Writing project wishes
WOOP each project? I think not; I woop methods to use them, not results; WOOP creates recipes, not dishes.

PROJECT, even days: OPW.
PROJECT, odd days: NACOS.

What gets your attention?
What human needs or problems are addressed?
What questions do you have?
What solution or hope does it offer?

What does it say that we need to obey?
What would a camera see if this happened?
Who needs to hear this?
What are the actual steps that I would take?
