Ep. 243: Jerzy Gregorek On Establishing Standards Of Mastery And Meeting Them

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by a past guest from a year ago, someone who has actually won 4 world championships in Olympic weightlifting! Incredible, right? His name is Jerzy Gregorek, and the reason I wanted him back on the show was that I felt like he had more to share after our last conversation - and I was right!

In this episode, we talked about standards in general, as well as about establishing standards of excellence. We talked about motivation, how Jerzy motivates people that he coaches, and how he motivated himself to get 4 world championships in addition to earning poetry awards and an MFA in writing. This is what we call completely cross-disciplinarian! We also talked about how he motivated the people that he coached at UCLA, as well as how he got to work with people like Tim Ferriss.

As you can probably imagine, this is a really interesting episode! I enjoy talking to Jerzy because of his ability to spin a story and tell you a mind-blowing tale - he has that kind of life wisdom and experience. I'm sure you will enjoy this episode as well!

Ep. 242: Nir Eyal On Defeating Distractions The Right Way And Becoming Indistractable

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Nir Eyal, an author, speaker, and thought leader. Nir writes, consults, and teaches about the intersection of psychology, technology, and business. Actually, the MIT Technology Review dubbed him the prophet of habit-forming technology after his last book Hooked went supersonic and became a best-seller in pretty much every place you can imagine.

By the way, many people don't realize that Nir has also founded 2 tech companies since 2003, he's taught at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford, and he's invested in a whole bunch of incredibly successful companies like Worklife, Product Hunt, Refresh.io and Eventbrite, in addition to many more. You've probably also seen his writing in HBR, Techchrunch and Psychology Today.

Wow! So, why have someone who is an expert in technology - and habit-forming technology at that - on the show. Well, actually Nir and I have intersecting interests besides the fact that we are both children of Israelis and Hebrew speakers. Nir has recently written an all-new book, which is called Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. Now, as many of you already know, I've recently invested a ton of time working with an expert in my life to create a Digital Zen course and help people figure out how they can put control and controls back on their technology use and get their life back in order, digitally speaking.

I was really excited to pick Nir's brain and learn more. I have to say that, before we hopped on the interview, I asked Nir what would make this a huge success for him, and he had a really untraditional answer. Most guests answer that having a great conversation on the topics they are passionate about is what they are looking for, but Nir answered: "If I blow your mind or completely change the way you see an aspect of life, that'll be a huge win for me" - and I have to say that he did not disappoint.

I really enjoyed this conversation, and I can guarantee you will enjoy it as well!

Ep. 241: Why Your Biology Affects Your Productivity That Much W/ Kate Northrup

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Kate Northrup. Kate is an author, an entrepreneur, a mom, and much much more. She specializes in a couple of different areas that I am really passionate about, including money and why we should use it in intelligent and conscientious ways to actually make our lives and the lives of those we love better, and also including one of my most favorite topics, productivity.

Kate recently published an all-new book in addition to her first best-selling book, Money, A Love Story. Her new book is about the cycles in which we can become more productive at specific things during specific periods in the month. I have to say that her method is tailored more towards women who have a cycle, but it is actually very interesting to anyone listening, not just because we all have women in our lives, but also because it turns out that even men have these kinds of cycles and can be more effective at different things at different times in the month.

I really enjoyed the conversation, I learned a lot, and we talked about so much more than just those few things. Please enjoy!

Ep. 240: Deeply Optimizing Your Health And Becoming Unstoppable W/ David Hauser

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by David Hauser. David is a former tech entrepreneur, and you've probably heard of some of his companies, ranging from Grasshopper to Chargify - but this is not why we had him on the show today.

David is on the show this week because he had a health breakdown, which completely changed the way he looked at health. In fact, he has a new book coming out very soon on how he has applied the methodology of A/B testing that he learned in the world of software companies to find the perfect health regimen for himself. Now he wants to teach the rest of the world how to do the same.

I'll let you hear all about this by David directly. Enjoy!

She has written two books on finding your fit and figuring out what works for you when it comes to fitness and nutrition.

