Human Optimization™ is a system of thought designed to optimize people for success and well-being. The end goal reaches beyond the individual to the optimization of humanity.
Human Optimization™ provides the framework for the growth and success strategies that I teach on this site and in my professional speaking and success life coaching. It forms the foundation of my intellectual capital. This is my contribution to the world of growth, development, success, and well-being.
My goal and purpose in life—using the combination of Human Optimization™ and G Strategies™—is to help you to elevate your success and enhance your experience of peace or well-being. I want to help you be the best you can be, and reach your ultimate potential, so that you can achieve the success you desire and deserve. That is my personal and professional goal and the purpose of this site.
What is Human Optimization™?
At its most basic level Human Optimization™ refers to the optimization of humanity. To “optimize” means “to make as effective, perfect, or useful as possible” (dictionary.com). Thus, Human Optimization™ is a system of thought and strategies designed to make the human race as effective, perfect, or useful as possible. The objective is to make better people who will make a better world.
Let me explain from the beginning.
The Birth of Human Optimization™
Many years ago I was working hard to develop my first motivational speaking website. One evening I was focusing on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and trying to learn the many ways a person can optimize a website. The hope is that doing this will help search engines like Google to rank the website higher so that more people can easily find it. In short, SEO is about making your website as effective as possible.
Suddenly it hit me like a bolt of lightning. This is what I do with people. When you boil it down to a single thought, I strive to “optimize” people. There is a lot involved with that, but that is it in a nutshell. From that moment I have been developing my own “Intellectual Capital” called “Human Optimization™”.
In its founding moments I was not satisfied with focusing only on “Self Optimization™, and so I expanded my thinking to include all of humanity—thus “Human Optimization™”. Human Optimization™, therefore, does not end with the individual, it begins with the individual. The ultimate goal is that people will contribute to making this great world of ours a better place to live, work, and play.
“Human Optimization™” is my contribution to the world of growth and development, success and well-being. This is how I contribute to the lives of people who want to achieve their ultimate potential and succeed while they experience a deep sense of fulfillment. It’s how I strive to make the world a better place to live, work, and play.
The Goal and Purpose of Human Optimization™
The purpose of Human Optimization™ is to optimize people so that they may increase their ability to succeed, as well as contribute to making the world a better place to live, work, and play. I am committed to helping people to become as effective, perfect, and useful as possible. This framework of thinking and strategies is a way of identifying what we must focus on to excel, and how to best lay the groundwork for success. Human Optimization™ is designed to help people increase their potential, productivity, and performance. This will pave the way for their success.
The ultimate goal of Human Optimization™, however, is much broader than the individual. These strategies are designed to help individuals and organizations to maximize the potential of their greatest assets—themselves and their people. This will help individuals, teams, relationships, and organizations to succeed. Not only will people be impacted in a positive way, but it will also contribute to making this world a better place to live, work, and play—one person at a time.
Better People Make A Better World
There can be no argument that better people make a better world. Everything that is wrong with the world is the result of people who are self centered, care only about themselves, don’t care what they do or who they step on to succeed, and focus their anger and frustration on others. In short, rotten and miserable people make the world a rotten and miserable place to be.
My goal with Human Optimization™ is to contribute to making better people who will contribute to making the world a better place to live, work, and play. We only have one life to live and one world to live it in. It’s up to us all to make it the best experience possible, not just for us but for everyone involved in this journey we share.
The concept of Human Optimization™ is simple and yet so profound. Better people make a better world. The more we optimize ourselves and grow as people, the more we can shape, or optimize, our world in a positive way. Better people make a better world, and when you make people better you make the world better.
Making the World A Better Place to Live, Work, and Play.
Success comes with responsibility. There is more to life and success than achieving personal success that does not have a positive impact or influence in the world. That is a very limited and selfish view of success—and a very small view of the world—and I would argue that it is not true success at all. True success comes with the responsibility to use your success to make the world a better place to live, work, and play.
I am not simply responsible for my own success. I am responsible to use my abilities, talents, and the success I achieve to make this world a better place for everyone. We are all part of this great family we call humanity, and we must all play our role in optimizing humanity. That is the ultimate goal of “Human Optimization™”. It is a system of strategies focused not just on optimizing individuals for success, but on optimizing humanity as a whole for the achievement of success and the enhancement of peace or well-being.
We all have a greater responsibility that extends beyond ourselves. I want to help you optimize yourself, but not simply so that you can succeed for the sake of succeeding. I want to help you optimize yourself so that you can have a positive and significant impact on your family, teams, organizations, communities, and even the world you live in. That’s what Human Optimization™ is all about.
Harmonizing Skills and Expertise with Peace and Well-Being
The strategies of Human Optimization™ emphasis the simultaneous development of skills or expertise with the enhancement of peace or well-being. Improving your skills and expertise represents only one side of the coin when striving for success. Your personal well-being (aka “peace”) represents the other side of the coin, and it is just as important. When you combine “skills” (expertise) and “peace” (well-being) you will maximize your potential for success, happiness, and fulfillment.
The “Human Optimization™” model recognizes the need to increase an individuals skill level, while at the same time enhancing their experience of peace or well-being (or wellness). Skill (or expertise) and peace (or well-being) work together to maximize success and bring joy and happiness to life. I want to help you maximize your achievement of success and enhance your experience of peace. This is the true path to success.
There is more to success than increasing our ability to manage money, or people, or change, or conflict. We must do more than manage our external life, we much manage our inner life. We tend to focus on the former because it is easier. It is much more difficult to manage our inner life, and yet the inner life is the source of much turmoil and failure. When our inner life is healthy it will significantly elevate our ability to succeed.
Human Optimization™ combines the development of skill (expertise) and the enhancement of peace (well-being) in the journey to success. Personal peace, or well-being, reinforces the skills that you have learned through the years and increases your ability to succeed.
I help people develop the skills that will increase their potential, performance and productivity. But when you combine the principles for increasing skills with strategies for enhancing peace or well-being, then your ability to succeed will go through the roof. It is skill combined with peace that will enable you to achieve your maximum potential. This a the foundational principle of “Human Optimization™.
