Structures by definition give shape to and support our life.
- Architectural structures
We can associate certain structures with particular locations: the Leaning Tower of Pisa or the London Eye, for example. These constructions impact on us as they either blend in with the surrounding buildings or stand out, perhaps for their audaciousness and oftentimes for their beauty.
- Mental structures
Our mindset, our mental structures, influence our everyday life in a similar fashion. We might be the type of person who likes or needs everything to be highly organized and clearly structured. Alternatively, we could prefer spontaneity of thinking and appreciate a more carefree way of dealing with challenges and tasks.
- Development structures
Within this category of structures we can include those items designed to help us reinforce and maintain ways of being. The knot in the handkerchief is one such structure. Likewise we could use a post-it note on the fridge door or set an alarm notice on the mobile phone. In each case the structure helps us to reach the point in which our desired habit becomes just that, a habit.