I wanted to have Kathleen on the show to talk about the ways that we can find motivation (for exercise or otherwise), how she is helping clients achieve their optimal fitness, as well as the ways that we can utilize to choose what is right for us out of the million things that are recommended on this podcast!

It's a really enjoyable conversation, and I think you are going to love listening to it.

Ep. 238: Transforming Our Relationship With Money W/ Aggie Kowalski

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

I have to confess that today's episode will make some of you a little bit uncomfortable, but I want you to push through that. That is because the topic today is money, and the mindset around money - a topic I've been very interested in for many years now.

Some of the important questions to ask are: What does money mean in your life? What relationship do you have with money? How do you use money, and how do you use it to actually make your life and those of the people you care about better?

To help you answer all these questions, we are joined by Aggie Kowalski, who is a mindset coach who teaches the missing piece to money and wealth manifestations. With her therapy background, she has studied thousands of success patterns used to develop her unique method - permission to prosper™️ - which she uses to coach entrepreneurs, real estate agents, artists, actors, and other people in breaking their income ceilings to create a new money reality. You may have seen Aggie in popular media like Forbes, Thrive Global, USA Weekly, and Bustle, demonstrating how to neutralize manifestation blocks around wealth and success.

Now, how many of you - be honest - are a little uncomfortable talking about money, or are at least a little stressed out of the way money does or doesn't show up in your life? Well, I want you to pay special attention to this episode, because it's not just about how to make more money, it's also about how to be happier with money, it's about how to be more at peace with your own money situation, and it's also about how to push through all these things to find prosperity, happiness, and mental health around money.

I really enjoyed this episode. You'll see we just talked and talked, and I didn't ask any of the standard questions - which is usually a sign that I'm having a lot of fun! I'm sure you will enjoy this just as much!

Ep. 237: Tackling Amazing Learning Challenges Through Ultralearning W/ Scott Young

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Scott H. Young. Scott is a writer who undertakes interesting self-education projects, such as attempting to learn MIT’s four-year computer science curriculum in twelve months and learning four languages in one year. His recent book, Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition and Accelerate Your Career is published by Harper Business August 6th, 2019, the exact same date that this episode came out.

I wanted to have Scott on the show because for many years I've been following his work - I think that the way he approaches learning challenges is super interesting. We obviously share the same interests and passions - in fact, we are both publishing a book around the same time.

I actually pushed my book's launch back for a month because Scott told me that he is publishing now, and we thought it's a better idea for both of us to have a fair margin of time between the two launches. Scott is one of the few people I respect so much that I'm willing to delay my book's launch for.

I wanted to bring Scott on the show to learn how we are similar in our beliefs, how we are different, and find out what we can learn from each other when it comes to - well, you guessed it - learning.

This is a super fascinating episode, which I'm sure you will thoroughly enjoy!

Ep. 236: The Mindset And Mentality To Physically Perform At A High Level W/ Ryan Hall

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by an Olympian and half-marathon record holder, Ryan Hall. Ryan is the recently published author of Run the Mile You're In, a story about how he found his way from a self-proclaimed lousy runner to being a record holder and two-time Olympian. Since achieving so much in running, he has made the transition from a runner to a quite accomplished weight lifter.

In the episode, we talked about Ryan's story, and we talked about the mindset and mentality that it takes to get to the level of performance that Ryan achieved. Moreover, we talked a little bit about his charity work, and we talked about his advice for getting your body into peak performance states.

I really enjoyed this conversation, and I know you will too!

Ep. 235: Retraining And Taking Control Of Our Breathing W/ Marco Tesi

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Marco Tesi. Marco has 10 years of experience working with people and creating holistic treatment plans, which include unique breathing and movement techniques to retrain your body and mind to achieve better health. He has a Bachelor degree in Sports Science, and a Master in Sport and Human Health Development.

Recently, I have become very interested in breathing - I know we all do it, but I wanted to find a way to do it better. I started doing the Wim Hof method after Wim Hof was on the show, but since then I've started trying to find other ways that we can improve our breathing, and thus our health.

So, Marco came on the show to talk to us about the importance of breathing and, I know this sounds ridiculous, how to do it right - and it turns out we all have something new to learn.

I know you guys are going to enjoy this episode with Marco Tesi, because I did as well!
