But that one easy to do lazy thinking one thing could do wonders for you.
I get into protracted discussion in seminars, on airplanes and sometimes standing in line for a coffee about how to “hack” you.
In other words how to make you a better version of you.
Super-human performance has ALWAYS fascinated me since the age of 11. That’s the age Rick Forman, my next door neighbor call me FAT! I asked him a question I have asked all top performers. You see, Rick was a top performer. He was fast (sprinting and distance speeds were awesome). He was lean. Yes, he was 16 but still he kept himself that way. He was always active and moving around. So a top performer in a teenage kinda way.
The question I asked him was…
What would you do if you were me and fat? He quickly replied… push myself away from the table before I was full and run with me everyday. So I did just that and it worked like a dream.
Yes it was. Easy to understand. I knew exactly what to do. I just implemented. Done!
That was 1978 sage advise then and now by the way. But… Back to present day.
On a recent airplane trip I was in a conversation about bio hacking and hacking everything a human could do to themselves. This went on for two hours and thirty-five minutes of the whole way from Seattle to Las Vegas.
The end result of the conversation was… wow she said so much to try and do. I said yes but you didn’t ask me the right question yet. I know all of the hacks and tricks but you ARE NOT READY for cold showers, caffeine naps, light exposure, Myo-sets in the gym or an intermittent fasting ketogenic carb cycling, paleo carnivore eating plan YET!
What’s the secret then?
What! Why not she protested? What is the question then? “What would you do if you were me?” I just spent over 2 hours getting to know this person. I discovered that yes, she could of benefitted from all of the hacks we discussed but only marginally. There was one thing that she disclosed to me that she needed to do first. This need to be handled before any of the other optimizations would make a difference. Do this one easy thing and you will multiply your productivity, health, cognitive functions and look better by doing so…
What she said. Tell me! What would you do if you were me?
I replied, prioritize this above all else. Make this happen everyday. Start and end it the same time everyday and try to get eight hours of it and you will be amazed of the results.
She said are you talking about…..?
