Welcome to thejakestarmovement.com!
This is the philosophy of thejakestarmovemnt:
Focus on your process
learning is the key not outcome
This site is under construction and will continue to evolve over the coming years. At present, it is mainly a safe space to host Experience Lost: thejakestarmovemnt podcast. After 8 years of stability living with bipolar mood disorder, the podcast captures Jake’s struggles to return to even keel after manic relapses that have resulted in unpredictable bouts of depression since February of 2017. In that time, despite the instability in his mood state, Jake finished his PhD thesis, graduating in April 2018, and has begun his first postdoc at Imperial College London. I hope you find those recordings useful if you also struggle with managing a mental illness, as Jake’s struggle to find even keel again is still an ongoing process that tends to dominate the podcasts. Hidden among the mood journal type focus, Jake is still trying to figure out what thejakestarmovemnt actually is. All Jakestar knows is that focusing on learning and not outcome is a core tenet to thejakestarmovemnt. The eventual goal is to create a neuroscience based philosophy in support of that line of thinking, but one step at a time for now.
