ALTERNATIVES

UP isn’t for everyone, so here are a few alternatives to consider.

  • Continue with your “business as usual” approach to upgrading yourself
    • Pros: no learning curve, much less upfront expenses, more privacy
    • Cons: very unlikely to achieve as much growth, significantly more likely to become derailed, more expensive over time, far more time-consuming, more dangerous
  • Do an UP-like intervention completely by yourself
    • Pros: much less expensive upfront, more privacy
    • Cons: very unlikely to achieve as much growth, significantly more likely to become derailed, more expensive over time, far more time-consuming, more dangerous
  • Do an UP-like intervention with a team you build and manage yourself
    • Pros: less expensive upfront, more privacy
    • Cons: unlikely to achieve as much growth, more likely to become derailed, more expensive over time, more time-consuming, more dangerous
    • Pros: potentially less expensive upfront, potentially better evidence supporting positive outcomes, potential cohort effect
    • Cons: unclear whether you will achieve as much growth, may ignore significant life areas in need of upgrading, may have less customization
  • Give up and go live in a cave
