So many of these "gurus" telling us to take cold showers and cold plunges 😂 😂
If you’re tired all the time:
Stick to high-impact basics. These little micro-optimizations aren't going to change anything.
Enjoy your hot showers 🔥🚿
I’ve learned that no amount of coaching, fancy apps, “creativity hacks & tips” etc, will make up for:
Get these right first.
They are the highest impact things you can do.
Ignoring these is like a student ignoring the fundamental concepts needed to ace an exam and instead focusing on color-coding their notes, using fancy study apps, and organizing their study space with intricate decorations.
Master the basics. Everything else falls into place.
Most nonfiction books should've been 1000-word articles.
I find myself abandoning a lot of books right around the 25-30% mark.
Not because they're bad, but because I fully get the gist by that point and it's right around when the repetition of examples and ideas begins.
I'm okay with abandoning a book midway now. Just a couple years ago, I would power through the whole thing in fear of missing out on some crucial ideas in the later chapters.
Now, I just have fun with it. If it piques my interest, great – I'll buy it, read the chapters that seem interesting, get what I came for and move onto the next one.
I think a lot of these authors are just trying to meet some sort of quota. I dunno.
There's elegance in brevity.
The most space-efficient, complete, and affordable home gym setup you’ve ever seen:
Name a respectable exercise that can’t be done with the above setup.
Physique fully built on this setup.

The abdominal hernia I suffered at the end of last year forced me to be quite sedentary at the beginning of this year.
The lack of movement took a massive toll. I wasn't ready.
It affected many areas of my life. Both the physical and mental were impacted.
My digestion took a hit, mental clarity was at an all-time low, and anxiety was constant.
It's a big chain of events that lead to a negative feedback loop. If you're not moving enough, you won't be tired enough to sleep deeply. That sleep deprivation leads to an anxious and cloudy mind.
The only way out is daily movement.
Luckily, I recovered, got back to walking and resistance training daily – all negative symptoms were gone within a week.
