The Daily Echo: How do you start your day? August 10, 2020

August 10, 2020

This morning I thought it would be fun to share how I start my day. Jocko Willink has his 4:00 AM Timex watch. Awesome. I’m thinking I’ll share my Oura data every day and how I quickly use that data to get a little better via a three-step process we teach our Optimizers and Optimize Coaches: 1. What’s working? 2. What needs work? 3. What will I do differently?

BOOM! Repeat. Aggregate and compound and let’s see what we’re capable of as we show up day in and day out for an extended period of time.

I also share my Breakfast of Champions and some more thoughts on the messy process of creativity! Now it’s time to hit the Trail and then take my kids to the zoo. 🙂 LET’S DO THIS. TODAY.

P.P.P.S. Kind words from some friends:

“Optimize is, bar none, my go to source for taking a time efficient deep dive into some of the world’s best books, without needing to read the whole book but instead getting quick, thorough, helpful summaries of exactly what I need to know. It’s an indispensable resource!”
~Ben Greenfield, author of New York Times bestselling books Beyond Training and Boundless

“One of my treasured morning rituals is reading the fascinating insight from Optimize. Every day, without exception, Optimize + 1 fuels me emotionally, intellectually and spiritually!”
~ Tal Ben-Shahar, Taught two of the largest classes in Harvard’s history, best-selling author of Happier

“I include Optimize +1 as part of my morning ‘Win in the Mind’ routine to charge me up for the day’s battles. If you’re serious about leading heroically, I recommend you use them too… Hooyah!”
~ Mark Divine, Retired U.S. Navy SEAL Commander, entrepreneur and best-selling author of Unbeatable Mind and The Way of the SEAL
