Someone asked me about my approach to problem-solving. I explained it this way.


A Problem

Any physical, psychological or spiritual obstacle which hinders the achievement of a particular goal, objective or purpose.


The Solution:

Harrison’s Applied Game Theory An umbrella term for thousands of game-based life strategies that combine logical, rational linear and intuitive strategies for solving problems.  Derived from classical game theory, HAGT integrates these approaches with emotionally based, often irrational, and non-linear strategies linked into sets by means of “patterns” of form or content.  The goal of HAGT is to maximize love, joy, freedom, clarity of thought, emotional balance, efficiency, effectiveness, productivity, personal contentment, inner wisdom, happiness, and success in daily life.


Harrison’s Applied Game Theory; i.e. mastering the art and science of strategizing.


A strong, defining element of Harrison’s Applied Game Theory is a strong sense of ethics and strategizing built around love, kindness, compassion and the desire to create win-win situations out of what often appears to be win-lose. This is where the concept of the Wisdom Path comes into play.

The Wisdom Path is a practical secular philosophy of living, relationships, and intellectual and spiritual inquiry. It offers those with a deep hunger for visionary thinking, and spiritual sustenance guidance in these explorations through the application of game thinking. Game thinking has much to offer those who live in a “state of longing”, or are imprisoned by existential angst and emotional confusion.

With a deep and profound respect for science and spiritual inquiry the Wisdom Path is free of dogma, hierarchies, rites, rituals, ceremonies, clergy, temples, churches, or other “so called” sacred buildings or sacred texts and holy books, the Wisdom Path offers basic guidance and a psychological and emotional safety net for spiritual seekers of all types. In addition, the Wisdom Path while, respecting the importance of rational and logical thought in the making of important life decisions recognizes that academic arrogance and cognitive bias passed off as knowledge or wisdom can be a great obstacle to clarity of thought.
