We are highly selective with admitting new members (~20% admit rate), so fully completed profile questions will get priority. What is your full name and LinkedIn profile URL?

Self improvement and lifelong learning are the real habits, equally important as specific habits and goals. I've made some changes recently, around food, fitness, playing music, social interaction...and want to stick with those changes. And there are other changes on my agenda that are around community building - to do this wisely, not just via gritting my teeth and enforcing grim self-discipline.

What is the nature of your interest in designing experiences for personal habit development?

No answer yet

Can you share a 5-minute personal story about a successful habit practice that's lasted longer than 100 days? If so, please give us just a quick synopsis!

I'm finally practicing piano again daily after a long hiatus - I stopped after I broke my hand in 2006.

Which (if any) relevant guest speaker(s) could you contact to speak at a future meetup with whom you already have a personal relationship?

I might imaginably get you a real Zen priest to talk about it. Or in another vein, I'm happy to present findings myself from an industry perspective.

Which specific host locations (if any) could you contact to host/sponsor a future meetup?

In theory, down here at my employer's place in Menlo Park.


Hi, rather than focusing too much on changing the world, which I don't expect to do, I tend to focus on changing myself. Both are hard. Anyhow some people think changing the world starts with changing one's self - maybe I'm in that camp now.
