These two ideas struck a chord.

Today, I read Naval’s “How To Win At Life… Without Getting Lucky”.  Two of the 8 bullet points Naval shared really struck a chord with me, so I decided to share those ideas here for all of you lovely people to enjoy and reflect on.

  • Forty-hour workweeks are a relic of the Industrial Age. Today, it’s best to function like an athlete – train and sprint, then rest and reassess.
  • The modern mind is overstimulated. The modern body is under-stimulated and overfed.  To restore an ancient balance, rely on meditation, exercise, and fasting. 

Not to pitch products I love… BUT, here are the apps I use for bullet point #2.

Meditation = Headspace
Exercise = Strong
Fasting = Zero
