Evolve instantly helps unlock life's unlimited potential for living a happier, more joyful and fulfilling life.
"If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don’t bother trying to teach them. Instead give them a tool the use of which will lead to a new way of thinking" -Buckminster Fuller
Evolve offers immediate, short-term, and long-term benefits for personal growth and happiness. At first use, instant improvements can be felt in self-awareness, sense of holistic wellbeing, and positive feelings. With continued use, the tool uncovers and reinforces core values and patterns that bring inner happiness while reprograming subconscious self-limiting thoughts that obstruct success. In the long-term, intuitive self-awareness and a new way of opportunity-oriented thinking are ingrained as a new model of living and thinking that continuously lead to discovery of one’s true life’s purpose.
Evolve presents a timeless and general body of knowledge around mindfulness, neurogenesis, and conscious living in an accessible, minimalistic and free flowing guided interaction built on the Experience Sampling Method for data gathering. The process initially optimizes the physical functioning of the brain while uncovering thoughts that propel growth and gathering subjective data for reflection and actionable analysis.
Users check-in upon their choosing to observe and map emotion, feeling, behavior and thought to silence their mind and connect with a holistic sense of awareness and presence. Then, users optionally turn their attention towards appreciation by expressing a current statement of gratitude with native multi-media social sharing features for Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, email, and SMS. Finally, users choose and declare an actionable creative intention that is in line with their envisioned transformational growth goal. Users can be reminded choice through custom scheduled and randomized push-notifications. These reminders could be anything from a centering thoughts, a personal affirmation, a mantra, or simply something for their to-do list.
You'll notice that Evolve is open-ended in its definitions and terms of use. This was done intentionally so that the tool can be applied in a myriad ways for maximum flexibility for any user. Interpretation of both inputs and data results are left entirely up to the user so that they may create personalized baselines and evaluations. There are no prescriptions or heavy-handed normative instructions here. Every input and every output comes directly from the user. Evolve was created to be a technical tool that brings the inherent advantages of computer intelligence (data storage, repetitive tasks, and calculation) to bear on an inherently human process for conscious evolution. Evolve is a tool that helps develop a new way for unlimited thinking while presenting data analysis that helps users apply their attention in harmony with their authentic inner self.  In short, the tool is universal, but the journey is personal.
Evolve is the most definitive tool for gathering subjective metadata as a source for quantified-self data mining applications. Evolve capture just the right matrix of subjective attributes by providing immediate and long-term benefits to users in a user-friendly GUI.
Personal data never leaves a user’s device. All personal information is stored and analyzed locally.
