We are building a place for the world’s most motivated and successful people to come together to create a generation of mindful individuals focused on becoming the most successful versions of themselves. It will link Corporate America, Higher Education, and the next generation of motivated employees in a triad of knowledge-sharing and networking. We intend your Logic Central Online account to become a gateway into the minds of the elite producers of the world. It will track your mindful contributions to a database of self-development knowledge, the real-world work you put into making yourself the best you can be, and the accomplishments you’ve achieved along that path; all while rewarding you for your effort with university scholarships and access to physical success clubs.
We all want to know that we can make a difference, but also what our support is doing. Where is the money going? To begin, we need to know what the ultimate Logic Central platform will look like. What are all the moving pieces, and which ones will be available right away and which will be developed over time. Our final vision is to have a platform Creating a Community Connecting Intrinsic Resources and Motivated Talent.
As the white paper articulates, we have identified that there is a lack of support for people who value thinking. Since the onset of mass marketing through the modern age of radio, television, and now the internet; the most powerful influences have benefited by influencing masses of people to act without thinking. The world’s greatest institutions have grown power through involuntary influence and control over people. The ability to trigger thousands of people to buy a cola each time a commercial is run is so common place to the human psyche that people alive today do not know any different.
When the most powerful institutions promote a particular mindset, that mindset will without doubt become the predominant mindset in human culture. We as a species have become influenced by this popular culture to value involuntary reactionary lifestyles to a point where often people who do think are ridiculed or sneered at as if they have acted inappropriately. We want to change that and provide an influence to popular culture which not only values thinking but provides incentives for those that do so.
The phased approach at the bottom shows each phase, and what you can expect to see as the project evolves. The first phase is developing the initial platform; which is where the crowd funding comes in. Any additional remaining funds will be rolled into Phase II where scholarship funding will begin to provide empowering funds to the first self-identified individual.
Who our community is linking
Making such a community platform requires building from several directions. The phases below will encompass three primary categories of users but also acknowledge that infinite possibilities exist which we leave open to a forth category of “everyone else”. Here are the categories of community members we will address:
The Education-Members are one of the central aspects of building a community to match talent and people. Our university outreach is already in full swing. We are now approaching over 30 universities and this number grows each week. You can help here also by identifying any universities which you may want to evaluate the Logic Central curriculum. Contact us if you work at a university or please reach out to us if you can place us in contact with new-content evaluators or curriculum selection teams. Look for the Logic Central Leadership Curriculum as early as this fall.
The Corporate-Members are the Companies, professional organizations, and independent services providers. These community segments are also needed to be engaged, because they are the portion who ultimately will have need for talented and motivated individuals. Please also reach out to us if you or your company would like to add value to individual employees and thus your entire organization. In this modern age we need to, “Creating Leadership Not Management” and the greatest organizations are realizing this today. Life-Logic trainers and the Logic Central approach is redefining the way we see the next generation of leaders.
The Talent-Members are the third portion of the community. They are the, “Everyone” aspect of the community. We are the people who have the greatest ideas, are the hardest working, and are exceptionally skilled. So often we do not have representation in the online world because we are information seekers and lone wolf high performers. Many of us have only believed that online communities support special, narrow minded interests. We may not have believed that any online community would have relevant value to us. We share similar views as those presented in the post, “I don’t Need a Social Network”. What we need is what this effort is providing; a reason to become involved. We need a way to link real world value to our online efforts.
The internet age has caused the Logic Central Talent-Members to emerge from the most isolated corners of the planet. We are so often socially, politically and geographically neutral. A great article written on Pax Vobiscum, “The Rise Of The Grey Tribe” describing us as a Gray political party is right on the spot describing our governmental affiliation and self-sufficiency. Although we are a rapidly growing, silent majority; we are not represented by either of the major U. S. political parties because we are the target of both. We are the bread winners of our society; quietly, successfully, working alone.
The “Everyone-Else” portions of the community are endless. They are any real world items which can be used to validate or verify the motivation, value, or talent of a Talent-Member to the community. Contribution to the online body of knowledge on Logic Central is the beginning. Future possibilities could be, but are not limited to, any outside organization that tracks the performance of a verifiable life improvement or leadership activity. Some example categories may look as such:
- School communities, (i.e. NHS, PAJCL)
- Contributions to the public body of knowledge
- Open source collaboration
- Hours spent at a Health club or Gym
- Extra-Curriculars such as ROTC, Sports, Simulation, Mock-Trial, Y&G, etc.
- Community Service
- Traceable talent through awards
- Standardized testing Scores: ACT, SAT
- Online training certificates
- Social Network reach and influence
- Quantifiable time progressing oneself
This Everyone-Else category can take on many directions in addition to validating Talent-Members’ achievements. However, each should take on the approach of connecting the real and virtual worlds while incentivizing people to contribute in a mindful manner; matching people that “have” with people with the “desire or vision to perform”. We can envision pairing for the purpose of transferring knowledge, ideas, or resources, but the community is open to you; bring your ideas and help us refine this vision.
Stepping up our efforts
Because there are so many community portions to link together, the reasons which are outlined well in the white paper, “Creating a Community Connecting Intrinsic Resources and Motivated Talent”; we are stepping up Phase I. The community is building on its own but the platform and tools are not complete enough to have all the working pieces. Since the value is ultimately evenly distributed to each community member, we at Logic Central see our role as a facilitator of this community. As the facilitator, we are aware that we alone are not going to be able to fund each aspect of the community using our own sole abilities. Though we have taken on this effort on our own initiative, we are not moving rapidly enough to make the impact which is required to jumpstart what will ultimately be your community.
Over the years I have seen many charitable organizations, driven by emotional pleads, gain countless followers. Late night TV infomercials parade images of seemingly abused animals or children in distant worlds with saddened faces, each designed to trigger our involuntary actions which drive us to dump resources into a cause we know very little about. If we stop to think; if these effectively gain our support, they do so by triggering involuntary actions within us. Something in our environment created by another human, whether legitimate or not, has influenced our decision-making.
Logic Central was founded under the pretense that we are more than mindless buttons to be triggered to involuntarily react. I believe that the human race is poised to a great awakening, but we need to begin to have value for thinking. Most reward structures we are subject to as people do not include a measurable benefit to those who think, they are often pleasure based promoting value to taking the easy way out. We are setting cultural change in motion to add value for people who think, by incentivizing those who do.
Our minds, like any muscle, grow in strength the more we use them; so creating the desire and reward to do so repeatedly will create a next generation with greater exercisable cognition. A 1% change of average cognition either up or down over an entire population will have a great impact. Let’s decide today to make that impact positive. Remember involuntary, emotionally triggered causes are effective at funding many efforts because people act while they are emotionally triggered. We, as cognitively exercised people, also need to be so engaged in order to positively make our impact on the world. Don’t let this time pass donate today, we all know if we put off doing something that our percentage of remembering to return later to do so is much lower.
- Create a Reddit-based platform that will track your mindful self-improvement.
- Add scholarship rewards for thoughtful engagement.
- Enable corporate members to contribute to incentive-funding accounts and collect data about our talented contributors.
- Connect many real world metrics to the Logic Central reward structure.
- Build real-world success centers.
Risks and challenges
There is a risk, as with any web platform that the physical growth adds more ongoing expenses than income can support. Solutions to this may involve advertising, which is not a part of our vision.
A second risk involves the privacy with having individual user accounts and demographically valuable information. This will be addressed from the ground up during development in order to reduce the risk of compromising. The fact that the leadership is aware that these features are valuable will allow us to do all we can to build users' comfort with the privacy of the platform.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
