Do you ever work hard and still fall short of your goal? It's frustrating when we muscle through a project and can't achieve our desired results. Today's guest, Dave Asprey, used to experience this frustration every day. He was in a mental fog, unfocused, and overweight... then he spent two decades and over $1,000,000 learning how to hack his biology, and he started a massive movement. Dave is now the founder of Bulletproof, author of a New York Times bestseller, and his new book is Head Strong: The Bulletproof Plan to Activate Untapped Brain Energy to Work Smarter and Think Faster-in Just Two Weeks. He's on the show to share the subtle tweaks you can make in your diet and environment to boost productivity, both mentally and physically.
