WORK LESS WEDNESDAY
📕 1. Book I Read This Week – DotCom Secrets by Russell Brunson
After reading Expert Secrets and raving about it last week, reading the first book in the “Secrets” trilogy was a no brainer.
Don’t get me wrong, DotCom Secrets isn’t bad. But Expert Secrets was exceptional.
I usually don’t suggest you NOT read something. But, there’s only so many hours in a day. Just go read Expert Secrets.
👀 2. Why I’m Peeing In A Cup This Week – Vessel
I’m playing around with Vessel, a cool at-home health testing kit.
Basically, you pee on a testing card once a week, and it gives you your exact readings on nutrient levels, including: B7, Cortisol, Ketones, Magnesium, pH, Hydration, and Vitamin C.
It then offers recommendations for foods, supplements, and lifestyle changes tailored to you in the app.
It’s pretty cool. On my first card I was high on Cortisol and low on Magenesium.
I’ll post the results of my next test on my IG stories!
☀️ 3. A Morning Routine Backed By Neuroscience –Andrew Huberman’s Morning Routine
I’ve experimented with a ton of morning routine variations over the years. You can see my latest iteration here.
This article highlights Stanford neurobiologist (and podcast host) Andrew Huberman’s science-backed morning routine. The highlights:
⏰ Wake up at the same time every day.
☀️ Get direct sunlight within 10-30 minutes of waking.
☕️ No caffeine for at least 90 minutes after waking.
📫 No email or social media for the first half of the day.
Sounds about right to me.
🎥 4. YouTube Video I Rediscovered – Tim Ferriss on Batching
As I was writing this post, I rediscovered a clip from Tim Ferriss talking about task batching.
It’s called “How Batching Can Help You Maximize Your Productivity.”
Check it out – it’s only 5 minutes long.
🐦 5. Twitter Thread You Need To Read – Sahil Bloom’s Most Valuable Razors
Here are my Top 3 Razors from the thread:
The Time Billionaire Razor – Time is our most precious asset. When choosing between two paths, choose the path that places the highest appreciation on the value of your time.
The Feynman Razor – Complexity and jargon are often used to mask a lack of deep understanding. If you can’t explain it to a 5-year-old, you don’t really understand it.
The Rooms Razor – If you have a choice between entering two rooms, choose the room where you are more likely to be the dumbest one in the room. Once you are in the room, talk less and listen more.
