What Are You Working On And How Can I Help?

I want to make something abundantly clear to everyone reading this blog (perhaps I should update the title and create an about page). It might not look like it but I have one goal in life above all other goals. It’s often hidden from view because of work, video games, life, tai chi, etc. but it’s the one thing I think about the most and am sincerely trying to do:

Change the world.

That’s probably been my main goal in life for more than 15 years now so I’ve actually refined it a tad beyond such a cliche statement.

Create a “social virus” that will organically spread throughout countries and cultures lifting the human race to a higher social consciousness.

Yeah… that. πŸ™‚

What Are You Working On?

On mother’s day I fleshed out the idea for a website/app that I would like to create. The premise behind the site would be “gamifying” your goals (making goal setting and completion a game).The first step would be figuring out your goals (a lot harder than it seems πŸ˜‰ ). Once you have a list of goals, choose the goal that would have the most positive effect on your life (mine might be in transition now but it’s either mastering sales or finding a more balanced job). So, using myself as an example, what I’m working on right now is finding a more balanced job.

How Can I Help?

The second part of this equation is helping people accomplish their main goal. The easiest way to show how this works would be if you left a comment telling me what you’re working on. πŸ™‚ I might be able to help and I might not, but maybe someone reading this will be able to help and… You get the idea.

The Viral Equation For Elevation Of Social Consciousness

Imagine spreading that idea. “What are you working on and how can I help?” What if everyone at your job thought like this? What if everyone at school thought like this? What if all of your friends and family thought like this? I think two things would happen:

  1. People would naturally have clearer and clearer goals from talking about them more often.
  2. People would exponentially increase the rate at which they completed their goals (through clarity and group effort).

What I want to create is the back-end for this process. Something that allows you to track your progress, help others, have fun (with challenges), meet in real life, “level up”, etc.

I suppose the tagline for the website/app would be “What are you working on and how can we help?” but for today:

What are you working on and how can I help? πŸ˜€

    Dude nice! I have the exact same goal and…I really like this idea :D. So I guess that answers the question of what I’m working on, and as far as how can you help..well just reading this made it “click” in my head. So thanks! lol

    Hey there! Long time no talk.

    Some of my biggest goals are:
    1. Become fluent in Japanese
    2. Travel to Japan and work there
    3. Master and produce music
    4. Become charismatic (i.e. a people person)
    5. Start and maintain a business that allows me to live life to the fullest

    I knew you had learned Mandarin really well, so I knew you could probably help me with that. πŸ˜›

    Anyways, thank you so much for the offer! I might return the favor, or pay it forward. πŸ™‚

      My roommate masters and produces music full time. It’s pretty much the only job he’s had his whole life. He has a professional studio in the basement. A few people mentioned wanting to know more about producing on YouTube as well, so I’m going to introduce him and let people ask him questions. πŸ™‚

      Traveling to and working in Japan isn’t too hard. I’m sure you’ve got most of it figure out already (and that will TOTALLY help with that first goal).

      Getting a sales job will FORCE you to become a people person. πŸ˜‰ Otherwise you could start practicing all of that PUA (pick up artist) stuff. Even though it’s tailored for getting girls, there’s a lot of basic stuff in there about social interacting.

      I’m working on that #5 myself… πŸ˜‰

    I’m working on making my community a better place, focusing on bringing people together around saving historic structures. You can help me the most by getting your life together.

    So…what I’m working on? My list is huge, though I once heard someone say it’s best to keep two things in your mind at a time so you don’t get bogged down.

    The two things in mind for the now are getting prepared for next Monday (almost done), and the week in Chicago for ACEN (so not ready). Long term, getting my car fixed up so I can get renewed registration, and a new job because I’ve finally taken the leap from my employ since 2009.

    In terms of helping those tasks, I think I can handle what’s coming for me next week, and I have to thank you for the methods you’ve shared in that regard. Long term, need to watch the funds for my car should it get to the shop, and open myself up to new opportunities so that I can get bacon. On that…no idea.

    I’ve considered focusing exclusively on video production, but I doubt there’s any money in it for me at this point, and I loathe putting a risk on something like that. If all else, I’ll gobble up whatever employ I can get. It sounds like an adventurous future, however it should go, and looking forward to the change. Makes it one step closer to bringing the best out of me. Or something.
