Analytical Personal Development Framework.
This is meant to be a condensed version of all of PD (Personal Development). Crazy right? Well, not to end all other PD, but rather, once you understand this model then you'll be able to take any PD advice and know where it fits in one model and tie it down, so its easier to keep track of everything, and understand what's happening to you as you make progress and have a better understanding of how to apply it to yourself. This is a work in progress, and is still rough.
My goal for this thread is that you would be able to take any PD advice and go "Wow! That's great advice, that's just the same thing as saying [ insert here various sentences about Invariant Representations, thalamus, hippocampus, cerebral cortex]..." AND THEN be able to relate that to the real and physical feelings inside your body and mind so that you can implement that advice very quickly and efficiently. Also to make you realize that if you apply basic concepts to yourself at a high enough level, that large chunks of personal development are automatically going to be taken care of, so that you don't have to worry about improving on several small things.

7/5/07 Typed up "How not to be a headless chicken"
6/14/07 Finished study abroad by bungee jumping off of Macau Tower, highest in the world. I'm thinking about stuff in terms of systems. I'm going to share my life outline system soon. The "social tank" is the best advice I've given myself. Also been reading about left and right brain stuff, and figuring out how to blast through things that are not creative but need to be done. I can see that I'm influencing many bloggers who participate in these forums, I guess I ought to start my own to not miss out.
5/24/07 Got back from traveling to Beijing. Wrote a post of what I'm thinking about and what procrastination is in this model.
5/14/07 Got back from traveling to Guan Zhou. Taking a dive into the wonderful world of cybernetics and "synergetics"
Practitioners of cybernetics use models of organizations, feedback, goals, and conversation to understand the capacity and limits of any system (technological, biological, or social); they consider powerful descriptions as the most important result.
5/8/07 Being creative
about how to put in the missing pieces of Steve's light/dark worker and Subjective Reality, external world influencing internal wold and vise versa (creativity vs action (at different degrees)) and 2nd law of thermodynamics/evolution/information theory/heat death and QM uncertainty vs classic physics in relation to free will, procrastination, good thoughts vs bad though in relation to society, polarization, psychic stuff, prediction, planning, and creativity all together and how to Get Stuff Done in the best way (what it means the best in different situations), and if humans had unlimited energy/time/resources to spend what would our DNA/evolution/society inspire us to do with it, and zoning out letting my brain recharge after frying it too much yesterday.
5/6/07 Creativity is the core of Personal Development. SEE #12 in the TOC below.
5/6/07 I need to ground this back down to reality again, or it will be hard for people to believe. Its getting to be my own little religion. Its good for those who believe but useless for those who don't believe. bla bla... and stuff about faith.
5/4/07 Added a huge post translating Steve's excellent "Motivation for Smart People"
- See article #10 in the TOC below
5/3/07 Just been adding new insights to this thread. I say a little bit more of how law of attraction works, how creativity works.
4/29/07 Going to be treating this thread more as log of my energy and mood, and my experience with applying my model to myself. I am shifting my effort to figuring out a really productive life outline that I can incorporate long term plans with short term plans.
4/26/07 Been thinking about "the human algorithm" on a high level, in more of AI terms. I've written several other post here in this forum, but they are more fuzzy explanations, but still consistent.
4/20/07 Lol. I believe in God again. Though in a different way. Added a link talking about fear. Defined FEAR in the dictionary.
4/18/07 I typed the basic definitions of everything in two post. See the TOC in the history post.
Feel free to muck up this thread as much as possible.
Just wanted to say that learning Steve's insight on Polarization gave me the nudge that I needed so I could move along to do this. A table of contents of some sorts for this thread (periodically updated. Also many post in here not in this TOC)
: What I'm going for in this framework The core ideas are based on the book called "On Intelligence". There is a company called Numenta apply the ideas in software.
This article on the Neuroscience of Leadership
also agrees with this model, discussed in this thread
. Why I'm currently putting this framework into a thread
Read them in order to get the most benefit. The concepts build off of each other. And then read them again.

1-Who I am, my experience with observing internal state
2-My level of conciousness as defined by Steve Pavlina
4-Brain Architecture and Consciousness flow
5-Why the feeling of procrastination occurs / Brain reorganization and transition time
6-The Ease the pain of transition when trying to learn a new skill/start new habits/installing new beliefs
7-Get over fear/analysis paralysis, [explained in a kinda fuzzy way]
8-Summary of how high conciousness happens and basically everything
[super condensed and hard to read right now]
9-We all have the same goal
10-HOW TO HAVE MOTIVATION
(for huge goals)
11-Make motivation to do daily task
(like I used this method to start getting out of bed instantly instead of taking 30 minutes. only works though if you have an inspiring and discreet life purpose in your working mind though... should explain that...)
12- Creativity is the key to Personal Development
Also goes along with Learning but not doing
(I like to use the free program FreeMind to make my life purpose IR more discrete)
13-Why actually following your plans leads to stress/uneasiness and unmotivation to plan again
(and therefore need a strong life purpose/consistent hierarchy/motivation to have a reason to push through the pain)
14-Some randomly translated quotes
(kinda useless right now) READ THEM AGAIN
. It will all make more sense this time around. You'll pick out something that you missed the last time. [the higher order IRs represented here will become more discrete each time you pass through you mind the same lower order IRs]
Then read this thread in a linear fashion because there are some interesting pieces in this thread I have not linked here.
