Going vegetarian

Daniel from the bible was vegetarian.

Benjamin Franklin was vegetarian.

Adolf Hitler apparently was vegetarian.

Tony Robbins is vegetarian.

Why not see what the fuss is about.

After I consume my meat products, I’ll eat only vegetable-based calories for thirty days.

Lez go!

Stay off Steam and Discord for one month.

Between 1336 14-Jan, 2018 and 1336 14-Feb, 2018, I* will keep my ass offline from Steam and Discord. Because, I’ve been spending 60+ hours a week on these games–imagine what I’d get done if I appropriated that time for better results.

Analyze Variance of Hours-To-Progress Data.

I know the posts are ugly. I’m thinking of ways to improve it. Bear with me.

Slice-of-Life:

Played 18+ hours of PUBG yesterday. With a variety of people. Crazy.

Past Comfort Expanding Ritual Task:

When I was sixteen or seventeen, I was asked to watch my neighbors dog. As a self-repressed, semi-homosexual, I found the idea of sucking the dog off and having the dog hump me an interesting exploration of this part of me. So I did both those things. While I’m sure the dog was okay with it, I’m sure it’s in general something I probably shouldn’t have done. I have many fears about admitting it to the owners of the dog, but ultimately, I’m a better person now, and I value a clean conscience–and the support of the firm belief of “authenticity is the best policy” with action–so my task for today is to admit this to said people.

  • No times because this was already done before posting it. I felt sick after doing this. But at least I was free.

Plan:

For two-factor experiments for various factor pairs. If I* find a way to analyze for interaction with three or more factors, do that experiment.

If I* will commit to constant and never-ending improvement, I will see superiority in all I I commit to. (Working belief until I get something more specific.)

FP -> Comfort Expansion:

Good: Write -> Do–and not even Write -> Publish -> Do nor even Write -> Publish -> Freak -> Do. Just did it!! For the most pate

CP: How to connect with people: Email, FB, phone. When to do it. Whether to do it or not.

Good -> Better: Breathe. Presence. Just do it.

Not-So-Good: Didn’t tell Paul. Maybe should’ve told Alex. Didn’t call.

Different Than Not-So-Good: Call ’em. Do it at the beginning of the year instead of waiting seven days. Forget reputation when doing these things. Be present.

I know the posts are ugly. I’m thinking of ways to improve it. Bear with me.

Slice-of-Life:

Stayed up late recording videos of myself playing PUBG, hoping to get better. Missed a basketball appointment with my dad ;.; Also missed playing games with Casey Jones. I don’t wake up very easily.

Past Comfort Expanding Ritual Task:

Devote eight hours, additional to whatever I may have done before writing this post, to the full implementation of the scientific method with relation to experimental design, Fast Experiments, and business.

Plan:

Just devote another four hour session to this after this. After a four hour session, play for a bit. Use friends to contradict what I*’ve learned. Then get back into it by 02:30. Play PUBG after that.

Past Recovery Task: 

After this four-hour session (or maybe during):

  • Do a recovery “potion” anytime my energy dips below “30%” in any quadrant (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical) – nap, deep breathe, meditate, work out, watch a funny video.

If I* will commit to constant and never-ending improvement, I will see superiority in all I I commit to. (Working belief until I get something more specific.)

FP -> Comfort Expansion:

Good: Did more than two four-hour study sessions. Threw myself into some complicated math and extremely useful stuff–namely Taguchi and Response-Surface methodology.

CP: Whether and when to sign off. What to respond with when I don’t. How to handle commitments that interfere with me mid-game. What to do when things get interesting, or I* don’t understand something. What to do when I* get overwhelmed.

Good -> Better: Set time limits on my home ec and game playing. Make sure I* get what I* go after within my four hour sessions. Be present always!

Not-So-Good: I played games, stayed online, when I still had work to do. Now, I still have an hour’s worth of questions and a chapter left to read, when I* could be onto the next thing.

Different Than Not-So-Good: Sign off! Stay signed off until my goal is done. Keep going, especially when it seems overbearing.

Scientific Method Implemented By 06:30 Today.

