Fordham’s quantitative finance blog has a great post on the topic of quantifying yourself. The key to successfully quantifying yourself, is to start by identifying the “what” that matters and the “how” that matters.

Once you’ve identified the what, you can start figuring out the how.

Quantifying yourself is a good place to start because it’s a great tool for helping you to learn about yourself. When I first started looking into the subject, I found my self-awareness levels were way off, so I needed to find a way to quantify my self-awareness levels. The best way I found to do it was to play around with the game FreeThought.

As a quantitative finance player, I found that the only thing I have to quantify about myself is how I play the game. I don’t need to quantify anything about how much I sleep, my love life, my body fat, my weight, my income, my life expectancy, or my IQ. I don’t need to quantify these things because if I did I wouldn’t be living life.

The best thing about FreeThought is that it gives you the ability to do both a little self-scrutiny of your own behavior and also a little self-awareness. You could go right ahead and quantify all of your sleep habits and your love life and your body fat, but instead you can do a little self-scrutiny of your own behavior and then also self-reflect a little on your own life.

For example, my wife and I would often sleep in separate bedrooms. I would get up at the same time each morning and it would be my job to get myself ready and then I would get up and leave. If I was home in the middle of the night, I would not be able to get myself ready by myself. I have to get up and leave. It was a terrible habit of mine.

Like many other people, I was guilty of the same behavior when I got married. I would get up at the same time each morning and I would have to get myself ready and then I would go. I could not get myself ready and leave in the middle of the night. I have to get up and leave and I forgot that I have to do this. I also forgot that I was married and that I was supposed to be the man of the house.

You may have noticed that the majority of the time I get excited about getting dressed and heading out to the car in the morning. I’m thinking about the car. I’m thinking about the car because it’s very important to me. It will make me feel good. It will tell me that the world is just great and that I must go and not be upset. It will tell me that I must go, it will tell me that I must go because that is what we do.

The car is the second most important thing in the world to me. Even though I’m not the one who gets to drive it, I see it as an extension of me. For example, I like to go shopping. I go to the store because I want to buy something for myself, not because I want to buy something for someone else. I get excited about buying something for myself because I want it to feel special.

In some cases, though, we are the ones who get to drive the car. The car is the most important thing in the world to us. So when we say we will not get the car or we won’t take the car, we don’t really mean we will take it because we don’t need it. We will take it because we want to.
