UP QUOTES

“The future is already here–it’s just not evenly distributed.”

William Gibson

We believe that emerging technologies will radically transform what it means to be human.

 

Putting humans on the Moon required 2.8 billion hours of work and cost about $280 billion dollars. That’s often what it takes to  invent the future.

Futurists and other big picture visionary thinkers can see that the world is changing extremely rapidly. Sometimes they choose to create and/or shepherd this change themselves. Upgradable exists to serve these individuals.

An Upgrade Program (“UP”) helps you improve your entire life and systematically achieve your highest value goals.  

You can do your UP on your own for free or, if you find it cost-effective, use our aligned coaches, assistants, and wide array of specialists. Think of your UP Team like your personal J.A.R.V.I.S. or Alfred Pennyworth. It’s not cloning, but it’s as close to it as we could get with existing technology.

We can do your personal and professional work with or for you and are especially good at helping you get unstuck from your biggest systemic challenges. We can also keep you abreast of all the latest technology you might use to upgrade yourself. Our aim is to save you thousands to tens of thousands of hours over your lifetime (or plausibly much more if humanity solves aging). 

With futurists, UPs are generally between 1 day and 1 year long. focusing on measurably improving your career, productivity, cognition, health, fitness, nutrition, sleep, emotional wellbeing, and/or brand. We have science-based, partly outsourceable plans (including carefully curated tools, assessments, and resources) for optimizing these and every other area of your life.

For entrepreneurs, we also have a large set of meticulously developed startup templates, sample files, and tools. Our team has built 25+ organizations, cumulatively operating for 200+ years.

We’ve spent the last 20+ years researching and experimenting in self-development, behavior change, and goal attainment. Over this time we’ve worked with hundreds of people in a 1-on-1 or small group setting and impacted thousands more indirectly. See our research on the UP intervention that has been borne out of that early work.

If any of this resonates with you, please reach out. We’d love to help you achieve all of your life goals, including your goals around living a radically long, happy, healthy, and meaningful life.