Slice-of-Life: Tossed and turned for three hours last night, pontificating a life-altering decision. Finally got to sleep at 0400. Woke up at 1000. Actually got up after 1400. Emotionally sick Casey fails to land with us at the Prison in PUBG. Lands in the water. Disconnects after that.

Plan: Just devote another four hour session to this after this. Use friends to contradict what I*’ve learned. Systematic stress followed by renewal is the key to high performance. | Done?: Worked two hours. Got a call from sis. Went to the parents’ place for a couple of hours. Came back and finished the process through the New Year. Yielded a shiny new website and five posts on fastexperiments.io.

Past Recovery Task: After this four-hour session (or maybe during):

  • Do a recovery “potion” anytime my energy dips below “30%” in any quadrant (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical) – nap, deep breathe, meditate, work out, watch a funny video.

FP -> Comfort Expansion:

Good: Focused and persistent. Followed through and got the website done and secured properly–with memory-shortage and security contingencies considered.

CP: Whether to build the website. Whether to contact Paul. What question to ask. What metric to optimize. Presence? How to collect evidence. Whether to ask the conclusion questions that Elon proposes. When to form an axiom. How much to write out.

Better: Be present while I do things. Ask questions about how things really work. Perhaps set learning goals.

Not-So-Good: At a certain point, I had a “durr” moment. I was not willing to step back emotionally and see what I needed to. I stopped ID-ing evidence for short bursts of time.

Different: Be present during the whole process. Presence, even if it means being temporarily unable to work, is better than working without it.

Scientific Method Implemented By 21:00 Today.

Slice-of-Life: Killed four players in PUBG with Casey Jones and Lucifer. I’m the last one standing in each (but one) of the six games. My tactical superiority of my position, use of cover, and knowledge of when and how to peak triumphs in many cases. It seems that success in the ranks is inevitable.

Past Comfort Expanding Ritual Task:

Get all remaining Chapter 9 exercises complete, then understand and complete all of Chapter 10 exercises in Experimental Design. (ST: 06:00; ET 16:00, all on 24-Dec, 2017)

Plan: “Throw goal-oriented focus sessions at this objective until it’s done. ID value-adds and non-value-adds–replace NVA’s with VA’s.”What happened: Focus sessions. Rudimentary scientific methodology.

FP -> Comfort Expansion:

Good: Really “got” the methodology for Yates and confounding. Can do this with any size block. Got the process ID-ed and automated via code.

CP: What to do when confronted with a new unknown–breadth or depth first search? Whether to follow through with the scientific method, or to do something new. Even

Better: Ask a question, design an experiment based on possible factors (i: various passages of the book, methods of acquiring info, etc.; d: understanding, Capability To Create Utility (CTCU)), then conduct the experiment or simply gather more info. Follow the rest of the scientific method systematically, until the desired level of confidence and understanding is acquired.

Not-So-Good: Learn to code with Android and web apps, so that I may get a visual interface going for these apps! Always handwriting my scientific analysis of the question.Different: Use the computer to collect data on my questions–writing is about 66% slower than typing, speaking, or recording a video–and possibly slower than drawing or taking pictures and uploading them.

“Get” Chapters 9 & 10 in Experimental Design.

The importance of the task forgotten. Super slow

Past Comfort Expanding Ritual Task:

Be 8/10 present and curious about Experimental Design for six fifty minute sessions. Ten minutes between the first two for recovery. Forty minutes between the second two for recovery. Repeat this until done. (ST: 13:00 on 22-Dec, 2017; ET: 02:00 on 24-Dec, 2017;)

FP -> Comfort Expansion:

Good: Actually figured out how to reverse the Yates algorithm after reading a book. Maintained legitimate curiosity the first couple of hours.

CP: When to start. Whether to go back or not. How to view the focus session.

Even Better: Look at where each treatment is in relation to others. Create experiments relating to raving fan-ness, delight, and cash income.

Not-So-Good: Took two days to finish this. Didn’t do the focus sessions within 10 or 40 minutes of each other.

Different: Always start the next session ten minutes after. Do breathing or exercise during that time. Read or talk to someone.
