Steven Kotler is an entrepreneur and writer whose work has appeared in just about every publication you can think of — New York Times, Forbes, Wired, TIME, you name it — and was nominated for a Pulitzer for his book “A Small Furry Prayer.” I wanted to have Steven on because he has a very unique focus in his latest book “Stealing Fire”: understanding peak human performance — not in an abstract sense, but the specific mechanisms that make people like world-class athletes, Navy SEALs, and entrepreneurs able to do the incredible things they do and more importantly, how that formula can be reverse-engineered and applied to YOUR life.

Parts of this episode are a bit more headier than what you may expect from this show – we geek out a little and throw around some science buzzwords – but what’s important isn’t that you remember of the buzzwords but understand the idea that there is a SYSTEM for this stuff, for unlocking your potential.

I’ve seen a lot of people trying to kind of cobble together their own system by mimicking the habits of successful folks and while that’s not a bad idea per se, the more you understand the underlying concepts and framework, the more you’ll be able to create a system with intention.

You know that this show is all about giving you uber practical, actionable stuff that you can put into practice TODAY and this episode is no exception – and this episode isn’t just for those who want to be hyper-achievers, it’s for literally anyone who wants to get shit done.
