Becoming Minimalist with Ryan Nicodemus

Want more time, more money, more freedom, and more fun? Then this podcast episode is for you. As a long time Bruce Lee fan, I’ve always been an advocate for simplicity and minimalism.

It was like an epiphany when I heard Tyler Durden say, “We buy sh*t we don’t need with money we don’t have, to impress people we don’t like.” He talked about how the things we… continue reading.

Bulletproof and Jacked with Dr. John Rusin

As soon as I read one article by Dr. John Rusin I knew I had to have him on the podcast. He just gets it. And our training philosophies couldn’t be any more aligned. I found myself nodding my head and saying, “Yes, yes, YES!” as I read each sentence. It’s easy to tell someone to just do some big compound movements and go heavy. That doesn’t take a genius. But if you want to avoid injuries and maximize your performance over the long term there is so much more to it. You’ve gotta pay strict attention to the preparation… continue reading.

How to Be Your Most Authentic Self

I’ve been thinking and talking a lot about authenticity lately. A lot of people struggle with answering one of life’s most basic questions: “Who are you?” I’ve often had trouble answering that question, myself. But it’s something we all need to be able to answer. And we need to be happy and comfortable with that answer. If we’re not we need to make some changes. That’s why asking and answering it is a good practice. By doing so you find out where you stand and if you’re living in a way you can be proud of. If you’re not you… continue reading.

How to Dominate Your Morning

People hate mornings. They spend the first hour of the day hitting the snooze button, whining, pissing, moaning, and dreading the day ahead. You can choose to let your morning be like that, and walk around like a human raisin, shriveled up and empty of any inspiration, presence, and purpose. Or you can rise above the masses of mediocrity and take ownership over that first hour. You can choose to put yourself in the mindset to dominate, kick ass, and make the world around you better. You… continue reading.

Structure = Freedom: Rules For Life

The ability to do what you want, when you want, how you want. Freedom. That’s what we’re going after, and it’s why I recommend everyone cut out negativity, useless chores, and soul-sucking relationships. When you eliminate clutter, you create freedom. But too much freedom can be crippling. A life without rules opens you up to distraction and inefficiency. Tons of free time lulls you into the idea that you’ll just slip into the life if your dreams.  You can avoid that complacency by building structure and accountability… continue reading.
