As promised, posting today the slides of my “100 Days of Summer” talk that I presented at the 2013 Quantified Self conference in San Francisco last Thursday (October 10). In this presentation, I shared most important and interesting results of the first phase of Measured Me project.
The main objective of the first phase was to test 8 metrics that I chose to quantify my Being Well (current state of body, mind and psyche) and Existential Well-being (happiness and life satisfaction), by tracking them continuously for 100 days, several times a day. At the end of the summer, I looked at the trends, correlations, and other patterns and properties to evaluate “trackability” of each metric and their potential for describing and predicting my everyday life. My conclusion was that these metrics are relatively well suited for the purposes of quantifying and capturing my everyday life, and I will continue using them (although after some revisions and improvements).
The presentation was given as a part of the “Show and Tell” series. At the end of the talk, there were some interesting questions from the audience:
I am currently preparing for the next phase of the project. The Quantified Winter phase will last four months (November – February), and will focus on improving some metrics (including physical health and cognitive tests) and testing new metrics (sleep quality, productivity, creativity, social capital). Stay tuned!
