I learned a TON in this book.
Here are my 10 things I’m adding to my daily schedule from the first reading of the book:
1. Morning cocktail: add salt to my lemon water and make it room temperature, the night before.
2. Do Wim Hoff breathing technique before the cold shower, increase length of time for cold shower.
3. Be outside when sun comes up, can do it with my journaling, meditation, exercise. 10 minutes of sunshine minimum.
4. Use scent in office and workspace to help get into flow. Set an environment to focus and get after it. Essential oils for focus and productivity.
5. Create your own ethos, your own mantra, “Go hero go,” as example.
6. Evening playtime. You earned it. Best time for “me” or “we” time. Schedule Laura time.
7. Specific supplements and food help with very specific needs. Ginger, chocolate, wine at night. Aww, yeah.
8. Use driving mindfulness techniques. Wide gaze, take it all in. Use as practice to lengthen time between stimulus and response. Exercise in the time when anger is usually the worst.
9. Pro usage: aura rings for sleeping, lights for the ears, special yogurt, onnit supplements, get a rebounder for the morning.
10. Body weight exercises like the bear crawl, sit throughs, 23 burpees are enough.
11. 4 things to do for yourself: I love you, I’m sorry, I forgive you, thank you.
Yeah, it’s 11. I’m not bound by limits.👍
The author’s advice (on everything from shower temperature to dealing with hangovers) isn’t bad. The only problem is that there is too much of it, and it is too varied. If this book were a college course, it would take a full semester to cover, and the test would be overwhelming.
Also, for anyone who keeps up with the science on heath, fitness, or productivity, there’s not much that is new here. Lots of recipes (mashed potatoes!), lots of tips, lots of damn rules—many based on science, some based on opinion.
The most interesting chapter to me was chapter 13: “More, Better Sex.” Of course it was. But not even that chapter held my interest—too many scientific study citations (though I was amused by the story of the monkey who over-spanked himself).
The author believes his advice is ground breaking: “If you want conventional nutrition, conventional sex, or conventional anything…this is the wrong book for you.” But, despite his attempts to sound otherwise, it’s all routine.
For example, the author considers the use of kettlebells in weight training unconventional. True, we didn’t have them in the high school field house 25 years ago. But now? Every yoga pants clad hottie is swinging one.
Eat well. Sleep well. Do your work. Exercise. Play. For the people who are not already doing these things, the author’s plan will be overwhelming. For those who do, there’s nothing new.
This book does a great job reinforcing positive habits and teaching new ones. I cannot wait to start my second listen!
