I have found, talking less and listening more... asking questions is ideal.

at 2:43 Tim says "Running for 10,20,30 miles and listening to the same song" is a form of mindfulness, can someone please elaborate on how that might be a similar mindfulness effect to meditation?

Tim have you ever performed Vishan Lakhiani's 6 phase guided meditation on the Omvana app it's probably the best meditation practice I have ever used, try it sometime and let me know your thoughts. Thanks for the great content by the way.

This is complete bullshit. Even if it helps you, it's still complete bullshit because what's actually helping you is simply making the right decision for once.

Being productive is about setting priorities. Mindfulness and meditation encourages setting priorities.

Delete your social media and throw your tv out the window. Then make lists every day and habitually ask yourself "what is my next action"? Then perform those actions without fail.
The running with only one song for an extended period of time really grabbed my attention; Does anyone think they could explain the reasoning behind why it essentially serves the same purpose as meditation? Thanks!
ALEX O'BRIEN (7 months ago)
Hey dude, don't know whether you see this. But, I'll nevertheless will leave a reply. In Buddhism(I'm a Buddhist writing) meditation is not just focusing on your breath. Meditation can be focusing on anything. I do a few, loving kindness, death nature of humans, breath and even my workout. Doing something with a single focus itself is a meditation. There are 42 postures to be exact as said In Buddhist texts that I said we can use to meditate. The Buddha himself used walking as a meditation everyday. Likewise anything is possible to take as an meditation and is very beneficial. Music is also one great to let mind be focused over hearing the same songs everyday or during a certain activity. Every morning after a workout, I take a shower while listening to same 4 songs everyday. And then, I write for an hour. When our brain realise the patterns it has less difficulty in getting ourselves focused. That's one reason habits can make or break us. Hope you or any other reading this found this valuable. For any further clarifications please let me know, I'll reply below. Thank you and have a great day ♥️

funny how it's the VCs asking people how they would achieve everything in a short amount of time...implying that they should. Of course, to do that in the business world you're going to need massive amounts of capital and for that there are VCs.

"Why can't I achieve my 10 year goals in the next 6 months?" -- I don't know if you're quoting Thiel wrong or if that's how he originally said it. Either way it's slightly off. The better question is "How could I do this in 6 months, instead of 10 years?" the subtle difference being your brain will instantly begin to answer *how* it can be done, instead of the reasons *why* it isn't possible. https://youtu.be/PnLUpoU714M?t=4m5s

Here's a question: why do you always sit like such a ferry?
Scott K (1 year ago)
Here's my favorite trick for being productive. It's called doing it anyway. Just make a deal with yourself. From here on out, every time you think of a reason not to get something done, just do it anyway.
Taga Way (8 months ago)
Scott K what the hell? Is this a joke? I'm laughing at the fact I think this is an actual advice and not a joke, And since I'm going out anyways to do one emergency (the cats need food) I'll actually do things I was going to do tomorrow because I feel lazy - go to the laundromat - grocery shop for the house too - bank - do my eyebrows.

Thanks, Tim. I was a serious competitive distance runner for about 10 years of my life and ran at a nationally competitive level for about 5 of those years. I can honestly say that running was one of the most beneficial things to my life in a number of ways and that it had a profound impact on my mind and "spirit." I definitely came to view it as meditation and attribute much of my success in life (work, relationships, personal goals, etc) to these meditative runs. I realize running is not everyone's thing, but I can strongly recommend running as a form of meditation and something that can be used alone or in conjunction with more conventional forms of meditation.

I would never replace my now 25 year practice of TM with any other practice called meditation. TM has a cumulative effect over time. Running or listening to another is contemplation not meditation, at least not as I have experienced it.

1. do morning meditation - start small and increase gradually 2.asking great questions why can't you achieve your 10 year goals in 6 months how to getbetter ? 1.study great interviews
Press B To Crouch (2 years ago)
Good vid.. Well I just do very simple meditation in the morning and at night (15 min). Mainly just counting my breaths to start with and within a few minutes Bamm! I'm in a meditative state. I think people can make meditation complicated when really it can be very simple.

Meditation and asking questions
zzz (2 years ago)
I feel like meditation is way too overrated lately. Whenever I do that, it doesn't really help me as much as what these guys claim. Maybe it's just me who did it wrong? I don't know because I've followed many guide video, download various meditation app, but it doesn't seem right for me. To be honest, the feeling of "doing nothing, thinking nothing" gives me anxiety. For some reasons, I have that need to be busy, a bit stressed, and 'being on the go'.
Mind Tribe (4 months ago)
Yo zzz, personally, I have run into the same issue, although I personally have a prayer habit in place of meditation. I found that something which might be helpful if you can't exactly relax on command (lol) is try different modalities such as 16/8 time restricted evening. For some reason, at around 12 hours since the last meal, my ability to both feel calm and focus are heightened.

011azr to gain full benefits of meditation, you must make it a habit, not something you do once in a while
shawarmageddonit (2 years ago)
"It's not being egotistical or egocentric, I think -- it's being human." Boom. Gold, right there, in a remark of secondary relevance to the topic. Just like in his books.

Meditation (daily) and asking great questions (to people and yourself): ✓
My Thoughts (2 years ago)
Michael Lewis talked about this indirectly. He said his little girl likes the frozen song too much and listens all day. He started liking it too. And from that moment on he gets in the zone of writing his new books by putting that song on repeat. Even though it has words it is so repetitive that the words lose meaning and they don't even register when you listen to it but you are completely focused on the work. Also you will not have other thoughts or negative thoughts when you sit for hours because the small attention that would go to wandering around or having negative thoughts now goes to the little song you play and the majority of the attention will go to the work.

Tim ain't got no time for an actual interview where 80+% of the questions don't come from Charlie Rose, Terry Gross, or Larry King.
He always say "80+%" but that's just a rough estimate. I challenge him to actually tabulate this. I don't want this to be one of those horrendous generalizations where it's actually only 13%.

Morning meditation! LOVE IT! Starting off with how I want my day to go ALWAYS works. I do a little priming (Tony Robbins does it), too. The immediate hot-to-cold showers/baths are incredible, stimulates my immune system and wakes me up instantly. Cheers, Tim! Still reading your 4-hour work week book!
