This is a serious bit of biohacking. Serge Faguet is a tech CEO who spent four to five years and a decent amount of cash manipulating hisbiochemistry to make himself become healthier, more productive and happier. He attacks six major blocks:
SLEEP HYGIENE – recommends sleeping device Oura Ring and waking up at the exact same time every morning. No excuses.
NUTRITION – Do not eat sugar in any form. Sugar is poison. Do not eat processed foods, eat mostly plants instead. He doesn’t drink any alcohol (screws up sleep). And, for three days a week, intermittently fasts – eating only once a day.
OPTIMAL EXERCISE – Spend majority of your gym time on hip-hinge exercises and non-gym days going for HIIT runs . Get a standing desk.
MENTAL HEALTH – Meditate. He swears it definitely works and recommends the book ‘Waking Up’ by Sam Harris.
PSYCHOTHERAPY – Also swears by regular appointments with his Stanford/Harvard neurobiologisttherapist who focuses on helping high-performance people perform even better. With specific
questions like “how do I… Enhance my intelligence? Eliminate bad mood days?Find it trivially easy to always chat with girls I find attractive?” Also…Never lie about anything to anyone.
MEDICAL TESTS – Discover your bugs and fix them if possible. Everyone has some bugs in some shape or form. Have blood tests, genetic tests and more.
SUPPLEMENTS & DRUGS – He takes Metfromin, Lithium, Modafinil and Hormones. To name a few… and even touches on a ‘Class A’ drug he feels should be legalised. 😇
Faguet works with a medical research team and advises what works for him doesn’t necessarily work for anyone else. Whether you believe in performance enhancements or prefer remaining au naturel – it’s an interesting read either way.

PRIVATE JETS ARE NOW ‘INSANELY CHEAP’
Imagine the ROI when you’re a mile high? 🛩
Purchasing your own private jet isn’t as crazy expensive as it used to be. There has been an upward curve of businesses and wealthy individuals buying second-hand planes at auction because the deal is too good to pass up.
The demand for brand spanking new private jets is on a downward trend forcing companies like Bombardier and Gulfstream to offer cut-price deals, but that hasn’t overhauled production or prevented the market from flooding.
To put this in context, a five-year-old jet is ‘only’ worth 54% of its original value now. In 2012, it would have been worth 64% of it’s original value. In 2008 it would have still been worth 91%.

Evan Spiegel had it pretty easy coming from a wealthy family. But he became co-founder and CEO of $25 billion dollar company Snapchat through craft and entrepreneurial balls of steel‼️
Co-founder Reggie Brown – who came up with the original idea – was kicked out with no equity after a disagreement during the early stages (he later sued, Snapchat settled for $157 million). Spiegel leveraged investments at the right time without losing control, and he rejected a mammoth offer from Facebook. 💸💸
A lot of people call him arrogant, but there’s no doubting Spiegel knows how to work the system. 🎛
