Yesterdays Ü System update.

Had some time to work on my Ü System last night. I mostly worked on organizing how things are used. As you can see, I haven't invested too much time in the GUI. Seems to me that the GUI is something that I can deal with after the application is solid and provides solid data.

One of the big changes is that I lessened the idea of elements. In the beginning elements were things that make up an object score. As I started working through the process I came up with the idea of Pillars. Pillars are the corner stone of building Ü. At this point I started to think that so many layers was a bit confusing. So with this I decided to stick with the idea where every thing that I monitor is an object and objects help build the pillars.

First incarnation of my Ü System!

One of my personal projects has been to build a health dashboard. There are plenty of cloud connected apps out there but I just couldn't find one that was flexible enough for some of the things that I wanted to track and do. I decided to explore the scripting language behind Google Sheets.

My goal is to gather data from various sources and then correlated that data on one manageable dashboard. I also wanted to have lots of gauges and simple scores . Something quick to look at so I know if I'm meeting my daily, weekly and monthly goals.

In the beginning . . .

Although I did start to learn about Nietzsche's idea of the Übermensch and come up with the idea of finding Ü a few years ago. I believe that this was my first Instagram posting related to my Ü system.  I'll probably dig up the older posts and write about them in the future.

Workplace Napping

Some might think that sleeping on the job is a sign of laziness, but quite a few progressive companies are starting to encourage employees to take mid-day naps to recharge. This post on Why You Should Let Your Employees Nap at Work reminded me of an earlier post about how I have been experimenting with The Science of the Über Napping.

Self Promotion - Have Permission

I was reading this post and I really liked the idea of having permission from the people that you are engaging with when doing Self Promotion . It reminded me of SPAM. People delete SPAM. No one likes SPAM.

Blueberry and pine needle tea

My buddy John hooked me up with some fresh blueberries the other day and the first thing that came to my mind was, "I've got to make some blueberry and pine needle tea with these". The first time I tried pine needle tea was at a Buddhist temple a few year back and it knocked my socks off but I'm not fully convinced the need for this type of tea was a cosmic calling.

Low Carb Egg Fast: Jimmy D's First Periscope broadcast

If you haven't heard, Periscope is the new Twitter app that lets you send live broadcasts from your phone. Sure, there are other apps that are jockeying for the top position in this new method of delivery in the social media game but periscope caught my attention. With that in mind, I am going to use Periscope to document my Egg Fast journey.

Anyways, I am in the process of kicking a stall that I was having in my weight-loss goals. Ok, I have to be honest. It was more of me slipping than stalling but lets not focus on that. As with everything there are people that are pro and against this process. All I can tell you is that so far it has worked. I'm not done. I am going to adjust my exercise and  ride it until I see myself at my original goal weight. Then I have to transition back into my normal Keto/LC lifestyle. Martina over at Keto Diet Blog has an in depth post about the science and process behind the egg fast.

So here it is, Jimmy D's Morning Breakfast with the Low-Carb Egg Fast!
