Setting a reminder is an act of composition

Setting a reminder on your phone is an act of composition: deciding and initiating that a certain thing is to happen – and, literally, a sound is to be played – at a certain point in the future.

Setting multiple, even many, such reminders creates a polyphony, a polyrhythm of intentions. Such an approach lends itself to systematization and automation.

Taking a systematic, flexible and thus generative approach to handling our  intentions, commitments and observations is to move towards a life in which these can begin to resonate with each other: a move towards integrity and growth.
