First Secret: Life is the Flow of Actions
You are the navigator of your Brook. Your boat represents your actions and the strategy for your journey in life. Life is the flow of actions, so your actions determine who you are and where you are headed.
The secret of action is derived from Karam Yoga, or the Yoga of Action, first described by Vedic sages some 6,000 years ago. Karam Yoga is a cornerstone of Sikh philosophy after Guru Nanak five centuries ago. The Twelve Steps of Purposeful Action Framework was developed by Prem Chopra following more than four decades of experience and research and two decades of teaching management, leadership and ethics.
