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?

I have been interested in self-knowledge for self-improvement since my first fat-scale that I received as a Christmas present almost 10 years ago. There is increasing convergence today around internet of things and biometric sensors, but can be meaningless if without mindful, human design to incorporate into real behavior change. Also interested in management behavior change in business organizations.

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 have been tracking my weight and body fat in an Excel file for about eight years since early Tanita scales. A family competition to lose weight: first prize was gym membership, second prize was shoes, third prize was a pair of socks! Turned into an annual competition, and entire family has been healthier for it.

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

Depending on scheduling (tricky!), professors visiting from Philadelphia campus: Kevin Webach (gamification), David Bell (consumer choice behavior)

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

Wharton SF campus in Hills Brothers Coffee building.


My name is Hardy Simes, and I'm a student at Wharton SF, also working full-time on a QS idea for mental wellness and cognitive performance.
