This is one of your best episodes. I love the part about Tim talking about not having a problem with authority. The problem is finding strong authority figures who care as much as you do. I love the wrestling shout out around minute 20 too. Thanks Lewis.

Excellent interview, Lewis! Listened to this on the treadmill last night and like Tim said, you ask great questions. Really enjoyed how Tim talked about growing up and how his parents valued books. As a new father, it certainly had me thinking about how I want to do the same.

Surprised I get anything done (do I?) I never know where I'm going to work every day, or where I'm going to live next month... 


But at least I don't eat 18 hours of the day so don't  have to think about that.


Sweet interview!

Loved this side of Tim Ferriss! His take on being hard on yourself is very intriguing. I've never thought of it this way and I must say I do agree.

great interview! So interesting to know his parent's value on books. Explains why he put a lot of effort into his books. Also loved how he got the business idea for his supplement company....easy way to find a couple of ideas and test it out on your friends as well. Biggest takeaway was creating rituals allows you to be more free. Thanks for the interview!

Lewis (& the Greats...) Here's my Take-away:


1) The importance of structure + ritual (so that you don't waste time making decisions).

2) To be encouraged, because guys like Tim Ferriss didn't grow-up having everything.

3) To not be afraid to try something outside the box.

Love this! 


My favourite was your question about "What would you want people to say about you at your funeral?" Great food for thought :)

Lewis you have no idea how much you are influencing people around the world. I can't bring up LinkedIn to people without them mentioning your name. You are a beast brother. Keep going!
