[M9]: "wisdom"

Background

  • I need to always be learning from the wise and respecting the wise

  • Who is the “wise”? Anyone with a greater understanding of something than I in a particular area is “wise” to me. This means that everyone is “wise” in some way.

  • So appreciate peoples wisdom and respect it. Those who are living and those that are dead

Two Life Missions (created 2013, before this document)

Educate the ignorant

  • I want to educate the ignorant, not by giving them the answers, but by unlocking within them the mindset to empower them to come up with their own solutions. (Refer to Outwitting the Devil, Feb 14, 2014) Diversity is beautiful in it’s power and I do not wish to suppress it by teaching my own solutions...everyone has the power to come up with their own...and has the freedom to seek them or to not. But I believe that everyone should at least understand their own inner beauty and that we all are capable of greatness in our own way. But what they ultimately choose to do is, and should be, completely up to them.

    • Psychology is important here and especially my ability to understand the differences between people (personalities must be understood)

    • Understanding motivation is also very important (I need to know what motivates people and how to motivate people)

    • LEADERSHIP

  • PLAN: Develop a system to spread this message to people

    • Start a company to coach people?

      • Must first gain credibility to be successful in this endeavour

      • Must be able to mentor others on mentoring →psychology & relatability

    • Teach people what I know/learn along the way andmentor people as opportunities arise

    • BECOME A GREAT LEADER

    • TRAIN OTHERS TO BE LEADERS

Spread prosperity

  • I want to provide opportunities for people to prosper in whatever area they are inclined towards. I want to seek out individuals with a good heart that may be struggling and help them to prosper, whether through mentorship or through financial assistance.

    • Business acumen is extremely important here

    • I must first find my own prosperity before anyone will believe I could help them to find theirs

    • This is where I give people specific answers to their needs through mentoring and guidance

  • PLAN: PHASE 1: Lead a profitable life

    • Develop large positive cash flow through business and investing

      • Do not do anything just for money...it must also intersect with my mission and other goals...Money should never be the main purpose of anything. (Feb 14, 2014)

      • Must be able to create passive income effectively. This ties into becoming proficient at developing systems and being a great leader

  • PLAN: PHASE 2: Become great at spotting people and ideas with potential

  • Must be able to see the vision of others and provide a pathway for success

[M1]: “explore, and strive to reach, the potentials of life”

Background

  • This is derived from my thirst for deeper understanding of the world and what it is to be human

  • To achieve this, I need to consistently experience new things, meeting different people as well as keep reading, researching, and learning overall.

  • I need to consistently be identifying my weaknesses and converting them to strengths (below are list of worthy weaknesses to work on)

  • Since I don’t yet truly know my potentials, I need to adapt my goals to incorporate the new concepts I learn in life or else I’m just limiting the scope of my existence.

[M2]: “be a leader in society”

Background

  • This happens to be one of my weaknesses (see above), but is also something I’ve always strove for

  • I need to find ways to improve my capacity to lead.

  • Legacy is fundamental to having a satisfying life

  • I want to leave something behind that continues on in a meaningful way that reaches the masses.

    • This is more than just children

    • It perhaps is a business or some form of pioneering of something important to society.

    • Project AMPLE’s Laddice (*T)

    • Review Creative Thinkers Toolkit for leadership concepts (*T)

  • Key points:

    • This happens to be one of my weaknesses (see above), but is also something I’ve always strove for

    • I need to find ways to improve my capacity to lead.

    • Moral authority before positional authority

    • Legacy is fundamental to having a satisfying life

    • I want to leave something behind that continues on in a meaningful way that reaches the masses. This is more than just children. It perhaps is a business or some form of pioneering of something important to society.

[M3]: “awakens the best in others”

Background

  • This was added to the mission statement to reinforce my requirement of consistently positively affecting others on my path towards my own success.

  • Consistent means that I don’t deviate from it...I need to make sure I’m never negatively impacting others

  • This means I need to understand others and their differences so I know how to avoid negatively influencing them and maximize my positive impact

    • This takes patience and needs to be done very carefully (&I)

  • I want to make sure that while I’m improving myself, I am pulling others up with me and not pushing others down below me. This just so happens to be tied to being a great leader and so I have twice the motivation to exercise this as part of my mission.

  • Ben (|B,7/26/2013)

    • Sometimes Reddit has some gems: This one really affected me.

    • My personal success means nothing to me. I did not exist for the majority of time, and I will continue to not exist far longer than I ever existed. I am one mote of dust.

