The general UP blueprint revolves around one of three distinct modes.
- Life Mode: The aim is a maximum amount of value created over a lifetime (<122 or thousands of years). The heavy focus is on meta-level thinking, strategy, and systems that have very long time horizons. It is ideal for setting life purpose, strategy, and goals. The aim is to develop the agency you need to effectively accomplish your goals, which we expect to change as you grow.
- Annual Mode: The aim is a maximum amount of value created in 365 days. The focus is on meta-level thinking, strategy, systems, and projects that have moderate time horizons. This is ideal for annual reviews, strategy setting, and large complicated projects that have positive ROI over a year.
- Max Mode: The aim is a maximum amount of value created in 100 days. This is analogous to using an afterburner in a jet. You’re the jet and we’re maxing out your velocity with a deeply inefficient use of fuel. This mode is ideal for finishing large projects that simply “need to get done”. It is unique in that it allows for self-destructive practices to enhance focus and minimize distractions (e.g., excessive use of stimulants, limited renewal, intensive use of partner or group accountability, etc.).
