This Framework Feels Illegal to Know: ‘Life Systems Optimization’
Life gets enhanced here.
What if you treated your life like a computer algorithm?
What if you tried to optimize the major areas?
What if you focused on what matters and cut pretty much everything else?
I wonder what your life would like after a year or so. A whole lot better is my guess.
It’s worth a shot in 2023, right?
Months ago I had this idea of optimizing various areas of my life. Basically simplifying health, wealth and relationships.
Those are the big 3, the Trifecta of Living Well.
So, I want to show you an example of what I did for Health.
Big Goal: Excellent Health
System: Physical Health
- 7+ hours of sleep nightly
- Massage, stretching, recovery focus as aging
- Daily flossing
- High fiber, moderate protein, low sugar
- Fasting (either IF or 24 hour fasts)
- Whole foods 80% of the time
- Daily mobility workout
- Cardio 3x/week
- Lifting 3x/week
System: Mental Health
Subsystem: Personal growth
- Morning deep work
- 1 self help book per week
- Accountability communities
Subsystem: Stress reduction
- Default to observation when angry
- Daily meditation
- Simplify & eliminate
The idea here is you pick core tasks, things that move the needle.
Then you break them down into daily/weekly habits.
You can review your optimized system as often as necessary. I used to do it daily. Now I do it weekly.
I did a very similar breakdown for wealth and relationships. If you want to see those, shoot me an email: email@example.com and I’d be happy to send them over :)
