EP 87 - Micro-Attention Commitment
After having been the first person in the world to track their Macro-Attention 24/7 for over a year (as of Aug 15, 2019), I’m committing to tracking my Micro-Attention. I am studying my own attention to support others through the emerging Attention Economy, as part of my much larger effort to eradicate the problem of Regret from our lives.

EP 86 - Brainstorming for Attention Year #2
Mike Pratt (a good friend) and I reflect on what I learned from tracking my attention 24/7 for 1 full year (Aug 2018-2019). We then brainstorm what should be next, and conclude the following evolutions: micro-attention (thought) tracking instead of macro-attention (context/action), regular documentation of my journey and how I'm feeling emotionally (the whole point, really), tracking my emotional state (thinking 4 daily scores for 4 core emotion dimensions: Joy/Sadness, Trust/Disgust, Anger/Fear, Surprise/Anticipation), creating free self-guided documents to help others achieve "Good" results while scaling my impact and generating interest in Mastery (paid consulting services for individuals and organizations), then reflecting on what's working and iterating. Let's see how this goes!

EP 85 - Lecture: Save Years with Sentience
IMPORTANT: If you get value out of this one-of-a-kind talk on fulfilment and regret-proof decisions, PLEASE comment your answer to this question: *** β€œHow much longer would you need to live to be willing to forget these insights on fulfilment and this process of making regret-proof decisions?” *** Your answers mean the WORLD to me, as I measure the value of my life as the time I save in yours, and these ground-breaking insights/methods could save you YEARS of your life! I’m trying to live a β€œFully Given Life”! Note that despite the question asking for a number, the answer is subjective. Only you get to decide how valuable this is to you. I will graciously accept any answer you offer and I’d love to support your ambitions any way I can. Please Like, Subscribe, and Connect. I will always try my hardest to save you more time than I ask of you. Email: Info@sentientfuture.earth @sentientfuture on every major social platform Direct links are on my mobile site: Http://SentientFuture.onuniverse.com On July 3, 2019, I returned to the University of British Columbia (UBC) to deliver a talk titled, β€œSave Years with Sentience” to current students in the program from which I graduated in 2007, Engineering Physics. The talk achieved two goals: 1) teaching the audience how to think about fulfilment in each of their lives in a practical, actionable way, and 2) guiding the audience through a process of defining/weighting what each valued in life such that they could use it to make regret-proof decisions and balance their short-term schedules in a fulfilling way.

EP 82 - One-Decision Life
WHY are you here? The ONE and only decision you must make. - Who you are; - Where you're going; - How you'll get there; and - What will you do... ... will ALL evolve with time. Once you decide why you are here, every decision you encounter will already be made, because your criteria will have already been set. Rise above temptation. Rise above the drama, the noise, the irrelevant to why you're here. Live intentionally or suffer the excruciating pain of regret.

Interview - Sydney Centell
Today I interview Sydney Centell, a California-based life coach who shares what coaching is (and is not), what problems it solves, and how it's her version of employing her natural skillsets.

EP 77 - A Fully Intentional Life
Saved 7 YEARS in others' lives, Life Goal 1: "Fully Intentional Life" DONE! πŸ•™ As of Jan 1 / 2018, 81% of my life since birth had been scheduled. I'd lived it intentionally (per my values). 19% (55,203 hours) had not. Having had no plan for that time, it became my Intentional Living Deficit. πŸ•™ As of Jan 1, I stopped adding to the deficit, having begun to schedule and track 100% (24/7/365) of my Time (and now Attention!). πŸ•™ Life Goal 1? - Live a "Fully Intentional Life" by creating 55,203 hours of intentional time in OTHERS' lives, per what THEY value, and reduce my deficit to ZERO. πŸ•™ In less than ONE (1) year, I've saved over SEVEN (7) years (61,395 hours) in others' lives, per what THEY value, reported by THEM! In this progress report, I'd helped my client Stefan save 2 YEARS (17,520 hours) of his life over the course of a deep, 3.5-hour conversation, according to him. πŸ•™ This milestone means SO much to me that I'm crying tears of JOY! 🀧 πŸ•™ But I'll NEVER be done. Life Goal 2? A "Fully GIVEN a Life": πŸ•™ Create an 80-year (~700,000-hour) SURPLUS of Intentional time in others' lives (roughly my Life Expectancy). TIME is our universal currency, and I'm giving all of YOU the equivalent of my life, for what YOU value, by offering guidance on how to define what YOU value and live accordingly. πŸ•™ Thank you for your time and attention. I will ALWAYS strive to be worth it. Until next time... πŸ•™ Live Intentionally

EP 67 - Soul = Network of Selves at Different Times
EP 67 - Soul = Network of Selves at Different Times. A breakthrough in v2.0 of the Sentient Worldview. Initially struggled with soul's seeming indivisibility. Added dimension of Time to resolve the problem. See our Selves at Different times as different from our present Selves, worth knowing, and worth doing right by. Can be done specifically/practically while maintaining the major themes of the "soul" in philosophical literature. Reminder, "soul" used as a category name here for simplicity/familiarity regarding personal parts of life often associated with individuality/personality. Makes no assumption of an actual soul, as that is not currently a widely accepted scientific belief.

EP 63 - Pride
Pride is to your goals as Fulfilment is to your process. Rather than maximize it like you do fulfilment though, pride is about balance. Balanced pride is self-confidence and self-reinforcing. It boosts your rate of progress through positive feedback without you slowing/stopping either due to basking in your own glory or due to wallowing in self doubt.
02:30

EP 62 - Regret
Regret is the pain we feel when we reflect on our past and wish we had done something differently. It can come from your decisions or your actions, but these are separate from the outcomes. Regret CAN be eliminated. Learn how!

EP 57 - Legacy
Legacy is leaving value for others. Our universal currency is time. To maximize your legacy, measure how much you 1) increase others' life expectancy, 2) save others' time, and 3) increase the quality of others' time. My target legacy: 1) unlock enough of others' time to offset the 6.3 years of my 33.2 so far that were not scheduled/intentional = "net positive life" (good legacy), or 2)... to offset my entire life expectancy (~80y) = "fully gifted life" (better legacy), or 3)... to offset as many equivalent lifetimes as possible = "multi-gifted life". Think about your legacy in the context of the time you will unlock or improve for others. What will your legacy be?

EP 55 - Attention
Paying attention to what has our attention, instead of paying attention to our actions. Explores attention as the measure of the quality of the time we spend. Time differs from money, as currency, in this concept of quality. There is a huge opportunity in mastering our attention, when everyone else wants it.
04:42
December 21, 2017
EP 54 - Speed
Is our default working speed optimal? Can we afford to speed up our mundane routines and unlock time for accomplishing the goals we truly value? Working faster is more time-efficient, but is it necessarily less energy-efficient? If we control speeds downsides, what might it's upsides be?
02:37

EP 50 - Accountability/Failure
Accountability is owning your behaviours and results. Failure is a mistake in your behaviour, not a disappointing result. Failure occurs when you don\u2019t apply one or more of the six fundamental life skills in the Sentient Worldview, a structured version of the popular, modern growth mindset idea. This cultural shift permits greater accountability from individuals and improves collaborative bonds which are inherently fulfilling, the point of intentional living.

EP 47 - Utility and Values
Utility is not practicality. It is a measure of how useful something is when compared to what you value. You can value far more than objective, hard achievements. You can value play, joy, family, yourself. Have you thought about what you value? Have you ranked your values? Are you acting intentionally in alignment with them? Have you noticed how great you feel when you do?
