Section 1: Course introduction
WARM WELCOME TO YOU & Course introduction
Section 2: Finding life purpose
What exactly is this "life purpose" thing?
The mistake you should not make
Exercise to begin exploring your life meaning or curiosity
Next exercise: work and idle time in your space of interest
Role of education in finding life purpose: job vs. humanity/thinking/feeling
Are people and organizations handing you their purposes to work on?
What kind of a legacy do you want to leave for yourself?
How I discovered/discovering my life purpose by following my curiosity
Story from Dostoevsky about life purpose and not wasting time and urgency
Me me me vs. doing something bigger for some cause?

Also things you like, your curiosities, your interests and hobbies, things at which you feel you have natural talent. Also things you want to improve, people you like, things you have worked on in the past. 

This will give you a framework for finding the cross sections of everything you care about and would like to work on. 

Section 3: Mindfulness

In a moment, as though you step out of yourself, and have an observation about your external self or your internal mental process. Usually we gloss over these because life and days and moments move too fast. But mindfulness is all about tracing your thoughts and emotions by slowing down your mind and focusing on elements of yourself. Results are: helping reverse negative phenomenon, realizing where pain/negativity comes from, and is the beginning of your work to reverse your life in order to decrease pain/suffering and increase happiness.

Be non-judgmental, objective. Later you will synthesize the new found observations.

Benefits of mindfulness
Philosophical perspective and reason for mindfulness
How our changing technology and social environments effect our self awareness
Mindfulness exercise 1
Mindfulness exercise 2

You don't have to suppress or betray yourself anymore or discipline yourself or bide time before you can do what you want to do. Don't compromise your integrity. You are not in situations that compromise your self respect. Are most things you do DRAINING you? Or adding and energizing you?
