Poeple goes out from his fear and starting a business, has not enough money for living every day, but he/she goes on and on even if him scare everyone laugh his plans and everyone say you are only a dreamer..... Whit good idea full of courage he /she work hard on the Plane, schedule.......After that over the years built a foundation stone and the last square is a symbol of victory over myself and years of effort over fear. Victory, when he ceased to be afraid to change the plan and went to swell and distributed work, the joy, the love, the dignity of every human being on this earth. Joy is a world without war, a full work conditions, dignified existence. long live the one that is brave. Victory belongs to him .............IŠ
The unbalanced square shows the singularity of thinking or individuality of seeing reality. The 2 set of 4 squares is the transformation from one state to another, with the other having the doted singularity obtained. 4 squares defenitely give more stability than triangles or circles. Nevertheless squares are still giving the idea of frames, not "order", so I like the idea of something sticking out - that I rather see as singularity. Blue is often associated with lenguage/words/communication/flow/sequence/progress - just first thoughts..YR
I like the ideas that it has to do with moving goals forward and multiple quadrants. But they are both have so much in common that perhaps they represent where you are now, and where you want to be.
Scheduled tasks, the white orderly squares mean no scheduled tasks are ready but the blue with the skewed square means you have scheduled tasks to do.
Or alternatively, the new feature is based on Habit 7, "Sharpen the Saw" (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey). "Sharpen the Saw" means having a balanced program for self-renewal in the four areas of your life: physical, social/emotional, mental, and spiritual. The feature will help you renew yourself in each of the four areas by using "Start My Day" to manage activities to help you maintain a program for self-renewal in the four areas of "My Life."
The new feature filters your thoughts, ideas and to-dos in "Start My Day" by sorting them according to the four quadrants of the Time Management Matrix (The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey) and aligning those thoughts, ideas and to-dos that help you achieve your goals with Quadrant II (Not Urgent But Important), the heart of effective personal management. The feature will help you maintain a proper balance of your "Daily Targets" to effectively achieve the "Stuff I Want."
The background is the geo-location and the "looking for" people for Systems Leverage for people, businesses, others with similar interests on Simpleology and through the larger networks of social media. Ping...ping....ping...
I kinda like the X-Ray Specs idea, though.
Also, Simpelology members will be able to interact with each other and help each other hit their Targets, like people can do on Fitocracy.
The white and blue squares are for integrating your Simpleology Targets locally. So if one of my Targets is to get a job in my town, this will integrate with local listings as I set it up. Or if I buy pet food for my cat in my town, it will show up on my smartphone or tablet's Simpelology interface with geo-location looking it up and from there you can get directions. Then when you walk into the store it will note this (as with Foursquare and similar apps) and if you have automatic logging of purchases or photo-receipt logging, it will note this as well and check off your target box as well, as having been done. Or if I need to go to the post office, bank, or library, there will be a way to set these up for integration as well. This will show up, also, on the home interface (laptop, etc.)
Twitter and Facebook apps. Social media integration. Linked In, etc. An app that lets you manually use icons on a touch screen to organize targets.
(Sigh). Until you give us the answer, I'm going to have to keep on trying to guess.
A new function for the backward planner app on the major focus/my life section. You can add deadlines and timescales to backward planner tasks which auto add directly to Daily Targets.
New app icons representing modules of Simpleology you choose, adapted for mobile. Also some new spin on the DTP.
maybe they represent exercises to keep our brains sharp. The white ones for the exercises we have done and the blue for those not yet attempted.
This comment will win for accuracy as well as humor:
The background is from the Xray specs we all bought as kids so we could see through girls' clothes. (Go figure, it didn't work)
The white squares symbolize order done the way it should be. (in a non creative sense) The blue squares represent a new way of organizing for those of us who are not completely linear.
I'm also envisioning Steven Covey's quadrants with Quadrant #2 (Important, but not urgent) being popped out to symbolize it's significance.
It would be great if the tool centered around that with ways to help make Quadrant 2 activities take priority. That's where life really happens, as well as success and fulfillment.
Thanks for reading...now how do I get my free year of Elite?
Go Mark Go!
What new can still come from simpleology after all the changes and improvements in the recent future. it must have to do with goals so that one can have more than one goal for short term goals at least.
Mehh I can't get any idea of what they might represent. So I'll just bank this comment on the chance of getting a random pick. If that happens here's my email address for easier rewarding: email@example.com :P Ugh, ok I'll give it a try. The white squares symbolize the morning brain dump items and the blue squares are the daily target items.
This is a sign that Lex Luthor really created Simpleology and is now taking over the real world! Did anyone else get a Lex Luthor vibe from the guy presenting the changes? Mark Joyner, I've found out your secret identity!
Daily Targets and Braindump...
Braindump and Lockbox...
