Sometimes, in fact, you should be the smartest person in the room, at least in your field of knowledge. And every once in a while, when you're the smartest person in the room, you may not be able to find another room, even though you'd like to.
This guy has a few degrees from fancy universities so he must know what he's talking about.
Quantified self is a discipline of self-tracking for the purpose of self-awareness and personal improvement.
People have been tracking themselves for hundreds of years through journals, introspection, and observation. Regular self-tracking of some specific behaviour can help you create a baselines that you can use to track your progress. Joining the quantified self movement allows me to take better care of my well-being and help me achieve my goal of living a healthy, long, and meaningful life. Many people in America come home overwhelmed by all the information they have received during the day and stressed out by all the little problems they had to deal with. The alternative is to use 20-30 minutes a day to meditate or use any other form of focused attention exercise that helps you relax. A growing number of cheap consumer gadgets are providing data for people interested in a€?quantified selfa€?. If you plan to record the frequency with which your behaviour occurs, be specific about it. If you are going to use some kind of scale to measure your thoughts, behaviours, or emotions, make sure you know what each number means to you. If you want your measurement data to be accurate, think of how you can use technology or paper to track something as soon as possible as well as how you can automate the process so that you don’t have to rely on your discipline too much. The duration of an event or experience may also be relevant, and can also be a reliable measure. The Quantified Self Forum is a place for the community to discuss any topics they want. We all have something we want to improve upon – an area of our life that could use a little work. Think about the areas in your life that you’d like to improve on, and group them into two categories: short-term and long-term.

Most of us procrastinate at one time or another with things we don’t like to do and some of us procrastinate habitually for all kinds of things.
This week I made my first videos for Youtube and posted one on this blog and the others on Facebook.
For years we’ve said that procrastination is due to laziness, fear of failure or fear of success, and a number of other deep seated emotions.
It will at least bring to your attention  things you need to do that you’ve been putting off. Irene Conlan has a master's degree in nursing, She taught nursing at Arizona State University, served as Director of Nursing Administration at St.
I get it, you're supposed to always seek out people that you can learn from instead of coasting on what you know.

Again, I understand the message about a group being collectively smarter than the individuals comprising it.
The Ancient Greek aphorism a€?Know thyselfa€? is one of the common ways to explain quantified self movement.
For example, Benjamin Franklin improved his character by reviewing his day to see if he has followed one of his 13 virtues, which he developed at age 20 and continued to practice in some form for the rest of his life.
Observations of behaviours, thoughts or feelings made at the time they occur are more reliable than tracking them at a later time estimates. I believe that one of the main drives in human beings is to strive for self-actualization or the motive to realize onea€™s full potential. Self-tracking allows me to see where I am now in relation to where I want to be in my life.
There was a time when I used to go to the gym and take martial arts classes but today I keep things simple. It is also a time when many people are stressed and depressed because they are unable to adapt to changes around them.
Most people take care of their stress by watching TV or eating food, both of which can make you feel good. I practice active mindfulness based stress reduction to help me relax, clear my mind, and find solutions to problem in my life. In science, politics, medicine and many other spheres, data is collected to improve effectiveness and efficiency of something that works well or change something that does not work. By collecting my own personal information I am able to better understand myself and make positive changes in my life. This technique from positive psychology allows me to review my day and remember all the good things that happened during that day.
For example, if you want to improve your temper management, what would you want to include in a€?losing your tempera€??
For instance, if you plan to measure your emotions, you can set your scale so that zero means that you are not feeling anxious at all, and 10 means a€?as bad as you could possibly imagine feelinga€?.
If you use DayOne App on your Mac or iPhone, you can setup automatic reminders to write down your observations. You have to discipline yourself or set an automatic reminder to observer you experiences (observation). Our goal is to gather and organize the worlda€™s collective self-tracking resources in one place. For example, if you’re aiming for better physical health, lace up those sneakers and go for a walk or run, and make a plan to work exercise into your weekly routine. If you’re dreaming of getting that degree but think you don’t have the time, start with one course per semester. Some are not even aware of how many or what things they are “putting off until a better time.
I would like to tell you that as soon as I was encouraged to make them for the purpose of marketing I smiled in assent and and got right to it. Luke's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix and served as Assistant Director of the Arizona Department of Health Services for the Division of Health Care Facilities and Emergency Medical Services.
When you get to a certain level, it's not as easy as it sounds to find people smarter or more capable than you, at least in many companies.
People who are interested in self-knowledge through self-tracking usually want to change or improve something about themselves.

3 I want to travel the world, connect with people, improve myself as a human being, and continue contributing to the evolution of our society even when I am 90 years old. I work out 3-4 time a week mostly using my own body weight, jog, and walk as often as I can.
During the time of Jesus Christ an average person probably had to make 5-7 important decision during their lifetime.
However, stress management through TV and eating can lead to bigger mental and health problems. If you already have a method to help you relax then start using it, if not, then now is a good time to learn one, and start practicing. Use this observation to develop new understandings of your behaviours or problems (reflection). Neither a cool gadget nor a well-designed iPhone App will be useful if you do not know why you want to quantify yourself.
Perhaps you’re struggling to find the motivation to go back to school, or start a new career path. The fact of the matter is that I simply don’t like doing that task, even though it needs to be done. If you are a procrastinator and your procrastination is interfering with your life in a significant way, I encourage you to learn more. One of the best ways to do this is to understand where you are now and where you want to be.
This is why one of my goals is to live longer by taking care of my mental and physical health. After doing my own research and trying different things, I came to a conclusion that to maintain a fit body I don’t need a gym membership. Exercise gets blood to your brain, bringing it glucose for energy and oxygen to soak up the toxic electrons that are left over.
By focusing my attention on the most important parts of my life, I am able to track changes and make improvements. Not only do I reflect on how my day went, I also train my brain to focus on the positive aspects of my life. First, establish a clear purpose for self-tracking, then figure out how you are going to do this, and only then research what you can use to maximize your purpose.
A good starting place is this article that appeared in the Obwerver, the publication of The Association of Psychological Science.
What I need instead is a clear understanding of why fitness is important and how I can use basic exercises to keep myself fit.A  Nowadays, it usually takes me 25-40 minutes to complete my exercises without a whole gym a€?rituala€?. As for reading, I mostly read non-fiction books during the day and fiction before I go to sleep. Facebook, Twitter, Email, TV, news, books, work, family problems, traffic, and many other things contribute to a stressful day.
Can you think of a time when you have felt quite a bit more than a€?moderatea€?, but not as extreme as a 10?
