There are many components to Quality of Life ... everyone needs certain basics in order to survive. More does not always mean better. More that offsets a deficit is good, but more merely to satisfy an addiction can be terribly bad!

A concept that has tried to put 'value' onto an individual ... but usually from a wrong perspective

HUMAN CAPITAL QUANTIFICATION (placeholder)

PEOPLE - THEIR VALUE, COST AND CONTRIBUTION
PEOPLE ... THEIR VALUE
A person ... a human being ... has a certain intrinsic value. This value is not normally expressed in money terms, in fact it is rarely numbered in any way at all.
An individual human life has a huge value. Young mothers often describe the value of their new baby as being 'priceless'.
For the purpose of numbering ... a human life may be assigned a value of 1,000,000 ... that is one million. This is not a million units of currency (e.g. dollars) but a specific measure related to human value or human capital.
PEOPLE ... THEIR COST
A person cannot survive without some basic needs ... food, water, shelter, clothes and some other supplies. These are the basic costs of human survival.
PEOPLE ... THEIR CONTRIBUTION
A person has capabilities that are able to be used in order to do things that enable needs to be satisfied.

THE TVA DYNAMIC OF PEOPLE AND THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE
THE CHANGES THAT HAPPEN OVER A LIFETIME
STAGES OF LIFE
A person lives a lifetime ... maybe short or long. The dynamic of a person's life changes over time depending on their stage in life.
When a person is born, all of this person's life is in the future. When a person is old, most of life is behind ... in the rear-view mirror. Very different components go into an understanding a person's value as the years pass from being born to being a senior and going through a series of stages.
CHILDREN / YOUNG PEOPLE
A concept that has tried to put 'value' onto an individual ... but usually from a wrong perspective
WORKING AGE ADULTS
A concept that has tried to put 'value' onto an individual ... but usually from a wrong perspective

SEGMENTATION OF THE POPULATION (I)
DIFFERENT WAYS PEOPLE GROUP TOGETHER

DEMOGRAPHIC SEGMENTATION
People do different things and have different needs and priorities. Segmentation to understand this is essential to manage for better outcomes and less inequality. Different people have different interests. Basic needs are similar, but wants change between different classes of people.
AN INDIVIDUAL
Every individual should be a positive part of the global system ... everyone ... not just those with wealth and power and therefore influence!

Family has been an important component of society for thousands of years ... and still important!

PERSONAL FINANCE
BUILDING MONEY WEALTH AND FINANCIAL SECURTY

PERSONAL FINANCE
Personal financial issues are not well understood by most people ... and massive amount of exploitation by banks, corporates and business in general.
THE ROLE OF WEALTH
An individual's wealth (financial capital) is only one contributing part of what makes up a person's quality of life ... an individual's human capital, but only a part.
Human capital in the present has been achieved by an individual's history … such things as parenting, nutritious food, good healthcare, good education, good surroundings, role models and so forth. Skills and experience are accumulated over time. There is a historic cost to getting these things, but the value accumulation is reflected in the present. Past earnings that are not spent but saved, factor into the human capital of the present.

Human Capital is valued from the perspective of the individual. This is not the same as the value of human capital from the employer perspective.
A person's history (TO COME)
A person's history factors into the value of human capital. It is history that has enabled the present and opens the potential of the future
A person's surroundings(TO COME)
A person's surroundings together with history factor into the value of human capital. It is surroundings that influence the state of quality of life in the moment.
A person's future surroundings(TO COME)
A person's future surroundings together with a person's history factor in the opportunities and future potential ... which when discounted back to the present are a part of the present state of quality of life

I am curious about what all of you think about your QUALITY OF LIFE?
A message sent to a small group to test the TVM idea about how QUALITY OF LIFE performance might be assessed
SENT date: Tue, Apr 17, 2018 at 2:42 PM FROM: Peter Burgess TO: Frank Wennin A M Gover , Richard Flyer , Abe Duran , Billy Spearman , Bud James , Steve Gronka , Charles Stewart , Micky Metts , John G Root Jr , Eco Lake

subject: Re: A Map for Profound Wellness.

Dear Frank et al,

I am curious about what all of you think about your QUALITY OF LIFE?

What are the elements that go into giving you YOUR quality of life?

For myself, these are the various issues that I think about ... for myself, and also for others:

ACCESS to a variety of things that matter:
(1) Clean air
(2) Clean water
(3) Healthy food
(4) Energy
(5) Healthcare
(6) Education / skills training
(7) Transport
(8) Physical safety / security
(9) Religious / spiritual freedom
(10) Recreation
(11) Cultural activities
(12) Community cohesion

MY OWN STATE OF:
(a) Happiness
(b) Home / shelter
(c) Material goods
(d) Job / employment / income
(e) Opportunities
(f) Health / Wellness
(g) Wealth
(h) Relationships / family
(i) Relationships / friends
(j) Stress
(k) Longevity

As to measurement, it is difficult to get at an 'absolute' number that has any meaning. On the other hand it is much easier to get some measure that is 'relative' and will show trends.

So ... my current thinking in this regard is as follows:

* ... For each of the above elements, consider 1 to be the value that reflects a decent quality of life ... from your individual perspective.

* ... For each of the elements, then give each a number that reflects how you are relative to a decent quality of life ... so 0.5 will represent being a long way short of being where you want to be, and 1.5 will reflect you being at a situation that is really very good.

* ... Do this exercise for how you figure you are at the present time.

* ... Then do the same thing, thinking back to where you were at some time in the past ... a year ago ... or perhaps 10 years ago.

* ... Then do it again, but this time thinking forward to where you can reasonably expect to be in a year's time into the future.

I would love to get feedback about this framework for assessing the progress for quality of life . I have tried to make it relatively easy and simple while compiling something that is really useful. Though I have gone though many iterations of this idea already, but would welcome independent input and fresh views. It is entirely possible that I am too close to this to be objective any more.

With best regards

PeterB
