What is H.P.E.?
The brief answer is that we look at factors that can affect a person's performance and abilites. Then we modify them for the benefit of the person. While good, this is not simply a combination of exercise, nutrition, and positive thinking. H.P.E. looks at the total person in the total environment, and at least 19 factors. H.P.E can be useful for serious or amateur athletes, business persons, professionals, students, and by anyone devoted to personal development and goal attainment.
The formal definition is H.P.E. is Human Performance Environmentology, the study and use of inputs, affectors, and environments, both internal and external to the person, that affect human functioning and performance, for the purpose of developing a person so that they may reach goals in a positive healthy way.

Answers To Questions From Guests
A college professor from Kentucky asked about the website,”Is it associated with any religion?”
I thought what a strange question. Nonetheless, the answer is no, the website is not associated with any religious or political endeavor.
"Hi Neighbor! Is it about greatness?"
I heard a public speaker who was also a reverend a few times during the holiday season of 2018 and approaching New Year of 2019. This was in Florida. Ads and banners proclaimed being caring to others with slogans like Everyone Loved. The gentleman was initially reminiscent of Mister Rogers of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood fame. I have always had an admiration for Fred Rogers. He promoted learning and growth in a thoughtful way while being a kind person. His show was about becoming an understanding and developed human being. It was in this hope that I went.
The Florida lecturer introduced himself and requested my contact information. Following this things changed. The next presentation was more like a demotivational speech with some mentioning of our communication. Being average was promoted and goal achievement was looked upon with skepticism.
"I would like to have a talk with you," the tall fellow said in seriousness.
"That would be nice. I look forward to it," I replied with a smile.
He never followed up, but his comment about "everyone wanting to be great" needs to be addressed. H.P.E. is not about ego, far from it. H.P.E. began as a desire to reach needed goals in life through positive means. It promotes human development in a healthy way while being aware of the power of environments and neural affectors. There is nothing special in me, but something very special happens when we create technology and surroundings that support us. Perhaps the best place to be is in a friendly neighborhood with a kind person who is glad we are there.

"What can I do to improve attention?" asked the fellow working in the grocery. We had a pleasant talk and I promised him an article for informational purposes. It covers many things that can affect our focus and brain functioning. It may be of interest to those with attention deficit or ADD/ADHD concerns. For Attention All! Improve Mental Focus And Avoid EDD! click here. If you are wondering about the legitimacy of ADD, if giftedness is involved, and how this all came about, the question of Are Disorders Invented And Have We Been Wickerdoodled? is here and may be worth reading.
