fall individual such as scientist, professional sportives, monks etc. If you chose this path it means you are going to be outstanding, one of a kind, but you are not allowed to fail because otherwise there will be nothing left out of you. You define who you are through only one variable. Furthermore, you will have to give up everything else. Our time and energy are limited thus if you put all in something there will be none left for social life or family.
