The Master of Optimal Living is a revolutionary program, and my main goal is to determine how we can create a life we love while bringing our greatest contribution to the world.
Here is how I’ve divided my study curriculum:
1- Optimizing the Human Mind ( Practical Philosophy, Spirituality, the Art & Science of Happiness, Meditation)
2- Optimizing the Human Brain (Cognitive Training, Bio-Chemical Enhancement, Neuro-Science)
3- Optimizing The Human Body (Evolutionary Biology, Revolutionary Fitness, Superfoods & Optimal Nutrition)
4- The Science of Achievement (Goal Setting, Productivity Tools, Organizational tools)
5- Lifestyle Design (Aligning Life/Work/Passions, Chasing our Dreams, Having New Experiences)
This blog will serve as the thesis for my Master’s Degree. I will award myself the Degree after I have written 100 useful & entertaining posts, discussing 100 big ideas of Optimal living. By writing 2 posts every week, this will take me 1 year.
While learning this material, the questions I’m constantly asking myself are:
“How can I apply this to make my life better?”
“How can I use this material to help others live better?”
“How can I use this material to create the positive social changes I want to see in the world?”
Here 5 of the many reasons I believe that in 2011, self-directed studies are much more effective way to learn than the traditional university model.
- I can learn directly from the best experts in the world in each field.
- I can learn in a format that fits my learning style and my inspiration of the moment (blog, podcast, book, eBook, online articles, TED Talk, instructional Youtube video, etc).
- I only focus on the material that is highly relevant and interesting to me. The traditional model of “force-feeding” material that is not relevant or interesting to students is totally ineffective.
- I learn the material consistently and apply it everyday. From a learning standpoint, it sure beats the hell out of cruising all semester, cramming for the exam, then regurgitating information on a sheet of paper.
- I can test my hypothesis through self-experiment (and measure results when applicable) to gain valuable feedback that helps me refine and expand my ideas.
In the next few months, I will be adding another component to my studies, as I will start taking classes at Entheos Academy of Optimal Living.
