  • “It Could Always be Worse” - Joe De Sena

    If we think about our daily lives and our stresses, we might realize just how superficial they really are. We might worry about what other people think of us, what we wear or if we responded to a work email correctly. We aren’t worried about where we are going to eat next or if we’ll have shelter. Joe’s whole purpose for his races is to get us in that mindset. Away from all the stresses of everyday life and just survive. It gives you a new sense of what is actually important, and that it is not material things. 

  • “Play! Play More!” - Jason Nemer

    When asked what he’d put on a billboard, Jason easily responded with, “Play! Play more”. He said he feels people are “too serious” and “it really doesn’t take much…to drop back into the wisdom of childlike playfulness”. The two things he’d prescribe to improve health and happiness are movement and play because they are intertwined and you can’t have one without the other.

  • "Discipline Equals Freedom" - Jocko Willink

    Jocko says that if he had to put something on a billboard it would be “discipline equals freedom”. This seems a little contradictory at first, but he essentially means that you can use positive constraints to increase perceived free-will and results. While you might think having nothing to do all day is the dream, it can actually be daunting because you continually have every option available to you. You’ll have to think about “what to do next” all day which can lead to decision fatigue.

  • "Give the Mind an Overnight Task" - Reid Hoffman

    Almost every single day before sleeping Reid Hoffman jots down problems in a notebook that he wants his mind to work on overnight. He says that “most of our thinking is subconscious” and he wants to use the relaxation and rejuvenation period during sleep to possibly bubble up thoughts and solutions to the problem he wrote out.
  • "Pick the Right Audience to Suck In Front of." - Tracy DiNunzio

    Tracy gives advice for those pitching to investors. She says, “make your first 10 meetings with investors you don’t really want funding from, because you’re probably going to suck in the beginning”. This concept is originally about pitching to investors, but can be applied to anything. If you have a big dance recital coming up, start showing your friends and family, then a larger group of people and eventually you’ll be ready for the big stage!
  • "Review Your Three Wins of the Day." - Peter Diamandis

    One thing Peter emphasizes because of the difference it’s made in his life is his practice of  “[reviewing his] three wins of the day” everynight before bed. For many people, if something bad happens, we tend to obsess over it or let it take over our whole day resulting in a bad day instead of looking at it as one bad event. If we make a focused effort to look at the good things in our day before sleeping though, we’ll separate the bad events and not let it consume our whole day.
  • "Don’t Accept the Norms of Your Time." - Neil Strauss

    Neil Strauss commented that he’d like to write a book about the way his billionaire friend’s mind worked. He was interested in how a billionaire’s mind differed from someone who wasn’t a billionaire and his friend commented, “The biggest mistake you can make is to accept the norms of your time”. When you don’t accept the norms, or things just the way they are is when you can innovate. This can be “with technology, with books, [or] with anything”. 

  • "Chill Out. Calm Down." - Justin Boreta

    Justin Boreta gives advice for his 20 year old self, he says, “Chill out. Calm down”. As a 20-something myself, I think this is so important to remember. I catch myself getting completely overwhelmed and stressed out about something that in a week works itself out. Justin sums up how things don’t always have to be fully planned out a certain way, “it doesn’t matter as much as you think it does”. Once you really take the time to think about it, I’m sure you can find quite a few examples of how things didn’t go as you planned them and they still worked out.

  • "Do Less Than You Can and Take One Breath A Day" - Chade-Meng Tan

    Have you ever wanted to make your bed every morning or workout everyday and found you were able to do it for a few days, maybe a week, but not more than that? Why is that? Most likely, it’s because we try to do too much too fast. If our goal is to do a 1 hour workout everyday, but currently we workout for 30 minutes 3 days a week, we should start by trying to do just 10-15 minutes everyday. That way it’s less burdensome than the 30 minutes, but we’re committing to some kind of movement everyday. Then, once we’ve mastered that, we can make it a longer workout each day.
  • "Don't Overestimate the People on Pedestals" - Marc Andreessen

    Get inside the heads of the people who made things in the past and what they were actually like, and then realize that they're not that different from you”. You could be the next Steve Jobs or Bill Gates. Marc emphasizes how at the time they invented their life-changing thing, “they were kind of just like you…so there’s nothing stopping any of the rest of us from doing the same thing”.
  • "Happiness is a Choice That You Make and a Skill That You Develop" - Naval Ravikant

    Naval says, “you choose to be happy, and then you work at it. It’s just like building muscles”. Easy-peasy, right? At first going to the gym everyday is a chore, it’s really really hard, but you wake up and make yourself go no matter what. Eventually it becomes a habit and you might actually enjoy it. It is something you have to do every single day, and eventually you will get better at it. Everyday you have to decide you are going to be happy and then make it happen. You have to take the time to put things into perspective to appreciate what you have.
  • "Games are Unnecessary Obstacles that We Volunteer to Tackle" - Jane McGonigal

    We’ve all played games where we lose a challenge and have to start over. A simple example is the Nintendo game Super Mario Bros. When you hit a mushroom and Mario falls off the screen, you instantly hear sad tones and the level restarts. When that happens, you don’t just give up and do something else, do you?
