Tim Ferriss has been instrumental in my shift in ‘lifestyle philosophy.’ Following the Four Hour Work Week, I think is one of his best books!
Tools of Titans is a series of chapters on high performers from Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Foxx, Tony Robbins, Carl Fussman, Peter H. Diamandis, Chris Sacca and more. One of my favourite quotes:
Casey Neistat – “You realize that you will never be the best-looking person in the room. You’ll never be the smartest person in the room. You’ll never be the most educated, the most well-versed. You can never compete on those levels. But what you can always compete on, the true egalitarian aspect to success, is hard work. You can always work harder than the next guy.”
Open by Andre Agassi
I'm obsessed with Tennis! This has probably been one of the BEST autobiographies I've ever read, to read about a man who hated the one thing he was so successful in. The paradox of working hard, finding success and feeling indifferent.
I loved this quote from Agassi's coach:
"When you make perfection your ultimate goal... you're making yourself miserable. There's about five times a year you wake up perfect, when you can't lose to anybody, but it's not those five times a year that make you a tennis player. Or a human being for the matter."

How to give a TEDx Talk
In 2017, I gave my first TEDx Talk ‘Decoding the Stigma of Personal Development.
