My conversation with @Justinsua Su’a explores the strategies you need to be your best mentally to get asymmetric results…
You don't need more time, you need more focus. As Bruce Lee observed, "The successful warrior is the average man with laser like focus."
Our desire to be right is stronger than our desire to understand.
If you’re locked on to your desired destination, all progress is positive, no matter how slow. If you’re pointed in the wrong direction, it doesn’t matter how fast you’re traveling. As Michel de Montaigne observed, “No wind favors him who has no destined port.”
Today's actions create tomorrow's circumstances.
Interviewing @RamsNFL GM Les Snead soon. What do you want to know?
You can't have a long-term horizon if you can't handle short-term volatility.

The more ok you are with yourself, the less you need the approval of others.
Doing it right is expensive. Doing it wrong costs a fortune.
The clearer you are about your priorities, the easier you can say no.
Ignoring things that are irrelevant is more beneficial than noticing things that are relevant.
If you want to take control of your priorities, use a calendar and not a to-do list.
90 percent of success is not getting distracted.
My conversation with @davidasinclair on how to reverse the aging process and the three supplements he takes every day.…
Longevity is one of the best indicators of truth. Pay attention to things that don't change as much as you pay attention to things that do change.
Status drives human behavior.
Behavior follows environment.
All the energy you put into things you can't control comes at the expense of things you can control.
So under-appreciated: Give everyone you talk to your complete undivided attention.
Long-term thinking is how you handle short term consequences. The small steps that feel the hardest are often the ones that matter most in the end. Think in decades. Execute today.
Being nice is about you. Being kind is about someone else.
Avoiding regret is more important to happiness than avoiding failure.
A small change that can lead to asymmetric results. (I do a lot of thinking in the sauna, I recorded myself in there reflecting on an idea in real time).
You are compensated linearly if you're paid for following the process and achieving results. If you get paid for the result alone, you get paid non-linearly. The more judgment you can exercise, the more you can shift the reward from linear to parabolic.
“Never mistake activity for achievement.” — John Wooden

Sooner or later you realize everything comes down to mindset.
consistency unlocks potential.
“If you put fences around people, you get sheep. GIve people the room they need.” — William L. McKnight
The bigger the outcome, the more likely small things compounded to make it happen over time.
The greatest killer of happiness is comparison.
"When things go bad, don't go with them." — Elvis Presley
What starts as a temporary defeat can spiral into a permanent one. Everyone knows failure. What separates people is how quickly they rebound.
Short-term actions eventually become long-term weights.
Mastering yourself is the greatest superpower.
My conversation with @balajis Learn about: • The pros and cons of established democracies • The Russia-Ukraine situation • Web3/Crypto • Education • Legacy wealth • Which will dominate the future…
Shorter sentences with smaller words make more powerful points.
The thresholds you cross are: - Awareness - Knowledge - Understanding - Skill - Mastery
Depth of understanding: - I have been told - I have been shown - I have done - I have demonstrated - I have taught someone else
Success and failure are the accumulation of seemingly insignificant choices over a long period of time. Compounding is either working for you or against you. The gains or losses are too small to see until they’re too large to ignore.
So simple, so underrated: Listen when you want to argue.
Imagining what could go wrong doesn’t make you pessimistic. It makes you prepared
“Progress is impossible without change; and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” — George Bernard Shaw
Do less. Do it now. And do it right.
Fears are like quicksand. The longer you stand in them in them, the harder it is to move.
What desire starts discipline continues and ritual cements.
My conversation with @hubermanlab We go deep on: how light affects your sleep and energy levels, which supplements actually work, tips to control bad impulses, exercises to slow the aging process, and so much more.…
You don’t control the mountain, only the climb.
