On behalf of The Grand Sonic, The Order of Harmonics, The Covenant, Musaria, and the Multiverse, I would like to introduce you to a new world and announce the impending launch of Legacy Command. Being that this is the first blog I am writing as “SOVRRN,” the name I took upon stepping out of the Progeny Pod on Musaria, I will focus today on what Legacy Command is, how it came about, and when the full launch might just maybe happen.
Legacy Command is a life management system that uses a custom Planner and Fantasy Card Game to gamify real life achievement.
Currently, I am the creator and sole facilitator of this system. The Planner and Fantasy Card Game components are still in progress, however, what remains to be done is almost entirely artwork and graphic design. The First Edition physical version will be available in the next 3 to 6 months. But for now, I am starting this blog and spreading the word about this life system game. This blog will cover principles of the game philosophies such as time management, productivity, creative process, mental health, inspiration, innovation, motivation, connection, fulfillment, achievement, psychology, and transformation. I would like to start collecting names and emails for PLAY TESTERS. So, if you are interested in becoming a Play Tester, please use the Play Tester Signup Form on the website.
Legacy Command is a system I have been using formally in my own life for over 2 years. Though it has undergone a series of iterations, the basic mechanics and principles have remained largely the same. Looking back through my life, threads of behavior have existed for me that sometimes did not serve me so well. Yet, as The Grand Sonic likes to remind me,
“Don’t discount the trials of your past, for they have made you who you are at this moment.”
I share a consciousness with The Grand Sonic. He is the Sonic Avatar who stepped out of the Progeny Pod with me, as a copy of me, forever linked. The Legacy Command website has more details on the relationship between myself and The Grand Sonic. I’m also writing a book about the adventure that led me to that Progeny Pod. So, when I hear his voice in my head, I tend to listen because he usually ends up being right. And it is true - what I have learned from unintended outcomes as a result of my words or actions has made me who I am today.
What purpose is served by guilt tripping myself about mistakes or bad decisions I have made in the past?
Yes, we all must learn from the past, but at a certain point it has to be BOOKS CLOSED and time for the exam. And the exam is living a good life. TODAY. Learning time is OVER. Legacy Command has become the system I use for “exam time” aka DOING LIFE WELL. It is easy to get caught up in an infinite loop of analysis paralysis when we’re not getting what we need in life. And I mean it! Obsessing over what is done and gone is EASY. It’s like laying our spirit on the ground and saying,
“Shhhhh, you’re off the hook, Deep Passion of My Soul. I’ll come up with a bunch of ways to distract us from the real problems standing in our way. You take a nice little nap.”
Then the Ego proceeds to “protect” us with it’s defensive brainwashing. Let’s go through the all-too-familiar list:
What did I do wrong?
Will I ever be good enough?
I have to be better to make sure I don’t fail.
I can’t/I should/I wish/I’ll never/I’ll always
Once I have ______ I can finally let myself ______.
(and the ever popular) WHY does this keep happening?
I could go on. But I won’t. You get the point, I’m sure.
To be clear: asking hard questions is valuable. But only if you’re willing to hear the hard answers and adjust your behavior. This is the key to personal growth. Review, integrate, and change behavior. But honestly? Personal growth is not for the faint of heart, so I don’t blame anyone who prefers a good distraction over growth. Yet still others take to the growth process like a masochistic moth to a flame. We want to learn so we can stop making the same mistakes that lead us (or someone else) to suffering. But instead, we just fly into the fire again? We come out either covered in the ashes of virtue and self-righteousness, or singed by depression and isolation. Once again, life can seem a whole lot easier to skip all of that introspection and just ignore it. Move on!
Well, I don’t know about you but that doesn’t work for very long in my experience. Neither of these habits make for a picture peaceful person, do they?
At some point, we all need some kind of framework that helps us function, rain or shine. Good days and crap days. Legacy Command has arrived to me in vi