    • But if I raise others up, it's like a cascade. My importance multiplies each person that I drag upward with me.

    • If I get to the top of the mountain all by myself, I die meaningless to history and human advancement.

    • If I only make it halfway up the mountain, but I dragged 1, or 10, or 100 people up with me, then I climbed 100 half mountains. I covered more distance than the guy at the top by a factor of 50. My acts cascade through history and the social mass for generation upon generation.

    • My name may be forgotten, but who gives a s*** about their name?

    • As such, I aim to teach everyone I meet as much of what I know as is possible.

Alex Behavior Improvements
  • Don't be condescending to Leanne or anyone (5/28/2014)

  • Don't show off knowledge or skills (5/28/2014)

  • Spend more time observing and thinking than talking (5/28/2014)

  • Leanne thinks I need to get used to texting less and being more present

  • |A/L: 1/20/19:

    • Leanne thinks I’ve gotten better at the items mentioned above but still sometimes struggle when I think my way is the only way. In these situations, I resort to condescension sometimes. Be more aware of this and ask Leanne to call me out on it.

  • |A: 1/24:

    • Leanne expressed aggravation at me pushing her to work on the gift card status last night after work when all she wanted to do was relax after an exhausting day.

    • She feels I ignore her feelings and prioritize getting things done and thinks instead I should focus on her feelings before getting stuff done

    • Also when I give her the option to not do something, she feels compelled to do it because she doesn’t want to disappoint me. So giving her the option isn’t enough, I have to accept her decision without any sense of judging/disappointment

  • |A/L: 1/27:

    • Leanne feels like I sometimes get in my own world and it clouds my thought

  • |A/L: 2/10:

    • Leanne feels I wasn’t condescending, even though we did get into a fight

  • |A/L: 3/4:

    • Leanne feels I’m getting better but definitely in my own world lately which she doesn’t like

  • |A: 4/1:

    • I feel I’ve improved a lot with this but Tara says I have a pedantic Jesus-like ego and that I need to work on that

  • Leanne thinks I’m doing well with all of these things.

  • Leanne thinks I do better with the texting less and being more present still but the rest are good

  • Leanne thinks that Alex has been doing a good job about trying to balance his attention to Tara, Leanne, Laddice but could use some self care time, especially considering all the travel he’s doing this month.  

  • We’ve talked about not letting my tasks control me. Both Leanne and Tara agree that I need to do something about being overwhelmed with my task lists because it’s affecting my ability to sleep. I came up with some plans with their help:

    • 1) Don’t use my phone at night or in the morning if I plan to keep sleeping. Also don’t use the computer in the early morning if I need more sleep. Put my phone away from reach

    • 2) I made a master list for tracking my logs to help me plan out reducing my logging in a way that maintains the record

    • 3) I’m considering to have a one day a week planning for my daily tasks so that I don’t have to do them all daily but rather in particular days and hence can maintain the habit of doing them, just not as frequently. Make a task for this.

  • Leanne thinks I’ve been doing well lately

  • I think Alex has been doing well lately and has been helpful and sensitive to people’s feelings.

[M5]: “benefactor of good”

Background

  • I need to make sure that in my endeavors and as I succeed and gain more influence that I continue to be a force of good

  • It easy to let greed take over so I need to be very mindful of this

  • The three areas to consider are myself, other people and society

  • The decisions I make should consider all of these elements

[M6]: “achieve a high state of individualism and freedom”

Background

  • This has been an update that evolved first from desire to succeed in business, then entrepreneurship and finally to the realization that really what I want is to embrace individual and freedom and gaining influence in this world

  • Currently, the path I’m aware of that allows me achieve each of these qualities is a combination of entrepreneurship and investing.

  • The goal is to not be doing anything that I’m not passionate about. So perhaps being an employee is still possible, but need to consider how I could make a big difference in the world.

[M6-N]: Other Notes
  • Make great use of strategy and creative problem solving in my day-to-day life

    • Develop a systematic mindset while consistently seeking to improve my methodologies

      • KT Method, Ben Franklin, PDCA, Mindworks.com, Strategic decision-making (entrepreneurial training), Personal MBA

      • Start with goal, then make a plan, then act out plan

  • As Hobbs would say, freedom is given up for security in social contract theory. I did understand that ultimate freedom also yields ultimate insecurity. There needs to be some balance but do still believe that I'm capable of acquiring greater freedoms with minimal loss of security just by educating myself and building my own "empire" within empires.
