What is Life-Disciplines-Projects?

Life-Disciplines-Projects (LDP) is a life-management framework designed by uwi. This framework’s main application and demo is through Obsidian, but being a framework, it can also be applied elsewhere.

LDP is an attempt redefine ones relationship with work by reducing friction and increasing velocity towards their ikigai, defined as their reason for being. It takes inspiration from Getting Things Done, Pillars Pipelines and Vaults, and Agile (Scrum, Kanban), among many others.

I have provided all of this content for free, so please consider donating to me at ko-fi when you have the chance.

Life-Disciplines-Projects are organized as follows.

LDP Organization

LDP is organized as a system of components, which allows for routine alignment of component to it’s higher context.

Resources → LDP
Tasks → Core
Life → Sense of Self
Disciplines → Life
Habits → Life/Disciplines
Projects → Disciplines

Approach and Philosophy

Build a System that Works for You: My life is not your life. LDP is a framework, the foundation that is to be built by whoever utilizes it. You should always be asking the following two questions.

Everything should be Relevant and Important: Save time and energy by working on the relevant and important.

Keep It Clear, Simple, and Small: You should be able to sit down and immediately do what you want to do. Do this by reducing friction.

"Just Enough" For Now, Polish Later: Do not get stuck on perfection. Do the bare minimum now to establish structure and viability. You can always come back later to iterate on the ideas and do polish.

Work Wide, not Deep: Work to understand the bigger picture, then start to polish and tweak the fine details. Do not perfect one component and neglact work on the rest. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
