Nic Peterson is the founder of Mastery Mode and is regarded as one of the great philosophers and results leaders of our time. He can do such feats because he works and surrounds himself with the right people.
In this episode, we get into the intention intervention gap. We are paralyzing our actions by overanalyzing and overthinking the situation at hand. We talk a little bit about mental health and how the times have just changed differently.
