Lifehacking Ethical Hedonism: Make Good Decisions on Autopilot & Be the ROCKSTAR Forever

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

This article will dive into the millenniums old, yet rarely practiced mindset of ethical hedonism along with exploring it's biological implications.

{2jtoolbox photogallery id:1}

The core belief of hedonism is that...

People should do everything in their power to achieve the maximum amount of pleasure. It is also the idea that every person's pleasure should far surpass their amount of pain.

However, when we think of hedonism we usually think of... 

  • Sex orgies
  • Excessive drunkenness
  • Doing lots of hard drugs
  • Crazy, over the top parties
  • Really indulgent deserts and delicious foods

These are all things that are really enjoyable, but we also think of them as self destructive, or at least irresponsible and juvenile. We get massive spikes of the feel good nuerotransmitters; serotonin and dopamine from them. In fact that is why we say: That party was dope or that DJ was dope!

Aristippus

History

Ethical hedonism is a philosophy first articulated Aristippus of Cyrene, a pupil of Socrates. Aristippus wasn't a big believer in an after life so he figured that as long as you were above ground you might as well be enjoying yourself! 

He held the idea that pleasure is the highest good in the world. The other students of Socrates believed that the greatest good was to:

  • To contribute to society
  • To seek self knowledge
  • To understand the natural world

Aristippus was like: Fuck that noise! The greatest good is to get wasted on wine and have an orgy with a bunch of hot, young greeks.
He believed that pleasure was the ultimate good and I mostly agree!

Examples of Goal Rearticulation

41 Denver Shrinks Prove that Psychologists are mostly just Leeches

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Shrinks-leaches
According to a University of South Florida study 90% of people who quit smoking relapse. I've been a year and half without a cancer stick in between my lips, so I'm justifiably a little proud of beating that statistic. How did I do it?

In 2013 I spent a few months researching the biology of self control and after interviewing several doctors and subject matter experts. Based upon these interviews and my lifelong interest as layperson in the biology of self control, I distilled 20 different uncommon, yet very actionable lifehacks for increasing will power quickly and effectively. I quiet smoking using about five of these lifehacks. I then spent probably 20-30 hours organizing a detailed a multi media guide to self control based upon these lifehacks. Then I released it completely for free (no signup required) on my website, Limitless Mindset. Since I want to help as many people as possible with this information I personally emailed 40 different psychologists in the Denver area and offered to send them this guide completely for free, no strings attached.

I made what I thought was a very safe assumption that these psychologists had clients who would benefit greatly from these kinds of high leverage yet uncommon strategies for self control.

So far out of 41 emailed ZERO have responded.

The High Leverage Information Diet

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

I'm Jonathan and I'm an informationaholic.

You hear a lot of Lifehacker's talking about practicing a low information diet, indeed we live in an age of infinite information yet we have very finite time and attention. A lot of lifehacker's decry constant information consumption as a distracting practice. Bruce Lee actually had something really insightful to say about this:

A lot of people do get distracted by the overwhelming amount of information available at our fingertips at any given moment and it prevents them from living happy, productive lives. To combat this I've developed an information consumption regimen that is highly efficient. I present the components and consumption methods of the High Leverage Information Diet.

The Blue Sky Meditation Protocol

Blue Sky Meditation Protocol
Probably a lot of you are thinking...

Oh meditation... That's like thinking about not thinking right? I already tried meditation, I suck at meditation. I just get irritated with myself for thinking when I shouldn't be thinking.

Well... You probably haven't had success with meditation yet because your mind needs to warm up, your mind needs some foreplay to actually meditate.
The Blue Sky Protocol is a process that will lubricate your mind like it's in a candlelit, jacuzzi filled with KY jelly with a Barry White album playing in the background.
The Blue Sky Protocol will give your mind the foreplay it needs.

You've probably heard of the myriad benefits of meditation elsewhere; antiaging, memory, neuroplasticity, stress management and 'being present' in social interactions.
But what are the immediate, day to day benefits? If you are going to devote 10 minutes a day to something in the short term you probably want to know what you can expect to get out of it in the short term...