Confusion in, Clarity Out...
I thought mine was funny but OmryMan yours is hilarious!! ( Ok I'll admit I'm hooked on Sudoku and there was some truth to your statement but it was great!! ILMAO, dropped the sudoku book & almost fell off the toilet!!)
Without a doubt…
This is Mark's greatest invention yet.
A true blessing to the world. Finally a remedy to a growing populationof outcasts, a suffering population of individuals who practice things unimaginable to some,things that would make you skin crawl and your stomach turn…
..... SUDOKU ADDICTS.
There I said it… SUDOKU ADDICTS $#@! ..... Salvation is yours.
With these new features you will be able to finally rid yourself
of this heinous habit and once again use the toilet for the purpose god intended.
Thank you Mark for this gracious wonderful gift.
Hi Mark I'm guessing Diamond Blueprint, perhaps a name of a feature, but I'm not quite sure what it is. If I were doing a cryptic crossword this would be my guess. Hey Mark, I love Simpleology with or without the changes. I recommend to everyone to use this awesome tool to simplify their lives to the max
- Keep up the great work!
I believe that the first paragraph contains two words that are part of the answer - "right" and "life" and combined with one additional word, completes the answer. SIMPLE
Too busy getting on with things that matter to comment (Thank you ;-)).
And maybe the new name is based on the HIME acronym.
A play on HIME rhyming with "I'm", like HIMEProductive?
And, given the HIME connection, I'd also guess that the top right hand corner of the blue group, being where your attention should be focussed - on the tasks with the Highest Impact, Minumum Effort, is a diamond shape specifically to help you focus on those. The high value diamondon connotation, plus the differentiation by the shape.
Still wondering about the white and blue though. Not sure if my first guess of regular vs Elite is anywhere close. Could be those Power (vs regular) Features you mention, especially given your use of a similar colour in the cartoon. Or could it be that the progress to the power features will be available to everybody, and they are evolving from white (current/regular) to blue (future/power)?
I first bumped into this model through a course called "Your Time and Your Life" sold by Daytimers corporation, the analog version of Steve Covey's Prioritization method. In it you prioritize tasks from A through D, A being the high priority items, B being Important items, C being items of some importance, and D being those items you really don't have to do. The blue square that is rotating off the plane of the cube is actually the D tasks, and the blue represents those tasks from the white squares that have been prioritized. You can procrastinate indefinitely on the D's but it sure is helpful to figure out what those are at the outset, as well as determining the absolute A* (the A Star) at the beginning of each day: this is the item that will have the most impact on your desired outcome(s). It is not always easy to determine but the process of sorting tasks in this way will help you to generate ideas about how best to accomplish this and help you experience a sense of your own mastery.
Rebooting is always a good thing! In fact, that's part of the concept of simpler living in my experience - shedding what no longer is useful, refining the things that are, adding something new as things become more clear. Kudos and congrats!!!
The two sets of boxes represent the Eisenhower Method, named after President Eisenhower, which is a matrix where all All tasks are evaluated using the criteria important/unimportant and urgent/not urgent and put in according quadrants. The rotated box in the upper right corner of the blue set of boxes represents the Important, but not urgent tasks, because these are the tasks that one should focus. As is attributed to Eisenhower, What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important. The two new features will be (1) A way to sort tasks according to the Eisenhower Method and (2) A feature that will then hide all tasks that are not Important and Not Urgent (And potentially Important and Urgent when needed).
NB: This methodology is incorrectly attributed to the late Stephen Covey, but he merely popularized it. Like many of the concepts that Covey popularized, he never attributed them to their originators, as he felt that this was Not Important and/or Not Urgent, and so left the attribution of his ideas in these boxes his entire life. In fact, Mark Joyner actually came up with these concepts before Covey or Eisenhower, but like many of Joyner's concepts, he never was given popular attribution. Yes, I know that you may claim that Eisenhower was alive before Joyner, but that is merely because Joyner has been using the concepts in 'Simpleology 303: The Simple Science of Anti-Aging' to extend his life far beyond normal people. In fact, Mark Joyner is the oldest person living on the earth currently at 803 years old. For the unitiated those two sets of boxes do represent the 'Joyner method for prioritization,' but for those who have taken Simpleology 303, they know that these are in fact alchemical symbols that are the keys to reversing aging and possibly living forever, the long sought after Philosopher's Stone. You may say that there is no such thing as Simpleology 303, but this is simply because you don't have the secret login given only to the Super Elite Simpleology members. In fact, Simpleology will soon be rebranded The Answer, because it will solve lifes most vexing question. These elite courses will be uber expensive at $100,000 a month, and only Billionaires like Richard Branson will sign up, but those who are currently Elite members of Simpleology will be grandfathered in, as they know what is truly Important. Thank you, Simon.
