Notes: Wyatt Woodsmall Time Management Teleclass

Intro: This teleclass was a mix of ideas from NLP (including timelines) and systems thinking. If you’ve never dealt with NLP before, some ideas here might make little or no sense to you. Good introductory book on NLP is “Introducing NLP” by Joseph O’Connor and John Seymour. Now, to the notes. Always have an outcome. Have sensory acuity to know if we are going there. Have enough flexibility of behaviour to get what we want.

Notes: The Buffering-Challenging Strategy for Health, Fitness and Life-extension by Francis Heylighen

What evolutionary theory an cybernetics can teach us about improving health, fitness and longevity? \begin{equation} H(E) \geq H(P)–H(A)+H(A|P)–B \end{equation} Here: \(H\) - variety or uncertainty \(E\) - essential variables \(P\) - perturbations \(A\) - actions \(B\) - buffering capacity Maximising fitness is minimising \(H(E)\). One way we can minimise \(H(E)\) is by maximsing buffering capacity \(B\). Another way is to minimise \(H(P)\) by avoiding known dangers. Yet another way is to maximise the range of actions \(H(A)\) as well as to minimise uncertainty \(H(A|P)\) (e.
