Context v Content

We can understand the very root of all inherent problems by understanding the difference between content and context.

Context represents the overall field of information that gives content its meaning.

Content is the details of a particular situation.

Context is the overall field from which the details arise. Context sets the meaning for content.

Without context, content has no meaning.

A man purchased a carpet factory. He went to the local city hall and shared his ambition of completely carpeting the city so that no one would be uncomfortable walking in the city. A wise council member stood up and said why don’t you just make carpeted shoes?

A healthy mindset requires an understanding of what works within a ones context.

Here are a few questions you can use to help identify context for life.

1. What is it that gives my life meaning?

2. What do I value?

3. If you were to remove it from my life, would my life still have meaning?

4. How do I or will I share what I value with others?

With clarity of context, meaning, values and purpose become self evident. One is then able to share with the world what one is.
