Current health experiments I’m running:

• Sleep, HRV, and recovery tracking with @whoop
@Levels continuous glucose monitoring
@getlief HRV / stress tracking

Treating your health as a data-driven science experiment has never been easier or more satisfying.
Some background:

• Played football in college at 280, weighing in at 185 three years later.

• Have followed a low-carb eating style to lose the weight, now looking to see if what the optimal diet is for long-term stable energy levels

• Interested in general optimization
Current goals using this data:

1. Find the optimal nutrition plan for blood sugar and energy stability

2. Increase HRV for stress management and improved recovery

3. Find the variables that most impact sleep quality and optimize accordingly

4. Complete sub-40 minute MURPH
Current nutrition plan (and what I’ve found yields the most stable blood sugar)

~20 hour daily fasts (2pm-6pm feeding window)

Primarily meat and vegetables with added carbs only when blood sugar dips below ~70
Current sleep plan (what works best for me)

9 to 4:45 AM like clockwork. I’m fortunate to be a single 25-year old who answers to no one.

I sleep on a ChiliPad (highly recommend) in a blacked out room with earplugs and 20-lb weighted blanket.

My sleep latency is under a minute
Should I write some Atomic Essays on my approach to general health and experiments I’m running?

Today is my 25th birthday.

I thought about writing a thread with “important things I’ve learned in my first 25 years.”

But the truth is, I’m 25.

I don’t know shit.

Instead, here are a few important things I hope to learn in my next 25 years:
1. I hope to learn what it feels like to go all in on something.

I’m young and in my exploration phase, trying my hand at everything I can.

But at some point, I need to go from breadth to depth.

Dabbling in many things is a hedge.

True wealth comes from concentration.
2. I hope to learn what big public failure feels like.

Every person at the top of their field can point to transformational failures.

They made a big bet, failed, and learned from it. And that failure propelled them forward.

The best part? The world forgets your big failures.

Content strategy, 101

1. Find a topic you’ve learned a lot about in the last two years.

2. Create content for your two-years-ago self.

• Best resources
• 80/20 one-pager
• Common misconceptions
• How you’ve changed since learning

Boom - you’ve built an audience.
And this is the best type of audience to build - group of like-minded people on similar journeys as you, just a few steps behind.

You’ve already solved all of their problems!

Now you share your solutions with them.
And people prefer to learn this way.

It’s way easier to learn from someone barely ahead of you than someone at the top of their field.

And the best time to teach is as you’re learning, no when you’ve got it all figured out.

@TwitterSpaces dominates @joinClubhouse

~95% of Clubhouse traffic originates on Twitter.

~95% of people talking in Clubhouse rooms are scrolling Twitter at the same time.

If Twitter can seamlessly integrate Spaces, it's a no-brainer.

THREAD: I've thought a lot about what it means to be wealthy.

But putting a "number" on it is a one-way ticket to the rat race.

Instead, here are 10 indicators of wealth (which have nothing to do with money):

Wealth is the ability to choose:

• How you spend your time
• Where you spend your time
• Who you spend your time with

Learned from the wise @jamesclear

Wealth is freedom from:

• Negative people
• Negative thoughts
• Negative emotions
• Forced obligations

@EricJorgenson's Almanack of @naval says it best:

Wealth is not freedom to, it's freedom from.

High signal @joinClubhouse conversation on audience building with these great minds:

• @gregisenberg
• @SahilBloom
• @businessbarista
• @jackbutcher
• @magdalenakala

Here were seven valuable takeaways from each of them:

From @gregisenberg:

There's a difference between audiences and communities.

A good test from @theSamParr: if the leader of the community stops engaging in it, does it survive?

If it does, you have a community.

If it doesn't, you have an audience.

From @SahilBloom:

The number one focus should be to create content that provides tremendous value.

Once you're sure it's providing value, hustle for distribution and promote it with pride.

Give 10x or 100x more than you receive, and the rest takes care of itself.
