The session was focused on the process of designing a ideal wallet but the twist was that we were not designing for our self rather we were designing an ideal wallet for our partner.
Step one is to empathize with the partner and understand their requirement of a wallet. What all do you use the wallet for, what all features you need in a wallet, what are the things you keep in a wallet. Do you have more cash, coins or cards. What are you colour preferences, Do you keep it in your purse or in your pocket and so on.
Each day is a gift full of possibilities, let's live it!

We all have dreams, - Dream for self, like I want to be successful, want to be an artist, to look smarter, etc. We dream for family, like all in my family to be happy. Dream for country like gender equality, no poverty, more money, my country to be like Singapore. Dream for the world, like peace, compassion, more trees and so on

Choices are "what I want to do". Non choices are "what I have not explored yet". Every time I make a choice, I leave some choices...I chose to do carpentry, I am leaving out cooking or reading a book. And that's what we experienced in first week of summer.
"I am able, I can choose and leave out what I don't want do". The invitation was to be aware of what one is choosing and what one is leaving ( non choice).
