Theme for May 2008: Mind

I’m thinking of setting monthly theme here on Life Optimizer. There are three reasons for this:

1. I want to give you deeper coverage of certain topic so that you can better focus on optimizing that aspect of your life.

2. Personally I also want to focus my life optimization effort on certain aspect of my life. I believe it will give me better results than just trying to optimize my life in general. One month is a long enough period to get results from focused effort.

3. I’d like to have higher-quality discussions here that will enrich everyone. Since there is theme continuity during the month, everyone will have the chance to dig deeper into the topic so that there can be more lively discussions.

Of course, it means that I will write articles with that theme during the month. But don’t worry if the theme is not interesting to you: I will still write general articles. I’m not sure about the proportion between themed and general articles since this is something new for me. But one thing for sure, I want to accommodate both the people who are interested and not interested to the monthly theme.

May 2008 will be the first month with monthly theme on Life Optimizer and the theme will be mind. It will cover topics such as:

  1. Understanding how brain works
  2. Increasing our brain fitness
  3. Increasing our mind performance
  4. Learning from the bright minds’ in history

I’m not saying that I’m an expert in this area. To the contrary, having a monthly theme is actually a way for me to push myself to learn more about the topic. I will share what I learn with you and I believe I will also learn a lot from you.

What do you think?


  1. i love it. good idea

  2. Great idea – Your four points can keep it “real” (avoid metaphysical), and continuing to provide excellent references and links to source material for accountability and further study is essential.

  3. Sounds like a great idea!

  4. Focsa, Randy, and Ann,
    Thanks for your responses! This is the first time on Life Optimizer and I hope it will go well.

    Yes, whenever possible I will provide references to source materials. I’m now exploring the materials that can be used.

  5. […] we come to June. As you may know, last month was the first month here where I set monthly theme and the theme was mind. In my opinion, the theme went well. Having a monthly theme gave me more focus on writing and […]
