BIOHACKING:
FAGUET’S RECIPE FOR A LIFE UPGRADE.

Optimum sleep + fitness + nutrition + supplements = one happy MRKTR πŸ€–πŸ“ˆ

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 his biochemistry 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.
  • OPTIMAL
    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 runsβ€Š. 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 neurobiologist therapist who focuses on helping high-performance people perform even better. With specific
    questions like “how do I… E
    nhance 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. πŸ˜‡

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.

TIME TO GO SHOPPING?
PRIVATE JETS ARE NOW ‘INSANELY CHEAP’

Imagine the ROI when you’re a mile high? πŸ›©

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%.

ATTN DIGITAL NOMADS:
YOU’RE DOING IT ALL WRONG!

Here’s why…

MUST LISTEN:
TIM FERRISS INTERVIEWS ‘SIR YES’

Sir Rich lives the dream. πŸ˜‰

We’ve all heard the Virgin story. But this isn’t your standard Sir Richard Branson interview. Especially considering it takes place while Branson, P.K.A ‘Doctor Yes’ is deep within the depths of Marrakech. Tim Ferriss gets deep with Sir Richard Branson and discusses:

  • The traumatic Hurricane Irma experience and his 10%
    chance of survival
    .
  • Growing up with dyslexia.
  • Tough love from his parents that built his resilience from an early age.
  • Why he invested in “clean meat”.
  • His excitement over blockchain & cryptocurrency.
  • How failing the record attempt for the fastest boat across the Atlantic made his eventual success that much sweeter.
  • Habits and life decisions he’s used to maintain high energy levels for decades.
  • Why taking big breaks from alcohol reduces feeling overwhelmed and unfocused.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
EVAN SPIEGEL

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. πŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ
A lot of people call him arrogant, but there’s no doubting Spiegel knows how to work the system. πŸŽ›
