Welfare: from the Old English – to fare well, get along successfully, prosper.
If you’ve gone through gathering and aggregating ideas this is the point at which you’ll probably confront the same problem I do every year: there are too many possibilities.*
Bhargava’s third step is elevating and involves identifying the things all the gathered and aggregated elements (values, talents, significant experiences and energies) have in common, not in order to generalise, but to highlight their uniqueness.
For the purpose of replying to our two questions, this translates into identifying what are our most enriching environments in which we prosper and flourish.
When this happens, we’re in the best place to help others.
